Another good loss this week.. And baked potatoes!

So I lost another 2.2lbs this week and that combined with my 2.8lb loss last week makes 5lbs in two weeks!! Clearly not having my cooker connected is helping with my weight loss, Hmm untapped market in the weight loss industry?? I think so! I have some reviews for you on some more of the Morisson Nume range which has replaced their eat smart range, The first one is Chicken tikka sandwich filler 2pp for up to 70g, Very yummy and filling probably the best one of the two I tried. The second one is Chicken fajita sandwich filler and again 2pp for up to 70g.. This one was ok but I’m more of a Tikka girl anyway but wanted to give it a try. You could use these in a variety of ways, obviously in a sandwich 😉 I used mine in wraps as I really don’t eat bread that much these days, You could use them as a filling for a jacket potato, mix them with some rice or cous cous.. the possibilities are endless I tell ye! I also tried some Nume cream cheese and black pepper multi grain crisps 25g pack 3pp.. I am in love with them, that is alll I have to say on it TRY THEM!! 😀 Today I decided to get a bit funky with my cereal as I have the same thing every day so I thought I’d spice it up a bit and make it pretty, I added a couple of drops of red food colouring and some vanilla essence but it did the trick…

All spunked up cereal!

I tend to use 120ml in my cereal and 30ml in my coffee.. This is the only milk I have all day, the rest of the time my coffee is black and I drink green tea and water lots of it! I have also been busy today applying for the foodie penpal scheme out there for bloggers and readers of blogs, Thank you to Vincente of http://vittlemonster.com/ and Lindsay from http://www.theleangreenbean.com for pointing me in the right direction to find out about it in the UK as it sounded fabulous! I signed up over at http://thisisrocksalt.com and can’t wait to get my first email and start out with my first box http://thisisrocksalt.com/foodie-penpals/ Click <<< that link there and it will tell you all about it!! 

 

My menu today was:

Breakfast: 35g Hot oat cereal 3pp, 150ml Skimmed milk 1pp.

Lunch: 2 Weight watchers tortilla wraps 5pp, 70g Nume Chicken tikka sandwich filler 2pp, 70g Nume chicken fajita sandwich filler 2pp, 60g Sliced mushrooms 0pp, Pack of Nume cream cheese and black pepper multi grain crisps 3pp.

Dinner: Jacket potato 185g 4pp, 200g Nume baked beans 4pp, 17g Extra light philadelphia 0pp, 60g Sliced mushrooms 0pp, 30g Co-op reduced fat grated cheddar 2pp, 1 Butter bud sachet 0pp.

Snacks: none, I haven’t been that hungry in all honesty I probably could have had one of those wraps for lunch instead of two as they were quite filling, well we live and we learn.

New weekly pro points in the bank as of today so will no doubt have a couple of drinks or more later on with Chris, I tend to use my weeklies all over the weekend or at least by Monday at the latest as I find if I spread them out through the week I either sts or gain. Here’s to another great week folks, Much love Gems 😀 

Wi day tomorrow.. Ooohh the excitement!

So tomorrow is wi day and I’m really looking forward to it as the scales have been showing some pretty nice numbers since I started eating my breakfast again! 😀 I went for a nice wander down the seafront today as I saw a pic on facebook of a philadelphia stand down there giving away choccy treats mmm yummy! I had 5 small bites when I say small I mean like 1″ size so I pointed them at 6pp, which I think is more than fair. My menu today was:

Breakfast: The usual.. 35g Hot oat cereal 3pp, 150ml skimmed milk 1pp.

Lunch: I marinaded a pack of that bernard mathhews turkey chunks 3pp in 2 tbsp lime juice 0pp and 1/4 tsp each of garam masala, garlic powder, cumin, ginger, cayenne, paprika, black pepper 0pp, then mixed that with 60g cooked cous cous 2pp and some sliced mushrooms 0pp.

Dinner: Nume Spicy piri piri chicken bake… Beware and always check the pp as this says 9pp on the pack but actually worked out at 10pp!! 

Snacks: 5 mini choc philly bites 6pp, Banana maybe if I’m peckish?! 😉 

Total used 25/26! 

Well that is all the words I have for you today.. Come back tomorrow for the result of my wisdom you have had all week, Much love Gems 😀 

Is it odd I’m addicted to mushrooms.. And a recipe! :)

Anyhow am in quite a happy mood today even if it is the dreaded totm.. Strange what stepping on the scales can do for your mood, I am almost 100% certain now that it is breakfast that is key for me with this weight loss malarchy as today I have been light again! I have also just spent a small fortune for O/H birthday in Sept.. We are going to our friends in London for the weekend following his birthday, So I have booked a surprise karaoke session at the Lucky voice venue in Soho for the four of us and we get a free round of shots as it’s a birthday.. Also just about to book a table at our Favourite little Italian restaurant Pulcinella, it was the our first restaurant we went to on our first weekend in London when we first started seeing one another just over 3 years ago.. Oh He is going to love it! Anyway…
