What I Ate Wednesday!

By Ourbabyblog @OurBabyBlogx
I'm super excited to be starting a What I Ate Wednesday series, especially as my diet has changed so much in the past few months! If you didn't know, Ben & I completely changed our lifestyle to be healthier and to lose weight for Christmas, so we have now both lost 21lbs each! We've been super strong minded and started off the first month cutting out takeaways, cakes, sweets, fizzy drinks, sugar in tea, bread and bacon! The hardest part for me were the takeaways, I love a Domino's pizza with all the sides and I could eat a Chinese every single day if I could stay slim, although I was never in the overweight section, I just didn't feel good about myself, I didn't want to leave the house at some points either so that's when I knew I had to do something about it!

We actually ended up treating ourselves for Ben's birthday yesterday and had a Domino's pizza, it was amazing, like heaven in your mouth, I had a bit of everything, and no I didn't feel guilty, and despite what some people think, you DO NOT gain weight from ONE treat meal! :)  We both enjoyed every mouthful but have returned to our normal eating now, so today's menu looks a little sparse to compensate for it :) So here is what I ate today, with descriptions underneath of what everything is :) What I Ate Wednesday!
Breakfast Big bowl of Golden Nuggets Half a banana I know there a lot of healthier options when it comes to breakfast but I can't completely eat 100% healthy all the time! Plus they're sooooo yummy!

Dinner Weight Watchers Spaghetti Bolognese Birds Eye Mixed Veg Roasted Veg

I wanted to load up on the veg today, can you tell!? Snacks Red Apple Weight Watchers Fromage Frais 
I tend to cook 6 out of 7 days of the week and leave one day for a Ready Meal, we picked the healthier choices of either Weight Watchers or Quorn so we both stay within our targets, and they are surprisingly delicious too and have generous portions! I try and add lots of veg and snack on fruit throughout the day to keep my energy up! Exercise As I was making up for the domino's yesterday, I took a 20 minute walk with Abbie, had a 10 minute jog AND 15 mins of Zumba! 

I'll be doing a what i ate wednesday every week now so you can see what kinda things I eat! I also have a big post scheduled for next week where I talk in more detail about the diet and weight loss as well as exercise too, so keep an eye out :) x
