Well. It’s all gone horribly wrong. In the words of a favourite meme of mine; Not only have the wheels fallen off, I have burnt down the cart and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.
I have been steadily gaining rather than losing lbs. Not due to the meals on my planner but the bloody snacking! Still, at least all of the Easter chocolate is now gone. Finally!
I am having another retinal bleed so blurry eyesight means a lot less chopping and prep and a LOT more grab and go. I am determined that I am going to push through though. In fact I need to.
The plan is to plan- and stick to it. What do you do when you feel your willpower slipping?
This week in food
Friday: My lovely Stepmum is cooking for me so MrG and the kids have pie and veg
Saturday: Nandos style butterfly chicken breast with mediterranean rice (frozen from aldi 1.5syns per portion) and salad.
Sunday: Roast Pork, honey glazed roasted parsnips and carrots with brussel sprouts and mash.
Monday: Lamb koftas with salad and flatbread
Tuesday: Sausages and chips and beans.
Wednesday: Salmon with baby sweetcorn, and green beans* and jersey royal potatoes*
Thursday: Chicken pesto pasta and pea shoot salad
*included in the Aldi super six this week. keeps the costs down
Breakfasts: Trying to keep the expenditure to a minimum because it’s half term and frankly I would rather spend the dosh on having some fun with the children. With that in mind breakfast will be mainly porridge and fruit (I have a stash of frozen sweet cherries so I can add those to my porridge)
Lunches: I am going to try to make lots of hard boiled eggs and salads this week. The weather looks well suited for it and they are easy enough to make a take on days out.
