Meal Planning and Motivation

The past few weeks have been hard. Problems with my eye, another upper respiratory infection and sinusitis have meant I've not been exercising or watching my weight so much- eek. However, now that I'm feeling better and November has arrived I've decided to sort myself out with daily Zumba sessions and calorie counting.
I'm still going to make the most of the slow cooker with some hearty winter foods but I shall be controlling my portion sizes and thinking about a pretty dress I want to fit into for the fast approaching party season!

This weeks menu

Slow cooked lamb stew and dumplings
Slow cooked chicken korma and rice
BBQ Pulled pork with potato wedges and salad
Spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread

Friday we are eating out with friends at our local Indian restaurant and Saturday my mum is cooking for the entire family.

My weight loss motivation for the week is...

Will your slow cooker be making an appearance this week? 
What motivates you?

Have a great week!



  1. Good luck. I know it's so hard. (I already have an excuse for Zumba tonight - I've got a cold.)

  2. The slow cooker is an amazing invention! I hope you're feeling better soon, good luck with your zumba! x

  3. Hope you're feeling better soon!!
    Slow cooked lamb stew and dumplings!! Yum! I would love that but no one else in the house likes lamb :/

  4. I made a beef stew in the slow cooker this week and plan on using it again this week for a chilli or a pumpkin stew. I am motivated by clothes! I need to lose a stone at least to get back into a favourite dress. Sam x

  5. I like everything on your menu, especially the korma.

  6. Hope you are feeling better love the motivation of the week sign x
