Wobbles Wednesday, My Way

It is Wednesday again, and I have made a vow to myself to be positive today. It seems to be working for me. I had so much support after yesterdays post, and I want you all to know how much I appreciate it. I have spoken before about my depression, yesterday was a real low point for me. Of course, that means, the only way is up.

So today was the first morning, since school resumed, that I have had to do the school run in the morning. I think I needed it. I was determined to get a few little things done too. So after taking the little one to school, I walked around the village, doing the things I had to do. But most of all, I smiled at people..........and I left the house when I didn't need to!

This has made the whole day feel better, and helped my mood.

Wobbles Wednesday

Back to what this post is about though. My vow last week, was that this time I am serious. I joined Slimming world online, and have received fantastic support from some friends. I've also tried to get moving a bit more (again). This has all led to a ..........

5.5lb loss!!

Shocked, pleased, motivated........All of it!

One of the things I want to share with you was a recipe that has really got me through this week.

Its basically a frittata, made with leftovers. When you do your evening dinner, cook a little too much. I have used peas, sweetcorn, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes. It's all gone in, in some combination or other.

Using spray oil, gently warm the veg through. 
While its going, mix up 2 eggs. 
Pour the eggs over the warmed veg, and spread out.
(Make sure you use a smallish pan, too big and the egg will burn)
As the underside cooks a little, weigh out 40g of a light, grated cheddar.
Turn off the heat, sprinkle the cheese on top, then place under the grill.
Give it a couple of minutes, or until the cheese is cooked how you like.

This photo doesn't do the taste justice, unfortunately!
That's it! On a Slimming world plan, it's one healthy extra A choice (for the cheese). I have found it delicious. Nothing will make you stick to healthy eating like tasty food.

Do let me know if you try the recipe, it's a great way to use up your leftovers.

  3. Wow, that's a great loss! I personally love frittata but my children won't touch it. It's so frustrating as they have a really varied diet normally. Well done!

  5. Pleased you are on the up. Always here to help if I can with that. Love how you go off on a tangent - I do that loads both on the blog and in real life. Great weight loss and you are so right about healthy eating being easier when eating tasty things. My husband put peppers in our salad last night and it made all the difference - taste, texture and colour.
