Flutterby's bye bye weight diary - Green days only

#1
Monday 19th April 2010

Hello all

You have all inspired me to start a food diary, I'll try to post daily, work permitting.

A bit of background about me. I am 28, I live on my own in a lovely flat by the sea. I work in a youth work sort of job with young people aged 16-25. I totally adore my job, but it can make following SW difficult as I have to go away every few months for a week at a time to a place that caters so I can't follow it easily then!

I'm a veggie so do green days only. I did SW 2 years ago and lost 2 stones but sadly I've put on a stone and half since then.

I've just joined my local gym and plan to go 3 times per week. I also walk to work (20mins) when work and weather permits it.

So I started back on SW today, here is my food diary:

B - Shreddies (HEB) with 150ml Skimmed Milk, the rest of allowance to be used in coffee (HEA)

L - Salad made with cold pasta, sweetcorn, canellini beans, celery, hard boiled egg and fat free dressing.

D - Homemade syn free celery soup, with wholemeal bread roll (HEB) with margerine (2 syns)

Snacks - chopped apple and pear with 2 x tbsp of LF creme fraiche (3syns), 2 x oranges, cheese (HEA)

I've only had 5 syns so I may have something else later but I'll see.

No problems hun! It's my favourite soup :D

Syn Free Celery Soup

- 225g celery
- 110g potato
- 110g onions
- 2 pints of stock
- sprinkling of dill

Chop celery, onion and potato. Spray pan with fry light and fry all 3 together. When softened add stock and dill. Leave to cook for 25-30mins, then blend til smooth. Serve with a touch of pepper.

You can vary the amounts to suit, this makes 2 big bowl fulls. I tend to make double and keep in fridge or freeze.

Another yummy addition is creme fraiche, but obviously this would need to be synned. I sometimes add a dollop at the end of cooking to make it creamier.

Day 5

This is my most testing day so far.

I was on a course all day which included lunch. I'm doing a 10 day course over 3 months and the last 2 times we have had buffet lunch. So I was proactive and packed a SW friendly lunch ;) but turns out I didn't need it as the lunch was pretty SW friendly this time. And then I went out for dinner with friends!

B - Shreddies (HEA) and 200ml of Skimmed milk (rest for coffee throughout day) (HEB)

L - salad, new potatoes and hard boiled egg

D - Veggie carvery at Toby Carvery. I had new pots, carrots, peas, cabbage, swede, brocolli, 3 x roast spuds (7.5syns). And raspberry sorbet for desert (4syns)

Snacks - 2 x Alpen Light (HEB) - instead of the biccies on the course! oranges x 2

Drinks - coffee, water (I drank at least 2.5l today!), soda water

Total syns = 11.5

So not too bad after all

To set up diary click on http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world-food-diaries/ and then 'New Thread', put your title in and start writing your diary! Just add to it by clicking 'post reply' whenever you want to update.

To set weight etc I think you click on User CP which is in the bright blue bar at top of page.

Ah I'm not that motivated! It was mainly due to the fact that the gym is only open 9-4 on weekends and I was going out at midday so if I didn't go then I wouldn't have gone at all! I'm an early riser so had been awake since 7am, it's very quiet there at 9am and all I had to do was have quick wash, tie hair back and put on gym gear and go.
