Getting back on track – daily food diary 

So guys I’ve been so off plan it’s unreal. Two weeks ago I gained 9lbs shocking! But I went through a lot and my binge eating has been out of control.

Two days ago I managed to get some strength and motivate myself to get back on track properly. I got an SAS log and using my planner from Little Things Planners. So I thought it would be great to share with you my daily meal plan. I am also doing insta stories (videos) going through the food and diary as to how I use it so make sure you follow me on Instagram 😉

Tuesday meal plan


So I’m not doing great having my full hexa. I find it hard because no vegan cheese is hexa and I don’t drink all the almond milk. So something to work on. With the SAS log I’ve realised I’m writing after I eat, like way after so I need to reflect and change that. I must admit I’m super hungry but that’s adjusting to being back on plan and getting used to what I can eat on the fodmap diet within slimming world. 

Also the dots on the page represents toilet habits! I hadn’t poo’d in over a week so this was awesome! So I need to see how many times I go and how long between. IBS is not fun.

Any questions please leave them below. 

Thanks guys and remember!

Little Things Planners – Food diary 

IMG_0435.JPG

I have a had a tough week with one thing or another and I ended up with a gain of 2lbs. I want a 100% week and what better way that than to use a food diary. You can get normal diaries off your consultant but I wanted something for myself and that was tangible. I thought of creating my own or using a journal but then I saw these journals on Little Things Planners on instagram.

The diary is clean, clear and laid out very well. You have your shopping list, meal planner, activity, water tracker, daily food diaries, including healthy extras and syns. I have spoken about the diary in my latest youtube video.

It is printed on quality paper and it has a plastic cover to keep it clean. I can be a messy pup at times!

I am so ready to tackle the week ahead and with my planner in toe, it will keep me in check.

Something else I received was a weight loss chart. It has 70lbs on it and every time you lose weight you colour in a circle! I am quite excited for this, I am a visual person, so I will be putting it up in the kitchen along with my certificates. So I can watch it being coloured in as the weeks go on and once I finish it, I will finally be at target!! This excited me greatly!

Please head over to Little Things Planners and check out the designs. Everything is customisable and I love that it has my initials! Anything personalised really floats my boat! The customer service is amazing and the turn around of custom diary’s and charts is quite quick. Impressive!

I love my diary! Check back next week to see how I did. If you don’t follow me on instagram you can by clicking here and you can see my daily diary 🙂

**Disclaimer; I was sent this diary to review from Little Things Planners. I wasn’t asked to do a review or video, no sponsored content, I genuinely love the product and that’s why I am sharing with you.

Sweet Freedom (Review)

Do you ever find a staple product and always have to have it? Well thats how I feel with Sweet Freedom products. If you have been following my blog you know I am following Slimming World and being a chocolate and honey lover well that makes it difficult, until I found Sweet Freedom. For each of their products it is only 1/2 syn per level teaspoon!! Yes you read that right!

Sweet Freedom has 5 different products;

I use the syrup (which tastes like honey/maple syrup) in my over night oats, pancakes, baked oats, over fruit and nuts. The choc shot I use over ice cream, fruit, pancakes, baked oats, to bake with and a hot chocolate! The hot chocolate is so good when it’s made with Choc shot and Almond unsweetened milk!

I was so surprised by the taste of the syrup, it is a beautiful and thick syrup. I was worried that it wouldn’t be thick because it is so low calorie and vegan friendly, but it is! Heavenly! The same applies for the Choc shot, it is thick and has a gorgeous taste. I have raved about it that much in my Slimming World group around 50 members have bought it in the last few weeks, as we have our own group page and I always share my baked breakfast which all have Sweet Freedom products used in them.

Each product for me serves a different purpose depending what I am in the mood for. Recently I was inspired by the Slimming World HiFi macaroon bars and made Chocolate macaroon baked oats, where I used the Choc shot coconut which worked a dream.

When I fancy a Terry’s chocolate orange the Choc shot orange spice hits the spot! I bake with it then add some over the top, delicious!!

The syrups are perfect for pancakes and waffles, yum! I am getting hungry just thinking about those. Waffles are my new obsession and the syrups are like the icing on the cake.

The things you can make with Sweet Freedom products are amazing. If you check out their Instagram and website you’ll be blown away by the range of recipes and how other people are using the products ever day. The fact it’s low calorie and a vegan product, makes it top marks! It is a staple that I could not be without, I use it almost everyday and replace it every few weeks!

You can purchase Sweet Freedom products from Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Boots and many other stores, which you can find here.

COMPETITION to Win the set of Freedom Freedom product ends 30th September 2016.

A little stop motion I created:

Salted Caramel Breakfast Muffin recipe 

Morning all!

I have been sharing my favourite breakfasts over on Instagram and I’ve been asked a few times for the recipe, so here it it.


You need:

  • Blender
  • Silicone muffin cases
  • Muffin tray
  • 2 x Weetabix (hexb)
  • 2 Eggs (protein)
  • 2 cap full of Salted caramel extract
  • 1/2 Mullerlight toffee (free)
  • 1 tsp (1/2 syn) Sweet Freedom Fruit Syrup
  • 1tbsp (4 syns) Nutella
  • Sea Salt

Put the weetabix in a blender and blend into a fine powder. Then add the sweetner, eggs and extract, then blend together. Once combined add the muller light (it also works well with vanilla sprinkled with dark chocolate) and Sweet Freedom fruit syrup (dark is my favourite) then blitz all together.

Now spoon the mixture into the silicone moulds, I put my moulds into a muffin tray to help keep the shape. Then the oven will be on 200 degrees for 25-30 mins.

I like to switch the oven off and leave them in there for 5 mins to cool down.

Then once you take them out, use the Nutella to top the muffins and sprinkle some sea salt over the top. 

Have some speed with your breakfast keeping it on plan 😬

Such a nice treat and for breakfast how can you say no?

This mixture will make 5 muffins and if you use the syn amounts I have provided it will be 4.5 syns and hexb for the 5 muffins, making them (rounding up) 1 syn each. 

If you want to syn your weetabix instead of using your heathy extra b you can, just make sure to check the syn values in your book or the slimming world website. 

All syn values are correct at the time of posting this recipe, if you’re viewing at a later date please check the syn values to protect your weight loss
I hope you enjoy 😘
