This time it's forever or Dieting for Disney!
New start, new diary.
A bit about me- I'm a 30 (soon to be 31) year old mummy to dd4. I have a very hectic work lifestyle which involves shifts, some long days and some nights. I fell off the wagon when I started working shifts and now I'm back on it!
I'm going to Florida (woo hoo! ) in July next year for my first proper holiday with my little family and I want to feel fab in summer clothes. So that is my aim date for target.
So far I've been on plan for 2 weeks and I've lost 9.5lb. 7lb in my first week.
Weigh in day is Wednesday.
Onwards & downwards!
Started off today with a yummy lunch-
1/2 tin of beans
2 free LM sausages
A fried duck egg
Yum yum & all free! Really hoping for a decent loss this week. My 1st award is in sight and I'm chasing it!
Well done on first 2 weeks loss - we are both starting at a similar point and I have lost 11 pounds so far
Today I have drunk absolutely loads! It's been another beautiful day and very hot. Been drinking pint after pint of sf squash and water and had a couple of de hazelnut coffees too!
1/2 heb 1 weetabix biscuit crumbled up and mixed with strawberries and a choc orange Muller. Had a coffee too and a hifi light (1/2 heb).
Salad (leaves, cherry toms and peppadew peppers) with birds eye inspirations
Fish- tomato (1 syn)
Dinner- chicken curry with mixed veg and pilau rice made with the knorr curry flavour pot (2 syns- so 1 as shared). It was nice but not as nice as pete's peanut butter curry which is amazing and I wholly recommend it.
Supper- champagne silver magnum (13 syns)
Feeling sorry for myself today. Hot & bothered, ate something I can't syn and made the fatal error of weighing myself & not happy
Was a cake day today at work for charity. Loads of cake, crazy amounts! Anyway, I decided to have one thing- caramel shortbread. Same size as a Costa one and they are 22 syns I believe so we'll go with that.
Breakfast- banana while I ran out of the door!
Morning break- apple and caramel shortbread (22 syns )
Lunch- macaroni cheese mug shot (2 syns), apple, muller, hi Fi bar (heb)
Afternoon break- hifi (heb)
When I got home- banana
Dinner- lm sausages, mixed veg, baked potato, hea cheese.
Today is green. Total 24 syns! ?
Today has been a little stressful! Been good though and not indulged in any of the cakes still at work. As I've just started I'm a little wary of anything I can't properly syn.
Breakfast- banana on the run again- I need to get up earlier!
Break- skinny Costa flat white (approx half hea), 2 X hifi light (heb)
Lunch- creamy cheese mug shot (2.5 syns), apple, muller
On the way home- Starbucks flat white (other half of hea)
Dinner- baked potato, birds eye inspirations lemon, mixed veggies.
Snack- galaxy ripple 8.5 syns
Total 11 syns.
Weigh in tomorrow!
Today is green!
Breakfast- 3rd porridge oats (heb), muller & strawberries
Break- hifi (heb)
Lunch- mug shot (2 syns), strawberries, muller
Dinner- lm sausages, mushrooms, beans & 2 fried duck eggs
Treat- magnum 13 syns
Total syns 15. Hea is milk for tea/coffee
Today was also weigh in. 1.5 off which is exactly what I hoped for & total is 11lb in 3 weeks!!
I'm 3lb off my 1 stone award. Hoping to achieve it within the next 2 weigh ins
Today is an extra easy day. Feeling very determined now I've just got 3lbs till my stone award. So I've planned out my food till Monday. Lots of superfree, I can do this!
I can also definitely see that the weight is coming off! I've got a long way to go. I think I'll be aiming for 5-6 stone off but it all depends on when I reach a point that I'm happy.
Brunch- bacon sandwich, fat cut off, no spread on a heb wholemeal roll. 1 syn for 1 tbs ketchup. After I had a bowl of strawberries, blueberries & an orange muller. Followed by a hazelnut coffee with milk from my hea.
Dinner- a Greek dish made in the slow cooker with beef, garlic, chopped toms, stock, cinnamon and orzo pasta. I forget the name of it. With salad and peppadew peppers. Zero syns!
Update on dinner-i didn't like it much. Too much cinnamon!
Treat- champagne magnum 13 syns
Total 14 syns

Good luck on your journey!! Am hoping to go to Disneyland in 2016 and need to shed half my body weight by then lol! Hope you get your 1st award!
I'm feeling much better today. Cold is going and I feel like eating again also tried out my actifry for the first time & I was impressed! The chips reminded me a bit of chip shop chips but without the grease and mess of a deep fat fryer. I see 1 tbs olive oil for them. 6 syns for the spoon so 2 syns each divided by the 3 of us.
Breakfast- strawberries, blueberries, muller with cherry under layer (2 syns)
Lunch- bbq beef mug shot (yuck!), 2 apples, free muller.
Dinner- birds eye inspirations cod in tomato & rosemary sauce (4), chips (2), mixed veggies.
Total = 8 syns

So today I had a good day on plan breakfast and lunch. Dinner was off plan. Which I think is okay. I'm determined that this is not a diet, it's eating normally! But sometimes you are allowed the odd treat. This is my first meal off plan in almost a month. Here goes:
Breakfast- 2 X weetabix, banana, hazelnut coffee. Hea & heb used.
Lunch- mug shot, apple, 2 large satsumas, muller light.
Dinner- Mexican! Really enjoyed this although I feel like my tummy is overfull and feels a bit uncomfortable.
Starter- nachos with pulled pork, cheese, salsa, jalapeños, sour cream.
Main- chimichanga filled with pulled pork. Rice & salad.
Dessert- Warm chocolate brownie & ice cream.
So now I'm off to bed. So tired! Got a sore throat, possibly the lurgy is on its way!
Back on it now! Got my bbq pulled pork cooking in the slow cooker. Going to have that for tea and lunch tomorrow. Plan is lots of superfree and cutting back on my syns (10 a day instead of 15) should help me still have a loss this week. That's the plan anyway, we'll see. Not had breakfast today as I wasn't hungry (not really suprising! ). So ill update later with my meals. I'm off work today but ill be spending the rest of the bank holiday weekend doing 12 hour shifts at work. Boooo! !
Lunch- free mugshot, big bowl of strawberries, blueberries, banana, orange muller, meringue nest with 1/2 tbsp choc shot drizzled on top- 3 syns.
Dinner- pulled pork in a wholemeal roll (heb), chips made with olive oil (2 syns), salad.
Total today=5 syns. Within my goal!
