thanks everyone for all of your nice comments yesterday - you are very thoughtful - all of you! :) i am feeling more like myself today... less in a hazy daze. my uncle wouldn't want anyone to mope around feeling too sad. now he isn't suffering, and is in a better place. 

last night my finance planning seminar didn't take place. i walked for 60 minutes on the treadmill and did some really good stretching and sit-ups. then i watched biggest loser. i won't ruin it for anyone who didn't see it yet but i have to say, i really loved the challenge this week - the cooking one. it was awesome. they prepared these really nice dishes and they were pretty low calorie. not to mention that chef rocco was so cute. and i loved how he taught them how to cook afterwards instead of just making a meal. the vote-off was not that surprising... what do these people expect?

since it was pancake tuesday, i also made pancakes! oatmeal ones of course. 

1 banana, mushed
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup egg whites
1 t vanilla
1 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1 T splenda
1 T peanut butter
1 T jam, any flavour

mix 1/2 mushed banana, oats, egg whites, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, and splenda. let sit for a few minutes. turn on pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray. pour in 1/2 mixture and form into a pancake. flip when needed. makes two. then top one pancake with the peanut butter and the remaining mushed banana, and the other pancake with jam. SO GOOD. 

that's about it. today i'm taking a break from exercise (for sure!) and spending a quiet night in with my boyfriend. nice! today on the menu is:

fat free yogurt, with strawberries and all bran sprinkled on
maple nut organic oatmeal
2 clementines
campbell's healthy request herbed chicken noodle soup
1 slice sprouted grains toast
maybe some carrots and hummus
and dinner, as always, unplanned

Is it just my imagination , but does it look like Rocco's lost weight since he was on that reality show?

I agree with Laura and his weight loss plus he seems alot less arrogant!!

I totally missed out on pancake Tuesday - so so upset.
