Natural born fillers...

What contemptible scoundrel has stolen the cork to my lunch?
W. Clement Stone

Lunches... is one of the meals that really get to people.. and if you don't eat breakfast its a big deal... cause you're STARVING by the time it comes around and you'll just grab anything thinking you've got loads of propoints ... then those who have had breakkie, don't want to use too many points but you need all the energy you can muster to get you through the afternoon without choccie! A meal thats too heavy in the middle of the day and there'll be naps at desks... and its the one meal most of us at one stage or another need to grab on the go ... be it in petrol station or a corner shop where the selection isn't great and all we need is energy to get us through the afternoon... and really we all want to save points for the evening when the munchies attack!

First up .. SOUP.. I've posted on here a million times.. HERE's one that's yum, with loads of ideas for added flavour and zero pp.. it fills you up.. its good for you... experiment with it.. freeze it in individual portions and you're onto a winner... its basic staple!

If you have access to a kitchen try the 
Zero PP omlette!

Spray oil your pan and fry off some onions or shallots and use a tbsp of canderel or similar to caramelize them… add cherry tomatoes and mushrooms, some courgettes, peppers whatever you fancy and flavor them with garlic, chilli, pepper etc worcestershire sauce will beef it up a little as will a teaspoon of bovril.. 
I know I know.. but don't knock it till you try it!  

Whisk up 3 - 4 egg whites and get them fluffy.. 
this will give you a bigger omlette both visually and in your tummy… 
you could nearly double the size of the omlette from whisking alone... 

Add a tiny bit of mustard if you want to trick yourself that its yellow! This works! 
Then pour the egg whites over your veg in the pan.. 
turn the heat down and let it cook slowly through… when its nearly done.. 
pop your pan under the grill and brown the top of it.. 
and for 0.5pp met 3 laughing cow extra light triangles over the top! 
You'll be stuffed I promise! AND... only one pan to wash up!

Tricking yourself into think you have more on your plate at lunch time is the key!

For the sandwich lovers amongst us..  a mug of soup before you tuck into a sarnie can make you feel fuller and help cut down the PPs... but try wraps, bagels, Pat the Baker has his new Slims out which are great and different... try an open sandwich... variety is what's going to keep you interested and not just having the same old boring egg sandwich then grabbing a bag of crisps and hitting the vending machine mid afternoon!

Make lunch exciting... I can hear your eyes rolling from here... but take the time to do a lunch box and put it in the freezer... it won't kill you!

Yoghurts, mini cheeses, crackers and don't hit me.. FRUIT! Filling up on a variety of things will mean you'll feel full without rushing in the door and putting on the toaster, before you ever get to making dinner... and takes only minutes to assemble in the evening.. and if your office has a microwave.. when you're cooking in the evening.. add a little extra and bring it in for lunch! My lunch box has started MANY a cooking debate with some added recipe swaps!

BREAD... all listed on the page on the right...  >>>>>>>

Ice cream, chocolate and cake... ALL IN ONE!!!! 

I mean are they trying to upset me!

Cadburys, bless em, have brought these beauties out .. Ice cream flavoured cakes! 
You heard me! AND you can freeze them.. and they are lush! 

These raspberry ripple flavoured ones are especially nice but I'm a massive raspberry fan and freezing them isn't as crazy as it sounds! Being a savoury gal... I can usually take or leave these kinda things but a visitor brought them round and at 3PP each, I'd have spent that on a few biccies and not have enjoyed them half as much!

Raspberry Ripple - 3 pp per roll

Mint Choc Chip - 3 pp per roll

Toffee Ripple - 4 pp per roll

Holy moly!

Don't be fooled... this is not some glamourous Curly Wurly... They have the chocolate ( not the cadburys type though).. they have the caramel but they also have the added biscuit! About 2/3rds the size of a Curly Wurly and 4 PP each... these come in a box of 6 and can be found in most supermarkets... My opinion.. stick to original!

'Mmmmmmm pork chops and bacon .. my two favorite animals!'
Homer Simpson

Oh you thought I was going to babble on about one of these beauties... *drools*

Sorry kids... I'm on a tracking rant... BLTs.. in Weight Watchers camp, stands for - Bites, licks and tastes... We've all done it.. a lick of icing, a nibble of the other halfs cookie... "I'll only have a bite' .. 'No I won't have chips, salad for me .. well I'll just have one or two of yours!'... the kids didn't finish all their fish fingers.. but they managed to make their way into your gob! None of these little beauties ever see the light of day on the trackers of the world.. then we hop on the scales.. righteous.. 'wait for it.. I'm BOUND to be down I've been an ANGEL!' we tell the leader.. uh oh! UP! we're stunned! But I tracked.. I don't understand.. We're outraged...  

Every single thing that goes into your gob... needs to be accounted for.. EVERY. SINGLE. THING!!!! Its really that simple! NASA can hold off on the research... we're not gonna cure cancer with this info... but as the meerkats say... simples! 

TRACK PEOPLE.. just see the difference it makes... one week.. and be honest.. cause if you're lying on your tracker.. the only person you're fooling is you!

OK.. OK!!! Sorry veggies... Here's come some cheats for a BLT... Bibbity Bobbity Bacon!!!

Get on track...

If you're not an avid tracker .. be it on paper in your hand bag.. or on an app on your phone.. for this week... TRACK! Grab a note book...set up a document on your lap top.. use the notes tool on your phone.. just for one week... it will reveal your habits and when your munchie moments are...

People who are successful at weight loss.. KNOW what they're putting in their bodies every day.. they know what they're having for dinner.. they've PLANNED their weekend... so pick your favourite below and put it somewhere that it will remind you to track... and remember no ones got a perfect tracker all the time but when you have a good week you can look at it and see why... same with a bad week!  Your tracker is a useful tool in your weight loss kit!

a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot 
for a lot of people; 
it does for me!
Audrey Hepburn

"R" is for...


Even if your goal takes a lot of work and a long time to achieve, is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Is there a treat that is so appealing that you can't help but be drawn to it? Apart from the obvious benefits and wins like lower blood pressure, more energy, more fashionable clothes... we all have something in mind, a promise we made to ourselves once we got to goal... a fancy pair of shoes, a makeover, a new haircut, a holiday in a bikini.... These are good things to have.. but along the journey when you're feeling a little .. meh... then you have to reward yourself or you'll lose the plot and just give in... One gal in my class has a pedicure/manicure/facial for every silver 7.. it spurs her on... its summer and her toes are coming out (dear GOD let the sun shine this weekend!) .. and treat don't have to be expensive! They're very personal and 

Buy yourself ... a belt, cause you're shrinking... a book, flowers, clothes (shirt, shorts, skirt, jacket, jeans, etc., DVD, exercise clothes, healthy cookbook, iPod or mp3 player, iPhone, or iPad accessory, kitchen gadget, magazine subscription, membership (to a website, club, museum, etc.), new shoes, perfume/cologne, picture frame, exercise equipment (ball, weights, resistance bands, yoga mat, etc.), jewelry, fancy underwear...

Rewards don’t have to be expensive.

Download an app, computer game, exercise video, kindle book (e-book), movie...
Earn a date night with your significant other, a day off from doing the dishes or pick some housework you hate (ironing people!)... get a massage, a night off from cooking, a night off from giving the kids a bath.. whatever is a treat to you...
Spend time alone.... and do nothing... how often do you just sit down and do NOTHING.. just enjoy peace and quiet, lay down for a nap, read a book or magazine, sip coffee or tea and watch the world go by... Watch your favorite TV show (reserve the TV!!!)
Spend time doing anything you enjoy but don’t typically take the time to do.
Go to the bowling alley, comedy club, get tickets to a concert, golf course (even if its crazy golf!), go to the movies or a museum, take a day for yourself at the spa, or just decide today is your day and wander around at the zoo... 
Pamper yourself.... try acupuncture, run yourself a bubble bath with some fancy new  products, book yourself in for a facial.. I did this after I was sick and my poor skin needed it badly.. it was such a treat and well worth the money.. try a new haircut, feck it a new color, even a bit of fake tan would make you feel good about you!
Start saving and put the money towards a gift card for your favorite store, horse back riding, hot air balloon ride, a personal training session, sky diving, Spa day, a weekend trip...something you've really wanted to do but just haven't got round to it for whatever reasons... 
Set up a reward system where you earn money for achieving daily or weekly goals. Save the money in a jar or bank account and spend it on a large reward once you’ve earned enough. You could even start a matching program (euro for euro) if you have the cooperation from a significant other, friend, or family member!
Take a class from photography to golf.. whatever takes your fancy...
You're succeeding and you deserve to celebrate it!

Non scale victories can sometimes be your biggest friends.. that bloody scale hasn't moved in a few weeks and you're sick of counting points.. but .. but .. but.. wait! Your belt on your jeans in a notch tighter and that 'snug' dress just glides on now! Every thing from the seat belt on an airplane to being about to put on a sundress and not freak out about your bingo wings! You can sit in a meeting knowing the buttons on your shirt arent' going to take someones eye out! It all adds to your confidence... and the more compliments you get and the better you feel, the more likely you are to stay on track! Don't take the number on the scale as the be all and end all...

Throw out old clothes… I'm currently in the process of doing just that! 3 bags so far! You're never going to be that size again! If you keep your fat pants.. in your mind you're doubting your own success... chuck em! Get that haircut you've wanted but didn't have the confidence to get let alone brazen it out! Get some pals you trust and have a mini Gok session.. new underwear.. lads look away... I have gone down a bra size recently but when I got measured and fitted my boobs actually looked bigger!!! I KNOW!!! So the right undies make ALL the difference! Your body is changing so the clothes you put on it need to adjust too!

... to give up... Don't let the biscuit tin win... 

You all know I love to cook.. and I really must get around to adding more recipes on here.. I don't work for Weight Watchers but their cook books are ACE! Most of their products are over processed and whilst handy to have as a back up in the freezer or cupboard ... I'm the kinda gal who likes to make stuff from scratch knowing there's no 'E' numbers in there and it won't last until 2015 or beyond! There's so many great WW recipes blogs online.. seek them out and start with something simple if you're not a foodie.. before you know it .. you'll be telling Jamie Oliver he's wrong! I mean WHO would do that?! ahem..  *raises hand*

Soup is the easiest... experimenting is best.. add chilli, garlic, herbs, spices.. you will make mistakes.. and it will taste rubbish and you'll bin stuff and curse Nigella but you will improve with every recipe and be eating freshly made food that's so much better for you!

Don't wait until January to climb back up on the wagon.. and that 'I'll start again on MONDAY' will always be there.. make a decision today.. for you.. for your health.. and your body... that you will take care of it and nourish it.. you only get one.. there's no spare parts! 

Again amazing losses.. this challenge has been I think one of the better ones.. I've been so motivated by you.. I mean I came back from NYC lighter!!! I KNOW!!! 

Hope you all had a great bank holiday weekend and didn't go too crazy! 

Another challenge in the pipeline and a little revamp going on here but fear not there will be no disturbance whilst the decorators are in!
