3.6lbs down this week! My belly is back to being a tummy! I'm also down 1 inch on my waist and round my rib cage (I've always had a big layer of fat there so seeing that part shrink makes me very happy!) Not sure how well next week will go - I'm back at work so will be surrounded by tempting unhealthy foods all day! This weekend was a bit of a struggle to stick to the no sugar, no dairy, no wheat... no alcohol *cough* I may have had a couple of glasses on Friday and another in Saturday! I decided that I'd have one since... I quite fancied it really. I don't drink much, I don't have a glass of wine with dinner in the evenings, I don't binge drink on the weekends, I only have the odd drink now and again at home and on nights out I only go overboard occasionally. Cutting out alcohol isn't really going to make any difference to my weight, I just don't have enough for there to be a significant impact.

I have spent the weekend craving tempura prawns, pizza, Nando's chicken and chips, Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter, nacho's with lots of cheese, brie and grapes, chocolate... it's just that weekend thing I think.

I've fallen a bit behind with posting my food so here's another catch up:

Thursday -

Breakfast: More museli with rice milk

Snack: Trek cherry crunch flapjack

Lunch: 2 Ryvita with chicken, rocket, cherry tomatoes and a small avocado wrapped in parma ham - it was supposed to all go on the ryvita but it was a bit much! Excuse the old dry chicken!

Snack: Another Trek flapjack - I ate them without even thinking to check the ingredients or without it dawning on me that there's sugar in them! Nevermind, it's a flapjack, not a giant bar of chocolate or anything... I also had a plain rice cake spread with Marmite before dinner.

Dinner: Lemon chicken wrapped in parma ham with mange tout, baby corn, green beans and sweet potato wedges

Snack: Dried mango

Friday -

Breakfast: Last of my museli with soya milk, stevia and vanilla extract to try and mask the taste of the soya milk - it was the only milk I had left!

Snack: Costa Coffee latte with maple spice syrup - yeah more sugar, I know!

Lunch: I was home later than expected and only had about 15 mins before heading back out to the hairdresser so just had a large juice with 3 apples, 3 carrots, 1 lemon, big chunk of ginger, a mango and 1tsp Superfood powder from My Protein

Snack: Chicken breast smothered in Nando's sauce and 1 tsp almond butter

Dinner: Chicken and mushroom risotto and a glass of wine and a glass of cava

Saturday -

Breakfast: Green monster smoothie - soya milk, banana, spinach, spirulina, superfood powder, maca and agave nectar, and a half tsp of coconut butter while I blended!

Lunch: Lunch was a bit difficult as we were in a place that seemed to have 2 choices - McDonalds, or pie. So we went to the supermarket and I had a cooked chicken breast and two ryvita with houmous and a diet coke

Snack: Trek Peanut and oat bar

Dinner: Lemon and black pepper chicken with baby corn, green pepper and new potato wedges - my boyfriend is too good at making these and I couldn't resist having a big pile of them! I ended up pulling my chicken apart and drowning in Nando's sauce... I think I have a problem.

Snack: Trek cocoa brownie bar and a glass of cava. These bars are dangerous but coming in very handy when there is crisps and chocolate in the house, I'd rather over-do it with the Nakd and Trek bars than with easter eggs.

No real exercise this week (as in going to the gym or running) but plenty of walking! Including trekking (see I deserved the Trek bars ;) )over fields and a bit of climbing on Saturday so I could take photos of the amazing looking cliffs!

  1. Well done and yay to your lbs loss! Food looks so yummy, I try to cut sugar out of most of my food but its so hard! Not today though I'm on a hangover sugar bender! x x

  2. Congrats on your loss! I'm going to have to try out this nandos sauce, its sounds yummy. I keep seeing it at sainsbos and thinking about getting some. I love hallomi as well and I know you've had it with that before too x

    Thanks Angel! I adore Nando's sauce! My boyfriend doesn't really get what the big deal is though. And yes it goes very well with halloumi!

    Thanks Tamzin! I hope to keep sugar out after the two weeks is up with the exception of the odd treat, or if I'm hungover!
