Cheat days are made of this…


Sorry for the terrible “Sweet dreams” reference in the title, but it’s cheat day and I’m enjoying (most) of the goodies on offer today!

Saturday is burger night. Don’t remember how or why that started, but it’s been burger night for years, with only a few missed burgers per year ha ha! We vary from making our own (well, my fianc√© makes them!) to shop bought. Tonight’s were from Morrisons. Not the best, a bit small, but tasty and so much better than other supermarket offerings.

Terrible picture, yummy bacon cheeseburger!
My fianc√© picked up what looked like a lovely cheesecake, but it ended up being dry, heavy and a bit tasteless. I didn’t eat all of my piece. So annoying when that happens as it’s such a waste of calories !! 

Looks can be deceiving… not good!

Today is also weigh day. It’s not been great, but I still lost some weight… 0.8lbs. I haven’t felt that great all week to be honest. I’ve felt fat and bloated and so at least I lost a little bit of weight and hadn’t actually put any on. It might be a small loss, but I’ll take it. 
I’ve been through our freezer today and cleared out and tidied up. We only need a small food shop this week as we have enough meat to last pretty much the week and we have odd little left over bits of things like sweet potato fries, hash browns, roast potatoes and peppers – you know, when there’s not enough left in the bag for one person, let alone two – I’m going to have a couple of weird mixed up dinners this week and just use things up. I can’t wait to use everything up and be able to start from scratch with meal ideas and stuff. 

Sunday tomorrow… nothing planned. Time to chill before another hectic week at work!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!


Just a normal Saturday & my first weigh in!


Hope you’re having a great weekend so far? 

Saturday is going to be my weigh in day and I’m happy to say that my first weigh in has been a good one. I’ve lost 2.4lbs on my first 5 days of eating better. I may have lost a little bit more if I hadn’t gone out for lunch yesterday and eaten lots of yummy food, but life is for living at the end of the day… I won’t be eating out again for a while now. 

Saturday is also going to be my cheat day. Yay! Anything goes on cheat days. I think it gives me more motivation to eat well through the week if I know that I can have a day where I don’t think about calories or fat or sugar for one day a week and just enjoy the day. 

It’s been a pretty uneventful day today… haircut, lunch with my other half, window shopping, grocery shopping and a bit of chilling out – a great day after a busy week. I’ve got no photos of food from today as I forgot to take any! Still getting used to blogging each day to be honest! But I do have some selfies instead – who doesn’t love a selfie!

Before my haircut… half a fringe that’s way too long!
After – the fringe has been thickened up a little and tamed. Also testing out a new lipstick!

My food diary for today has been grapes for breakfast, a ham & cheese toasty, a lemon tart, a yummy homemade burger and chips and 3 popcorn cookies – 3 was 1 too many, but I wasn’t wasting them and there is no junk food to be left in the house for tomorrow, so I just had to eat it!!

The rest of this evening will consist of a beer and a movie…

Catch up tomorrow!
