    New year and decided to start a new diary, I have no idea how much I've gained yet as I don't weigh until Tuesday but I will be above my target weight.
    It's a tough Jan as we're struggling money wise and have the stupidest amount of treats in the house at the minute. But I'm determined I'm back on track.

    Saturday 5th Jan - Red day

    Breakfast - apple, banana and yogurt
    Lunch - beef onion and cheese toastie (HEB and HEA) with tomatoes and pickled onions on the side.
    Tea - salmon with roast butternut squash and peppers stuffed with onions, tomatoes and mushrooms.
    Snacks - Skimmed milk in drinks (HEA) hifi bar (HEB) gingerbread coffee syrup (2 syns) white choc lion bar (10.5 syns) pear, orange, crab sticks

    Change of plan with the syns as I have some choc philli that needs eating up, so will have that today with some banana and ryvita (6 syns and half a HEB) will use the rest of my HEB on a hifi light and then maybe have some choc orange tiffin 7.5 syns if I feel like I want something else naughty.

    Think I might have the lion bar after my run tomorrow

    No idea what the plan is for tomorrow yet (I hate that) we go to my mums for tea on a Wednesday but she doesn't know what she's doing!!!! I'm guessing it will be EE, sort of hoping she'll do gammon and veg as we don't have that sort of veg in at the minute and we never do gammon ourselves... but my brother always moans at gammon :/

    anyway needed a bit of a rant about not knowing lol, going to hassle her tonight at running to make a decision.

    Will be fruit and yog for breakfast, lunch will depend on if its a green or ee meal for tea.

    Probably not gammon as she doesn't have any in :( but she said she'll get some so we can have it next week

    Only gained 2lbs this week, so 2lbs out of target range, 5.5lbs on over Christmas period completely.. happy with that :) also had a great training session at running, feels great to be back to exercise and slimming world

    Wednesday - 9th Jan - EE

    Breakfast - fruit and yogurt
    Lunch - butternut squash stuffed with tuna and onions, topped with cheese (HEA)
    Tea - curry and rice (haha good job I love my curry...although would be nice to have it with chips one day... but everyone else seems to cook me curry and always do it with rice)
    Snacks - hifi bar (HEB) picnic bar (not sure on syns, think its about 11... will check before eating though) plums, yogurt

    Hi donna - good to hear your WI wasnt as bad as expected.

    Can I ask how you cooked your butternut squash before you stuffed it with tuna? Did you roast it. Im looking for something totally different for meal ideas
  13. donna88

    donna88 Well-Known Member

    Yeah I used the bottom part, chopped in half with the seeds taken out, I was really lazy and stuffed it with tuna and topped with cheese first (I put a blue cheese traingle in the bottom before I put the tuna in as well) I then roasted the whole lot, I think it was just over 20 minutes until it was nice and soft... but would depend on the size of the squash, thinking about it, it would make sense to roast it first, stuff it and then pop it back in just to melt the cheese. It's lovely, I've had it before when I was stuck for a lunch idea on red.

    Thanks, its nice to be back on track and think I'll be loosing next time I get weighed (haha I better loose anyway... although my exercise has greatly increased again compared to Christmas so water retention better not rear its ugly head... I'm drinking at least 5 pints of water a day so fingers crossed it won't)
