Hurrah, at last, on Tuesday I got my first shiney award sticker. I lost 2 and a half pounds and got my half stone award
Very pleased with my little self as I had a very good week, I went without my Friday and Sunday glass (or four) of wine and wrote everything I ate down too.
The next few weeks though are going to be a challenge, I set myself a target of weighing less than 14 stone by Christmas Eve which is 10lb away. That should be easy but during November I have got something on every weekend.
2nd/3rd November - Bonfire weekend at my sisters with family. I am going to cook myself some Slimming World friendly foods to take and my sis is also dieting so the food won't be too bad. However can't see each other with a few drinks, it's against the law you know.
10th November - another bonfire night at a friends house - more food and drink
17th November - I officially hit the mid 30's. My 35th birthday and a meal out with the hubby but we are going to the cinema too so there won't be too much alcohol involved (that's the plan at least)
24th November - The weekend between mine and my sister's birthday, so the northern girls are descending on her house in Leicester for lots and lots of drinking - hopefully it will get danced off though.
My main plan to tackle all the oabve is to take healthy food with me where I can, stick to lower calorie vodka and diet coke and walk walk walk the dog. My sister was here this weekend too and that meant we drank too much wine on Friday and after a very healthy tea ended up nibbling on crisps and haribo's. Hopefully the 32 miles I have walked with the dog this week will cancel the bad stuff out. (I am sat finishing the left over glass of wine off while I type in front of a cosy warm fire with a chicken roasting in the oven).
Tuesday night is tasting night at slimming world and I'm thinking I'll do a syn free Keema Curry, recipe to follow next week if I remember to write down what I chuck in it.
We stocked the freezer up with loads of meat on saturday at a fab farm shop so plenty to choose from this week. If you have the space to buy in bulk then this place is well worth a visit, makes healthy eating even easier (as long as you avert your eyes from the homemade cakes) Website below, had to share. http://www.bluehillsfarmshop.co.uk/
