Friday Meals 1

WI in the morning and it’s looking like another small loss – fingers crossed that nothing changes that overnight!

Although tea doesn’t look that appetising it was actually nice.  My kitchen is in the middle of getting decorated and everything is all over the place and so I couldn’t find my spatula to make sure that the omelette didn’t stick neutral which is why my omelette looks more like burnt scrambled eggs lol and my omelette pan needs replacing sad

Daily Menu – Tuesday

Tuesday Meals 1

Note to self: when planning on having chicken fajitas it’s a good idea to add the full ingredients AKA Old el Paso cooking sauce to your shopping list!

Those of you who know me know that I always plan my meals a week in advance and I make my shopping list from these meals and stick rigidly (well the majority of the time wink ) to the list, so why did I not add the sauce that I always use?  Oh well I’ve saved myself an extra pp today which means that I can either have a hot chocolate or a frothy milky coffee 😀

Anyway I ended up raiding my cupboard and I came up with something that wasn’t too bad (just chucked a little bit of everything in the picture – including 1 tsp of olive oil) into a jug, mixed it altogether and marinaded the chicken, onion and peppers for about 10 minutes). I would’ve liked it a bit more spicy but my son doesn’t like too much spice.

Daily Menu – Sunday

Sunday Meals 1

Can’t believe I actually managed to have a lie in this morning – a proper one!  I normally wake anywhere between 5.00am and 6.30am, very occasionally 7.00am but today I woke at 8.15am eek  Now as lovely as this was (and I obviously needed it), it put me back for the rest of the day – I felt I’ve been playing catch-up to get all my usual Sunday jobs done and of course this took its toll on my back too.  

I’m finding that I’m having to take more painkillers and more often. I didn’t used to need them everyday and when I did need them I would only need to take 1 or 2 per day, but I’m finding that I’m having to take them everyday and needing to take 4 or 5 – I know it’s still a way off the maximum of 8 per day, but with my liver problems I would prefer it if I didn’t have to increase it for a good few years yet. neutral

Saturday Meals 1

Have had a fab day today.  Firstly I lost 2lbs this week 😀 That means that all my Christmas gain is now gone and I am at my lowest weight on my journey 🙂

I also had a great NSV – I have managed to fit into size 12 jeans 😀  I never ever thought that I would be able to do that because of my lymphoedema/lipoedema.  They are from Marisota (“fat” shop), but as someone else said to me today they are still a size 12 and I am dead chuffed with it 😀 as didn’t think I would be able to fit in a size 12 – fat shop or not!  I can feel another shopping trip coming on lol 

Below is a pic of me holding my old size 24 jeans (also purchased from that same online shop) and also in my new jeans.  Forgive the creases in them but they have been screwed up in the bottom of my wardrobe redface

Jeans comparison

I’m also claiming another NSV today.  I’m sort of celebrating Chinese New Year with a low fat Chinese ready meal.  I had also bought some M&S Barbecue Ribs (not low fat!), without checking what their pps would be and was going to share these with my son, however I worked out that the pps would be 14pp – for half the pack! eek So I decided on having 2 duck rolls that were in the freezer instead which worked out at 3pp for the 2 of them.  Pre WW, I would have had a full Chinese with a full portion of barbecue ribs and wouldn’t have thought twice about it 🙂
