Slimming World Sunday #13

So for the past few weeks I've lost the mojo.  The numbers are still going down, but slowly.  I've been busy at work and with stressful things going on in real life, I just haven't been focused on the whole Slimming World thing.  The stressful things are still going on, but the work stuff finished on Friday, so with only half the things to worry about now, I'm ready to knuckle down and get cracking again!

I didn't do food shopping last week, so wasn't prepared at all when it came to meals and with everything that's been going on, my IBS has been flaring more than it has in years which sucks ass and has been quite debilitating.

So yesterday, as wrecked as I was, I did the food shopping.  I must have had a mini seizure or something because I decided to go to Aldi at 3pm on a Saturday bloody afternoon!  But I knew if I didn't do it then, I'd not have time today to do it.  So I got lots of fruit and vegetables and stocked up on my rice and pasta.  It felt great seeing a fridge full of fresh things and I'm looking forward to getting back into a schedule, snacking on fruit and drinking more water.

I might start Instagramming my meals again because when I did it a few weeks ago, it really helped me stay accountable.  I'm excited to get back on plan and focus!

I just wanted to give you a little heads up because this is life.  Sometimes things get in the way of our journey and we might end up taking the scenic route rather than the fast track.  In the past, I would have thrown in the towel and gone back to my old ways, but even with everything that's been going on, I've still been conscious about what I'm eating.  With the clock going forward, I'm looking forward to longer walks in the evenings with Bailey, trying new dishes and starting to see bigger weight loss numbers again.

Now, next Saturday is Joanne's hen night and so there's no guarantee I'll have a blog post up on the Sunday!  But we're both resolved to be extra good all week to allow for any naughtiness that might occur on Saturday!

Toodle pip old chaps and thanks for reading my waffling this week!
