Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA this week! I've been crazy busy with work, school and the playoffs!! I worked on Monday and Tuesday, both 12 hour shifts. After Monday's shift I was way too exhausted to do anything after work so I basically just went home and went to bed. On Tuesday after work I went over to Mats and watched Sherlock Holmes. It was a pretty good movie! Better than I expected. Wednesday was spent doing homework and counting down the minutes until Philadelphias first playoff game! I watched the game at Mat's where I am happy to say that Philly won 2-1! It was a road game too so I am pretty pumped. Mat's team, Detroit, lost their first one last night to the Coyotes. I felt kinda bad for him. I know if Philly would've lost I probably would've been crying haha! I didn't take any pics of my eats cause they were kinda boring. I got groceries today so I'll share today's eats with you.

First off for breakfast (around 11) I had a nectarine and a banana pancake!
Nectarine and banana pancake topped with 1/2 banana, agave nectar and maple flakes

That pancake was sooo good! I was meaning to make 3 but then they kinda all went together in the pan so I just made one really big one. If you feel like going to heaven one morning here's the recipe:

Awesome banana pancake recipe:
1/4 whole wheat flour
1 egg white
1/2 smashed banana
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp soy milk
1/2 scoop protein powder (I used chocolate flavour)

Mix all wet ingredients and dry ingredients seperately. Add the two together. Make 3 smaller pancakes or one gigantic one.

After breakfast I did a load of laundry and worked on some more homework. I also cleaned up the apartment a bit and worked up enough appettite for this snack:

Cucumbers, carrots, peas, tomatoes, cauliflower, green peppers and olives with 1 Tbsp calorie-wish peppercorn ranch dip

That snack plate was awesome! And Mat made me obsessed with olives again. His are better though because they're humungous ones! The ones I have are just tiny. Anyways, after that snack plate I got to some more homework. Wow! My life is just really exciting with all this homework haha!! I also had 5 fuzzy peach rings that I picked up at Walmart a couple days ago. At 5:00 I had an online chat with my teacher and some classmates. We all meet on Skype and go around answering questions. This one was about are concerns towards instrumentation and counts. The chats are good but they usually take about an hour or so which is waaayyy too long! At least we don't have to use the video thing so I can look like a slob without anyone knowing haha! After the chat I made supper and I was very hangry!!

Grilled chicken breast, steamed brussel sprouts and baby carrots, roasted sweet potato rounds and some BBQ sauce and ketchup for dipping.

Mmmmm that was delish!! I grilled the chicken on my George Foreman grill. I made 6 so I could have some for my lunches this weekend and froze a few more for down the road. I grilled the chicken with some chicken seasoning and BBQ sauce. After making supper I also made some spaghetti squash for my lunches this weekend. It made 3 servings which is perfect for my shifts Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I better get going though because Montreal and Washington is going into overtime and I can't miss it haha!! I think tonights snack might be an apple and a sugar free chocolate Jell-O!!! Have a great night all!! And cheer for Philly tomorrow night in game 2!!!
