I had a break from my routine last week as number four started the week with fracturing his foot and number three, four and me all had a horrible sickness bug at the end.
I tried to stay on track but didn’t want to get disheartened so I didn’t recorded my weight and just got back to it this week!
As I’m sure you are all to aware the worst thing to do when you are trying to stick to a healthy eating plan is to open the cupboard and find nothing suitable to eat, or to be out and about and not have a healthy snack to hand and find yourself stopping for a quick fix.
For me I start the week with a shopping list and have meals planned for each day. That way I know what I’m getting and it also saves money!
My slow cooker is an absolute saviour and 50% of my evening meals are prepared in here so there is something healthy for the whole family to enjoy. I carry a bag with things for me and the little ones to graze on such as fruit, dried fruit and oatcakes so it puts of the temptation to pick up those naughty treats when your out.
I husband has a karate tournament next week and I want to feel more confident at the after party on my dress so it will be hanging up on my bedroom door as a reminder to me to keep up the good work.
Cut down on carbs for my evening meal

You should try eating carbs at dinner and cut them down during the day hours instead. That way you become more insuline sensitive and utilize them more efficiently. Moreover they release serotonin the feel-good hormone and prepare you for a good night sleep.
Thank you very much. It’s not something I’ve ever considered before but I will give it a try.
Oh what a rubbish week for you, I am glad you are feeling better and good luck with your plans for the next week 🙂 #weighloseorstay
