Hi,

a bit. So here goes!!

Is anyone out there? If so feel free to say hi! :D

I have been the Queen of Superfree today, loads of fruit and veg and despite it being my piggy week (the week before * week) where I want to eat everything in sight, not a morsel of my leftover (Giant) Easter Egg has passed my lips!! :angeldevil:

I have been thinking what made me go off track, I think it was lack of variety, last time when I restarted we were pretty much eating the same thing over and over. On my break I have discovered a love affair with Papa Johns :mad:, discovered that I LOVE balsamic vinegar (which is free), especially over SW wedges and that I LOVE Greek food! I have been loosely following SW but more and more bad things (pizza, Bulmers, rosé wine) have been creeping into my diet and so has my weight :(

Oh & Hubby & I have decided we do want to have another baby at some point to complete our family so I would like to get down to target before/during then :)

Anyway I am back and ready for action!! If anyone would like to pop along from time to time and say hello to keep me motivated, feel free!! :D:D

Hi Sara,

I'll pop along and say hello! I'm 'green' too and enjoy looking at other peoples diaries (nosey mare that I am). It sounds as though you've got straight back into the swing of things and are doing a great job. Your pics look good - so colourful and virtuous! I must try that sweet chilli philly at some point, have heard lots of good things about it.

Keep up the good work and good luck resisting the Papa John's. Proper pizza is one of those things that I really miss, haven't had one in over a year but I suppose it's all for the greater good x

Hi Beegee,

Thanks for stopping by! :D At least I know I won't get the cyber people in white coats coming to take me away now for talking to myself :bliss:

Feel free to have a look through my old diaries below, I started SW in November 2009 and pretty much kept a diary every day for a year and then until early this year until I got fed up!

I am resisting Papa Johns at the moment, Hubby isn't happy though as he was starting to enjoy them, mind you he has lost (and kept off) a stone and a half since we started SW, he must have a much faster metabolism than me as I only have to look at something for it to put weight on me!!

I have decided on a lazy tea tonight as Hubby is working late and should be home in the next half hour or so, so its SW Wedges, Quorn Nuggets, Cheese and Beans for tea, with Balsamic Vinegar over the Wedges :D

I will come and have a look at your diary too as I am always looking for new meal ideas!

Woop woop, it is finally payday today!! Last month seems to have gone so slowly and thanks to our early summer and me "cleverly" throwing away all my summer clothes a few months ago (they were all old and needed updating!), I have 2 outfits which I can wear if it is nice so I am off to Liverpool City Centre after work to pick me up some nice summery togs!! My Little lady also seems to have finally moved up a size in some of her clothes (she is 28 months but is only in 12-18m clothes) but she seems to have shot up lately so I am going to pick up a few bits for her! Talking of the little one, I have been buying her a Fudge Bar a few times and she does enjoy chocolate but she would much rather pick at a bowl of fruit! I said to her this morning if she is good for Grandad today I would get her some strawberries which I have so she can have them after her tea tonight!!

I may take pics of me in my new clothes tonight if I manage to buy anything!


Ok I had planned on asking Hubby to make a Greek Meze for tea (it's his turn!) but he is out at band practice so I got to the point where after putting the little lady to bed, I started with the shakes due to no food so I have just made a quick tea and I feel so much better!

Hiya!

I got 2 maxi dresses, 2 pairs of 3/4 length leggings, 2 vest tops, a 3/4 tunic top thing and 2 other tops all for the grand total of £70!! 2 of the tops were reduced to £5.40 each in Debenhams and the rest I got from Peacocks, I never spend much on myself unless I am going somewhere special but can spend money on my daughter without thinking!! I got her 3 pairs of shorts, 3 tops, 3 dresses and a summery outfit, eeek!

I might get Hubby to take photo's of me in some of the outfits tomorrow and if I am brave enough I may u/l them hehe!!

What isn't a good idea when you are slimming? To order freshly made cupcakes perhaps? Ermmm...... see the attached pictures!!!


There is a lady who lives near us who does the most amazing cupcakes, I had some made for Hubby's 30th birthday last week and they were absolutely divine!! Hopefully Hubby and the little lady will polish most of them off but I have found that a chocolate cupcake is 10.5 syns so I will assume that these are the same?

I'm okay. Having a few life stresses at the mo, with uni and everything so slimming seems to be on hold atm. Still haven't got to target but hey ho :4633: One day..

The buns are fine :) we had to take them away with is on the weekend and they were so well behaved :)



Glad to hear your little miss is doing well! and good luck TTC soon :D

Ahh bless them, they are sooo adorable!! I have my friend's Hen Party in 9 weeks so I want to try and shift this 12lb and get down to target before then, we will see!

Have you decided to take a 6 month break from Uni? Have you found a house/flat closer to home too? Hope it all goes well for you.

Little lady is very funny, she is only 28 months but already back chats us, she has a really short temper too, the wonder of the terrible 2's!!

Hi!!

The wedding was amazing, her dress was just beautiful and they make such a cute couple. Prince Harry makes me laugh too, he's such a cheeky one!

Hi Ronnie, glad to hear I could be of help and thanks for stopping by! :) I LOVE crackerbreads, I think they're really nice and they're filling too which is good! I eat cherry tomatoes like sweets, I have a large punnet on my desk in work and sit picking at them throughout the afternoon, people think I am weird but hey ho!!

If you haven't already, take a look at my old diaries on the links below as I did SW for over a year before I fell off the wagon!! There are lots of different ideas on there!

We're going to have a BBQ tonight and I'm just going to have the burgers and sausages with a bit of sauce, I am off to polish my halo!! :p

I have just done our online shop for the next week, for those who order from Asda who haven't yet done the Asda Price Guarantee, I well recommend it, we have got vouchers back from them for the total of £8 in the past few weeks, better in our pockets than theirs I think!!

Anyway, I have planned meals from Monday onwards and a picnic for the BSB race on Monday!! Here are the plans below:

Lunch Ideas

Picnic for Monday - Wholemeal Buns with Low Low and Onion, Frazzle crisps, Alpen Lights, Fruit, Pasta n Sauce, Cous Cous

Salad with Quorn Fillets
Crackerbreads with Sweet Chilli Philly
Leftovers!

Tea Ideas

Roast with Quorn fillets, Veg, Aunt Bessie's Homebake Yorkshires and Gravy

Quorn Peppered Steaks, Giant Mushrooms stuffed with Philly Light, Poached Eggs

Mushy Pea Curry & Rice

Strozzapretti Pasta (which has quickly become a favourite in our household, yummm!)

Quorn Burger in bun, SW wedges and salad

Quorn Shepherds Pie

Quorn fajitas with refried beans and mexican rice

Quite a Green based week but I am happy with that as it is * week next week and I will be craving carbs!

Let me know what you think!
