Weekends are what I live for (I don’t think I’m alone here). I have the best people in my life and I look forward to every moment with each person I spend time with. Friday my boyfriend man and I went on a double date with Mollie and her man! Sushi was the best decision ever, and I made sure to get a picture of my seaweed salad so my bloggy bestie, Leslee can see how much we really are twinsies! I can’t help but be super lame this morning, I apologize.
Sake bombs may have made it into our
classy fun evening.
Me and my mannnnn!
Saturday morning I got adventurous and decided to wing it based on several recipes I had seen to make these pancakes. I dreamt about them all night on Friday so I just HAD to make some Saturday morning.
What happens when a Saturday morning breakfast is the highlight of your weekend?
You’re getting old.
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 6 oz package of vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
whatever you want to top it with
I began by mashing the bananas up until they were smooth and then I just added everything else and mixed really well. I added more milk for consistency purposes, but I didn’t measure that. You guys can figure it out if you ever recreate this. I put some canola oil on the pan and let them cook away! They turned out SO GOOD. I never successfully make things this fancy in the kitchen and I was so pleased! UGH! Take me back to Saturday morning and these pancakes! I topped them with melted blackberry jam and some fresh blackberries. Heavenly.
Later on, I hit the gym. I had taken Wednesday and Friday off this week and didn’t want to take three days off so in spite of the awful storms and rainy weather, I dragged it to the gym.
I’d like to thank every blogger who talked about their races this weekend – you guys are the ONLY reason I went to the gym. I even saw the lovely Picky Runner had run 15 miles via her instagram (girl, so awesome!) so I had to do something. I am so glad I did – I knocked out a 5k and discovered a new favorite Pandora station: 80’s workout! Woooo! Billy Joel played a key role in a strong finish. We didn’t start the fireeeeeeee!
Later on, my boyfriend and I made a delightful dinner of Costco seasoned salmon and sautéed zucchini and squash. It hit the spot!
Yesterday was supposed to be just as rainy and gross as Saturday but when we woke up, it was surprisingly lovely and therefore a run was in store for the day! I’m feeling super positive about my run yesterday! Cinco for Cinco de Mayo! Wooooo!
I was in a good groove and so was The Senator! It felt great to get the run in before the day’s festivities so I didn’t have to feel guilty
inhaling enjoying numerous margaritas and baskets of chips and salsa.
And finally, The Senator and I want to wish you a warm and wonderful Monday – no matter the weather outside (it’s super gloomy here in Atlanta, grey skies and all!).
He was being fairly adorable so I couldn’t resist sharing his cute face.
What was the highlight of your weekend? Mine was food involved, duh.
How were your races!? I’m so excited to hop on to the reader and find out how everyone did!!
What do you do to workout when it’s nasty outside?
