B-A-N-A-N-A-S + Pancakes = <3

Can’t you see that it’s just SNOWIN’
There ain’t no need to go outside.

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you
This song It’s meant to keep you
From doin’ what you’re supposed to
Like wakin’ up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
I’ll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now
~Jack Johnson

Ahh… Such a lovely way to start my Sunday. I have to say that these banana walnut pancakes were unbelievably delicious!

Just take your normal pancake recipe add a half cup of mashed up bananas and a handful of crunched up walnuts and you have scrumptious pancakes. I added more bananas on top for extra banana-ness.

After my breakfast I got right on to shredding it up. I have now graduated to level 2!

The 30 Day Shred level 2 definitely steps it up. The cardio seems to be more intense and harder. I looked like I just stepped out of my kickboxing class after my 20 minute Shred session (I was that sweaty!).

The Shred in itself is a 20 minute work out. It consists of 3 levels. 1 being the easiest and 3 being the hardest. Each 20 minute work out consists of 3 sets of 3 minutes of strength workouts, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs.

The thing I like the most about it is that it goes by fast and I actually feel like I am working myself. You have the ability to make it harder or easier by how you push yourself.

I have to admit some days I just don’t want to do it but once I get started and Jillian is staring directly at me I know I better do what she says. Oh Jillian! Her and I are becoming besties these days!

If you haven’t shredded yet but have questions please feel free to ask. I am loving it so far and am really starting to feel results. My abs feel tighter and I feel stronger.

And my favorite… J. Alabama (the boyfriend) grabbed my arm yesterday and said “Babe, your muscles feel bigger/stronger” – or something like that. He definitely noticed a difference by feeling my huge muscles! ha ha! That gave me a huge boost and made me feel that I am on track!
