Been off plan (again!)

When will I ever learn?

One bad day doesn't have to mean a bad week?

I've pre paid for 12 weeks, I have 5 left to go and I'm doing abysmally.

Time to kick it up a gear I think.

I started fresh again today, even though I am going away at the weekend and most likely will not stick to plan, it doesn't mean that I cannot make a fresh start today, damage limitation so to speak. 

I feel really embarrassed going to class, getting on the scales to find that I haven't changed much from week one, but if i never face them, I will never get into the habit of changing.

Today's meals were, fruit for breakfast, mugshot, ham with pease pudding, pea pods and muller for lunch, shepherds pie with veg and gravy for tea (2syns).

Snacks were, 2 x Alpen light/Hifi HeB

freddo 5, pink n white wafer 2.5, ice lolly 2, quavers 3.5 totalling: 15syns for the day.

 Hopefully I'll be back soon, with better results.

Today has been a write off!

Wow! There are no other words for how bad today has been food wise.

I have 4 days to pull this back before wi.

I started the day well, fruit for breakfast. Snacked on ham, chicken, fruit etc.

Then... The bread found me!!

It was a slippery slope from then on! 

Bread, chocolate, iced bun! It all went down the hatch!

I don't feel any better for it now. I'm not going to beat myself up over it, I'm only human afterall.


That is my line, I've drawn it and tomorrow is a new day.

Creamy garlic and herb pasta with chicken, mushrooms and chives!

I had this for lunch today! It was delicious!

We've been talking in class about garlic mushrooms on toast. I don't like to use my HeB for bread, I tend to save it for my Alpen light bars, that way I know I can grab something snacky when I need to without going off plan. 

I'd cooked too much pasta the night before for my tea so what I had left went into this. It did not disappoint!


Cooked chicken breast
16g garlic and herbs Philadelphia (2syns)

Fry mushrooms, add Philly and a touch of water. Let melt.
Add the chicken and pasta and toss.
Sprinkle with chives and serve!

Super quick and tasty.

Back on the wagon!

It's been a while...

I'm back on the slimming world wagon, I'm on week 3 having lost 6.5lbs in the previous two weeks.

I was soooo frustrated to have lost 2lbs last week having convinced myself that I would get my half stone award.

I did manage my slimmer of the week award though, so not all is lost and that half stone award will be mine next week!

You cant't beat a good old shiny sticker!!


Anyway I will try and update more often. I think it might do me some good.
