More Pancakes, More Working Out, and More Salad

As promised, I had pumpkin pancakes again this morning. What can I say? They’re delicious. However, this morning I decided to change them up a bit and add peanut butter.

What’s better than pumpkin, peanut butter, and chocolate? Nothing.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t really taste the peanut butter all that much. I probably added too small of an amount, but I didn’t want the calorie count too high. So, I decided that next time, I’ll add the peanut butter to the top of the pancakes rather than mix in into the batter.

They were still delicious though.

Today’s Workout

  • 1.5 miles treadmill
  • BodyPump – 30 minutes

I had to leave BodyPump early this morning because I had a dentist appointment at 10 am. No cavities, thank you very much. And I got a new purple toothbrush. I lead an exciting life, I know.

After the dentist, I ran a few errands. I went to the store and got a birthday card for my grandparent’s 75th birthdays! Their party is tomorrow, so we will be in Wisconsin all day.

Then, I stopped at the doctor to pick up a prescription and to make flu shot appointments for the kids. Somehow I got suckered into making flu shot appointments for Danny and me too. Gah. I hate shots. Especially shots that make you feel like you’ve been punched in the arm. But I figured since the kids have to get them, I should set a good example and get one too. That’s dumb. I’m the mom. I should be able to do what I want.

After the doctor, I went to Mariano’s and made a salad for lunch. I have been on such a salad kick lately. That probably explains why I went to Saladworks two days in a row. But I wanted Danny to try it out because I liked it so much. He got a southwest type salad and he wasn’t all that impressed with it. Jeesh. I guess that’s not too surprising since he didn’t even know what a vegetable was before he met me.

Whatever. I still like Saladworks.

I topped my Mariano’s salad with veggies, crab, a few noodles, and some fruit.

I got some chocolate covered cranberries for dessert.

For the record, cranberries are better than raisins.

While, I was at Mariano’s, I decided to be a good mom and get Jacob his favorite meal for dinner – lasagna and sourdough bread.

Maybe you’re wondering why I didn’t get Jaden his favorite meal? It’s because Jaden hates all foods except chocolate chip pancakes.

The kids probably won’t eat the mashed potatoes or the potato pancake that came with the lasagna, but it was $6 for the lasagna itself or $6 for the lasagna with two sides. Hmmm…wonder what I should do?

And now I’ll probably be forced to eat that delicious yummy looking potato pancake because no one else will. The sacrifices us moms make.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday!

Questions of the day:

  • Do you get a flu shot?
  • When was the last time you went to the dentist?
  • Any plans this weekend?
  • Raisins or cranberries…or chocolate?

  1. I have to disagree! Raisins (especially chocolate covered) are way better than cranberries. 🙂

    Going to the Cub’s game tomorrow (cross your fingers for better weather), and watching the Bear’s game with family on Sunday! Yay!

  2. I don’t like raisins at all! But I’m good with dried cranberries. Chocolate is the clear winner of the three!

  3. I’ve gotten a flu shot twice, but after the second time, I googled flu shots, and I haven’t gotten once since. I went to the dentist about 9 months ago. (Shhh, don’t tell!) Chocolate all the way. I love Lindt truffle balls. This weekend I want to journal, practice yoga, and go to Anna Shea’s Chocolate Lounge!!

    Never get flu shots, think I’ve become immune after 25 years in daycare. I think we are seeing FindingNemo in 3D tomorrow. Just keep swimming …..

  5. I get a flu shot every year!! I feel like people who don’t get them are the ones that have never had the flu. I had it once and it was So.Not.Fun!!

    I don’t like raisins unless they are chocolate covered and then I will eat the heck out of them!!

  6. try the margahetta pizza fav from anywhere

  7. Have a wonderful time in Wisconsin girl (GO PACKERS)!! I can’t believe Danny wasn’t a fan of his salad.. so sad!! Joshua isn’t a fan of salad unless it’s drenched in ranch dressing, ha!
