Here’s a little wrap up of my Hump Day yesterday!

First of all, I worked from home.  I knew it would be a good day when I found out that both Triners and Slesh were both going to be telecommuting as well.

For breakfast, Trina & I made protein pancakes.  I whipped up a delish new banana recipe, inspired by Peanut Butter Fingers.

Banana Cinnamon Protein Pancakes

Serves 1


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 a banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese (you could also use yogurt if you’re the kind of person that gets grossed out by cottage cheese, even though I promise you can’t taste it!  Trina used Chobani apple cinnamon for her batch and said the apple flavor was so good).
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pumpkin pie spice


  1. Spray pan with cooking spray, heat to medium heat.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mix well.
  3. Pour batter onto the pan to form pancakes, allow to cook until pancakes turn golden brown, about three minutes.
  4. Flip pancakes and allow to cook until batter is no longer runny, about two more minutes.
  5. Top with your favorite toppings!

I topped with banana slices, pumpkin pie spice, and a dab of light syrup.

They tasted extra good with a medium iced hazelnut coffee with skim milk and one splenda from Dunks!

After a morning of work related things, my parents stopped by to say hello since they were in town for an appointment.  It was nice out so my mom and I walked to Brighton Center, and she treated me to a lunch at Cafenation.  My dad had to get back to work, so he couldn’t join us.

I ordered the Californian panini:

Turkey, brie cheese, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, and red onions with homemade avocado sauce — on multigrain, with a side of greens topped with homemade balsamic dressing.  Perfect lunch (I forgot how much I love brie!) and nice to catch up with Georgia.

<Insert more work related and around the apartment related things here>

For dinner (and lunch and probably dinner again today), I whipped up some of this:

A concoction of whole wheat elbows, butternut squash, spinach, raisins, and feta cheese.  I’ll probably post the recipe later today.

Finally, last night’s workout was a fun double sesh over at CBC!  Ashley and Liz both did a fantabulous job subbing for Erin and Andy.

Nice job, ladies!  I sweat so much that I didn’t even feel guilty munching on a couple of Stacy’s Garden Veggie Chips when I got home.

How was your Humpity Hump Day?  Anything fun happen?

Time to tackle today’s to do’s – there’s a lot of them!
