Prep Co.

I spotted these in Tesco the other week and thought I'd SP them just to see how high they were... I'm always wary of things like this, they always tend to be high in hidden sugar and salt... Remember when you're working out the points for dried processed foods you need the nutritional information of the product 'as prepared' ... e.g. weight for one of these before you add water is only 68g - the points would be very low, whereas once the product has been re-hydrated it's 243g, it's how you should be pointing it... a mistake I've made many times and just something to be wary of... All of these are different weights when prepared so I've added those in too... I've tasted the mediterranean one and it was very filling... you'd easily get two good lunches out of one tub if you were doing chicken and lots of zero heros...  anyone else tried them out? x

Self doubt...



Why do we always doubt ourselves? Why do we always think the worst, hide ourselves away and think 'sure I'd be rubbish at that' and not bother pursuing something that we might really love? Why? 

I'm as guilty as the next person believe me... with every blog post I think 'what am I on about?!' but I love doing it and whatever the trolls and haters think I let them... the only thing we should be doubting is how much we can actually achieve! The sky is the actual limit if you really believe it... 

If you really believe you can feel happy in your on skin, then the only thing stopping you.. is you!

It's not about calories, or scales or dress sizes... these are just some of the tools we all use to gauge how we're doing... the really success if looking in the mirror and feeling good about yourself and that takes lots of tools... when we doubt we can do it, we set ourselves up for failure... we give ourselves permission to stage dive off the wagon and use food to silence the emotions... 

So don't doubt you... doubt how far you can go!

Wind yourself up!




The bank holiday is over here in Ireland... we're all back at our desks and the sun is hiding again... Whatever happened over the weekend, it's done... we can't go back and change it, we can dwell on it and make ourselves miserable or we can rev up and just take it one step at a time... 

Wind yourself up today, give yourself 5 minutes to do a meal plan, a shopping list, text a friend and meet up for a walk... just don't let what happened last weekend ruin your week...
