Dinner Win!!

I totally had an amazing win for dinner last night!  It was so good that The Boy declared it one of my best kitchen experiments, ever! After coping a mouthful of abuse from a dickhead on Facebook, I was a bit disheartened in my Slimming World cooking efforts.  I felt that I should be making…

Avoca-do or don’t?

  According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot. The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and…

Quick! Feed Me!

Do you ever have days where you think that you will pass out if you don’t eat quickly enough?  Or, where you’ve had such of a bitch of a day at work that you just want to eat and then collapse into bed and binge-watch something suitably trashy on Netflix?! If you don’t, you’re not…

Over Night Oat Pancakes – Version 2

Following my previous post about pancakes (here) which I wrote ages ago and forgot all about, I thought I would update you on my new discovery straight away… I couldn’t find where I had written down the ingredients and measurements to make pancakes the same way as before, and was not having my brightest day…

Over Night Oat Pancakes

Bit of a jumbled name there, but you get what I mean. Now, these pictures are not going to be pretty because I manage to eff up the actual cooking every time.  The one time I didn’t, I was so hungry I stuffed them in my face before I could even think “camera”! American Pancakes…

Self Sabotage

Hands up who does self sabotages?  No, seriously.  Do you?  I need to know.  Am I the only one? I am the queen of self sabotage.  Today is just the latest example.  I can pull 101 excuses for it but I honestly don’t know why I actually do. Let me explain….

Burger Blow Out!!!

This past weekend saw my Dubai Anniversary.  I landed in this weird adult Disney World 6 years ago.  I don’t think I ever meant to stay so long, and have certainly spent a chunk of that time planning where to escape to next, but this is my home. (I also am far to lazy to…

White Choc & Raspberry Baked Oats

I ran out of week this week.  I had planned on making some more breakfast burritos but with bacon instead of beef.  I am still going to make them at some point, but not today! I knew that I would need something different for breakfast after the same for two days, and 4 days of…

Setting Goals

Do you have goals?  Not just for weight loss, but for other areas of your life? I don’t.  I am not a planner.  I know that you will find that hard to believe when I am so OCD about planning shopping lists or vacation packing lists, or touristing lists, but I just have missed that…

Breakfast Burrito

After a weekend of binge eating (and the shock of getting weighed this morning) it is time for me to be good again, otherwise I will just continue to get fatter and fatter – and fatter again. I knew it would be a bad gain.  I also knew that I would feel like shit about it…
