Chirstmas Party Season!

Its that time of year again! Christmas Party season has arrived  far sooner than I expected it. This time of year can be a bit of a minefield and a good excuse to give up on your weight loss. I did a guest post last year on Skinny Doll's blog all about why its not a good idea to give up, so if you are feeling a little overwhelmed with the weeks to come check it out!

Chicken & Ham Pie

There is nothing like a pie that screams comfort food! I love pastry far too much and its a very rare treat when I do have it. Finding a way of having real puff pastry without eating into my weekly propoints is always welcome. I'm a big fan of the Hairy Dieters  Tangle Pie, but I find there is a lot of waste when using filo pastry and not using the whole pack. So cooking with it for only 2 people isn't really an option. Jus-rol do low fat puff pastry. It will only save you a point or so, but sure every point counts at the end of the day.

Chicken & Chorizo Risotto

We just can't seem to get enough Risotto in our place lately. It is such a lovely comforting plate of food. It's so versatile in terms of what flavours you can add, it can almost be a fridge dump type of dinner.

November Already!!

I am actually in shock that it is the 5th of November. I really have no idea where this year is gone but its nearly over. September and October disappeared and seem to have taken my goals away with them. I have still hovering in and around the 11 stone mark. I haven't been gaining weight but I haven't been losing it either. I seem to have a couple of really good weeks, then a couple of weeks where I am 100% Monday to Friday but have a bit of a blow out at the weekend.
