I hope you had a lovely weekend.
Mine has busy but great Let me recap for ya…
I took Zoey on a quick walk then ran an easy 3-miler, followed by 80 pushups (4 sets of 20) and some core work. It was the perfect way to start out my day.
[smoothie in a bottle, carrots/humus, apple/almond butter, leftover salmon, soup]
I worked a few hours, taught boxing class, then knocked out a few more things before calling it a day. Since I work on Saturday morning, I can usually leave early on Friday when I have my hours for the week. I took off around 4:30pm and ran a few errands before heading home.
A friend recommended I check out Costco for some of the items I frequently buy: baby spinach, hummus, greek yogurt, almond butter, etc. I decided to go there on my way home from work (big mistake!). The place was a ZOO and I didn’t end up buying a membership, but I looked around to price compare. Jury is still out!
I do know that our container of spinach is completely empty.
Pizza night was celebrated in our house and mine was tortilla style.
I topped a brown rice tortilla with sauce, veggies, and mozzarella. We popped the pizzas on the grill (mine for about 10-minutes) and the crust turned out perfectly crispy and the veggies cooked. It was delicious!
For Colin’s, I used this recipe to make a crust (I halved it) and used 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole-wheat. He loved it!
We headed to boot camp so I could coach and Colin could participate. I put them through my “let’s make a deal” workout and it was a blast! I’ll give details later this week, but time flew by and everyone looked tired but happy when it was over.
When we got home, we walked Zoey, then I headed to CorePower for class. Saturdays are usually my easier workout day, and I really enjoyed taking a less challenging class. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a great workout, but it wasn’t crazy hard like some
I did the grocery shopping for the week then headed home to clean up the house and myself.
One of the supervisors from work (hi, Kelly!) had some extra tickets to a Cutthroats game. In case you didn’t know (which I didn’t until I looked ‘em up) the Cutthroats are a minor league hockey team. It was my first hockey experience and was a total blast. I’m sure it was more due to the company, but the game was pretty fun too!
This morning Colin and I headed out for a 6-miler then grabbed Zoey for another mile and a half. By the end we were both hungry and ready for some pancakes.
We were nearly out of Kodiak Cakes mix, so I created something new! These pancakes turned out great. They were fluffy but hearty and had great flavor.
Buckwheat-Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes
•2 tbsp. buckwheat or whole-wheat flour
•2 tbsp. almond flour
•2 tbsp. oat flour
•1/2 tsp. baking powder
•1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
•1/4 cup blueberries
•almond butter and maple syrup (for serving)
Preheat griddle pan to 350°F. In a small bowl, combine flours, baking powder, and almond milk. Whisk to combine. Pour onto griddle pan and top with blueberries. Cook 5-6 minutes, flip and cook and additional 3 minutes. Serve with toppings of choice.
After breakfast, I did a few things around the house then headed to CorePower for class. Sunday is one of my favorite teachers and is the most intense class of the week. This one is 75-minutes and is always packed. We’re talking like 65+ people! I was a sweaty, sweaty mess by the end
I hurried home to get things ready as we were having some friends over for the Super Bowl. On the menu: tortilla chips and artichoke dip, veggies and hummus, and baked chicken fingers and “veggie” chicken fingers. Plus some chocolate chip cookies.
Now I’m just getting some things ready for the week and relaxing. Ready or not, here Monday comes…
Check out minor league sports teams in your area. It makes for a fun evening out and most of the time you can get pretty good seats on the cheap!
