What’s in my bag? Slimming World edition.

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I follow the Slimming World weightloss plan and attend class. I dont really talk about Slimming World much on my blog but it is an important part of my day to day life so I thought I’d talk a bit more about it in this blog, incase those who read my blog are interested and to help others if they read this and think it could be for them too. 

So, what is Slimming World? (Just a little bit about it incase you havnt heard about it before!)

It’s basically a food optimising plan that allows you to have a bit of everything (in moderation) you can still eat carbs, and meat and of course lots of fruit and veg but it’s cooked in a healthier way. It makes you think about alternatives to higher fat foods that are just as yummy and better ways to cook these foods. 

The Slimming World plan is so easy to follow and so versatile that there isn’t much you can’t eat. It works really well for me and when I stick to it (which isn’t always, I’m only human) then the results are fab! I go to class with my two sisters and brother in law, it’s much nicer going with others! I would never have walked through the doors if my sister hadn’t have gone first.

So, what’s in my bag for Slimming World (SW)?

Firstly lets just take a look at my awesome shopping bag! I usually just grab one of these material bags for SW and pop what I need for the meeting in them as it’s super quick. I love this one, it’s so me! When I’m shopping there are just some things I can never resist.

The first thing I always put in my bag is my SW book …

The black book is your main book with the details of the plan,recipe ideas and syns, this is also where you log your weightloss. Cant go without this! 

I also can’t go without my purse as you have to pay, Β£4.95 until you reach your target weight.

Every week the person who has lost the most weight two weeks consecutively is awarded Slimmer of the week. We all take a free food in to go in the basket and this is what the winner gets. I grabbed a nice big Carrot, an apple and a satsuma! All speed foods which speed up your weightloss. 

It’s also nice to have a lovely hot drink during the meeting so I grabbed my Cath Kidson mug to use β˜•

Such a pretty mug 😍

And finally, low syn snacks.

I don’t eat much if anything after lunch on a weigh in day as my meetings at 7.30 so I eat dinner afterwards. For my snacks to munch on after weigh in I grabbed a pack of sweet & Salty popcorn from Aldi and a pink & white marshmallow, a sweet treat. (I didn’t eat all 4 I took one each for my fam)

And that’s it! 

I’m going right back to basics this week and writing this helped me too! You only get out what you put in so fingers crossed for a big loss on the scales. My aim for 2017 is to become, or get as close as I can to my target weight by the summer. Holidays and the summer holidays in particular are hard so I want to smash it until then πŸ‘Š

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it useful! Wish me luck πŸ‘

Until next time,

What’s in my bag? Work editionπŸŽ’

I’ve just bought a new bag that I love and will be using temporarily as a work bag so I thought I would do a ‘what’s in my bag?’ work edition. 

Let’s start with the bag…

This gorgeous rucksack is from Asda and was only Β£14! 

It’s a black and cream aztec print with flecks of gold embroidered through it.

It has a popper at the top and string with these cute tassel details to close it. It has an handy zip pocket inside and two little pockets that close with poppers on the front.

So, What’s in my bag?

Most importantly (in my eyes πŸ™Š) my lunch bag! this bag is so cute with 🎡’All you need is lunch! Na Na Na Na Nahh!🎡 I got this in London and it fits loads in it!

I always carry my trusty water bottle with me, very important for staying hydrated especially when you are constantly on the go like you are in my job!

A few essentials that I always have in my bag are as follows:

β˜” because British weather is always unpredictable.

Deodrant to freshen up.

πŸ”‘ keys, for home and work. (Lego Dumbledore πŸ‘Šβ˜‡)

πŸ’·my purse πŸ‘±Hairbrush &🎧headphones

And finally some chewing gum! I like the green Wrigleys extra spearmint.

I also always carry my phone but I’m writing this blog post on it atm so I can’t take a photo of it haha. I have the Samsung S7 in Rose gold.

I also always have a book in my bag but of course this changes regularly, I’ve just started reading Zoellas latest novel ‘Girl Online: Going Solo’ I really enjoyed her other two books in the series so I can’t wait to get stuck into this one.

I can definatly tell Winter is almost here, everyone is getting colds so I’ve got these in my bag as I’m suffering at the moment! Hopefully I won’t need them for too long.

That’s it πŸ‘ I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog post  

What do you always have in your bag?

What’s in my bag? πŸŽ’

I love watching ‘whats in my bag?’ videos on yotube so I thought I would do one for my blog. 

So, what’s in my bag? 

Let’s start with the all important bag! This little black bag is from Primark and was only  Β£9. I love the faux leather material & suede material on the front. The gold detailing & clasp are really cute too.

I love that it has both long & short straps too and although it looks small it fits a lot in it.

Let’s take a look inside…

I always carry my purse & a hairbrush where ever I go. I love this purse, sage green is one of my favourite colours  (one of our wedding colours too, ahhh β™‘) & the patterned birds are really cute. It’s nice and big so fits lots in it too! 

I got this lovely big Brush from Primark for Β£1.50, bargin!

I also always have a book with me & if you’ve seen my August favourites you’ll know I’m currently reading this Nicholas Sparks book πŸ‘ 

I love this body mist from Zoella original beauty range. Blissful Mistful β˜† it smells gorgeous.

Sunglasses 😎 The weather hasn’t been too bad this summer so I’ve carried these in my bag ready. I love having decent prescription sunglasses, I always hated not being able to have nice ones or just not being able to see!

I would defiantly recommend this Revolution Lip amplification lip gloss as it has such good staying power. I’ve eaten and drank and it’s still in place with a good colour. 

I love this shade ‘Joy’ it’s a lovely plum autumnal colour. πŸ‚πŸ

And finally…

I popped one of these fruity bars, from Aldi in my bag incase I got peckish around town. This is blueberry and seeds flavour. It comes from their ‘Foodie market’ range and they do lots of other yummy fruit flavours to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, let me know if you did! What do you always carry in your bag? 

Until next time,
