Whenever I have an crazy day in my future, I try to wake up a little early and make myself and Future Husband a "special breakfast." It just makes the whole day go better!
My favorite pancake mix in the whole world is Hodgson Mill InstaBake, but we were all out! So, I tried my hand at a WW pancake recipe. These pancakes are more dense than fluffy and packed with almonds for a little extra crunch.
Foodbuzz helped me make my breakfast (thanks for the apron and spatula)!!

I served my pancakes with a sliced banana. Its always fun to stack a silver dollar pancake and a banana slice on the same fork, and then dip it all into real maple syrup! 🙂
And, of course, I had a coffee.
Today is going to be craaaaaazy! I hate working under deadline pressure. I try to remind myself that it ALWAYS gets done, but when you’re beginning a project, the task can seem so insurmountable.
After work, I get to run my 1st tempo run! I’m excited to try a new training style. 🙂
What special treats do you give yourself when you’re had a bad day? In addition to special breakfasts, I also like to indulge in bad reality television. 🙂

When I’ve had a bad day, I like frozen yogurt or laying on the couch. 🙂 I never do that!
