From flabby to fittie!! (mostly red days)
I've been following Slimming World for two months now and only managed to lost a dismal 2lb Now I must admit to having a few meals off plan in this time, but I would have hoped that the weight would be shifting a little faster. I have been following extra easy and making double amounts of my tea to take to work at lunch, having looked back over what I have eaten I have noticed that this has meant I've been consuming A LOT of carbohydrates! Now I know you can eat these freely on EE, however I do think that they may have contributed to me being unable to lose weight. With that in mind I have decided to try and ramp it up a bit by switching to red days, my mum did these and lost weight quickly and easily and cutting out white carbs is what most health & nutritionists suggest is the key to losing weight! I'm not overally clued up on the red plan having never followed it before so I thought that I would start a diary so you lovely people can point out where I am going wrong and also so I have something as motivation! I'm also logging this on MFP to try and keep under my recommended 1200 calories a day!
Here are my goals for this week (weigh in is tomorrow so this is for next weeks weigh in):
- Lose 2lb
- Avoid 'white' carbs
- Eat syns throughout the day instead of having an evening 'treat'
- No crisps (I always end up eating more than one bag)
- 10 syns a day
- 3 x lots of exercise
- Lots of SF
Monday 10th July
B - 1 x apple (SF) & 1 x nectarine (SF) + 1 x Aldi Benefit Apple & Sultana Cereal Bar (1/2 HxB)
S - 20g dried pineapple (3.5 syns)
L - Homemade butternut squash & coconut soup (2.5 syns), mixed salad of cucumber, lettuce & celery (SF), balsamic vinegar (F), 3 x Aldi crisp breads (HxB), 1 x laughing cow light cheese triangle (1.5 syns)
T - Asda Butchers Choice Thin Frying Steak (F), butternut squash chips (SF), Carrots (SF) roasted in 2tsp honey (2syns), mushroom (SF) & red pepper (SF)
S - 2 x Aldi crisp breads (1/2 HxB) & 30g cheddar (HxA)

Sounds like a great day!! I too am doing mostly 'red' days this week. I like the flexibility of the 2 Healthy extras and cutting back on the carbs. I too had butternut squash chips last night - they were lush!!
Having a cottage pie tonight made with carrot and swede mash - who needs potatoes eh?
Hope you have a great week.
