A week or so ago I tried to make some protein pancakes…you might remember this post, saying the only way to get them down was to smother them in greek yogurt & peanut butter. Yeah, they were way to egg-y for me. Not one to be discouraged, I found this recipe and decided to give it a whirl. I changed it slightly, but I was pleasantly surprised at how they turned out. They were actually really good and weren’t overly egg-y!
1 cup old fashioned oats (uncooked, non-instant)
3/4 cup liquid egg whites
1 – 4oz cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3 packets sugar substitute
Blend all ingredients together in a blender and then cook like you would a regular pancake! It makes 4 pretty large pancakes or several smaller ones.
See how fluffy they are!

I’m not giving up trying other recipes since this one is a little high in carbs, but it is yummy, so it will be a favorite until I find a better one. 😉
LiveFit Update — day 10, legs & calves
Leg day again! Exercises were the same as last week, but due to an issue with squats, I added an exercise or two to make up for it. I didn’t go as heavy on my leg presses and was able to complete all three sets of 12 without stopping, but the last reps were tough. I went to squats next and during my first set, my inner right thigh, close to my pelvic bone, was hurting every time I squatted and it wasn’t a good pain so I decided it was best not to complete the exercise. I added in the outer thigh machine for 3 sets of 12 and also did 10 min on the stairmill. I was ticked off that I couldn’t get my squats done this week. Maybe my body will cooperate next week. 😐
