On Saturday I was feeling tired and lazy so simply cooked a steak and made orzo with chilli and garlic again. Super fast and tasty.
Ocado came again on Sunday (I’d managed to smash a kilner jar of flour all over my kitchen and it turned out that Ocado had kilner jars on special offer – win!) and brought me a chicken which I had with broccoli and a jacket potato. I didn’t quite manage to throw away all of the skin.
On Monday my evening plans unexpectedly fell through so I went home and made the ultimate comfort food – a chicken, mushroom and tarragon pie. No, not terribly diet but not too bad either and I only ate half of it which is definitely progress.
This has been another week where I didn’t really care that much and I didn’t count my points at all. I just can’t stop eating nutella which is SO STUPID. Somehow I’ve managed to stay exactly the same weight as I was last week, so in total I’ve lost 10lbs which works out as 1lb per week. It’s OK but it’s not great. I think that what has bedded in is a general attitude towards things like oil/butter – I just don’t use anything like as much as I would have done before. My portions are smaller. There have been definite mental shifts which seem to be making a difference even when I’m not being very good and that can only be a good thing…it makes me hopeful that when I do finally lose all of the weight, then it may be possible to maintain that loss.
