Beth's food diary aka mission 'get gorgeous' ;)

It's my fourth day on plan and decided to post my food on here as well as on paper so I can get some advice and things :) so, any help would be appreciated!

Breakfast: 3 rashers of bacon (fat removed) two grilled tomatoes and 2 scrambled eggs (splash of milk as part of hexa (rest in tea and coffee)

Lunch: leftover chilli (extralean beef mince, mixed beans, peppers, onions, tinned toms) with rice and salad.

Dinner: baked chicken breast, broccoli, spinach, new potatoes, bisto gravy (I was generous so 2 syns to be safe)

Snacks: 2x alpen light bars (hexb)
2 x clementines
2 x cold new potatoes

Lots of early gray and sugarfree vimto..
Large glass of red 8.5 syns.

Total: 10.5 syns.

This is definitely the most I've eaten in the past 4 days and the only time I've come close to syns (I had three gin and slimline tonics last night, but aside from that the only suns I've used so far were some for splashes of milk when I used cheese as hexa and for mild cheese and broccoli pasta sauce.. Is this really jar one syn on extra easy for the whooooole packet?!)
This has to be too much?!
Any pointers would be appreciated?

loving your Diary, even though you have syned, you've lost. and you ahve skipped brekkie too sometimes?
well done x
Yeah, breakfast is just a no go for me some days - I'd rather have those twenty minutes in bed and an early lunch.. Plus, I'm pretty picky with fruit (love all vet though!) so it can be quite difficult to have my 1/3 superfree :/ as for syns I was too scared at first, but I'm a student so wine is a way of life.. I stick to 70 a week though as I only want to lose 2 stone and still scared that 15 syns a day will slow me.. Even though the reverse is probably true :/

I feel heavy this week (* week) so we'll see if I've managed a loss.. *fingers crossed*

Thanks for Reading :) felt a bit like I was talking to myself!!
