Still positive…..gained 1½lbs

Lou + 1½ lbs = 10lbs to go  Jo + 2lbs  = 12lbs to go

Booooo….I gained weight but my body is getting smaller……Woohoo!!
The clothes in my wardrobe no longer fits and my knickers are falling off so I am still pushing forward with my goal despite what the scales say.

I’ve started jogging in the mornings to get myself prepared for the 5k Race for Life in July at Regents Park…. hopefully I will be fit enough to bet my sister this year.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

I hope you are all enjoying the recipes, today I fancy something quick and easy

Serves: 1
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes


2 shallots
1 garlic clove
250g extra lean minced beef
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Fry Light
4 rashers of bacon, lean
60g wholemeal bread roll
2 x 25g Dairylea Light Cheese Slices

1. Peel and finely chop the shallots and peel and crush the garlic. Place the shallots, garlic, beef and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl, season well and combine with your fingers.

2. Divide into two portions and shape each into a burger. Spray with Fry Light and grill on each side for 5-6 minutes (or until cooked to your liking). Meanwhile, remove all visible fat from the bacon and grill.

3. Slice the bread roll in half and place two bacon rashers on the bottom half. Top with a burger and a slice of cheese. Place the bread roll lid on top and serve.

Tip: Add 6 Syns if not using wholemeal bread and a further 6 Syns if not using cheese as Healthy Extra.  This recipe is not suitable for home freezing.
