By allowance it means your HEa which you had as Cheese so you would have to syn the milk instead since its on Extra Easy. If you don't have cheese you can have your milk as a HEa (250ml semi skimmed cant remember what the other amounts are)

What if you have half the milk and half the cheese, e.g. 3 extra light triangles instead of 6, and half the milk. I've mixed and matched before, but don't know if I was supposed to.

Well done in your diary . . . syns are there to enjoy and if vodka is your thing then enjoy. Having said that I have gone from regular drinking to hardly touching a drop. I stopped drinking for all of Lent. It's amazing how healthy eating and fitness takes over and you no longer need the alcohol. Running now gives me that buzz and I can happily sit in a pub and drink slimline tonic with ice and lemon :)

mmmmmm cheese. I'm not one for milk and only ever used it on cereal. I now have my 30g cereal in my mullerlight with banana, so I can really enjoy my 30g of cheese! God that sounds pathetic! The best thing about being at target is upping the healthy extras . . .

Thanks for that =] To be fair I never have all 6 of the cheese triangles anyway as I'm not big on cheese or milk, so I'm gonna let myself off for that one lol. I might start including my exercise on here too as I've been really good with that too this week =] Not sure I could give up the vodka for the slimline tonic just yet though.
And thanks Ally too =]

That's it. If you're not going to take this diet thing seriously I won't read your diary.

:8855:

Just kidding. I'm having a crap week because:

1. It's school holidays so out of routine
2. The weather is pants so I'm stuck indoors
3. My hand is in plaster so I can't run or go to gym (have you smelled a sweaty plaster?!!)
4. I can't drive so have to rely on hubby to take me places
5. I can't chop or cook properly, so again relying on hubby
6. Can't walk dogs on my own because of hand, , so again relying on hubby
:raincloud:
Reading that back makes them look like poor excuses . . . tomorrow I will do my leg/bum exercises and walk one of the dogs on my own. Onwards and upwards!!

:chores016: :bliss:

"Sweaty Plaster"

Really made me chuckle! =]

I promise I'll be good tomorrow! But what makes it worse is when I finished the bottle I felt a bit tipsy and thought 'Wahey, good night sleep and a lie in (cause the OH can get up with LO) but now I've spent ages on here so feeling fresh again lol. I know what you mean about the weather... Makes me just want to hide indoors =/ Hope your hand gets better soon.

Well done on a great week. . .

My plaster came off this morning which is a huge relief, but it's still bruised and swollen and will take a while to get the movement back. No excuses for me now though - I can sweat as much as I like!! I weighed in at SW tonight and had lost 2lb and got my 3stone award, so my earlier list of excuses was not necessary!

Best wishes for the week ahead and don't forget you're not alone . . .

Have just been reading a thread I follow about drinking water, so whilst it's fresh in my mind: . . . don't forget to drink plenty of water . . .
