#MealPlanningMonday - 27th June 2016

Last week I didn't bother with meal planning, I was too poorly. I started feeling a bit off on Sunday night so went to bed early, but then woke up on Monday to find my stomach had swollen to twice its normal size, I'm fat to start off with so you can only imagine my horror at waking to looking like I'd swallowed a beach ball in my sleep! I couldn't roll one way or another to get out of bed. Luckily Squiggle had stayed at his dad's house for Father's Day so I didn't have to panic about trying to do the school run. I initially put it down to bloating from my IBS but by Wednesday it still hadn't cleared and a trip to the doctors was needed. They confirmed I had an infection and gave me a course of antibiotics. It took 4 more days for the swelling to go down. Yesterday I finally looked like my normal self and actually started to feel a bit better.

So last week we just ate basic, simple food, that didn't require much cooking and I will admit to a takeaway or two. This week we're hopefully going to get back on track. Also this week I will be trying to kick start a diet of some description ( mainly from the horror of swelling to twice my size, and also because I have a school reunion coming up in August ). I'm thinking of just ditching the sandwiches at dinner time and filling up on salads as I always feel hungry again after eating bread!

Anyway the plan for this week is:

  • Lamb, mash & peas
  • Chilli con carne and rice
  • Jacket potatoes with either cheese, beans or coleslaw
  • Chicken Fajitas
  • Thai curry
Hope you are all keeping well, and have a great week. x
