Vegetable lasagne, with cottage cheese instead of white sauce.
Thursday will be something we have left over.
For all this week i have had weetabix and all bran for breakfast, a few days crumpets for lunch,
Wednesday i made a low fat beef stew with rice and a weight watchers pudding. Thursday i made a cold chilli cooked trout with tortellini, and friday was the quorn chicken burgers.
Now as ive been shopping and bought alot more snacks, im going to try and do 4 things for this month. Only 4-6 slices of bread a week, no potatoes, no choclate and try to have as little fizzy juice as possible and swap it with fruit juice or cordial.
My target for the month is to lose half a stone. which in my first month will be a good achievement and a platform for the rest of the year ahead. I know there may be tougher and harder times ahead, as the less weight i have, the harder it will be to go.
I beilive dieting and losing weight is a way of life, especially when it hasnt been part of your life for, probably all your life, as im making the biggest changes ever. I dont work the perfect job for dieting, as im a cook in a kitchen filled with food and constantly making things and the temptation is there every single day. The other tough thing is the hours, as i dont get the normal breaks a 9-5 worker will get, i dont have regular breakfast times, and my afternoon break is it at 3 and i dont get home till 8. So ive got to find someway of making dieting with the hours i work, work for me and work right.
