Eurghh hate feeling sick, and some reviews!

So I woke up in the middle of the night.. 2am to be precise feeling really hot and sick, and then this morning the same thing I thought I was starting to feel better earlier on but now I feel dire again so I may have to take myself off for a nap in a bit to see if I can feel a little better. I found these new weightwatchers ready meals whilst browsing in Morrison’s today they are called weight watchers select and they are on a trial offer of £2 each at the moment so I bought one to see what they are like… 

New ww meal 12pp.

It is really yummy and well worth 12pp, I can’t remember what the other were sorry when I go in next I will write a list and the pp values for you all.. I vaguely recall one with salmon and linguine lol! I have been really hungry today despite not feeling well as you will see from my menu today:

Breakfast: Weightwatchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 1 mashed banana 0pp, 10g sesame seed paste (This is really yummy and is just like peanut butter but made 100% of sesame seeds!) 2pp, 10g Dark choc drops 1pp. 

Lunch: Subway 6″ turkey and ham on wheat with green peppers and red onions 7pp, 15g sweet onion sauce 1pp.

 Dinner: The new weight watchers select ready meal above, Butternut squash and mozzarella risotto 12pp.

Snacks:2 Packs of whisps 5pp (Found these in the £ shop today, bargain at under 100 cals each they work out at 3pp per pack, 5pp per two packs) 1 Tasty little numbers bar dark chocolate 3pp (These are wafers covered in dark, white or milk chocolate I bought them at the food festival the other day 6 bars for £1.50!! Bargain.. They all work out at 3pp each and they are all exactly 100 calories each! 

All 3pp each! 🙂

 

New crisps 3pp per pack 🙂

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 😀 

Quick one tonight!

Knackered tonight after taking Cia for another long walk today, Have walked almost 8 miles again today! Feel so much more in control today like yesterday definitely think am going to use all my weeklies on the weekends now so I don’t have to feel out of control later in the week. 

My menu today was:

Breakfast: 35g Hot oat cereal 3pp, 120ml Skimmed milk 1pp and 50g Frozen mixed berries 0pp.

Lunch: Weight watchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 4 slices garlic sausage 2pp, 1 dairy lea light triangle 1pp, 1 small salad pepper sliced 0pp and 20g light salad cream 1pp. Cherry tomatoes and baby cucumbers 0pp.

Dinner: Left over sauce from sausage casserole on Sunday 3pp, 35g cous cous 2pp.

Snacks: Yoo Moo angelmoo frozen yoghurt 4pp, 2 Maria biscuits 1pp.

Total used 21/26pp 

Promise to write a longer more enthralling post tomorrow! Much love Gems 😀 

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 😀
