weight loss

good news this week guys at slimming world.
I’m down a pound.
I didnt make the stone, but maybe next week?
If I can get two and a half pounds down by next week I’ll be down a stone.
but i am happy with this weeks results.
i think I didnt do too bad at all.
You cant lose big amounts of weight every week.


Daily food log

Still right on plan with my diet, so its not all bad…
I hope this week to be down some more weight, would love it if I could be down another 3.5 pounds, because then I’d be down a stone, 14 pounds, in 5 weeks, and I’d get my certificate for losing a stone…
anyway…the food diary for today…
two slices of toast, some bacon, mug of tea
A toasted ham sandwich, some strawberries, and blueberries…
chicken curry with boiled rice, bottle of water
a fruit salad, with mandarin, berries, apple, grapes…
crackers, a hi fi slimming world bar…

Exercise today was 20 mins on the treadmill, despite feeling depressed…Am so proud I managed it..

Delicious fruit salad

I made this delicious fruit salad today. I thought I’d share what I put in it and how I did it, its super simple.


One mandarin orange, sliced
One kiwi, chopped
One apple, chopped
Handful of grapes, halved
Some strawberries, chopped
Handful of blueberries
Handful of blackberries
Plain low fat natural greek yoghurt

Put all the fruit in a big bowl. Pour over the natural yoghurt and enjoy.
I promise it tastes delicious!

Doing it right

I’m really getting on track today.
Eating healthy food, exercising, yay, all that good stuff…
I made a baked potato, chicken fillet and baked beans for dinner. It was delicious. Just got done eating about a half hour ago.
I am going to make a big fruit salad soon and have that later tonight…
I have blueberries, blackberries, grapes, strawberries, mandarin orange, and apple, all of them I will put in it and then put natural yoghurt over it…yummy.
I’d love to be down another 3 and a half pounds this week, then I’d be down a stone, or 14 pounds for my US readers, in 5 weeks…that’d be so awesome!
We shall see I guess, but I’m doing all I can, I am doing everything right…

Dinner tonight is…easy chicken curry

hey guys
so i’m making the slimming world easy chicken curry for dinner tonight.
I cant wait to taste it! I have just sent my PA off to get the groceries and when she comes back she’ll help me cook it!
Here is the recipe in case any of you want to try it?
this is a free recipe, there arent any syns in it!
Low calorie cooking spray
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
2 large onions, peeled and finely chopped
½ green pepper and ½ red pepper, deseeded and chopped in chunks
4 skinless chicken breasts, chopped into chunks
100g chopped mushrooms
400g tin chopped tomatoes
225ml chicken stock
2 heaped tsp of curry spice (mild, medium or hot – your choice)
Fat free natural yogurt
Fresh coriander and fresh green chilli, to serve

1.Place the chicken on a plate, season well and set aside.
2.Spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion, mushrooms and peppers and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes or until starting to lightly brown.
3.Stir in the garlic, curry powder and stir-fry over a high heat for 1-2 minutes.
4.Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes until sealed, then add the tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil, cover tightly, reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer gently for 40-45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chicken is cooked through.
5.Remove the frying pan from the heat, adjust the seasoning to taste and serve garnished with chopped coriander and sliced green chillies. If you enjoy a creamier curry or want to make the curry less hot swirl in some fat free natural yogurt.
