Weigh in day already!! I was hopeful this week as I’d planned ahead almost all my meals so I you could say I was planning for success!
After last weeks 1/2 lb off I made sure to increase my speed foods vs free foods so I made sure I had at least 3-4 different veg in my meals or fruit in between.
New meals I tried out this week was Butter squash & Coconut curry which was from this months SW magazine. Vegetable curries never appealed to me until I joined SW, I had a new-found love for spinach, greens, and lentils, it also helped me get creative in the kitchen.
The Butternut squash curry was absolutely delicious, I like my veggies chunky, they always help make a meal look hearty. I added spinach to mine and served with rice, I used half a squash as I was cooking for 1 but gave me enough for 2 meals. So I had the curry on its own as lunch the next day. (Recipe at the end of this post)
I’m mad about Mexican food so treated myself to a Tuesday Turkey Tacos day! Packed with loads of peppers and onions and fresh tomatoes in 2 stand and stuff tacos served with a salad… it was de-lish! (I did have pictures but they didn’t come out so well so apologies)
Again it was a week alcohol free and I’m not even craving it, however I am out on Friday night which I’m so looking forward to, the ankle is healed and I’m ready to have fun with the girls(though I think I’ll leave the heels at home)
So how did I do? I lost 1lb!! I’m very pleased with this week as I consciously made better choices, I was aiming for 2 but I’m fast approaching my least favourite time of the month!
I’m feeling hopeful about next week, Sunday I discovered the wonders that it Aldi, which turns out is amazing for anyone following SW plan, I had their Ashfield Farm Minted Lamb Grillsteaks which was 6 syns for the 2, served with creamy mash and greens it was the perfect sunday dinner. Having looked into Aldi food I think I like the masses will be making the switch and picking up some SW friendly food.
That’s it from me for now lovelies, I hope to come back to you with more positive news. I’d love to hear what you’ve been making this week, I’m always looking for inspo and hope I can share some with you all.
I’ll leave you with recipe for the curry I made last week, if you do make it, be sure to get in touch or if you’re on instagram tag me in so I can see your delicious meals!
Until next time lovelies!
