Greek yogurt pancakes

Image
It would appear that pancakes have become my new favorite breakfast. I have a few different recipes that I switch between but I have Greek yogurt to use up and I really don't care for it on its own - I like it in smoothies and now pancakes!! I have four now in my Recipe Index. They all come out a bit differently so try them all out and see which one is your favorite.

My sick long weekend

Image
And by sick I don't mean awesome, I mean I spent all weekend without a voice and mostly at home. I had a few family things to attend but I was basically decoration that ate food.
I met up with friends on Friday night with a sore throat and by the time I got home around midnight I had no voice left. I woke up on Saturday with barely a whisper and painful coughing. I went to Ikea with my aunt on Saturday afternoon and bought myself a new coffee table and an end table for my computer. I had it sitting on a Rubbermaid bucket haha. Definitely an improvement.

Another pancake recipe

I'm always on the search for new recipes and breakfast ideas. I made these pancakes a few months ago and I liked them but I tried a variation of that recipe and have had them all three mornings of this long weekend.

Camping foods and snacks

Image
I was supposed to leave for camping last night after visiting with a group of friends for a friend who is in from out of town but I'm sick (yes, again/still) so I decided I shouldn't go out so I can get some extra rest. I sleep bad at home and I sleep even worse at other peoples' houses and even worse in a camper or tent.

Feels great to be back on track!

I made it through yesterday without any candy, go me! This will power thing is cool :P Here is most of what I ate yesterday. Sometimes I'm just so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of my meal or snack before it's gone. For breakfast I had a spinach omelet with avocado toast.

Back on track (again)

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a super fun weekend but consumed way too many calories. Weekends are definitely the culprit for a lot of people who work out consistently but don't see any progress when it comes to losing fat.

You really cannot out exercise a bad diet and anyone who doesn't commit

My weekend - wine fest & tapas (and a hangover)

Image
I had such a fun weekend but man did I feel like crap yesterday. Friday night I had a sundae, went for a walk, and then had a bonfire with my mom. Saturday I worked out, vacuumed, got new tires for my car, and then went to my cousin's for our own wine festival because there was one going on in Winnipeg this weekend. Her boyfriend prepared a tapas style assortment of delicious foods
