New start, new diary x

I've binned my old Target diary, this is a new one for the new me trying to get back to a new target weight.

1 stone 2.5lb to go. Seems a long way but I'm sure it's achievable, I just need to change my mindset.

So after indulging on pizza last night (don't know why....) I'm starting anew.

Wednesday 1st September RED

Early breakfast - banana then some carrot sticks

Late breakfast - 3 bacon, 2 eggs, 4 grilled tomatoes and mixed salad leaves

Lunch 3 sweet onion ryvita (B) topped with ham and tomato. Nectarine and apple.

Dinner Beef Stifado with extra carrot in, served with cauli and french beans (1 syn)

A choice is milk for coffee.

For supper I had a Hi Fi bar (B) and 25g of caramel buttons (I won them!! EEK!) 6 syns.

Total syns for day 9.5

It's from the last mag (not the new one). You marinade the beef overnight in red wine (4 syns for the whole dish) beef stock, cinnamon, bay leaves, herbs, red wine vinegar, orange juice and zest and cloves then cook with celery, carrots, onion, shallots and tinned tomatoes for 2 hours. I cooked it last night to eat this evening as I'm dashing out and it looks and smells divine!
Hiya hun

Sometimes we need to have these binges in order to realise what we're doing, so don't dwell on the pizza! Very well done for getting back into it and good luck on getting to your new target. As I said earlier- you can do this! You know you can!!!
