Okay wow, hello my friends. These last couple of days coupled with the grimey weather have not been okay in my life. My legs have hurt, I’ve had too much school work and not been in a really good mood. I’m not depressed I swear, I’m just having some. I shall probably enlighten you sometime later in the month. I’m doing fine physically and so is everyone in my life so it’s not health problems don’t worry.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who has heart attacks on the treadmill. Seriously-I don’t know how people go all out on those things. The day I go under 8 minutes is the day I will award myself with 1000 pancakes and ice-cream to the max.
Sorry to be a mysterious Martha. Eh hem lets move on to the last few days.
When I study I eat… A lot of pancakes. I hide in the bunker of my room and lock myself with pounds and pounds of pancakes and waffles. I can eat them if I study…it works for me and you should try it.
Meet my two favorite types of sweet pancakes, please don’t judge me because I finally chose some.
The runner up goes to pumpkin. You are always looking fine, pumpkin and have that deep orange and natural glow that some of us only dream of…
And the winner…
Dark chocolate with orange zest..go figure since I did say it was my favorite type of chocolate. I don’t remember if I ever posted the recipe (actually I know I did, I just can’t find it.) But the beautiful deep chocolate with a nice aftertaste of orange melts in my mouth everytime.
Ingredients and such:
½ cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup dark cocoa powder
¼ cup grated orange zest
¼ cup orange juice
About ¼ cup water but change to your consistency
And of course sweetener to your liking-I like to add 1 truvia but you know that’s me and I like the bitterness.
Pictures don’t give these baby girls justice (I mean in reality they look like burnt pancakes…). They are fabulous and why I have deemed them the pancake of the month award which means I’m aloud to eat them for every meal if I chose too and you can’t judge me. So there.
But to amuse you-I do eat other breakfast foods throughout the week.
6 ounces greek yogurt
1/ 2 cup cherries, raspberries, and strawberries
1 scoop protein powder
into the magic bullet for the win. (+1000 tablespoons sprinkles…).
Anywho today was less busy thank goodness. A big time Syracuse Math professor drove all the way up to come give a lecture to the high scholars in the math class that I observe. So I went. It was pretty interesting if I do say so myself and I learned about integrals and derivatives that I learned calc classes ago.
On the working out front, I took the last couple of days off from running because my legs have been feeling like jelloooo (with four o’s obviously). What a great move because today I had an awesomesauce run. As I posted on my dailymile account, “Today my legs told me to run quickly.” I ran my typical 7 mile loop around town and it even stopped hailing for the hour I was out. Listening to your body is always good.
Questions for you:
1. What is your favorite chocolate combination?
2. Do you have a set schedule for speed workouts, or do them when your legs are feeling the bomb.com?
