I know I didn’t win at The MADs but I’m still a winner… of herbs! A couple of weeks ago I entered a competition and I won! WOOT! I am now the proud owner of a Grow Your Own Herbs kit. After my mixed success of growing veggies this summer I’m looking forward to trying to grow herbs. As I’m getting more and more into Weight Watchers recipes having my own stash of fresh home grown herbs will be awesome! So watch this space. I’ll be starting another “How does my garden grow? The Herb addition” soon!
As today is Wednesday or “get on the scale fatty”day I’ll fill you in on my stats!
Week 16. Weight lost this week: -1.5 Weight loss in total 16.
Isn’t that awesome?? I mean I won’t lie I wish I was a faster loser- like 2 lbs a week but I’ll take the 1 lb a week. Steady. Steady. A recap of how I did this past week, here’s a screen grab. On Tuesday it was a doozy of a day with 43 pro points used! I really do struggle with going out to eat. Yes, I do have the eating out guide but it’s only helpful if I go out to the “popular” restaurants. I met a friend for lunch at the cafe in Booths and had a chicken club sandwich and chips. Now I know I should have stayed clear of the chips. Just because I know this doesn’t mean I do it. I’m weak!!
I don’t think I’ve ever used so many weekly pro points. I tend to ignore them as I don’t want to start to rely on them. I weighed in the following day and had lost 1 1/2 lbs. I’m think that 43 point day is going to come back and bite me on the ass next week. I’ll keep you posted!
I also have a recipe to share! I know me and every other blogger!! On Monday I only used 19 pro points! I didn’t set out to use so little daily points but it just worked out that way.
Breakfast was my usual porridge but after 2 spoonfuls I didn’t want any more. Then it was a mad dash to go to GP’s office, petrol station, back home for plasterer and kitchen designer. By the time I had a moment to eat anything it was almost 2. A quick sandwich for lunch and I’d only used up 5 pro points. For dinner I made a reduced fat version of a family favorite. Baked chicken w/ cream of mushroom soup. Next time I make this recipe I’ll probably skip the tin of WW cream of chicken soup. I had tons of “sauce” and because I didn’t make any rice or potatoes with the meal it went to waste.
The ingredients are
2 skinless chicken breasts (bone in)
1 tin of Morrison’s cream of mushroom soup
1 tin of WW cream of chicken soup
low cal spray
salt/pepper to taste
I think you can see the cooking instruction.
I finely sliced and sauteed some savoy cabbage as a substitution for rice or potatoes. I did miss my rice but for 0 Weight Watchers pro points the cabbage was deeeeeelish! I don’t know about you but 0 pro point foods taste so much better. I think it’s because it’s missing that side of guilt!
