BlueJo's Countdown

Tuesday 27th Sept - Dinner

Dinner was nice - we had a couple of friends round for a v casual tea, as we were both working, we grabbed a chilli out of the freezer and found some left over roast beef that had been frozen which we thought would do well for bulking out the chilli - only upon defrosting, it turned out to be lamb!! Anyhoo - no-one noticed and it was nice have the contrast of the mince with the chunky meat. We added toms, mushrooms, peppers, onions, chilli, garlic coriander etc - all served with SW wedges, a mahoosive salad and garlic bread - i was v good, i measured my cheese into a separate bowl and abstained from both garlic bread and wine - medal please!! I also abstained from the chocolates that came out afterwards, and had a couple of chocolately alpen lights instead.......Don't get me me wrong, i ate a lot, but it was all SW friendly!

I will say 5 syns for the chilli - not sure if it was extra lean mince - so 5 is erring on the side of caution, but better than underestimating!

Wednesday 28th September

I have forgotten my diary so will have to try and dust off the cobwebs on my brain to try and remember what i had yesterday....

banana before bootcamp (which was dead sweaty - nice!)

breakfast - melon and sw quiche (again!)

s. Apple

Lunch - Bag of stir fried veg from Asda with added soy, chilli and chicken & sweetcorn (cabbage, peppers, beansprouts, onion and carrots). Muller and strawbs

We expected a quiet night, however the MIL came back from holiday one day earlier than she told us, so we had her round for dinner - again, i stayed off the wine and prepped up lunch and brekkie while listening about her travels - she is amazing really, 2 weeks in the West Coast of the States aged 77. My much beloved cooked dinner:

grilled salmon, new pots, steamed fine beans and asparagus - he made a lovely sauce with creme frais, white wine, prawns, shallots and lean bacon - so i will say 5 syns to be on the safe side - what a star.

Once again i managed to boycott the choc (MIL brought some back from hols), and had an alpen light and some baby bell instead (HEa and half HEb)

Total: 5 syns

I have not mentioned what i drink - i have always drunk plenty of water and no added sugar squash - i am into hot water and lemon in the mornings these days and usually have a tin of diet pop in the afternoon if i am feeling peckish as the bubbles fill me up!

Weigh in tonight - fingers crossed!! Happy Thursdays everyone x
GUTTED - WI was put on 0.5lb - have been good all week and abstained from wine and choc and other goodies - the consultant thinks it may be to do with a large loss last week and my body catching up - still am a bit fed up, but will dust myself down and get myself sorted. Had a takeaway after WI last night, but all v good....I think....Diary to follow.
Thursday 29th Sept

banana - then bootcamp.

breakfast - strawberrries and veg quiche

s, banana before spinning

l. Stirfry - cabbage, beansprouts, mushrooms, onions, chilli, carrot, sweetcorn with turkey and soy

WI - :cry: - 0.5lb on

Dinner was a takeaway - but good choices:
Chicken Tikka, boiled rice and salad - i cannot find a syn value for chicken tikka, so i shall say 7 syns to be on the safe side, although there was no grease in it whatsoever.

Total 7

So back to it again today - i do feel a bit fed up as i honestly thought i would lose weight, jeans etc were beginning to feel a bit looser - we are out tomorrow night for dinner and drinks so am now going to study the menu and pray to god there is something SW friendly on the menu! Happy Friday everyone x

d. lamb, tomato and veg curry - (1 syn for curry paste) when i had cut all the fat off the lamb, it more of a veggie curry - the other half complained that he was "starving" as a meal is not a meal without a pile of meat - so he tucked into a massive bowl of cereal while i polished my halo and had a muller with some strawberries instead. :character00238:

Total 2 syns

A good day in all, i really, really hope that i have got a small loss this week. Fingers crossed.
