What I ate this week…

As posting my food log worked so well for me last week, I thought I’d do the same again this week to see if I could get another great result…

OMGs I look totally insane in the still that YouTube chose for this. I tried to change it to another thumbnail but it won’t let me – LOL!

And for those who are interested, here’s what I ate this week…

We were at a music festival down at the beach from lunchtime onwards (so we took a picnic lunch), and went for a HUGE long walk along the beach, then back into town afterwards. The little’uns were a bit tired after all that walking, so we hopped on the bus to get home. I wasn’t sure of the syns for the Dinky Donut, as I couldn’t find it on the app. I estimated it, but then decided to lay off syns for the rest of the day, just in case I was wrong!

Today we went to Woodhorn Museum, and took a picnic lunch with us again. Afterwards, we took a walk from the museum along the side of the lake to QEII Country Park, and back again. There’s a little steam train that runs between the two, but we thought it would be nice to walk for a change. There were loads of different kinds of butterflies and hundreds of dazzling blue dragonflies!

The kids were back at school today, and I had an appointment in the morning, so it was all a mad rush (I should have set up some overnight oats last night!). Also had my Mum adjusting a dress for me to wear at my gig this coming weekend – it needed darts put in to make it fit properly on the top half. Now it looks awesome and I’m really looking forward to wearing it – it’s 50s style, and I have big net underskirts to wear with it.

13g reduced fat cheddar

TREATS: Crisps (6.5), Peperami (4), lollipop (1.5)

I prepped breakfast the night before – it’s so easy to mix up the ingredients and just leave them in the fridge overnight, and if, like me, you’re a chocolate addict, you’ll love chocolate chia! It’s made exactly the same way as vanilla chia, but you pop a couple of teaspoons of cocoa powder in too. I also doubled up on the milk element, as I was using my HEA choice and wanted that coconut hit. As for my homemade meatballs, well, they always go down well, and I made enough to have a portion to have another time.

WEDNESDAY:  SP DAY
HEA: 115mls skimmed milk, 200mls Alpro coconut milk,
1 Babybel Light
HEB1: 40g <5% sugar pat Cheerios

I had leftover meatballs in sauce from yesterday, but with “boodles” (spiralized butternut squash), which I steamed for a few minutes, and then stir fried. The <5% sugar Oat Cheerios are awesome – you get 40g of them as a HEB (you only get 25g of the regular kind!). I love having them with Alpro coconut milk – it adds a lovely flavour. I would usually have added some fruit to the top, but I discovered, just before serving, that the strawberries I’d planned on having had gone fuzzy, so I had to do without!

Had to throw dinner together quickly today, as I went to get my hair done in the afternoon, and only had a small window of time to cook and eat before I had to head out to rehearsal, so I just grabbed a salmon fillet and chopped up some butternut squash, chucked some Cajun spices on them both, and bunged them in the oven to cook while I got ready to go. Quick, but super tasty!
