    Default Day one- It starts with changing the little things...

    So........ did a little grocery shopping today- bought NO sugary soft drinks, instead just got some soda water which I can mix with some lemon. That's a start.I don't want to deprive myself this time, I think that was my downfall last time I tried to lose some weight- moderation is the key and, within reason, I will allow myself what I want but make much healthier versions. Eg, tonight I fancy spaghetti bol (usually a big no no when I'm dieting) but I thought stuff it, I'm having it! So I bought wholemeal pasta and some nice King Island premium beef mince and I'll make a nice low fat sauce to go with it and most importantly, I will serve myself a small portion. Because it's a lifestyle change for me and if I start denying myself my fave foods I'll end up chucking in the towel lie I did last time.Breakfasts I plan on having a boiled egg, mushrooms, tomato and instead of butter spread on white toast, I have avocado and wholemeal or multigrain bread. That or a healthy cereal. My two fave top filling and satisfying foods are for sure eggs and the humble banana. And.NO.ALCOHOL!8 weeks ladies, I'm with yas! Since having DD a little over 6 months ago I have had trouble shaking 10 (ish) kilos.... So for now, my aim is lose 10kg in 8 weeks. That would be FABULOUS! I might have a stray few to lose after that, but, one goal at a time.Here we go.......

    That's a fantastic plan! I looooove wholemeal pasta, it doesn't get gluggy like white pasta, either!

    Yep it's a refreshing change to water. You can also jazz it up with slices of lime and mint leaves. (And then it's only a shot glass of vodka away from being a Mojito! )

    Well I made the whole family spaghetti bol for dinner and both DH and DS initially turned their noses up at my suggestion of using wholemeal pasta. But I did anyway and they both LOVED it! I was really surprised as I could hardly tell the difference and if anything it was much tastier than usual
    And Goblin Queen, you were right- no sticky/gluggy bits at all.
    I felt like something sweet/chocolatey after dinner and popped an Up and Go in the freezer and it was delish and totally hit the craving

    Isn't it just the best! I will say, it's harder to twirl on a fork lol but it's a thousand times tastier!

    That is a genius idea!!! Fairly healthy and a great substitute for ice cream!

    Up N Go's contain about 3 different kinds of sugar. Not at all healthy

    ETA: just pulled brother's up n Go's out of fridge to check: cane sugar, wheat maltodextrin, fructose and inulin, also corn syrup solids. So hey I was wrong, there's 5 different kinds for a total of 20% sugar per 250ml serving time to find a new treat
