Yummy Pancake

This is my version of the DUKAN pancake.  It does not follow the rules.

Connie's Breakfast Pancake

1 egg
1.5 tablespoon oat bran
1.5 tablespoon greek yogurt
Dash of Cinnamon
Smidge of Salt

Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and pour into a heated pan.  You can make two or three of these but I've found making three the perfect amount.  Turn the pancakes after a couple minutes when you see bubbles forming.

Spread with fruit spread and cottage cheese.

Under Attack!

My Dukan Attack phase was short lived.

About two days in....TOM showed up 3 days early.  The more I work on my diet, the crazier my cycles become.  I want to blame menopause but people keep telling me that 41 is too young for that.

I lost half of a pound and then I stalled.  The combination of no coffee, wine, chocolate and TOM was too much for my family so my husband begged me to stop and have a drink.

I'm only kind of kidding.

I stopped the diet but kept up the higher protein because I actually liked how I was feeling on the diet.   I just added a few carbs and a glass of wine a night.

I'm happy to report that as of this morning, I'm down 2.8 pounds!  My pants are feeling looser and I have lots of energy.

So.....I'm going to keep on keeping on.  Mostly high protein with some carbs and wine here and there.

My husband is happy because he threatened not to take me on Vacation at the end of the month if I stayed on the diet.  He doesn't want to deal with my eating restrictions at Disney Land and while visiting his very overweight family.

I don't want to go without wine while visiting his very overweight family.

Have I told you that I'm addicted to the Dukan Pancakes?  OH MY GOSH!  I love them.

I'll post my version with a picture tomorrow.
