A productive Sunday!

Sunday, March 7, 2010

Here is a picture of the yummy pizza I made on Saturday night. I am determined not to opt for takeaway when things are busy. This probably took as much time to make as what I would have spent in the drive thru!

I didn't eat the whole thing. Probably about 3/4 of it.

I had the best day yesterday. At the moment I'm working 6 days a week which only leaves me Sunday as my 'rest day' (aka washing clothes, cleaning the house, bookwork etc etc). Normally I procrastinate the morning away and then do everything in a mad rush in the afternoon. Hubby and I were up bright and early and headed out for brunch. I opted for the omlette and am proud to say that I only ate until I was full (which wasn't much). We got home and it was all hands on deck. Hubby mowed the back yard and I got to cleaning the kitchen and doing my other household duties. I then headed over to work to do some cleaning. When I got home at 3pm with everything done I jumped in the pool to cool off and relax for a minute. The rest of the afternoon was mine! I indulged in a couple of glasses of wine and made the most fantastic salad to go with our steak for dinner. I'm not sure what is going on with my band at the moment. Breakfast I hardly ate anything and was full, whereas last night I ate a whole piece of rib fillet. I should not be able to eat that much. I'm tempted to go and have a bit more fill put in. Does anyone else go through this?????

I am very inspired by cooking at the moment. Years ago I did a stint on Weight Watchers and had set a goal to cook our evening dinner each night for a month from their cookbooks. This was back in the day when I finished work at 4pm! Hubby still says it was the best we ever ate! With my sparkly clean kitchen I'm inspired again. One of my favourite shows on TV is The Coof and the Chef I love Maggie Beer and I especially love the recipes on the show. Stay tuned for some great recipes!

Yummo, that looks fabulous! What's the base?

I think a lot of bandits find their band a lot tighter in the mornings. The doc explained it to me as when we're sleeping we're horizontal which moves the fluid etc upwards around our organs which puts more pressure on our band. During the day, walking around the fluid moves towards the lower half of our body which eases the pressure on our bands and we can eat more.

It's hard to do but try to only eat until you're not hungry rather than feeling full. I don't eat anything till lunchtime (and then usually only a yoghurt or something), but could probably eat a whole fish at dinner time if I let myself!! Well maybe not a whole fish, but you know what I'm saying!
