Weekly Meal Plan - Week Commencing 19th December 2016

Before I tell you about my week I must apologise for the lack of a weekly meal plan last week! I did plan but just did not get round to writing about it, sorry.

Last week was manic. I felt like I was never in. There were school events on, shopping to be done and shows to see. The twins have now finished for the Christmas holidays but J still has two more days to go. The twins are absolutely full of it at the moment. This year, now that they are 4, they really get what Christmas is about and are so excited. It is lovely to see but I will admit, it can be exhausting! This week I am planning to keep them as occupied as possible. Today we are going to have brunch with Santa so that is today sorted. The rest of the week we will be going out walking and doing Christmas activities at home.

As for Slimming World, I am on track to reaching my first target. Two weeks ago I went a day early as I had a poorly twin at home so I went in the evening once the hubby was home. I was amazed to have lost 3.5lbs and achieved my club 10 target. Last week I lost another 2lbs and have now lost 22lbs and got my 1.5 stone award. This time something has clicked with my weight loss and feel that I am not on a diet as I eat a lot, but the difference is, this time I am eating a lot of the good foods.

Now on to this weeks meal plan. As the twins are used to having a hot dinner at school I am going to try and keep that going for them during the week. I will be either making them easy dinners at lunch or making extra the night before for them to have the following day. 

This is what we will be enjoying this week...
