Heyyyyyyyyyyyy sexy lady!!!!!!!!!
Oops sorry. Gangnam Style is so stuck in my head and my veins and my muscles. How about you? Did you get a chance to try out the latest POP Cardio dance party video yet!??? If you did, I better see some hilare video responses!!! I already got some awesome sweaty pics of you guys! Loving it! More more please.
I am laying in bed just going through all of my social media. I am addicted to staying connected to you guys and it’s definitely a good/bad thing. On one hand, it means I totally love you and that everything I do, I do it because I genuinely want to! It’s 3:36am right now and I’m writing to you to let you know what’s up. But on the other hand, I am like running on this crazy imaginary fuel that may run out one day if I don’t start getting some proper sleep! People ask me all the time – how are you so happy and energized day in and day out – and lemme tell you…I have no idea!
Okay well maybe I do. I love my job and I love my friends and I love you and I love the people I surround myself with. I think positivity is so important to a thriving spirit, heart, and healthy mind. Which in turn also helps create the foundation for eating well and exercising.
I hope you are choosing to live passionately daily and CHOOSING to be happy. You are in control of your own feelings. Not anyone else or anything else. Kay? You. YOU OWN the way you react.
Today after my arm workout, I went to Whole Foods (yay!) and got some coconut flour. I’ve been meaning to get it for months so I was super excited. Check out the nutrition facts on this. Great for those of you who are eating Paleo or are going gluten free but still want something that tastes bready!
When I got home, I spent some time looking at recipes but couldn’t find anything that didn’t have too many ingredients. I hate recipes with like a million parts and a ton of instructions. Yeah, I was a Bio major but I sucked at lab!!!! I hated following instructions! Eew!!!
Oh yeah, back to coconut flour…
So I decided to make it an cooking experiment! Sometimes these don’t go so well (aka even birds won’t eat it)…but I thought what the heck, whatever!!!
GLUTEN FREE COCONUT FLOUR PANCAKES
Ingredients (1 large serving):
- 2 TBS coconut flour (60 cals, 2g fat, 8g carb, 2g protein)
- 1/2 cup egg whites (64 cals, 0g fat, 1g carb, 13g protein)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (20 cals, 1.75g fat, 2g carbs, 1g protein)
- 1/2 TBS psyllium husk (17 cals, 4g carbs)
- 1 tsp Stevia
- Pinch of salt
- Mix all ingredients together
- Place globs of the batter on oiled skillet using EVOO, Pam Spray, or coconut oil!
- Pan should be on medium or low medium heat.
- Flip after bottom starts goldening, or after about 30-45 sec…depends on your heat setting though!
- Done! Eat! Yum!
WOW! That’s actually very very impressive! Because I was STUFFED afterwards. I think I could have added some baking powder to make them fluffier. Oh well, will try again tomorrow! They tasted sort of eggy, but I enjoyed it very much. They tasted especially good with my raspberry strawberry jam sawwwce. I just microwaved 1 TBS of low sugar jam and topped it with some frozen razzes and in 20 sec I had something cool to drizzle over mah cakes! The sawwwce is probably 35 cals I reckon.
Why am I speaking like this!!???
*snaps out of it*
Oh and quick fitness fashion find!!!!
I was bad and did an unplanned Lululemon visit today and bought more than I should have. Oops!!!! I found this awesome bra that has a front closure so it makes putting it on and taking it off super easy, esp. when you’re sweaty! This way you can avoid the awkward clothes-are-too-tight-and-sticking-to-my-body-so-I-must-jump-around-to-get-it-off-get-it-off-get-it-off-me!!!!!! situation. It also has an enhancing pushup effect much like my orange Lorna Jane bra that you saw in my “Workouts to make Breasts Larger” video.
I also got not one, but two pairs of the same booty short. Let me explain. I went into the dressing room, put on the burgundy pair and it fit LIKE A DREAM. It was perfection. And as you know, I am a booty short fan to the max. I already have a million. So when I actually find one that I can call “PERFECT” – it’s totes insane in the membrane – and it’s LEGIT. So I got the black too. It’s classic, it’ll match everything. <–I’m just convincing myself now.
Thank goodness I have an instructor discount at Lululemon (it’s 15%) because that total was not ringing up to a pretty number!!!!!
Kay. I should go to bed now. Please try those coconut flour pancakes and let me know how you decide to tweak the recipe to make em fluffier!! I’d love to know!
See you soon my loves! Have a fab start to your weekend and KILL IT for CARDIO SATURDAY!!!
