I was out the door a little after 8 a.m. this morning for my run. It was my goal not to procrastinate and get out earlier than normal, so I had more time to do other things. 🙂
Don’t mind the fact my face matches the color of my jacket.
I made sure to wear my YakTraxs on my run this morning. The city can be so slow some times to get out and plow the streets.
I ran 6 miles in 53 minutes. It was a nice, quiet run, but I sure was lacking energy. I’m just glad I wasn’t doing a long run and going twice the distance!
Before my run, I had one of these Vita Top Muffins.
I had seen these on other blogs and had been wanting to try them, but was too cheap to pay full price, but when I saw they were 50% off at the grocery store last night, I decided to give them a try.
These muffins are found in the freezer section, so in order to prepare them, the box suggests toasting them or putting them in the microwave; I chose the toaster.
This is a great pre-run food option, although I think I should have had something else to eat because I was lacking energy on my run.
I have been craving pancakes lately, so I made a point to make some this morning for Craig and I.
Don’t be fooled by how boring they look. This is my go-to recipe for awesome-sauce pancakes! 🙂
Greek Yogurt Pancakes
(Based off this recipe)
Yield: 8 pancakes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 cup soy milk
2 oz. non-fat homemade Greek yogurt (or store-bought Greek yogurt)
1 teaspoon canola oil
1. Combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar together in a bowl.
2. Combine the soymilk, yogurt, egg, and canola oil in a separate bowl.
3. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix just until combined.
4. Drop by spoonfuls onto non-stick grilled and cook until the pancake starts to bubble for about 1 minute. Flip and cook until golden brown on both sides.
I also had a couple of clementines. Love how easy they are to peel!
Craig and I are off to run a few errands, then date night!! Yippee!!
