15 plus evening meal.

I don't think that there is any way I can point this evening in advance. Infact, I don't think there is much point trying to point it at all. Looking at the menu, I am having haggis, then lamb and dolphinnose potatoes, followed by cheesecake or banoffee pie.

Next week, during the week, I will be following the Simply Filling plan. Sticking to Filling Foods, restricting processed foods. Having little bread, and having 21 points for anything that isn't on the filling food list.

Bring it..!

Haha, let me explain the 643,000 points...
I decided I wasn't going to worry about this weekend. This was a work function that I went to, well, a Girls Night with a cocktail demonstration and as soon as I saw the menu for the place, I had decided what I wanted to have. None of it was healthy eating friendly, and the sizes of the portions - Maybe 643,000 was a bit of an UNDER exaggeration in the end!!! On top of the wine that was floating about... there was

Haggis Wellington with a creamy whisky sauce
followed by
A huge chicken breast stuffed with skirlie, wrapped in bacon and roasted, served with [can't spell it] dauphinoise potatoes, roast carrots and parsnip in a drambuie sauce
and finished off with
strawberry cheesecake drizzled in chocolate with cream.

Then there were all manner of martinis, cosmopolitans, I lose track after this having had a couple of drinks getting ready too...

Sunday night, we went to an all you can eat chinese buffet. Needless to say, I ate too much. I have decided though that the idea of an all you can eat is always much more pleasant than the actual experience and I will try pretty hard to avoid these situations in future. I always go for one too many, and regret it. Need to remember that last time, I was uncomfortably full. Even after a 20 minute stroll..!

So! Simply Filling!
I think this is what they used to call the Core plan, if that makes any sense? No? Core is before my time too, so I'm not sure, but the gist I have understood is this:

In your book, there are foods highlighted in green. These are the filling foods, that fill you up better than the non-highlighted ones. These are highlighted on the Tracker online, by a green diamond too.
As I understand it, you don't have to point everything at all. Instead of getting say, 24 points a day, you can have as much as you need to feel full of the filling foods. You just have to stop eating when you are comfortably full. You also get an allowance of 21 points for the week, to spend on stuff that isn't highlighted green - so bread, cheese, that kinda stuff can come from your 21 points.
I've never actually followed it properly, so I can't say how well it works, or how easy it is to follow but I am giving it a go this week. It seems very similar to the Slimming World philosophy, and I personally did quite well on that. I find at the moment I want to eat lots of things that are 0-points - stir fries and salads, and I don't want to be filling up on these, and then have 15 points left for the evening, or believe me I will hit the biscuit tin.

Righty... I've had my off-plan fix. Right back on it now. I was going to do Simply Filling BUT when I went to tescos, they had NOWT decent in in the way of veg, not even any baking potatoes, that's rubbish.. So I have not been able to stock up as much as I would like. So... 25 points ahoy.

Breakfast - [4]
2 poached eggs
1 slice wholemeal toast

Lunch - [4.5]
2 x WW pittas

Hi Jen - long time no 'speak'! :D

I'm intrigued now as to whether you decided on the stir fry or the bolonese and whether you managed to resist the cereal!!

As ever, your food looks really interesting and inspiring.

Thanks Lesley :)

Haha, well I caved, feeling the need to have stodge rather than healthy grub..
I made chilli instead of bolognese and worked it out to be 3 points for a dollop of that, a big wrap for 3 points and 1 oz lf cheese for 1.5

Then I felt like a fat piggie and went on the wii for a good 45 minutes. This plus my walking - 5.5 APs for the day, so I was still "within" my points.. just!

Will update today's food later on after I have deviated from this plan -
