Update: Week 38

Hey ho, I managed to lose 1.2kgs this week after all that grumbling on Monday! It's amazing what you can do when you don't go out during the week! GB was in Bunbury all week on a training course so I didn't have to put any thought into cooking at all and it was great!! I managed to get to the gym on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday doing 30-60mins cardio and threw in a few weights on Monday too. So I'm very close to my Xmas goal! Today's my work christmas lunch which fingers crossed goes down ok, as I'm still having a few probs in that area. Here's the menu:

Entree's (shared)
warm turkish bread with oil, balsamic and dukkah  (Staying away from this for sure)
herb and garlic pizza bread    (I might give a small piece of this a go)
grilled cacciatore sausage      (No way hozay)

Main (choice of)
beetroot risotto, creamy fetta, spinach   (I think this is what I'll go for)
sesame crusted salmon, rice noodles, mango & pickled ginger salad  (Don't like mango or ginger)
peri peri spiced chicken, roast sweet potato, orance scented cous cous, yoghurt dressing   (Don't like spicy food)
black angus scotch fillet, roast baby potatoes, green beens    (I'm not sure how steak will go down)

Dessert (choice of)
caramelised pear & rhubarb strudel, cinnamon anglaise
choc mint brownie, pistachio crumble, vanilla bean icecream      (Hell yeah!)

So it should be fun today. Hopefully the drama that has been happening (bitching women) will subside for lunch at least!

Thanks for all your comments, keep them coming!

Stay well,

Em :)


  1. That risotto sounds devine. Definitely what I'd be going for!

    And Yay for losing 1.2kg this week! What is your goal for x-mas??
