Well it's abit late but we had a lovely Christmas :)

The kids were made up with all there presents abd they got some money to spend aswell :)

The cat even wanted to help open the presents! Lol.

We had Christmas dinner at my mums with all the family and boxing day we stayed at home and I cooked. Wasn't as good as my mums dinner but it was ok :) nothing beats your mums roast dinner though :)

It's new years eve now, looking forward to getting back to my diet now And normal eating!

I wonder what 2012 will hold for us, something nice I hope as this year has had its ups and downs!

Ive moved to a nicer house/area in June and I've dropped 2 clothes sizes this year, the kids are happy and healthy so more ups than downs :)

Happy new year everyone xx

Decided I would try my hand at califlour cheese last night for tea and it was really really yummy :)

Made my own cheese sauce, sprinkled cheese and breadcrumbs on top and yum yum!

Will definatly make it again, healthy ish too full of calcium and 1 of your 5 a day of veg :)

The excitement of a diet, mmmm beans for lunch again lol xx

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Decided to try something different today. Instead of lasagne sheets and sauces out of jars I made my lasagne from scratch.

I used aubergine instead of lasagne sheets and made my white sauce from scratch and used toms, garlic, onion and chillis for my red sauce.

It was really nice. Defo make it again.

Been watching river cottage veg and have been inspired to try new things have ordered the cook book too from the show.

Mmmm yummy could eat it again! Xx

Well the scales have been stepped on and i've lost another 4lbs so my total weight loss since september is 1 stone and 4 pounds!! 

I can even JUST fit into some of my size 12 pants so if i loose another half a stone i should be in them, really made up!! Making me want to set my goal a little further as i've never been a size 10 but that might be a bit too ambitious!!

Need to get some exercise done and tone my flab up LOL
