Free A5 printable: Slimming World Daily Planner

You may have read my previous post where I was preaching about the importance of meal planning if you’re trying to lose weight. I think being organised is key; life’s going to throw obstacles in your way, you might as well have a nicely stocked fridge to help you deal with it. If like me, you’re following the Slimming World plan, you’ll understand the need to keep track of your …

Slimming World Lunch: Weekend Hash

This has become a bit of a weekend tradition in our house, and as an added bonus, once the chopping is done, it’s just a ‘stick in the Actifry and walk off’ meal. It’s filling and perfect Slimming World food – the only syns in there are for the Heck sausage I use, which are 3.5 syns each. You can swap these for a lower-syn variety, or just use more …

Slimming World Dinner: Paprika Chicken with Rice and Vegetables

This is a deceptively easy dinner and made me happy before I even started eating it – that’s a good start! Just look at all of those pretty colours! This recipe is packed with delicious fresh speed foods. Normally this would be a variety of vegetables that are lying in the bottom of the fridge, but today’s variety consisted of a courgette, a yellow pepper, a decent handful of cherry tomatoes, …

Zen and the Art of Meal Planning for Weight Loss

This week I’ve got to get serious – I’m trying to shed some holiday weight and I need to go back to basics to help me get back on track. It’s really easy to get complacent when you’ve lost a lot of weight and lose sight of the end-point of your weight loss journey. Meal planning is the most important habit to get into when you need to make a …


8 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Worry About Gaining Weight

My weight loss journey has been pretty uneventful; I’ve lost about 2lb per week on average, and I’ve had a couple of weeks where I’ve maintained my weight, and a couple of blips that have been totally predictable. I’ve enjoyed plotting my weight on the Slimming World app each week and basked in the pat on the backs it’s given me each week as I’ve entered my losses. This week …


Can You Lose Weight While on Holiday… and Should You?

I’m a firm believer that will-power is a developed trait; I’ve not always had it, in fact I’ve often used my astonishing lack of it as a reason why no diet would work for me. However, I’ve found losing weight to be remarkably easy this time; one reason obviously being my fantastic Slimming World consultant and weekly group, but the other being my new-found willpower. I’ve found it easy to …


Losing Weight: To Group, or Not to Group?

Yes, that’s the question. The answer is largely down to personal choice, but since this is something that’s particularly close to my heart, I thought I’d weigh-in on the topic. No pun intended. Oops. I’ve lost 7 stone 5lbs now; 103lbs or even 47kg if that’s easier to imagine. This has been a thoroughly life-changing loss, and I owe this all to Slimming World. My BMI’s gone from a massively …

Neal’s Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm – So Much to Love!

Since reading the gorgeous Ruth Crilly’s review of Neal’s Yard’s Wild Rose Beauty Balm on her blog, I’ve been hooked on this wonder-product. I must second her opinion, it’s amazing as an overnight face treatment; a generous slathering of this herby rose-scented balm before bed works wonders. I go to bed at night feeling well and truly pampered with the rich scent and texture, and wake up looking refreshed with …
