I quite like having Tuna salad every day for work lunch im using tiny ring pull tins of tuna that do me for one serving and a Salad tray from morrisons its no faff at 6:00 when I leave the house and its keeping me on track and it means I can go outside and see daylight!

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

HEx A Milk for tea
Breakfast - 2 egg ommlette with tomato & some baked beans .. but I didnt finish it i wasnt hungry so I stopped eating a rather big step for me

Snacks - Banana, Grapes, Tangerine

Lunch - the usual - Tuna Salad with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, grated carrott

Tea - after WI
will be 2 eat smart chipolatas @ 1syn for both HExB Bread & Beans/spaghetti

8 trebor mints @ 1/2 syn each so 4 syns in total
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
