That should read 'drinking' pretty much what i fancied - doh!
It must be a day for new starts, first of the month and all that - Ive got a wedding to go to at the end of October and it would be criminal not to wear the dress I paid a blooming fortune for and only wore once.
I can just about fasten the zip but look like a well stuffed sofa in it!!

Day 3 - Friday

Im going camping with some friends in scarborough tomorrow and i know it will be a very boozy affair so ive been saving my syns so far for that - its too unrealistic to say Ill only have the one!!!

It's the last day of my hols today (Im a teacher) and I finish my book whilst soaking up some rays today:)

Extra Easy Day
HEB - skimmed milk for tea/ coffee
Bk - FF Greek yoghurt with banana and blueberries

Lunch - ryvita with cottage cheese and tuna salad

Tea - Think Im going to give that Jamie Oliver fish pie a go tonight!?!?!? Would anyone recommend it?

My other half is vegetarian and although EE is certainly easier I do find that most of the recipes contain meat. I know the magazine has a limited number of veggie options that are not just pasta:(

Have aq good one all

Ok, saturday was a very bad slimming world day - very boozy which shamefully meant I was dying yesterday!! I could not keep anything down until late in the evening and when I finally recovered I ordered had a king prawn chow mein (syns on extra easy????) from the take away. Aggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

So today is a new day and all that. So far Ive had...

HEA: Milk
Bk: Banana with damsons and Yoghurt
Lunch: Big ham salad with 3 slices ww bread (HEB)

Im about to do some quick pasta and tomato sauce for tea then am going to try my new 'New York City Ballet Workout' DVD I ordered online - Im thinking long lean limbs rather than the short stumpy legs I have at the moment!!

mid morning snack - nectarine and an apple

Lunch - tuna pasta leftovers!!!

mid afternoon snack - wafer thin ham

Hope youre all having a good day

Friday 10th September - EE

Full of a blooming cold. Boooooooooo!!!! :jelous:
Im never the kind of person who goes off their grub when they are ill, would I be here if I was? So was feeling very sorry for myself; here goes... this is what I had!

HEA - Milk in tea/ coffee
Bk - HEB Crunchy Bran with Banana

mid morning snack - a nectarine
(There were cakes galore at work as it was 2 of the girls birthdays... I was SOOO tempted but resisted - thought about the darn things sat on the table in the staff room all day though!)

Lunch - Jacket potato with sliced turkey salad, fat free vinagrette and an orange (for the vitamin C!)

then got in from work and crawled on the sofa. My BF called and thought I sounded so rough that he came round with some flowers (good), buttercup syrup (must check the syns) and a King Prawn Chow Mein!!!!!!!!!
In the book is says a chicken chow mein is 7.5syns but would have thought king prawn would be less but will count it as that.

I must also confess that I went into the garage (where I hid all the baddies the kids gave me when we broke up in july) and had 3 hazelnut whirls!!!! at 2.5syns each

So that gave me a points total of 16 for the day - I havnt opened the buttercup syrup yet!
