Good morning. Weigh in this morning and I don't hold out much hope for anything but a maintain really but that's OK, a maintain is fine and I will be very happy with that.
I've been exercising a lot this week and, as they say, muscle is heavier than fat. In other words, you can lose fat, tone up considerably, and still not lose weight because of the muscle development.
I've tried very hard to keep my calories at around 1200 to 1,300, giving me a calories deficit of around 500 each day apart from last Friday. I'm not happy to go much lower than that, generally speaking, although the occasional much lower day wouldn't do any harm.
No easier dinner today as I'm off to a wedding tomorrow and, although I am the designated driver and thus off alcohol, there are bound to be a few goodies I won't say no to. So tomorrow evening will be my easier meal.
(Easy means not so focused on syns/calories and if they go over, so be it. It doesn't necessarily mean simple)
Also, I didn't use the yogurt and chutney dip, I had some apple and sultana chutney. Delicious.
And I was stuffed!!
Later on, I had a couple of pears from the allotment. They were nice but still rather too hard.
SW: one healthy extra B for the oats/flour, I will use natural yogurt with some raspberry skinny syrup and up to one and a half syns for a tbsp chocolate sauce
One of my packs of Aldi, sushi from the freezer plus a nice, big salad. Lovely
This is definitely a treat, if not an 'easier' meal. Here's the recipe:
