    Dinner - ! Totally forgot it was a special tasting session at my daughters group! I had nibbles of oatcake, rice cakes, a sandwich (ham and turkey, 1.5 slice from a small wholemeal loaf), loads of fruit, raw veggies and some low syn desserts so i've had to count it as all my syns plus my remaining HExB

    So day two is upon us! I have been to the gym this morning and drunk a load of water (unsurprisingly in this weather!) Just having one Alpen light before i go shopping so i'm not tempted in to anything bad in Tesco!
    Don't think i'm eating enough, it's not that i'm hungry and i'm sticking to the 2/3 to 1/3 split just don't seem to have time to eat what i want! I'll get that right this evening i think!

    Breakfast - Red grapefruit (2/3) ham(1/3)

    Snack - 2 x Alpen light choc and fudge(HExB)

    Lunch - Tomato, 2 large field mushrooms (2/3), topped with 57g Philly light garlic and herb(HExB), and bacon(1/3)

    Snack - Mullerlight Rhubarb

    Dinner - Quorn stir fry made with peppers, red onion, greens, carrot, courgette, and beef quorn pieces (2/3) sweetcorn (1/3) with black pepper, soy sauce, chilli, stock and a dash of tabasco

    Dessert - quark and satumas with 1.5 choc orange options (3 syns)

    So after Saturdays lunch i was feeling a bit ropey and ended up with a bad stomach and didn't eat anything else for Saturday! Yesterday i had dry toast, and a couple of crackers and that was about it! Still not right today but i've started off with a couple of weetabix and milk (measured as per HExA) and we'll see what happens.

    It is funny.... normally it would be sod the diet, but with SW you can just say "I'll try that later and stick to EE", eating lots and sticking to plan... I love SW... good luck with EE, I will be (hopefully) trying this next week when on holidays ( and probably exceeding my syns too lol)

    There's a really helpful article in this months mag about syns on holiday! Basically it says you can either eat what you want and know you'll gain, try and be good but flexible or stick rigidly to it!

    Today i am EE, as it's OH birthday and we're going out tonight.

    Breakfast - total 0%, with strawberries and raspberries
    snack - wafer thin ham slices
    lunch - chicken noodle mugshot, mandarin mullerlight
    Dinner - Malaysian/Singaporian potatoes cakes, prawn toasts, satay
    Crispy beef with vermicelli, beef rendang, lamb curry, sizzling chicken, plain rice
    Caramel ice cream

    Thank the lord for flexi syns :)
