Post-Workout Grapefruit Sherbet [Recipe] + WIAW

You know it’s hot when your shoulders sweat.

At least I wipe off my bench at the gym! 

If I do cardio, I prefer to do it after I lift so I don’t get too tired.  The problem is that it’s a 10 minute jog to the gym, so I feel like I should just add on another 20 and be done with it.  Yesterday was one of those days.  By the time I arrived at the gym I was burning up and covered in sweat.

Lifting after that was hard at first, but I got into the groove.  I felt bad about being so sweaty in the weight section, but hey… it IS a gym.  And I am a good citizen of the gym world – I always use the stray to clean off my sweat puddles.  Unlike some other people.

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes [Gluten-Free Recipe]

Pancakes are never a bad idea.

Especially when you have a super-ripe banana. 

My bananas have two speeds: too green or too brown.  How do I miss that window of a perfectly yellow banana?  I guess I can’t complain if it results in pancakes!

Roasted Garlic Matzo Ball Chicken Soup [Recipe]

Soup in August?

When you’re sick, that’s a must. 

Some of my souper creations were chilled, but the recipe I’m going to share today is for a hot soup often referred to as Jewish Penicillin.

Vegas caught a summer cold.  How you can get a cold in the summer, I have no idea… but it happens to me about once a year.  And apparently to Vegas.  I decided to cure her with a big bowl of Matzo Ball Chicken Soup.

S’mores Protein Pancakes [Gluten-Free Recipe]

S’mores don’t have to wait for dessert.

I mean, what ISN’T good in pancake form?

I still had graham crackers and marshmallows leftover from my S’mores Brownies… I had to use them some how!  Why not for breakfast as a pancake?

Maybe it’s a little strange to have a campfire dessert first thing in the morning,  but it sure is good!

Revisiting Strange But Good

Normalcy* has returned.

*I use that term loosely.

Vegas and I made it back from Vegas leaving the 115 degree temps behind.  The sun is out again in San Diego and it’s a balmy 75 degrees.

I feel like I'm on fire (ball). Thank you Las Vegas. 🔥

Things I’m Loving + WIAW

I haven’t felt like blogging lately.

Which is why on Monday I just didn’t. 

If you don’t have anything to say, I find it’s best not to force it.  No that there isn’t a lot of awesome going on… I’m just busy living life!

Here’s a little bit of some things I’ve been loving…

Leg day… but I’m not going to lie. I still might order this shirt and take a shot.

Strawberry Cinnamon Protein Pancakes + WIAW

I lost Vegas.

Not literally, thank god. 

We’ve been doing a little 21 day reset.  Vegas said she’d give it a week and then see if she wanted to keep going.  She lasted a week like a champion… but then I lost her.

Actually, we both went a little off the reservation Saturday night.  I got back on track Sunday, but Vegas was done.  She’s still been basically eating whatever I eat… just with a side of caffeine and peanut M&Ms.  She had no complaints about the protein pancakes we had for breakfast (more on that below).

Resetting My Diet + WIAW

All good things must come to an end.

Until I figure out a way to live in Europe.

I’m a firm believer in balance and enjoying life.  Enjoying is just what we did in Greece.  There were tons of good eats, alllll the drinks, and a nice break from the gym (though we walked a LOT).  Vegas and I had a blast and soaked up every moment.  Coming off of that I have no regrets, but feel ready to get back to a healthier diet.
