I blender a lot of mine and add them in like lasagna or curry burgers etc just blend then and add to sauce or even blend the mince in with in as well for lasagna or burgers or kebab etc not sure if it's the correct way but at least I know I've have it. Plus with cabbage in home made coleslaw or salad I think it kinda works lol
If you find a better way please share
I like carbs to much love plain boiled pasta with chesse on top my husband is never impressed when I suggest it lol x

flashy is that your first week back to work after having your little one? how are you feeling about it?
dunno if it's just a hard week but I'm very grumpy and getting to that annoying stage of I can't be bothered with this or that. And trying not to reach for comfort food is so hard!

SW is some kind of mystical wonder.
I like that the structure forces you to have a bit of dairy & fibre as opposed to just calorie counting where you can be led by the number rather than its nutritional value.
I need to start SW again. So easy. And great for feeding a family as its not faddy. I used to have a 2 finger kit Kat daily then save up my syns for alcohol at the weekend.

awww flashy I remember hating going back, I only work two days a week and altho some weeks it's nice to be in adult company, I'd much rather be at home with my little lady.
I knew I hadn't been doing as well as I should, and like everything to get results you need to put the effort in. so my own fault, I.probably deserved to put on actually, so I perhaps escaped lightly! silly me.

I can only work when my mum isn't day shift (a huge sin on here relying on mum as childcare) and when she's on day shift I won't be able to work, and it falls on half term so result lol.
I've been surprised I've lost to be honest, but I'm beginning to think cutting out the wine midweek will have helped.

I always crave sweet things then. And I have just switched things contraception wise for me and that's played havoc with everything. I know I've certainly had the cravings a lot longer and hope, that's just because hormones are settling down now. If not, I really am going to struggle!
Not feeling positive about weigh in this week. But hoping I've been sensible enough to stay the same if anything. We shall see!

Yeah I'm rubbish at weighing stuff so tend to use the grab and go bit so in the chicken is the lightest Philadelphia as you can have 3 of the little tubs ( come in pack of 4) per day as HE so had one at lunch with prawns and cucumber on cracker bread and then one split between chicken xx
