Happy New Week! Well, technically it’s Tuesday but yesterday was Martin Luther King Day and I had it off so it feels like today is the start of the week.
I did a lot of stuff this weekend. If you missed my posts here are some links to get caught up.
- The Frost or Fog 5k in Chico, I got 4th!!!
- Paradise, Ca (it’s literally a real place) and wine tasting
- This week’s inTUEative Tuesday Post
I made some killer healthy pancakes this morning!
Banana Bread Protein Pancakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Keywords: fry breakfast dairy-free gluten-free banana
Ingredients (2 large pancakes)
- 1/4 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon/sugar mixture or 1 tsp of each
- 1 ripe banana (the more ripe the better)
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
Mash together until batter becomes smooth. Go with your own taste on how smooth you’d like your banana. Chunks vs. Smooth…. it’s a tough call.
Pour batter onto a preheated griddle. I made 2 large pancakes but minis would be fun too.
Heat until partially cooked and flip. Once golden brown put on a plate and enjoy.
You can also find this recipe on my Recipe Page!!
I topped mine with peanut butter for some added protein. I figured if I was going there why not go all the way?! These pancakes are pretty hearty. Definitely eat ‘em on an empty stomach!
I also had a cup of Teeccino and soymilk. :mrgreen:
Weekly Workout Plan!
Here’s what’s on my plan for this week.
- Monday: Stretch and Strengthen
- Tuesday: 3.5 mile run
- Wednesday: 2 mile run or cross training
- Thursday: 3.5 mile run and strengthen
- Friday: REST
- Saturday: 40 minutes cross training
- Sunday: 5 miles :shock:
I skipped yesterday’s strengthen so I’ll have to put it in after one of my runs this week. Probably tomorrow after my easy 2 miles. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve never ran 5 miles all at once and it seems so scary!! When I played college basketball my coach had us run 5 miles every day during the summer to stay conditioned but I had a mental block about 5 miles so I did 3 in the morning and 2-3 at night every day. I don’t know, it’s got me kinda wigged out…
Last Week’s Workout Recap!
I’m logging all my training and miles on The Daily Mile. I’ve used it a little in the past but never consistently so I was so surprised when I saw me weekly recap stats e-mail in my inbox. Look at what I did.
If that’s not motivation I don’t know what is! I had a Rockin’ Training Week. ;-) I guess now I’ll have to do “weekly workout recaps” too.
If you use The Daily Mile search for Maren Kennedy and become my friend! I’d love to send you lots of motivation!!
tell me about you!! I want to know……
What get’s you motivated?!
I really like surprise colorful e-mails. :mrgreen:
Would you ever go into say Starbucks or any other quick stop type place in your PJ’s?
Yes… it’s been done many times before.
Will you do your strength workout at the gym next to an uuber ripped guy? Imagine Hulk Hogen.
No!! I get freaked out and skip every time.
