    Thumbs up santa_nethy's food diary!

    Soooo, week one came and went with a 1lb loss. After posting in a thread it was suggested that a food diary might help so people can suggest where I can improve etc. So here's goes as I start week 2...

    So, day 9:

    Breakfast
    50g of bran flakes with skimmed milk (HeB and HeA) - 4.5 syns (double serving of bran flakes)

    Lunch
    Omelette with baby leaf spinach, half an onion and mushrooms

    Tea
    Sweet potato syn free fries

    Snacks
    Cupshot chicken flavour (Aldi) - syn free
    2 clementines
    1 apple
    1 muller light yoghurt
    1 aldi yoghurt
    1 peroni beer - 7 syns
    Dolce gusto skinny capuccino with 1 sugar - 3.5 syns

    TOTAL SYNS: 15 syns

    So, how did I do? Any help / advice appreciated

    Here I am to sub :-)

    Hex's have changed since last time I was on sw and I'm not sure if you're looking at the old ones but it's now 35g of bran flakes for a heb so the extra is only 2 syns (4syns per 25g) :-)

    Also I'm not sure if you're syns are right for the peroni as it's coming up at 6.5 syns unless it was peroni nastro azzurro which is 7 syns (both 330ml bottles).

    Which plan do you follow? Xx

    Thanks miatablue!

    Good news about my favourite branny flakes! 25g is really nothing.

    It was the peroni nastro one.

    I'm doing EE. I'm not an official member but that may change today. My friend is a member and she is going to log in and show me what you get x

    I agree, I couldn't believe how little cereal you got last time. I'm not sure about milk but cheese has changed too. I dug out my old recipe bible which i made last time and I'm now writing it out again as the Hex's are all wrong lol.

    Food looks really tasty! Xx

    Day 11

    So, I was up at 5am, setting out to work for meeting at HQ. I took bits and bobs with me, but knew that we would have a buffet lunch.

    Pleased overall but how I ate today doesn't feel like a good example of how sw and eating healthier for life should work. I need to get organised, and start cooking recipes, perhaps cooking on weekends and freezing things to use later.

    Service stations are a right old pain. Although I stopped at Warwick service station and used the Drive Thru Starbucks. What a bloody brilliant idea! I resisted my usual skinny latte and had a filter coffee with skimmed milk and 2 sugars (which I'm counting as 1, because the sugar packs you get are not 1 teaspoon!). But on the way back from home, about 4pm I guess I was starving so pulled up at service station. Ignored the fast food places and headed into waitrose thinking I'll be able to get something good and use my slimming world app now that I've joined. Although they are all marked up as being good to yourself/ healthy, they really aren't. I didn't want to waste 11 syns on.a salad I like (chicken,tomato and basil), so I searched for Muller or fat free yoghurt. None. Got so fed up, I ended up with this for my lunch (see pic).

    Also experiencing bloating and... gas. Think it's all the fruit and fibre! That needs to improve!

    Enough, so here is what I've had today

    Breakfast
    2 aldi harvest moon cereal bars (heb)
    Filter coffee with skimmed milk (hea throughout day) and 2 mini sugar pack things- 1 syn.

    Lunch
    1 triangle ham sandwich, half of 1 slice of wholemeal bread- 1.5 syns
    1triangle hard boiled egg sandwich, half of 1 slice of white bread- 1.5 syns
    120g pack of chicken slices

    Tea
    4 quorn sausages

    Snacks
    1 Apple
    1 pack of snack size aldi grapes
    2 teas with 1 sugar in each- 2 syns
    Some natural yoghurt
    2 Aldi savour wheat crackers with chive and onion cottage cheese on top- 2 syns
    Small piece of sponge cake- 3 syns (book says 4 syns for 25g sponge cake with jam. There was no Jan, hence 3 syns)
    Milk delight chocolate- 5 syns

    TOTAL SYNS: 16

    Good news is I resisted the sausage rolls, chocolate bars, crisps and muffins that came with lunch: )

    Well done on resisting chick :-)

    It's amazing how much of the 'healthy' food isn't really that healthy. I made that mistake with a pack of those belvita breakfast biscuits, I had a pack of the yogurt ones thinking they were healthy and maybe even a heb, they were 11 syns for a 2 biscuit pack! Lol xx

    Day 14

    Breakfast
    harvest moon cereal bar in low fat natural yoghurt (heb)

    Lunch
    Home-made salad! Very impressed with myself. Discovered how much I love beetroot this week, so made a salad which had spinach leaves, mixed leaves, chopped pickled beetroot, chopped babycorn and chopped chicken pieces. Was yummy and syn free!
    1 muller light yoghurt

    Tea
    Beef chow mein (yes, a take away!) - 8.5 syns but had a few chips and a tiny slither of curry sauce so will count as 12.5 Syns.

    Snacks
    2 muller lights
    1 apple
    1 harvest moon cereal bar (heb)
    1 sugar in coffee - 1 syn
    1 humbug - 1.5 syns
    milk (hea)
    Shandy made from half a Budweiser- 3 syns

    TOTAL SYNS: 17.5 - but could be more as I don't really know how the chow mein was cooked, and the points system for takeaways seems vague. Chicken chow mein for example is double the beef chowmein, at 16 syns.

    Very proud of my home made salad though because I actually enjoyed it! Who knew pickled beetroot was so nice. Big thumbs up to Sainsbury's salad bar, because that's where I discovered my love for them!

    Weigh in tomorrow. Perhaps a chinese the night before was not a great idea. But then I think if this is for life, and about changing my eating habits then I'm going to have a chinese once in a while!

    Woo! Sunday morning in the scales and came in at 143.8lbs! So I lost 1.4lbs last week! And I've learnt a valuable lesson about WI days after a takeaway! x
