Weigh In #8

I got my next 7lb award star! So I am super chuffed about that. It means I have lost 16lb since having Freddie, and a whacking great 3 stone since November last year.

I am now only 2 stone and 3 lb off my target weight. I am more than half way to target!

However..... this weekend we have been away (we are still away) and have not been following the diet. Breakfast for me has been cereal and a cooked breakfast like I normally have when we stay in a hotel. I did choose Special K instead of Honey Nut Cornflakes and Quorn Sausages instead of regular pork ones... and ditched the bacon all together. But it was still way more than I should have had. I also plumbed for my usual scampi and chips for our pub lunch and followed that up with another cooked meal for my dinner - although it was a "Slimming World" approved meal (my Sisters In Law do Slimming World).

They way I see it.... I have let my hair down for a weekend. For the last time before Christmas. I over indulged, but made some more sensible choices than I would have previously. I know I have some serious make up to when I get back home. I have already placed my grocery order for Monday morning... all healthy stuff! I am fully expecting a gain next weekend, but I am going to work hard to make it a stay-the-same. Now I've lost 42 lb and really really don't want to gain any of it back!

Weigh In:

  • Me: -1lb
  • Hubby: STS
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  42lb
  • I have lost 3 stone since Nov 2013!

Things I have learned this week:

  • Chocolate tastes better when I haven't had any in a week!
  • Quorn sausages and soy mince aren't as bad as I had imagined
  • My will power is only as strong as my desire not to walk to the shop in the rain. If it's available I will still cave in :(

Targets for this week:

  • Not to record a gain at my next weigh in! Serious work needed after this weekend!
  • Survive Half Term without eating the same amount of junk as a hyperactive school boy - coz I wont run it off like they do!
  • Drink more water. It's a habit which is slipping!

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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
