More Butter. . .More Syrup. . . . I LIKE. . .

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Here is my BIGGEST breakfast weakness. . . Thing is, I only want them when I make them. I tend to make them on the weekends but this morning I woke up & my son & husband wanted pancakes, bacon & turkey sausages. Mother had to make sure her babies go out into the world fed. Here's my favorite cartoon about pancakes. . . . .

See you get the pancakes, more butter, more syrup, more butter, more syrup but as you can see, Chilly Willy had to pay a price before he could have those mouth watering pancakes. . . YUMMY!! If were accountable with over indulgence as we have to pay to play (eat) how many times we would over do it fully knowing the consequence? Being overweight leads to hypertension, diabetes heart disease & many other life threatening diseases. With proper nutrition think of how healthy & fit we could all be?

Look at these Red velvet pancakes served with whipped cream cheese and butter pecan syrup, they look amazing! How can proper nutrition fight against this?

You can eat one pancake like I do & a slice of bacon, like I do. But I do need to ease up on the syrup & butter? lol Today, I did walking, tonight its weights, pilates & step aerobics., so see I can eat the cookies (pancakes) & feel less guilt. To some degree we have to either pull back from the table or do more push ups, squats, sits up & cardio with weights. . . . lol

God bless & give yourself 10-15minutes of fitness daily to make it a habit.

    I love my homemade pancakes and I know how to make them healthier by adding oats and milled flax seed and low fat buttermilk gives them a great taste. I also use honey when I have
it or sugar free syrup. I will use real butter because it has health benefits. Thank God I don't make them everyday. LOL I try to make a lot for later and freeze them, but I just don't want them after I freeze them.
My sister and brother ate the same pancakes my mother made and who got all the weight? Yep me...LOL.
Thanks Dee for sharing!!!! emoticon

    Now I'm hungry before I go to bed. These looked delicious. The problem though is that it's hard to have only one. Ah, well. How many minutes on the treadmill to burn off a pancake? :) -- Lou

    Oh my, those pancakes looked so good. I don't cook them but will occasionally have 1 or 2 when I'm out for breakfast on the weekend. No syrup and most of the butter gets pushed off the plate. Never heard of the red velvet pancakes but they look and sound good.

Push back or push up!

    Dee I love Butter and Syrup too! I'm more of a waffle(nutri-grain) eater. I use smart balance and sugar free log cabin syrup. I love turkey sausage links by Jimmy Dean. I cannot tell a difference and trust me if anybody can it's me, but I pray on this stuff One thing with the butter is that instead of putting it in my all my food, I put it directly on it and you don't need as much to taste it. It's all in our eyes is what I had to figure out cause I had a weakness with overloading my potato with tons of butter and was taking the taste away and now it's healthy and I'm losing all this weight. I'm not going to know what to do with myself when I get there.=)

    Well done. My hubby makes the pancakes and waffles, and I prefer the waffles, but not very often. He used to make them every week. Now, it is just once in a while.

    I'm so lucky that I don't like pancakes. It's not that I don't like em, its more that they sit like lead in my tummy. Now, when I make em from scratch, I never get a tummy ache.

A Song for Mama . . .

Sunday, May 09, 2010

This song encompasses the meaning of my beautiful mother, may she rest in peace. Her memory is with me everyday, some times I laugh & then I cry. Not of sadness but of joy of having had such the love of mother. Who wanted to know where I was & what I was doing?Who took me to church & tried to raise me right. She stayed on her knees a many a night praying for all 6 of us & her prayers continue on today.

To all the beautiful mothers & memories of beautiful mothers that have gone on to glory, this ones for you!

God bless & enjoy Mother's Day!

I Tried This . . . . .

Friday, May 07, 2010

So I was watching the commercial for the Sunsweet Prunes. I actually had no desire to buy these but my hubby (who can be a health nut at times) was like, I might like to try those? So guess what? You guessed it, I picked up a canister of these sweet treats. My first thought when I think of prunes is my mother or some type of grandparent fruit. Well, my first try, I didn't like them. I looked at the canister again this morning & decided to pop 2 in my purse for fighting the early morning blahs or afternoon hunger. Well I ate them & I actually like them. They satisfied my sweet tooth & believe you me, its bigger than me! lol So if you want to try something new or thinking about these sweet treats, they are pre-packaged to throw in your purse or pocket. Just a thought. . . .

Today, I got up & did the Dance & Be Fit segment on FitTv & I was actually out of breathe & trying to keep up. It was the Brazilian one & man the gyrations alone leave me feeling dirty & I was sweaty. LOL My whole body turned red at some of those moves but I was in my own house behind clothes doors as to not offend any onlookers. LOL Anyway, I continued on with prayer and then did my hand & body weight workout. I am walking all day at work when I can & also did Target on my lunch break. I want to do step aerobics on FitTv tonight but I won't have the time. UGH!! I'm going with the flow while its flowing. I wanna be cover up free by the summer. . . So the fire burns. . . . .

God bless & Happy Friday!!

Go Hard or . . . .

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Go light but just work it out! Oh did you think I was going to give an excuse not to workout because you aren't going hard? You know that ain't me! lol Since my neck is feeling better I have actually been able to do a few moves but I PROMISE you, they have been carefully calculated. lol

Today, I did walk the dog, did more walking, did 45mins of light weights & abs, did 20mins of glute work & will try to tie it all up with 30mins of kickboxing while watching my guilty pleasure:

I know, I know. . . . I am working on cutting back & trying studying the Word more & reading too. I hope you guys are doing something that's what counts. Small efforts will lead to big efforts.

God bless & take care!

    Hey Dee,

I got myself a nice water bottle that holds 4 cups, I've drank 12 cups of water so, I'm good.

You are too funny with the Mommy shopping, good for you girl. I'm hanging in there on this hump day.....My week has been so busy. This week I've had the central air out, the electrician in and Taylor got her braces off yesterday. So tomorrow is round two with the electrician.

Oh yeah, I got 4.81 miles in today.
