Meal Planning Monday - 7th October

Homemade zero pp soup, rice cakes and cottage cheese

Happy Monday! Apologies for lack of any sort of posts in the last two weeks. Work has been crazy busy and getting back into the Weight Watchers way of life has been a bit of a priority.

Speaking of which, my first week back on WW has been brilliant! I felt in control and still managed a few treat here and there. And at my Weigh-in the morning I had lost.... *drum roll* .... 3lb!

Really proud of myself for sticking with it, and raring to go this week, a loss is always a good motivator. I have some lovely meals planned this week and its funny but being on this whole healthy eating kick I find I am enjoying food more, when I do have treats they feel like treats! I savour them and enjoy them all the more!

Now onto this weeks meal plan;

Breakfast: Chocolate and strawberry overnight oats, 40g oats, 140ml milk, teaspoon cocoa powder, handful chopped strawberries. - 6pp
Lunch: Sainsbury's be good to yourself ham and mushroom tagliatelle - 9pp
Dinner: Leftover 0pp Carrot Laksa Soup with rice cakes and cottage cheese - 4pp
I have a lot of points leftover today, so might just treat myself to a couple of G&Ts or some ice cream

Breakfast: Lemon curd and kiwi overnight oats - 6pp
Lunch: Ham and egg salad with pitta bread pom bear crisps - 10pp
Dinner: Beef and vegetable stew (all hail the return of the slow cooker!) not pointed this yet but should be low, will serve with either bread or boiled potatoes.

Breakfast: Peanut butter and banana overnight oats - 7pp
Lunch: Sainsbury's be good to yourself cottage pie - 10pp
Dinner: Leftover stew

I am off work today and out shopping with a friend, so not sure if we are eating out.
Dinner: gammon with sweet potato mash and veggies - 11pp

Breakfast: overnight oats (one of the flavours above, not sure what I'll fancy) - 6pp
Lunch: Sainsbury's be good to yourself chilli - 9pp
Dinner: Chicken enchiladas with a rocket salad - 14pp

Looking forward to quite a few things on this weeks menu, I bought the Sainsbury's ready meals on special and find them a bit of a lifesaver for those busy week days when you don't have time to prepare anything.

I want to try and do a little exercise this week, maybe just wearing my pedometer more and upping my steps to start.

Normal service shall resume on the blog shortly, got some exciting posts in the pipeline from gadget reviews to recipes to cupcakes! Watch this space.

As always I have submitted this post into Mrs M's Meal Planning Monday linky.
