Wow! What can I say! SW Woman of the Year. To say that I’m completely blown away by this award is an understatement.

After weigh in I stayed on for IMAGE Therapy (a motivational class attended by SW members lead by a SW consultant, Celina).  We all had to vote for a member who was worthy of this award, little did I know I was one of the nominees.  I then had to speak about myself – basically the SW equivalent of the 1st round of The X Factor and convince them I was worthy of this award.  Spoiler alert: I won.

I couldn’t have done this on my own without the support of Slimming World and all its lovely members! An amazing eating plan, with great recipes and a fabulous support network.

So here I am looking for inspiration for dinner tonight with my Slimming World recipe books, magazines, iPad etc all over the table. I’m flicking through page after page of mouth watering dishes. It’s so hard to decide! Eventually I chose to make the Moroccan chicken – I’ve had this before so I know it is a tried and tested dish. It is so easy to make using spices from my cupboard, which I have to confess are quite a few!

For this I have used courgettes, red onion, red peppers and sweet potato. But any vegetables will taste good with this dish, so fill your boots!

Today has been all about body magic and flowers. I had my iPhone ready to capture the beautiful gardens at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, breathing in the scent of so many different fragrant, dizzy with the perfume of the lilies and other such beautiful flowers. It really was a day of body magic too as I wandered around for a third time, clocking up 10,000 steps on my FitBit.  

All this body magic was making me hungry! Luckily for me a good selection of food was available in the food court. I chose a prawn and noodle salad, followed by a fresh fruit salad, washed down by a bottle of water. Though I must confess, sticking to the flower show tradition, I had fresh strawberries and champagne. Well, when in Chelsea!

A confession:  I’ve never owned a pair of trainers. I now own 3 pairs. And I regularly attend Zumba classes. WHO AM I.

I cannot believe how good it feels after a Zumba workout 💃 hot, sweaty and knackered but exhilarating. I have always felt embarrassed prancing around in front of people, scared of not being able to follow the dance moves, people looking at me but hey, guess what, I love it.

Zumba is a great place to make new friends, have a laugh and most importantly, lose weight.  Bring on the next class!

Hello spud, where have you been all my life! Haven’t seen you here in a long time – had to cool the romance for a while and introduce myself to some vegetables as the obsession with you was clouding my brain! All I could dream of was jacket potatoes 😴but now your back!   💚

I ❤️ Mother’s Day, it’s a day in my life when I’m made to feel even more special than usual. Flower’s, cards and the company of my family.  
Lunch of fish, salad, sweet potato, Slimming World Coleslaw and couscous.  So I’m on a diet! It doesn’t mean I have to stop living, So I better not think about the Chinese I ate in the evening and the three glasses of wine! But boy, it was worth it.

For my husband’s birthday I decided to make a healthy SW Indian meal instead of just ordering a takeaway, especially as a few of us are trying to eat healthy. So now was the time to use my SW Cook books instead of looking at the pictures! I decided on Chicken Tikka Masala especially as this is everyone’s favorite plus a few vegetarian meals.  

I spent the day preparing the food as the tikka had to marinate for a few hours and then sauces had to be made ready for the next day. I made a King Prawn dopiaz, marrow fat pea curry & chickpea dahl and a few shop bought poppadoms and Nann bread, which obviously I had to eat (flexible syns). All these recipes can be found in the SW Fakeaway Book.

How to resist chocolate ❤️

I decided to make some cakes using my healthy extra ‘B’ choice to satisfy my craving for something sweet. These were so easy and hit the spot! Plus I can have a little fun with my photos too!
