HellOooo. I’m SO grateful for the warmer weather where I can get out into nature and walk! We have beautiful parks all around us.
WHY SHOULD EVERYONE MEAL PLAN?
Meal planning is a great way to organize your meals for the week ahead. You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals! Click here for my guide on meal planning.
MORE WEIGHT LOSS
Since starting my weight loss journey at the beginning of February this year, I have lost 7 lbs and am down ALMOST a dress size! Now, I know 7 lbs in 2 months doesn’t sound very much, BUT, when I put on 40 lbs after quitting smoking 7 years ago, I haven’t been able to lose anything in that time. So, I guess, slow and steady wins the race!
I’m still keeping up with drinking at least 2 litres of water a day. It’s made such a difference – I feel that I have so much more energy since doing this.
I’ve also noticed that my love affair with chocolate has come to an end. I had a small chocolate bunny at Easter and, halfway through, I found I didn’t like it anymore. This is HUGE for me. It was almost like an addiction. Now, ice cream on the other hand … well, let’s just say I can’t have it in my freezer.
I loved the lunches I chose last time so much, especially the Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad, that I decided to do them again this week.
I have quite a bit of chicken left over from entertaining, so I’ve included it in this week’s meal plan:
I even managed to fit in a cheeky piece of streusel that I made. 🙂
