Oatmeal Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes
Place all ingredients except fresh blueberries into a blender; blend until smooth. You may need to add a teaspoon or two of almond milk if batter is way too thick.
Set batter aside to thicken up for a few minutes. If batter is too thin, add a tablespoon or two more of oats and blend again.
Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter or cooking spray and heat over medium low heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto skillet. Add a few blueberries on top.
Cook until bubbles appear on top. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside. Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter. Makes 4 pancakes.

Stress can have such a HUGE impact on your body and can manifest in a variety of ways...
The list below is just the tip of the iceberg...
If you are experiencing symptoms or seem to be "stuck" in your weight loss efforts, it may be time to take a look at your stress levels. Finding ways to reduce stress in your life WILL enhance your health and well-being.
* Causes the brain to send a message to the adrenal glands to produce stress hormones.
* Causes migraines and TMJ.
* Causes anxiety, depression, insomnia, and anger.
Skin & Hair:
* Causes acne & hair loss.
* Triggers eczema and psoriasis.
* Increases heart rate and muscle contractions.
* Can lead to inflammation of the arteries.
* Leads to heart attack and/or cardiovascular disease.
Adrenal Glands & Liver:
* Stress hormones, adrenaline, cortisol, and norepinephrine, are released. All cause various health problems from prolonged exposure.
* Liver produces more glucose.
* Can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach upset.
* Makes intestines inefficiently absorb food.
* Contributes to acid reflux, GERD, and heartburn.
* Impairs testosterone and sperm production.
* Reduces sexual desire.
* Causes irregular, absent, or more painful menstrual periods in women.
While none of these "symptoms" directly impair weight loss or lead to obesity, all of these side effects of stress will impair your metabolism and your ability/desire to exercise, eat right, obtain restorative sleep, etc.
A Few Ways to Reduce Stress:
* Essential Oils
* Lavender Oil
When you get a handle on your stress levels, you'll have a much easier time achieving your weight loss and fitness goals...
Dedicated to your success,
Do you value your time?
There are many things in this world that are valuable… work, family, health, possessions, and so forth.
But it could be argued that the most valuable thing you’ll ever have in this world, outside of your health, is your TIME. In fact, the way you use your time has a major impact on the quality of your health.
Are you making time for exercise and nutrition?
Or do you just kill time; hoping you’ll feel fine and everything will work out fine?
I would suggest that your success and failure, in almost every part of your life, depend almost entirely on how you use your TIME.
Think about it. You can always get another job, and you always get new possessions.
You can never get more TIME, and you can never recapture the TIME you’ve spent.
Do you value your time and are you spending it where you get the most bang for your buck?
You can’t get it back.
To your success,
Make the Sacrifices!
One the most common mindsets I encounter having worked with hundreds of people doing personal training is a lack of courage and self-esteem.
It is never the ability to conquer and be successful, just fear of failure. The only time we fail is when we give up.
"The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become." ~ Charles Dubois
Hearing these words and reading these words and knowing these words is not enough. We have to BELIEVE these words.
Believing this takes sacrifice, it takes turning away, it takes courage.
If we do this, the sky is the limit.
To your success,
