Fabulous weekend, but…

I am glad to be back on track now.. However I had a lovely weekend of eating and drinking with my friends.. after a weigh in that showed me I had lost 1.4lbs this past week giving me another 7 on my online tracker and making me realise I am 3lbs away from my 10% so that is my goal for the next two weeks! On Saturday I went to my nephews 4th birthday party, I ate cake, chocolate orange brownies that were amazing!! I’m totally serious these were by far the best thing I have ever tasted.. So much so I had 3!!! Oh my god, I will be endeavouring to grab the recipe from my sister in law and trying to scale them down to make them pp friendly as she told me how many calories were in one and the ingredients.. Trust me you don’t want to know if your following ww lol. I also had a couple of sausage rolls and pink wafers, along with half a cheese bap and some tomato and cucumber! I quite happily ate all of this knowing that I had my weeklies and over half my dailies left to cover it.. In the evening we had some friends round for dinner, I was going to make Leek and mushroom risotto in the slow cooker but my sister in law lent me a big electric frying pan thing which is like a huge wok really so I did the risotto in that instead it was gorgeous and looked so nice in the pan but I forgot to take a photo 😦 I will post the recipe for this later on tonight as I just want to tell you my daily menu for yesterday and today in this post. So after the amount of wine and crap I consumed on Saturday I wanted to get back on track quite quickly yesterday but I was hungover which means I really wanted comfort food, food that has substance and doesn’t feel like it is too healthy if you catch my drift.. So this is what I made

Yummy beans and mushrooms on toast with fresh parsley and 20g reduced fat cheese! 10pp

Fantastic hangover food yet not wasting any of my daily pro points! So my menu for yesterday was:

Brunch: 2 slices of kingsmill 50/50 5pp, 1 butter bud sachet 0pp mixed with 2 tbsp water and a pinch of garlic granules, 100g mushrooms sliced 0pp, 200g nume baked beans 4pp, 20g co-op reduced fat cheddar 1pp. 

Dinner: Nume cajun spiced chicken fettucine 11pp.

Snacks: 10g cheerios 1pp, drizzled with 15g dark chocolate drops 2pp and a bottle of Lucozade revive 1pp This is my go to drink when hungover.. so glad they do a sugar free version now!! 

My daily menu today was: 

Breakfast: 30g cheerios 3pp, 120ml skimmed milk 1pp.

Lunch: weight watchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 50g wafer thin turkey 1pp, 1 shallot sliced 0pp, 15g low low cheese 1pp and 15g light salad cream 1pp.

Dinner: 50g wafer thin turkey 1pp, 170g mash potato 4pp, nume baked beans 200g 4pp and 15g low low cheese 1pp. 

Snacks: none yet but I have 6pp left and will maybe have something out of my graze box or one of those tasty little treat bars I posted about last week. 

So that’s that I am glad I have managed to get back on track so quickly and easily as we all know, best of all me how easy it is to go off track after a day like I had Saturday.. Yesterday after all that the scales were showing +3, today +2, so hopefully come Friday it will be less.. or at least a sts, I have to weigh in early this week as we are off to London for the weekend on Friday so I won’t be here to weigh in as normal on Saturday!

The Weightwatchers app for android has arrived..Finally!!

I am so happy even though I don’t have an android phone.. I have a blackberry lol, anyway the reason I am so excited is the weightwatchers app for android phones has finally landed and downloaded it to my sisters samsung galaxy note today to see what it was like and have a play around with it! The verdict I love it and when my phone upgrade is due in Jan I will be getting a galaxy note, not an I phone which I was going to get purely for the weightwatchers app, the only downside I have is that it doesn’t have the recipe builder on it… But then I guess if your cooking or baking you are more than likely going to be at home or somewhere near a connection to the internet so it’s not that much of a downside for me. I have heard some of my friends on a facebook group for ww support that I am in, cannot download the app.. I struggled to find it in the google play market also.. So I just searched google and found the link to download it! Also today for dinner I had the weight watchers alfredo bolognaise.. And I have to say I wasn’t that keen it really didn’t have much flavour at all, I was quite disappointed as bolognaise is one of my favourite meals! I’m still not feeling 100% but I did manage to get up to my sister’s and bake a cake for my nephew’s 4th Birthday tomorrow and walk Cia.. We are having a party for him on Sat so be prepared to be bombarded with pictures of all my niece’s and nephew’s 😀 So my menu today was:

Breakfast: 35g hot oats 3pp, 120ml Skimmed milk 1pp, 10g Dark chocolate drops 1pp and 15g Whole earth natural peanut butter 2pp.

Lunch: weightwatchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 3 slices garlic sausage 1pp, 1 Mushroom sliced, 75g Nume chicken tikka sandwich filler 2pp and 1 tomato 1pp.

Dinner: Weightwatchers alfredo bolognaise 9pp.

Snacks: 1 pack whisps 3pp, 2 maria biscuits 1pp. 

Total used 26/26 and scales looking mighty fine this morning! 

So that’s me for today am off to a child minding information day tomorrow and then my 3rd mile swim for my Aspire swim the channel challenge..
