Couteaux - Eating for 2!

#1
I'm back at last and 8wks pregnant.

I've been off the plan for too long and have gained around 10lbs. I'm really starting to feel it now, so determined to keep my weight in check during this pregnancy.

I'm struggling a bit with tiredness and a lack of interest in cooking oh.. and the nausea. But aside from that, things are peachy! ;)

So first day back!

Breakfast: Porridge & 1 orange

Lunch: Baked beans & 2 eggs

Snack: Melon & Strawberries

Dinner: Lamb, veg & potato stew with brocolli

Well, as you can tell from the date - I rather fell off the wagon with SW and those 10lbs gained have turned into 28lbs! Ouch, sounds so much bigger than 2 stone.

Anyway, I am back on track again and enjoying day 2 of healthy eating :)

Monday was EE

Breakfast - Banana 2 x bread (heb) and 2 x eggs

Snack - Nectarine, fig and grapes

Lunch - Cous cous and chickpeas

Snack - apple

Dinner - Cannelloni & salad - added loads of veggies to the meat ragu and included a layer of courgette. Cheese sauce was 1 HEA for cheese and around 15 syns (guestimating upwards!) for little flour & skimmed milk - made 3 servings, so 5 syns per serving.

Total syns - 5
I have decided to give myself 15 syns a day and if I need some cereal or extra milk, I will have room to enjoy them within my allowance.



Tuesday:

Breakfast Banana - 2 x bread (heb) and 2 x eggs

Snack - VLF fromage frais, fresh figs and grapes

Lunch - Leftover cannelloni (5 syns) & salad

Snack - Nectarine, apple

Dinner - Cottage pie with potato & swede mash, brocolli, sweetcorn & roasted courgettes.

Syns - 5 for cannelloni

Not really using my syns at the moment, may increase my HEA/B choices to use some more.

Glad to hear that.

I'm going great guns thanks for asking.

I'm feeling really positive as i'm on a 100% challenge for 11 weeks and i'm surprising myself at how motivated I am about sticking to plan so easily, hope the feeling doesn't disappear to soon for me :D

That sounds brilliant! You can stick to it, sounds like you are really enjoying it too and that helps enormously! You've lost such a fantastic amount already - huge congrats!! The results will be well worth it, let me know how you get on :)

I've had to restart my ticker after regaining the 24lbs I had lost - oh dear. Hoping quite a bit of that proves to be baby (though most seems to have settled on my hips!) ;)

Thursday:

Breakfast -

Snack - Apple, orange

Lunch - Jacket potato & beans 1 slice of cheese (6 syns)

Snack -

Dinner - Chicken noodle soup

Syns 6 - Oaty cereal
