When I looked on my workout schedule for the day, I scrolled down to see that yesterday was supposed to be my higher carb day since I had legs on the strength menu. I also saw a link for recipes and I clicked on the pumpkin spice pancake recipe – it said each pancake was only 64 calories! But then I read the recipe. Um, I did have raw pumpkin, I didn’t have unsweetened almond milk and I didn’t want to waste 4 eggs just for the whites, so I rewrote the recipe with what I had on hand.
- 1.5 cups oat flour
- 2 tablespoons Splenda
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon of cinnaomn
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 can of fat free evaporated milk
- Mix the dry ingredients well, then add the remaining ingredients, stirring just until incorporated. Let the batter sit for 15 minutes and then cook 3-4 minutes per side.
I just ground regular oats in my coffee grinder.
Holy yum. Each pancake comes in at 110 calories, 1.9 fat, 18 carbs, 2.5 fiber and 5.1 protein – a whopping 79% of your daily vitamin A in just one pancake! I served mine with half an ounce of pecans and 1/4 cup pancake syrup, and this whole plate only comes in at 339 calories.
I hit up the gym, and boy was it packed! I had hamstrings, glutes and calves. The routine took me 55 minutes to finish that routine! I also had a new PR – I did 40 pounds for the stiff-legged barbell deadlift.
Hannah texted me when I was doing my leg curls – had to send her a pic!
When I got back from the gym I was hangry! It was after three, so I didn’t want to eat too much – I ended up heating up some potato soup I had in the fridge.
We have so much leftover turkey, I asked Tony what he felt like having turkey wise, and he said “can we just have turkey sandwiches?” He loves his with lettuce, mayo and cranberry sauce. Me? I made a sort of sub with mine – turkey, a couple slices of pepperoni, a slice of bacon, and cheese and I put that in the toaster oven to make it like Potbelly’s. Added some pickles and I was good to go! Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that I drizzled some sriracaha honey mustard sauce over the sammie!
So I did my six month WI today! But . . . I am not posting the results until Monday’s post. If you want to find out sooner – you can follow me on Instagram – biz319. All I can tell you is that I am really proud of myself!
I have an errand to run later this morning, then I am meeting up with Hannah for coffee this afternoon! She worked on Thanksgiving and yesterday so this was our first chance to get together.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend – see you Monday!
