I have to admit that there are occasions on which I struggle a little to think of something to say in these weekly updates. Usually there’s something. This week I’m just going to admit I don’t have much and tell you instead that I made muffins yesterday:
Making muffins may not seem like a good idea when I’m on a diet but hear me out. The current office tradition where I work is that on birthdays people usually bring in doughnuts or some other treat. Last couple of years I’ve bought Krispy Kreme donuts. They are nice, but very sweet and not to everyone’s taste. So this year I thought I’d make some muffins. So these were a ‘dry run’. I made 6 chocolate and 6 toffee and apple.
Both are very nice – I’ve had two of each so far. Don’t worry I am fitting this in to my daily allowance. The chocolate ones are 216 calories and the apple and toffee are 267. That’s about what I might have for an evening desert plus I had one with my lunch today. It’s also a lot less than the 450ish ones I had from Tescos one time – though those were bigger.
I deliberately made half quantities so that I wouldn’t have too many needing eating up. I reckon by the weekend I’ll have finished them off without going over my calorie limit.
Oh, and I hit that 50-50 point this week:
Weekly loss: 0.6kg (1.3lb)
Total loss: 34kg (75lb or 5st 5lb)
To target: 33.9kg (75lb or 5st 5lb)
Current weight: 110.1kg (242lb or 17st 4lb)
