Yeah lol, but I'd run out of toe of frog to go with it so it'll be green all the way today. Can't wait to get the cauldron on the go when I get home. I'm so ready for my tea :drool:

No idea as yet, dreading trying to think of something meaty that I can fancy.
All hints welcome :)

Had the most horrendous Sunday ever and haven't been able to post as my laptop was stolen. Stuck to SW though so not too worried about the lack of diaries - lost 2.5lb at WI yesterday.
I have no appetite at the moment so the next couple of days may seem a bit lacking.

Today is an I don't know day - probably green, will decide in a while.

Breakfast
2 x satsumas
Can of diet pepsi

Just retrieved my food diary from page 3 (tut tut), thought it best to start recording if I'm trying EE and all that jazz.

So today is..... not EE lol but Success Express! But it's the first time I've tried it so still worth keeping track.

Breakfast
57g of wholemeal bread (1.5 slices of medium) HEb
Brown Sauce - tbsp (1 syn)
Bacon two pieces - removed rind so ended up with 2 circles lol = 1/3
Grapes = 2/3

Morning Snack
Dark Highlights (1.5 syns)

Lunch
Salad of shredded beetroot, carrot, lettuce and peppers 2/3
Sammy's CousCous 1/3
28g Cheddar HEa

Afternoon Snack
Kiwi Fruit

Dinner
Smash 1/3 with Carrot and Swede with 3 x Dairylea Light HEa and 3 x Quorn Bramley Apple Bangers 2/3
10g of Gravy (2.5 syns)

Drinks
Diet Pepsi, Water, Black Coffee, Sugar Free Vimto Squash

Exercise
Day - 1.5 miles at lunch
Evening - 10 minutes on rebounder then 30 minutes of ministry dvd

Still got one HEb to go so will have a hifi with an xlight horlicks for supper watching BB :)

If anyone's good with Success Express can you let me know if this looks ok? I've done Mix2Max before, from what I gather this should be similar but focus on superfree (?)
Would appreciate any help x

Yep, you're doing it right.

It is similar to Mix 2 Match, in that you don't have to worry about whether you're on a red day or a green day: but the important part of it is that you literally measure your plate into 1/3 and the rest. The 1/3 should be food that is free on red or green and the rest should be superfree food.

I found eggs really useful on Success Express. They're superfree and go with loads of different things!

Good luck,
Ste

I wish I liked quorn. I don't think I'd have the confidence to use all my syns up every day,it's obviously working for you tho. Congrats on the exercise!

I definitely don't use all my syns on any day - as you can see from my diaries. Average for me is 6 syns a day, normally between 5 and 8 although can be as low as 2.5. I would never have 15 syns a day as I don't think I would lose at all.
The most I've ever had was NYE and I had 5 bottles of bud for 30 syns then had no syns for the rest of the week to compensate.
Quorn is the best, especially the bramley apple sausages. :)
