A Brand New Day...

I woke up this morning feeling motivated and thinking that this is going to be a good week! I still feel rough but this can only get better - coughs and colds don't last long! :)

I have filled in my tracker this morning with my breakfast details:-

- Weetabix Minis and Skimmed Milk

- Tea with 1 sugar (which is that silver spoon half stuff)

= 4 points

Not bad!

One thing I am really bad at is planning and tracking - I can plan what I want to eat though the week, but something happens and everything then changes and the rest of the week seems to slide. Plus I also eat things and then as I haven't written them down forget about them and go over my points allowance.

I'm going to be more pro-active and try and think ahead, I can see from the meetings if you make the time and take the effort it does pay off!

Today is going to be low key for me, I have a yoga class at 11.30 and I'm going to do some light training for race for life afterwards. I cooked a Sheppard's pie yesterday, so I don't have to worry about dinner.

I do have a questions for you good cooks out there...? When I was in the kitchen yesterday I found that after adding tinned tomatoes the whole dish seemed, well a bit tasteless to be honest, I had put mixed herbs and some seasoning in there but it didn't seem to make much difference.
I was trying to move on from using the jars of sauce (dolmio/Ragu etc) and do it from scratch - anyone have any suggestions??

Crumble in half a stock cube, Or add loads of pepper and season things! Even if you add salt you're probably having less than whats in a ready made jar!!!
