Today’s going to be a great day! Not only is it my birthday…but it’s my golden birthday. And, 27 is my absolute favorite number.

Some 27 factoids:

  • My street address was 27 growing up
  • My favorite channel growing up (Nickelodeon, duh) was on channel 27
  • I was born on March 27th
  • I was married on September 27th (which I may or may not have chosen that date because of the number 27)

Yep, 27 and I are pretty tight. I’m going to try and hone in on 27 today and make it a 27 themed day. Ready for it?

I set my alarm this morning even though I never use an alarm –  and I woke up before the alarm went off.

Just to start my day off on a 27 note Smile

This also provided me with enough time into the gym for a couple hours, including training a client as well as getting in a workout for myself.
Today’s workout was cardio in the form of a treadmill workout. My lower body is pretty sore from yesterday’s workout, so I did about half running, half walking with an incline. It looked a lil’ something like this:


Unfortunately I couldn’t figure out how to make breakfast 27-themed (any ideas?) Or at least I wasn’t patient enough to brainstorm.

Waffles sounded good, so waffles is what I had:

I made waffles on Sunday, too, and they tasted SO amazing I had to have one again today. These aren’t just any waffles, though – they’re almond flour waffles!


Primal Waffles

Adapted from Mark’s Daily Apple

serves: 1

Time: 5-10 minutes


3/4 c. almond flour/meal

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

cinnamon and stevia to taste

1 egg

3 tbsp. almond milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Turn on your waffle iron. Mix together the dry ingredients, and then add in the wet. Spray the waffle iron with some olive oil spray, and then pour the batter into the waffle maker and cook until done. Top with whatever you’d normally top your waffles with.


On top, I dolloped out some of my favorite cottage cheese, raspberries, and some pure maple syrup. Delicious, but so filling, too! A waffle breakfast is birthday enough for me! And I wasn’t about to eat 27 waffles…or stick a candle in the middle Winking smile

Off to take Niko on a walk before work! Have a great day Open-mouthed smile

Pancakes or waffles? If I HAD to pick, I’d go with pancakes.

  2. Happy birthday Paige!! I think I’m more of a waffle person, but it could just be because we don’t have a waffle maker, so we eat them less frequently. They’ve become more of a “breakfast out” treat.

  3. Happy golden birthday! Hope you have a fabulous day!

  4. HAPPY GOLDEN BIRTHDAY!! Hope you have a great day. I celebrated my birthday yesterday.

  5. Ah!! I just had my golden birthday (24) last August, though 22 is my favorite number. I hope your birthday is as golden as those waffles!!

    And when it comes to the breakfast debate, I’m team french toast until the END OF TIME!!

    Hope you celebrate with a day that’s 2 parts work and 7 parts FUN!

  6. Happy Birthday!

  7. Yum, the protein-rich waffle breakfast sounds wonderful!

    HAPPY Golden Birthday, Paige! :)

  8. The waffle looks amazing! Happy birthday to you, Paige!

  11. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Last year was my golden birthday, 22 on the 22nd :) but I did NOT wake up at 5:22AM hahaha go you! Glad you got a good workout in. People thought I was weird for working out on my bday but I totally feel ya. Makes you feel fab so why wouldn’t you?
    Those waffles look amazing. YUM cottage cheese, a girl after my own heart :) 27 waffles may not have made you feel too good on your birthday haha.
    I’d choose pancakes too.

  12. Happy Golden BDay!! I also love the number 12 because it is my bday day :) Always has been my favorite number.
    I choose pancakes only cause they are easy to make, but I think taste wise they win by a smidge too.

  13. Happy Birthday! I just finished an almost exact breakfast to that :) Hope you have a great (27 filled) day!

  14. Happy Birthday, love! I hope it’s a great one! :) And golden birthdays are THE BEST! It’s a rule.

    I’d always pick pancakes. The more like cake, the better (in my opinion).

  15. Happy Birthday!!!!!!

  29. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you have an incredible day! I used to be all about the pancakes, lately I’ve been loving on my peanut butter cookie waffles with my protein peanut butter fudge on top. I eat this as a treat though for the most part. Your waffles look like a perfect way to start your birthday!

  30. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! you should have made pancakes in the shape of the numbers 2 and 7! I used to love making pancake shapes with my dad, he’d make pancakes every Sunday morning for my brothers and I growing up!

  32. 27 was a good year for me. I’ll trade you! hehe, happy 27th friend.

  33. Happy Birthday… my birthday is May 27th so I feel the 27 love. If I had to pick, I would go with pancakes too. Or a Belgian waffle from my college dining hall. I loved the little plastic cups with batter… and the super sweet strawberries and whipped cream. Maybe if you are lucky, there were 27 squares in your waffle:)

  34. Happy happy birthday!! I’ll always remember your anniversary now. It’s my b-day!!
    Enjoy your day!

  35. Happy Birthday! Your alarm titles crack me up!

    Pancakes, for sure :)
