My Slimming World Journey | Week 4

Ugh, yeah that is how I feel this week. I had a bad week and gained 3lbs. It is completely my own fault though, I strayed away from plan, and my depression slump just left me feeling exhausted. I literally couldn't be bothered to cook, I had a takeaway. It didn't help that I was craving sweet things all week due to it being my time of the month. To much information I know. I'm drawing a line under this week, and moving on. There is absolutely no point in me dwelling on it or feeling down about it, the best thing to do is start fresh. Anyway this week I have another yummy recipe for you. 


Hunters chicken
For the BBQ sauce:
1 teaspoon of mustard powder
5 tablespoons Worcester sauce
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons of sweetener
1 teaspoon of paprika

In a saucepan mix the passata, Worcester sauce, garlic, mustard powder, balsamic vinegar, sweetener and paprika. warm the sauce over a medium-high heat until the sauce thickens. 

Lay the chicken on a baking tray, and place a slit in the middle of the chicken. pour the sauce over the chicken and then top with bacon.
Place in the oven on 210 degrees for 20 minutes.
Remove the chicken and top with grated cheese, and cook for a further 10 minutes. 


  1. I commented but I think my phone ate it.
    I know that feeling it was my ToTM as well and I just wanted to eat crap. The day I craved McDs and almost got to the drive through was the worst thankfully the queue was stupidly long do that put me off lol. Chris has also been really good at asking me is that a good choice? Should you be eating that? And it's kind of worked. I ate a chunk of Wensleydale cheese that we brought home from holiday. I was just going to take the knife to it but Chris properly got out the scales and weighed it for me. He even looked up the syn values before weighing it so I was really informed.

  2. Steph you have such a great attitude! Everyone slips up sometimes and I think it's really important to be able to move on and draw a line behind you! That recipe sounds delicious, and I think I'm going to have to make it next week! xx

  3. I have spent the last 2 weeks of the holidays surviving on comfort food and alcohol! I paid for it this morning at weigh in with a 5lb gain!! Drawing a line and moving on now!! Thanks for letting me join in with the #slimmingworldsunday linky :) x

  4. I'm glad to hear you're not dwelling on it, we all have off weeks/months now & again, we wouldn't be human if we didn't!

  5. I always find star week a struggle, my body craves rubbish! Drawing a line under it and starting fresh is the way to go

  6. Ooh that looks delicious! I'm struggling with the same issues as you at the minute, it seems to that time of the year for a few people right now. Sorry for the mega late comment by the way, only just catching up after being without internet x
