The Week I Went Back To School

food, slimming, weight loss, Weight Watchers

After a cheese and wine night last Saturday and takeaway pizza on Sunday I went back to school on Monday (if you’ve not read it already see my previous blog). I’m happy to report a did get an A in Health Studies with a 1.5 pound loss on Friday morning. ☺️

Here are some things I learnt:
It is possible to have a stressful day and not have to sink into a vat of wine (no drinking on a school night!)
I don’t need to have supper -even if I have got points left over- if I’m not hungry (I do like a hot chocolate and some toast before bed)
Planning works! I’m not a fan of planning what to eat each day as how on earth do I know what I will want for my breakfast next Wednesday?? (I know this works for some but I find it too restrictive and then if I don’t fancy what’s on the menu that day I end up eating something I shouldn’t) what I did instead was buy a blackboard and wrote down different breakfast, lunches and dinners I could have during the week based on what I had in and ticked them off as I had them
Taking time out to prep meals is key. I spent a day cooking meals that could be ready easily during the week
Here are some of the meals I ate that kept me on track:
Teriyaki scallops with vegetables

I have eaten well all week and not felt deprived.
