Pancakes and 1000 Push Ups


I love pancakes.
I dont care how many calories they have in them.
Sugar, lemon, syrup…take your pick, they all taste nice!
Balanced eating is good.
Fruit and veg are good.
Good quality meats.
Plenty of fluids.
Pancakes sit in there somewhere.
The only thing I have to compete with is those kids of mine.
They’d happily sweep up the remains of a flip gone wrong if it meant they get another.
But in all seriousness, it’s good to let your hair down.
Have a bit of fun with food.
Paula put up a great recipe in our Facebook group.

On the subject of 1000 Push Ups!
I’ve challenged everyone in our facebook group to do 1000 Push Ups in March.
Not at all!
Break it down.
It’s just 3 x 11 every day for a month.
3 minutes of your time…tops!
We’ve got men and women of all ages joining in.
Having a bit of fun with it.
You can go into credit and debit with them.

Its the sum total of the small efforts that make the big numbers.

It’s the same for getting fit.
Working with kettlebells.
Losing weight.
Running a marathon.
Training for a triathlon.
Break it down into bite size pieces (thinking of pancakes again!).

That way, you can get to the end of March you can turn to your friends and say…

“I did 1000 push ups last month!”

Bragging rights, right there!

Have a great evening.

ps.  Here’s a great alternative you could have most days and is in my Smart Eating Cook Book.

  • Sliced banana.
  • Cinamon
  • Butter or Oil


  1. Heat Pan
  2. Add a small amount of butter or oil (if its butter don’t let it burn).
  3. Add the slices of banana and brown them slightly (this will take seconds.)
  4. Add your beaten eggs.
  5. Cook like a normal omelet and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
