So not as in control as I thought.. ;)

Hey all so last night I was starving and I tried to put it out of my mind I had a drink and tried to distract myself but to no avail, I ended up munching beans on toast not too bad for a late night snack I hear you say, However I also had 2 things out of my graze box totalling 10pp also.. So all in all I used quite a few of my weeklies and I have used some today too, not many but hey that’s what they are there for! Today has been a pretty lazy day apart from popping out to Costa and Morrison’s, So I really have nothing interesting to tell you lol Sorry! I decided to have a rest day today as have exercised every day since Wed, so will be hop, skipping and jumping to the gym tomorrow instead. So my menu today has been:

Breakfast: 45g Mornflake jumbo oats 4pp, 100ml skimmed milk 1pp, 50g apple and bluberry puree 0pp. 

Lunch: Discovery garlic and herb tortilla wrap 3pp, mushrooms, onions, peppers 0pp, 15g extra light philadelphia 0pp, 15g tomato ketchup 0pp.

Snacks: Harvest vale granola crunch bars pack of 2 6pp! (Had I of known how high they were I may have had just one today) Pint bottle stella pear cidre 8pp.

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 😀
