What I ate this week…

My first weigh in after rejoining and erasing my history at Slimming World…

As part of my wiping the slate clean, I thought I’d share my food log for this week. Because I’m a very visual person, I’ve included pictures. If an area of text is blue, you can click on it to be taken to the recipe, but I’ve included a breakdown of all the stuff in the meals too, just for ease of reference. Enjoy!

Weekly weigh in update – wiping the slate clean

Just a very quick video while on the move, as I was in the car on my way to a concert with my lovely friend, Helen.

And because I’m really good to you all, here are a few pics from the concert (OMGs I still love Adam Ant!), because we were only a couple of rows back, right in the centre. Had a fabulous night, and now I’m ready to start again!

 

Weeks 105 and 106 Weigh In

You may have noticed I went AWOL last week. I was run off my feet during the pantomime, but I explain everything in this vlog, so keep watching!

If anyone is local to Blyth, Northumberland, and fancies coming along to the iKandies charity cabaret on 6th May that I mention in this video, you can get the info and book the tickets by following this link HERE.

And if you’re interested, here’s how I looked during the panto last week – I was playing Puss In Boots!

Week 104 Weigh In

In which I reveal whether or not the measures I put in place last week worked for me…

For those who are interested, here’s my food diary for the week:

FOOD LOG FOR ANDY 7.4 – 13.4

And if you’d like one of my food diaries for yourself here’s a blank copy. If you’re printing it off to write in, you can colour in the symbols (half a syn per half circle, and one non-syn drink per diamond), or you can do as I did and replace them with whatever you like (I used musical notes for my syns, and drops for drinks).
