Thursday - Red day

Breakfast - Porridge (HEB) 0% yoghurt + mixed with strawberries and raspberries
Break - 2 alpen light bars (HEB) satsuma
Lunch - 2 rashers bacon, mushrooms, 'fried' egg, let over pork and slice of cheese (HEA)
Dinner - Salad and big yum bowl of beef chilli
Syns today is a slice of homemade birthday cake, as it is my boyfriends birthday. It is covered in strawberries and cream but I will only have a small amount. Hope that my syn allowance will cover it, if not then oh well :)
Friday - Green day

Porridge HEB with 0% yoghurt, and a banana

Lunch - nothing :( had too much to do and no time to eat - did manage to grab an orange and an alpen light which needs to be synned. I think 3.5 syns?

Dinner - Bowl of pasta with HEA of cheese, mushrooms, salad, and some weight watchers creme fraiche - 5.5 syns worth.

Late evening - will have some beans on toast HEB for supper and a glass of HEA milk yum yum, as we are off out tonight and I know I will be hungry when I get home!

My taste for all things naughty is slowly fading! I think it might have something to do with the fact I have stopped drinking pepsi max. When I drink this I tend to crave bad things. Have stuck to squash and water only and it seems to be working!
Saturday - red day

We have been out for the day and have kinda done ok I think.....

Breakfast - Porridge HEB, strawberries and 0% yoghurt

On the journey there - a bag of wotsits 5.5 syns.

Lunch - Salad, with 2 chopped up boiled eggs, ham, mushrooms, onion, peppers, grapes, cucumber, lettuce, and HEA of cheese. Topped with 2 syns of light salad cream. HEB 57g wholemeal roll, and a banana.

The way home is a bit meh, but tbh I resisted what I would have normally had so it isn't THAT bad. We stopped at the evil Mcd's!!! I had 2 chicken nuggets, and a caramel sundae. The ice cream I think is 16 syns :( and I am not sure about the nuggets. However, it hardly matters much seeing as I have gone slightly over today anyway. I will make up for it tomorrow with abit of luck and if it had been this time last month I would have had the works, so I tbh I am very pleased with myself!!

I might have some more salad for supper if I am hungry and there is some more ham in the fridge so I might pick at that later.

Breakfast - slice HEB wm toast, 3 rashers bacon(no fat) 'fried' egg, and mushrooms.

Syns today - Cornetto 9.5 syns tea cake 5.5 syns - total 15.

Hi there. Just having a read through your diary. Do you plan your meals in advance, or do you have adhoc days? There are some days where you have hardly anything at all and thats when you go over on your syns by eating the things that are really high in syns. You also seem to be "guesstimating" a lot, which really isnt good as you could end up going over your syns for the day.
Try bulking your food out. Have a look at the other food diaries on here Hun to get some ideas. I have one here as well. I usually plan my meals for the next day in advance as Im at work during the day and just have access to a microwave and a kettle. I can still have my cooked breakfasts and lunches, I just have to prepare them the night before.

Well done on your loss this week.

Hi, I do tend to plan out my meals in my head for the following day, although I do change them depending if I don't fancy what I had planned. I think the times I went over the last couple of weeks was when we went out for the day (long journey) and also when I really fancied something naughty. I sometimes have to guestimate as I do not go to club (can't afford it) so have to make do with my books that I do have. I guess when it seems like I have just had a salad, my salads are HUGE. Could be a meal on their own! lol. I also do not tend to snack so much as I am never at home in the day to snack, so I do tend to stick to 3 meals a day and something naughty in the evening. I tend to get picky picky in the evening, that is my downfall time.
Thanks for the advice, you have done so well with your loss!

Hi, Yeah I basically just had mixed a pot of quark with an egg, lots of spinach, and some chopped mushrooms (dry fried firsat to take out the water from them) a few herbs and lots of pepper to taste. I then stuffed the mixture into canalloni tubes and placed in an oven dish. Chucked over a tin or two of tomatoes to cover, depending on how many I make. Then sprinkle a H ealthy extra of cheese on top and cook for about 20 minutes until the tubes are cooked. I sometimes chuck on some basil or oregano on top. It is quite nice served with sw chippies! I am sure there are lots of tweaks you can do to make it nicer tho! I think there is a recipe for something similar in one of the recent magazines but I am not 100% sure.
