Ten in 10 Update 4 and Banana Pancakes

I don't know if it came through in last week's update but I was feeling a little blah about my Ten in 10 journey. So this week I didn't do anything special. Oh I still exercised but apart from that I didn't worry about any calorie counting or food choices. The result? I actually lost weight.

No wonder dieting makes us all crazy when there's no rhyme or reason to it!

This week I re-read 'Changing Habits, Changing Lives' by Cyndi O'Meara. I think this is one of the most common sense approaches to healthy living and re-reading it has brought me back to basics.

The premise is simple: unhealthy habits like skipping breakfast, not exercising and drinking too much coffee are all habits that can be broken. Unlike other programs where you go cold turkey, here you read one chapter at a time and start a new healthy habit. Chapter 1 is on eating a healthy breakfast every day. So for a week or month or however long it takes you to form that habit, that's all you work on before proceeding to chapter 2.

Now I've always eaten breakfast. There's no way I would make it through the day if I didn't. But this week I will be enjoying some healthier and more filling options like bircher muesli. Hopefully will have some recipes to post as well.

Now onto another breakfast, we had these scrummy banana pancakes a few weeks ago. They were without doubt the BEST banana pancakes on the face of the earth. I took photos and filed it away to post sometime. Problem is I made up the recipe on the spot and I cannot for the life of me remember what I did.

I know there was yoghurt in them, and ... umm ... bananas? Sorry 'bout that.

But here is a photo of the best banana pancakes on the planet served with greek yoghurt and maple syrup. Enjoy! :)
