Breakfast for Dinner in 2012

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a great Sunday! It was a gorgeous day in New Jersey and it was so nice to see so many people biking, running, and walking. I wasn’t planning on working out today, but since I wasn’t feeling stellar after last nights festivities, I decided it was time to sweat it out. After brunch at Mom’s, I came home, laced up the shoes, and hit the pavement with Kala. I decided to not bring a watch or music…good decision. It was so nice out! The first few steps were a little rough, but once Kala and I got in the groove, it was smooth sailing. 40 minutes later, we were back in the apartment and I decided, why not go for a full hour…20 minute at-home circuit.


I felt SO MUCH better after that sweat session! A couple of errands later, it was time for some football, household chores, and planning out the week. Tomorrow I have to train a client in the morning; then I’m hoping to get in a outdoor run, if it’s not too chilly; a evening yoga class; Costco (because my fridge is empty); and Sports Authority for some more equipment.

Let’s talk about these pancakes that I whipped up. I love having breakfast for dinner. Since brunch was eggs, toast, and bacon, I was craving something sweet for dinner. Enter these bad boys…Try them out and let me know what you think.

Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

  • 1 scoop double chocolate whey protein
  • 1 whole egg + 1 egg white
  • 1/2 c pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk + 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 diced apple
  • 1 “heaping” tablespoon unsalted peanut butter
  • Dash of cinnamon

20 Minute At-Home Circuit

Perform 2 sets of each circuit. Rest for 1 minute after each circuit.

  • 50 Squats
  • 50 Reverse Lunges (alternating)
  • 20 Wide Push-Ups
  • 1 Minute Plank
  • 15 Step-Ups (15 on each leg. I used my coffee table, but you can use a chair as well)
  • 20 Triceps Dips
  • 5 Narrow Push-Ups
  • Side Plank with 10 leg raises
  • 5 Narrow Push-Ups

What is your favorite “at-home” exercise? Are you a fan of breakfast for dinner?

    I would love breakfast for dinner but the fiance would hate it so that’s a no-go for me!

      I’ll have to check that out! Lately “at-home” workouts have just been a great and easier way to finish up a workout after a outdoor run. And you can always wear and listen to whatever you want. 😉 Hope you had a great Monday!
