Weigh in tomorrow!

Hello all, I’ve had a great week on track, scales are being kind to me so far even after going out to Chinese for dinner last night!! 😉 I had This for dinner the other day and it was totally … Continue reading

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 😉

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..
