dinner was amazing! mom and I made vegetable soup together. it was so delicious!
we even put chili in it. it was spicy and hot. but so yummilicious!
it had potato, onion, parsnip, turnip, carrot, and chopped up chili in it. then we put oregano and herbs in there too. and a vegetable stock cube.
We didnt blend it, we just left it chunky, we said we’d try it that way and it really tasted great!
I’m definitely getting my speed foods in this week!
Been eating a ton of fruit and veg!
So if I am not down any weight next wednesday, I dont know what to think!


cooking with my mom

so mom is cooking for me today. what would I do without her!

she’s making chicken curry, and vegetable soup.

I’ll have the soup for dinner tomorrow and the leftovers for lunches during the week, and the curry is for my dinner during the coming week.

I think I’ll help my mom with the cooking. I havent really cooked since finishing the ILS course, not properly anyway. My version of cooking has been to just throw something in the oven.

I do enjoy cooking. It makes me happy to do it.


Meal planning for the week

so I sent mom off to do my weekly grocery shop. Everythings so damn expensive!
I cannot believe the price of food! I should really go to aldi’s or lidal to do my weekly shop, but mom goes to a local store called dunne stores, she gets hers there, and while she’s good enough to do mine for me, I cant ask her to go to two different stores.
That wouldnt be fair on her.
So anyway. I gave her fifty euro. With that, I’m buying a lot of fruit, and some food to make a batch vegetable soup, a chili con carne, and a chicken curry.
I’ll be eating those meals for the entire week, barring Sunday when I’ll be at my parents house for dinner.
I’m good with that though. They are all healthy meals.
And planning and preparation is key when your on the slimming world diet.


another day is here

well its thursday. wow already? anyway. i got a great nights sleep. so i am feeling good today.
after last nights disappointment of being up when I got weighed in, i have picked myself up. this morning i exercised. i did 30 mins of a workout. i have a workout on my phone designed for the blind. i did that.
Im also drinking a lot of water. I’ve drank 3 500 ml bottles since last night. I feel good and I think it is helping, although I need to use the bathroom a lot lol.
My mom has gone to pick up my meds this morning. Im still at my parents house. I will be here for a fewe days. My PA asked me last night if she could take tomorrow night off, since she is going away for a few days. I told her she could.
I dont have too many plans for today. Moms going to make a spag bol for us. She’s making it the healthy way with passata and tinned tomatos and wholemeal spaghetti and 5 percent fat minced beef.
It will be yummy!
Other than that I’m just relaxing here at my parents. Its a beautiful sunny day. Last night when I came home from slimming world I was freezing! I even ended up wearing a fleece pajamas! But today its warm and I had to take it off and put on a light strappy top and some leggings.
What are your plans for today?


Unlucky this week

so it didnt happen for me this week.
I didnt lose any weight. In fact I gained half a pound.
I was so disappointed.
But I think I know what I am doing wrong. I am not eating enough speed foods, to help me in my weight loss.
Thats mostly fruit and veg. So for next week I’ll eat plenty more of them.
So, onwards and upwards for next week. And I hope by eating more speed foods I’ll see results on the scale.


Weigh in time 馃榾

Another Wednesday, another week. Time to go and get weighed in. Hopefully I’ve lost some weight this week. I’m being hopeful.

I’ve had a pretty good week so I should be okay.

Will report back when I get home in about two hours.


Wish me luck guys
