Oooh that pie looks delish. How did you make the sauce?

Its easy peasy :)

Melt 25g butter then add the carrot and leek (I normally pop in some mushrooms too but I didnt have any last night) cook those - don't let them brown- for about 10-15mins until soft, add a table spoon of flour and cook for 1 minute, then add 400ml of stock gradually until you have a think sauce, cook that for another 10 mins, add 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard and 3 tablespoons of cream (I don't use that much cream - but that's personal taste) stir and the add the chicken (the recipe uses cooked chicken but obviously you won't be putting that in!)

Pop it all in a dish, get a sheet of filo, lay it on a tea towel brush lightly with veggie oil and scrunch over the top (I use 2 sheets per pie)

Stick it in the oven 180 fan 200 otherwise for about 20 mins until the filo is golden.

Then gobble it all up :)

Mmmm. I reckon a bit of creme fraiche instead of cream would work and be healthier too. I think i'll veggie fy that and make it next wk :D

I've definately used creme fraiche in a similar sauce before but we're going back yrs here... I remember it being very plain so you need to season well and make sure there is flavour. A spoonful of pesto would be fab (green or red), if you subbed out the mustard.

Tell you what else would be fab - really soft chunks of butternut squash. Would make it all creamy and gooey. mmmm

Ha, seems like you need to make this pie soon!

I think next time I'll use wholegrain instead of dijon mustard, see how that turns out.

How much do you reckon is attributed to the dvd and how much to food, how careful were you? Just intrigued...

I'd say its mostly all dvd, but I am careful over what I eat and try and do 40:30:30 carbs, protein, fat.

Woo woo that's awesome! If I were you I'd try to maintain your weight now and not aim for weight loss. you've done fantastic :D


Whether I like it or not I seem to maintain anyway :lol: I think if this has taught me anything its that the scale doesnt really matter as I've lost a pound or so but my shape has changed more than that suggests.

...and that your body is at it's happy weight. :)

There's a food blogger that went a step too far last yr (I've posted about her before) and she's messed up her periods now as a result. Just food for thought. ;)

L I honestly couldnt take weight loss that intensely, I love food too much! Week days are for being good, getting 5 a day and exercising and weekends are for having fun, eating crisps and sleep!

I only manage to get on here Fridays and the weekend, and everytime I read your blog I am inspired to crack out the p90x (I think you should try that next!!!). I don't do it as much as I should as most of the sessions are about an hour which I don't have time for, so I've been on amazon and purchased RI30, I can only dream of having a tum like yours in 30 days, I guess time will tell!
Whatever you do next, keep your blog going please, it is truly inspiring!!!! x

MrsD you look A-MA-ZING! There is a massive difference and you definitely no longer have that muffin top (not that you had much of one to start with). You should be extremely proud of yourself :D

Well done on your macro splits as well, I'm trying to keep mine at 50/25/25 (more carbs for the stupid amount of cardio I do) and struggling with that.

Yay Cheryl :D I hope Mr Amanda manages to get it working for you. Have you done 30 day shred before? I did level 3 of that the other day and it did nothing for me at all this is so much better! Although last night on level 1 I might have been shouting out on the chair squat flies to get through them on the last circuit :lol:
