Clinging onto my shiney sticker

Well the last didn't go so well, I had a number of naughty things that I really shouldn't have had but then I also walked 32 miles with the crazy dog so was a little bit peeved to put half a pound back on. 

I know I hadn't been perfect but hoped the walking would have made up for it.  At least I clung on to my shiney sticker as I have still lost half a stone.

We had the tasting night at class last week too, I didn't make a curry in the end which is a good job as someone else had, I made falafels instead. They went down really well with people asking for the recipe.  They taste a bit like onion bhaji's and are syn free:

Baked Falafel's

1 x red onion
1 x tin of chick peas (and a little spalsh of the water from tin)
1 x red chilli
2 x eggs
2 x tsp ground cumin
2 x tsp ground corriander
4 x garlic cloves (at least)
1/2 tsp baking powder
bing bunch fresh coriander

method - chuck it all in the food processor and blitz, either put in a dish/baking tin or shape into rounds and cook for 20 mins or so.

Dead easy and something syn free to snack on, I have them with a syn free yoghurt and mint dip.

My week after that hasn't been too great either, a very stressful week at work announcing potential redundancies coupled with bonfire night and all the goodies that come with it have lead to a few naughty bits and peices but I have also been poorly with a stomach bug so hoping that evens it all out.

Can't go to class this week so back on with being good today to see a loss next week, got another bonfire night party this saturday so need to be extra good before that.  Day off work today due to car MOT meant I had time to cook a lovely breakfast of homemade hashbrown, bacon and poached eggs. yum yum yum.  About to burn it off on a long rainy dog walk.

oh and the garage just called to say the car is going to cost £450 and seen as I have spent £200 on it already in the last two weeks that means I can't afford to eat anyway.  Size 8 here I come!!!

Good luck to everyone else try to shift the pounds.  Slowly but surely.

  1. 32 miles, wow! Even if you didn't lose weight, it's all going to be beneficial to your fitness. The falafels sound delicious, and good luck!
