A day in the life of a weightwatcher

Although I supppose Weightwatcher is technically a diet, it's also a lifestyle choice. You learn to pick healthy options but that doesn't mean you can't have the odd naughty treat once in a while! This is a typical day's food for me:

Honey cheerios - 4 propoints
During the week I tend to buy one box of cereal and keep it at work. It's far to early to stuff my face when I get up!
Fruit - 0 proppoints
Does anyone else seem to get mid morning munchies around 11am? I think because I sit at a desk all day I constantly think about food - doesn't help that I sit next to the kitchen! I try to eat at least two portions of fruit a day.

Tomato and feta omlette - 7 propoints
I've gone off sandwiches recently and prefer something a little more filling. I don't like to waste more than 8 propoints on lunch as I like a few chocolate treats towards the end of the day. This filled a lovely little hole.
Chocolate minroll and Caramel wafer - 4 propoints
Everyone who works in the office knows that chocoate is very much a necessity! Around 3pm I tend to need a bit of a sugar fix and these do the the jobs quite nicely.
Quorn chilli burritto and rocket - 8 propints
For just 8 propoints this was such a filling dinner! I'll be eating quorn more often as it's so low in points meaning you can have much more. Always a good thing in my book!
All this food adds up to 23 propoints. I'm allowed 26 points a day but like to keep a couple left over incase I fancy a little treat after dinner. Light babybels are currently my favourite - they're only a point!

Baby it's cold outside

Black cloche hat: Marks and Spencer
Grey faux fur trimmed cape: Marks and Spencer
Grey bodycon midi dress: Primark
Black long sleeved t-shirt: Primark
Black bow short wellies: Market
Black Bayswater: Mulberry
Rose gold oversized watch: Next (Birthday gift)

Ah the dreaded snow has arrived. You can blame that for the dark pictures - these were taken about 3pm! I wore this for my sister in laws 21st birthday meal at the weekend. I wanted to wear something a bit dressy but also weather appropriate. I think I just about managed it. I brought this amazing cape with my birthday money last week. My boyfriend has quipped that I look like Gandalf the Great but i'm ok with that. At least i'll be cosy in the cold! I always feel like i've taken a step back into yesteryear with this hat on. Just not too keen on the hat hair afterwards.

How have you been coping in the snow? I personally can't wait until it all melts away and everything ccan go back to normal. Getting to work is a complete nightmare!


Weightwatcher's friendly breakfast - recipe


It may be cliche but breakfast really is the most important part of the day. It can help kickstart your metabolism for the day as well as stop that dreaded mid-morning snacking. I read somewhere that you should try to eat within 45 minutes of waking up. My normal breakfast routine consists of a boring bowl of cereal when I get to work. It's the easiest thing I can manage after that hour commute into the city. But when it comes to the weekend I like to get a bit more adventurous with my morning routine. As I usually like to have a bit of a lay in so I tend to have a a larger breakfast. A brunch if you like. Here's one of my favourite recipes. The great thing is it's very quick to make - great if you have a rumbling tummy!

Feta and tomato omlette with a propoints value of 7
Two eggs
8 cherry tomatoes
Season black pepper to your taste
Three sprays of fry lite
40 grams of Feta Cheese 

1. Chop the tomatoes in half

2. Crack the eggs into a jug and whisk. Season with as much black pepper as you want. Crumble the cheese into the jug.

3. Crumble the feta into the jug and mix in. Spray the fry lite into a frying pan and pour the egg mixture into the saucepan
4. Position the tomatoes as you like.

5. Cook for around 4-5 minutes and the pop under the grill until the top is starting to brown. Doesn't it look yummy?!
