The weekend came so fast….. I LOVE SHORT WEEKS!
Good morning fellow bloggies. Aren’t you glad it is FRIDAY! I sure am. School wouldn’t feel so bad if we only had to go three days every week. Well anyways on to the eats. Since it was Friday, me and Whit prepared a real treat for breakfast. Upside down pineapple pancake inspired by Iowa Girl Eats blog 😛 Also we enjoyed some steamed milk with cinnamon. It was just the thing I needed to warm me up on this chillllyyy morning. lol.
YUMMY yum yum yum….
I love the galzed topping!

Today was Day 5 of Insantity. Todays video was Pure Cardio. It was by far the hardest video yet. This time there were no rests or water breaks. Just 40 min. of feeling like you are going to die. I literally thought I was going to puke. I will be so happy when finally the warm up does not wind me.
After our intense workout, we were starving for a snack to repenish all of the energy we burned off!
But that was too boring, so we decided to use one of these babies and..
Make the best parfait I have ever had. Heated up pears + a sprinkle of kashi go lean + and a few chocolate animal crackers= HEAVAN IN A BOWL
For din din tonight, Whit and I wanted something fast and fulfilling. So we microwaved and egg+2egg whites, cooked some veggies in the oven, and prepared some tofu cubes in a skillet. On the side of our eggs we also had a honey wheat sandwich thin. One has honey almond cream cheese, and the other has almond butter/gingerbread butter swired. So easy, so filling, and divine. It is the best lazy girl Friday dinner.
A masterpiece! Sweet paired with savory, just the way I like it 🙂
Mmmm… a must try.
