WW Meal Plan – 30.06.15 – 06.07.15

Hi guys,

Hope you are all well. As I mentioned in my previous post, OH has challenged me to meal plan from what we already have in the freezer and cupboards and to try and not do a food shop. I’m a little doubtful to not doing a food shop altogether so there might be a tiny shop to just top up some essentials. I’m also doing part counting, part Filling & Healthy this week to try and combat my case of the munchies which have been coming more and more frequently in the past couple of weeks!

Tuesday – Counting – 29pp
Breakfast: Graze peaches provancale granola (6pp) with 250ml skimmed milk (3pp) = 9pp

Dinner: yoghurt (2pp) with frozen fruit, 3 ryvita (2pp) with 30g ham (1pp) and 30g Phili light (1pp) = 6pp

Friday – Filling & Healthy

Lunch: roasted salmon with carrots and peas
Dinner: WW pasta with scallops, prawns, mussels

Saturday – Filling & Healthy – 5pp
Breakfast: scrambled eggs, baked beans, Quorn bitesize kiev (100g – 5pp) = 5pp
Lunch: WW pasta with scallops, prawns, mussels
Dinner: savoury 5% beef mince with roast new potatoes

Sunday – Counting – 16pp+
Breakfast: 3 Weetabix golden syrup (6pp) with 250ml skimmed milk (3pp) = 9pp
Lunch: WW salmon wedge ready meal = 7pp
Dinner: out for dinner with family

Monday – Filling & Healthy
Lunch: savoury 5% beef mince with roast new potatoes
Dinner: veggie soup – thinking broccoli and peas at the moment.

Until next time.. x

Weigh In Monday – 8th June 2015

Hi guys,

Just a quick one today. Weighed in yesterday morning at 15 stone 5.5lbs which means a 2.5lbs loss! I went for dinner with a friend last night instead of Wednesday so although I was still within daily and weekly points I feel a bit heavier today but I shan’t be touching the scales until next week!

I’m definitely starting to feel like I’m getting used to counting and it feels almost natural to me now. It’s just a little frustrating sometimes when some items are not in the database and as a lot of Asian foods don’t have the nutritional values on the product, it’s hard to work out. There has been a lot of guesstimation this week though I feel I have overestimated to be safe. What do you guys think?

Until next time.. x

Food Shopping – 08.06.15 – Asda

Hi guys,

Another budget food shop for you 🙂 I went to Asda this week for a quick shop. I was searching for some low point snacks and several posts about how some of the Asda Smartprice range were around 2pp and pretty cheap so win win all round (as long as it tastes good!)

 photo 2015-06-08 16.39.40.jpg
Fruit and veg: 2 punnets of strawberries, mushrooms, 2 packs of carrots, pears, clementines, apples, new potatoes, 2 punnets of cherry tomatoes, a bunch of bananas, punnet of nectarines and a bag of spinach

 photo 2015-06-08 16.43.51.jpg
Everything else: Yeo Valley 0% natural yoghurt (half pot 1pp), Dairylea light cheese slices (1pp each), Laughing Cow extra light triangles (3 for 1pp), wafer thin ham (30g for 1pp), bagel thins (3pp each), sandwich thins (3pp), Smartprice caramel wafers (2pp each), 15 eggs (2pp each) and Smartprice baked crisps (2pp each).

Total: £23.82

I think I’m getting the hang of this budgeting malarkey. Putting my list through the website first definitely helps as I make a note of prices so I don’t pick the wrong item or go too crazy.

Anyhow, I hope someone out there found this useful. If you have any questions, just leave me a comment.

Until next time.. x

WW Food Log – Tues 26.05.15 – Mon 01.06.15 – 2lb loss

Hi guys,

So my first food log on WW – it doesn’t look particularly healthy in some places and in others I think my food portions are too big but I suppose as long as I’m under points, that’s good right?

Yeah, so I think I went a little overboard in the last few days – particularly on Saturday. I did extra exercise and I think that contributed to me eating like a horse. Looking back it seems a bit ridiculous! Plus I ate four lots of pizza (1 healthified, the others not) which seems a bit much. I’ll see how I do during weigh in as looking at what I ate, makes me think I will have probably have gained!

EDIT: Lost 2lb this week. Although I think maybe I was lucky – I’m going to lay off the pizza this week!

Until next time.. x

Not too much this week and trying to get the most out of meals so I’m not cooking too much either as I’ll be back at college and this week is going to be crazy busy at work as well so just want to make it as stress free as possible. Hopefully it will cut down on my shopping costs as I overspent last week so it’ll even out a bit 🙂

Until next time.. x

Food Shop – 26.05.15

Hi guys,

As promised, here’s my food shop from last night. I was a tad over budget (I bought a few things for next week – not sure why!) so I decided I’m going to alter my meals a bit for this week. Instead of KFC on Friday, I’m just going to replicate Monday’s treat dinner so I don’t have to spend any more money this week 🙂 and I forgot to freeze my curry so I’m just using some other stuff I have on hand for a couple of lunches instead.

2015-05-26 21.20.01

Fruit and veg: clementines, mushrooms, 2x strawberries, gala apples, carrots, new potatoes, sweet potatoes, honey dew melon and nectarines

2015-05-26 21.25.56

Everything else: French Fries multipack (2pp/pack), tin of sliced peaches in juice, tin of fruit salad in juice, wafer thin honey roast ham (1pp for 35g), 2x mini cravings cheese (0pp for 1, 1pp for 2 or 3), laughing cow extra light triangles (1pp each), 2x lean corned beef (10pp/tin), pack of 3 houmous stackers (3pp for 35g) crumpets (3pp each or 5pp for two), bacon medallions (1pp each), brown sandwich thins (3pp each), bagel thins (3pp each), Ryvita original (1pp each), mini meringue nests (3 for 1pp), 2x Dairy Milk Oat Crunch (4pp/bar) and Morrisons milk chocolate rice slices (1pp each).

I also bought a pack of frozen peas (2pp for 80g), frozen mediterranean vegetables (aubergine, courgettes and peppers – 0pp) and a pack of 2 Chicago Town deep dish four cheese pizzas (12pp each) which I forgot to photograph as they were defrosting pretty quick when I got home! My total was £42.50 which would have hit my target if I didn’t buy so much cheese or the corned beef or any of the treats >.<

Anyway, it’s still quite a bit less than normal and I shall refrain from any “top up” shops throughout the week!

Until next time.. x
