Gens food diary

Ok so have decided that due to my imense hatred of image therapy
I am not going to go back to class and I am going to go it alone, to keep me on track I am going to keep a food diary as writing it down will stop me from being naughty, any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Ok so last Thursday after class i guessed i wouldnt end up going back so I weighed myself on the scales in the local chemist on Friday and WI days will now be Friday in the local chemist :)

Will post what i plan to eat at the start of each day and edit if i need to, but i am trying to stick to only eating what I have planned

Red Day

Ooh I was just deciding what to have to for tea tonight and your menu has inspired me to make a big veggie omlette and salad!

Your menus look great to me. Well done for sticking to HEXs when you need a snack...

I'm looking forward to seeing the studenty bean pie on your menu soon - you'll have to let us know what it's like!

Enjoy your weekend away!

Thanks Ste x
You didnt have to wait long to see studenty bean pie on the menu !

im away from Manc in my second home sunny Bournemouth for the weekend so trying to be good but may stray! we eat out a lot when im down here so it can get hard

though I guess my darling other half can eat whatever he has in the house while were at home and he can have what he wants when were are out and about, im still going to put my planned menu for the day in here because then i (fingers crossed) will stick to it!

Quorn sausages cooked on the george formby grill (turned out nice again!) bunged in the bottom of a casserole dish topped with baked beans and cheesey mash potatos using my HexA 42g low fat cheese on the top and 6 laughing cow extra lights stirred through
