Mother's Day Wish List


Following on from my birthday wish list post which worked really well,(I'm getting the blog design package I wished for!) I've decided to compile a Mother's Day wish list seeing as though its fast approaching.

Let Them Eat Cake

Or more importantly let me eat cake; I just can not stop thinking about it....

I love food too much (hence Slimming World), but cake is my food of choice; I could eat it for breakfast, dinner and tea. I have day where even through I know I shouldn’t only a lovely large slab of cake will do.

Why is it that every time I’m on a diet I obsess about the things I know I should have? Why can’t I fantasise about carrot sticks and celery?

Midweek Meal: Slow Cooker Diet Coke Chicken

Since it's just myself and Little Miss eating at home at the moment I'm all for quick, easy and Slimming World friendly recipes; and Diet Coke chicken is one of the easiest to make.

I Will Survive

I'm not the world greatest Mum; but I try to do my best. The only routine I ever stuck to was 'bath, bottle, bed', if I'm honest I'm making it up as I go along.

Midweek Meal: Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

I'm a girl who loves her slow cooker.

I've mentioned in my Diet Coke Chicken post about how I find it east to plan ahead and have a healthy, home cooked meal ready for Little Miss and I when we get back from a day filled with work and adventure.

Coffee Cup Cozy

I have a new obsession and for once it's not food or yarn!!!

This year I've decided to make most of my Christmas gifts, so I'm trying to get ahead of the game now.

Shabby Chic Crocheted Jar Covers

I've been picking up my crochet hooks in the evening in a bid to stop shovelling chocolate in my mouth (easier said than done!).

Weigh In Week 5

As most of you are aware it was my birthday on Monday. The amount of food if shoved down my gob you would think it was my birthday all week!

I ate so much; too much really and most of this time I wasn't even hungry. I ate it because it was there and I wanted it. I used my birthday as an excuse all week. 

I was dreading morning, I was expecting a really big gain. I was pleasantly supprised to sw I had only put on half and pound!

So I've drawn a line under this week and start afresh today......Try to hit the gym 5 days a week, up my water intake and reduce the amount of Syns I use on chocolate and cake!

Slimming World Essentials

I’ve been Food Optimising with Slimming World for a little over a month now and I realise there a few things that I cannot live without. So in no particular order here are my Slimming World essentials……

3 weekends, 3 parties!

What a social life, so many party invites...I don't know how we are going to make them all!

No; not me. My 3 year old......Yes you did read that right, my 3 year old has a better social life that I do!

Birthday wish list

My birthday is less than a week away. This next year will be my last year in my 30’s; honestly I don’t really know how I feel about that. There is the irrational part of my brain that’s running around in her miss matched bra and knickers; having a melt down because that’s so close to 40; she’s really having an anxiety attack because that’s practically 50!
Then there is the happy, giggly child in me that cannot wait. I get a whole day which revolves around me (yes I’m having a diva moment), I’ll have lots and lots of birthday wishes; which my husband has to for fill, because after all it is my birthday….SPOIL ME!!!
So I’ve decided to make a little wish list (it’s my first time, so please be gently) Hoping to prompt anyone out there (Yes that’s you Mr F) in to buying me any of these lovely goodies……..

Weigh in day week 4

This week was a really good week; I stuck to plan, planned all my meals in advance and started exercising....three weight training sessions a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and two swimming circuit sessions (Tuesday and Thursday). I absolutely detest swimming, but if it leads to a weight loss them I'll happily stick to it!
Now this is where the big however comes in...........
