This morning, I had a piece of cinnamon raisin toast with nut butter with a cup of Raspberry Chocolate coffee (BEST COFFEE I HAVE EVER HAD BTW) pre-workout.
My back felt a little off this morning after my workout yesterday. I did one of my go-to circuit workouts, Lindsay’s 5×50 workout. I LOVE IT, but I rushed through it and I think I may have sacrificed some form because I felt a pull in my back this morning. WATCH YOUR FORM PEOPLE! So today I decided to take it simple and completed Courtney’s 5-4-3-2-1 Treadmill Walk. I like intense workouts as much as the other person but sometimes it is nice to vary up your intensity levels and this workout definitely fit the bill. Despite being a walking workout, I definitely got my sweat on!
For a while I was car-less and had to resort to home workouts which forced me to get creative in my garage. I present to you my workout space:
Yup, that’s my laptop, my kindle, a copy of the workout, and speakers which I connected to my laptop. It is awesome my friends.
Afterwards I showered before preparing my post workout breakfast. (RANDOM FACT: I cannot sit down and eat post-workout until I have showered and made my bed. I’m not the only one am I?)
Breakfast was AMAZING! Probably one of the best I have ever had and that’s saying a lot because I have breakfast A LOT. I introduce to you…
Cookies N Cream Cookie Dough Pancakes (serves 1)
3 Tablespoons Pancake Mix
1 Scoop Herbalife Cookies N Cream Nutritional Shake Mix
2 Tablespoons Egg Substitute
1 Tablespoon Applesauce
3 Tablespoons Almond Milk
1 Teaspoon Flaxseed Meal
Baking powder, baking soda and salt
Check out the cookie pieces in these babies! It tasted as if I was biting into a doughy cookie. SO SO SO GOOD.
I topped mine with a mix of Trader Joe’s Chocolate Almond Butter, Cookie Butter and Almond Butter with Flaxseeds, butter and SF syrup.
EDITED: Check out these Nutrition Stats! Under 150 Calories before toppings and look at all those vitamins and minerals you are getting! This recipe is a winner.If you haven’t used Herbalife’s Nutritional Shake mixes or protein powders I suggest you do ASAP. I am OBSESSED. They come in so many different flavors and are so versatile!
Yes, I am that indecisive that I get a little of each nut butter! Actually, I always have to have at least different jars. See, I was not kidding about my obsession with pancakes and nut butter.
I’m off to tackle my to-do list for the day but I will catch you all later!
