Hello! I think this may be the fifth time I've attempted a diary on here...I sometimes find getting too obsessive sends me spiralling off, but I'm doing ok for now and I come on here most days so might as well try my own diary again!

Bit of background...managed to get down to 10 stone 7 during Christmas 2013, but this was through extreme stress and anxiety being in my final year of university. I then piled it all back on right up to 11 stone 11, a bad break up combined with a desk job where I seem to munch away from being tired/bored.

So since Boxing Day I have managed to get down from 11 stone 11 to 11 stone 6. I'm back following SW from home but I might 'join' a group this week just to get the new book. I don't plan on doing the SP plan, I think it sounds horrendous and I'm pretty annoyed that they've got rid of green days. I've gone vegetarian for January as a challenge but tbh, my newfound addiction to Quorn and complete lack of any meat cravings means I may well continue into the rest of the year. So technically I do 'green days' but really I'm doing extra easy as I don't eat the second A/B choice allowed on a green day.

I also started Couch to 5k again recently, I used to be able to run well but let it all go when I moved back home so this will be a food and exercise diary for a healthier, leaner me :) I weigh in on a Thursday usually, I think I'm looking at a gain this week because TOTM and also had a bad couple of days but I'm hoping to maintain, 0.5lb - 1lb off would be fabulous!

Enough rambling anyway, food for the day:

Sunday 11th January - Extra Easy
Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs (1/2 A) on toast (1/2 B) with a pear and coffee [note - I usually split my HeXs, I have 175ml skimmed milk and 15g cheese and this works fine for me!)
Lunch: a big mixed pack of fruit from Asda (4 of your 5 a day and only £1.50!), a greek style toffee Muller light (0.5), 1 chocolate/fudge Alpen light (1/2 B)
Dinner: 2 Quorn fillets with 1 tbsp medium Nando's sauce (0.5), McCain's frozen jacket potato (1), 15g cheese (1/2 A), lots of salad and a whole red pepper
Snack: strawberry Options hot chocolate (2)
Total syns: 4
Exercise: Couch to 5k Week 2 Day 1, I did this twice today in the morning and evening.

I've seen people saying strawberry Options is 2.5 syns but I don't see how as it's not even 40 calories? If anyone knows please let me know, I'll keep counting it as 2 for now :)

Monday 12th January - Green
Breakfast: 1 Alpen light (1/2 B), 1 toffee greek style Muller (0.5), 1 banana, 1 coffee with a dash of skimmed milk (A)
Lunch: salad with 1 green pepper, 2 Quorn fillets, 1 tbsp Nando's sauce (0.5), 1 Alpen light (1/2 B), big pot of melon
Dinner: McCain's frozen jacket (1) spaghetti shapes, 22g cheese (A - going to say this and my coffee is a whole A I think)
Snack: strawberry Options (2) 2 Alpen light bars (Second B) toffee greek style muller (0.5)
Syns: 4.5
Exercise: none! Oops!

I know we're not meant to do green days now but they always worked for me so I'm ignoring that! I know people who have lost 5 stone on green days so I have no idea why they got rid of them :(

Slipped and ordered Pizza Hut. I'm not feeling the diet this week for multiple reasons, I might wait until I've gone to a group on Thursday :(

Well done to you for return and being determined.

Love your diary for the nandos sauce. I have a big bottle of the hot stuff would one tbsp be okay to put as 1syn do you think?

I have managed to climb back on the wagon, was indeed TOTM so that explains yesterday!

Tuesday 13th January
Breakfast: banana, toffee greek style Muller (0.5), coffee (A)
Lunch: sharon fruit, kiwi fruit, pear, 2 Alpen light bars (B), small skinny Costa cappucino (2.5 syns? No chocolate on top)
Dinner: Quorn meatballs in homemade sauce (tomatoes/passata/tomato puree/pepper/onion) with pasta and 25g cheese (A)
Syns: 3, will be 5 if I have a hot choc later
Exercise: Couch to 5km Week 2 Day 2, really pleased as my speed for runs was 4.5 mins per km! So if I built that up to 5km, I would be running 5km in around 22/23 minutes. Hoping to build up to a sub 30 min 5km again and then start going to my local Park Run on a Saturday morning :)

Subscribed!

Another day in the bag, almost exactly the same as yesterday but nevermind...

Breakfast: greek Muller (0.5), coffee (A)
Lunch: small skinny cappucino (2.5), pear, sharonfruit, kiwi fruit, box of blueberries, 2 Alpen light bars (B)
Dinner: pasta, Quorn meatballs in homemade tomato/pepper sauce, 25g cheese (A)
Snack: hot chocolate (2) 10 mini mushroom sweets at 0.5 syns each (5)
Syns: 10
Exercise: none yet but might go for a walk later

Looking at a 3lb gain tomorrow, not surprised as I had 3 bad days this week and I'm still uncertain if I'm TOTM or not (literally no idea what my body is doing atm) so I'm okay with it

Yeah and I am still down since I started again, my body always follows this pattern of going down 4-5lbs then back up by 2 ish, then down again...it's frustrating but as long as the overall trend is a downwards one I don't mind. I don't have THAT much to lose, I'm barely a size 12 as it is so I'm expecting my losses to be slower. Hoping to tone up with the running as well :)

Probably! I try to do three runs a week, two during the week days and one at the weekend to break it up a bit. Changing to tomorrow now as it's so cold :(

Well I finished off the packet of the sweets so 25 syns for the day. I'm happy I didn't binge completely (I do have some salted caramel Haagen Dazs in the freezer...) and if I stick to 5 syns a day for the next 6 days I wouldn't even average 10 a day still :)

Wishing you a speedy recover.
