(Before you get excited, pregnancy is referring to the main focus of my Physio exam today so I’ve got it on the brain!)
Pancakes (And A Waffle)
Started today with another Vans Blueberry Waffle with AB + Raspberry jam before my early morning workout. I actually do prefer the heartier Kashi waffles so I’ll have to get those next time. Or perhaps another fun brand that’s whole grain.
At the gym, I did 45 minutes on the ET followed by upper body weights on the machines and with some resistance bands. I really like using resistance bands – they are much less awkward to handle than free weights and somehow make my muscles more tired with less weight. It was a nice workout 🙂 The next 3 days I’ll be relying on walking and running on the beach for exercise, but I’ll have to be careful I don’t wear out my foot too soon.
Since I have my exam at 11:30, I decided on the “full for hours” Cheese Danish Pancakes. I made the batter last night so they were all ready to go the morning. I was a little worried about the oats soaking up too much liquid overnight so I changed the proportions around a little, adding more egg white (1/2 a cup instead of 1/4 a cup) and less cottage cheese (3/4 a cup instead of 1 cup). Then this morning I added a splash more hemp milk. They weren’t quite as good as last time – I think they need the full cup of cottage cheese! I also omitted the banana from the batter just so I wouldn’t have to deal with it last night but definitely added the slices to each pancake this morning. But these were still wonderful! And as always, the batter is the best part!
Drizzled with a full tablespoon of almond butter –
I made 2 big pancakes, 1 medium and 1 taco pancake each.

Pregnancy + Packing
That’s what I’ll be doing today. Studying all morning, then packing all afternoon. We leave for Folly Beach right when the husband gets home! I’m planning on packing sandwiches to eat on the road for dinner. We’ll be at the beach Thursday and Friday and are spending Saturday in Charleston and returning Saturday night. We’re staying with my best friend from college, Meredith, who is celebrating the end of her third year of vet school!
OK, onto the ovarian cycle…
