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.
