Happy WIAW!! But is it Friday yet? Goodness this week has been driving me nuts! I just feel so sluggish and out of it, maybe it’s the change in weather? I don’t really lead a stressful life (compared to most, my life is pretty simple!) but I can think of a few things that might be overwhelming me right now. Needless to say, I’m just ready for a day of nothing!
Were you guys aware that yesterday was National Pancake Day?! I made sure that I celebrated accordingly with a huge plate of pancakes!
Coconut Flour Pancakes
- 1/4 C coconut flour
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 C almond milk
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- dash salt
- dash cinnamon
Mix everything well. Heat up a skillet and add a bit of coconut oil. Pour batter into pan by 1/4C and cook. I topped mine with 1 naner and 2T pb2 along with 1tsp of cocoa powder mixed up with some water.
Clearly I don’t mess around when it comes to pancakes and chocolate.
After breakfast I walked my mom’s dog Reese, then came home to get my real work out in! I opted for some hill sprints and bodyweight work.
- 5 min warm up jog
- 40 secs at 8.0 with incline at 8%
- 1 min at 4.0 with incline at 8%
Repeat sprints 10x. I finished it up with a 1 mile cool down jog at 3% incline. Legs were fried! Then I hit the floor for some BOSU pushups, squats, and crunches. I was tired, sweaty, and spent, just how I like it!
SALAD BEAST!! Romaine topped with brown rice, black beans, corn, peas, salsa + hummus, feta cheese and edamame guacamole.
I don’t typically make a lot of salads at home because for some reason, they always come out really bad. This one however, had my taste buds singing from start to finish!
My 1st Zevia soda! I picked these babies up for the Superbowl so that I could join in with the rest of my soda-obsessed family, and I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor! No, it doesn’t taste exactly like root beer, but the flavor was still delicious. I’m excited to go back and see what else they have!

FYI, I am going to be having another giveaway soon!! I’ll explain the details as it gets closer, but let’s just say it’s a way for me to show you guys some love. Stick around for it!
Did you celebrate National Pancake Day?
What is one food item that you can never seem to make as well at home? Mine is salad!!
