Wow. I didn’t realise it had been so long since I wrote my last musings post. Over one whole year in fact. Truth is, since then, I’ve rarely been in target. I honestly don’t feel like a target member; I haven’t done for a long time. I look at Slimming World diamond members (those who have been at target for a year or more) and I think –
How do you do it?
A lot of us are on diet and exercise plans, sticking to them like glue, making sure we never skip leg day, and always have a smoothie in the morning. But that can take a lot of time and energy to keep up with, and thus a lot of people become disillusioned with it; it simply takes too much time, and they need that time for other responsibilities in their life!

One of my favourite Easter treats are Mini Eggs – not so good when I could sit and eat a whole sharing pack though!

A pasta bake is a great staple meal for Slimming World members, and I’ve previously shared a few on the blog. This one doesn’t create a lot of washing up as there is no pre-cooking on the hob, of anything other than the pasta. It’s basically a “throw it all in, and sit back and wait” type of dish! I’ve used dried breadcrumbs to top this one instead of cheese; they just add an extra bit of crunch. Though you could top with cheese too if you like, using your healthy extra or synning it. Read more
