a real post!

Well I was just realizing it had been awhile since I wrote an actual post, I'm sorry, I'm slacking. I've been fighting this cold, and with work picking up, I've been a tired puppy lately.

Still fighting the cold, it's been a week now. I am definitely starting to feel better, finally, but I'm still congested and have the yucks a bit. So hopefully by the weekend, I'll be feeling A+ again. Can't wait for food to taste like something again, instead of cardboard!

Well things with K went south. No real reasons, I was the one who said no more. There were a lot of differences between us, too many for me to deal with. I'll find the right one eventually!

On the weight watchers front, I think everything is going ok, I've been making sure, even through being sick that I'm eating my points, because I don't want my body to be starved and want to make up for it once I'm healthy again. I've been eating lots of veggies, not doing so hot on my milk, as I'm trying to avoid it while sick. But I've been staying at my 22 points a day, and I haven't had any "off the wagon" days in awhile. I am hoping to see a nice loss this week.

Kathy, I will post the Curry Tuna recipe this weekend, it's really yummy, and very low point!

Noelle, the whole grain apple pancakes, I take Roni's Whole Grain Pancake Recipe and cut up 2 or 3 apples and add them at the end. I also sub out the other spices for apple pie spice. This time I also instead of making individual pancakes, I put the apples on the bottom of a greased 9X13 pan and dumped the batter over them, and baked it at 425 for about 15 minutes. Made making pancakes so much less work!

Other than that, nothing terribly exciting going on. Tonight is meat shopping for my next round of meals, trying to get them handled before the holiday shopping madness that I'm sure will be around at the grocery store starting this weekend!

Hope everyone is having a healthy and happy day!
