Target - SW, healthy eating and running diary
Hi! I've just switched from slimming world. I loved the idea of slimming world but kept cheating...so figured 5:2 would give me more room for manoeuvre.
UPDATE: I'm planning on continuing doing SW (with flexisyns where appropriate) and fast one or two days a week for the benefits fasting brings. I can't be faffed with calorie counting at the moment, I'm just hoping fasting will give me a little more room for manoeuvre!
Today was my first fast. It went fine until the evening, and now I'm hanging on to the bitter end.
Ex: 3 mile run
B - none
L - oat so simple cuppa porridge
T - tomato bean & tuna stew, SW hifi light bar
Total cals: 565

What do you do on slimming world? Red? Green? EE? I still like a lot of stuff about slimming world and I may use it on my non fasting days when I can't be bothered to count. It certainly does make me eat more home cooked / fresh food. The problem I found was that I often wasn't as prepared as I should have been, so I kept falling off the wagon. With CC it's simpler (if not as healthy) to eat on the hoof.

Sun - rest
Good morning I am ultra cheery because I made it through my first fast
It's now 6.30am...I woke up with that slightly tender but nice empty stomach feeling, and a dehydration headache. I thought I was hungry but after a gals of water and two slices of melon I'm full lol! Clearly this fasting thing is weird!
It's weigh in day so I want to go a little carefully. It's time of the month and I didn't do particularly well this week so I'm expecting a sts.
Plan for the day:
B - melon, yoghurt, soya latte (hexa)
L - smoked salmon, ryvita (hexb), salad
T - chicken chow mein (SW style)
Treat: some chocolate with my syns!
So 0.5lb off. Not great but not too shoddy given my lapses this week and totm!
Ex: planned rest day
B - melon, Rachel's low fat raspberry yoghurt (this was amazingly scrummy and well worth 2.5 syns), soya latte (hexa)
S - banana
L - wholemeal bread (hexb), smoked salmon, salad with 1tsp olive oil in dressing (2 syns), cup of tea with milk (1)
S - soya latte (6 syns), Hifi caramel & choc bar (3 syns)
T - SW chips & roasted veg, 2 dry-fried eggs, HP Sauce (1 syn)
Total syns 15.5 (not bad for a weigh in day!)
I am determined to lose 2lb next week...I've only got 1 meal out planned and that's Friday, other than that it's well behaved all the way!
Hi, just popping in to see how your doing, well done on the loss. I have a meal/drinks night out next week too but have another weigh in before then so hoping to get a 2 lb loss. Good luck on your 5:2 diet x
Hi! You're doing so well! Going to be on it like a car bonnet this week....need some losses like yours
B - oat so simple cuppa porridge (not sure about these but as they're 180 cals I'm going to count it as hexb plus 3 syns) until I'm proved otherwise!
L - homemade cannellini bean stew, rf cheese (hexa), Rachel's lf raspberry yoghurt (2.5)
T - SW chicken chow mein - scrummy! And so easy!
Total syns so far: 5.5. Might end there as I'm full but if not I'll have a hifi light bar for 3 syns.
