Wi in day tomorrow..Waiting brings excitement and trepidation!

So tomorrow is weigh in day.. I am excited as the scales have been showing roughly a 1lb loss all week although today I feel heavy and bloated, It could be because I am tired but I hate that it makes me feel like I have to be nervous about my official weigh in! I also have had my daughter replaced by that of an alien or at least that’s what it feels like.. I always knew that once my daughter reached the teenage years that it was going to be hard but I feel helpless sometimes especially at that time of the month if you catch my drift.. She barely talks to me any more and I hate it I don’t know why she has suddenly turned into this alien that I feel like I barely know these days. It makes me stressed out and that leads me to my point,  I am an emotional eater I know this and understand it I have read a lot about it and found out ways to curb this and I pretty much feel I have it under control nowadays, but Letitia being so stressed out this morning and banging around at 6am, cause I wouldn’t let her have the day of school as she “felt ill” made me stressed out today and that made me hungry.. I’m glad I sat down and thought about it because if I hadn’t I may have ended up having some sort of binge.. If I’m completely honest and it wasn’t weigh in day tomorrow I don’t think I would have had so much self control.. But I’m proud that I did and I hope it pays off and shows on the scales in the morning! So my menu today was:

Breakfast: 35g Hot oats 3pp, 120ml skimmed milk 1pp and 7g of honey 1pp.

Lunch: Microwave pizza home made:-Weight watchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 1Tbsp tomato puree 0pp, 1 mushroom sliced 0pp, 1 shallot sliced 0pp, 3 slices of garlic sausage chopped/ripped into pieces 1pp(If I’m honest I ate 1 and 1/2 slices and put 1&1/2 on the pizza) and 30g co-op reduced fat grated cheddar 2pp.

My pizza before I blitzed it..                            

 

And after all for 6pp!

 

Dinner: 60g cous cous 2pp, 150g Nume piri piri chicken sandwich filler 5pp and a small sprinkling of parmasean cheese 0pp. 

Snacks: 1 pack of whisps 3pp and 1 caramella sundae 4pp. 

Total used 25/26! 

Tomorrow I have my nephews 4th birthday party and we have friends coming round for dinner and drinks also.. So have a feeling my weeklies will be blown all in that one day :O Seeing as my cooker is still not connected and one of the friends we have coming over is vegetarian, I have opted and found a recipe to make a mushroom and leek risotto in my slow cooker I will post the recipe  either tomorrow or Sunday and a pic of it too. I am off for my 3rd mile swim now and I can’t say in all honesty I am looking forward to it as I am  very tired but I know once I am in there I will feel better and it will help reduce the stress I have been feeling today, Looking forward to letting you all know the result of my wi tomorrow. Much Love Gems. 😀 

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 😀
