Last week I lost 2 kg - I was really chuffed with this - but this week was a little more realistic. I lost 0.5 kg which doesn't sound much, until I rationalise it to say, that's an average of 1.5kg per week, or 3 lbs! That sounds better! Especially as I was out on Friday night, with no thought of calories, and have been having a sneaky glass of wine or two at other times.

I've been keeping up with exercise too - since last Wednesday, I've cycled (stationary bike) twice, gone for a 4 km walk plus done 15 minutes Big Effort on a StairMaster. Actually, that sounds a bit pathetic written down! I'll have to do more.

Still: here's a recipe for tonight's dinner: TURKEY & MUSHROOM RAGOUT
250g turkey escalope/breast fillet                      75ml chicken stock
1 chopped garlic clove                                      2 tbsp red fat crème fraiche
1/2 tbsp mustard                                               1 onion, finely chopped
100g mushrooms, sliced                                     1/2 tsp cornflour mixed with 1/2 tbsp water

  • Cut the turkey into strips. Spray a pan with fry-light & cook the strips over a moderate heat for 4 - 5 minutes
  • Add the garlic, onions & mushrooms. Season & cook for a further 4-5 minutes
  • Pour in the stock & bring to boil. Then stir in the crème fraiche and mustard. Bring back to the boil, & stir in the cornflour mix. Simmer, stirring, for another 4-5 minutes until thickened and smooth.
  • Serve sprinkled with parsley. 
On SW this is 2 syns on the Red plan, and 9  on the green.
My Fitness Plan says this is (approx) 648 calories a portion when served with 75g of dry weight basmati rice.
