Well, it's a super hot steamy Friday afternoon and I'm looking forward to going out tonight with the hubby - think we'll find a band somewhere in town.......I'm also looking forward to having a glass of red wine after spending the past week on water, plain tea and coffee.
If I'm honest, I actually found this past week really easy, food wise....planning? well that was a little harder for me - I'm so busy most of the time and I haven't managed to finished all the chores, cooking, food planning etc until gone 11pm most evenings, which is a bit of a nuisance as I like to relax in front of the tv for a while before bed, so I've missed that a lot this week.
I've decided that I really like SP; it feels really natural and I love the fact that I can have 2 healthy extra B's as well as my A choice and I'm not missing pasta, rice or potatoes at all......I can't even say I've missed bananas or yogurts much either. I am however fancying some sweet potato........and although this isn't a speed food, I can still have it in moderation whilst following the SP plan - so I'll certainly be incorporating sweet potatoes into a couple of my meals this week.
Also, I read somewhere - although I fail to find it in my slimming world book - that SP-er's should have one regular sized yogurt per day after the first week of SP........I may have to message my consultant about that one to double check.
As you might have guessed, I have decided to continue with SP this week, just maybe adding a few non-speed/protein foods (ie: the sweet potato) into my meals.........and, as already mentioned: I'm having wine today (yay!), so that'll be extra syns for today's allowance - I'll just run it off tomorrow :) - I may also have some dark chocolate at some point too. #rebel
But any-whos, I weighed in last night and here are the results: 9st 8.5lbs so that's 2.5lbs off !!
Week 1: 0
Week 2: - 2.5lb
I'm looking forward to the next week, I'll continue to post my daily food diaries - and I'll do my weekly round-up and weigh-in next Friday - fingers crossed for another good loss next week. I'm normally the type of person to lose 0.5lb per week if I'm lucky, so a 2.5lb loss for me is immense!!
