It is finally starting to sink in that in 48 hours my happy little behind will be on his way to Florida!!!!! I am so stoked about my second Half Marathon I could, and may, puke! 😉 Joking…..but in all seriousness, I hope Kim and Emily are prepared for my flying-nervousness-craziness.
Woke up early and headed to my KidFit class for my Cardio Circuit. I played a techno/dancey version of “Party In The USA” for the kids, and you would have thought that Miley Cyrus herself had entered the building and was giving out $100.00 bills. The girls were screaming and seemed to be on the verge of tears/seizures. That girl really knows how to hook the elementary crowd. Oh well, whatever works…and that song most certainly motivated them.
Headed home and had time to make a nice breakfast that I had forgotten about since I got it at Trader Joe’s, in North Carolina!
(I cut the recipe that follows into 1/3rd, since it was only me…and I only wanted three small pancakes of glee)
I decided not to add butter at all, and added a dollop of Greek Yogurt, instead. Mixed up the batter, and then decided to go for three different styles of pancakes. First up was walnut!
Next was Almond Butter Swirl:
And last but not least, blueberry!
Are these the perfect “golden brown” or what??? Kudos, Trader Joe’s!
For the topping, I heated up an old favorite, and stuck with the pumpkin theme:
thinned it a bit with some Almond Milk…
Added some fruit on the side (Kiwi with skin…it’s how I roll) and a nectarine:
Can I just say that these may be the best pancakes I have ever had, seriously! So sweet and delicious!
I settled into the living room complete with pancakes, Hoarders on TV, and the puppies. Good morning.
Who needs a blanket when you have two furry heating pads on either side of you?! It was all I could do not to drift off into unconsciousness. I fought it, however…and got extremely productive for a change. Oh, check out this pic….I think it belongs in National Geographic *insert thick Australian accent* “CRIKEY!!! CHECK OUT THE CHOMPAHS ON THAT LITTLE BUGGAH!”
Ok, so I gave him some pancake. 🙂 Could you resist?!?!
Oli is pretty cute, too.
Notice how she uses my knee as a chin rest. Bless it.
So after breakfast/pup time…I had a mini freak out, and decided to start prepping for Florida. Question, how big is a carry on bag?!?! Is my ginormous gym bag/duffel to large to fit in the overhead? I am a total flying newb. It’s an epic fail. I also went on a mini cleaning spree. I swear, I think watching “Hoarders” is the best thing to motivate people to clean. I always feel uber disgusting after watching that show. Here is my tentative “To-Do” list:
- Find Carry-On Bag
- List the clothing items I need to pack
- Download/Create running mix for the race (Suggestions?!?!)
- Confirm that all my classes are being taught by other instructors
- Think about what food/snacks to pack
Sorry, I tend to be a list person.
OH! Rachel finished the pictures!!!! Here they are! I love that she called the album “A Blog Boy’s Photoshoot” LOL!
I think I look particularly Emo in most all of the pics, but I think Rachel is an AMAZING photographer! Check out my pics, as well as her other clients! I adore this girl!
