No change this week

Although that should not come as a shock, since on Sunday I was taken to n all-u-can-eat chinese.... and boy was it good! And wasn't I naughty!!!

If anything I actually am shocked. Shocked that I haven't had a GAIN! Although my excerise has stepped up a little bit; I've stared staking my Avon books out again, which means about half to three quaters of an hour walking added onto my week. And I live in a VERY hilly area!

The rest of the month does not bode well though. For the next 3 sunday I have birthdays to attend... and in just over a week... a wedding dress fitting!!!!!

So I am having to be extra strict with food for the other 6 days of the week. I have picked up a magazine with GI stuff in. I'm not knocking WW on the head, no way, but I am going to blend WW with Rosemary Conley (RC) GI stuff too. Which means, having GI meals that fit into my WW Points. Or, to put it another way, not just the right portions, the right, filling foods too.

For example this morning, ionstead of my usual cerial (healthy, fiber filled stuff that is it) I've had a GI fruit salad, which is a satsuma, an apple, 25g of grapes, 15g oats and 2 spoons of virtually fat free yogurt. Very nice, very filling, counts towards my 5-a-day, has fiber, has dairy, looks like LOADS in a dish, and took better part of 7 mins to eat, rather than 2 for my cerial.

All for just 2.5 points!

Impressed!

And get this, this is lunch: 2 low fat grilled sausages, 1 slice wholegrain bread, tin of tomatoes (blended and cooked to resemble soup) and some fruit. (total 3.5 points)

Dinner: Chicken, leek and Potatoe pie (5 points)

Snacks: An actimel (which I have anyway, usually as part of breakfast, 1.5 points), and 8 cherry toms (0 points)

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
