I’ve taken my gain and..

Rolled with it today, I managed to get my gain down from +6 earlier in the week to just +2.6 today.. That may seem like a lot to some but after seeing +6 like I say I will definitely take +2.6 trust me!! 
So last night I decided if the weather was nice today I would go for a walk today and I did a nice stroll along the seafront to Hove lagoon totalling 6.4 miles and it took me 2 hours 🙂
I actually planned my menu for today last night.. And I am starting to realise that this is key for me, planning my meals I’ve never really been one for sitting down one evening and planning my meals for the week, I kinda just go with the flow I know roughly what I am having but sometimes not dinner. Anyway I am now realising that planning is a massive thing and am going to make more of an effort to plan more of my meals for the week in advance. So my menu today was: 
 
Breakfast: 35g Mornflake jumbo oats 3pp, 100ml Skimmed milk 1pp, 50g Apple and blueberry puree 0pp.
 
Lunch: Discovery garlic and herb tortilla wrap 3pp (These are really yummy and the same pp as ww ones!) 50g Mushrooms sliced 0pp, quarter small onion sliced 0pp, quarter small red pepper 0pp, 15g philadelphia extra light 0pp, 10g sweet chilli sauce 1pp.
 
Dinner: Sharwoods chinese chicken rice 12pp, 10g sweet chilli sauce 1pp.
 
Snacks: Penguin 2pp,  I also had a protein smoothie which was 100g frozen mixed berries 0pp, 200ml skimmed milk 2pp, 25g scoop maxitone sculptress protein powder 3pp, 5g golden syrup 0pp.
 
Total used 28/26 2 weeklies used and for mfp I used 1211 calories and was under all of my goals apart from sugar! (Not good!) 
 
So I’m feeling much more in control now and hoping the next time we go away I wont take so long to get back on track.. I have a wedding to go to next Friday so think I will be weighing in early then too! Tomorrow I am off to the gym to start the c25k programme again from like week 3 as I really enjoy running and miss it when I am not doing it, just hope my muscles stop aching by then 😉

No weekly pro points=More control + A little beauty!

I have come to the realisation to day that having no weekly pro points left to use, means I have more control over my food.. As on the weekend I pretty much usually just use them all. However this week I didn’t and it has made me feel like my hunger is out of my own control more than once this week, which I don’t like one bit! 
Last night after my walk I was ravenous and ended up having two wraps instead of one plus 3.. Yes that says 3 packets of crisps and 2 Maria biscuits!! End result.. All of my weeklies gone bar 2, I was feeling depressed and guilty that I had let my self control slip but today when I woke up I felt more in control knowing I only had my dailies to use and therefore have felt happier and more in control today.. Funny what little tricks your mind can play isn’t it?! 
Today has been a fantastic day in the sunshine.. 😀 While Chris was in the gym I went into town to pick up a couple of bits for Letitia’s first day back at school tomorrow and something for dinner tonight, I also picked up a really great card for Chris’ Birthday in a couple of weeks, He’s going  to love it! After meeting Chris from the gym we grabbed a subway for lunch and sat down in the sunshine to eat it, I am definitely a sunshine girl.. Could easily emigrate to somewhere like Arizona in a heartbeat!!! After our lunch we went to Costa and had a coffee (Well Chris did, I had green tea with cranberry) out in the sun again, watched the world go by and saw this little beauty 

VW Stunner!

They guy apparently hires it out for people to use as their wedding transport, how fabulous is that! 😀 
After that we went to the beach for a bit.. Has been one of the best, relaxing days in the sun for a while. 
 
My menu today was:
 
Breakfast: 2 Weetabix baked with golden syrup 4pp, 120ml Skimmed milk 1pp.
 
Lunch: Low fat Turkey and Ham subway with green peppers and onions with sweet onion sauce 8pp.
 
Dinner: Nume Cajun spiced chicken fettucine 11pp. 
 
Snacks: 2 Maria biscuits 1pp (These are a bit like rich tea biscuits, they are a substitute for Graham crackers that you see used in American recipes for cheesecake etc.. I plan on making a strawberry cheesecake on Saturday so will show you a pic of them then.) I bought them in the 99p shop you get 3 packs for that 99p so very worth it I think! 
 
Total used 25/26pp 🙂 
 
Tomorrow I am taking Cia for another long walk so plan on having a good breakfast and taking some filling and healthy foods to munch on to keep me full up so I am not starving when I get back this time! Much Love Gems 😀
