Slimming World – The Synful, Social Me

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. Wine, pizza, garlic bread, olives and baked camembert have all featured whilst catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

Slimming World - Still in a rut

Slimming World – Still in a rut

First of all, I must apologise for missing my Slimming World post last week. A combination of me being a doughnut and not having my head in gear, resulted in not having the equipment I needed available. Consequently, I was not ready to publish at my usual Tuesday evening time. With the delay inevitable, the situation as it was, and with my continued stuck in a rutness, I just decided, on this occasion, to leave it until the following week and concentrate on future content. Again, apologies, normal service resumes today.

Slimming World - Meal Planning

Slimming World – Meal Planning

If you have read my post about Getting Organised, you will know that meal planning is not a favourite task. However, the process of compiling that piece led me to consider that perhaps I was overthinking it. I have always found that deciding on breakfast and lunch have been the hardest part of planning.  So, I decided to break it down. Nevertheless, having removed some of the weight of the chore, I then replaced the workload by reasoning that it would be wise to keep several ongoing lists. I shall explain…

Slimming World – Get Organised

I used to believe that keeping a food diary was the only thing required to stay on track, but something that has become of equal importance is meal planning. This is interesting because I don’t often do it and perhaps here lies my problem. I tend to find that my ability to stay on plan and the subsequent impact on my weight loss, is always better when I get organised and am feeling prepared. Unfortunately, this is not a zone that I often appear to be in.

Slimming World – The Fakeaway – Beef & Black Bean

On the basis that this looks the part and being that it is I writing this post, you would be forgiven for thinking that this is a picture of a takeaway. But no, this Slimming World - The Fakeaway, Beef & Black Bean meal is, in fact, a slimming world friendly dish and commonly known as a Fakeaway.

Slimming World - In a rut

Ok, so we are just going to pretend that this week did not happen as I have been completely off plan and am afraid to get on the scales. I am in a rut. I have had a few slimming world friendly meals as pictured in this post, and in usual style, they tasted great. However, my mood seems to be battling against me at the moment and so far it is winning… hmm. Fingers crossed I can claw myself out of this, pronto…
