Can't believe I have been MIA so long. Have been sick and then unluckily myself and my partner got food poisoned from a local restaurant.

So I have lost 9lbs since my last weigh in. However I put most of that down to being sick so not expecting it to stay.

Heres a few foods we have been eating and a huge Aldi haul I did this week for batch cooking.

Weeks batch cook meal plan

2. Chicken curry
3. Meatballs
4. Cottage pie
5. Dahl

Can't believe it was October the last time I really looked at my weight. I've been hiding for too long with using flu as excuse, then sinus infections etc..

But that's it the line is drawn! Well and truly drawn.

First goal is 50lbs! 2019 will be my year.

Week one - birthday week. So a night out with friends planned. So will be over syns. But few SP meals and hope for a good loss.

Friday 11th
Breakfast banana, water, 2 rashers (cooked with fat but didn't eat it ) a fried onion and fried yellow pepper.
Lunch- chicken in black bean sauce (leftover from birthday Chinese takeaway) and basmati rice 2 syns. (Only two tablespoons leftover)
Mandarin oranges *3
Latte with friends... Don't know if I should even syn this as I don't take the full amount of hex a ever as I'm not a dairy fan.

Syn free chicken curry with boiled rice and tonnes of veggies courgette, peppers, onions,
Lots of water

Some peas and rice made for my daughter. All synfree just snacked on it cause she wasn't eating it.

Well my healthy stockpile is done. Free foods at the ready. Got plenty of Passata, chopped tomatoes, peas, chickpeas, haricot beans, mixed beans and herbs and spices.

No excuses now

Good day on plan so far.

Banana and water and a leimsip (I don't syn medicine)


Chicken curry with rice and lots of water loaded with courgette, peppers, onions, aubergine.


Out for birthday meal and drinks. The last hurrah.
Although I'm having steak and veggies so it will only be syns for oil and butter. Then sticking to shorts and diet sodas. Hopefully stay quite low syn.

Eating oranges before I leave the house. So here's hoping the speed helps ๐Ÿ˜‚

Goal for tomorrow!
Batch cook up a load of veggie pasta sauce for the freezer and make 10 portions of syn free meatballs to have in freezer for quick dinners. Wish me luck!

Banana and coffee hexa low fat milk

Onion rings, wedges, fish fingers... (Picking at food really my other half and daughter were eating these I was snacking at them and I had two mandarins
Pint of mi wadi

Again a mix match of a dinner.
Steak with stir fry veggies in a smokey BBQ flavoured seasoning, green beans, corn on cob and some oven chips.

Syns..... Well..... Let's just saw it was a flexy day ๐Ÿคฆ

The only good to come from today is the sheer volume of batch cooking that I did.

8 portions of Roasted Red Pepper Soup. (all speed)
10 portions of Roasted veg pasta sauce (all speed again)
10 portions of Garlic and Tomato pasta sauce

I meal prepped roasted courgettes for adding into pasta during the week, sliced green, yellow, orange and red peppers, roasted garlic cloves, sliced red onions, white onions, cucumber, washed cherry tomatoes and portioned them out.

Feeling positive for the week ahead. Have a wedding in 12 weeks. So goal of 12lbs off for it.


Does 5 hours standing in the kitchen cooking count as body magic?

Lunch was a 5% lean beef burger with stir fried peppers and onions with some sweet potato cubes done in actifry with some fajita seasoning. It was so handy having all prepped so it was just 10 mins cooking and a healthy meal in front of me. The sweet potato was frozen chunks so just put them straight into actifry.

Spaghetti and Meatballs with the loaded veg sauce from yesterdays batch. Just had a small bowl as I was still full from the lunch.

2 X easy peelers

Syns- king cheese and onion crisps had them this eve with my hexb hazelnuts and some apple slices.

Four pints of water.

Almost a week off plan after some tragic news about the death of a close family friend. I tried to be good but with the mood I was in all week. I made some good choices but mainly bad ones. Here's a few snippits of the few meals I actually photographed. Somehow I've managed a maintain this week which I will happily take.
