Slimming World: week 4.


Day 22

Breakfast: a sausage sandwich with 2 Porky Light sausages (1), ketchup (0.5) and 2 rounds of medium wholemeal toast (B), a clementine and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.
Lunch: 2 banana pancakes with a Muller Light yoghurt and grapes.
Snack: 4 seafood sticks.
Dinner: bolognaise with mushrooms, onion and tomatoes served with carrot and butternut squash 'spaghetti'.
Treat time: 4 Haribo Starmix (2), a Maltesers Mini Bunny (3), 2 Galaxy Golden Mini Eggs (2), 1 Lindt Lindor (4), a packet of Sunbites sweet and salty popcorn (2.5), a mandarin orange and a cup of coffee with 1% milk (A) and a sweetener.

I also had half a litre of water and came in on plan.


N.B. The Porky Lights are a definite winner in the sausage stakes and only half a syn each! They had a lovely flavour and a proper sausagey texture (compared to the Morrisons NuMe ones which I didn't like the texture of!). The pancakes only had 2 ingredients - eggs and banana - and were really quick and easy to make. Just wish I could have covered them in peanut butter or chocolate spread!




Day 23

Breakfast: 2 Benefit Light cereal bars (B).
Lunch: tuna and sweetcorn rice with mixed leaves.
Snack: 4 seafood sticks, a packet of Aldi Cheese Curls (3) and 2 bites of birthday cakes (putting this down as 3 but I'm only guessing).

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


N.B. The soup was a Slimming World recipe and was really fresh and tasty. It had tomatoes, onion, and carrot in it and I'd maybe add celery next time but I didn't really feel it needed anything else.

I am so happy this week because I've managed to drop 3lbs!!! That's my biggest loss so far and takes me down to the halfway mark - half a stone gone, just another 7lbs left!

I've been trying to cut my syns down during the week and just have the full amount at the weekend, as well as not saving them just for treats but instead using them for our dinners also. It's meant I've enjoyed those dinners a lot more and they've left me feeling a lot more satisfied and like I've eaten something naughty so I'm not craving so much bad stuff! I've also been trying to put veg with things instead of rice or potato - for example, we used carrot and butternut squash spaghetti and cauliflower rice this week, and we bought ourselves a spiralizer (at last!) so now we can have these things more often.

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