    So I've decided to start a food diary as well as recording it on paper and on the SW site, hoping that I'll stick to the rules if other people are reading... Here's trying :)

    Saturday 22/05 - Extra Easy

    Breakfast
    - Banana
    - 1 Alpen Light Bar (Healthy Extra B)

    Snack
    - 1 Alpen Light Bar (Healthy Extra B)

    Lunch
    - Pasta with tuna, sweetcorn and tomatoes
    - Cucumber and fine bean salad
    - 1 tsp Philadelphia Light (0.5 syns)

    Snack
    - Grapes

    Dinner
    - Lentil soup with 1 chapatti (3 syns)
    - Cucumber, carrot, cabbage, broccoli, sweetcorn, onion and fine bean salad with a few chunks of boneless chicken

    Snacks

    Not really looking forward to the rest of the day :( Going out in a little while on a kind of big-ish family trip to the park to soak up some sun, I'll be surprised it there isn't any junk food in sight! Then we'll probably be going back to my aunt's house afterwards, which will probably mean chips (it won't go down well if I offer to make them the SW way, there'll be about 10 kids and there's no patience) and various other high-syn foods... :(

    Sunday 23/05 - Extra Easy

    Breakfast
    - Baked beans in tomato sauce
    - 2 slices of toast (Healthy Extra B) with 2 tsp Flora Light (2 syns)

    Snack
    - Banana

    Damn Picnic
    - Sliced white roll (7 syns) with tuna, sweetcorn, and mayonnaise (0.5 syns)
    - 15 Pringles, assorted flavours (7 syns - estimate based on weight... :()
    - Tracker Roasted Nut bar (6.5 syns)
    - Grapes

    Snack
    - 3/4 Nature Valley Granola Bar (3 syns)
    - 2 Asda mini ring doughnuts (5 syns)
    - 350ml skimmed milk (Healthy Extra A)

    Dinner
    - 2 scrambled eggs

    Oh god, I feel terrible...

    Total syns: 2 + 7 + 0.5 + 7 + 6.5 + 3 + 5 = 31 syns

    Oh god, I feel even more terrible... But atleast I've been truthful? I hope tomorrow goes well!

    Oh and we played rounders for a good half hour or so... Not that the ball came my way much, my reputation as a rubbish catcher has remained intact!

    Spent 2 hours slaving over the cooker without snacking and without sitting down... Not very long when I think about it, but at that time, I was knackered! And starving by the time I got to tuck into my lovely lunch, recipe taken from the 7 days to success book in my pack. The meal was requested by my 9 year old brother who sits at the dining table with the book open to that page every day, begging me to make it again!

    - 1 tbsp marmalade (2 syns) and 2 tsp Flora Light (2 syns)

    So, I took some spaghetti and meatballs for OH during his lunch break yesterday and he said he felt really spoiled getting a fresh made meal, lol, insisted on making me lunch today! I had a very light syn-free breakfast this morning, not knowing what he was going to make, although I asked him to please write down what he used :eek: and then came lunch time... He'd forgotten to make it! Sort of messed my day up a little bit :( but now I look back to 6 hours ago and it was all in the minddd :mad: Any-hooooo... :)

    - Jacket potato and cottage cheese with chives - had to go to Spud-U-Like and really wanted to just get beans because they're free, but ended up asking for CC and then wanted to change my mind as soon as she started spooning it on top! I want to believe it was the low fat version, as they advertised it under 'Lite Bites'... Help, someone!!
    - Diet Coke

    Snack
    - Alpen Light Bar (Healthy Extra B)

    Dinner
    - Plain boiled rice with chicken and pepper curry, made in some fat (2 syns)

    Any help would really be appreciated :) xxx

    Oh and weighed myself this morning, home scales showed about 10st4lbs :D they usually tell you you're a bit heavier than you actually are so I think I may be 10st2lbs... Either way, it looked so good to see the needle on the other side of the 10 and a half mark! Hope to keep sticking to the healthy eating even when I'm away (going to see family for 4 days on Saturday, may be a bit of a challenge) so that WI next Thursday will possibly show me reaching 10st.. I'm giddy just thinking about it!

    Kept a diary on my phone while I was away but it's too shameful to share - I kept quite a bit of control over what I ate but then what I was fed was a different issue as I couldn't work out fat content etc... :( I know I did wrong, so started again on Wednesday prepared to make things better :)

    Breakfast
    - 2 slices of toast (Healthy Extra B) with 2 tsp Flora Light (2 syns)
    - Egg

    Lunch
    - Boiled rice with minced meat, potatoes and fine beans stir, made in fat (1 syn)
    - Cucumber, carrot

    Snack
    - Mango
    - Apple

    Dinner
    - SW chips with baked beans in tomato sauce

    Snack
    - Muller Light Yoghurt
    - 48g brioche (8 syns)
    - Cadbury's Highlights (2 syns) made in 350ml skimmed milk (Healthy Extra A)

    Total syns: 2 + 1 + 8 + 2 = 13

    Back on track :)

    And today, lovely weather making me all happy, until now when I can feel the darkness looming almost 3 hours before sunset... Clouds :( Damn the geographical positioning of Manchester!

    Friday 04/06 - Extra Easy

    Breakfast
    - 28g Special K Sustain (Healthy Extra B) topped with dates and banana, with 150ml skimmed milk (Healthy Extra A)

    Snack
    - Muller Light Yoghurt

    Lunch
    - Spaghetti with chicken and sweetcorn in 100g Homepride Roasted Med Veg sauce (3 syns)
    - 1 tbsp mayo light (1 syn)

    Snack
    - 2 Kit Kat fingers (5.5 syns)

    And now it's raining and I have a splitting headache. Add to that the fact that I have been single for TWO HOURS after being in a 2 year, 4 month, 2 week relationship... it's taking a lot of strength not to dive into the chocolate digestives (I'd eat two days syns worth in one go the way I'm feeling right now) and Mr Kipling's exceedingly good cakes (I'd be beyond caring about syns at this point)...

    Why do I feel like I want to stand under a burning hot shower and scrub myself raw red? :'(

    Dinner
    - Rice and chicken stir fry (2 syns)
    - 1 tbsp yoghurt (3 syns)

    Snack
    - Cadbury's Highlights (2 syns) made with some milk (Healthy Extra A) and the rest water

    Total syns: 3 + 1 + 5.5 + 2 + 3 + 2 = 16.5 syns

    And then I found out dates aren't free. What a day.

    Considering having a few Green days... Haven't eaten as much fruit and veg as I usually do in the past week or so, and it would be nice to venture away from the oh-so-easy Extra Easy days... Will probably start from tomorrow, possibly maybe Monday. Someone remind me!

    Saturday 05/06 - Extra Easy

    Breakfast
    - 2 slices of toast (Healthy Extra B) with 1 tbsp Flora Light (3 syns)
    - Baked beans in tomato sauce

    Off to cut up some fresh fruit and veg :) ...or maybe after a few more posts! ;)

    Snack
    - Banana, apple, pear and orange fruit salad

    Lunch
    - Baked beans in tomato sauce
    - Mashed potato with butter (1 syn)

    Snack
    - Muller Light Yoghurt
    - Banana
    - Digestive biscuit (3.5 syns)

    Dinner
    - Chapatti (3 syns) with 1 tbsp yoghurt (3 syns) and minced meat
    - Rice and chicken stir fry (1 syn) - was still feeling peckish but now thinking I should have cut up some salad to munch on instead! Trip to Asda very much needed tomorrow!

    Snack
    - Cadbury's Highlights made with 5g powder (1 syn), 250ml semi skimmed milk (Healthy Extra A) and the rest water

    Total syns: 3 + 1 + 3.5 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 1 = 15.5 syns

    Not happy that I keep going over syns :( I think it's the heat, it makes me forget about including enough fruit and veg in my diet... I was determined to walk to Asda today and buy some veg as all we have is half a cucumber and a few sticks of celery, but got caught up in other things. I guess I got a fair bit of a work out today, washed some clothes and hung them out to dry, tidied away the stacks of freshly washed clothes that had been building up to mountains in baskets for the past month, and did some heavy lifting and rearranging of stuff in my bedroom. Also ironed a few outfits to save myself time over the week (more to look presentable - I don't iron unless it's absolutely necessary! :eek:). Definitely making a trip tomorrow and stocking up for the week; I really want to be in the 9s before July and maybe shaking my routine up by taking some Green days will help. Don't knock it till you've tried it, right?

    Not having the greatest time after the break up :( Who does? Trying to keep my mind busy, I ALWAYS have a tidy up that day or the day after, so today's clear up was as a result of yesterday. Had the worst headache yesterday after it happened, I usually get migraines so headaches are a rare occurrence. It was the fastest, most splitting headache I've ever had, still kind of hanging around today... Making me want to eat those 2 Kit Kat fingers in my bag that I brought over with me to the sofa before I sat down - shame on me - but at the same time, looking back over the syns I've had in the past few days, I really don't think I should. I know I could pull it back over the next few days but I don't feel like I'm losing anything this week, on my period which has been dreadfully strange (I'm usually in excruciating pain, bleed heavily and in clots for upto 4 days, then it lightens up - this time I was two weeks late, have barely felt any pain, haven't even bled enough since Wednesday to fill a single sanitary towel, and this morning I could have sworn it was finished! Bled a teeny bit since then though, so maybe not just yet...) and just generally feeling rotten. The heat doesn't make me feel so great, I get fed up easily and just sat around these days twiddling my thumbs... :sigh:

    Rant over, for now! Not having the chocolate, just gonna carry on watching Season 5 of Gilmore Girls and hope to finish Season 1 of How I Met Your Mother :) xxx
