Trying to lose weight before the wedding! (Green and occasional EE days)
Hi everyone, I'm mijdge and I'm 23. I've put on a fair bit of weight over the past few years, going from being a sporty schoolgirl to a not very sporty teaching assistant! Buying my own food at school using money from my part time job was my downfall, and going to uni for 3 years, so now I'm going back to basics! I've also been playing roller derby for the past year or so, so my aim of being the sporty dynamo I once was is back in motion.
I started my food diary yesterday, so here goes:
Breakfast - scrambled eggs with no fat or butter, baked beans, 2 Quorn sausages (2syns)
Snack - cherries (was going to be grapes, but they'd gone manky.. it's what you get for buying them for 99p..)
Lunch - Quorn pieces, peppers, onions, petits pois, garlic, chillies, Henderson's Relish, tomato puree, 30g cheddar (HExA), 1tbsp olive oil (HExB), couscous, huge lettuce!
Dinner - Curry - 1tbsp olive oil (HExB), 1tbsp curry paste (Patak's Mild) (2syns), carton of passata, tomato puree, carrots, spinach, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, all the spices, with rice cooked in stock.
Snacks/syns - 175ml glass of red wine (wedding planning is stressful...) (6syns), Pez Candy (1.5 syns)
Total syns - 11.5 (but I didn't drink all the wine, so I'm feeling quite virtuous!)
Is that looking ok? Is it ok that my HExB are the same (olive oil?) TIA x
