Soooo happy with this, although I gave blood earlier in the day, that may have helped!!
10lbs so far, well on my way to a stone for Christmas, definitely!! (I hope lol)
So, Greggs – you know, Greggs the Baker which sells an array of tasty yet so bad for you goodies (as well as some better for you ones) – I noticed yesterday on my trip to get my youngest a sandwich that they were selling Toast and Jam Muffins. WHAT?
Yes. Toast flavoured muffin. Bread flavoured cake. Whatever next? Being a good girl, I didn’t buy one but I was intrigued, so being the wonderful brother he is (and lover of cakes) my older brother got one today at tea break (yeah we work in the same place) and he let both myself and my WW work companion buddy try a bit. Just a small bit, and tbh that was enough. It was ok, tasted a bit like eating a baguette with no butter on it, so pretty much just dry bread. The muffin itself seemed a lot denser than a regular muffin, so really all Greggs have done is created a Bruffin or some Mufread, Mread, whatever you want to call it. I can’t say I am dying to try it again, he, however, seemed happy with his purchase.
I came away with just a Skinny Capp and I had a Banana for breakfast, so I won’t be partaking in cake. I had a super filling Dinner last night though. I had a bunch of points left as I’d eaten soup again for Lunch and I ended up having four slices of 50/50 – toasted – with 2 scrambled eggs and some cooked plum tomatoes, it was lovely and so so filling! I am really hoping to lose again this week but I am not sure if my weekend hindered me, only a few days to find out.
I need to buy new jeans, so I am hoping to have lost a dress size. I also hope to win the lottery and that David Boreanez will sweep me off my feet, think the chances of all are pretty slim by the weekend. Damn it.
I have mentioned before Tuesdays are my nemesis. They are my longest day out of the house and dinner seems to fall apart, I had every intention of putting something in the slow cooker today, but I didn’t. So there.
Yesterday I went out with my mum too, and I hadn’t eaten that many points during the day, which left me with over 14 to use at night, which at 8pm doesn’t fill me with joy as I try not to eat too much past 7.30pm. I didn’t know what I wanted, I made soup to bring to work today which was Cauliflower, Broccoli and Cabbage – which of course was 0 points, it tasted a little… green… so I threw 4 points worth of Light Philly into it and it creamed it up and made it taste DELICIOUS! But still, thats only 1 point per serving so THAT was no good.
What is a fat girl to to when her fridge is filled with 0 point items?! I could have had a chocolate bar, or ten packets of crisps (ok maybe 2) or cake, oh god yes cake. But I really fancied a Crisp Sandwich, and I was like NO HEATHER, NO YOU CAN’T… but you know what? I could and I did and I bloody loved it. Four slices of Crustless 50/50, a light spread of butter to cement all that crap together and 1 packet of Weightwatchers Crinkle Cut Crisps. GOD – IT WAS SO GOOD.
I was puffed up like a peacock all yeahhhh mothertruckers I am on a DIET and here I am scoffing a Crisp Sandwich, ALL PRAISE THE CRISP SANDWICH.
Just another victory for a fat girl eating what she wants as long as she sticks to the rules, Diet 0 – Heather 1.
I am half way through my first week back counting EVERYTHING I put into my mouth, and I haven’t murdered anyone yet.
Actually that isn’t true, I almost murdered someone last night when I went to my cupboards and wanted to find my Chocolate Hot Shot to give my pudding a hint of chocolate to find it had GONE. TUT.
I need to get myself back into the routine of smoothies for breakfast, but at the minute I just tend to grab some fruit then have another piece of fruit with my 10am coffee (skimmed, of course), so yesterday was quite a low points day. Fruit for Brekkie, 2 points of Soup for Lunch with yet more Fruit, and then that left me with an astonishing amount of points for Tea! Not a bad thing, except Tuesdays are so long for me, I finish work at 5pm, but my youngest has her Rainbows group at 5.30pm-6.30pm, so my SiL brings her to my workplace, we snack her and my niece up, we deliver them to Rainbows and by the time I am home its 5.45pm, then I have to make sure my adorable yet incontinent little pug hasn’t crapped the hell out of the house as soon as I am home and of course by then the Teen is normally dying of starvation, so by the time I have finished faffing, found time to use the toilet, check my post and breathe I have to leave again to pick her up which means my day seems SO long, and by the time I am home and I am sorted I don’t feel like prepping a big dinner.
My plan in future is to slow cook something on Tuesdays, but last night I was like “crap” because I had so many points and nothing I really wanted to eat. My youngest requested Fishfingers and Smiley Faces, AHA! I thought.. FISHFINGER SANDWICHES. So thats what I did – and they were bloody delightful.
Dieting isn’t always about eating the best looking salad, avoiding all fats and fried foods, it’s about balance and I really bloody loved my Fishfinger Sarnie! – OK I have an air-fryer so nothing is deep fried, but still. I am loving the fact that I can still eat the silly things, along with the healthy, it’s just all about the balance.
I did it, I got myself up and out bright and early on a Saturday AM and I joined the local Weightwatchers meeting. I needed to do it, I need the support (aka the shame of someone weighing me). I was, however, pleasantly surprised to find I weighed nearly 7lbs less than I thought I did, so that was nice!
The leader is lovely and the group seem really nice, and we don’t have to sit around in a circle and talk about ourselves, which is a winner in my book. I was really pleased I went, and I started counting points right away! I did stumble a bit on Saturday night as I went out, and I did eat, and I did drink… but I pointed it all and started back on Sunday fresh as a daisy!
My experiments with Jar Salads and Soups will continue, I am in a soupy mood at the moment, so I dug out my soupmaker yesterday and threw in a random selection – Potatoes, Mushrooms, Vege Stock, Onion and some Chorizo I found floating about (not literally, ew) and all in all it tasted pretty good, and was only 7 points for over a litre of delicious soup, which will last me three days, GET IN!
This is my soup in all its glory
And to quote my brother “Aren’t I lucky? I got a chunky bit” – bonus points if you get the film reference.
