Let me tell you, it was SO nice to just RELAX this weekend! After the past few weeks I really needed a weekend like this.
Saturday morning started off with: Waffles!
I’m not usually a “mix” person, but I had bought this to take to the Outerbanks back in August and never used it. Finally remembered to dig it out of the pantry:
It’s a multi-purpose mix, and so I thought it was a great opportunity to break out the waffle iron collecting dust in the cabinet.
Those little craters are perfect vessels for chocolate chips and real maple syrup!
I even gave the syrup its own little pitcher
Ok, so it’s technically a creamer, but it made breakfast feel fancy :)
I was all out of coffee filters for the regular pot, and all out of espresso beans…which leaves this guy!
Thank god for options! I need my coffee!
Mid morning snack:
The rest of Saturday consisted of an intense house cleaning session, lunch, shopping, and an impromptu dinner out! Super Saturday.
Whenever I make a batch of pancakes or waffles I love cooking up a full batch (even for 2 people) and freezing the extra! It’s like having gourmet Eggo’s in your freezer!
Sunday Morning: Waffle Remix!
- 1/2 waffle toaster
- 1/4 topped with almond butter
- 1/2 topped with choc. chips
- Side bowl of 0% plain Greek yogurt
- Sliced strawberries
- top everything with maple syrup
Festive mug + saucer
After digesting I finally got in a great workout!!
20-25 min on the treadmill and it felt great to run!
Then Body Pump! Man I was feeling the past 3 weeks! I was wearing my HRM and noticed, during the squat track, that my heart rate was up where it was when I was running! Damn!
I love how weekend workouts are so much more relaxed. It’s not after work where all I really want is to get home, or I’m rushing from work to make it to a class on time…plus its nice and sunny :)
Thankfully I had that great workout because Super Bowl Sunday = FOOD! I had an awesome time at my friend’s apt in Brighton where 2 of my friends battled it out in the Buffalo Chicken Dip competition…I gladly participated in the judging ;)
There were also these:
But they need their own post.
Lastly, randomly, there’s dinner tonight. I made Turkey Meatloaf!
I used this recipe as my base, but with no mushrooms (I just increased my carrots, lentils, and added celery).
Can’t wait for leftovers!
