After only starting slimming world this week I am still tying to get my head round it all. I came away with the books and lots of useful information but now is the time to digest this info and put it in practice.
I had a banging headache yesterday and have put that down to two things; not drinking as much coffee and not having my usual breakfast bar (The healthy one, that was 8 sins!) I also went into a panic as we have friends coming to stay this weekend so how do I get round that without falling at the first hurdle.
I think the answer has got to be planning. So as today is my day off I took myself to the supermarket with my slimming world app and searched for healthy free foods. I only got a few bits as my Tesco delivery is due today but I really needed to get my head round healthier buying. Even though I thought I had been doing that all along.
The app is great as you can put in any food and it tells you if it is free or has sin value. So I was able to check on food as I went along.
I have never liked tea but felt I needed something to drink at work instead of the copious amounts of coffee I drink. I found Twining’s, Cherry and Cinnamon tea, which is actually very nice. A bit like a non coffee version of a gingerbread latte. I know this is quite ridiculous but this has taken a weight off my mind, I was a bit of a grump at work yesterday without my gallons of coffee so this is a good substitute.
I also came across mug shots, they are free so on those days I feel like I am so hungry I could eat a student I can have one of these. I also discovered Knorr stock pots are free, that is great as I can use one of these with garlic to make mushroom chicken instead of wine.
So yes I am feeling better, I have decided to cook chili this weekend as I can have that with rice and salad. The others can all have garlic bread and sour cream too but I will be saving my sins for wine.
