Sarah83's Food Diary 2014
I've jumped back on the wagon again, new year new start. I love slimming world and happily lost 2 stone in 2010 before becoming pregnant with my daughter, putting it all back on again and struggling to get back on track ever since.
My main problem now is time - I used to love spending at least an hour every evening cooking the evening meal and then doing a load of batch cooking on the weekend, but now I struggle as I don't get home until 6pm in the week, have a precious hour with my daughter before she goes to bed then I'm too shattered to do much. But I'm going to try my hardest to batch cook as much as I can so at least a couple of meals a week are already done and ready in the freezer.
I am also going to plan plan plan! I've written down my weekly meal plan including snacks too, and used this to do our weekly Aldi shop yesterday.
My target is to lose as much weight as I can by my mother-in-law's wedding in August. I would like to lose at least 2 stone (at a slow 1lb am week), but preferably much more. 2 stone should take me down to a comfortable size 16 (I'm a big 18 at the moment).
I also struggle with fitting exercise in too. I am very selfish with the time I get with my daughter so I am going to try and have brisk walks in my lunchbreak whenever I can, and I'm going to try and get up 20mins earlier during the week and fit something in then. I've bought Josie Gibson's 30 second slim DVD but I'm yet to try it and my friend has told me it's hard work, so I'm wondering if I need something a bit milder to start with!
Anyway sorry for boring you! Hope you all have a good day :D
Meals planned for the week
Trout, Jacket potato and salad (working from home)
Pasta with passatta and veg with salad x 2
Ratatouille with rice x 2
Spaghetti with meatballs and salad
Egg fried rice with loads of veggies
Pork steak stir fry with veggies and noodles, maybe syns for sweet chilli sauce
Jacket potato with beans and cheese
Spaghetti with garlic and scallops ( HEXB for olive oil) and salad
Breakfasts I'm struggling to plan, I used to always use my HEXB for brekkie but I'm a bit reluctant now as I would like to save it for later in the day for olive oil or cereal bars, but I get a bit sick of fruit and yoghurt. I will have to have a think about brekkies...
