Giveaway: A Right Couple of Mugs and a sappy post.

Valentines day is just peeking its pink sparkly face around the corner and so I thought I would treat my lovely readers to a cheeky little giveaway. Valentines for me has never been a big deal, we are not ones for grand gestures or schmaltz on February 14th. My opinion is pretty much that if yo…

Healthy Carbonara

Eating out is always a bit of a mine field when it comes to Weight Watchers, there are a few general guidelines but without actually going into the kitchen with a set of scales and harassing the chef (they do not like this) it is pretty much a guessing game. One of the guidelines when eating pas…

Meal Planning Monday - 21st January.

Meal Planning, meal planning, meal planning... How I love thee... Well, last week started out brilliant! I stuck to the plan, tracked all my pro points like pro. Then an unexpected invitation happened on Friday night, nearly a whole bottle of wine later and I am shoveling crackers into my face at…

I have been stupidly organised this week! I don't know if its the fact that because I am a Weight Watchers ambassador I feel I have to do well, and in order to do well I need to plan... Or if I am just having one of those rare moments of organisation that usually disappears as quick as it arr…

Meal Planning Monday - 7th January.

Turkey Enchiladas and sorting the post-christmas fridge.

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone for their lovely tweets, emails, comments etc... It is so lovely to know that I have a lot of support AND a lot of people who will shout at me if I don't stick to this! Also, to those also following WW or any other healthy plans; best of luck and we can to…

Meal Planning Monday (ish) - 2nd January.

So Christmas was rather indulgent wasn't it? It's reached the point now where I am so tired of food, I would quite happily never eat again. However, it is essential to human existence and all that... Now I am all about the Weight Watchers my meal plans will include breakfast, lunch and …
