|The scary thing has happened – someone I actually know out The Real World has found my blog (hey Dom!). I’m not sure why I thought no one would ever find it, but it might have been a little naive. I guess it doesn’t really change anything though, and I should just write as I normally do.
So – I was a bit worried that I’d struggle to get back onto my regular workday eating after the weekend. I did great last week, and over the weekend too, but you know me – I always worry about my motivation!
I ended up having a great weekend, both in real life and in terms of my tracking. I loved seeing Bec yesterday when she visited Bristol – we had a lovely lunch at Yo! Sushi (and the lovely Hannah joined us too) and then spent a couple of hours mooching round the shops. It was so nice to catch up, and made me feel a lot less left out of things back home having moved away. Best of all though, I … wait for it ….. ohmygod, actually-finished-a-weekend-on-points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes I did.
I tracked absolutely everything, did the best I could with working out my sushi points, and I haven’t quite used up all my Flex points, never mind my activity points. Whoop! And I’ve done alright today too. Packed my lunch, controlled my snacking (and did that even though I worked an hour and a half late this evening), and came home to cook my planned dinner. Amazingly, I’ve actually underpointed today too, as my dinner actually came to far less than I was expecting – so I’ve still got 6 points to kill.
The stir-fry beef was lovely – I did it with my usual “sauce” – garlic, light soy sauce and ground ginger – simple, tasty and zero points. I used half a pack of Sainsbury’s Be Good To Yourself Beef Stir Fry, which came to a very economical 4 points, and a nest of egg noodles from Waitrose, which were just 2 points!! See – sometimes actually pointing everything individually works in your favour :o)
Now ….. what to use those remaining 6 points on ….. I can’t save ‘em after all!
