"We may stumble, we may fall, but we move!" Said by Tony, the P90X instructor/creator. This morning I did the P90X Plyometrics DVD and Tony I inspired me with this quote. I literally could not stop thinking about it all day. Not only is it such a great motto for working out, but for life to. No matter what as long as you are trying that is all that matters.

A side note about the actual workout...I was a little nervous because I thought it was going to be laden with mountain climbers and lunges. It was not however it was chalk full of squats. Which for some crazy reason are my favorite plyometric move! My shirt was drenched by the end of the one hour video and I felt very accomplished and proud of myself. I'll definitely be using that video again.

I knew I was going to need some protein after that workout so I referenced my favorite blog, Peanut Butter Fingers, for a Peanut Butter Pancake recipe. It was so good! This is what I did.

-3/4 flour
-3 tablespoons brown sugar
-1 teapspoon baking soda
-2 tablespoons of peanut butter, put in microwave first
- 3/4 cup milk
-1 egg

Mix everything together to get something like this...
Then put it on the griddle!
Flip!
Top with some powdered sugar and syrup!
I'll be the first to admit I am not a huge pancake fan. I prefer waffles most days. When I saw peanut butter pancakes though I just had to try! The peanut butter was not over powering and the pancakes were light. They were not very thick but I was okay with that. For some reason one pancake was more peanut buttery than the other, which was a nice surprise! All-in-all I will be adding it my recipe collection!

After a surprisingly steady Saturday night at work I whipped up some poaches eggs to put on top of a whole grain English muffin with spinach and tomato. Look at this the perfect bite!
I did something a little different and sprinkled some garlic salt on top of the eggs. I originally only had it on one in case I didn't really like it, but ended up adding it on top of the other one too. You don't need to add much, just a little sprinkle works really well.

I ended the night FINALLY seeing my best friend! She arrived home from France on Wednesday and I've been so busy with work and everything that we just couldn't see each other. It was great to be able to just hang out again! Tomorrow is another long day ahead of work, working out and doing stats. The Bachelorette finale is tomorrow too! My money is on Jeff. Who do you think will win?!
