Perfectly Perfect Sweet Potato Chips 💖

Hi guys if you follow me on Instagram you will see I promised to post a recipe for my Perfectly Perfect Sweet Potato Chips.

This recipe serves 2.

What you will need:

  • Baking tray.
  • Tin foil.
  • 1 Large sweet potato.
  • Fry light olive oil.
  • Fry light garlic oil.
  • Schwartz Perfect Shake Chips.

Method:

Line your baking tray with tin foil.

Spray with Fry Light Olive oil.

Next peal and chop your sweet potato into chip shapes.

Place the sweet potato chips onto the baking tray and spray with Fry light Olive oil.

Sprinkle over some Schwartz Perfect Shake Chips.

Next is the messy bit. Get your hands stuck in and rub the seasoning into the chips to get an even coating.

Give them a spay with some more Fry Light Olive oil.

Then put them in the oven at 200° for 10-20 minutes. Turning halfway through. 5 minutes before the end of cooking spray with Fry light Garlic oil. 

And here they are out of the oven.

The finished product dished up.

New year, New me!

Hello everyone, it’s been a while!

I am going to try and dedicate to my blogging more this year. As well as my Slimming  World journey.

As you know from my last post I rejoined Slimming World for the 3rd time in October but this time with my husband in toe. 

So far it’s been up, down, up, down. Loosing then gaining, loosing then gaining.  For both me and my husband, and on this new Slimming World profile I’ve not even reach half a stone award yet! Which is bringing me down, even more so because I wish I hadn’t rejoined as a new member and wish I’d kept my old profile, as I’m now chasing awards I’ve already received before. And up until Christmas I was at almost 4 stone loss in total. But I can’t change that now. I need to treat this new profile as a new chapter in my weight loss.

Speaking of Christmas we had a wonderful one. It was Scarlett’s first Christmas, bless her. And we definitely did not stay on plan!

I was off plan from a few days before Christmas to new years eve 🙈 resulting in a 7lb weight gain when I went to group on Monday! Which honestly I am happy with as it was over 2 weighin’s (I missed the one right after Christmas) and I ate whatever I wanted. But in all seriousness it’s time for the weight to go!
New years eve I purchased myself a new fitness DVD

Scarlett’s SuperSlim Me Plan 💖

Which I road tested on Sunday, and I can’t wait to get better at it!

I also set some aims for the year. 

And now? Well it’s time to smash it of cause. No more up, down, up, down. Just results! 

Thanks for reading.

Love Sarah x

Happy to be back

So yesterday morning me and my husband went down to my old group to join Slimming World together.

I’ve been looking forward to being back for a while and as always evenyone was lovely.

Weighed in and I am now 4.5lbs away from 4 stone loss altogether since April 2015. I am really hoping I will reach it next week! 

So how did yesterday look?

Chocolate orange porridge. Yum!

Breakfast was 40g oats with whole milk, 14g raisins, orange and 1 tsp chocolate shot.

Alpen light topped muller light

In group I had 1 hi fi bar then when I got home I had an alpen light topped muller.

Iceland Slimming World chicken and chorizo paella with added broccoli

A very late lunch was Iceland Slimming World chicken and chorizo paella which I added broccoli to for speed.

Quorn mince veg packed chilli jacket

Dinner was a throw together very filling quorn chilli Jacket. I also had a snack of  apple and watermelon before dinner.

Syns yesterday where 2.5 I was going to try and have the required at least 5 syns, but I was so full after dinner I couldn’t manage anything else.

Healthy extras yesterday where:

A – 175mls whole milk X3

A – 30g cheese

B – 1 hi fi bar 1 alpen light

B – 40g oats

I get 6 healthy extras because my baby is 4 months old and I am breastfeeding.

Not keen to wean!

On the 27th September Scarlett turned 4 months old. I weaned both my boys at this age, but I am terrified to wean Scarlett.

Scarlett is our rainbow baby and is that bit more precious. I worry about EVERYTHING. I’ve done this twice before but I worry so much more with Scarlett.

I have said I want to try and wait till the 6 months. She’s very keen at this stage. Eyeing up our food. Trying to grab our food. But I don’t want to mistake that for curiosity. 

I was pointed towards baby led weaning, which makes sense to try considering I do baby lead breast feeding. I came across this page about Baby lead weaning which I found a great read. I felt like a weight was slightly lifted.

I’ve only ever done weaning starting with baby food cartons/jars or fresh blended vegetables. So the finger food stuff came after at 6 months.

With my boys it was completely different. They were on hungry baby milk as they were very hungry, breast feeding had ceased weeks before due to feeding problems which I have learnt since having Scarlett it was down to them both having tongue tie. My boys needed early weaning.  But Scarlett seems to be getting on fine with the breast milk.

Going to keep trying to wait as long as I can. Wish me luck!

Hello again happy baby!

Today I got my happy baby back! A baby that has napped, a baby that hasn’t fed loads and loads! Aww Scarlett I did miss my happy baby!

Scarlett is also 17 weeks old today! 

Time is going so quickly. She’s developing so well and learning new things!

Today Scarlett mastered the art of blowing raspberries for the first time.

That’s when she didnt look like she was chewing on a wasp.

She has been her lovely happy self today! I think after all she might have had a little upet tummy bless her.

I’m quite happy for the normal Scarlett to stick around for a while. Please lol!

Where is my happy baby?

Hi guys so I wanted to become more proactive with my blog and what better time then when I’m tied down to the sofa for the hundredth time feeding. Ha!

Scarlett is 17 weeks old tomorrow. She’s been what I’d describe as a perfect baby slowly working upto sleeping through the night, napping in the day, quite and happy. 

The last few days it’s been like someone has let a bomb off. She’s either hardly napping or like today not napping at all. Nap’s that she has had where one or two at about 30 minutes. But today nothing, nada, zilch! 

She’s crying ALOT more 😦 even when picked up. She can scream till she’s hyperventilating. Not seen her like this before. Feeding is all that calms her down. But can she be that hungry? To feed almost all day with minimal breaks in between (she’s breastfeed)

I keep thinking maybe it’s another growth spurt and she’s trying to get my milk upto what she needs. I keep thinking is she really hungry and thats why she’s screaming. I know she’s very over tired. 

Hate seeing my gorgeous girl like this 😦 hopefully be a better day tomorrow…
