I’ve been busy today making preparations for my next session with Slimming World.
I have also put into operation Plan B for snacking.
I went into a charity shop today and purchased a glass fruit bowl which is now sitting on the coffee table in the lounge. I also bought a single pear and apple, plus bananas, grapes, blueberries and raspberries, the latter two in the fridge ready to go on my cereal in the mornings.
I was going to make a McCheese for Hubby today and have tomato bake myself, then thought better of it because of the amount of cheese topping. When we were in the cottage and also on the boat, I used to make a pasta dish with just tomatoes and onions with a little bit of garlic and italian herbs. This was all done in two pans on the hob, so I’m going to revert back to cooking that. Hubby didn’t fancy McCheese afterall so we bought a frozen curry for him today instead.
I cooked my pasta as usual, then in a separate pan put 2 chopped tomatoes, a chopped onion, clove of garlic, italian herbs, sliced carrot and green beans with a little water and a stock cube. In the past I’ve added mushrooms and peppers and even sliced up a cucumber which was surprisingly tasty in the mix!
There are different shaped and coloured pastas available so I can ring the changes for dishes like this. If I’m correct as SW has changed quite a bit in their literature and syn values, other than the stock cube, this is a syn free meal.
This afternoon, I looked up group meetings local to me and have a choice of several.
I’ve opted for an early evening class on a Monday half a mile away, so on a nice day I could walk. Being a Bank Holiday weekend, I rang the consultant and asked if she was holding a class on Monday. She said it was class as usual and sounded very nice, aka young!
As I intend to sign up for 12 weeks, I won’t have to pay a registration fee, I only pay for 10, and I’m entitled to the over 60s discount.
I’m going to give it my best shot and if I’m not making progress at the end of three months, then I shall have to think again.
As before, I will plot my results, no cheating, warts and all.
