    Meal Planning Monday 31st October 2016


    meal planning monday

    It’s Monday, first day back at work after a few days off, back to the last term of pre-school before Christmas. I’ve been awful with my diet since June and I’ll hold my hands up and say for one reason or another (mainly emotions and hormones) I have piled on the weight and I’m pretty appalled with myself. There’s no time to dwell on it so I’m back on it (I wonder how many times I’ve said that) and have made a plan and I’m going to stick to it.

    We suffered last week as we were away for a few days so we let the fridge run down. I didn’t have my usual fruit in which I missed and I didn’t drink half as much water as I should have done. So back to basics, I’ve got the recipe books out, asked the husband what meals he’d like to eat this week and planned a menu.

    This week we’ll be eating;

    Slimming World Spaghetti Bolognese
    Sausage and mash potato
    Slimming World Chicken kievs, actifry chips and salad
    Chicken Curry with boiled rice
    Chilli con carne and boiled rice

    I’ve also filmed a little Slimming World update and have vlogged our meal plan and weekly food shop. Bare with me on the vlog front, I’m still really nervous in front of the camera and I really should have done my hair and slapped my face on but hey ho, keeping it real over here!

    I’m excitedly going to Slimming World HQ on Friday for their Christmas blogger lunch. They’re cooking us a lovely Slimming World friendly Christmas meal (with meals from their latest Christmas recipe book) and I cannot wait to see inside their Head Office. I’m hugely gutted I’ve put weight on since June though as I’ll be no doubt the largest blogger there but maybe that’s the kick up the bum I need but I’ll be meeting some other SW bloggers and I’m really excited about it.

    Anyway, hope you like the vlog, let me know what you think and if you’d like to see any more SW related vlogs and I’ll see what I can do!
