A random thought to cook Lamb chops with red onions, carrots and wedge potatoes in one pot in the oven. Something I should have attempted sooner, yet previously cooked chops etc in the grill. The meal was a great success and both Liv and I polished off our plates within minutes.
I never meal plan as such however I do rely heavily on online shopping. Not only is it a godsend for me with regards to time, I have also found it has helped me greatly with my Weight Watchers journey… it also helps me save money!
It’s great to shop online, whilst sipping a cup of tea without the hustle and bustle of trolley wars! I have found that the full range of Weight Watchers products can easily be searched for no matter which online grocer I use.
The temptation to purchase extra treats and generally throw yummy food into my trolley is taken away. When I did go shopping I would always use a large trolley and mostly fill it – a good tip is to use a smaller trolley or even a basket, that way you will be less likely to fill it! I am a marketer’s dream, in the fact that if I do see a beautifully packaged chocolate bar with bright flashing lights catching my attention, I will throw it in my trolley without question. The Weight Watchers App on my Android phone is extremely helpful as it enables me to quickly check Pro Points values of food items before I add them to my shop!
Since moving to religiously ordering my shopping online every week my weekly shop has easily been reduced by £30 a week and that even includes delivery! Ocado are fantastic for fresh foods, a good range of vegetables and fruit to accompany any meal and the £2.99 a month delivery pass for deliveries between Tuesday and Thursday saves me a fortune! I just with the Weight Watchers product range was larger… Ocado take note… I LOVE the Weight Watchers Caramel Mallow Wafers!
It still surprises me how easily (without grumbling too much!) and quickly (immediately!) I have adapted to the diet. I am still enjoying all the healthy food and the numerous pints of water each day. Giving up fizzy drinks and alcohol has been really easy, even though you can have those in moderation on the diet, I choose not to waste my valuable points on the drinks.
Shopping smart has meant I have been wasting away (in the waist department!) and not wasting money, freeing up more money for Liv and I to go on trips together.
Just a quick post this week as I really do need to get back to The Shred, wish me luck!
