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 😀

Obsessed and a little annoyed!!

So I openly admit to being a little obsessed when it comes to weighing myself.. I do tend to stand on the scales more than twice a day.. A little crazy maybe but it seems to keep me on track most of the time, however yesterday and today I couldn’t seem to fathom it, why I am heavier even though I am 100% on track have not had any naughty food only the alcohol I drank on Sunday which was all within my weeklies and I have done more exercise already than last week??

I have now come to the conclusion after racking my brain over what I did differently that it is quite simple.. I haven’t had breakfast at all this week and looking back over my fitbit diary from last week I was having between 1200-1400 calories a day and this week so far yesterday I just scraped 1000, today 1100. I’m hoping that by eating breakfast for the rest of the week that this is what it is and I can bring it back because if not I am at a total loss as to what it could be! 

My menu today was: 

Breakfast: None=Bad! 

Lunch: 2 weightwatchers tortilla wraps 5pp, 6 slices Aldi garlic sausage 3pp, 40g co-op reduced fat grated cheese 3pp, sliced peppers and onions 0pp, 30g light salad cream 2pp.

Dinner: Nume Cajun spiced chicken fettucine 11pp

Snack: After c25k week 3 run 2 and a swim – Banana 0pp.

Hopefully I’ll have a loss to report this week.. come Sat! Take care all Much love Gems 😀 

Happy Bank Holiday.. :D

Hi there so had a fab day yesterday, ate all my dailies and drank most of my weeklies.. Oooppps! Oh well we only live once right?! 😉 One thing I have to tell you is do not if you are a cider drinker buy Henry Weston’s vintage cider without knowing how many pp is in a pint 20pp omg!!! Will so not be having one of those again anytime soon! So I’m starting my Ripped in 30 challenge tonight too am a little bit nervous but mostly looking forward to it, Off to the gym tomorrow too for the second run of week 3 c25k, then a 40 length swim to start training for my channel swim.. Feeling positive and in control! 

So my menu today is:

Breakfast: none got up quite late, Well what are bank holidays for eh?! 😉

Lunch: Discovery tortilla wrap 3pp, 15g light salad cream 1pp, 40g pastrami 1pp and some chopped pepper and onion 0pp.

Dinner: Morisson Nume Chilli Wedge Melt ready meal 9pp, 30g co-op reduced fat grated cheese 2pp.

Snacks: Off to Costa in a bit so instead of my normal 0pp  americano.. I may get the other half to treat me to a skinny sugar free hazelnut latte for 4pp! Banana 0pp 😉

Total used 20/26pp 

Another note I have to say is always check the nutritional values for your meals as I bought that meal I’m having for dinner tonight and it says 8pp on pack and when I worked it out with the nutritional values it was 9pp, May not seem like a lot but 1pp makes all the difference if your not counting 1 a week etc, So check, check, check!! Also weight watchers tortilla wraps are on offer for 75p in Morissons! 😀 

Enjoy the holiday!! Much love Gems 😀
