Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Healthy Pancakes

So, this morning instead of having egg whites again, I decided to make this Healthy Pancakes recipe from the Thin Kitchen's cookbook that I got from Beachbody. I don't know why I've never tried this before, but they were pretty good. After tasting the first one, I decided to add a little cinnamon to them, which I liked better. Just FYI: This recipe makes about ten 5"diameter pancakes. (enough for 3-4 people)

Healthy Pancakes
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. wheat germ
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 c. canola oil
2 c. milk
In bowl, mix eggs with oil and milk. Stir in baking soda, wheat germ and flour; mix until blended. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle. Brown on both sides, turning once.
*Use fresh fruit and a small amount of real maple syrup or honey as a topping.
***I used Sugar Free Maple syrup because I haven't gotten to the store to get any "Real" maple syrup yet. The bad thing about these "pancake syrups" is that they contain corn syrup and other processed sugars that you want to avoid.

Keep up the great work Ms. P90X! :) Did I mention my son and I are officially starting on September 1st (after my failed attempt earlier this summer?) I'm very excited to see his transformation, especially since he doesn't have much fat - the muscles are gonna POP!

LOL - just had a thought - I'd like to take him to a professional photographer for some official before and after photos like Demi's - but I wonder if they'd accuse me of child porn because he's under age? LMAO I mean it would just be shirtless photos ... LOL
