Happppy Thursday! Just got done eating some amazing banana chocolate chip pancakes 🥞 😋 I topped them with banana slices, coconut flakes, granola, and pure maple syrup. Recipe below!
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 Tbsp coconut sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 cup @milkadamia
1 small banana mashed (1/3 cup)
Mini chocolate chips
Heat pan to medium low. In a large bowl add the flour, coconut sugar, baking soda and salt. Whisk together until mixed well. Make a big crater in the middle and add the milk, banana, and chocolate chips. Mix together until there are no more dry spots, but be careful not to mix too much or the pancakes will be tough. Spray cooking spray onto the heated pan and cook 1-2 minutes on each side until bubbles form.
Wish I was curled up with this plate of pancakes instead of walking to class in the rain !! Not a fan of the weather here this week 😩 But here’s what’s on this plate of goodness- @kodiakcakes topped with @waldenfarmsinternational syrup + 2 scrambled eggs + blueberries 😍 definitely missing breakfasts like these! Have a great Thursday everyone!!!!

Yesterday I couldn’t be on Instagram for more than 10 seconds before it crashed, so I finally had to delete the app and reinstall it, but it deleted all my saved posts. Some I had copies of but others were lost. But things could be so much worse so I refuse to get upset over something this meaningless. So hang tight as I try to restock my content again for y’all! Happy Thursday friends 😊
Breakfast: @siggisdairy vanilla cinnamon yogurt topped with fresh strawberries, raspberries, @purely_elizabeth chocolate peanut butter granola, a drizzle of @88acres NEW WATERMELON SEED BUTTER, and a sprinkle of @manitobaharvest hemp seeds!
You’ve been lying to yourself. I know this because I used to do the same thing, I still do it sometimes to be honest.
If you’re dieting, maybe you’re tracking your intake. If you’re working with me, then you are definitely tracking your intake. Question for you. How many bites of things did you take yesterday that didn’t get logged?
For the record, I’m not saying tasting a bite of your cooking is going to do anything to your waist line. What I am saying, is that every small handful here and there, every bite off your husband’s plate (don’t act like you don’t do this, I finish George’s food on the regular) or your kids’ snacks…. THAT SHIT ADDS UP! And it adds up fast.
That goes for measuring too. Before I get a bunch of hate - no I do not think you have to measure your food every day for the rest of your life. However, if you’re trying to lose weight… how can you know if you’re on the right track if you have no idea how much you’re eating? How can you say it’s time to decrease portions if you have no idea what your current portions are?
The numbers don’t lie.
If you ate it, it counts.
Stop lying to yourself.
Much later than we are use to, our routine has been thrown way off the last couple days - and will continue to be thrown off for weeks to come - but we are flexible and thankful these workouts can be done in the pockets of our time wherever we are at!
one of the many meanings behind my #sunflower tattoo🌻 I spent most of my early 20s depressed and anxious about where my life was headed and worried about whether I was making the right personal and professional decisions. And I let myself become so consumed by it that it landed me in the emergency room on the eve of my 23rd birthday. I was literally making myself sick with fear. That day, I vowed to pry myself out of the darkness and turn towards all of the things in life that lit me up without worrying about the opinions of others. I vowed to make a positive change and grow through what I was going through rather than letting myself wallow in it. I vowed to take my pain and turn it into the fuel I need to finally 🌻b l o o m🌻 into the person I always knew I could be. And guess what? You can, too👊✨
On a cool, drizzly day you may be tempted to throw on a cardigan or hurry inside, but spending time in cool weather could provide an extra calorie boost. When your body shivers in mildly cold temperatures (researchers defined this as around 64 degrees) it burns energy, which revs your
metabolism and burns fat.
