This year I am definitely going to be sharing my Slimming World journey with you all, my meal plan each week and if the scales were good to me.
As I didn’t really eat slimming world friendly at all over Christmas and new year I have been dreading what the scales are going to say to me on a Friday.
But I’m going to be honest, I’m going to share pictures of my body etc because I think it will help motive myself and hopefully other people.
I want to be healthy for Riley, I want to feel good about myself. I don’t want people to look at me and think ‘she’s fat’ I don’t want my grandad telling me I’ve got three chins either – don’t worry he only jokes, I hope!
So every Friday I will be sharing a weekly slimming world blog post. I will let you know what the scales say and I will be totally honest!
Each Friday after group me and my friend also go to subway for lunch, its something we both look forward to each week! A footlong and a pack of cookies, its literally making my mouth water just thinking about the cookies right now.
So this week, I have lost 1.5lbs!
Quite happy with that tbh, since I went out for tea on Tuesday and had a Pizza Hut so yeah I am happy with that little loss! But I obviously know I would have lost more if I wouldn’t have had the Pizza Hut. Oh and the few little chocolates I’ve been pinching out my box on a night.
So next week I’m going to aim for… 3pounds!!!!! Do you think I’ll be able to do it?
Going to be doing my meal plan for next week tonight and plan some really speedy meals!
Having pizza for tea tonight for my little treat for the weekend!
Have a great Friday guys! x x x x
Riley went back to school yesterday!
I actually set my alarm early to get up and ready before waking Riley up so I was verrrrry organised this morning which is one of my new year resolutions!
I woke him up and told him it was time to go back to school and he burst into tears, saying he didn’t want to leave me. Actually made me abit upset tbh. He gets so used to been at home with me and coco when school breaks up for holidays.
Once we got to school and he saw his friends he was obviously fine.
He managed to have a good day and even did PE outside for a while.
As he was so good his Auntie Alice treated us to Pizza Hut for tea which is his favourite! Who’s favourite tea isn’t pizza!
With me doing slimming world I got a flat bread pizza with lots of salad and it was lovely! Counting my syns for the next two days with that. So I will see what the scales say to me on Friday…. wish me luck!
So its back to the school runs, back to making small talk with the mummies. Haha.

Can you believe it is only 3 more days until Christmas? I can’t!
I have so much wrapping to still do! I’ve not even wrapped half of Riley’s yet let alone my families. So think I will be definitely still wrapping Christmas Eve!!!
I won a photo shoot earlier this December so I picked to have a 3 generation photo shoot with me Riley and my mum. We had our hair and make up done too! Was so nice to have somebody else do my makeup for a change. Wish I would have done my own eyebrows though as the MUA artist only filled in my eyebrows but I prefer them to be popping!
We managed to get some lovely pictures though. Riley wanted to get them all but I didn’t want to be spending loadsssss!!
Have you finished wrapping yet? 🎁
It’s our very first Christmas with Coco this year and we are so excited!
She has her own stocking which is already filled with lots of presents from Santa Paws.
At the start of December we took Coco too see Santa Paws for the first time at Dogs Trust and she absolutely loved it! Seeing all the other dogs excited too to see Santa was so heart warming, how many owners wanted to get their dogs involved and get them into the Christmas spirit too was wonderful.
I think especially when Christmas for some people is all about been with family and friends you have to get your dog involved too. After all a dog isn’t just for Christmas. They are your family too. Coco is my little baby, she’s my daughter. Lol!!!!
I am honestly looking forward to seeing Riley and Coco this year on Christmas morning opening presents together. They have this special bond and it’s just amazing to see how much a dog can care about a little boy.
Sometimes I wonder if she knows what he’s been though with cancer, I have read online before that dogs are meant to have this instinct that they know when somebody has been poorly and dogs are meant to be really good therapy for children that have disabilities or are and have been poorly.
And of course Coco will be having Christmas dinner with us too. Chicken, carrots, sprouts, roast potatoes she loves it all! She will most definitely be having a few pigs in blankets too! It is Christmas after all.
I hope you all too will be involving your dogs this Christmas, they deserves presents too. After all they give us the greatest love we could ever know everyday.
Here’s just a few ideasv of things I would suggest getting your dog for Christmas.
- Dog friendly treats.
- New toys – something Christmas related.
- Advent calendar.
- New blanket or bed.
I’ve even got Coco some Christmas Eve pjs and a Christmas dress to wear during Christmas. She loves dressing up.
🎗FOUR years ago today my heart was broken, i was told my baby had cancer… stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma.
as a family this was the worst day of our lives. we had all these people trying to tell us information about what was going to happen next & all i could think about was what riley was like only a few weeks before like a ‘normal’ child but the child that was sat on my knee now had cancer & he was so poorly.
riley had 15 months worth of treatment – 7 chemotherapy sessions, 4hours in surgery having his main tumour removed, high dose chemotherapy, stem cell transplant where he spent 9 long weeks in the same room after catching so many infections and also spending time in intensive care, 15 radiotherapy sessions, immunotherapy & antibodies treatment riley was put into remission & has been for over 2 years now.
we have met some of the most amazing people throughout this journey, riley has been cared for by the most amazing Oncology Team – his consultants, doctors, nurses and surgeons who will always have a massive place in my heart!🎗
it is the most amazing thing to see riley going to school now, making friends, laughing & smiling. he amazes me every single day and I couldn’t be any more proud of him!
Riley is and always will be our very own super hero🎗
