The sun is shining the sky is blue and I'm feeling really inspired to get my weight loss back on track. It's fantastic getting a job but its playing havoc with my diet. I start work at 12 which is before I would normally have my lunch and finish at 4. I have been having small lunch in the car before I start work and then find myself snacking on all sorts of things when I finish! I realised that on most days I don't even eat a proper sit down hot dinner at all as I never get round to it.
What I need is to be much more organised and plan ahead and get things ready in advance. Or maybe I could get someone to be organised for me by using something like a Diet Chef diet plans. They do the organising for you! All your meals arrive in a box for the week and then its just a case of popping it in the microwave and a calorie controlled meal is ready very quickly.
A couple of my friends have successfully used Diet Chef in the past but I was deterred by thinking it was an expensive way to diet. Having looked at their site today they now have plans that work out at £5.57 a day which seems very reasonable to me.
There appears to be enough of a variety to prevent boredom setting in as you go through the plan. Having put in my details it gives me an estimate of how many calories I need a day to lose 1-2 lbs a week. Then you get a choice of hampers with 3 months, 2 months or 1 month options depending on your total weight loss required.
As a single parent having adult meals all controlled makes it easier to deal with the daily routine. My children have a hot school dinner so don't need a main meal in the evening but I do. So I have signed up for a 3 month plan which gives the best value for those of us in need of losing more than a stone. Watch this space to see how I do!
