WEEK 6 - week off plan

Hey guys,

So it was my birthday last week, we went to London for the weekend AND Pancake Tuesday happened, so it wasn’t the worst week to have off plan…….

London was great fun, we done LOADS.. arrived early Sat morning, we were in the Science museum by 10.30, then I got cupcakes from The Hummingbird bakery (unbelievable)
We got the tube to Harrods for a walk around.... went to a yummy steakhouse for dinner that done a duo of cheesecakes for dessert (need I say more:-))

Sunday - we had breakfast, queued for the natural history museum, dinosaur expo was CLOSED!!! I was gutted!!
Then we went tube hopping to visit, London eye, big ben, Westminster & MI6 building....
London eye, big ben, Westminster & MI6 building

After a busy morning, we went to visit Hamleys & hit Oxford street for some retail therapy….


I also saw people with Hummingbird bakery  bags, so tracked it down and had a slice of Rainbow Cake (highlight of my trip)
We strolled thru Selfridges to avoid the rain & went for Dinner in Covent Gardens in Maxwell’s (delish)

Hummingbird Bakery

We were very lucky to get home on Monday.. the early flight was delayed in Stansted by 8 hours!!! we walked passed them and got our flight and were only delayed by 45min over the winds in Cork!!!!

I was very happy to be home but exhausted after the weekend!! my legs are still heavy!!
We did 17,000 steps on Sat & 28,000 steps on Sunday according to my Fitbit!

I took Tues off work, himself went to work, I hit the couch and ate lotsa pancakes :-)

So I happily accepted my 4lb gain at Slimming World and plan to get back on track ASAP

January is finally over…. Can I get a woohoo J Hello Spring & February

Star week and birthday week for me which see’s me going waaay over my syns on 3 days!!

Woke up feeling better, went to Spinning and hopefully sweated out the end of whatever bug I picked up!!
I was careful with my food today “just in case”
Dinner was a Chinese take away 8 syns and having 3 chocolate biscuits put me over my syns for the day but counting it as a win!
1 hour Spinning & 1.5 Litres of Water & 23 syns

Today started well, breakfast * lunch were on plan, I got my food shopping in for the week BUT we had visitors for the afternoon and I let myself get too hungry and also Hangry!

Today is my birthday, 32.. how did that happen!!! My birthday surprise is a trip to London THIS Sat (lucky me)
So today at work I cancelled cake (we always get cake when there’s a birthday in the office!)
My 3 main meals were 100% on plan (lunch was 1.5 syns for light cheese triangle) So that when I went to my parents for dinner, I was able to join in the “party” with my nieces and nephew & have birthday cake
Cake pushes me over my syns, but I’m ok with that…. It is my birthday after all

I feel like the weeks are going faster because I’m telling ye about my day every day.. HOWEVER I think its helping me to stay on track!!
I really need a plan for the weekend tho! How do you all cope with being out of routine and a near empty fridge til shopping day (Sundays for me)?

Didn't feel great when I got to work, so just had boiled water with lemon all day! Decided to go to the early weigh in... I was down 2.5lbs, bought some new bars to try and left!!! I did have a small bit of dinner in my mums and it stayed down and I had some Salt & Vinegar crisps to see if it would help with the nauseous feeling... it kind of did and I got some sleep!! So felt ill all day but didnt get sick, probably because there was nothing in my stomach!!!
