    Hi All :flirt2:

    Decided to start this little diary because i have been maintaining for about 5-6 weeks but i have recently been on holiday, although i had very good intentions (took my scales and my little measuring spoons which i didnt even look at) i put 5lbs on :cry: Although much deserved because i ate like little Miss Piggy Curry, Pizza, Chinese, Chippie Fish and Chips... the works haha

    Although i have stuck to plan since Saturday and exercised 3 times i havent seen much results yet so wanted to write it all down so i can monitor so here goes (all comments very welcome :D)

    EXTRA EASY DAY

    Breakfast
    28g Porridge
    Muller Light Yougurt (Magic Porridge)
    Grapes

    Early morning snack
    Bowl of chopped strawberries and Grapes
    Half vanilla muller light yogurt
    Apple

    Dinner
    Bowl of Superspeed Spicy Tomato Soup (Tomatos, onion, carrot, fresh garlic, stock cube, passata, herbs etc)
    Apple

    Tea
    SW Syn Free Chilli loaded with SF foods (Onion, mushrooms, peppers) May attempt to have more veg on the side. HEA allowance of cheese on top
    Boiled Rice 1/3 of the plate
    Chopped Strawberries and half of Vanilla muller light yogurt

    Syn
    Have been told to attempt to have syn allowance i usually have 10 so i will cut it back to 5 so will proberbly have 2 oreo biscuits (5 syns)

    Hope this is ok :sigh:

    As you are now a couple of pounds above top target you just need to go back to basics to lose those few pounds so don't think it's really a good idea to cut back on your syns too much.

    Hi Denise

    Thanks for your comment. So what do u think just one HEB and one HEA (I was having two to keep me at target) and load up on SF foods? I was having 10 syns a day but was going to drop it to 5 syns is that not advisable?

    Thanks xx

    Ok so I have have had above my breakfast/dinner and just about to start cooking my rice/veg to go with my chilli (I made that yesterday) will also have strawberries as above but already had my other half of yogurt at work as my belly was literally rumbling...haven't felt that in a loooooong time haha ;-)

    Not going to have the two Oreos as I had a Alpen light chocolate fudge bar (3syns) so toying between sticking with 5 syns or just have 10syns? What do u think??

    Also I want to make a note of my exercise so biked (fast pedal) to the incinerator and back on the canal... I think it's a mile there and a mile back and took me half an hour. ;-) yey getting faster but boy do my legs feel like jelly so hot bath(am in it at the moment haha) then tea time yum super hungry again xx

    Going to a wedding today so staying on plan is going to be difficult. I have decided to drive as it's quite a drive from outhouse so that's one battle won. I am having a full English for brunch (bacon, beans, toms, chesse from HEA, "fried" eggs and two wholemeal bread HEB) so that should keep me full.

    Likely going to have soup, a roast and dessert at the wedding so will have the soup and no roll, then have the roast cut off the fat and stock up on veggies and avoid roasties... Depending what the dessert is I might not be able to resist but I am just going to write off dessert and not think about that as it's my treat. Then I i will take some fruit snacks with me for afternoon/evening snacks. Not sure how to tackle the evening buffet thou eek haha
