I've had a thread on here for a while now but am finding sticking to plan really hard. I've tried a new thread before but ended going back to my old one! So here goes, another new thread with hopefully a nice fresh start.
I'm currently 10.5 1/2, I managed to get down to 10 stone a a few weeks back but have had a rubbish few weeks. My goal is 9st & Im going to dig all if my old sw books out for some much needed inspiration.
Day 1. EE
Porridge with banana (1b)
Cous cous & salad (2)
Aldi chilli & ginger salmon
Options hot choc (2)
A pint if Guinness! We went to my step dads funeral today & had a drink for him after! (10?),
Syns 14 14/105
A 5k run
I've had a good day today food wise and managed to run the whole 5k without stopping. Was only a jog mind, definitely won't be breaking any records!
Day 2. EE
Milk in coffee (1a)
1 x toast & spread (1b & 3)
Bacon (fat removed)
Beans / tinned toms / mushrooms & s/eggs
Brown sauce (1.5)

Plan for tomorrow...day 3 EE
1 x toast & spread (1b & 2)
Left over sausage & bean hotpot & rice (minus the sausages!)
Slow cooked beef stew with carrots, onion, parsnip
Pecan plait (had round my grandads, only thought it would be 10 syns max but was 19 syns!! It was yummy but not worth that many.
Syns 21 43/105
I'm impressed with your 5k run. I managed 2 miles this morning. Am hoping to build up to 5k fairly quickly.
I'm doing EE on SW too.
Can I ask - when you record your syns - 28/105 - is 105 your syns for the week? You're adding them up through the week?
Sorry about your step dad by the way. As you say - you had to have a drink for him.

I've always flexi synned, mainly because I always tend to have a blow out on the weekend so I try & save a few syns earlier in the week for it! I only weigh at home & I know some consultants dis-agree with flexi synning but the way I see it, it's the same number of calories at the end? & I always lose (if I can stick to plan) so it obviously works for me.
Have you been doing sw long & do you go to class?
Day 4 EE
2 bgty sausages (1)
Tinned toms, s/eggs & mushrooms
Hp sauce (2)
1 x wm roll with cheese & tiny bit if coleslaw (1b / 1/2a & 3)
Roast pork (slow cooked..yum! )
Carrots, peas, green beans
Syns 9. 52/105
Another 5k run!
So normally I'm a serial weigher, every morning workout fail, I hate it as it sets my mood for the day! So since Tuesday when I weighed 10.5.5 I haven't weighed myself, I asked my hubby to hide the scales! This Is a massive achievement for me & It's been quite hard BUT I'm so excited to have a surprise next Tuesday. :)
I'm hoping that only weighing once a week will help me to stay focused, weighing daily has not been healthy for me at all, as all I do is stress about the number I see rather than how I feel in my own body.
I've been going to SW classes - it does help with my motivation. I'm just over 3 months in now and have lost roughly half a stone a month but can't see I'll manage it this month.
We're going to friends this weekend which normally involves a big yummy meal and lots of wine. So I'm taking lots of fruit, yoghurt, low alcohol beer and fizzy water to try and minimise the damage! Might take my running shoes too!
Meant to say - well done on the not weighing - I've been there before and have definitely decided I'm better off not doing it. I do tend to weigh before I go to class to weigh in though. I kind of like the warning before I weigh in in public!
1/2 a stone a month is fab, that's almost 2lb a week! Well done. :)

Sounds like you have a nice weekend planned, good on you for planning to take healthy snacks, organisation is definitely key!
We don't really have any plans this weekend which I'm quite looking forward to, had so muc on lately, & when we go out on weekends we always end up eating out!(Usually rubbish) If we do eat out this weekend I will make sure it's sw friendly like a nice mixed grill or something.
My run tonight has killed me! I managed to run 5k in 35 mins. A minute off last time!
Got home and the hubby was half asleep, he's now fast asleep so I'm watching gogglebox on my tod, its so funny.
I've not touched a drop of alcohol this week, for anyone that knows me I do like a glass of wine so I'm doing well especially tonight sat in front of the box!
Day 5. EE
1 x wm roll with lf spread (1b & 2)
1 bgty sausage (0.5)
We went to harvester for lunch & it was very nice, I had a couple of salad bowls & the flame grilled chicken, jacket potato & peas for main. I'm not sure on syns, don't think it will be many so will say (10)
No tea but went out on the town & drunk a bottle of wine. (30?)
Syns 42.5 94.5/105
So yesterday we went out for the day, tool the children to an old fashioned train station. There was a cafe there but unfortunately didn't have anything sw friendly, everything was with chips so I had a plate if chips & a coffee. I've gone over my syns for the week so today will try & go very low syn & hopefully still see a loss tomorrow.
Day 7. EE
Greek yoghurt with raspberries & blueberries
1 x wm roll with bgty quarter pounder (1b &1)
Tesco healthy living chicken in Tom & basil sauce
Green beans & carrots
Hopefully with your running you'll still be ok.
I succumbed to a voucher for free cake at the leisure centre when I took my son swimming today. Coconut jam slice - so way over today :(
Had two days that were over at the weekend while we were away too so not sure what to expect. Weigh in tomorrow night so planning a run in the morning before work, fruit & yog for breakfast and homemade free soup for lunch. No tea til after weigh in. Fingers crossed.
