    Backdating a little...

    Monday 23rd August 2010 GREEN

    Been doing Slimming World Green for 6 days and lost 8lbs, YAY
    Not really been 100% tho, not had all HE’s and as usual spent most of my Syns on vodka!!!

    It’s my second time doing Slimming World, but after following WW the lack of ready meals and unwillingness (though I at the time called it lack of time) to cook, ment I only lasted a short while. I actually like cooking though and feel this time I have a better grip on the plans. Stock cubes are now free too…. Great for a non-veggie quorn lover.

    Gonna track my self a bit better, might even publish it on mini mins for feedback. The first week is always easy for me and big loss no effort, but if gonna do it long term need a decent record, so here goes……..
    Did I mention, start weight, 14st 12 or 208lbs, I did nearly passed out when I saw the scales!!! I was feeling awful, no clothes fitted properly and my energy was zilch, the scales translated beautifully the cause for this.

    Oh and as I have decided to post my diary, the most obvious thing is the severe lack in the brekkie department!! I know I need to sort this, but I have never really managed to eat anything before 11am my whole adult life, even when I up at 7am ish most days. Will keep trying…..

    Sunday 29th August 2010 GREEN

    B

    L Jacket spud, 42g reduced fat cheddar, home-made coleslaw mix-without any dressing (can’t find one I like, so just have a little S+P on it) an LC blue(1.5) and red onion marm (1/2 a syn as I made it with apple) Lush Lunch!
    D Crab linguine, side of stir-fried veg
    Snacks 3 Plums, Fibre + bar
    HEA RF cheddar
    HEB Crab 120g – shame to open another tin for 22g
    HEB Fibre + bar
    Syns 2
    B. Magic Wii fit- Step 2mins, Advanced step 5mins and 10 mins free jog. Tricep curls 20 reps each side

    Syns for the week 69.5/105

    Had a sneaky weigh this morn –4, but the scales did flicker so hoping will be -5 by tommoz!!

    Made a batch of onion marmalade, as I liked the tester I did yesterday muchos. The recipe I found calls for apple vinegar, which A. tesco’s hadn’t got and B. sounds expensive. So I brought a Bramley for 26p, which when I weighed it equalled 5 syns. With a kilo of onions I filled a large mayo jar with enough left for generous portion with lunch.
    Whoop whoop, did some exercise too, at last!!! My Mii got fatter, damn, but my wii fit age dropped a year to 38, not bad at 35 and v. over-weight.
    ….. and thanks Nigella (tv chick) for the crab recipe, which with a bit of pasta liquor to replace the huge amount of olive oil, and tinned crab, was lovely.

    Good start but all got a bit risky!!!!

    Monday 30th August 2010 EE

    WEIGHT 13st 13
    LOSS/GAIN –5 wow as I have eaten loads of real food

    I’m off workie this week, yerrrr! Followed by 2, maybe 3 or 4 weeks on nights Yuk yukky. I’ve dieted and done nights before, think I will be sticking to GREEN for night shift weeks, loads of easy packet stuff and the extra B makes snacking easier. For this week as I have time to faff, so gonna go EE fish week, aiming for a 3-4 lb loss before the vampire shifts!! Also hiding the vodka till the weekend, after last night using 25 syns!! Pub measures so super accurate, but still amazingly 94.5/105 syns for the last week, not much room for error!!

    B Activia and 2 Clementines- Who am I kidding? ate it at 12.30pm lol
    L Salmon linguine, mange tout, onion and corn
    D Salmon and roast veg risotto
    Snacks beef oxo drink
    HEA RF cheese on risotto
    HEB Fibre +
    Syns 0
    B. Magic 20 min walk


    Bit of a difficult day, don’t feel that well, kinda tired and run down, no idea why. And ten mins after the shops shut as it’s bank holiday my craving for a beefburger began to increase, (had it for 4-5 days on and off). But with no where to buy decent meat, had thoughts of getting one delivered and as I hadn’t yet used any syns the temptation grew…… I dug though the freezer, found nothing meaty, only quorn burgers, no way gonna be the same, so I had a beef oxo drink in what I thought was a futile attempt at a meat fix, but it must have worked. A wow on the will-power scale for me and 15 syns in the bank for tommoz, when I will go buy some lean mince and cumin, so if I get tempted again I will make one. No dodgy take-away and syn guessin involved.

    Blew fish week “out of the water” so to speak, along with a most of my saved syns to host impromptu girlie poker nite. I cooked late dinner and Sw friendly snackage for all, and it went down v well, but then there was the voddie!! Thought I was too old to succumb to peer pressure!! All faithfully syned tho and well worth the laughing till crying.

    B. Magic 2x 30 min brisk walking

    Had saved my HEA+B and syns for film nite snackage with my son, at first I was still full from dinner, then whether it was the walking or the “excitement” of Harry Potter 6, I was so too tired to even walk to the kitchen!

    Been struck down with the “the summer cold”, which appears to be armed with razor blades for the throat and a lovely constant sicky feeling. So the rest of my days intake consisted off, paracetamols and fresh lemon in tea or diet tonic water. GGRRRR, praying for overnight recovery.
