3 Months to my 21st. Lets do it!

Thursday 14th April 2011- EE

Breakfast: Ready Brek Original (30g) with Water (HEB), Tea with S/S Milk (HEA), Plum

Lunch/Dinner (at work): Brown Rice, Spring Onions, Peppers, Red Onion, Fat Free Vinaigrette
Boiled Eggs X 2, New Potatoes with FF Fromage Frais and Chives/Herbs, Fruit Salad, 2 Hartleys 1/2 Syn Jellies. Raw Mangetout/Carrots/Green Beans/Sweetcorn.
Fizzy Water & Black Coffee to Drink

= 1 SYN!

Day 1 of taking Multivitamins to try and calm my Eczema!

Will post on how im doing throughout tomorrow! Plan to lost 2lbs this week :)

So, today is going well, completely on plan!
With the New Potatoes/chives/ff I tried them as in the meeting last night we were discussing green days and using tinned vegetables for ease. I bought some tinned New Potatoes in Asda this morning after doing my weekly power shop (i have never bought them before) boiled them for 6 minutes, let them cool and mixed them with chives/salt & pepper and some paprika.
I took them to work popped them in the fridge- they were awful :( nothing like real potatoes! I suppose it wouldn't be too bad in something like a frittata or within a meal itself but not as potato salad! Oh well everything has to be tried once!!!

I also decided to add some snacks (syn free of course!!!) in the form of pickled onions and capers. Added some olives in for 1.5 Syns (love 'em!) which kept me going along with my raw sweetcorn and mangetout which is definitely a firm favourite!

Asda have £1.00 offers on all across the store so bought a lot of fruit on some good offers to make my fruit salad. Got Strawberries & Raspberries together for £3.00, a punnet of Plums for £1.00, Pineapple Fingers (for my digestion) for £1.00, bag of scrummy apples for £1.00, a punnet of Kiwis for £1.00 and Extra Special Asparagus Tips for £1.00. My Mangetout & Sweetcorn combo cost me £1.50. Also got a red grapefruit for my breakfast one day this week which will be lovely!!
If you're looking to get some B Vitamins into you (or just like greens) then Asda are selling a HUGE bag of leafy greens for 50p so I snapped some of those up along with the normal cucumber, lettuce, celery and herbs.

Another thing we discussed in the meeting yesterday was some of Ainsley Harriotts new grainy meals. Ive just bought some of his spelt and a lentil dahl which look delicious with roasted vegetables and are syn free on green! When I last did Slimming World from November to January I never ever did a green day/extra easy at all! I solely did red because I adore fish. Now im loving this!!!

Just about to start on my wholegrain rice with my spring onions, red onion, pepper and fat free vinaigrette followed by 2 Hartleys 1/2 syn jellies :)

The only real change ive made today is that I put 1 level tbsp of Golden Syrup in my Ready Brek at 2.5 Syns :) I was going to try and have solely fruit with my breakfast- which I did, I had 2 plums. However I have low blood sugar and I find that in the morning a bit of Golden Syrup just kickstarts me!!

When I went to Asda today Mini Babybel Lights were on offer at £1.00 and I ummed and aahed over them. I am a huge cheese lover but haven't eaten any cheese except quark since being on plan. I know that 3 can be had as a HEA but I remember when I did the red choice I used to have 3 and then eat a few more... so therefore I have made the mad decision to avoid cheese unless I am on Holiday. I will put some cheese into meals e.g. parmesan into pasta and grated cheese within meals but no straight cheese! This actually makes me feel good :)

I am going to the Damn Yankee American/Mexican Restaurant with my brother for Lunch tomorrow and I have been thinking long and hard about my choice of food :( I can't really afford a steak (plus I don't want chips!!!) so im going to have fajitas and syn it like out of the back of the food optimising book. Someone suggested not eating the guacamole or soured cream. Im leaving the cheese and I dont like Salsa so just lettuce and chicken it looks like :p I might just have a little of the soured cream but not sure...

Might post a bit more later, but looking upwards I think I may have already posted enough!!!! :S

Just having a sneaky peek in the new SW Mag!
Got a party coming up soon at the meeting for the Royal Wedding so having a look for something to make!
The mini raspberry meringue kisses look good but I might do 1/3rd in red, 1/3rd in blue and leave 1/3rd as they are so make them look very British!! (and for just 1 syn they look great!)

Still on plan and feeling good- feeling a tad bloated so got some pineapple for when I get home to hopefully ease it. Im also going to buy some peppermint and fennel teas as I have been recommended these to stop bloatedness, acid reflux and indigestion :)

I've decided that im going to enjoy myself at lunch- but have found the house chilli which looks nice!!! So may have that :) will update later.

Completely forgot my multivitamin for my eczema yesterday but will take it today when I get home from work! However, Ive been told to avoid apples and eggs for the time being as apparantly these can cause flare ups...

Ok so Today :)
