How was everyone’s weekend? Have a good Mother’s Day?
We had a wonderful weekend. Having beautiful weather always helps too 🙂
Saturday we did a #zwow. It has been awhile since we have done one and boy did it kick our butts.
A 12 minute burner. Plus did push-ups and headstands for #whatsbeautiful challenge.
Sunday was yoga with more headstand and push-ups.
How is our Purely Fit Team doing? Are you doing something to reach your goal every day?
Lori highlights Saturday:
Enjoyed perfect fit protein pancakes for breakfast topped with blueberries and banana slices. Later I enjoyed some rice with canned salmon, avocado, carrots, sauteed greens, apple cider vinegar, dulse flakes and coconut oil. Dinner was cod with avocado, spinach, mushrooms and some zucchini with coconut oil.
Had off leash dog training group lesson Saturday morning. Jax did well at the lesson! Later that evening we took Jax to a dog bar in the NODA area here in Charlotte. It was our first time going there and it was fun. Interesting, but fun. Jax had a great time.
Michelle’s Saturday eats:
Enjoyed banana protein pancakes – 3 whole eggs mixed with 1 packet perfect fit and 1 whole banana. Cooked in a little coconut oil. Then topped with another whole banana and 1 tbsp coconut oil and cinnamon!
A great way to start my day 🙂
Looked like salmon was on my mind as both lunch and dinner featured it! Lunch was salmon mixed with cooked spinach and mushrooms with coconut oil and avocado on top of some white rice. Dinner was simply salmon with more mushrooms, spinach, avocado and coconut oil. I also added in more fat by drizzling on some tahini!! I really love the flavor of tahini with my savory meals.
Jax sleeping in his bed as I get breakfast going.
Started my morning with plantain pancakes. Did 3 whole eggs with 1 ripe plantain with some ghee. Delicious. Still obsessed with plantains! Made some homemade coconut milk for a homemade shampoo I am trying out. Lunch was leftover cod, with canned salmon, mushrooms, spinach, coconut oil and avocado. Had a few drinks with friends late afternoon to enjoy the day. Dinner was tuna with avocado and parsnips with coconut oil and sea salt.
Jax had a vizlsa play date. Jax and Braxton played for about 1 1/2 hours. Vizslas can run for hours. I love seeing Jax play with other vizslas. Now if only Jax could play fetch like Braxton did.
The restaurant, Hickory Tavern, we went to yesterday was dog friendly. So Jax was able to sit with us to enjoy the beautiful day! Loved being able to bring Jax with us!
Michelle’s Sunday eats:
Breakfast featured PLANTAIN pancakes again. Topped my pancakes with ghee.
Lunch was carrots, lettuce greens, salmon, avocado, dulse flakes, white rice and coconut oil.
Snacked on tahini and carrots. Getting low on my tahini, yikes! 😉
Dinner was a very boring meal, but just what I needed after enjoying a few bloody mary’s and ciders with friends. Baked mahi mahi with avocado, parsnips fries and coconut oil.
Blended one whole plantain with 3 eggs and 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil.
Cooked up on oiled skillet pan. Topped the plantains with ghee!
Michelle made 6 thin pancakes as Lori got 3 big ones.
Perfect breakfast both mornings. Guess we were craving pancakes!! There is just something about pancakes that can always bring a smile to our faces. In our family Michelle is known as the pancake queen, as that is what she always wanted as a child.
We are still letting our bodies tell us what carb source it prefers…taking one meal at a time. Listening to what our bodies crave. So far it seems as if our bodies are liking a moderate about of carbs mixed with fats and protein. We are going to experiment a little longer before we share more on exactly what we are doing in terms of macros and such. Thanks for your patience. We are trying not to worry about what other people say or think we should or should not be eating. We are staying purely us. And we hope you are listening to your bodies #bepurelyyou
Remember to love yourself. And remember to smile today 🙂 It will help brighten your day as well as someone else.
Twins question: Do you like pancakes? What is your favorite pancake? What did you like eating growing up?
How as your weekend?
