Hi all!! I had a fab group last night. We really focused on the power of superfree and a fab tool we have at slimming world called success express. I do this a lot and I love it!!!! If you’ve never tried it why not give it a go. You don’t have to do it for a whole week, you can just throw in a few days to boost your losses. Or feel free to try it daily. Or if you’re struggling through the summer, kids being off school, change of routine, bbq’s and so on, success express can really really help you to reduce any damage.
How Success Express works:
1. Follow the 2 to 1 plate principle
Have three Success Express meals a day. At each meal, follow the 2-to-1 principle. Fill two-thirds of your plate with superhealthy Superfree Foods. Then on the other third of the plate, have your choice of Free Foods (from any choice). For example, have a jacket potato and tuna (1/3) with a huge side salad (2/3), or rice and barbecue chicken (1/3) with Superfree vegetables (2/3)– without weighing or counting.
2. Choose your Healthy Extras
Add one or two Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices and two ‘b’ choices every day. You can add your Healthy Extra to meals, for example by having a sandwich made with a third of a plateful of ham, two thirds of a plateful of salad and two slices of wholemeal bread from a small loaf. Or just use them as snacks.
3. Fill up on Superfree Food
Between meals, enjoy Superfree Foods (fresh or frozen fruit and vegetables). You can add Healthy Extras to snacks too. Fat free yogurt such as muller lites are superfree too as well as eggs and quorn on this plan. Personally I prefer to stick to superfree in the book ie the yellow pages, fruit and veg for a bigger loss.
4. Enjoy 5 to 15 Syns a day
Where Syn values differ, count the higher value. Eg if a sausage is 2 on red but 4 on green, you count the higher syn value.
That’s it!! I’ve shared some photos too to help you visually see how it looks. If you also search my blog for a feature on superfree is the key, there’s loads of creative of ideas of getting the 2/3rds superfree in.
Any questions feel free to ask.
I got to spend the day today with more members in a morning class in my team. Their consultant J is just wonderful. Stunning, motivational, caring, warm, I just feel so proud of her!!! There was lots of great food talk, the weight losses were amazing and a lot of them put this down to scan bran!! One lady is flying!!! She has it with cottage cheese or makes pizzas from it! This week she’s trying the carrot cake. Scan bran is sold in class and it’s 5 for a HEB or 1 syn a slice. It will literally keep you full for hours and hours!!!
After visiting the class I popped in to see one of my lovely members in house of frazer. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect foundation. I tend to use mac or double wear by Estée Lauder, but I really wanted to try the Dior air flash. It’s described as this:-
The go-to solution for professional makeup maestros, Airflash brought the airbrushed perfection of spray foundation to daily makeup rituals.New from the Dior laboratory comes an Airflash formula that is lighter and silkier than ever for a fabulously even, flawless finish. Paraben-free and suffused with fresh natural oils that evaporate as soon as they land, it settles imperceptibly as a silky-smooth film with long-wearing coverage but no visible texture. The result is instant: a super-smooth, velvety complexion that feels like a second skin, full of radiance and glow.
Sounds good to me!!! I’ll let you know how I get on.
I also needed some moisturiser. I’ve been using the no.7 new day and night cream, alongside the serum, but I’m not very impressed. I like my skin to feel noticeably softer and clarins has always done this. They’ve got a special promo on too where you get a pic n mix of samples!! Can’t wait to try them all!!!!! I used to use the early correction fluid but now I’m getting older I’ve moved on to the extra firming day cream lol. How depressing!!! I’ve heard fab things about this cream and the lady who works there has the most amazing skin ever and she swears by it. Fingers crossed I’ll wake up looking 18 again!!! Yeah right ha ha.
While I was there a little old lady came up to me and said how cool my heels were, really made me smile. She actually said cool sandals lol. I always try and compliment people, genuinely, not in a patronising way. I think it’s really nice to be nice, it could make someone’s day. So if you think someone’s hairs nice, perfume, make up whatever, if you think it tell them 🙂 They might be having the worst day every and you’ll just give them that much needed boost.
So this was lunch. Smoked salmon omelette, salad and pizza topped mushroom. Lots of superfree as normal for me this week. I adore smoked salmon in omelettes.
Ok got to dash, more calls with my lovely team now, then support for my class.
Happy Fopping xx
