This week I'm biting the bullet and trying to attempt to take control of my eating. So this week I'm grabbing the bull by the horns and attempting a week of a family-friendly, easy slimming world menu plan.
I don't go to Slimming World meeting but I have previously lost weight by using this method also, it's the only way I can think of that will allow myself and the other half to eat the same food. he's a big eater so hopefully, I can have him on board from the start.
I mentioned in yesterday's post that James does all the cooking in this house and as a professional Chef he didn't look too amused when I told him I was taking over but I know I need to do this.
So, meal planning is not what I anticipated writing on this website but loads of you messaged me after yesterday's post - Thank you SO much. Without further ado. This is what we will be eating this week.
I shopped at Aldi.
I needed all the ingredients for this week's meals plus additional cat food, shampoo, conditioner, nappies, tea & coffee. I stockpiled fruit and veg for snacks, some additional items for the littlest one and plenty of cooked breakfast staples for James. James has a cooked breakfast most days and I don't mean full English but in general, he will eat eggs of some variety. I knew he could still do that while following a bit of Slimming World so I stocked up on things he liked to tempt him to stick with it.
Total Spend £50.03p
I have the above image printed out and on the fridge ready to go - Wish me luck. I'll report back next week, either with a week 2 - or 'I can't meal plan to save my life' post.
