game changer

i’ve been craving pancakes

it’s a comfort thing

something you can make on the weekend

butter
maple syrup

do i really need to say more?

i spent alot of time researching on line
for the best low carb maple syrup
and found several

i finally decided on a local company
filled out the information
and the order wouldn’t go through

after several attempts – and it being 1am
i gave up

went to my local grocery store the other day
a place i checked at least a dozen times for low carb maple syrup – and they never carried any

but there it was!!!

gluten/calorie/carb free syrup!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(and yes it actually tastes delicious!)

if i didn’t think i’d hurt myself
i would have done a cart wheel right there!!!

so now – i just needed a good low carb pancake recipe

and dear lord – i found one!

i couldn’t wait for pancake Tuesday
so i made them yesterday

the recipe makes for a small serving
(4 small pancakes)

so not only did i have pancakes for breakfast
but i had them for dinner too!!!

pancakes

i know the picture doesn’t do them justice
since i butchered one of them

but these made my belly very happy!!!

would it be wrong to eat pancakes every day?

hot mess

i am very accident prone

by “very” i mean insanely. embarassingly accident prone

you know – getting a badly sprained ankle that took over a year to heal (and hasn’t ever been the same)
from just standing

yes – just standing
my ankle turned over and BAM – there i was in my back yard – crawling my body towards the house
hoping none of my neighbours saw me

falling down my stairs for no apparent reason
often
(i think my next house is going to be a bungalo)

and then there was this one time – on my front porch
tripping over my own feet
that resulted in me doing some sort of acrobatic dance moves to keep myself from actually falling

i ended up doing something to my back
where i could barely move – shower – bend over etc

oh and this was right when i had to travel to the states

i was highly medicated for weeks

Prior to that i had injured my back due to improper form while working out – so it’s always been “off”

last week while i was walking UP the stairs at the office
i tripped
but not over a step – noooo. over my own two feet

so of course i tried not to fall – and ended up in some fast forward – full on run
and slammed face first into the wall that was at least 5 feet away
(thank god for the wall lol)

but of course i couldn’t be alone for that moment
a coworker witnessed every fabulous second
and broke down laughing
(i don’t blame him)

an hour later – everything ached
my wrist, my knee, both ankles
i was a hot mess

lathered myself in voltarin when i got home
and of course – couldn’t work out for a few days

by yesterday i was feeling much better
and was going to start a new program today
i was excited to get moving and back on track

till around 3:00 this morning
when i fell out of bed
THUMP
right on the floor

FELL OUT OF BED!!!!!!

i am not so sure that i fell
or was nudged by my little dog

true story

I wish i could say this surprises me
but to be honest
what surprises me is how this hasn’t happened sooner!

so i am tired
grumpy
and sore

voltarin it is
and hopefully i will be able to get back at it in a few days

i’m a hot mess!!

as for my little loving pup?
she’s in bed
sleeping like the angel that she is lol

reality

i’ve been on track for 4 weeks

four weeks clean eating, and 4 weeks of workouts

can’t tell you if i’ve lost anything as i don’t use a scale
and i never took pictures or measured inches

this is not why i am doing this

well i mean ya – losing weight would be awesome
but it’s lower on the goal list

i feel better

i love when my fit bit goes crazy after i’ve hit a daily goal

i love sweating my stress away
and my clothes feel looser

so i bit the bullet
and got rid of my “small clothes”

for years i have held on to them – thinking that i will get back into them

the reality of it all is…
my body has changed – and i feel like it’s an unrealistic goal

so i got rid of all my size zero pants and xtra small tops
(i can’t believe how tiny i was!!!!)

if by chance i do end up all tiny like that again
at least i have an excuse to go shopping!
