What I loved about this week was the variety of food that I have eaten. I would definitely say I have eaten more food than I normally would - but more of the good stuff. A typical day has been:
* Banana, yoghurt and bran flakes for breakfast
* Tuna pasta salad for dinner with an apple or tangerines
* Chicken stir fry with noodles and loads of super speedy veg
In between I have been snacking on fruit and drinking coffee and tea with milk from my Healthy Extra Option - put plainly, I have never gone hungry. I also managed some wine at the weekend.
|I didn't eat pasta pasta pasta every night ha ha, this is over the week|
I have also loved the fact I have been cooking every night - different foods and recipes. I made a gorgeous pasta sauce made from lots of super free veg, roasted and blended with tomatoes. It's freezable too so handy to throw over pasta - and also great to hide vegetables in sauces for the kids! If you want any recipes or anything just ask - I am happy to post any recipes that I pick up along the way!
Of course this week there were many many possible ways for me to stray - especially with it being Easter. But I recorded them on Facebook and vowed never to be assuaged in this way by all the evil people I live with:
So...what was the verdict? Well, a picture always says it best I think. A wobbly-bottom picture.
I was very chuffed. The first week of a routine-change usually shows the biggest weight loss. So next week I am looking for another 2lbs and to get to my half-a-stone.
Like I said, I will do this. Because, where there is wine, there is a way, people.
