Feeling rubbish! πŸ˜”

Hey everyone, just a quick one today. After my hospital appointment on Monday that I mentioned in my previous post, the doctors told me I didn’t suffer a miscarriage but in fact have an ectopic pregnancy ! πŸ˜”
I didn’t know what to think, and it all went so fast as they wanted to operate but because I have had previous abdominal ops from when I was born I am classed as high risk so they went fine the alternative route of giving me an injection called Methotrexate

You can read about it here if your interested at all.
The long and short of it is that this drug is making me feel quite ill, I’ve been sick and I have no appetite hence why I won’t be on track this week, as it’s just another thing on my mind to worry about. I’m hoping that this goes as smoothly as possible but knowing me it probably won’t!
Anyhow I may come on and have a little rant about how I’m feeling again this week, but things will resume normal order soon as they can, I promise more reviews and recipes when I can!

Have a good ww week peeps, onwards and downwards!
Much love Gems xxx

Ta daaa!!

Amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it! I’ve got my 5% this week but I lost a pp, boo!! I plan to do just as well this week too!
Happy Monday peeps, enjoy a fab week on track with me.
I plan on staying on track again this week although I have to go back to the hospital today for more tests as my blood tests from the hospital yesterday show the hcg pregnancy hormone has risen so now they are concerned that maybe it’s an ectopic pregnancy not a miscarriage as first suspected! πŸ˜” I’m trying for positive thinking but I just wish it was all over now.
So depending in how that goes today I may be using a few weeklies on a nice hot chocolate with marshmallows later from Starbucks! 😜

Much love

Weigh in tomorrow!

Hello all, I’ve had a great week on track, scales are being kind to me so far even after going out to Chinese for dinner last night!! πŸ˜‰ I had This for dinner the other day and it was totally … Continue reading

Cheese cake was a disaster, Dinner was lovely though!!

So the cheesecake base did not firm up, in all the years I have been baking I have never had a disaster quite like this one, when I tried to slice it and put it on the plate it was just one big gloopy mess! Still tastes okay though and I won’t be wasting it.. I cannot stand throwing food away!! Worked it out at 4pp per slice so not too bad, I will however be trying this again next week and posting decent pics and the recipe. Last night we ended up going to Strada (Italian) instead of the Indian we had planned, I’m actually quite pleased we did because in hindsight I probably would have overeaten and then felt ill today.. So I had no starter, just a main which wasΒ Pumpkin and butternut squash risotto with pancetta, wilted spinach and pine nuts. It was very yummy and I did not feel like I had eaten too much, I had a diet coke with my meal, I don’t drink fizzy too often so I was happy to have a diet coke. I also instead of having dessert decided to have an espresso, so when I got home and re pointed it all it turned out I had 17 weeklies left! I was sure I would use them today but as you will see from my menu I haven’t even used all my dailies :O So if the weeklies don’t get used tomorrow then they wont be being used at all!! Today we went for a walk down the beach as it was a gorgeous Indian summers day.. Well for part of the day anyway now it looks like it’s going to storm, typical British weather.. Anyway down on the front today they had the motorbike show they have every year and there were some beasts, however this one is the one that caught my eye..Β 

What a beauty!!

After our wander looking at the bikes, trikes and scooters we went for a drink before the weather turned and I had Jeremiah Weed root brew, it’s yummy ginger style root beer from Kentucky I have had both this one and their sour mash brew before, I prefer the Sour mash brew one but they had run out where we went. The one thing that annoys me as a weight watcher is there is never any nutritional information on bottles of alcohol.. So I have Googled it and the only thing I can find is that they both are 120 calories for 500ml?! That can’t be right surely!! I have no taken it upon myself to email the company and ask them for the nutritional info for both bottles so I can safely propoint it without having to guestimate!!Β 

So my menu today was:Β 

Breakfast: None, we didn’t actually get out of bed till 11:30am.. So it seemed like the most sensible idea was to wait for lunch.

Lunch: 1 weightwatchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 40g wafer thin turkey 1pp, 75g Nume piri piri chicken sandwich filler 2pp (The tikka one is the best!), 1 mini pepper sliced 0pp, 1 mushroom sliced 0pp.

Dinner: 50g cous cous 2pp, 1 pack Bernard Matthews tikka turkey chunks 3pp, handful fresh chopped parsley 0pp, 1 tbsp lime juice 0pp, 1 mini pepper sliced 0pp, 2 mushrooms sliced 0pp.Β 

Snacks: 1 slice of gloopy strawberry cheesecake 4pp, 1 bottle Jeremiah weed which I am pro pointing as 6 for now as I’d rather over point than under point.Β 

Total used 21/26, 0 weeklies used.Β 

5pp dinner!!

So that’s me for today, tomorrow I start my Aspire swim the channel challenge..
