Tuesday, Day 5,

Not sure what day I'm on yet as I'm going to a friends for tea - she knows I'm trying to be good and I think she's making prawn stir fry so I'll see what it's like before deciding whether to go green and HeB the prawns, go extra easy, or even do Mix2Max (red dinner) and syn any bit's of accompaniments? We'll see. Haven't had any HeB's yet so can still play around with it. May have to syn/HeB some oil too...

S: A few more grapes

L : Tofu loaf (1) with VFF cottage cheese, salad and 1 tbsp ex light mayo (1/2). Cup of tea.

S: Pineapple

D: to follow
Edit: Dinner was prawn stir fry and I've decided to go green and HeB both the oil (as i know she used some) and the prawns. pretty sure i didn't have the full amount of each allocation but better to be safe than sorry.
Also had 2 mini spring rolls (2.5 syns each) fresh egg noodles (2.5 syns) and a glass of wine (6 syns).
Then had a weetabix white choc bar on the way home (3.5) as I had a sweet craving (probably due to the wine!) And a cuppa tea when I got in.


Syns: 18.5 (not too bad reeeeeally - been low on syns all week too)
Lots of water during the day

Exercise: none :( best get to bed now so i can be at the gym first thing!!!

S: Peach. Coffee

D: Going out to an Indian all you can eat buffet with the girls from work. I am intending on using my willpower and being good - I have been assured that there is lots of choice other than just curry - I.e. Salad, grilled lamb chops, chicken tikka, plain rice etc.... and fruit salad for pud. Even so I have been low on syns all week so I'm sure a little won't hurt. Staying away from the naans though!

Edit: So proud of myself for last night.... I proved to myself that going for an 'all you can eat' buffet doesn't actually have to mean eat everything in sight! I came out feeling pleasantly full without feeling stuffed or that I'd blown the diet.
Had lots of salad, chicken tikka, a spicy lamb chop and fruit salad for afters. I've given myself 10 syns to cover it (over-estimated rather than under-estimated) and a HeB to cover any oil used in marinade for the lamb etc.

S: Cup of Tea

Going camping tonight until sunday. I've armed myself with lots of free food. Current plan is to do Mix2Max for 2 days and have fruit for breakfast, Snackpot/mugshot/couscous for lunch and BBQ'd meat and salad for tea. HeA will be milk in coffee. HeB will be Hi-fi bars or nuts. Will try and not have *too* much booze and keep as active as I can....!

Fingers crossed!
