Whilst I’ve been sticking to our weekly Slimming World meals for dinner, I just haven’t been as strict during the day as I should be, and whilst I’ve not been eating total rubbish, I’ve just not been sticking to the plan and the weight I did lose has slowly crept back on again.
So I decided to get myself together and transfer my online membership to group membership instead. You can catch up on the how’s and why’s by clicking here. Plus read about what that first group meeting was like.
This week I am well and truly back on plan. I’ve had my first weigh in at group on Friday so this Friday coming will be my first loss (or gain) but I’ll be making sure it’s a loss!
During the day is the hardest part for me. I have no problems snacking in the evenings as I make a proper meal for the hubby & I. It’s the lunchtime & mid afternoon snacking that I need to get over. So I’m going to be getting organised for my lunches too. I’m starting to prep in advance, either cooking more the night before so I can have the left overs for lunch or prepping a meal based on the night before. So if we’re having chicken, I’ll incorporate that into the lunch for the next day.
I’ve been getting pretty bored with just fruit & yogurt for breakfast but I don’t want to use up both my healthy extra a & b on cereal, plus I’m not a fan of toast so instead I’ve been making myself slimming world friendly overnight oats instead. It’s a super simple syn free recipe which is a bonus, and I’ve just added to my Slimming World recipe section on the blog. Plus you can make it in so many different flavours and add different fruits to up your speed foods too.
This is the one I’ve struggled with. I’ve gotten into the habit of not bothering to cook just for myself, and as I work from home I’ll tend to just snack throughout the day. I’m making sure I have lot’s of lunch options that are super quick, plus lot’s of leftovers in the freezer ready to microwave.
I’ve bought a new Free & Easy recipe book so I also want to try out Asian tuna & sweetcorn fritters (Syn Free) plus I’ll also be making a leek & potato soup this week to warm up for lunches too as I’ve got my new NutriBullet to try out.
I normally use my Healthy Extra A for my milk for my cups of teas but I’m trying to drink more green tea, so I’ll still have my A choice for meals.
- Paprika chicken with tagliatelle (Syn Free)
- Homemade fishcakes (1 1/2 syns per serving)
- Cajan chicken burgers with SW potato wedges (1 Syn if using wholemeal roll as Healthy Extra B otherwise it’s 7 syns)
- Homemade steamed pork & prawn balls (Syn Free)
- Chicken breast ‘pizzas’ (Syn Free)
- King prawn dopiaza (Syn Free)
- Speedy spring lamb hotpot (Syn Free)
