Slimming World Syn Free Tortilla Doritos!

Hello lovelies,I did a shout out on Twitter earlier this evening on whether anyone would be interested in a recipe for Syn Free Slimming World Tortilla style Doritos.

I follow the Extra Easy plan so this is totally free.You can vary this recipe for italian style, indian, mexican or plain.

What you will need :

Dried lasagne sheets (each sheet makes 6 crisps so judge how many you want to use)
Salt
Fry Light misting spray
Seasoning of choice.

Pre heat your oven to 200 degrees.


In a large saucepan, boil the full lasagne sheets until they are cooked, soft and floppy.

Drain and rinse with cold water until cool enough to handle. Make sure as much water is removed as possible.
Sprinkle each side of the boiled pasta with salt lightly and then your flavouring of choice. For italian, use garlic salts and herbs, for indian, use curry powder and for a mexican twist I like to use the Nando’s Peri Peri. It’s about £1.99 for a 90g shaker.

I cut each sheet in to 3, and then turn each of those 3 in to triangle dorito shapes.

Place on a non stick over tray and spray finely and lightly with Fry Light. 


Bake for 10-15 minutes, turning half way through.



 

Depending on your brand of pasta, you can play around with timings and whether you use Fry Light or not. It’s entirely down to you.

I have a recipe for Syn Free garlic battered mushrooms and garlic dip next if anyone is interested in that?

Fit not Fat 2012 Challenge

Hello Lovelies, 
 
As some of you may remember, I embarked on a healthy living plan last year called Fit not Fat… I even coined that name myself!

Well I did quite well on it, making healthy choices and increasing my activity. Sadly over the winter months my work load drastically increased with both the day job, the business and finding time to write lovely little blog posts for all you lovelies! Add to that the dark nights, cold weather and well you can guess the rest… the care and attention slipped slightly.

As a bit of a back story, I lost over 6 stone when I got married and did it in about 6-10 month (I did some maintaining!) and now I’m back on the diet bandwagon. Previously I had lots of success with Weight Watchers but the plan just doesn’t fit with mine and my husbands lifestyle at the moment so we have moved on to something new.

We don’t gorge on takeaways and convenience food, we do eat pretty healthy, lots of veg and fruit and make all our meals from scratch but obviously not healthy enough eh!

On Twitter, I was recently speaking to the most beautiful Kellie (@bigfashionista – go check her blog out, it’s all kind of awesome) and we were comparing our coping methods for getting through the tough weeks. Kellie said she felt better by chatting about her weight loss journey on her blog and I said I quite felt the opposite. I feel it’s easier to deal with those tough days when you NEED to have 2 packets of crisps if no one knows you’re dieting to give you crap.

This got me thinking over night and I thought I’d give it a try, talking about my diet journey here on my website.
 
I am following the Slimming World Extra Easy plan as I find it fits my lifestyle perfectly.
 
In my first week I have lost 7lb. I realise this isn’t going to be attainable every week but I would like to aim for 4lb a week as I have a LOOOOT to lose!

Other than good health I have picked 2 motivation points to spur me on on my journey. I don’t have a set weight I want to be as I think it’s just figures and numbers but I do have a dress size in mind and I’ll stop once I reach it.

Motivation point #1 : Husband has promised to get his first tattoo when I lose 5 stone (a fair target, and a long story)

Motivation point #2 : I’m going to New York in October and I plan on being a lot skinnier so I can fill 2 suitcases with new clothes (Don’t tell the husband please ok?)

Motivation point #3 : If I reach my personal goal, I’m going to buy myself a new Mulberry handbag. I could buy one now but it will be more rewarding to challenge myself right?

My weigh in days are Thursdays so I shall try to remember to keep you all posted

Day 1 in the Trampy Lady house…..

So, here we go then. My first entry in to my new blog!! Eee how exciting is this!
 
Let’s give you a bit of background, I am 27, weigh more than I should and I’m slightly neurotic but thanks to the encouragement from “Radio Man”, “Long Suffering Friend” and my husband who will now be known as “The Wife” here I find myself.
 
I need somewhere to chronicle my journey to being a lady (queue Little Britain sound bites) to keep me on the straight and narrow and hopefully review any products, treatments, brands I find along the way that’s helped me or amazed me as a lot of this will all be new to me, and probably new to quite a few other people out there too. It also means ‘LSF’ no longer needs to listen to me whinge in jealousy at her latest TUKs or pretty going out skirts! *shakes a jealous fist*
I’m a tom boy, buy more leopard print than is healthy and obsessed with all things 1950s. I’m heavily pierced and have a few tattoos. This is not a good combination, trust me. I can’t walk in heels, I am not lady like enough to wear skirts and my handbags scream “circus clown” more than demure grown up chic and none of my bras match my knickers either. I am pretty obsessive over my hair and make up though. I’ve learnt I have to be after years of skin break outs, scalp blisters and straw like hair!

I’m stuck in a rut in my late 20s, No longer able to pull off the baggy jeans, pink mohawk and  clubbing 4 nights a week… not quite ready to let that go in exchange for pearls and twinsets either yet. So as I type, I’m in hippy limbo without a clue on where to go next !!!

The big 3-0 is my lady like deadline. By the time I hit 30 I hope to : 
 
1) Have beautifully healthy shiny bouncy hair in a natural(ish) colour. REMEDY – stop DIY bleaching my hair to a platinum-esque colour and condition more. Stop home cutting too.
2) Be groomed and have healthy nourished skin. REMEDY – Start actually using something more than water and baby wipes to take care of my super sensitive skin. Stop being a pikey and actually pay some money out for decent brands instead of shite in nice bottles.
3) Be able to spend a full day in high heels. REMEDY – Get practising!
 
4) Lose tonnes of weight and be a super svelte glamorous 50s pin up. REMEDY – Weight Watchers here I come baby!


5) Stop swearing like a drunk sailor and having more decorum. REMEDY…. not a clue LOL 



I have just over 3 yr and my journey starts here, and boy do I feel like Eliza Doolittle …….
