Lemon Honey Chicken

Decided to go for the cheaper cuts of chicken the past week - trying to keep to a budget. They usually come with the skins on but they are easy enough to pull off. This was super tasty, warming winter dinner. Takes some cooking time but easy to do.

It was one of those weeks, and I knew it was coming. I was all over the place - despite my list last week I did not stick to any of it. Tracking went out the window, I had no planning done so I had no idea what I was eating day to day and I was just hungry all day every day. I had no control and I think that was my biggest problem. Its the worst sort of week to feel like that, with a bank holiday weekend its tough enough to feel like that.

I have to say I feel relieved that stepping onto the scales all I saw was a 1lb gain! I think my saving grace is all the walking I am doing now I live in the city centre. Anyway I have drawn a line and moved on - and planning is on the agenda this week. Have no major plans this week so hopefully that will help things too!

Good news wise it is Halloween which is my favourite time of year! Honestly I prefer it to Christmas. I love getting dressed up and this year was twice as fun as recent years as I actually felt like I could wear whatever I wanted and not worry about my body. Two years ago when I was just home from traveling 3 weeks and really very uncomfortable with all the weight I had gained I wore a box as my costume - I was a birthday present. The costume itself was quite cool but it was worn out of necessity, and I was not even at my heaviest ever. This year was a different story and I got to try out a costume that I've wanted to do for ages - a puppet. And I felt great in it, and fit into a belt that hasn't fit me in about 4 years so YAY! Anyway here are some pics of the 2 costumes so you can see the difference!

Chicken Nuggets!

Finally going to get back to posting some recipes - I know I haven't in a while. I have a few things I have tried recently that I will post over the next few weeks. I really fancied a chipper one friday night recently but didn't have the propoints. I knew if I went to the supermarket I would buy something unhealthy, that was just the mood I was in. So I decided to make some chicken nuggets and chips, as close to chipper as I was going to get and they were really very tasty, satisfied my craving for something "bold". And they were very easy.

I'm just going to dive right in and say how relieved, amazed and happy I was to see 1.5lbs come down this week. I swear it must have been a combination of the extra walking I'm doing and how good I had been the 2 weeks previous because I really lost the run of myself. I don't know if I deserved the loss because well tracking wasn't my strongest point this weekend. Against my better judgement I am going to list the worst of my sins. Confession is good for the soul and all that, I guess writing it down will snap me back on track - or that's the plan anyway.

Weigh in 40!

Another week and another pound gone! Never get tired of posting a loss!! Getting closer and closer to goal that it is actually starting to feel real. I really believe that this time I will make it to goal.

Weigh in 39

Well its been a busy week, so I didn't have time to post after my weigh in. I've been busy moving house which is a nightmare. Have to be racking up the activity points with all the lifting and running around I've been doing. Also am now living walking distance from work so will be doing an hours walk every day just getting to and from work which can only help things. Had a treat of a takeaway and half a bottle of cava last night to celebrate moving day but I still have 17 weeklies left. So I am feeling pretty good about getting weighed this week.

Weigh In 38

Down 2lbs this week! So delighted with it, would have been happy with anything. I know things slow down towards the end. And I am ok with that as long as things keep on moving the right direction. I got back on track with my fruit and veg this week, especially at the weekend. It was the big thing holding me back - was snacking on all the wrong foods at the weekends and just completely losing the run of myself.
