Carthago delenda est's food diary

Hey guys,

I'm three weeks into SW and not doing well. So, I thought I'd post my food diary on here.

If I remember to every day. Hopefully it'll help :)

Stay below ten syns!
Eat more fruit and vegetables!
Drink more!!!
Substitute syns for a cup of tea or chicken Bovril!

Aiming for 2lb loss!

Tuesday - Green

Breakfast - 28g weetabix minis with dash of milk, Ryvita wholegrain crackerbread, cup of tea, nectarine.

Lunch - WW Fisherman's pie (5 syns)

Dinner - LF Super noodles, bowl of carrots and green beans, tea

Snacks - plums x 4, pear, pink and white x 2 (5 syns), Kellogg's Fibre plus bar (HEXB), corn on the cob, toffee mullerlight

Syns total - 10 syns and 1 HEXA and 2HEXB used.

Overall - Good day, but could be better with more planning. I ran out of cheese, so couldn't have any jacket potatoes, or pasta (I'm really bad like that!!!) I should have drunk a lot more than I did, especially in this heat...

Not that bad a day considering I hardly ate anything until 3pm, having woken up at 8am... which led to me eating more syns than I should have. Oh well...Tomorrow is another day!

I think that I'm getting there with the whole 1/3 superfree thing! Though I could have done with eating a proper lunch! No syns used today! I made cous cous for the first time and it isn't bad. I've only ever had it cold, or from a ready made pack, so I might put it in the fridge and try it tomorrow :)

Much better day today - albeit for the dishwasher deciding to have the last laugh (my mum and I have been talking about getting rid of it for ages, and it decides to flood our kitchen whilst not turned on...) So we couldn't cook for ages until the plumber turned up, but we were very good and we didn't snack on bad things! We then tucked into a lovely dinner and then watched Doctor Who finale! I still need more fruit and veg though! Oh no, late night snacking, or should I say early morning...

Breakfast - squash

Lunch - squash, pasta, extra lean mince, passata, broccoli, green beans, 10g RF cheese

Overall, I'm quite disappointed with myself. I didn't eat well, and was constantly snacking. Instead of reaching for fruit (which is severely lacking in my house today) I opted for chocolate-y things. WI is tomorrow evening. I hope I lose at least 2lbs.

Hi Geordiegirl, I've weighed in and I'm 1.5lbs lighter. Can't say I'm not happy with that, though I have to work extra hard this week if I'm to fulfil the 10 in 4 challenge.

Thanks for the good wishes :)
Rules for this week:
10 syns a day!
Less pasta
Eat more fruit/vegetables
Drink more!
Try new things
Plan, plan and plan!

Aiming for 2.5lbs (but secretly hoping for 3!)

Tuesday - Extra Easy

Lunch - sausage x 2 (1 syn), lean bacon, scrambled egg (made with ss milk), baked beans, squash

Dinner - Chicken breast, SW chips, baked beans, broccoli, carrot, green beans, pear, clementine

Snacks - very small bit of chicken, ginger ale (I love this stuff), box of mikados (8 syns), clementine, squash, tea, Ryvita wholegrain crackerbread x 1 (HEXB), ryvita original crackerbread x 1 (1 syn)

Ok, so the box of mikado was a midnight snack...bad stuff. So I decided to shift it to today's syns to try and make up for it (It was after midnight, so technically it was today.) This will not become a habit of mine. Hopefully :p Overall, not a bad day, fruit and veg remains a problem... 1/3 superfree, 13 superfree...It'll have to be a mantra.
