Week 14 & 15. Sorry I didn’t post last week, I didn’t end up getting weighed. I was still feeling a little disheartened and I ended up having quite a social week too so decided to take the pressure off and just enjoy eating and drinking what I wanted for a few days, which I seriously did! But I weighed myself this morning and I’ve lost 2lbs, taking my weightloss to 16lbs. I’ve also decided to leave my group; it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a little while. I don’t stay to my group sessions, I literally go to get weighed then go home again which costs me £5 a week. I really love Slimming World, and the groups are fantastic. I wholeheartedly recommend them if you’re starting your journey. When I first started a few years ago my group was my support system and I couldn’t have done it without them, but after all this time I just don’t feel like I need the group to reach my target. I get my support from the people who read these blogs posts and my SW Instagram account. So weighing myself at home just makes sense and I can change the day and time I do this. So from next week my weekly weigh in will be on a Saturday morning with this post following shortly afterwards.
On to what I've been eating in the past week. I’ve eaten out a lot, probably too much actually but it’s been great and I’ve enjoyed every mouthful! But my SW related meals have been some previous favourites such as fish pie, beef & mushroom stroganoff and I made the SW spaghetti carbonara which was amazing. I’ve also tried a couple of the SW Iceland meals but I’ll do a separate post on then at a later date. Still having my usual fruit and yogurt for breakfast but I’m getting a little bored of this now, so looking to change it. Still really enjoying my quiche for lunch though!
Exercise. As well as eating naughty things I’ve slacked a lot on exercise too, I haven’t done as much as I have been doing in previous weeks. I keep missing my Pilates class on Sunday too as I’ve had l things going on, although I did manage to go to one on Monday morning as I had the day off (still aching from btw!) But I’m starting to really miss it and feeling guilty for missing so much. I feel like I’ve come a long way and I don’t want to lose all of my progress through laziness.
I have a wedding this weekend so that’s completely off, and I’m away at my parents next weekend but apart from that I don’t have anything on until my works Christmas night on the 18th December. So i’m going to be on this 100%, I have a target in my mind for Christmas and I’m going to bloomin’ reach it, even if it kills me! (I joke!)
Favourite meal last week? Spagehtti carbonara without a doubt!

Aims for this week? Attend my body sculpt class on Monday evening and run at least 3 times.
Any new dishes to try? I’ll be trying another couple of SW Iceland meals. Need to make those brownies too but that’ll probably be a job for next weekend.
