#OperationBelleBell week 2

I have totally sucked this week at taking photos of my meals! I have been so busy that I have forgotten until either I’ve finished or I’m halfway through. Thankfully I’ve still had a mostly good week. I wrote a meal plan at the beginning of the week, and mostly stuck to it. The days… Read More #OperationBelleBell week 2

Of treats and cheats

A FIVE POUND LOSS! I am thrilled that this weeks hard work has paid off.   I know that that is not maintainable long term and that’s fine, but it’s such a great start! It’s exactly what I needed to keep me going. This week, I am aiming for 3lbs loss. This will get me… Read More Of treats and cheats

#OperationBelleBell Week One

I’m going to do a weekly food diary with other bits of half interesting information, mostly to track how I’m feeling as well as what I’ve actually eaten as anyone who’s struggled with their weight will know, it’s not just about what you’re eating, and with slimming world, it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle… Read More #OperationBelleBell Week One

Procrastination and Motivation

I’m avoiding writing a few things that I want to, which is a contradiction in itself! However, since dad died I’ve been thinking a lot about life and happiness. I’ve been feeling quite “stuck” and motivated to change things. I’ve started seriously purging a lot of clutter and I have much less patience for negativity… Read More Procrastination and Motivation

Me and Mine Project 2017 – February 

This month will be a very short post I’m afraid. After writing last month and thinking about how I needed to get a photo of “my house family” – this is including my mum and dad who we live with, and how I realised that we didn’t have one. And then, suddenly and without warning,… Read More Me and Mine Project 2017 – February

Tiny Tots Playgroup, Preston Review

  About two months ago, I saw a post on one of the local Facebook selling groups, gauging interest in a playgroup. The poster, Zoe, had realised that there is a lack of places to go with young children in Preston, particularly in our area. I have found the same problem given that I am… Read More Tiny Tots Playgroup, Preston Review

Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup Back when I first started Slimming World in 2013, I remember we had a taster night, where everybody brings a meal and we all try each others.  This soup was brought by my beautiful consultant, Laura. It looked absolutely gross – a strange brown water solution.  However, I love trying new things, and will… Read More Mushroom Soup

Ribble Steam Railway Museum, Preston Review

On 30th May, which also happened to be a bank holiday this year, Myke and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. Time has flown! We have had many adventures in that time though, not least the birth of our son. I have loved (almost) every moment of our marriage, and long may that continue! Myke… Read More Ribble Steam Railway Museum, Preston Review

BBQ Pulled Pork

BBQ Pulled Pork We are a family that love diner food.  It hasn’t helped us much since most of it is very heavy in calories due to the fat, the sauces and extra cheese.  My husband tends to gravitate towards BBQ foods such as ribs, or pulled pork so when I found this recipe, I… Read More BBQ Pulled Pork
