most boring friday night ever.

in body for life,meals,recipes

wow when you can’t walk anywhere and none of your roommates are home (you would think one out of four might be a possibility but they are all gone!) and your boyfriend is playing poker with the boys.. you get bored. like way bored. and what did i used to do when i was laid up on the couch? yeah, eat. so i have had to talk myself out of breaking out the honey bunches of oats + crispix more than once.  for the most part, i’ve done pretty well at resisting any mindless snacking.  but i am restless, i can’t work out, i can’t even go on a freaking walk because, well, i can’t walk!

so let’s wrap up the day, shall we?  i ended at meal three i believe..

meal 4: turkey pepperoni & string cheese @ 7:00 PM.


nine turkey pepperonis to be exact, and one cow pal’s string cheese. and a lortab. filling, i promise.

meal 5: protein pancakes & 1 egg @ 9:00 PM

obviously i was left hungry after my wimpy meal 4.. but i am not working out so i am trying to reduce the number of calories i eat since the only ones i burn will be thanks to my BMR.  le sigh.  i am really anti eating starchy carbs at night.. but in order to fight my cereal binging urges i decided to whip up a batch of protein pancakes.. they are basically my favorite body for life meal ever. i haven’t made a recipe link to them yet on my page so i will quickly post the ingredients here:

for one serving

  • 1/3 cup non instant oats
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • shake of splenda
  • double shake of cinnamon

blend in the blender and cook like you would a regular pancake.

i make two or three small ones with this recipe. they also freeze really well and heat up in the toaster like an ego, so when i am feeling like i need to be prepared i will make a big batch of these  bad boys and freeze them.  i topped mine with a skiff of natural PB w/ flax and a squirt of SF syrup.

i thought i would take a shot at cooking an over easy egg, but i failed miserably as i always do (unless i have the big flat griddle out, then it is a cinch) and i ended up scrambling it. like usual.

well that satisfied my sweet tooth and now i think i will try to sleep since i am so incredibly sick of television, the internet, sitting around, thinking about cereal, and being in pain.

plus, this little lady starts her intermediate training classes tomorrow morning! yesss i LOVE dog school.. it is so much fun for me and for penelope jane as well! (PJ is my pooch, awe i <3 her!)


tomorrow is free day on my body for life challenge, but i am afraid to take it since i am not exercising.  i think i will eat clean all day up until i go on my dinner/soccer game date with the boyfriend.  i informed him he will be packing me around like cargo on a camel in the desert since i can’t walk.  he is ok with that, and that is why i love him.

hasta luego!
