Soulful one pots...

One pots are great when you're in a hurry, or you get home late, are hungry and don't want to hit the loaf of bread in your bread bin... These are in Aldi at the moment and whilst a little high for half a pot with zero veggies and protein you could have a pretty quick dinner in a few minutes! 

Anyone tried them out?

Salad dressing pots - ALDI

These little 40g pots of dressing are a godsend if you're not the kind of person to use up a bottle and it's hanging in the back of the fridge for the summer! SPs are per pot! They're at the lunch stop part of ALDI where you buy the salad bowl, protein you like and then the dressing... 

Anyone else tried them out?

Don't stop...



We've all done it... got into the dress, made the communion pics better, got into that next stone bracket and then clapped ourselves on the back and marched off into the sunset thinking 'sure I'm brilliant at this weight loss lark!' Most people I know on this journey me included, never stand back and applaud ourselves... I'll never be a size 10 and I'm perfectly ok with that... but there are days when you're a bit stumped and you think 'feck it I'm never even going to make it to a size 18!' and we can't just be proud of how far we have come already... we should be! Today stand a little taller and remember where you were at the start line, even if the start line happened this morning... you've got plans, you're feeling positive about you, be proud that you're a mum, a great driver, a funny and fabulous friend... be proud of you! 


You write YOUR story...


Anyone got a saboteur in their life? Anyone got someone in their ear telling you 'You're FINE the way you are!' 'you don't need to lose weight...' 'You've always been the fun jolly one...' 'You'll just be miserable all the time with your diet food' ? Anyone?

When you decided to take the step to feel better about yourself, to take control of your health, you did it for a reason... Maybe it started out as 'getting into a dress for a wedding...' but when you feel better about you, and you feel in control no one has the right to push you off your pedestal and make you feel like you don't deserve more...

No matter when plan you're doing... Slimming world, Weight Watchers, Counting Calories, just making better choices and going for a walk every day... you're doing it for you... don't let anyone derail you... this is your journey... your life and you're in charge!
