Recipe // SW Tex Mex Chilli

Chilli is often my go-go dish when I want to make something yummy, healthy but quickly! I have my own chilli recipe down to an art but in a bid to shape up, I decided to give this completely syn free Slimming World chilli a go! The majority of the ingredients were the same, just…

Weekly food shop haul

This blog is here to chat about food and beauty equally but when I’m on a health kick it shows with an array of new recipes to try. But today I thought I’d try something a bit different with my weekly food shop haul. I’m really nosey and love seeing what people pop in their…

The weekly round-up

Blog posts have been quite spare around these parts lately, with the weekly round-up appearing each Sunday.  Next week food and beauty posts will make a return but for now, here’s been my week in pictures.  Officially one week in to back on the healthy train following Slimming World again.

5 days, 5 healthy meal ideasΒ 

Since the start of the year I’ve been following the Slimming World plan, on and off. It works well for me as I don’t feel restricted and can still enjoy naughty meals such as curries and chilli without the added badness.

However I’ve found the perfect balance is just to incorporate it into your usual lifestyle,…

Slimming World update – Week 3

I’m now three weeks into following the Slimming World plan. Ive decided to do it myself, attending the class to get weighed to ensure it’s accurate but skipping the group chats as I feel I’m doing well on my own. I decided to blog this to keep me on track and simply to highlight, it…

Preparation is the answer…

If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail – a little saying that rings true when you’re trying to lose weight. Temptation is everywhere and this past week I’ve been away with work. That meant a cooked breakfast here, glass of wine there and one kitkat chunky later, the scales are refusing to budge….

Easy peasy breakfast ideas

Last Wednesday I took the plunge and joined my local Slimming World group. A couple of friends of mine have joined over the last six months and I thought I would give it a go. In terms of my weight I would like to lose half a stone ideally, nothing too drastic. But, I want…
