Last week, I didn’t stick to the meal plan too well… I forgot my lunch for work on Tuesday, which meant I ended up buying a baguette and cake from the local Deli. The baguette was huge so I saved half for Wednesday’s lunch too – at least the calorie content was halved, sort of! Meal planning only works if you stick to it!!
A has done really well during his time in London, managing to make good choices whilst eating out each day and even found a gym he could attend on a pay-as-you-go basis! We visited Manchester yesterday (Sunday) and went to James Martin’s restaurant for Sunday dinner which was yummy!
This week, I’m planning on trying some new recipes we haven’t made before. This is partly to keep our meal planning fresh and interesting, but also to prevent us getting bored of eating the same things each week and then binging on a takeaway… Although, I would love a takeaway! A is out again on Thursday night so there’s just O and I to cater for then but the remainder of the week should be as normal. It’s also A’s birthday on Sunday so I’ll be making a slap up tea for us then! So here’s our plan for next week…
