My meals plans this week

I have tried to postpone my breakfast as far as possible because then I don’t get hungry that easily.

So how I do it? I wake up and have my coffee (with a drop of skimmed milk) and then I try to get 1 litre of water in before breakfast.

For breakfast I love Omelette. I add all sorts of dried greens on it such as chevril, dill and minced garlic and onion powder.

Lunch is usually either Noodle Nosh or Cottage Pie.


I always try not to have my dinner before 7pm, when I will make Pasta Carbonara and oven baked Chocolate Brownie. I always leave the middle part soft, so when eating it, there is a gooey middle.

When I get hungry in the evening I make sure that I always have jelly in the fridge. I use Orange Zest Water Flavouring to make it, which is my favourite.

I’m pretty much stuck with my habits – so I repeat the same routine every day. I do use my treats every week. So sometimes when I get really hungry or feel like having something extra, the Wafers are a great help.

I also love the Crisps – which I always use on a movie night – or when I am watching telly. This used to be the moment when I snacked in the past, so they are a great help.

I’ve downloaded an app on my phone called Water Drink Reminder, where I log all my water intake. This means I don’t have to think about it too much, and I can make sure I am getting  my 4 litres each day.


I’m taking a small break from the Bars right now – although I think I will make an order soon. But the reason behind it is that I started cheating – and even though I have allowed myself to have a piece of a bar rather than blipping, I felt that I started eating them a bit too much. So yes, I’m trying to have a normal routine now – without any temptations 🙂

What I overcame this week…

I had several social occasions this week – I had my college friends staying with me for 4 days. We went out and they had drinks etc – I had soda water with ice.

Although it was difficult, in some ways it was also easy.  I enjoyed cooking for them. I love the smells when I cook and sometimes it is as good as the food itself.

It was a stressful time and I thought I will slip – but I didn’t. The only thing is when I was out and away all the time, I lost count of my water intake.

But I am very proud of myself – because my friends were kind of critical about the packs and the speed of my weight loss – but I stayed strong. After all, I am doing this for myself not for them!


What have I learnt this week?

On this journey I learn something every week and sometimes every day.

This week reminded me why I am doing this, but it also taught me something about myself… That I am actually stronger than I think I am. I DO have it in me to succeed!

How I felt over the week?

I felt really good, because I went clothes shopping and discovered that I have moved to another size now. It really lifted me.

I have had some stomach problems but that is because of all the protein I consume. But it is nothing that I couldn’t overcome.

My breath seems to be getting worse – but Listerin strips are always there to help me.

Thanks for watching and reading!

See you next week,
