What’s going on?

You may or may not have noticed that I didn’t post Hammer and Chisel results. Well, I finished the workout part. The food? Not so much!

My second workout buddy was along for most of the ride!

As with my first, I’m nauseous and food averse…existing mostly on carbs. So my results weren’t great. But I loved the workouts and look forward to using it all out after the baby!File Jan 31, 9 02 18 PM

We’re super excited to become a family of four in August!!

(This is also the main reason I haven’t finished the Hammer and Chisel workout series!  I promise it’s all coming!)

Two Ingredient Pancakes

So, it’s Saturday morning.  Hello!!

You may want a special breakfast today.  You may have some extra time to whip something up today.  Maybe you’re really trying to stay on track but want something that feels more decadent this morning.

Here you go 🙂

These pancakes are super simple and quick.  No, they don’t taste just like pancakes, but they’re good and definitely add up to more than the sum of it’s parts!

Two Ingredient Pancakes

  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • 2 eggs

Mix them together.  If you’re feeling wild, add some cinnamon and/or vanilla extract.  Cook on medium high like you would a…pancake!

I topped mine with some almond butter.  Really good!  In the picture, I have the ones I cooked on medium high on top and the less pretty ones are on the bottom.  Those were cooked on a lower setting and didn’t come out as nice.  If you’re doing the 21 Day Fix, these are 1 Red and 1 purple (without the almond butter).  Want to do the 21 Day Fix?  There are 2 more days to get it discounted and get in on my January prize blitz!!  This is the program that I call my gamechanger…it got me on track after 2 years of poor eating between pregnancy and breastfeeding.  30 minute workouts, simple portion control eating and creates your new habits to make healthy choices in your lifestyle!  Plus you can join in my next support group to keep you on track!

Next one is for the moms, but I always have a next one!

Are You a Super Mom-

The Master’s Hammer and Chisel – Total Body Hammer

Another in our Master’s Hammer and Chisel series!  This one has pyramid-style sets of 10, 8 and 6 reps with minimal rest.  This is supposed to increase metabolic burn, even after your workout!

As always, a quick video:

Time: 45 minutes

Equipment: Bench or Stability Ball, Weights, Resistance Band, Chin-Up Bar or Bands with door attachment kit

Moves:

  • Bench Press
  • Squat
  • Reverse Grip Row
  • Incline Fly
  • Reverse Lunge
  • Wide Pull-Up
  • Military Press
  • Split Squat
  • Post Delt Fly

This one sounds intimidating!  But it was fun.  I love the simple moves, done with a little twist with the pyramid sets.  This is a great one to pull out later if you’re doing something cardio heavy and want to cycle in some weights…hits everything, hits it well.
