My First GIVEAWAY!!!

I made a banana sweet potato protein pancake and it was SOOOO GOOD. I was greedy and tried to make it work with all the batter. I was able to flip the majority of it properly, but it’s obviously twice as thick as a normal pancake should be:


Haha… even if you think this looks like a disaster, it was actually flippin’ delicious and DENSE. What’s in it?

One baked sweet potato, one large banana, two eggs, and 1 huge scoop of protein powder. This thing has more than 30g of protein. I shouldn’t have eaten the whole thing… but it was just so tasty!

Dangit. Should have worked out and then eaten this giant slapjack of protein.

Also, I love that it doesn’t require any extra sweetener (like syrup). It’s perfect just the way it is 🙂


Our Christmas skit is tonight at 5:00pm at NCUMC. We’ve been practicing a lot and I think it would be fun for you to watch the young adult production of A Christmas Carol. We had so much fun working on this skit and plenty of laughs during rehearsals 😀

There’s going to be a nice Christmas party afterwards, so do join us if you can!


Wow. I haven’t done any kind of run in a long long time (Wednesday?)… but I feel okay about it. I think having a random schedule of doing whatever workout I feel like or resting has been nice. It kind of fits the holiday season, yeah?

I used to feel horrible and guilty with my holiday weight gain (usually I slowly put anywhere from 5 to 10 pounds). Hibernating? Extra insulation? I guess.

Lots of articles about how to avoid holiday weight gain everywheres.

For me, it usually comes off during the beginning of the new year… or any time around spring when the weather gets a bit nicer. I just naturally spend more time outside, moving about during the day, etc. etc.

ANYWAYS, Joe reminded me the other day that I was supposed to have a giveaway!

This is my first giveaway everrrrr.

I don’t know if you remember but I won two hydration packs/hand-held bottles during the Running Addicts Year-end Holiday party:


I’ll be giving away one of those bottles with surprise goodies inside (trust me. You’ll like what’s inside… possibly more than the bottle itself)! I want to be able to send this off so the winner can receive it (hopefully) within the first week of 2013 so you have plenty of motivation to go out for a run and stay hydrated while working out!

All you have to do is comment on this post, telling me what you have planned for New Years’ Eve this year 🙂

Extra comment if you start following or are already following my blog.

If you’re a Facebook friend, you can just comment on the link on my Facebook page.

(Sorry, but you have to live in the U.S. for this giveaway).

Winner will be announced on December 27th, so enter for your chance to win!

  1. Uhhh banana sweet potato protien pancake hey? I will take your word for it that it is tasty!

    Well I am not really in need of any sort of hydration pack, but I wanted to comment anyway!
    New Years eve will be low key, Tina and I have a race New Years Day! Probably just chillin out at home with the family=)

    Giveaways are fun! We did one last month! And! we have one coming up in Jan!!! =) yeahhh!

  2. I never thought to use sweet potato in a pancake recipe before, but I’ve used pumpkin puree so it’s kind of interchangeable. I’ll have to try it out!

    I’ll probably just hang at home with my family for NYE and eat chinese food, it’s kind of tradition.
