Day Nine – Pancake Day

All I’ve seen plastered across social media today (TORTURE) is pictures of everyone’s pancake stacks, dripping in syrup or Nutella but Pancake Day does not have to be avoided – there are healthy options out there! The recipes for Protein Pancakes are all over the internet; but these are not always easy and often unsuccessful from what I have read!

Tonight Brandon found an easy two-ingredient recipe, tried it and it worked! Here it is;

  • 1 Medium Banana
  • 2 Whole Eggs

Blend the ingredients and then fry using a small amount of butter or oil. It really is that simple! Make them small in order to get a good thickness. They don’t win any awards for beauty but they taste amazing and make for the perfect healthy indulgence!

Today was my first day back in the gym after 3 days off and I loved it! I’m hooked on working out – there’s definitely worse things to be addicted to. I felt refreshed, had loads of energy and I worked my body HARD!

My workout was;

  • 5k Run (350kcals burned)
  • Bicep Curls – 4 sets/12 reps (3kg)
  • Skull Crushers – 3 sets/10 reps (3kg)
  • Deltoid Raises – 3 sets/10 reps (2kg)
  • Tricep Dips – 3 sets/10 reps

I’m using low weights when I work my arms as I’m not aiming to gain size but rather retain definition! I’m quite lucky as I already have naturally muscular arms and shoulders, meaning this does not require heavy lifting or 1000 reps of each excercise!

As I was back in the gym my intake increased:

  • Black Grapes
  • Graze BBQ Smokehouse Crunch Pack
  • Chicken and Couscous
  • Chicken w/ Fajita seasoning, Peppers and Onions
  • 2 Banana Pancakes

And it’s off to bed before I do it all again!
