I’ve Got a Double Whammy Post-Holiday Monday Blues

 

I don’t know about you guys, but it sure was difficult to get up this morning, plus it didn’t help that I stayed up until 10 pm watching Hitched for the Holidays, with heartthrob Joey Lawrence.

 

Typically I am in bed and reading from 9 until 10, or before if I’m exhausted, that way I don’t have the annoying TV syndrome to keep me wired and awake late into the night. Last night I made an exception since I was in the holiday mood, and I just have to gush over how funny and cute the movie was!

 

By the time I was in brushed and in bed, it was a little after 10, and I HAD to listen to Lisha explain a new show on MTV, so I was ready for shuteye around quarter of 11. Ick.

 

In all seriousness, have you guys heard of the show called, Catfish? We think the title is a ripoff of Plentyoffish. According to Lisha, it’s almost like, “True Life,” but the people on the show have been dating someone online for years + and they contact this man who I’m assuming is the host of the show to schedule a meeting.

 

Just read Lisha’s descriptions:

 

 

 

Basically I NEED to watch this show, especially since I love online dating! Luckily I’ve never had horror stories like this before, and only some guys have looked a little different in person.

This morning I woke up 5 minutes before my alarm was scheduled to go off. Isn’t that the worst? I was so excited to look at the clock and get a warm greeting that I still had several extra hours to sleep, but not this morning.

 

I dragged myself out of bed and pouted in the bathroom before I went for a miserable run. My body is definitely not used to running this early, even if it had only been since Wednesday that I ran at 6.

 

Morning Workout

 

  • 3.7 mile run
  • 3 sets of 15 stair push-ups
  • 1 minute plank and 30 seconds each side
  • 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
  • 50 heel touchers
  • 100’s abs
  • 30 scissors
  • Stretching

 

It felt great to be pressed for time again and be able to get down to business with my workouts. I think lacking that time frame to get my workouts in on the weekends result in me ignoring my core or strength work. I lollygag on the weekends, what can I say, it’s a talent.

 

Before heading out the door to work, I enjoyed half of a juicy grapefruit and a chocolate cookies & cream protein shake. I had to mix it up this morning since I ran out of the protein I was using before, but damn, that shake was so satisfying!

 

I didn’t have time to snap a picture but into the shake went:

 

  • 8 oz almond milk
  • ½ scoop each of chocolate protein and cookies & cream protein
  • Handful of ice cubes
  • 3 frozen banana slices

 

 2 hours later I had a more substantial 2nd half of my breakfast and enjoyed a Chobani power bowl which included Mango Chobani and ½ TBSP each of: flax seed, raw oatmeal and chia seeds.

 

Delish!

 

I have about half a day left of work before I have my 2nd training session with Heather, my personal trainer!

 

And a special Happy Birthday to my mom and an extra special Happy Anniversary to parents!

3-Ingredient Healthy Pancakes, Christmas Shopping & Joey Lawrence

The past 2 afternoons I have spent Christmas shopping at the Outlets and the Mall. I seriously need to stop this shopping or at least learn to do it all in one day.

When I entered Macy’s, I was greeted with Santa’s Mail Box and a table for the kiddos to write their letters to Santa. I held back from writing a letter, in fact, I was going to get in closer for an additional picture of the letters, but I heard a girl behind me ask if she could write one and I felt just a little creepy hovering over the table. 3 years ago when Mike and I were Christmas shopping, we stopped at the table so that I could write a letter to Santa. Yes, as a junior in college I asked Santa to make Jay, my college boyfriend, my official boyfriend.

I browsed around Le Gourmet Chef and fell in LOVE with these cookie dishes and holders. I’m debating purchasing a few for my family’s Yankee Swap, or just for myself. 😉

I also hovered over the graham cracker pretzels and gingerbread dip for a little too long. The combo of both flavors created a party in my mouth and I could easily see myself eating the entire jar in one sitting.

After a day of shopping I went to Gold’s to complete my legs and arms workout before going home to demolish my healthy 3-ingredient pancakes.

The texture, taste, and appearance were the best yet. So perfect. This time, I played around with the amounts of ingredients and am happy to report that this is a recipe to keep!

3 Ingredient Healthy Pancakes

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 banana mashed
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

All you have to do is combine the above ingredients in a bowl, whisk it together until you can get a majority of the coconut clumps out, and pour 2 equal sized pancakes on a pan. After that, just monitor the pancakes to get your desired look. I personally love them crispy and lightly browned.

*I do have to mention that I did need to add a splash of almond milk to the batter to thin it out a bit, so it technically should be 4 ingredient pancakes but I do what I want! 😉

Sunday

Today hasn’t been too exciting to report a full-on novel, but for those who actually care, here are the highlights:

  • 4 mile run, 1 mile walk, core and back work at the gym
  • Christmas shopping
  • the official start of the Christmas Pandora station.. woo woo! 🙂
  • Christmas with the Kranks & Home Alone

Now I’m off to prep tomorrow’s meals before watching Hitched for the Holidays, a Hallmark Christmas movie with the hunkanator, Joey Lawrence. He better have his shirt off so I can drool over his lovely muscles! 😉

P.S, back to work tomorrow to end the holiday weekend. Eww.
