No new pictures this week as our meals have been the same old favourites, though I’ve only had one egg (my first in three weeks) and have been packing my plate out with veg.
The sheets we fill in weekly are returned to us at a later date, something that didn’t happen before, and I’ve been taking the comments on board. I still complete them, but don’t have to hand them in now, but they are a good tool for keeping on track.
Basically I’m doing great and getting the most out of my meals, understanding about speed and free foods, though perhaps my A and B healthy extras could be more varied.
I thought about this.
At the moment, it’s 2 As and 1 B, the As being calcium rich (milk and cheese) and the Bs being high in fibre.
My basic is 350ml of skimmed milk which is plenty for my cereal and cups of tea/coffee during the day, and my B usually 60g of dried apricots. Sometimes I will swap that for 2 slices of wholemeal bread (400g loaf), 40g porridge oats (OK, only once) or 2 Hi-fi bars.
I don’t have 2 A options every day, but if I have a second it would usually be 30g of cheese, which is sufficient for topping my pasta bake or having with an apple or synned crackers.
However, if I change my B option, I can expect to stall in the digestion stakes or tickle the scales the wrong way.
When Maggie was finicky about her food, our vet said that once we found something that worked, to stick with it. Guess my standard A and B options will continue as they are then.
I anticipate another sock gain, and if so, will be ignoring my Target status and keeping strictly to plan until I’ve lost it. Target members have a three pound fluctuation either side and aren’t expected to attend group every week. As long as they attend at least one every couple of months, their membership remains valid. If you slip outside of your target range, you have a week’s grace to get back into it or you start to pay again.
I have a theory that those at target attend every five weeks or so, but in the interim, eat well and not necessarily to plan, extras or otherwise. Then when they’re due to attend, they go back on plan the week before in the hope of losing anything gained!
To be honest if it works, that appeals to me………… a lot!
