New year, new attempt at Slimming World!

Ha! So my previous attempt at blogging my slimming world adventures lasted a whole month! I think i managed to stick with slimming world until about my birthday in june when it all went pear-shaped and my life got exciting!

Since then, i've changed jobs, and bought and refurbished our new marital home. It took us 6 months from start to finish, but we're more or less done now! We had our christmas dinner in our new house with both families, so that was awesome!

Now my life has settled down again, the new job has settled down and the house is in a state that I can start cooking things from scratch again. The downside, however, is that I've put on any weight i lost last year.

SO, it's a new year, so I figured it'd be a good time to start again! Hopefully it'll last a bit longer this time! I don't really have a goal date, i'd just like to lose about 3-3.5st. It's doable!

My official weigh in day will be a friday, however i'm using today as a dress rehearsal to get me back into the swing of things! So, today's menu of the day is below:

scrambled egg & beans

tomato & herb pasta n sauce
waferthin ham
28g cheddar cheese grated (hexA)

not decided yet, but something with chicken I think!

aldi low fat yogurt 5.5syns

Looks ok, and I seem to be pretty full up so far (had lunch about an hour ago!) I'll be doing my shopping tomorrow to stock up on lots of lovely SW goodies to snack on NOM! I'm really looking forward to getting back into it now.

I've got a little bit of competition at work too. We're all following different plans, i'm on SW, one is on WW, one on complan, and the other is doing the bootcamp programme at her local gym, so it'll be good to see who sees the biggest losses.
