    The only thing I can think is more superfree with your breakfast and lunch, maybe some fruit with them both. Your diary looks fine to me -but I'm no expert!

    The losses may be smaller than you want but they are losses :)

    Ok, I entered once and have neglected it since, so here goes!:

    Friday 11th February 2011

    Breakfast
    None - I was off on annual leave and had a looong lie in (Bad, I know...)

    Lunch
    Bowl of Super Speed Soup
    3 x Laughing Cow Light triangle (Part of HeA)

    Dinner
    Chili Con Carne made with Quorn, tinned tomatoes, chopped onion, red and green peppers, a red chilli and a green chilli. (Free)

    McCain Rustic Oven Chips, 400g (10 syns) - totally messed up here, was under the impression that these were 1 syn per 100g, but that is the uncooked/raw value! :(

    Total Syns for the day - 10

    Not one of my best days, due to the fact that I had no breakfast and didn't have any HeB at all.

    Tuesday 22nd February 2011

    Awful day today as I was out of the office all day and only got home at 9pm tonight...

    Breakfast
    Nothing

    Lunch
    2 x red peppers
    1 x cucumber
    1 x baked potato with some cheese (HeA)

    Dinner
    Nothing

    Total Syns for the day - I'll just put this as the full 15 because I got the baked potato from a restaurant so goodness knows how they cooked it, but I tried to play it safe by only eating the flesh and throwing the skin out.

    Wednesday 23rd February 2011

    Ok, so back to normality today. Had my weigh in tonight and surprisingly, despite my erratic eating over the last week, I managed to lose 1.5 lbs and get my 1 stone award.

    Breakfast
    2 slices of wm Nimble bread toasted (HeB) spread with 2 x Laughing Cow Light Triangles (3 syns in total)

    Lunch
    Speed Soup

    Dinner
    Chilli Con Carne made with Quorn mince, peppers, onions, grated celery, Cayenne Chili Pepper, Paprika, and tinned tomatoes - served with a little bit of pasta and 42g Low Low cheese sprinkled on top (HeA)

    Snacks
    Birthday cake had been brought into work, it was a sponge cake with cream and jam in the middle and covered with icing. I had a tiny little slice of this, no idea how many syns, so I'll make a generous guess at 10 syns.

    Total Syns for the day: 13

    Thanks Roisin :D Yeah I thought the passata was free, but I happened to look on the back at the ingredients one night and noticed it had olive oil in it - so I double checked for that particular type of passata (it was from asda) and it had syns in it :(

    Bit of a samey food diary today as I had my Chili Con Carne left over so didn't want it getting wasted.

    Thursday 24th February 2011

    Breakfast
    2 x WM nimble bread toasted (HeB) with 3x Light Laughing Cow Triangles (4.5 syns)

    Lunch
    Speed Soup
    Half a cucumber

    Dinner
    Chili Con Carne (from last night) with some pasta and 42g of Low Low Cheese (HeA)

    Snack
    1 x Kinder Bueno Egg (3 Syns)

    Total Syns for the day - 7.5

    I know that I do Extra Easy, but looking at it, today and yesterday were more like Green days, which is a bit confusing, because I then did not have 'enough' healthy extras, so does this mean I have to syn the two slices of wm Nimble bread I had???
