A great loss!

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

So this past week I have managed to lose......

2.3 kilos!!!!!
Sadly my weight had managed to get back up to 92.4kg (too much wine on our holiday). I am now sitting on 90.1kg. Next week I will be back in the 80's and am determined never to see the 90's again!
I was planning a trip to the gym this morning but I sletp through my alarm (2 late nights in a row). I am going to do an exercise DVD that I have at home to make sure I do something!
The comedy show that we went to was fantastic! Before we headed out I had a couple of rice crackers with sweet chilli philly dip to make sure I wasn't tempted with what food would be at the show. I am happy to say that at interval I was happy to sip my water while hubby had some potato chips. After the show we came home for dinner (thank goodness Maccas was chockers) and I made a ham, cheese and tomato toasted sandwich for dinner. I ate about 3/4 of it before I started feeling full and threw the rest away.
I have just joined a website called simple savings. Hubby and I both earn very good incomes but we buy what we want, when we want. As we earn good money we don't tend to worry about saving so much. This is going to change.
My challenge to myself today is to make dinner from what we have at home. Now I haven't done a proper grocery shop in a while and the fridge and pantry is looking pretty bare. I have however managed to scrape up dinner. Here's the recipe.
I had a frozen BBQ chicken in the freezer and as I don't have any zucchini I will replace that with some vegetables I need to use up in the fridge. I've probably already saved the money it cost to join the vault. Normally I would have left the frozen chicken and just purchased a fresh one.
I am in such a positive frame of mind at the moment. Changes are happening all around me!

Whoops. The links don't work. I'm trying to cook more and that keeps me out of the fast food joints. I've saved tons of money over the last 6 weeks by not eating out much.

Hey Sandy Lee!
The links are fixed!

The pasta was just OK. I think next time I would add some onion and some cracked pepper.

Hope your son is doing well!

That is indeed a great loss! Congratulations!!

Hello, I'm Vanessa.. I've been lurking around for a few weeks.. I was banded on 15 Feb. I'm finding your scribblings most inspiring. :)

I find it interesting to see how much you can fit in -- such as not being able to finished a toasted sandwich and having a couple of rice crackers to stave off hunger for a few hours. I'm starting on solids on Monday and it's hard to get my head around how much I'll be able to eat...

Oh, I started a blog, too... :)
