Have you entered my LÄRABAR giveaway yet? Today is the last day to enter so don’t miss out!

Yesterday was strange. Do you ever just have those days where you wake up in a funk and can’t quite seem to shake it? I wasn’t in a bad mood yesterday, just kind of out of it. Unfortunately my mood killed my workout, but I plan on making up for it with my other workouts this week. Less energy one day = more energy the next, right? 🙂 These will get me started nicely..

On Sunday I made some big plans and I can’t believe I forgot to mention them yesterday. I made reservations for our first anniversary getaway!

Nathan and I had been talking about a wine country getaway and when a deal popped up on Travelzoo for the same place we stayed back in 2012, we jumped. This place is an “Inn” as opposed to a hotel so it had a much more cozy feeling. Their food was fabulous—breakfast, happy hour, and dinner—and it also doesn’t hurt that they give you a bottle of wine in the room, winery tours, tastings, & pairings included, and a discount on dinner at their restaurant. Wine country won’t know what hit ’em! Only 8 weeks to go..

Have you entered my Peanut Butter & Co. giveaway yet?

Wow, I don’t even know where yesterday went! I’m so glad we finally got a break from the constant rain. I was able to take a walk to Berkeley Bowl in the middle of the day and it was much warmer than I expected. Good and bad when you layer up like I do.. definitely blasted the fan when I got home haha. I also came home to a wonderful package thanks to Kaila and NuNaturals. Can’t wait to try these out!

Five Things Friday

Whoa, late post here but I just wanted to drop in, say hi, and give you all a quick update 🙂

  1. Yesterday I made yet another variation on the pancakes! Say hello to Apple Pie. It was a good call.
    Apple Pie Coconut Almond Flour Pancakes

    Apple Pie Pancakes

    Ingredients
    – 3 tbsp coconut flour
    – 2 tbsp almond flour
    – 1/4 tsp baking powder
    – 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    – 1 tsp cinnamon or apple pie spice
    – 16 drops of liquid stevia
    – Pinch of salt
    – 7 egg whites
    – 1/4 – 1/2 cup water

    For my layers/topping, I mixed 1 tbsp peanut flour with 2 tbsp applesauce, 4 drops stevia, and water. I also used 1/2 shredded apple in between and on top. And the ultimate was topping it with the best apple quinoa granola from Michele’s.

  2. This morning, my company had a little retreat and provided brunch. I wasn’t sure what to expect so, as always, I came prepared with some bars in my bag but I was more than pleasantly surprised to see the catering food truck from The Food Market. Nathan and I had been there once for dinner but I’ve been wanting to go for brunch since I saw their killer menu. It did not disappoint!

    I had to try a little bit of everything!

  3. Yesterday Alysia shared a metabolism experiment that she tested. This is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now but reading her thoughts on this convinced me! Tomorrow is the big day and I’ll be sure to report back.
  4. Speaking of which, that means tomorrow is my rest day and to say I’m pysched would be an understatement! My workouts definitely got the best of me this week and I’m looking forward to resting up and feeling refreshed for next week!

    I can’t move my arms today.. thanks Tina 😉

  5. I can’t believe it’s already October 25th! Where has the time gone?! Halloween is next week and I’m wrapping up my costume for work. It isn’t anything crazy but it’s a fun day at work every year!

Food for Thought

Have you ever tried a metabolism experiment like this?

Do you ever have weeks that your workouts seem extra tough?

Do you have a Halloween costume picked out yet?
