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 😀 

Oh what a beautiful day.. And a Recipe! :D

Good morning, Good mornnniiiinng! Well I feel fantastic this morning got up at 7:30 am and took myself off to the gym.. Hard going running when you haven’t done it for a couple of weeks but I did it, I pushed through even though it felt like I was going to die lol and I feel fantastic for it, so glad I went!! Tomorrow I am starting the Jillian Michaels dvd ripped in 30 3-4 times a week so hoping that will help me tone up whilst continuing my running and swimming!
