Does anyone remember that jingle for pizza bagles that aired about 10 years ago? I still get it stuck in my head from time to time…pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at suppertime, when pizza’s on a bagel you can have pizza anytime…

I’ve never been wild about pizza. So I like to replace it with cake. Think I’m kidding? Just wait.

I started this morning with an early speed workout:

2 mile warm up @ 8:25 min/mile

1600m @ 7:30 min/mile

1200m @ 7:20 min/mile

800m @ 7:20 min/mile

1 mile cool down

The wind was INSANE, and it slowed me down considerably. I am really ready for springtime to be over. Afterwards, I decided that I wanted to walk to work, which meant that I only had 30 minutes to stretch, shower, eat breakfast and get out the door. For breakfast, I chose a pancake.

Cake #1: Oatmeal + Protein


¼ cup oats, ¼ cup ww flour, 1 scoop protein powder, stevia, cinnamon

It was large and in charge. Because I was in such a rush, I actually held the pancake and my coffee in my hands while I walked sprinted to work. It was quite the sight. I ate the pancake while at my desk, smothered in crunchy peanut butter.

I took a cake hiatus at lunch and had leftover taco salad.

Lettuce, black beans, salsa, chicken, crumbled tortilla chips

After work, I hoofed it home and made some spinach/blackberry protein ice cream. Ice cream goes well with cake.

½ cup frozen spinach, ¾ cup frozen blackberries, 1 scoop protein powder, splash of water – into the food processor for a few minutes and topped with chopped almonds

I went to the grocery store after this snack, and then came home for…

Cake #2, 3, 4, and 5: Red Velvet Pancakes


Mine weren’t as attractive as the Queen of Sweet’s, but they were dang tasty. I topped mine with greek yogurt and a few chocolate chips.

In the 3rd grade world…

Remember when it was fun to sharpen your pencils down to little nubs?


It drives me crazy when my kids do this because we are ALWAYS running out of pencils; which makes the classroom come to a halt. This is proof that they are all just being eaten by the pencil sharpener.
