Last week I posted my first Slimming World meal plan and I was feeling motivated after losing 5.5lbs in my first week. This week has not been as great as it is star week and all I have wanted to do is eat crisps and chocolate, I have tried being good but I did go over my syns a couple of days this week. This week I have tried a few new meals from the latest Slimming World magazines so let's have a look at what I have been eating this week.
This week I have been having hi-fi light bars (available to buy in group) I tried the new Fruit & Nut ones but I am not sure if I like them. I have also been having 2 Weetabix with semi-skimmed milk from my allowance and fruit most days. A couple of days I have been busy and just grabbed some fruit and a Mullerlight yoghurt. I normally use my Healthy Extra B choice at breakfast time and I have used my Healthy Extra A choice on semi-skimmed milk each day.
This week I have been having Subway salads again as they so yummy and packed with speed food and free foods, I normally have the sweet onion dressing which is 1.5 syns. I have also had jacket potatoes with tuna in light mayonnaise (2 syns) and salad. Bacon, mushroom, tomatoes and scrambled egg on toast (hex B). I have used a few syns on sauces to go with my lunches this week.
This week for tea I have had
- Slow cooked Irish Stew - recipe from the Slimming World magazine
- Cajun chicken pasta
- Steak with savoury rice (synned) and salad
- Ham with chips cooked in the airfryer and salad
- Salmon with mushroom cous cus (synned) with salad and beetroot
- Cantonese lemon chicken with vegetable fried rice - from the latest magazine
- Lean pork steaks with oxo roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy (1.5 syns)
I hold my hands up and admit I have been bad with snacks this week and went over my syns due to a crisp craving. However, I have tried to be good and stick to the plan and have been snacking on fruit, Mullerlight yoghurts, crabsticks and low syn crisps such as quavers.
As expected this week I did not lose weight and I actually gained half a pound. It was less then I thought I would have gained so I am happy with that. Fingers crossed for a loss again next week.
I have also set up an Instagram account this week and I will be posting all of my meals, three times a day to try and motivate me to stay on track. You can follow my new Instagram account lindsayswdiary
