Thought it was about time that I wrote a food diary on here to get me back on the straight and narrow! I write everything down in my own little book but thought it would be useful to post it here too! I've been losing, gaining and staying the same for the last few weeks (since Valentine's Weekend actually!) and I really want to be at target for my 30th and holiday to Italy in September! I weigh in on a Thursday night.

I normally do RED days with the occasional GREEN thrown in which seems to suit me just fine! It's just weekends that seem to be a problem and I have been known to enjoy the odd glass of wine or two...

OK, so here goes:

Thursday 18th March 2010 - RED

Breakfast - 3 boiled eggs, 4 x Sesame Ryvita (B) and Marmite

Mid-morning - banana and Alpen Light (B), cup of coffee (milk - A)

Lunch - tuna salad (lettuce, cucumber, tomato, beetroot, tuna and carrot) and balsamic vinegar

Mid-afternoon - cup of tea and Alpen Light (B)

Dinner - stuffed chicken breast (pesto and Quark - 3 syns) wrapped in bacon with butternut squash and courgette cubes, a large glass of white wine (13 syns), and a plum.

Thanks all for your lovely comments - I really do feel back in the zone but not sure how this weekend will throw me! I'm off to London to visit my best friend who I don't get to see for months at a time and as it's her birthday too, so there will definitely be a lot of drink involved! I'm going to do a few green days which is unusual for me but as I'm staying with a veggie for the weekend,plus I figure the carbs will help soak up the alcohol, I'm going to try it! I won't be posting my food diaries until Monday, but I will take my trusty notebook and try and write the damage down as I go! xxx

PS. Heather - I did get your PM and replied, hope you got it! Stuffed chicken is delcious and so quick and easy - I normally have it on WI night as can prepare it beforehand and ask OH to pop it oven at 7pm ready for when I get home! Simples! xx

Mmmmm love the sound of your stuffing for the chicken, I usually stuff mine with babybell but yours sounds delish and I've got a jar of red and green pesto in the cupboard waiting for some inspiration :)
Hope you have a fab time in London and your not too hungover ;)

You and me both Ellebear, you and me both!! I'm trying to train him to run a bath for me for when I get home after a double shift in work, but that lovely smell of soapy bubbles still fails to waft down the stairs on entering the house on my last legs!!!X

Hello dear diary I'm back and after a fun-filled weekend of food, drink and dancing I really am back on plan as of..... now! I always knew this weekend was going to be a good one so any gain on Thursday is well deserved but I don't regret a single mouthful (food or drink!)! Oh well, here's to me getting back into the zone and getting some pounds off before a hen do in May! Will start food diary again tomorrow as a) I can't remember all I've had this weekend and b) even if I did it would be shameful to write it down! xx

Bite it, write it - my new moto and with that in mind I need to confess to just devouring a bar of Whole Nut at a whopping 38.5 syns, so much for me going syn free for the next few days to lessen the blow from the weekend!

Here's my line ________________ and I'll go to weigh in tomorrow night, face up to the scales and keep going with the plan! xxx
