    so after a good solid 12 hours sleep im feeling much better! been meggga hungry today though which is unusual when TOTM has been & gone, maybe its the week catching up with me! put my day off today to good use & went crazy in the kitchen, made a couple of new dishes which were delish (check out the recipes at the bottom of this post :))

    Food diary day 7 (sunday 10/05/2009)

    Breakfast

    warburtons roll (2)
    egg (1.5)
    actimel 0.1%/milk/flora (1)
    honey nut cornflakes (2)
    (6.5)

    Dinner

    potato patties (so so good!) (1.5)
    60g spaghetti (3)
    homemade mexican chilli style dish (1)
    cookie crisp cereal (2)
    (7.5)

    Tea

    100g gnocci (king of carbs) (2)
    more of the chilli (1)
    rainbow drops (1)
    options hot choc (0.5)
    (4.5)

    Total for day = 18.5 (whooops, not too bothered though as a. damage limitation as i wanted to eat the world today! b. will have a point less tomorrow)

    Exercise

    hit the gym again, another 507 kcals burnt. should have put my exercise aims on the first post but never did. im aiming to burn 2000kcals a week at the gym & 30miles a week on my bike ticker.

    total kcals burnt this week: 2019
    bike miles: 30

    all in all a great week! semi tempted to weigh in tomorrow but i think ill hold out until friday.

    potato pattie & chilli recipe...

    potato patties

    150g potato
    1/3 of an onion
    egg white
    thyme (optional)
    rosemary (optional)

    boil the potatoes for 15mins or so until soft. saute the onion in a frying pan (use a bit of low cal spray if needed, i never do) mash up the potatoes, add the egg white, the onion, a teaspoon of rosemary & a teaspoon of thyme & continue mashing. place a sheet of tin foil on the grill & divide the potato mixture into 4 little patties on the sheet. grill for about 10mins or so until they just start to brown. enjoy! both the rosemary & thyme are optional & you could just substitute them for other herbs/spices, whatever takes your fancy really. works out at 1.5 pts for the recipe ive listed :)

    mexican veggie chilli

    400g chopped tinned tomatos
    240g kidney beans
    1 pkt schwartz americano spicy meatball recipe mix (this is what makes the chilli so good i think! on offer at tesco 3 for £1.50)
    1 onion
    2 handfuls of mixed peppers

    saute the onion & peppers in a frying pan until onions are slightly brown & the peppers look cooked. add the chopped tomatoes, leave to simmer for a couple of mins. add the kidney beans, give it a good stir & leave it all to simmer again for a few more mins. add the spice mix, put on the lowest heat & leave to simmer for 10-15mins. points at 4.5 (3.5 for kidney beans/1 for the spice mix) and easily makes 4 portions!

    no exercise againnnnn, just could not be bothered after work! off now for a couple of days so definitely gonna hit the gym a lot & try & fit in a major bike ride to hit 30 mile targ this week.

    made a fresh batch of "chilli" this time with baked beans so its a bit more pointy, worked it out at 5.5 for the lot but going to point it at 6 to be on the safe side. there is sooooo much of it, im gonna be keeping andrex in business this week! feels like ive eaten loads today, probably because i bulked out my tea with loads of salad, i love weight watchers!

    uhh ohhhhhhhh so yesterday started out great! & went rapidly downhill at teatime when i went out for tea with my mum. i rarely see her & i think she feels a bit guilty about this & tries to fatten me up on the occasions we do go out with a 3 course meal, probably so she knows im not going to starve during the month we dont see each other! haha. not saying that i didnt want to eat the yummy food because i did, but even if i didnt its best to go along with it or the inevitable 1000000 questions start! (the only people supportive of diets are the ones on them!) ill post my food diary for yesterday but absolutely no idea on points, not gonna fret about it though its done, so just gonna draw a line under it & start a fresh today :)

    dum dum dummm.. weigh in day! very surprised to say ive broken into the 8s for the first time in my life :):):) the scales are showing 8st12.5 so im gonna class that as 8st 13lbs which is another 2lbs lost. my work trousers felt hugeee today but i didnt really think id lost any weight, all in the mind sometimes isnt it! i treated myself with a face pack & nice hot bath this evening. also went to morrisons this evening to get some 'vital' supplies, including pink & whites (which are meant to be delish if you microwave them) the ww bagels (half price) ww petit pains (also half price) morrisons eat smart iced dessert (low point icecream substitute) & loads of herbs & spices so i can make a big batch of low point curry & spag bol this week. im supposed to lower my points now to 17, but i do quite a bit of exercise usually & never eat bonus activity points so im gonna stick with 18, if no loss this week the plan is to lower to 17 (uhh ohh!) heres to another 7 days & another loss hopefully!

    Food diary day 15 (monday 18/05/2009)

    Breakfast

    warburtons sandwich roll (2)

    Exercise

    no exercise againnn today, but i have drawn up my weekly plan which im gonna try & stick to for the next 2 weeks & monitor results. basically im going to go to the gym 4 times & do something different each time..
    - a 10k run
    - a 5k run & 20mins on the cross trainer
    - 30mins on the cross trainer / 10minute power walk / 20min run
    - 30mins cross trainer / bleep test

    i think i need to do this because im lagging with exercise & because im still losing weight theres no motivation for me to go as much as i used to! im a sucker for a challenge so hopefully this will work.

    Hey Katie, Id love to have a buddy to help me get to august! however i have not yet learned to do a link to your thread or invite you to link mine? any advice?
    I found your excerise regime really helpful, that you want to do so many miles a week, and last night, i got on the bike!! ha ha obviously did something! also you seem to eat quite a lot of cereal which is low fat but fills you up! well normally i would have eaten About 10-13 points by now (10:58am) but ive only had 3 and lugged lots of water...let me know how to link you and i will.
    thanks Katie.
