tashas food diary !!!

i am new here. i started slimming world last September, lost a little weight but then maintained weight using it as i would cheat on a weekend. put round half a stone on at Christmas and then have been eating badly ever since then. i have been following slimming world properly again since last Tuesday but as usual it got to the weekend and i ended up eating load of muffins, ice cream everything!! worked out i would have had way over 200 syns! so starting a fresh today. think this website is fantastic!! i am doing this food diary to help me keep on track and hopeful discourage me from weekend 'binging'. i don't actually dare weigh my self today, too scared eeekk! i shall exercise and eat healthy all week then have my weigh in day as Friday. right so here goes....

green day

breakfast: bran flakes (hexb) milk (hexa), banana

dinner: strawberries, banana, pineapple, blackberries, grapes with a miller light yoghurt (0 syns)

tea: home-made shepherds pie - using 85g mince meat (hexb) onions, mushrooms, peas, carrots, sweetcorn. lots of mashed potato using milk left over from hexa. gravy (2 syns)
side helping of veg, brocalli carrots and peas

haven't had super yet! not sure what to have, il have to have something as its night time when i crave, i just hope i don't go off track :0 going to try limit my self to 5 syns daily.

exercise - two work outs from online exercise TV - 40 minutes

not sure how many syns i have had as it seems i have been working out my gravy consumption wrong. i thought it was one syn for every 4 tablespoons, however, i have seen certain threads suggesting different very confused!

discovered everything i was doing wrong with the gravy, it is not counted as 4tbsp of gravy granuals but 4 tbsp of gravy once it is made up which is one syn.

i think i may have had around 10 syns of gravy, the way i did it. way more syns than i wanted... will have 0 syns tomorrow to make up for it! :D
