Pin it, did it: banana bread

Banana bread

Hi Frenchies!
It’s been a long time since I posted a “Pin it, did it” post 😉
I was very active this morning, after a half an hour work-out I decided to make some banana bread! Yummie!
My favoriete recipe is one I’ve found on Pinterest (of course, whereelse?) It’s also the first recipe I’ve made with the US metrics system ( you know, cup instead of gram of ml) and I found it very easy to make.
The recipe is not mine, I use hers. I have made some changes or I should beter say I add a few ingredients. My personal touch is some cinnamon and ginger. I like how it combines with the banana and the blueberries.
Every one in my home loves this bread, it nevers stay longer on the counter 😉
For the Weight Watchers addict, one loaf counts 12 slides and one slide is 4 points.
Let me know if you have tried this recipe and what’s your secret ingredient 😉

Weigh in Tuesday- week 29 2015

HI Frenchies!
A week has passed by and it’s Weigh in Tuesday.
So first, the stats for this week:

weigh in week 29

Yes, you read it wel, I’ve lost over my goal of 1 kg/week!! But to say the truth it doesn’t feel really good as it should. I haven’t done as much exercises as I planned, I ate more than I planned but I also learned a few things about me.
1. I am, actually, not a runner. I did enjoy it much more before I got a child and since then I have found myself looking for excuses not to go. Something tells me I should look for another fysical activity.
2. Last wednesday I had terrible stomach ache, all day. I felt horrible all day but due to this discomfort I wanted to eat sweet food like chocolate and cake. Odd right? Or maybe not so. I realize I had difficulty to accept I wasn’t at easy. And grabbing to food is my way to cope with it. So I decide to do some ready on emotional eating.
Anyway, I have lost my goal so I decide to look at the bright side and do even better this week!
Up to the next weightloss!!!

Weigh in Tuesday- week 28-2015

Hi Frenchies!
Last week I have decided to track my weightloss journey weekly. I have to say last week was a very strange week, it was hot, hotter hottest! We reached temperatures of ver 30 degrees Celsius! It’s very high for our little frog country as we call it.
My stats for this week:
 week 28 2015
As you can see I drop 400gr. It might not be much but due to the hot weather I didn’t exercise and ate more salty stuff. nevertheless, I’m happy!!
Weightloss wise: I came to the conclusion that if I loose 1kg a week, I will reach my goal before the end of the year!! Therefore I made a plan:
  • running with my workgroup on wednesday and alone on monday
  • jazz dancing on thursday
  • yoga at work once in two week
  • follow my Weight Watchers plan
One kilo a week sound very reasonalbe and do-able! Now i have to go and do it!

do it now

 

To our successes!
Love,
Miss Frenchy

Weigh in Tuesday- week 27 2015

Hi Frenchies,
My meeting with Weight watchers are on Tuesday morning. As I work on Tuesday once in two weeks, I can’t go to the meeting each week. And the last past month I haven’t been there at all. But ok, I went today.
I was pleased to see that my weight was stable, which is also some kind of achievement, don’t you think?
So here are the stats:

Weigh in tuesday

 

This week I also want to sport more, on Wednesday I will go for a run and saturday I’ll plug on the Playstation and have a fitness session with Mel B.
I’ll keep you posted and in between you can follow me on my Instagram.

Starting over and now for good

Hi Frenchies,
It’s been a while since I’ve place a post here. And it’s a pity because I like to write and most of all share.
I have started my journey through weight loss last year after becoming a mom of a joyfull boy. It went very well at first, I even lost 12 kg but I gained back 6 since the start of 2015. I have always wanted to lose weight and by flag I could. I often get cold feet I could manage to achieve my goals as silly as it may sound.
Last night the husband and I had a good conversation and I came to the conclusion I need to take ownership of my weight and my life. I have to finally create MY life to the best not only for me but for the husband and even more for our boy!
So, after a few prayers to the Lord, I have decided I can make it happen.
I want to take control of my weight using Weight Watchers and being more active (read going to dance class).
My starting point?

Starting point

my goals? -23 kg
So yeah! I can use all the support there is out there.
What can you expect from me? Well, I will post my weigh in once a week as well as my planning meals.
Are you with me???

Failure is not final?

failure is not final

I found this quote on line as i was looking for a nice picture/quote about Failure. I feel like I’m in this place, Failure. I’m tired, quite undecided about what I want and what I can and my weight watchers fight is losing… I’m kind of down. I want to give up on my goal to be healthy, slim and active. Let me just be fat and on the couch 😦
On the other hand I’m not quite ready to totally give up. I think sometimes life happens, you get tired and you lose track and motivation. Maybe I should just be more kind to myself, more comprehensive and give myself some time to get some energy and get my motivation back.
While looking over the net for quote on failure I just came very positive quote accross. This one “Failure is not Final” resonates in me. It seems to be that Failure has nothing to do with something negative because from failure you can learn and get wiser to succeed.
So yes Failure is not final, today I will accept that life is not that fun and easy but tomorrow I will go to my Weight Watchers meeting 😉
Can you relate to this feeling? I’d like to know 🙂
Love,

 

 

The first kilo is off!!

The first 1,5 kg to be precise! As I have mentioned in an earlier post I want to continue my Weight Watchers journey in 2015 and it’s promising! I’m quite happy that it’s that easy to get back on track after the holiday 🙂

Since I’ve entered the WW way of life I have looked over Pinterest , Instagram and the web for ideas for recipes. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I follow a French girl Olivia which post a lot of great pictures of her meals. She had a blog on Blopgspot but she also started a new blog/website on wordpress.

If you are French of able to read French I can recomend you fo start follwoing her! She has great recipes and she has a nice way to write full of humour. You can find her here.

A new week has already started over here and tonight I’m going to run for the 2sd time this week! I made a promise to myself to treat myself a nice running gear if I’m able to train 4 weeks on a row!!

Thanks for passing by to my blog!

See you soon Frenchies!
