Weekly Meal Plan and Week Ahead - Week Commencing 14th November 2016

Last week was amazing but tiring. Spending two days travelling for five hours really took it out of me but having the opportunity to visit the legendary River Cottage made it worth it! I am in the process of writing up a blog post that will be live this week telling you all about my adventures but I will tell you that the food was out of this world, it was simply outstanding, and I got to stand at the table where Hugh works his magic.

Despite eating out on Tuesday and drinking wine I was surprised to find that I had lost 1.5lbs. I went to Slimming World hoping to maintain last weeks loss so when I saw that I had another loss I was delighted. So far I have lost 10.5lbs and am aiming to loose 3.5lbs this week so that I can get my first stone off. After just four weeks I have found that I have started to automatically select the healthier foods.

This week I am starting my Christmas blog posts. I am going to be sharing my top Christmas foodie tips as well as healthier Christmas treats. Tomorrow I am going to be outlining my Christmas posts and introducing some of this seasons must have foodie treats.

Now back to this weeks meal plan. This is what we will be enjoying this week...
