7 days of Healthy Breakfasts

I am * (*see bottom of post) trying to embrace my 35 before 35 list. And number 15 is a top priority. I am a serial yo yo dieter, an all or nothing person at almost everything in life and food is no exception. If I set my mind to it I can charge through weeks of meal planning, Slimming World favourites and steadily see 2lbs a week drop off, sometimes 3. 

It's the mindset bit I have to shake myself into. 

I look back at these photos of my sister's wedding as my biggest motivation. We were both at our littlest, in one, no ok I lie, possibly two different stone brackets, but at our happiest. It doesn't always go hand in hand, but on that day, in that sunshine, in those dresses, our self confidence and self belief was at an all time high. I remember Rich putting his hand around my waist during the photographs and telling me how beautiful we looked, that we looked so comfortable in our own skins. I felt like the Princess next to the Beauty Queen.

Natty and I worked really hard before the wedding to eat better, exercise more and we spurred each other on, sending photos to each other over text messages of our feet on the bathroom scales, recording the numbers going down! 

January can be the best and worst of months to start a diet don't you think? We still have overdue Christmas catch ups with family, birthday weekends with friends and the celebrations for the new small blue one in our lives has meant this Auntie has been sipping Champagne, eating leftover festive chocolates and quite frankly having a lovely time!

So I think I might start on some random February date and get back on the Slimming World horse.

We always joke you can spot a fellow SW dieter around the supermarket because their trolleys are chock full of Müller Light yoghurts! I can remember losing weight after I had Sammy, I felt like I was turning into one of those yoghurts and when a new flavour came out it was the highlight of my red and green week!

So in preparation for D-day here's 7 ideas for breakfasts to start me on the straight and narrow away from the waffles and croissants and dreaded Frosties! Not quite SW free but still healthy. 

For me healthy food when you are actively dieting needs to look like a bowl of sunshine!

*trying means not trying very hard, but I am promising myself February will be different!
