    Hi,

    I spend a lot of time at home in the evenings on my own while the kids are in bed.

    I'm always tempted to start munching ... what tips does anyone have to keep my head out of the fridge? :eek:

    Put your head in the fridge but make sure you have lots of SW friendly things.Celery, red pepper, cucumber, apple ,carrots etc cut into strips and a dip made from fromage frei or quark are good. I add teriyaki or some thing else really tasty to my dip and munch away.

    If you want sweet there are lots of fruit options, dip banana, apple, nectarine strawberries into a *free* yogurt, mix a chocolate option drink with fromage frei and serve with fruit................the opportunities are endless.

    I usually save a hexb for the evenings and have cereal bars and maybe a highlights (2 syns) which seems quite indulgent. Or save your syns for the evenings, you can get a lot for them if you spend them wisely!

    I would say try to get an evening hobby that takes your mind off it.

    Lots of things to do - maybe start a book, do something online (update a blog? play a game), list old clothes on ebay that dont fit anymore :)

    I am the same - come the evening all i want to do is watch tv/films and munch on rubbish foods. I have had to get a lot of free foods (fruit, yoghurts etc) in so if i do get munchy i can have some of them.

    This week - i am doing okay! x

    Try chainmaile.
    You can make your kid an authentic knight outfit ready for halloween.
    All you need is some wire, a rod to wind it round, a pair of wire cutters, and 2 pairs of pliers.

    you know jewellery might be worn by women but making it is quite robust and the basic tools are round nose pliers, wire cutters!
