I ran out of the almond flour pumpkin pecan pancakes that I made last week – I freeze them and warm them up in the microwave. Since, I had a little bit of almond flour left, I decided to try out the almond flour pancakes recipe from Matt at Runner Savvy.
Just as he said – they were really good pancakes! I only had about a cup of almond flour left, so I had to adjust the measurements accordingly. I topped mine with a little bit of peanut butter for the perfect breakfast.
I drank my coffee out of my cute gingerbread coffee mug. It’s never to early to drink out of a holiday mug
After breakfast, I headed to the gym.
My niece and I from yesterday (I was trying the capris on!). She is currently on a plane to Florida!
- Stretching, hip bridges, and band walking squats – 20 minutes
- Walked on treadmill – 10 minutes
- Tabata Xpress Class – 30 minutes
I took a new class at the gym this morning – Tabata Xpress. If you have never heard of tabata before, it’s a fast but effective and efficient workout. Some Tabata workouts can be as short as four minute long because you’re doing such high intensity exercises. It gets your heart pumping!
Tabata is basically like interval training – you are working hard for a set amount of time followed by a short recovery. The Tabata class I took today consisted of doing a high intensity exercise for 30-60 seconds followed by a short rest time.
By the time 30 minutes are up, you’re ready to be done! In today’s 30 minute class, I burned 300 calories.
I’m going to try and get in a little bit of BodyPump practice this afternoon!
Have a good afternoon!
