Protein Pancakes

Who can relate?! I realized I have GOT to get this winter fluff off!!! Too many indulgences and my body is like WHOA GIRL HOLD UP!! Haha.

But, anyway I seriously LOVE following the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan because I CAN  have pancakes!!!! Healthy ones of course, but they still taste AMAZEE!!! As weird as it sounds, I LOVE following these containers because I don’t have to obsess about calories and it helps me keep my portions in control. And I am SO FULL!

So anyway, to the pancake recipe you all came here for is as follows, it’s super easy!!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats (blended in to oat flour)
  • 1 scoop vanilla Shakeology (or protein powder or choice)
  • 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

  • All you do is dump the oat flour (just dump the rolled oats in your blender first to make in to flour) in to a bowl and mix in the other ingredients
  • Heat up a pan to medium-high eat
  • I use coconut oil spray to spray my pan, Trader Joes has the best kind!
  • Then measure out about 1 tbsp for each pancake
  • Cook on each side for about a minute and a half and boom done!
  • I topped mine with a few teaspoons of Chocolate PB2 mixed with almond milk (powdered PB, only 45 calories in 2 tbsp and less fat, you can buy at most all grocery stores)

21 Day Fix Progress & Meals

21 day fix progress 21 Day Fix Progress & Meals

So it’s been a week and a half since I started 21 Day Fix and I am in LOVE just as much, if not MORE, than the first time I did it last year!!! I decided to make it a hybrid and do Turbo Fire with it because I know just how quickly HIITs burn fat. You may not think I need to lose weight, but I have about 10 lbs I would like to lose to get back to my ideal weight.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that when I first moved to Charlotte last year I struggled with binge eating. I ate my emotions and got in to a depression being in a new city. I got a lot better towards the end of 2014, but had a few smaller episodes recently due to emotions. But, luckily I have been on track! I joined a group with my church with other ladies who struggle with eating disorders. And I have also found that if I have something to replace my craving for food (like coffee, hot tea, or gum) and keep myself busy (by praying, walking, calling a friend) then I can overcome the cravings.

So hopefully some of those tips help you, too! But, I wanted to also give you peak in to what I am eating on the meal plan so that you can get some ideas. I usually have a few go to breakfasts and dinners that I rotate. Lunch is usually always Shakeology because it is so quick and easy!

Here are some pictures of the things I am eating, followed by a list of ideas!

Strive for Progress Not Perfection

progressnotperfection Strive for Progress Not Perfection

{Confession time!!} All right y’all time to be real!! Since I moved last month, I’ve had trouble staying motivated to workout, even though I LOVE PiYo, I would just wake up & not feel like doing anything. I also had not been eating enough & not eating the right foods.

I had been feeling so off & wondering why! Feeling bad about myself. Then was like “oh snap, Jess you haven’t been taking great care of yourself.” And that’s why I wasn’t motivated to workout!

So since I don’t enjoy calorie counting, I decided to take out my 21 Day Fix containers & start measuring my portions & getting the right foods in.

Well that’s only been 4 days I have more energy, my clothes are feeling looser, & my abs are already coming back out! Abs aren’t the most important thing for me, but I measure myself based on NON scale victories. I actually have no clue how much I weigh, I threw out my scale (so freeing!).

I also feel motivated again to workout, so motivated I decided to throw in P90X3 in with my PiYo because I had such amazing results leaning out with it earlier this year.

So I say all that to say, thank you Jesus for these amazing programs! And that we all get off sometimes and that’s okay. Don’t beat yourself up. Figure out what you can tweak to fix it and move on. Progress not perfection peeps!
