It was sigh of relief time at SW yesterday as the scales registered a pound and a half loss. I had hoped for more and feared less so I'm happy!
I'm continuing to log everything on Nutracheck and you should have seen Jen's face when I gave her the printouts and asked if she would just check to see if I was missing anything that would slow things down! The trouble is there's no way of filtering out the elements you don't need but I pointed out the bits that were actually relevant and I had annotated it with As, Bs and syns so I hope it won't take her too long!
I bet she will laugh at me in private though! All that micro-managing!
I had slight (and semi-planned) blip later on but that's Friday for you! I managed the planned meals plus rather more. I reckon these Friday 'blips' are what's slowing things down a bit but it keeps me on track the rest of the time so it's a price I am prepared to pay.
There are so many amazing recipes and ideas around at the moment, if one is prepared to take the time to look, and I know I can fill the rest of my week with food that works within the SW structure and do keep me with a 500 calorie deficit so keeping the interest high really is not a problem.
It's lucky I enjoy cooking, isn't it?
I'll make the pancakes using freshly ground oats, a medium egg and some milk plus a bit of stevia. There's loads of ways one can flavour a batter but I fancy it simple today. I usually use yogurt in the batter but, as I don't seem to have any A choices planned for today, I will use milk instead.
This is a very simple idea from the Good Housekeeping Fast and Easy Collection. I Googled and found the recipe:
I may very well jazz up the salsa with a few additions - finely chopped cucumber and maybe some tomato flesh might be nice. I have a chilli left over from the last Hello Fresh box.
I decided on this because it was a toss up between pancakes and bacon for breakfast and I realised I could actually have both, just not at the same meal!
half a healthy extra A (so I must work in a bit more, if possible)
one healthy extra B
