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. 😀

Oh dear I may look like miss piggy after tonight!

So  this week I stayed the same as I predicted, Well this next week I will have a loss! I am using all my weeklies today, get them gone out the way won’t be tempted later in the week then. We are off out for Indian tonight and I am so looking forward to it as we haven’t been out to dinner in quite a while! I went to the food festival down the road today and there were soooo many lovely foods and smells all around me, it was very tempting.. However I had a pint of pink battle Sussex cider and some lunch then came home to crack on with this strawberry cheesecake  I said I was going to make.. Well it’s all gone wrong, the base is more gloopy, rather than crunchy think I put too much water in, and the filling well,  DO NOT buy strawberry flavouring!! It tastes nothing like strawberries at all, I was hoping to save some time but now I wish I had gone with my instinct and made it with fresh strawberry sauce instead, Luckily I had some frozen strawberries so I have quickly defrosted them in the microwave and blended them into a sauce to mix in to it, seems okay, tastes a bit better although I’m not totally sure it’s going to set properly now as the topping was runnier than I intended it to be.. Who know’s I will let you know tomorrow after I have let it set over night, I will give you the recipe another time once I have done it properly! 

So my menu today was: 

Breakfast: 1 weight watchers tortilla 3pp, spread with 15g whole earth natural peanut butter 2pp, 1 Sliced banana 0pp and 5g Dark chocolate drops 1pp.

Lunch: Chicken and noodles with a chicken satay and peanut sauce (I have estimated 17pp probably less but hey that’s the weeklies I had left after dinner tonight so may as well get em gone)

Dinner: Going out for Indian so I’m having Chicken Tikka  dry 8 pieces 14pp, Sag panner is spinach and paneer cheese I have estimated at 14pp for this I think this is being generous too as it is mostly spinach but it will have some oil in it and panner isn’t the lowest of pointed cheese lol. Plus 2 poppadums 8pp.

Snacks: None today, Although I have had a couple of pints of cider 16pp 😉 

Total used 75/26.. All 49 weeklies used!  :O 

Right I’m off as Chris will be here soon and we be off then! Much love Gems 😀
