Is this some sort of spin-off of the Aguilera classic???
Nope….it was breakfast!
Batter in a bottle?!?! Surely you jest.
It was actually delicious!
I headed over to the Hood’s this morning for our usual Saturday morning breakfast, this time…pancakes!
We made normal ones…
And pecan beauties…
These guys were so good. The thought of pancakes under air pressure seemed a bit off, but they were just like pancakes should be! Plus, I guess since they incorporate more air, they were way less calories…which obviously just mean more were eaten. ;-)
I made 6 minis, and diced up a nice pear. Cinnamon and a drizzle of Almond Butter completed the meal!
Some brown sugar may have been thrown in for giggles.
Check out their website for more info! Such a fun breakfast.
Also needed some major coffee lurvin’ to make it through two classes:
After breakfast it was time to head to the YMC-izzle for Yoga! I’m not going to lie, it was a major but kicker this morning, which is exactly what I needed. She had us up on the wall!
I am absolutely loving me some Yoga. I can feel myself becoming more flexible, and being able to take each pose a bit deeper. It’s so neat to feel improvement! Flexibility is something that is so easily taken for granted. For someone who is even moderately active, Yoga does so much good.
Here are just a few of the benefits.
Directly after Yoga headed to Spin! Class was great this morning, aside from one small problem.
I was completely and totally exhausted.
My body had had enough this week. I did three hardcore weight days in a row starting on Wednesday (ps, BAD idea….you always need a rest day in between weight sessions) and my body had just had all it could take. Pushed through the hour, and faked ALOT of weight/resistance. I had to call on my inner GaGa and put on my puh-puh-puh Poker Face, puh-puh Poker Faaaaaaace.
Point is. LISTEN to your body. If you know you have had enough, do not risk overtraining! Take a rest day, and let your body recover. Tomorrow I am doing nothing, which will do my body/mind/spirit 10x more good then busting it out in the gym. Ok, I am stepping off that soapbox.
Since I am celebrating Easter tonight back at the Hood’s, I pretty much have just snacked all day in anticipation of the goodies to come. Here is a brief synopsis of the eats:
Started off with some Kashi Blueberry Field, and Blueberry Chobani….are we sensing a theme here?!
Purple goo, FTW!
Later chomped on some raw veggies (carrots, brocc, asparagus) and my faye-voh-right pine nute hummus!
Later…snacked on a Lara, and some grapes (I swear, all this food was spread out over the course of 6 hours, regardless of how it appears. ;-) )
Well, the time has come…the eggs are boiled….the dye is ready….and my stomach is hungry again.
Everyone have a safe and wonderful Easter tomorrow….regardless of how you celebrate, find good food…good times…and good friends.
