1lb off this week – quite happy with that. I’m a daily weigher (please don’t judge) and most of the time I find it encouraging but this week it’s been a tad soul destroying. I’ve been 1lb down, 1lb on, on and off all week. So it was good to see that pound this morning. In fact 4 more ounces and I would have been in the next stone bracket down. I always find that my weight loss slows on the cusp of getting into the next stone down. Because of this too, it doesn’t look as though I will be making it to my mini target in time for my summer holiday. I’m hoping I’ll be close but I think it’s unlikely that I’ll get there in time. I shall not be disheartened though and keep ploughing away!
This week I’ve had 6 good EE days and one good old fashioned Green day. So what have I been eating this week?
I tried cooled couscous with yogurt and fruit for breakfast one day, not too sure about that but it wasn’t dreadful. We had a very tasty Quorn mince pasta bake when we had a friend round for tea – he didn’t realise it was quorn, lol!
We had Burger in a Bowl out of the Slimming World Fakeaway recipe book – we love this and have it at least once every couple of weeks. Sometime I have it with swede chips but as I fancied normal chips that evening so made them myself Slimming World style – my hubby always says ‘why would you ever buy frozen chips again when Slimming World ones taste so good?’ I agree with him as they’re soooooo good and best of all free!
The following day I made Fajita Chicken and Wedges again because it really is that good! You can find the recipe here!
We had a delicious pork stir fry one evening and the following day my new non stick pan arrived and to test it, I came up with a new recipe
Yesterday, the little one and I met up with my mum, sister and my two beautiful nieces for lunch and shopping. I love that if I don’t have my Healthy Extra B choice for breakfast I can have things like a wholemeal ham sandwich for lunch and only have to count a few syns for the extra bread and spread!
So this evening I have Fitness Pilates again (it wasn’t on last week as the hall was being used as a polling station) so I’m trying a new slow cooker recipe out today that I can eat when I get in. Hopefully it’s as lush as I’m hoping it will be and I’ll be sharing it with you soon! x
