Perfect Pancakes

Perfect Pancakes

This Saturday morning was a good one so far.  I slept in… a lot!!  I woke feeling refreshed, which doesn’t happen all that much.  David and I decided to do our respective workouts to get them over with.  He went for a run…crazy person…it’s Phoenix in the summer and I decided to do an old Insanity workout from the first month.  It was still really challenging, but MUCH shorter than the ones we do now, which was really refreshing.  David and I have both decided that while Insanity is amazing and did what it claimed, we are both a little tired of it.  The workouts get a little monotonous and both of our legs are honestly just worn out!  Mine tire in the first 5 minutes of the videos now.  Next week is the last week of the program and I’m definitely going to change up my workout a little bit.  My legs and shoulders need a little break from interval training like this.

On to breakfast, I have been toying with the idea to go gluten-free.  I know I really need to.  I know that my body is sensitive to gluten, as I feel most people’s are, but making the leap into full gluten-free is hard. First of all, I know being in the field I’m in (personal training and acupuncture), I should know this, but I don’t know all the names on the ingredients label for gluten.  I feel like I’m doing well with it, just to find out that I did consume gluten but didn’t know it.

A couple days ago, I decided that I was going to make gluten-free pancakes in honor of a Saturday morning!  I just bought the mix at the grocery store and after today’s workout, got to cookin’.

BBQ Happy Hour

So the other day we decided that the car needs new tires.  We ordered them from Costco and they came in on Wednesday night.  We dropped the car off at about 5 pm and needed something other than browsing around Costco spending our life savings to do while it was being worked on.  Out ofContinue Reading

Things To Do In The Phoenix Heat

Many people think that there isn’t much to do in Phoenix in the summer because it’s so blistering hot.  Through being in here in the summer and not wanting to reverse hibernate, I’ve compiled a list of things to do: 1. Go Tubing on the Salt River – This is such a great thing toContinue Reading
