    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 is an extra easy day:

    Breakfast: Fat Free Yogurt + fruit (Apple + Banana)

    Lunch: King prawn + veg (stir fry) + noodles (all cooked with fry light) + soy sauce & chinese spices

    Snack: Fruit + 2 slices on Nimble + 4 Laughing cow light

    Dinner: Homemade soup (left over from last night) + fruit

    Drinks: Water and black coffee

    Extra easy is quite new to me so I would appreciate any comments on this so I can make sure I am doing it correctly. Thank you!!

    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. :)

    Juju79.

    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.
