I got some new boobies on Thursday. The pain is so much worse than I was expecting so I have been constantly drugged up to my eyeballs since the surgery. My lack of movement means the only thing I can really do all day is watch TV and play on my MacBook.
As I haven't even been capable of looking after myself, my Mum has kindly taken my kiddies for a few days to give me time to heal. This has left me with so much spare time I don't know what to do. Usually I'd use the time to cook and clean and get things prepared for the coming weeks, but obviously my limited movement rules that out, so I literally just have to relax. It's harder than I thought it would be!
I also re-joined Weight Watchers online. After months of sitting stable at 52kg, I realised I actually needed to get off my bum and make some sort of effort if I want to be slim and perky for my wedding. This meant I had two options: A. I could continue eating whatever I want and start exercising for an hour a day; or B. I could start eating healthier and take note of portion sizes. Given I was about to get a boob job meaning my movement would be limited, and I barely have any time with my babies as it is, I decided to go with option B. I also decided that Weight Watchers would work best for me as I don't have to give any of my favourite foods up.
Anyhoo, given all my extra time I thought I'd do something semi-productive and went through the Thermomix EDC and converted all the recipes to Weight Watchers ProPoints. I'm positing a link to it here on my blog because perhaps it might come in handy for other weight watching thermomixers!
A few things to note:
- I worked out the points based on the ingredients, not the nutrition information provided in the book;
- The ingredients were counted using the full-fat versions of everything (i.e. milk = full cream milk NOTT light/skim milk etc);
- Where there were multiple options for ingredients I used the first option (i.e. 1 tbs raw or rapadura sugar = raw sugar NOT rapadura);
- These recipes tend to use a lot of oil/fat where I don't think it is really needed. You could definitely make these recipes quite a bit healthier with a few little tweaks here and there; and
- I'm human and I make mistakes. If being 100% accurate with your ProPoints count is important to you I would recommend you double checking by using the Weight Watchers recipe builder tool to work out the points yourself.
Without further adieu, here is the link:
