    Help me decide!!
    It will be out 8 year anniversary next Tuesday and to celebrate we are going in to Edinburgh on Sunday for posh dinner, watch the fireworks and then a couple mojitos and salsa dancing. I can't wait!!

    I'm furiously trying to save up my syns and want to keep on track but at the same time dont want to spoil our romantic weekend away trying to think about syn content of everything I am eating. So how about this for a plan?

    I am going to be super good Sunday morning & lunchtime, have a yummy dinner, couple of glasses of wine but then stick to spirits afterwards. In the morning I can have mushrooms, bacon, poached egg and brown toast, pick a SW friendly lunch and make sure that I have skimmed milk in my Starbucks later. Hopefully that should avoid too much damage?

    Also - my weigh in is on Monday and we're not planning on getting home in time to make it. There is one on Tuesday - should I go for that one or just try to be super good all next week and hope for a loss the week after?

    Soooo excited about going away - got a fab deal for the v posh George Hotel (£67 for the night instead of £190!!) and if we get a room facing the right way we will be able to see the castle from our window!

    Daisyboo that sounds awesome!

    Where's that St George hotel deal from? Me and my BF went to Edinburgh for our first ever weekend away together, it was fab! We went on the open top buses and had a touristy time!

    We also went to a Chinese buffet, which was sooooo naughty but really delicious. We are Chinese buffet fiends :-(

    But did lots and lots of walking, so counted it as Body Magic and threw caution to the wind, so to speak!

    Just have lots of fun, try and make healthy choices, go to your WI so you can assess the damage, and make up for it the week after!

    Have lots and lots of fun too! :) xx

    Have a lovely time, as the others have said enjoy it and you seem to have a plan in mind already which is a huge help, and do go to that weigh in, it really helps to keep you focused.
