Pancake Sunday

I have a few different topics to share with ya'll today:
  1. I have started a tradition around my apartment that I hope carries through to when Chris and I have children. It's Pancake Sunday. After weighing in at WW, I come home to find Chris and Reuben still in bed. Well, to be honest, Reuben meets me at the door and then runs in and gets back in bed with Chris, but I digress. I make multigrain pancakes from a Trader Joe's mix and today I experimented with it a little bit. I added a tablespoon of Fibersure the batter so it would have an extra 15 grams of fiber...about 4 extra per serving. Chris said the pancakes were great, and really, you couldn't taste the difference. Provide that there are no disasterous after effects, I'm going to continue doing that in the future.
  2. I'm still fighting the same nasty cold. I'm feeling better, but I'm still congested and I'm having to clear my throat a bit. I'm taking Sudafed Deep Sinus to get my head to clear by making it run, and I'm drinking lots of hot tea, including Breathing Thyme tea, which smells like I'm drinking poultry seasoning, but it is helping some. Plus I'm drinking tons and tons of water because I've got an unquenchable thirst and it's making me nuts.
  3. I gained 2.4 this week at weigh in, and unfortunately I'm not the only one. I'm blaming this on not this past week, but the week before where everything went awry. Plus, I'm drinking tons and tons of water, but I'm not running to the bathroom often, so I think that my cold meds are making me retain water. I'm just going to stick to my guns and assume that by next Sunday, this will all be behind me and I will have at least lost the 2.4. I'm hoping to lose a little more than that, but with Thanksgiving on Thursday and two dinners for Chris and me on that very day, I don't know if I can do more than that. Only time will tell.

All in all, life is good. It's Pancake Sunday, fer cryin' out loud!

Hey chic! I love your tradition. It sounds awesome! I truly wish we had a trader joe's around here. When I went to California last July, I so wanted to visit one, but we ran out of time and money.

Sorry you're still sick. My hubby stayed home sick today. I'm not feeling so hot myself, but my body is putting up a hell of a fight.

So...2.4? It's very spooky! But I'm having the same problem with input/output, so I totally know what you mean. I weighed this morning and it's already down. And since I'm not going crazy at Thanksgiving, I should be good.

I hope you feel better SOON!

Oh, and I forget to tell you that my son is completely obsessed with fibersure. He thinks if I buy that, I won't have to force him to eat veggies! He needs to quit dreaming, but I think it's funny that he's totally about the fiber!
