• Healthy Apple Crumble

    I’ve been playing around trying to make healthier alternatives of some of my favourite puddings and snacks over the past few days. My healthy banana and oatmeal cookies are still a work in progress (watch this space) but I created this incredibly simple, healthy apple crumble recipe today as a follow up for Sunday lunch […]

  • Sun, Sea, Slimming… and disappointment

    It has been a little while since I posted, as I was away last week and time just seems to have run away with me! On that note however, I’ve been planning on writing about my holiday and the efforts I went to to stay ‘on plan’ for the five days that I was out […]

  • My First Weigh In

    This is going to be a quick one, as I’m off on holiday tomorrow for a few days and should probably get to bed! Monday was my first weigh in with Slimming World! I had been trying so hard all week, I had barely Syned, had drunk plenty of water and had tracked all of my […]

  • Strawberry Cheesecake Soufflé

    This is my first attempt at creating my own Slimming World friendly recipe! Each serving has two Syns in because of the Rich Tea Biscuits but other than that is completely free! Usually I posts pictures, but this time I’ve tried something a bit different (so bear with me on the quality!) but I had […]

  • A Great Start

    Day two of sticking to my Slimming World diet and I think I’m doing well! I’m loving thinking of new recipes and ideas (stay tuned for my virtually Syn free cheese cake experiment!) and I am already feeling better! Whether that’s the food or all in my head I don’t know, but I swear I’m […]

  • My First Day

    Today was my first day of food optimising and I’m ‘Syn’ free and feeling great! To help myself avoid the endless chocolate biscuits in the office, I’ve drunk plenty of water to keep myself filled up and made sure that my meals would fill me up enough to resist temptation. Here’s a quick look at what […]

  • Starting My Journey

    So I know what you’re thinking…I’m 21 years old, how have I let it get to the point where I need to go to Slimming World? Well the answer is simple, I have no self control. Sound familiar? Still, I never thought it would come to this. I hope no one who does go to […]
