Weight watchers - week 1

Tuesday, 17 May 2011

Right I know I said I'd be back on Wednesday to share how I got on with my first week back on weight watchers, but today was my first weigh in and Im a little bit (ok a lot) excited about how I got on... So im here a day early!

I lost 5lbs!!!

So so happy! I know you always lose more in the first week, but im still awfy happy! Considering my first goal is 7lbs off by rockness on the 10th June, I only have 2lbs more to lose to reach that goal!!

Aside from a few naughty moments at the weekend (think wine and mojitos) I've been trying pretty hard.

I bought a smoothie maker on Saturday so been making yummy healthy fruit smoothies for breakfast. First day we had strawberry and banana, which was lush!

Then the next day i tried blueberry, banana and cinnamon... Also yummy!

I also made some zero point butternut squash soup, it's so easy to make and really filling!

And today, I made the yummiest brunch.... A wrap with hot nutella and banana! I was in heaven, and it was only 7 ww points!!

What are your favourite low fat treats? I'd love to hear!

Project 365

Wednesday, 11 May 2011

I've been wanting to take part in this forever, but without always lugging my camera around, or having a decent camera phone I'd always end up forgetting to take pictures, or the ones i did get were really bad!

Since I got my iPhone 4 weeks ago, I've been taking hundreds of pictures, and so decided it would finally be a good time to start Project 365. If you don't know what project 365 is, it's quite simple, just have to take a picture every day! Simples!

Here's my first 10 days worth of pictures :)

Day 1 - went on a wee trip to the golf driving range with my boy

Day 2 - a connect 4 heart that my boy did for me. I had to break it up so we could play in the garden!

Day 3 - my little crumpet!

Day 4 - first day wearing sandals this summer!

Day 5 - urghhh! This happened at 9am and I had to walk about like that all day :(

Day 6 - little gift left on my desk from my workmate, Emma! How cute!?

Day 7 - little yellow bow that I knitted, and yellow nails. Off to do a night shift! :(

Day 8 - festive pints of cider, out in glasgow for my friend Rachel's birthday

Day 9 - easter bunny from my boy <3

Day 10 - my car gets its first ever wash... Thanks to my boyfriend!

I'll post the next 10 days soon :)
