    Thanks hon x I found out when I got in from work that my little happy dance had woke Mr G up so i looked for the belt in the dark when I could have put the light on lol !

    Wednesday - been to the GP today and my BP is down slighly on last week and the week before, blood sugars etc are all alright so after a bit of negotiation he is giving me a month to see if i can get it down any futher with diet and exercise(its over the upper level for normal but not scarily high)if its dropped any further he said he will give me another month and if its not "normal" by then I will be put on BP meds.

    So with even more determination, vim and vigour here goes todays WI day food diary

    last night at WI i found out I had lost 8lbs! whoooop

    Today Green day
    HExA - Milk for tea

    Brekkie - 2 egg ommlette with tomatoes, handful of grapes

    Snack - apple, banana, tangerine

    Lunch - Tuna Salad (HExB) - same as everyday !:) its nice n easy and I like it

    Snack - Apple

    Tea - could be my downfall but have a whole week to make up if it is

    Pasta bake made with , Wholemeal pasta, Turkey(HExB) plus synning some Turkey on the off chance there is more than 113g in my portion mixed with Leek, Onion and coated in a tin of Batchelors(Campbells) low fat chicken soup (syns I have worked out how many but cant remember), sprinkled with HExA of reduced fat cheddar

    This will be split between 4 of us so its only a 1/4 of the syns for the soup but it means im not 100% on how much turkey & cheese i will be getting so Im not having any treats today will use my syns allowance to be a buffer on the off chance there is more cheese or turkey than allowed on a HEx in my tea, i really enjoy this meal and usually have seconds and a huge bowl but today im going to have a smaller bowl and no seconds so should stay near enough to 15 syns to be safe

    so kin
