Week 4 weigh in

So I wasn’t actually planning on going along to group this evening. With everything going  on for me health wise our group consultant had suggested that I book out on holiday for a couple of weeks whilst I await blood test results and wait for the GP to figure out whats been going on but…

Slimming World and Iceland

Anyone who is on Slimming world will know that Iceland sell a range of Slimming world meals, soups and sauces which are all syn free. Now even though I am a slimming world member I am still yet to try any of these products, apart from the fact I rarely shop in Iceland I tend…

Calzone

So this evening I decided that I would experiment with the Weight Watchers wraps which I bought the other day in an attempt to recreate a favorite dish of mine..  a calzone. To be honest I was a little dubious how this would turn out, I was worried the wrap wouldn’t do what I needed…

A speedy breakfast

I know that I have mentioned it before in my blog and I dont know if others are like me but I really really struggle with eating breakfast first thing in the morning. I dont know why but I have never really been a breakfast person, usually eating anything before 10:00 am in the morning…

Weight Watchers wraps

Reccently Ive seen a lot of people on the Slimming World plan raving about the versatitity of the weight watchers wraps and at 5.5 syns per wrap or syn free when you use one as your Hexb I can understand why. From Pasties, bakes, pizza bases, calzones and pockets I have seen so many great…

Me Vs Them

So this morning I had to pop out to do a little top up shopping, you know pick up the basics like milk, eggs, bread, fruit and veg etc. The top of the picture is Mummys top up shopping, the bottom the boys and Daddys. Chocolate galore, or should that be chocolaye bribery seeing as…

Eggs

One thing that I seem to be going through an awful lot of on my slimming world journey are eggs. Whether they are included in the ingredients of something which I am cooking up, or whether they are fried, scrambled, poached, boiled or simply as an omlette I seem I seem to be forever buying…

Feeling disheartened

So its been three weeks since I returned to Slimming world and already its all going really wrong, I literally feel like I’ve hit a brick wall and its not what I need right now. For some reason I just dont seem to be loosing the weight, in fact even though I have been sticking…

Sweet Chilli Prawns

So tonights meal was one which I kind of just threw together, there wasn’t really a plan, I had some ingredients so just threw it all together and the result was a very tasty meal. So what did I use: Dried Egg noodles King prawns Spaggetti butternut  

Breaded Chicken Strips

  Something that is eaten a lot in our house and especially by our three boys is chicken and especially if its shaped and covered in batter or breadcrumb so I thought that I would have a go at making my own chicken strips. So what did I use.. 2 chicken breasts sliced into strips…

Hifi bars

I Picked up some new flavor Hi Fi bars when I was in group last night. ‘choc macaroon and choca mocha’ and they are rather moreish. They are three syns per bar or you can use two bars as your Hexb which I tend to do if I know Im going to be running around…

Week 2 weigh in

So I have been back on Slimming world for 2 weeks now and this evening was my second week weigh in and the results .. well Im the same weight as I was last week. Nothing lost, nothing gained. Im not sure how I feel about this as I have stuck to plan, been really…
