Weigh In 29

I have had a busy week this week. It was my birthday which meant all the celebrations were happening. First of all was the actual birthday dinner - chose something relatively healthy but my absolute favourite and we had sushi. The naughty side was the chocolate cake and all the wine. More than worth it and if you can't have a treat on your birthday then when can you.

Butternut Squash and Chickpea Stew

I have a habit of using a lot of my daily propoints in work over lunch and in the afternoon. We have all free food in work and sometimes it is hard to resist ( i need to realign my will power a little). So to counter that I have been making ratatouille or veg curry to bring to work for lunch or to have for dinner after work when I have used most of my propoints. This week I decided to try something a little different and hopefully a bit more interesting and filling. Have only had a small taste but I think its yum and at only 2pp a serving its a perfect lunch.

Down another pound today. Knew I had had a pretty good week, but I had some pretty unhealthy foods (all within my propoints) and I was feeling very bloated. So I just didn't know what to think. I always second guess myself but I am following this properly and I deserve the results I've been getting. I really have to keep telling myself that because sometimes I just can't believe its true. This week I am doing a serious push on the power of positive thoughts for this week.

Weigh In 27

I'm a bit behind again this week. Have been all over the place, but I am happy to report that I was down another pound. I find myself starting to lose my will power at times a little - most of the time I am fine, but especially when others are indulging I just want to be able to have what I want when I want. Which is what got me in the position I was in January. So its time to revisit the mini goals I set back in April and get myself motivated and back on track! So I exceeded the previous targets I set for myself - and I felt they were totally reasonable.

Weigh In 26

No loss this week, big fat 0 on the scales. Pretty happy with that, one too many vodka and burger king on saturday night probably had an awful lot to do with it. I most definitely went over my weeklies between friday and saturday so a 0 is welcome sight.

Beef Wellington

Made this for my lovely OH's birthday the other night. Its his favourite meal and I wanted to make it for him and also one for me thats WW friendly. Apart from mine being much smaller than his (still very filling) - he still got the lower fat ingredients and he thought it was lovely.
