I am in two minds about how things have been Slimming World wise this week. Although there is a bright side, I feel frustrated. On plan, off plan, on plan, off plan.
This week has been peppered with social engagements and, me being me, I have indulged in the usual style. When at home I have stayed on plan but, whilst out, I have enjoyed the finer things – you know how it is.
