Cribs Weigh In Wednesday
Hello I'm Lucy and I blog at Charm About You and in the style of MTV Cribs I'm going to show you inside my fridge!
This week I've only managed to lose one more pound, that's a total of 7 pounds since I joined in with Erin. Good but no cigar. I have 17 more to lose before I'll see a figure I can stomach!
So this week I've done what I consider a 'healthy' shop. Mostly lots of veg. After seeing Megan was making some delicious green smoothies, I decided to give them a go - it's basically loads of spinach in a blender with some other stuff!! You can find some great recipes here.
I made mine this morning with spinach, banana, soya milk and some Spiru-tein powder. Do you know, I've not had an energy slump all day, which can only be a good thing :) I also intend to get some ground flaxseed. I do eats seeds but don't think they'd be too nice in a smoothie!
Looks like this will be my new best friend while I'm on a green monster kick:
Don't you just love my marmite tin?!
Here's what my fridge looks like (it doesn't have arrows and words in it obviously I added those):
And then there's the cupboard, this is what it looks like, I have to put food in like this because it's so small! (hidden behind this lot is lentils, little tins of spaghetti hoops and soup):
To stay on track I've also written a weekly menu. This really helps me stay focused and also use up the food that needs eating first so less waste!
There are some really cute free printable menus that you can print out from smitten blog designs, they have other great stuff too!
Sadly my printer has run out of coloured ink so mine is looking a bit sad! You get the idea though:
And with Buffy looking over it too ;)
Admittedly it's not all totally healthy but we eat with the kids so I do pick some simple options, plus it's winter here so there needs to be some comfort!!
I'm also trying to watch my portions - smaller plates and that kind of thing.
I also intend to do more of these -
(Not Nemo!!) I'm aiming to do pilates everyday, if you want please harass me about that!!
So in the spirit of keeping positive and healthy here's the happiest song I know - let's dance!
If that's just a bit too happy clappy for you, after you've linked up go and read my rant about word verification!! (then go smile and watch the Muppet movie!)
