step by step!
For anybody born in the 1980's (providing it wasn't the last three years), you should just about remember the wonder of New Kids on the Block. I remember my Auntie buying me an annual and a cassette for my birthday which I wore out.
We bought Just Dance today on the Wii - it's great fun, but ultimately quite disappointing - there isn't a career mode and it's obviously just a game to play with friends, but we only have two controllers, and none of our friends have Wii's! Anyway, there is a song by the above called Step By Step which I've been binging on via Spotify, because it reminds me of being a kid :o)
Anyway, Rob was over last night and we spent the day together today. I find it hard and easy in equal measures when I have someone round (Mum, brother & SIL, friends etc) - if I can plan ahead (which I do most of the time) it's okay as I can incorporate meals into the daily routine. But sometimes said friends and family eat food that is tempting (Rob for instance, ate cheese this morning, my massive love) and I find it hard. So far I've resisted even the smallest amount of cheese. *\o/*
Anyway, I feel again like I've eaten tonnes. I keep checking and rechecking to make sure I'm not going over my points as dinner in particular was h-u-g-e. Anyway, here is a breakdown of today:
Breakfast: 1 slice of wholemeal toast (with no spread) - 1pt, 1/4 pint of skimmed milk - 0.5pts and two mikado chocolate sticks - 0.5pts = 2pts
Lunch: chicken, grilled - 3pts, honey and mustard dressing - 0.5pts, lettuce, tomato and onion - 0pts, WW pitta bread - 1.5pts, WW Banoffee dessert - 3pts = 8pts
Dinner: extra lean steak mince - 4.5pts, potatoes made into wedges and baked in oven - 4pts, tomato & chilli sauce - 1.5pts, tomato ketchup - 0.5pts, fry light - 0.5pt (I didn't spray that much, but I just prefer to point in case), 1 snack a jack - 1pt = 12pts
Anytime: Pink n White - 0.5pts
TOTAL: 23pts/28pts (banked 3 for tomorrow)
Activity - about half an hour on the Wii and a bit of walking.
I did take a picture of my dinner, plus some full length photos of me; ergh. I don't look so bad from the front but from the side I look positively pregnant.
Anyway, weigh in tomorrow, at 10:30am. Then I have the Sky man coming (I ordered Sky, heh) and I can plan food for the next week ahead :o)
Hope you've all had a good day.
Happy slimming =)
