Weekly weigh in - week 5

09:37 Jemma Taylor-Smith 9 Comments

This week my weight has stayed the same, which I'm pretty happy with. I ate loads last weekend, due to it being Mother's Day, and although I've been pretty good this week, we had a chip shop dinner on Thursday night due to a crazy day at work and me not getting in until late.

So, I now have less than two weeks to lose 3lbs to get me to 9st 7lbs before we go on holiday. I'm hoping this will provide the motivation I need.

I've already upped my exercise. I ran 4 miles on Saturday and 3 yesterday. I'm spinning tonight and I'm also hoping to run tomorrow night.

I'm also planning my meals in advance, so I know exactly what I'm eating. I find that if I don't do this I'm easily tempted by the naughty option. Here's this week's plan:

Monday (Spinning)
Breakfast - 2 Weetabix with skimmed milk
Lunch - Jacket potato with beans and salad and a fat free yogurt
Snack - Satsuma
Dinner - Cottage pie and veg
Snack - Mango

Tuesday (Running)
Breakfast - 2 Weetabix with skimmed milk
Lunch - Chicken pasta salad and a fat free yogurt
Snack - Banana
Dinner - Chicken fajita veg and rice with low fat soured cream (2 syns)
Snack - Fruit

Wednesday
Breakfast - 2 slices of wholemeal bread (from a 400g loaf) toasted with low fat marg (1 syn)
Lunch - Mug shot, crisps (3.5 syns) and fat free yogurt
Snack - Fruit
Dinner - Cheesy veg pasta bake

Thursday
Breakfast - Banana, blueberries and fat free Greek yogurt
Lunch - Low fat cheese and ham sandwich, crisps (3.5 syns), fat free yogurt
Snack - Fruit
Dinner - Jacket potato and ham salad
Snack - Mini Twister (2.5 syns)

Friday
Breakfast - 2 Weetabix with skimmed milk
Lunch - Jacket potato with beans and salad
Snack - Coffee and banana
Dinner - Chilli with rice and low fat soured cream (2 syns)
Snack - Curly Wurly (6 syns)

Saturday (Running)
Breakfast - Fruit with fat free yogurt
Lunch - Batchelors Super Pasta
Snack - Coffee and fruit
Dinner - Planning to go to friends for dinner, so we'll see!

Sunday
Breakfast - 2 slices of wholemeal bread toasted with marg (1 syn)
Lunch - Chicken pasta salad and fruit
Dinner - Roast turkey dinner (allowing 10 syns)

  3. Love the planning ;) think it's so much easier when you're watching your weight to plan each meal as then no sneaky snacks come and throw you off course (or less sneaky snacks!). Good luck with your week!

  6. You're doing really well Jemma. You'll get those 3lb's off no trouble I'm sure,. I went to week 3 weigh in tonight and I'd lost 2lb so that's 6.5lb in total now. Slightly gutted that I couldn't shift another half lb to get my half stone award but it was a big ask. I'll get it next week though. 12lb left to target. Are you going to keep going when you've hit target? x
