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.


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!
