A good start to Day 1 of The Masterclass...

Crunchy-O-Cookies... need perfecting because at the moment they are like cardboard to chew. I did use All-Bran instead of wholemeal Cheerios so that may be the problem. Onwards....
Breakfast - 1/2cup dry wholegrain quick oats with 1 cup skim milk, banana & 2 tspn honey (will cut the oats/milk in half in future as it was too much - Annette recommends 3/4 cup cooked porridge).
Lunch - Tuna and salad plate
Snack - Sundowner apple (a new variety I hadn't tried - delicious!)
Dinner - Chicken & Vegetable Lasagne
Packed with lots of veggies (pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, broccoli and green beans), this was quite a busy recipe with lots of steps and used lots of pans but now I've made it I think I can stream line the method a bit. It was delicious and will definitely have it again. Brianna didn't even find the green beans in it! :)
Week 1 (Day 1 - my weight 73.0 kgs)
I walked for 50 minutes in the morning then when I got home from work and food shopping, I felt hungry so I made a Chicken Noodle Cup-a-Soup. After that I decided to go for another walk as I had time before preparing dinner. So I scooted off for another 30 minute walk around town.
I drank all my 8 glasses of water during the day without feeling too bloated. I had a mandarin for supper so that gave me my 3 pieces of fruit for the day.
Annette's Quote for the day - The secret to success in getting ahead in life is getting started.
Cheers - Joolz

(FYI - I am following the 28 Day weightloss Masterclass as per Annette Sym's Symply Too Good To Be True Book 6 - I may modify the eating plan along the way but I am following Annette's book and being guided by her hints, tips and motivational audio and video messages)


  1. Everything looks so delicious! I seriously would like the recipe for the lasagna, if you want to share!!!
    And good on you for posting your starting weight, because I'm here to tell you that I'm not doin' that for nobody! ;) (probably because I'm almost 20 kgs up on you!)

    You GO girl!

  2. I make porridge with 1/3 cup oats and 1/2 cup skim milk, cooked for 2 min and 10 sec in the microwave, that makes an amount that is just enough to fill me up. I'm still going on my brownie Joolz, but I think I will have to get this book to give me a bit of a kickstart, I do need to streamline myself a bit (some clothes are getting a wee bit tight)

  3. The bran may very well result in a denser result.
    The other tucker looks just delicious!!!!
    I so wish I could eat cannned fish it'd be so easy to whip a snack or mael form it but I just hate fish!!!
    Now the lasagne....Ahhhhh that looks delish!!!!

  4. I love how your starting weight is my goal weight :o)

  5. Well done Joolz, The lasagna looks great and I will make that myself.
    I will try the biscuits too but will have to buy the cheerios.
    Great to see your day went well and keep up the good work:0)

  6. Hi Joolz
    That Lasagna looks delicious.

    Good luck with your weight loss. I'm trying to lose some (well a lot If I'm really honest) but I'm just cutting down on portion sizes etc. The weight is shifting very slowing (I never lose it fast however I do it) so as long as it goes down I'm happy. I'll get there...

  7. I started today too Joolz, I will heartily recommend the chickpea patties, delicious!!!!!

  8. Well Joolz, I done it...I went and bought the book today, looks pretty good, thought I could buy a couple to give as Christmas presents.

    It is a very popular book so the young lady at the newsagent said. Lots of people had been in and purchased it.

    Thanks for sharing some of the recipes.

    And I need to get off my butt and start walking again!!
