Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 60 (BIG-ish news)

Time for this week’s healthy lifestyle update and I must just say that this week was rather … interesting. Ahem. Because … and it’s no big deal because it’s very early days, but I’ve started seeing someone. As in *gasp* a new man friend.   Yes, I didn’t think the day would come either when […]

Healthy Living Update – Week 58 (I’m Practically a Pork Scratching)

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s healthy living update. I’m going to get straight to it and talk about my weigh-in.   I have my weigh-in on a Saturday morning and as I mentioned last week, I go to the gym to use their scales because they’re so accurate. Plus, if I lose weight, […]

Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 55 (when you realise you’re not immortal)

Healthy Lifestyle Update – Week 54 (A Bad Back & A Big Loss)

Time for this week’s newly titled, Healthy Lifestyle update, and it has been a pretty interesting week.   Remember me saying last week that I would be veering more towards calorie counting from now on, using the My Fitness Pal app (although Lifesum looks pretty cool too) … but would still be using some Slimming […]

7 Delicious Slimming World Dinners

When I first started Slimming World, I know one of the things that I struggled with was keeping my meals varied and interesting. As you will know, if you follow my weekly results blog posts, I’m surprised I don’t look like an actual salmon (I’ve gone through several weird salmon addiction phases). Suffice to say, it’s […]
