I read Peanut Butter Fingers blog yesterday and Julie say’s that she goes to the gym early in the morning.
This has inspired me to do the same, I am not going to get up as early as her (5am – isn’t that still the day before?!) but I will get up at 7am to be at the gym by 7:15/7:30am so that I can do my workout before my day has started and then feel virtuous that I don’t have to find an excuse not to go later in the day.
So with that in mind, I set my alarm last night for 7:00am I didn’t tell Rob my new plan, as he had suggested this to me before, but I had dismissed the idea (silly me). It was a bit hard not to reset the alarm, but powered through!
The verdict! I really enjoyed getting the exercise over and done with by 8:30am, then I could get home and get ready for my lovely clients without having to try to find a space in between to go to the gym or walk Rocco – as it’s normally a toss up between the both of them if I have a busy day. (Rocco always wins as he is such a good boy).

Clean and Lean Oat Pancakes
After the workout I was starving, so I decided to try a new recipe from Clean and Lean Diet Cook Book
For 1 Serving
100g Cottage Cheese
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Once blended pour spoonfuls onto a heated pan and cook 2-3 minutes per side and serve with your favourite berries.
Don’t let the cottage cheese put you off, I couldn’t taste it. They were absolutely delish and I had 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup on my pancakes and blueberries
