tea and cakes (minus the cake)
Hey all, hope you've all had a pleasant weekend.
I was up ridiculously early this morning, owing to the fact I had slept for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. I think I woke up around the time it started to get lightish outside, so around 5:30am! I had a cup of green tea (I'm preferring this to bog standard tea at the moment) and then went for an early morning walk around the backstreets of Norwich, I was a bit apprehensive as I realised there wouldn't be a lot of people about and some of my route took me in small alleys but I was psyched up.
I came back and had some breakfast then played on the Sims 3 for a bit. My Sim wants to be a composer, usually I make them chefs or something but thought I'd do something a bit more creative this time! Then....F1!!! I did my usual trick and only kept one eye on it whilst I was chatting on the WW boards but it was a pretty good race, unsurprisingly Ferrari won (1-2) after Vettel had mechanical issues. Jenson didn't get podium and was 7th I think eventually.
I had some lunch and then pottered around for a bit before being picked up to go to my brothers for afternoon tea - I was armed with my green tea bags and we got there - Kat (my SIL) had laid on a spread with cakes and cookies and crisps! I could have quite easily accounted for a cupcake today but I just decided I'd feel to guilty if I did so stuck to my tea. Everyone else was telling me to have one but I stayed stoic! Even Mum commented that I seem really determined this time which really helped me stay focused.
We stayed there for a good couple of hours and then I came back and cooked my dinner - chicken salad as I wasn't that hungry and really fancied a salad. So here I am, armed with another green tea and some squash typing away! I'll probably go upstairs to read for a bit in a short while as I'm pretty shattered. But first, yesterdays breakdown (the boring bit):
Breakfast: 2 slices of wholemeal bread - 2.5pts, 3 bacon medallions - 1.5pts, 2 tbsp of ketchup - 0.5pts = 4.5pts
Lunch: Prawns - 2pts, LF Mayo - 1.5pts, pitta bread - 3pts and cup of minestrone slim and soup -1pt = 7.5pts
Dinner: 3 extra lean sausages (Sainsburys, and very nice!) - 3.5pts, potatoes - 4pts, reduced salt/sugar beans - 2pts, tomato ketchup - 0.5pts and WW Chocolate Swirl Pot - 1.5pts = 11.5pts
Snacks: 1 Pink n White - 0.5pts
TOTAL: 24pts/27pts (no exercise today)
I'll do todays breakdown tomorrow, even though I'm done for the day. I also saw my bridesmaid dress for my brother and SIL's wedding - I wanted to try it on but was told to wait a couple of months so it can be altered! I'm determined to not look as chubby when they get married! :o)
Anyway, I'm going to finish this cuppa, have a poke around the WW forums and go to read upstairs.
Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there, and a big huge hug and kiss for my wonderful Mummy who I love so so much xxx
Happy Slimming =)
