Slimming World: week 2.


Day 8


Breakfast: 2 shredded wheat with 1% milk (A & B), a clementine, a Muller Light yoghurt and a coffee with milk (A) and sweetener.
Lunch: mackerel in tomato sauce with mixed leaves and a packet of Hula Hoops Puft (3.5).
Snack: 4 slices of wafer thin smoked ham.
Dinner: Slimming World carbonara (1) with mushrooms and spinach.
Treat time: a packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5), 1 Lindt Lindor (4), 1 Pink and White (2.5), 3 Haribo Starmix (1.5) and some grapes.

I also had 2 litres of water and came in on plan.


N.B. The carbonara was a slimming world recipe and was surprisingly nice considering it uses fromage frais. We did think it should be cooked slightly more to thicken the sauce a little though. The original recipe also doesn't have any vegetables in it but it was really tasty with spinach and mushrooms.






Day 9

Breakfast: 2 Benefit Light cereal bars (B), a clementine and a Muller Light yoghurt.
Lunch: sardines in tomato sauce with mixed leaves and beetroot, McCain Quick Chips (3.5) and a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Snack: a clementine.
Dinner: Slimming World Paprika Pork served with brown rice, tenderstem broccoli and roasted asparagus.
Treat time: a packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5), 1 Lindt Lindor (4), 1 Pink and White (2.5), 5 Haribo Starmix (2.5), grapes and a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had 2 litres of water and came in on plan. We spent a few hours slowly walking at Bradgate Park today.


N.B. The paprika pork was a Slimming World recipe and was pretty tasty although we thought it could include a few more vegetables and would be a nicer with a bit more paprika.






Day 10

Breakfast: a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener, a clementine and a Muller Light yoghurt.
Lunch: a bow of chicken and mushroom Pasta N Sauce (made with 1% milk (A)) with spinach and 1 slice of smoked wafer thin ham. I also had half a dark rye Ryvita (B) with a spoonful of fat free cottage cheese.
Snack: a packet of Hula Hoops Puft.
Dinner: salmon with giant cous cous and stir fried pak choi, radishes, mange tout, spring onion and tenderstem broccoli.
Treat time: a packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5), 1 Lindt Lindor (4), 10 Jelly Tots (2), grapes and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had 1 pint of water and had 3 syns leftover.





Day 11

Breakfast: 2 shredded wheat (B) with 1% milk (A), a clementine, a Muller Light yoghurt and a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Lunch: mixed leaves, a boiled egg, 3 slices of wafer thin smoked ham and fat free cottage cheese.
Snack: 3 seafood sticks, grapes and a tea with skimmed milk and a sweetener.

Treat timea packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5), 1 Lindt Lindor (4), 10 Jelly Tots (2), grapes, a clementine, 3 Haribo Starmix (1.5) and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had 1 pint of water and had 5 syns leftover.






Day 12

Breakfast2 Benefit Light cereal bars (B), a clementine, a Muller Light yoghurt and a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Lunch: mixed leaved, a boiled egg, 2 rashers of bacon (all fat removed) and butter beans with half a tablespoon of light mayo (1).
Snack: 2 seafood sticks and a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Dinner: SW easy curry with haddock served with brown rice, tenderstem broccoli, mange tout and pak choi.
Treat time: a packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5), 1 Lindt Lindor (4), grapes, a Pink and White (2.5), 3 Haribo Starmix (1.5) and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had 1.5 litres of water and used up all my syns for the day.

NB. The curry was the Slimming World recipe that we cooked last week but we used haddock instead of chicken. As before, I recommend adding more than 1tbsp of curry powder to just give it a bit more flavour.



Day 13

Breakfast2 Benefit Light cereal bars (B) and a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Lunch: butter beans with half a tablespoon of light mayo (1), 4 slices of wafer thin smoked ham, 2 seafood sticks and some fat free cottage cheese, a clementine and a Muller Light yoghurt. I also had a coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Snack: a packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5).
Dinner: homemade red lentil and bacon soup and 1 dark rye Ryvita (1.5).
Treat time: 1 Lindt Lindor (4), grapes, a Pink and White (2.5), 3 Haribo Starmix (1.5) and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had 1/2 a litre of water, had 2 syns leftover and walked down the village and back.

N.B. Bit of an odd day because I was in a rush to get out this morning and it's the day before the food shop so lots of using things up and nothing much fresh left in the house. The soup is a Hairy Bikers recipe and had red pepper, red lentils, onion, sweet potato and bacon in it alongside a few other bits. Super easy and very tasty, just make sure you remove all the fat from the bacon and use 1 calorie spray in place of the oil to make it Slimming World friendly.



Day 14

Lunch: leftover lentil and bacon soup from last night, a wafer thin smoked ham and light cheese (A) sandwich with medium wholemeal bread (B), and a Muller Light yoghurt.
Dinner: passata and pesto (0.75 per portion) chicken pasta.
Treat time1 Lindt Lindor (4), 2 Ikea Pepparkakor biscuits (5), grapes, a clementine, 1 Haribo Starmix (0.5) and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had 1 litre of water and had just under 5 syns leftover.

N.B. Me and Hunter treated ourselves to a lie in today so I didn't have breakfast and a bigger lunch meant no snacking. Our dinner was supposed to be a pesto chicken pasta like we usually make with Philedelphia Lightest but we tried to make it with fat free fromage frais and then tried again with fat free yoghurt and it just curdled everytime so we gave up in the end and made it with passata and added some chilli flakes too. It was yummy but it was annoying because had we planned to have it with passata, I would have whacked a load of veg in to it too.

After this week I had dropped 1lb which I was really pleased with, especially since I was also on my period and wanted to eat the entire kitchen! Only 11lbs more to go! 
I'm feeling a lot more comfortable already for dropping 3lbs and apparently it's noticeable that I have lost weight already which is always nice to hear! 

I felt much happier going in to this week knowing a bit more on what to expect and what to cut back on and add more of, and my portion sizes have been much better also.

Remember, you can check out my meals daily on Instagram in case you are interested!
