Well, I am keeping this on my computer but thought putting it on here would help me stick to it!! Hopefully! I have an allowance of 20 points a day.

I tend to cook and point my own stir fries and things a lot so if anyone wants the recipe for anything I mention just ask and I will happily add it!

Here goes....:eek:

Breakfast:
I small tin spaghetti hoops - 2
1 slice white bread - 1.5
Skimmed milk for day - 1

Lunch:
No point soup - 0
Slice of bread - 1.5
100g grapes - 1
100g LF yoghurt - 1

Dinner:
Cashew nut chicken stirfry - 4
60g rice - 3

Total today: 15

I will probably have something sweet in a bit but haven't decided what yet.

Went for 2 thornton's chocolates (4)

Exercise today: 15 mins core training on the Wii and a fitness test on the Wii that was horrendous and involved a lot of press ups, squats and crunches.:cry:

Ugh, felt rubbish today. Meant to be revising but still battling cold and feel really tired and mngh.

Still, here is today's menu plan:

Breakfast:
100g grapes (1)
100g LF yoghurt (1)
Milk for tea (1)

Lunch:
1 slice toast (1.5)
Small tin spaghetti hoops (2)
Poached egg (large) (2)

Dinner:
Lemon and oregano pork (3)
200g New potatoes (2)
Carrots, brocolli, green beans (0)
2 Thorntons Chocolates (4)

Total: 17.5

Ideally I'd like to save the 2.5 points for a takeaway on Friday but the way I'm feeling today I may ditch the chocolates and have a 100g Ben and Jerry's for 6 points instead. Still brings me in at 19.5 so I'll see how I feel.

Exercise today: 15 minutes cardio on Wii Fitness Coach. Man, she is one bossy virtual trainer!

Its really quite good you can track all your measurements etc and set targets to tone up different areas of the body.

You can pick your work out length: 15, 30, 45, 60 mins and choose from Cardio, Upper Body, Lower Body, Core and Yoga I think... It also has the option to use stability ball, step, weights etc.

Its a really good little program - just wish she weren't so bloody bossy with it!! She tries to be "encouraging" quite a lot! :-D

I've got a couple of other fitness programs for the Wii - so if you're thinking of getting one I can try and give you some info on the one's I have if that would help?!

Here is today's diary:

Breakfast - nothing, got up late!

Lunch:
Pinto bean chilli and salad at Chilangos (plain lettuce, cooked peppers, tomato, red onion and coriander salsa) (5)

- took a bit of a guess at this to be honest but website says they don't do the beans in oil so can't be too far off....

Dinner:

Spicy prawn spaghetti (5)
Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream (6)

Milk for tea (1)

Thats a total of 17 points with 3 points carried over to tomorrow for takeaway!! :D

Today's nibblings:

Breakfast: none, was doing a freelance photography job so was at work at 8am.

Lunch:
Boots Shapers wrap (4)
Boots melon and strawberry fruit pack (0.5)
Shapers ginger beer (0)
Milk for tea (1)

Dinner:

I think we are having a takeaway tonight so here are my plans for various options, I have 20.5 points including carried over from other days:

Chinese - Chicken Chow Mein (7.5) + 1 spring roll (5)
Indian - 1/2 tandoori chicken and boiled rice (12.5)
Pizza Hut - Medium thin crust veggie supreme - this is usually 21.5 but I'm going to go for 1/2 cheese which should bring it to my limit!


I'm feeling great after losing three lb this week and hoping if I can show myself I can have sensible takeway then that will help me stick with it - been really helpful planning in advance as now I won't be swayed by the menu as much!!

yummmmmyyy.. spicy prawn spag sounds lush!!, it's so great you can find a take away that fits in with your diet, i need to do some research for emergencies like last night when I was tired and grumpy from work and needed a takeaway fix..... donna meat chips and garlic sauce was probs not the best option :( :( your doing so well :) :)

Thank you both - being on here has really helped me stick to it!

Fairycakes, the prawn spaghetti is great, really simple.

All you do is cook your spaghetti, when its got about 5 mins to go cook some spring onions in a bit of olive oil, add some garlic, dried chilli flakes, juice and zest from 1/2 a lemon (well, I do a half for 2 people) and a teaspoon of thai fish sauce, then add the prawns for the last minute, sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Yummy and very fast!
