I have been trying to give myself incentives this week by reading my earlier successful posts, SW positive quotes, and banning all the bad stuff from the shopping list.
Condensation issues apart, I have been throwing a lot of veg together in my direction, and if I’m honest, enjoying myself a little in a culinary way.
Like salad stuff though, veg gets pretty boring pretty quick, so already I am envisioning the new kitchen layout and Hubby fulfilling his promise of a microwave-cum-oven. I can then do baked things with veggies and try those SW wedges!
Sure I could’ve used the oven here, but that condensation thing with no cooker hood could be catastrophic.
Veg prices here are beginning to rocket in the shops, that is if the shelves haven’t been stripped by panic buyers in the first place. I saw a headline yesterday that someone paid £500 for an iceberg lettuce. Fool.
I have been quite content to pick up a tray of prepared cauliflower and broccoli florets for about a pound which will last me 3 days. Hopefully I will still be able to get them, as you can see by my meal photos I’ve had them a lot this week, and by tossing in a few carrots and tomatoes, I’ve had a full set of traffic lights on my plate.
Now the concept of that was good:
Labels on foods try to guide us all in the right direction, but things like fruit I prefer to buy loose so that I can select my own rather than buy a pack where there is at least one ‘iffy’ one that gets thrown out before it’s affected the others.
I’m expecting to see massive red STOP sign over the chocolate and pastries counters as some
idiot’s expert’s next idea to tackle the obesity issue.
So, after my care and committment to the cause, how did I do this week?
I lost a pound and a half, so still entitled to my 2½ stone certificate!
N got her 5½ stone tonight, and is now half a pound lighter than I am. I am so pleased for her! She is just two pounds away from her target now, whereas I still have a fair way to go.
