I’ve spoken on here before about my determination to eat healthier and lose weight. Like many of us, I go through spells but slimming world is the “diet” I always come back to.
Many of the meals I cook during the week and breakfasts I take to work are already SW focused.
Taken from Instagram accounts I follow and food blogs I read that following Slimming World, I find the recipes easy to make, delicious and I like that I know I’m eating ‘right’.
But my downfall occurs at the weekend and behind closed doors. Treats are all well and good in moderation but I pig out…a lot. Alcohol, pizza, biscuits…and when my dress ripped in work last week I knew I needed to make some small but necessary changes.
I take my breakfast and lunch to work each day…but then nip to Greggs for a donut for a sweet treat. And demolishing two full packs of digestives a week are not good!
So in a bid to lose a bit of weight before Christmas (when quite frankly, wine & cheeseboard are mandatory ) I’ve got my old SW planner out, invested in a shiny new notebook to act as my food diary and a restocked fridge with lots of veg!
So expect my recipes from here on in to be SW friendly as I try and shift the half stone that’s made an unwelcome visit around my waist!
Any hints, tips, snack or recipe ideas are more than welcome!
