I very rarely blog on the weekends, but I’m working on being a bit more accountable about my eating habits.  Translation: not eating eating a bunch of crap on the weekends.  This weekend went pretty smoothly on the healthy eating front.

I was supposed to go home and spend Father’s Day with my folks but after my mini meltdown on Friday my parents graciously told me that they thought I should probably take this weekend to focus on work, and catching up on it.  Which is exactly what I did.  This weekend was super productive, I cleaned my house which was direly needed. I did laundry which I hadn’t done in almost a month!  I caught up on a lot of work.  I caught up on some personal projects I let go neglected.   I even hit up a spin class!

I feel 9000% better.  A weekend in seclusion, catching up on life was exactly what I needed.  Thanks mom and dad for reigning in my crazy 😉 .

Saturday

Brunch

This weekend I discovered the beauty of oatmeal/egg white pancakes.  I’m trying to cut back on sugar, so instead of syrup I heated up almond butter and poured that on top.  Delish!

Oatmeal Protein Pancakes:

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Blend all ingredients together (I used my immersion blender), then cook ’em up like a regular pancake.  For the ones above I added some frozen raspberries for some extra tang.
