Weight Watchers weigh in tonight did not go well. Or rather, my debauchery over the weekend was expensive and I put on 1.5 pounds which I am disappointed about and cross with myself about. I came home and had one of those moments all dieters face, some more frequently than others. Shall I stuff my face to get over my failing or strengthen my resolve. I decided to be better then ever and had a light supper. So I am down but not out. Or up but not giving in.
Our day of positive thinking started early. Despite the lightest of snow coverings, a certain someone raced outside to make a snowball and managed it.
Breakfast was 8 points:
40 g oats = 4
200 ml almond milk = 2
15 g almond butter = 3
Lunch was 14 points:
1 chicken breast = 4
1 tbsp olive oil = 4
1 falafel = 4
1 medium corn on the cob = 2
It was delicious, stir fried with Benenden Sauce which I am loving and some chilli flakes as I fancied something spicy after a cold walk. The falafel crumbled to make the meal seem more bulky than yesterdays version and the cavolo nero with the Benenden Sauce in particular tasted wonderful. This will be repeated.
Supper was 11 points:
half a tub of Tideford’s Italian Tomato and Red Lentil Soup = 2
30 g Cheddar = 3
50 g Stilton = 6
I stirred the cheese in to the soup which makes it tasty and more substantial.
I also had milk in tea which was 2 points and I earned 5 activity points from 1 hours walking. I also snacked on 2 apples. So a healthy day which is a successful day.
I am proud of you for not throwing in the towel on all your hard work since the start of the year. 1.5 pounds can easily be gained or lost in one day depending on what you ate and if there was sodium involved, it can easily be water weight you had today. Stick with it Zoe. Persistence pays off!
Thank you Laura. I always appreciate your support.
