feeling better

yesterday was the pits! when i left work it was raining and cold and i had to ride my bike all the way home in the rain! boooooo! it's about 5km and i was soaked. i had to stop at my voting station first as well. my black pants were so wet they looked like leather - yuck. i got home and made some tea and ate a 100 cal pack of oreos. then i went to the gym and went to the grocery store.

i made this potato pancake recipe:

1 med/large potato grated
1 zucchini grated
1 large carrot grated
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 eggs, slightly whisked
2 tbsp flour
salt and pepper

combine all ingredients. spray a pan with non-stick spray and cook away. it made about 4-5 pancakes (1/2 cup heaping each)
since i'm not a ww online member anymore i don't have the recipe builder but i calculated this at about 2 points each. i ate 2 with some ff sour cream and they were pretty good. it was a pain in the ass trying to squeeze water out of those veggies though. i have two left so i will eat them tonight for dinner.

thank goodness tomorrow is friday. i was up late reading last night and need to go to bed early tonight. i am a zzz zombie.

here is today's menu:

disturbing amounts of coffee, at home and at work (0)
1/2 cup oats (2)
banana (2)

i am still hungry but am waiting for lunch.

some sort of microwave meal (6)

more pancakes (4)

and then snacks yet to be determined.

hahaha, good morning! i feel like a funk is just sort of going around. lack of sleep/less than amazing weather= a generally not super excited feeling about life. don't let it get to ya! just think, you really earned those oreos after hassling with your bike in the rain! i'm about to risk it on my bike to the grocery store in a minute (keeps me from buying WAY more than i need, haha) hope the weather holds.
p.s. i love reading your posts almost every day, brightens my mornings for sure!

Mmmm the potato pancakes sound yummy. I've never tried them before. The idea of pancake to me is eomthing that should be covered in sweet maple syrup so whenever I hear about potato pancakes, I automatically think about potatoes covered in maple syrup, yuck!
Tomorrow is Friday! YAY!
