How is it already Sunday night?! This weekend really flew by, but I enjoyed every minute. I didn't get out much, but sometimes you just need a couple days to be a complete homebody!
And staying in has it's advantages. Like my apartment is sparkling clean. I'm tan, yay self tanner! I finished a book. And I'm all caught up on my shows.
Saturday started off with an 8.5 mile run, which to be honest, I didn't think was gonna happen. All morning I moped around, dreading the impending miles. I was a complete slacker this week and only got in one 4-miler. It also doesn't help that since the mud run, I find dirt in between my toes after wearing my sneakers.
But that's no problem, because being a homebody also allows you to online shop. So my new kicks arrive in 4-5 days, I can't wait to try them on!
After my run I tried coconut water for the first time. I wasn't that thrilled by it, maybe because I was expecting something sweeter, perhaps more fruity. Next time I'll have to try a flavored kind, since the nutrition stats rock and I want to like it!
Part of what got me through my run was the thought of pancakes. Isn't that why everyone runs? I had 8.5 miles to think of a way to incorporate sweet potatoes into pancakes. I came up with 3!
Each pancake mix started with the same base: whole wheat flour, baking powder, flax meal, and vanilla.
#1 sweet potato, molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
#2 sweet potato, cinnamon, brown sugar
#3 sweet potato, cinnamon, maple syrup
Looking good so far...
These could work...
Nope. I didn't get the ratios correct, so no matter how long the pancakes were on the pan, the insides would not cook! I will get these ratios correct because these have the potential to be sooo good! I have some ideas for other add-ins as well.
The rest of the day I chilled out ...a m a z i n g.
After din, leftover Pho, Shane and I had a little banana soft serve topped with chocolate chips
[process frozen banana in processor until smooth]
and watched some Demetri Martin.
Sunday I revisited my sweet potato pancakes after yoga. And they were super yum after a night in the fridge. Topped with PB, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut shreds, and maple syrup.
Good night bloggies! Sleep tight!
