Well the last didn't go so well, I had a number of naughty things that I really shouldn't have had but then I also walked 32 miles with the crazy dog so was a little bit peeved to put half a pound back on.
I know I hadn't been perfect but hoped the walking would have made up for it. At least I clung on to my shiney sticker as I have still lost half a stone.
We had the tasting night at class last week too, I didn't make a curry in the end which is a good job as someone else had, I made falafels instead. They went down really well with people asking for the recipe. They taste a bit like onion bhaji's and are syn free:
1 x red onion
1 x tin of chick peas (and a little spalsh of the water from tin)
1 x red chilli
2 x eggs
2 x tsp ground cumin
2 x tsp ground corriander
4 x garlic cloves (at least)
1/2 tsp baking powder
bing bunch fresh coriander
method - chuck it all in the food processor and blitz, either put in a dish/baking tin or shape into rounds and cook for 20 mins or so.
Dead easy and something syn free to snack on, I have them with a syn free yoghurt and mint dip.
My week after that hasn't been too great either, a very stressful week at work announcing potential redundancies coupled with bonfire night and all the goodies that come with it have lead to a few naughty bits and peices but I have also been poorly with a stomach bug so hoping that evens it all out.
Can't go to class this week so back on with being good today to see a loss next week, got another bonfire night party this saturday so need to be extra good before that. Day off work today due to car MOT meant I had time to cook a lovely breakfast of homemade hashbrown, bacon and poached eggs. yum yum yum. About to burn it off on a long rainy dog walk.
oh and the garage just called to say the car is going to cost £450 and seen as I have spent £200 on it already in the last two weeks that means I can't afford to eat anyway. Size 8 here I come!!!
Good luck to everyone else try to shift the pounds. Slowly but surely.
