Battle of the Heartthrob QBs


Last week sometime Richard was asking my football picks, and I was going for the Jets. Mainly because I wanted a Brady vs. Sanchez matchup. Girl got her wish and is enjoying at this very second :) Hubba hubba!

Today started out totally different than yesterday. Brielle was up at 7 so it gave me no time to workout before hand. Fighting the guilt, I told myself to just run a mile and then lift weights with her in the same room.  I’m glad we have a treadmill, cause I was able to get that mile in plus a 9:20ish mile in as well. I’m trying to work on my speed and I would love to be able to run at a 9:30 comfy pace. Right now my comfy pace is 10-minute miles, so please let me know if you have any tips on getting that down.

I felt so much better afterwards and enjoyed making little faces at my bebe while I did the FitSugar full-body workout.

I haven’t gone grocery shopping and don’t have any plans to go until Monday or Tuesday, so I didn’t know what to make for breakfast since I only have two eggs left. Enter the Banana Scramble of my dreams!

I changed up the recipe just a bit, but it was so much fun and I already have so many different ideas for this type of breakfast. Can you tell the doggies were intrigued?

  • 2/3 rolled oats
  • 2 small bananas
  • dash of vanilla
  • dash of half-n-half
  • dash of shredded coconut
  • peanut butter (optional)
  • bacon (optional but recommended)

I mashed the banana and added in the rolled oats, banana, vanilla and half-n-half. Then I mixed it and added it to a hot pan with some melted butter. I pressed it down and let it cook on both sides about 3 minutes each side.

I then toasted some whole-wheat bread and made two types of sammies. One I just topped the banana scramble with bacon. The other I spread peanut butter, then the scramble then some chocolate chips.

The results:

Apparently, the doggies thought so too!

I already have so many variations to play with here!

It fueled me through our walk with the doggies and church afterwards. I always tend to stay with the same breakfasts because I know I won’t be hungry an hour later. This one, will definitely make the regular rotation – believe me :)

After we got home, we were going to put the Christmas stuff away, which called for a quick lunch.

A papaya appearance made it in as well. The coconut extract really added some tropical punch to the smoothie.

Too bad it couldn’t do anything about that mom-hair!

Oh well!

Many Blessings!
