Looks ok Hun. How much milk did you have? Did you measure it? You really need to measure and weigh your Healthy Extras to make sure that you're not "guesstimating" and going over on your syns.
My wedding anniversary is the 22nd October too!
Yeah, Mrs V I measured 250ml semi skimmed milk,I always do! I'm a tad pedantic about it, I use a measuring cylinder from my lab. LOL :) Woo- Anniversary buddies!!!

Weigh in is on wednesday night... I hope *fingers crossed* to have lost the gain I had due to Frightfest!

Have you planned everything? What time is your WI? I'm excited for you,keepme updated on your great losses!
86alpzzyj- I love porridge!!! It's an amazing breakfast! I don't actually plan, I just buy a tonne of free and superfree stuff and then go wild in the kitchen. I find that if I plan I get antsy and don't want to eat the "diet food", whereas if it's something randomly created that day from "diet food" I love it! Weird, huh?! You won't need fingers crossed you'll do fab! :D

Woah! Well done Donnajt! I have no idea how I sat through all that, I did have a square butt at the end, oh an square eyes to match, lol! I had a great time though, despite the 15minute breaks in Leicester Square and the nearest semi-ok food being at piccadilly's boots! But i packed a ton of fruit and survived! I am eating lots of berries and pineapple. I ever braved melon today :jelous: So hopefully on wed I'll lose that silly little blip on my almost clean record!
Mustard is synned unless it's mustard powder. You doing EE or red/green? I think protein shakes are quite high in syns... you got the nutritional info? I'll look it up on syns online/calculator.

LOL, I hate liver! No way I'd even try to eat it. I think I;m being brav by eating mushrooms, lol! Your day sounds nice, did you at least enjoy dinner if not lunch?
My husband makes me dinner when it's his turn! :)

Hijack away, lol! SW quiche is awesome, great fun to play with the different "fillings". I enjoy smoked bacon, mushroom and broccoli! :) Breakfast seems to be going well, but today I fell off the wagon to have a fry-up SW style, but sat mornings are not complete without one. LOL.
