I did SW after my first pregnancy and did ok but after the second one, it all went wrong so although I only started on Monday I feel the need to record my food intake & excercise so here it goes:

Breakfast: Fat free yogurt + 1 banana

Lunch: Fish + couscous + oven cooked veg (onion, courgette, peppers)

Snack: 2 slices of Nimble (Hexb) + 4 Laughing cow light (Hexa)

Dinner: Homemade veg soup

I am off to the gym for 1h30 doing cardio........

I am really not good with syns, so for the first few weeks I will only use them if I am out........

Today started quite well.............

Breakfast: Fat free yogurt, strawberries and grapes

Lunch: Jacket potato with baked beans

...........then we were invited to a bbq (in the rain) and it went a little wrong:

Chicken (marinated in honey), colslaw (homemade with light Mayo), potato salade (made with mango, onions, curry powder, light mayo)
In terms of syns.........it was about 2 tbs of Light Mayo + the honey from the marinade but I don't know how many syns that is.

The good thing is I was driving back so stayed clear of the wine.........

Hi libellule33,

I'm new to SW and am doing EE too, your meals look great and I wish I could keep the syns down as low as you :)

Thanks for the notes on the BBQ, I am off to one this weekend and was worrying about what to have. You've given me a couple of ideas on what to bring, thanks. :)

Hi Juju79,

I always worry about bbq's but now i just take my own food with me and share it with my friends............a personal favourite is Chicken breast marinated in spices and fat free yogurt. I then put it on skewers with peppers and onions............its great and totally free.
