Overnight Oats

I have been toying with the idea of joining Slimming World since I am struggling to get back on track since Christmas. I was very fortunate to maintain my weight over Christmas through some miracle after enjoying the luxuries of roast beef with cauliflower cheese and all of the trimmings, chocolate log, cheese and biscuits and of course plenty of chocolate! *drool* Even thinking about it is making me want to eat it again!

Seriously. Cauliflower Pizza!?

Every now and then I hope to feature blog posts relating to recipes and healthy eating in general. If I find a meal I like, I tend to rinse and repeat so it’s not that often I’ll try something completely new but I have seen recipes for Cauliflower pizza base flying around the Internet and I have to admit, I was intrigued.

I love pizza.  Pizza on the other hand doesn’t like me.  I’ll happily take my mum to Pizza Hut and devour part of a stuffed crust pizza with mozzarella cheese oozing out of the sides.  Pizza is unfortunately laden in fat and calories so not very useful if you’re on a healthy eating plan.  The Pizza Hut website is one of a few that does tell you the nutritional information of the food that it sells so it’s easy to calorie count and work off the excess in training either before you go or many hours later.  Did you know that 1 slice of large Stuffed Crust Hawaiian pizza contains 255 Calories and 10 grams of fat!?  I can easily sit and eat 3 and that’s restraining myself so before you know it you’ve wolfed down over 700 calories of pizza without including any starters, salads or drinks.

A New Direction For My Blog

I haven’t been posting anywhere near as often as I would like recently and that is due to a few factors. Firstly, lack of time has been a major problem and my constant strive to get higher quality photos, better topics and my constant need for perfection towards anything that I do in general. Nothing I do ever seems good enough in my eyes.

The second reason why I haven’t been posting any outfit of the day posts and fashion related articles is because where I am in training, my hair is pretty much wet all of the time and I’ve been living in baggy clothes. I’m not one for using a hair dryer as it takes too long with all my hair!

After much deliberation and a plea for help on twitter earlier today, I’ve decided to diversify my blog posts and mix them up a bit. I don’t want to lose my existing readers, nor alienate anyone but because much of my life consists of my weight loss journey and fitness I would like to throw some of these blog posts into the mix. I’m going to be trying new recipes and variations on popular meals and snacks made in a healthier way and I would really like to share some of these with you as well as generally updating everyone on my progress.

I’d just like to say that the decisions behind my weight loss journey are purely health related. Myself and Mr FH may try for a baby in the new year and I want to be the healthiest I can be to give us all the best start in life. Plus I don’t want nurses constantly moaning at me about my weight during checkups. It took me a long time to get comfortable with the way I looked from years of bullying and unacceptance from people, but I’m in a different frame of mind to where I was on all my previous weight loss attempts. For once im not focussing on the scales or clothes and I’m focussing on me.

I really hope you’ll continue to read my blog and I promise I’ll be posting some outfit of the day posts very soon!
