Meal Planning Monday 27th June 2016

meal planning monday

Late to the party with posting this week’s Meal Planning Monday but it’s been a busy weekend and when I finally got chance to write this post last night, my blog was down. That was my nod to head off to bed so I did!

It’s been a weekend full of treats so this week’s meals are going to be low syn and synfree where possible. On Friday, I headed down to London to meet with Boots for a pre-Britmums meeting. We went to a posh restaurant in Mayfair and were treated to smoothies and nibbles. Later in the evening I met up with friends and had a drink or three, although I did order a skinny burger with a salad for my tea (polishes battered halo!)

On Saturday, at Britmums, I started the day off well with an on-plan breakfast then it went all down hill from there as I ate the food that was on offer throughout the day. On Sunday, I went to a local hotel and spa for afternoon tea for my friends birthday celebrations. We had a delicious afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and a plate full of other little sweet treats.

Today, I feel bloated and just generally bleugh, so have been back on plan and hoping there won’t be too much damage on the scales tomorrow! In reality, I know I’ll gain. It was time of the month last week and for the last two weeks I’ve just felt awful to be honest. Really need to detox my body and have a steady ‘on-plan’ few weeks!

Our meal plan for the week is pretty basic

  • Chicken Caeser Salad
  • Diet Coke Chicken with savoury rice
  • Sczechuan Pork with noodles
  • Filled omelettes with salad

We’ve got plans to eat out at the weekend so I’m hoping I can choose wisely and up my non-existent level of exercise. I really need to get out walking, since losing Mikey (our beloved dog) getting daily exercise has been the least of my worries but I do really need to get a shift on and get out there.

Anyway, I digress… What are you eating this week? Would love you to link up below!

    Hi Emma. Have recently started following your blog. I had our fourth baby 8 weeks ago and am back on plan this week for first time so love your posts. We are having slimming world curry, kebabs made with Sw meatballs from Iceland and courgette and peppers, bolognese made with Turkey mince and Sw egg fried rice. Really enjoying your posts especially your foodie ones.

    Oh I’m so sorry to hear you lost your dog. Mine are the only thing that keep me going some days, I always get out walking with them and try to run when I can because our young dog needs lots of exercise. Her and I definitely need to get a bit more exercise though, I’m so terrible at cutting down on food to lose weight, I definitely need to exercise more.
