Push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.
WOW! Yesterday was amazing, full room morning and night all ready to embrace Flex, a few uncertainties, a little caution but overall a great big “YES, let’s do this!” I particularly loved the message I received after the meetings, one said;
"I’m not gonna lie I sh&t myself when I saw new plan but read the gumph, planned most of my meals & I can see a full size double decker being consumed"
Flex makes Smart Points liveable, that’s for sure, the clues in the name FLEXible, my sister has already lost half a stone already on it and my helper Angie 3.5lb (yes they had it a week early). That's a positive sign for sure.
I managed another day on track, even had points for a nice glass of wine, I’m gonna be honest I used a couple of my weeklies and had a second glass, no early morning today so I’m okay, no wine tonight to balance it out ready for my busy full on Thursday.
For breakfast yesterday I had an egg white sandwich, only because Alfie ate my egg yolks, he’s not great at eating so when he shows interest in something that’s good for him, I let him have it. For lunch I had a chicken dinner made from the Sunday leftovers, that was lush, then last night I had salmon and butternut squash squaffles, I really enjoyed that. If you use instagram, all my meals get posted on there https://www.instagram.com/bev_ww/
I’ve just took some turkey steaks out of the freezer, they’ve been there a while so need using up, I think I bought them because they were a whoopsie in the co-op. What to make with them, looking will give me some ideas of what to do with leftover turkey at Christmas if we have one.
This recipe http://www.eatwell101.com/slow-cooked-turkey-leg-recipe looks good, might do something similar in the slow cooker.
Or maybe a pie similar to this https://www.bakedbyrachel.com/leftover-thanksgiving-turkey-shepherds-pie/
Then of course I could just through them into a curry sauce for quickness or roll them up and stuff with some cream cheese of some sort. Ooo I love that idea and sundried tomatoes, spinach, spring onions nom nom. So much to eat, so little time ;)
Right back to reality, I’ve got to wait for them to defrost first, I think I’m gonna get tomorrows dinner sorted too, a stew maybe, I’ve spotted stew beef in the freezer so if I take that out, I’m thinking slow cooker beef and veggies, just leave it on all day then I won’t have to stress about tea or maybe slow cooker chicken stew. Whatever I do, it’ll be in the slow cooker, ooo unless I make a chicken casserole in the oven today ready for tomorrow, oh ma’an I’m making myself hungry.
I want to play in the kitchen this morning now, if I get a wriggle on I might have time, moms got the dentist today and I’ve got meetings later to get ready for, all my paperwork from yesterday, I can fit in an hour in the kitchen I’m sure. I need a couple of days to sort this mess that is my house out for sure. It’s full of kids toys for yum tums, I need to have a bit of a clear as I’m having the floors done downstairs soon, going to order the tiles today.
Right, stop talking – start doing, here’s to day 3 for me, whether you’ve started Flex or not, remember Weight Watchers has always worked another few days won’t make any difference and I’ll see you in your meeting.
Have a good one BeYOUtiful. x
