Too Sweet!

This week I was really good and did a lot of planning and prepping:
Overnight oats meant I could get breakfast ready in the evening when I had more time.
I made sure that the leftovers from our Sunday roast (Slimming World friendly of course!) were used for salads.
I tried to make sure half of my plate was full of speed foods.
I made some lovely Slimming World recipes.
I did lots of walking and exercise.
And this is what I saw on the scales!
I think the problem I have in the weeks after Christmas is that I have a tooth that is sweet.  Now normally I can control it but, over Christmas, I really let myself go and why not...it is Christmas.  The trouble I have is reining it in after Christmas.

I'm going to enjoy this weekend, it is my birthday weekend so no holds barred, and the I'm cutting out the sweet things from Monday.

I'm going cold turkey so wish me luck :)

Thanks for stopping by
Jo xx

I am wishing you luck!

You are making me laugh, though. I had been wondering whether to nip out to the shops or make do with what was in the house until tomorrow. Your lovely food pictures have made me think I'll go out

Oooh! Birthday time....have a WONDERFUL one....& I hear you on the sweet tooth thing. I figure if I've have one choccy I might as well have two. The odd thing is, if I don't have any, I actually don't want them...go figure! I reckon they put stuff in them to create cravings!!! ANYWAYS....ENJOY your birthday..... next week you can worry about the weight. And you didn't put any on, so that was a bonus:):)
