No Monday morning blues here this week!
Monday was an early start as we headed to North Lincolnshire for a golf break. The hubby beat me both days!!!
I opted for a healthy breakfast in the hotel. This is so hard when we go away as I just love all the pastries.
I lost 3 balls in 3 different water hazards! This was worse than beaten by the hubby!
I think I need to call the fashion police! (Cyber mom’s going to kill me for this! Or at least have my guts for garters!! – one of her sayings! 🤣) But how fabulous is her kitchen looking?!
Helen (sewing and golfing buddy pictured further down) came around last week to re-measure me. I’ve since started work on some new blocks.
My new favourite breakfast.
40g of oats mixed with a sachet of options chocolate drink (or any low calories chocolate instant choc drink), then add a little boiling water to make a cheesecake style base. Allow to cool. Add 150g of 0% fat greek yoghurt, followed by your choice of fresh or frozen berries. Leave in the fridge overnight.
Another alternative which I’ve since made and prefer, is adding 1/2 the sachet of options to the oats then add the water as above. Then instead of using greek yoghurt use Quark and added the other half of the options sachet to make it chocolate flavour, and then add fresh raspberries. (Quark for those who’ve not heard of it is a o% fat cream cheese that’s full of protein).
New windows at work – it was a little draughty…
Thursday night we ate out at the Pizza Express, and H brought his girlfriend. I couldn’t take a picture of her so here’s my healthy pizza instead.
Another healthy lunch at work -scrambled egg in kale and cauliflower soup!
I had a little treat and bought myself the burdastyle magazine. How cool is this jumpsuit! I have quite a collection of jumpsuit patterns now. Is anyone else thinking of #JumpIntoJune this year?
Yesterday it was 17 degrees C!!! So I pegged out for the first time this year.
H was out in the afternoon so spurred on by the sudden turn in the weather we went on the hunt for some new patio furniture. And we saw this contraption……
Today wasn’t quite the same balmy temperatures as yesterday but it was just about warm enough for us to celebrate Mother’s day lunch outside with our new furniture.
Aw…the lovely cyber parents xx
Home made chocolate orange cheesecake.
The base wasn’t healthy at all – butter and digestive biscuits. But the topping was quark, chocolate options, chopped up mandarins, and finished with grated dairy milk and an orange segment.
And finally Helen, another one of my talented friends. She’s just made the Simple Sew Loretta Jewel Neck dress and looks amazing in it!
Weight loss update: I lost another 1 1/2 pounds, that’s 11 pounds in total! Mum lost 2 1/2 and got her 1 stone award! The hubby lost another one and it’s really starting to show!
Just one last thing, in case you’re wondering, I’ve not forgotten about the goodie bag giveaway and will be announcing the winners this week, and getting them posted off. Life and golf and slimming has just got in the way of everything!
