>chocolate covered strawberry protein pancakes

>i apologize for the emotional post last night. i get in moods like that. especially around this time of year. in fact march-april is ALWAYS my most stressful time each year.

anyway, this morning i woke up feeling extremely tired and “fat.” does anyone else ever wake up just feeling fat? because i have generalized anxiety, i have learned i’m very in tune with my body and i can “feel” when my body changes and anything physical that is happening to it. it’s weird.

that feeling quickly changed after i went to bootcamp today. i always feel awesome afterwards because our trainers push us to the limit and make sure we get the most out of the 55 minutes we are there. today we did stations…which i LOVE.

6 stations, 3 exercises at each station, 5 minutes of as many rounds you can do.

i was each station by myself, which i was okay with. i dont like the competitiveness.

station 1:
wall balls – 15 reps (use a 14-20 lb ball. squat and throw the ball up to the wall when you come up)
donkey kicks – 20 reps –> picture of it here you jump back and forth with your legs on the floor and the wall
throw downs – 10 reps (use 14-20 lb ball and throw the ball towards the bottom of the wall

station 2:
row 250 m (on highest level)
plank (move up and down) – 20 reps
side/side plyo (aka skaters) – 20 reps

station 3:
prowler push – x2 (low push on the way down, high push on the way back)
push press w/ barbell – 15 reps (i used a 25 lb barbell)
ball slams (10 lb ball) – 10 reps

after this station we did a 3 lap run

station 4:
jump rope – 40 reps
tricep dips – 20 reps
burpees – 10 reps

station 5:
mt. climbers – 30 reps
renegade rows (10 lb dumbells) – 20 reps
russian twists (10 lb plate) – 20 reps

station 6:
box jumps – 15 reps
lunges w/ medicine ball overhead – 10 reps
stairs – 2x

walk 1 lap

after this sweat sesh, i had protein ‘cakes on the mind. per usual to help replenish my muscles.

chocolate-covered strawberry protein pancakes
yields 3 pancakes (serves 1)

1/2 scoop chocolate protein whey powder
1/4 cup egg whites
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
2 tbsp buckwheat flour (or any other flour)
2 raw strawberries (frozen would work if thawed)
1/2 mashed banana (or applesauce would work)
pinch of baking powder, pinch of cinnamon
1 packet pure via (stevia or any other natural sweetener)
almond milk to moisten

toppings are endless. i chose unsweetened shredded coconut, peanut flour sauce, and sf maple syrup

nutrition stats: 320 calories, 7g fat, 43g carbs, 11g fiber, 21g protein

my topping for these pancakes was “peanut sauce” made with 2 tbsp trader joe’s peanut flour mixed with water and cinnamon

since it’s april 1st today, i want to start a challenge for myself.
– train for my 8.8 mile run that’s happening may 1st
– do yoga at least 3 times a week
– track my meals on livestrong
