Food, recipe and starting weight.

I am ROCKING my food. I mean SOLID!!! WOOT!! At least I got that part down, now I just need to rock the exercise about 4-5 days a week.

Although the challenge officially starts on Monday, July 27th we could report our "start weight" yesterday so I reported in at 153.2. I still need to do measurements and pictures with in the next couple of days.

Here is what I ate yesterday:
B- protein shake, oatmeal w/ 1 tbsp of flaxseed mill - 1 tbsp of wheat germ and 1/2 cup of blueberries

S - protein shake

L - hamburger patty w/ mustard, tomato and steamed brocc/cheese cup and 2 tbsp of pecans

S - protein shake and and apple

D - protein pancakes and 1/4 cup of sf syrup. I LOVE THESE THINGS.

Here is the recipe for protein pancakes, I just love these things. They taste so good with some sugar free syrup and sometimes I even add a few squirts of whip cream to the top. YUMMO!

mix all of this together and put in a blender or magic bullet is what I have and those things are AWESOME.

1/2 cup of oatmeal ( I use regular whole instant oatmeal, you could use quick oats too)

1 scoop of protein powder ( I use BSN Syntha 6 lean dessert whipped vanilla, they also have banana nut and cinnamon roll flavor, this stuff is GOOD and rather low in carbs and sugar considering how good it is. I order it on-line from bodybuilding.com that is the cheapest place I have found any protein powder)

3 egg whites

1 tsp of vanilla

3/4 tsp of baking powder

1/4 - 1/3 cup of water

blend together and have your skillet hot and spray some non-stick spray and poor out the mixture to your desired pancake size and wait for the edges to start bubbling and and then flip. They don't take very long to cook.

Just curious, do the protein shakes really help with the appetite? I've never tried any other then the Special K ready shakes, which are full of sugar.
