Weight loss Update

Hello!

Wow its been a long time since I updated, but I’m back… I promise this time as I have now fixed (I hope) my laptop and I will be able to type away every day! I thought I would start by doing a Weight Loss update… as this is what I originally started this as a blog for my weight loss, so I will give you an update!

So back on July (3rd I think?!) I joined Weight Watchers, as people who know me and follow me on Insta know Slimming World and I were not working and mentally I was getting really down about not loosing weight and I needed to do something about it. I found myself choosing Weight Watchers as I think really the App on your phone, the barcode scanner for when you are out and the fact I wasn’t constantly thinking… this is free I can eat as much as I want of it, would hopefully reign in my portions and get me back on track!

Fast forward to today, November 5th, and I am loving the plan, I have shed just over a stone in those 3 month, not a great deal, but I haven’t gained either, so overall this year I have lost just over 2 stone since January, am I happy? I’m bloody ecstatic, but it makes me even more determined to work towards my target.

I am not going to lie, its not been easy, I haven’t really done any exercise but walking, I have been walking round my village to get my steps in and it has helped, gone are the days where I would waste money on expensive gyms, go for 2 weeks then after that I would go when I remembered! You know what its like!

So yes I am happy, I am enjoying the plan and I am also enjoying the freedom I have with it, I like the fact that if I want to use more points at the weekend then I can, I don’t feel guilty about stepping on the scales on a Monday morning anymore. I have only joined at home but I do plan on joining a local class when I am nearer target to get a little more support, but we are not near the magic target yet!

I have taken this picture and updated it yesterday. This is me in July 16 – then August 17 – November 17 – Hopefully you can see it as well. I’m super happy and cant wait to take another one at Christmas!

Weight loss Nov 17

Well that’s me signing off for now! Need to get those steps in!

Princess Planning WW Planner 

*This is not a sponsored post, I haven’t been asked/paid to do this* 

So around 3 months ago I swapped to Weight Watchers (WW) as I had lost hope with SW and I wasn’t getting anywhere, and honestly it’s been a breath of fresh air for me! It’s kickstarted my diet again and I am back on track and doing better than I have before!

I came across Princess Planning on instagram and I fell in love with the Filofax type Diet Tracker and knew as soon as I saw it I had to have one 


      The lovely Black Filofax Style Planner 

I fell in love as soon as I saw it and I knew I had to get my hands on one! I quickly popped an order in on Sunday Night and by magic it arrived Tuesday Morning. 

You can buy 8 week inserts to pop in this planner and they range from SW/WW to Calorie Counting. Perfect for anyone want to keep a track on their diet. 

You can choose a wide range of covers that can be personalised so there is something that will suit everyone’s needs. 


   A view of some of the pages in my planner 

There are lots of helpful pages that come with the diaries and they include: 

  • Weigh in page 
  • Measurements 
  • Weekly food planner 
  • Shopping list 
  • Goal and Motivation page 
  • Daily Food Dairy inc goodies Water and exercise 

Lots of helpful pages to keep you on track and if you purchase the planner it also comes with some lovely memo pages which you can use to track recipes or doing longer lists for shopping, I am keeping my tracker with me as it fits in my bag so I am also using it to jot down notes and other bits when out and about! 

Over at Princess Planning the lovely Charlotte has a wide range of accessories that can keep you in track whilst on a diet! I’ve picked a few of my favourites below! 

             Handy magnet fridge planner 


   Lovely weekly meal planner for the family

*Review* The Little Cookie Dough Co. 

Just want to make everyone aware I was not asked to do this or given any free products! 

So when I came across this company on instagram I was sold with the fact I could purchase delicious cookies ready to bake at home for 4 syns and they have tasty toppings as well… they were a must purchase and I couldn’t wait for them to arrive! 


Box of the cookies when the arrived 

So I picked a selection of cookies and toppings which ranged from gingerbread cookies, chocolate and mint aero, lemon and whites chocolate and my absolute favourite vanilla and Oreos… dream combo! 

I couldn’t wait to bake the cookies when I got home, I baked 4 different ones and I have to say there are AMAZING! For 4 syns, and a tasty little treat when you are craving sugar they really do hit the spot! I was that excited I baked the rest the next day! 


The amazing baked cookies

Honestly you need to go over to the instagram page and make sure you order some of these cookies! The customer service is second to none as well, fantastic customer service and couldn’t be more helpful when picking flavours and toppings. I honestly will be ordering more this evening as I can’t get enough of these cookies! 

As I’ve said you really need to try these cookies, please head over to @thelittlecookiedoughco instagram page and have a look at the amazing selection of flavours and toppings 

Hope you have enjoyed reading this, I know it isn’t much, but I just wanted to share my joy over finding slimming cookies!

All about me

Mondays Rambles!

Well I haven’t dedicated a lot of time to this recently but I’m back! I want to take the time to make sure I update my blog every week at least three times a week! 

Not a lot has changed I have been in my new role for 3 months and I love love LOVE my new job.  It’s a little like my old job however it’s completely different in the same sentence. I can’t believe I have finally found a job that I am excited and happy to go to in the morning even if it means I’m stuck in traffic! 

In other news I’m spending more time on ME! I had a fabulous holiday away with my boyfriend and I can’t wait to go away with him again. He literally makes me the happiest person and I can’t wait to see him again this weekend.

Sometimes things work out… sometimes things don’t but right now I’m happy, and happy is where I want to be! 

I’m going to pop a review on now and I can’t wait to tell you about some amazing cookies I have had this week!

All about me

London…

What can I say… these last couple of weeks event have been devastating, the world is cruel and we shouldn’t have to live in this world of hate and destruction. 

I love London. I visit often each year and I always feel safe. This will not stop me from visiting as we need to stand strong and fight together. 

I hope everyone in London stays safe, and my love goes out to everyone

Skinny Bakery Delivery 

I am so excited! 

I have been pondering over ordering The Skinny Bakery products for a while but I finally did it last week and it feels like it took forever for them to get here! 


I ordered one of everything as I’ve not tried them before and I have to say first impressions… they look delicious! 


They came packed in the box with cool patches inside to keep them cool! The cakes need to be refrigerated or you can freeze them for up to 6 months! Perfect for those little treat days! 


I unpacked mine straight away and wanted to get tucked in! However I controlled myself and I have popped the Syn Values on all of the packets so I know what I am eating!

The most Syns in the pack is 10.5 Syns… which I can live with for cake! Haha all jokes aside that’s brilliant for some bitesize cake, and if I’m honest I would probably be sharing a pack with someone or only having half a pack! At just over 1.5 Syns per Gingerbread Man I can’t wait to get stuck in! 


I have worked on the 20cals = 1syn principle so they may not be 100% accurate on Syn values but good enough for me! 

I am looking forward to reviewing these products and I know I’m going to fall in love ❤️
