    25th September

    today's ramblings and menu

    was looking forward to my porridge breakfast, and I was not dissapointed. After cooking the soaked oats for about 3 minutes in the microwave i drizzled in 1 tab of golden syrup. Yummm!!! even if a bit sweet. Next time I will only use half the amount of syrup.

    breakfast
    banana while waiting for the oats to cook
    28gr porridge oats - hex b
    250ml ss milk - hex a
    1 tab golden syrup - 2 syns

    Lunch
    sweet n sour mug shot
    ham & chopped tomatoes

    dinner
    lean pork chop
    mashed potato
    mushy peas
    carrots
    parsnip
    1 tab apple sauce - 1 syn
    syn free gravy (oxo cube, vegetable water, 2 - 3 tsp instant potato granules to thicken)

    snacks.
    apple
    grapes
    clementines
    nescafe cappucino with 1 lump sugar - 4.5 syns

    total syns 7.5

    I rarely have pudding because i'm a savoury girl at heart, although i do like them. I'm not a big fan of synthetic sugars or fats so will always have sugar and butter rather than the splenda, lf spread options. I do use fry light tho for frying roasting etc.

    I have a huge pan of Tomato and Puy lentil soup slowly simmering away. it is my syn free version of Tesco's Finest puy lentil & tomato soup that has 18 syns per pot. A quick scan of the ingredients showed that it had oil in, so i decided to experiment with the ingredients listed and make my own. The result is quite yummy, even if i do say so myself, really filling too.

    83.3 today - down .9 from Friday (2 pounds in old money).

    I have looked back through my diary this morning to what I was 6 weeks ago and find to my delight that i had not gained 7 pounds at all - the gain was actually 1.8kg which is a smidgin under 4 pounds and now having lost 2 pounds in 5 days, there's only another 2 to go till i'm back to my August 10th weight. So pleased with that.
    I have tried magic porridge today - jury is still out!

    28th September

    Finished work at 4am, was good and resisted having anything after midnight. Got up at 12.30 to have my magic porridge that had been doing it's magic in the fridge overnight. Gave it a few short blasts in the micro to take the chill off it before eating. I can't say that I would rave about it but it was ok. I might try a different flavour muller next time, the coconut one appeals. Today's one was made with vanilla muller light.

    Breakfast
    28gr oats - hex b
    Muller light vanilla flavour.
    banana.

    Mid Afternoon
    thick cut ham
    beetroot

    Dinner
    lamb steak
    potato
    cabbage
    carrots
    parsnip
    syn free gravy
    S/F mint sauce

    Snacks
    mug shot sweet n sour
    muller light vanilla n dark choc
    capuccino with 1 sugar lump - 4.5 syns. x 2

    haven't had hex a today yet
    may have some cheese with an apple later, working till midnight so may need some sustenance

    Well i've been off plan for around 8 weeks and have paid the price. I restart today at 87.6 - what an silly sausage I have been!! All that hard work and now I'm back to where I was in July. My next day off plan will be December 15th when I attend a long planned Christmas 'do'. my food choices have been made so I will just have to plan the early part of my day carefully. then there are 10 days to Christmas.
    I will set myself a target of 4.5kg (10 pounds).

    breakfast
    3 egg omelette
    bacon
    tomato
