Ba-nana-na-na-nana // Weekend Recap LinkUp

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? What did you do? Something exciting? Did you try any new recipes? No matter what you did, don't forget to link it up below, because we are all nosy and want to see it! And you might even be lucky enough to get picked for the Friday feature of the "Weekend Recap".

My weekend was pretty good. I've had my first weigh-in, and dropped 3 lbs in one week!! I am super happy all this work pays off. If you follow me on myfitnesspal.com or on here, you can see there is still a long way ahead of me. 3 lbs was just a beginning. But this first step makes me proud!

Besides a whole lot of exercise, I did read a lot as well. I just started Dan Brown's "Inferno", and it's page-turner! I am a huge fan of Dan Brown books, and especially the ones featuring Robert Langdon are awesome. I'm on page 450 right now, and hopefully will finish it today or tomorrow! Did you read "Inferno" yet? No spoilers, please!

























I've tried a new recipe as well. No-fat banana muffins! There is no oil, or butter. 

It doesn't need it! Enjoy :)




For an even healthier version, use 3 egg whites instead of whole eggs, splenda or unsweetened apple sauce instead of sugar, and for the flour use 1 cup white & 1 c whole wheat. Using applesauce in place of sugar adds sweetness without the extra calories and, well, sugar. One cup of unsweetened applesauce contains only about 100 calories, while one cup of sugar can pack in more than 770 calories! You can sub sugar for apple sauce in a 1:1 ratio, but for every cup of applesauce you use, reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup.
