Well, I was supposed to start my LiveFit workout regime yesterday, but life got in the way. I know, it’s no excuse, but it did. I had errands that couldn’t wait and I wasn’t able to make it to the gym. However, I did start eating better yesterday and logging my food via MyFitnessPal. I even made protein pancakes and had an enormous breakfast that completely filled me up.
And then…the afternoon slump hit and my mood totally changed. I really wanted to take a nap, but being that my kids needed me to help with homework and taxi them to extra curricular activities, a nap just wasn’t possible. So, my body’s defense was to be hungry! I was voracious and pacing around the kitchen seeing everything I shouldn’t eat was making me cranky. I didn’t eat anything super bad, but I didn’t do as well as the first half of my day.
On the upside, I officially signed up for BodyBuilding.com’s body transformation challenge! I took my before pics (to be shared soon!) and I’m ready to go!
Here’s my (somewhat eaten) breakfast. Sorry for the crap picture. I was so hungry that I just dove in and then as an after thought, grabbed my phone to snap a pic. It’s protein pancakes in flower shapes (because that’s the only pancake pan I have right now), layered with thinly sliced banana, drizzled with natural peanut butter and topped with 0% Fage Greek yogurt (mixed with truvia).
This was my first attempt at protein pancakes and they were only edible when I added all this yumminess on top! I’ll share a recipe when I find one that is actually tasty. Speaking of recipes, I made my first batch of protein bars and I altered them slightly, but they are still very edible! Recipe coming soon! 🙂
