MrsBurgundy's diet, dramas and diary entries!!


Silver Member
I've been having a little read of other people's diaries and realised that they were both motivational and inspirational, and that in seeing what other people eat a day, i was focusing more on what i was eating!

So, thought i'd add my musings and food consumption to the list as well, in an effort to stay on the straight and narrow!!

I've started fresh today, after a hugely synful last night, but every day counts, and it's weigh in day today so will be a good motivator and incentive!!!

Day 1: (And starting over, so week 1!!) on EE

Breakfast: 28g cranberry wheats (B), Skimmed milk (Part A)

Snack: Fruit pot (Melon, grapes, kiwi, pineapple and mango)

Lunch: Eat smart chicken, garlic & wine flavour pasta & sauce (0.5) and Mullerlight Vanilla Yogurt Sprinkled with Dark Chocolate (Freeeeee!! Didn't realise!!)

Snack: Pret a Manger chocolate crackle popcorn (11)

Dinner: Chicken pieces, pepper and mushrooms mixed with rice and sweetcorn!!

Liquids: Coffee (Also part a for drop of skimmed milk), Diet pop

Syns: 11.5

So far, i already feel like i'm keeping track of everything!! Fabulous!!!!

Good luck to all - we can do this!!! I will get to target, if it's the last thing i do!!

I have several reasons for wanting to lose weight of which i shall share, for what it's worth!!!
As daft as it sounds my motivation is a wedding that i dreamt of!!! :love047:

In my dream i was the blushing bride, with my OH as the groom waiting for me, and I was this ridiculously happy, lithe, slim, beautiful bride and my OH put his arms around me and gave me one of those movie kisses where they swing you round so you're being held below them (iykwim?!) And then it switched to the first dance, and Michael Buble was singing "Hold On" and everyone was beaming with happiness!! Vivid dream, huh?! :D :D ;) :p
Sounds crazy, i know, but i swear i'm not loopy. It was the motivation i needed to get off the sofa and do something!!

Added to that, i wanted to be able to chase my little boy round the park without collapsing in a wheezing mess on the floor!! Now he's learnt what the word "fat" means, i'm trying to avoid is (innocent) insults. :cry:

Plus, i can't wait for the day i can wear a summer dress without worrying about my thighs chaffing!!!! :eek:

My OH is incredibly supportive (even if he's the reason for my once-a-week indulgences!) but has promised that he will sit for a photoshoot (which he hates!!) once i reach my target of 9 stone!!! So, as if i needed more incentive, i have it!!

Anyway, this is a lot longer than i intended, so shall go sort out my lunch!!!

Ciao for now!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Mrs Burgandy
I really enjoyed reading your post. I think it really helps to note down all of your food because it keeps you on track. I like the sound of that chicken garlic and wine combo! Best of luck x

Thanks mrs may blossom!! The chicken, garlic and wine pasta was lovely!! Will be stocking up on them, felt far more indulgent than just half a syn!!!

Just got back from WI and as predicted had a gain of 2.5lb so am back to original start weight!!!

Onwards and downwards from here though, seeing it as a new start!!!

Got back from weigh in not too long ago, and have gained 2.5lb (which was expected) I am now right back at the weight i started, and so have decided to start again afresh!!!!
This is my second chance, and having both this diary, a fab forum, and a better understanding of SW i'll be losing before i know it!!! :)

I had dinner when i got back from WI, and it was nicer than i thought it would be, very filling, and had so much that i'll be taking some for lunch tomorrow!! Wahey!! Also, going to buy some ingredients tomorrow to attempt some cakes and sweet treats, though i'm not much of a cook if i'm honest!!
Still, it's worth a shot!!!

Looking forward to Zumba tomorrow!! Having all these bank holiday has really made a difference! But my power walk today made me feel a little better!! Also going to try to walk more. I calculated that the distance to my OH's house is 6.8 miles - so i might attempt that on Saturday before going for a swim - although in all honesty, it may just kill me!! Hahaha!!

Have also joined another thread for those doing the Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred DVD, so ordered mine from Amazon and looking forward to trying that!!!

Feeling a lot more positive than i was before, and looking forward to getting rid of this bulge!!!

I'm off to plan my week!!

Night all! Love and hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

YAY - you sound so positive and have loads a great incentives!

The wedding - I know you dreamt about a wonderful wedding are you going to be getting married soon as well?

Good luck with your journey!
Thanks Zeke!!

Lol - unfortunately, no! No wedding plans just yet - still waiting for a ring! But it has been discussed!! We're saving for a house at the moment, and i'm meant to be going to uni ASAP to train as a midwife, and so i don't see a wedding happening for a few years yet! My OH has just finshed his Masters and got a job he likes, so it's a good start! Just waiting for me to get my qualifications!!!

As with everything - it all seems to take time!! xxxxxx

Here's hoping!!! :sigh: :) xxx

Hi Mrs Burgandy
Ive been having honey shreddies for breakfast as 28g count as a HEB (with a ryvita) and they are really nice. I had a look at the 30 day shred forum and am tempted to get it so am really interested to see how you find it. Have a good day x


Silver Member
Thanks for stopping by! Will have to try shreddies, am off to the shops today so will get some then! Is the ryvita essential, cos if it is I've been doing it wrong! What do you have with the ryvita?! Surely eating it dry would be awful!!

Will definitely be updating how I get on with the DVD! Apparently the first 3 days are absolute hell on earth!!! Still, no pain, no gain!!!

Have a great day mrs may (blossom!)
Love and hugs xxx

I had to really think then about what I had! I ended up with a mushroom, garlic, onion and turkey rasher omelette. Just what was in the fridge. I need to put some effort into planning meals again.

I have all bran and a banana for brekkie every morning - I know what you mean about it getting boring after a bit but I am all for ease!

Yes - let us know how the exercise DVD goes!
