Healthy, yet Expensive Household

As you may know from previous posts, I have been following Weight Watchers (WW UK) and at time of posting this I have lost 21lbs in those 18 weeks. My eating habits have really changed but yes, I still have ‘cravings’ or fancy a high pointed item or meal. I try to have these onContinue reading “Healthy, yet Expensive Household”

Have Yourself a Merry Little…

Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, Las Posadas…whatever you celebrate or don’t celebrate. I wish you all have a lovely end to 2019 and a great start to 2020. I had a great weekend with my office’s Christmas Party on Saturday and then at work on Sunday, we were all a bit worse for wear andContinue reading “Have Yourself a Merry Little…”

The Holidays are Coming!

Just over four weeks until Christmas at time of posting this. Where did the year go?! Are you finished with your shopping? Have you decorated already? Growing up my family had a tradition of putting up the Christmas tree over Thanksgiving weekend.

Firstly, just a little rant about cinema goers. So all of the cinemas nearContinue reading “Hold on Tight. This is gonna be a bumpy one!”

When you’ve been eating healthy…

So four weeks ago, my doctor referred me to Weight Watchers in an effort to lose weight so I could be eligible for knee surgery as I’ve advanced arthritis in my knee. Although I’m “too young” for knee replacement, they’d be willing to do some scraping surgery to get more room between the bones inContinue reading “When you’ve been eating healthy…”

Cooking for One…sometimes Two

Being Single and cooking can be difficult but I think I’m finally getting the hang of things now. I don’t think I’ve ever done so much cooking from scratch in my LIFE! Now, instead of grabbing a quick bite from Gregg’s at work or takeaways at night, I’m batch cooking healthier recipes and separating themContinue reading “Cooking for One…sometimes Two”
