Hi Teresa

Great start for your new diary! Good looking menu, check out the superspeeds :) Shame you're not liking the soup, could you add something to it to make it a little different ? Spice it up ?

All the best for tomorrow :)
The soup is ok just not great and i really love food so try not to eat things that are only ok, does that make sense? I have frozen the leftovers (4 very large portions) and i will eat them but with something i do love like my hea in cheddar with beetroot and pickled onions. I think although I like beans if something is too beany (unless baked beans) I don't live the texture. The super speed soup is super beany, i like it slightly better pureed. Also it is a bit too gas producing if you know what I mean !
Wednesdays Plan (subject to change)

Green Day

Hifi and pear and satsumas (1 HEB)

Egg chips, beans, and mushrooms
apple, satsuma

low fat super noodles sweet thai chilli
42 g reduced fat cheddar (1 heb)

milk in teas (hea)

syns 3 squidgy choc cake mini muffins
2 heb

YEAH still in target range! Well pleased a gain of 1 1/2 pounds but shows my hard work of the last week has undone some of the christmas damage.

Now busy making squidgy choc mini muffins for group tonight the house smells lovely.

Excellent - well done! All the hard work has indeed paid off. Are the squidgy chocolate muffins a SW recipe by any chance ? Hope they turn out great for your class.

Hey Teresa

Menus are looking good, it looks like you're having a good SW week :) Did the mini muffins turn out well ? I've made the squidgy choc cake before and its yummy, but I just wonder if the muffins would sink a fair bit ? When I made the cake, I made it a few more syns as I didnt want to use all the sweetener :) Ever so yummy, either way!
They were lovely but quite tiny just easier to eat in class than a slither of cake.

I am having a good week food wise, really determined to more than anything keep a complete diary. I am not able to exercise at the moment as i have hurt my back so i know my eating %

Wow - you're on Tuesday already! I think I need to start planning the week in advance, its nice to know what you're having isnt it. :)
Gobolino I love meal planning even though I often change my mind :) If i can't get to sleep I often plan the next few days meals instead of counting sheep :)

Also on tuesdays i often eat my lunch at the gym the little one goes to and my choice is always ham salad or jacket and beans so I plan my day around that.

I am experimenting with not weighing myself this week, i normally hope on the scales every day ... sometimes morning and night :-( Most of this time I just see this as info and do not let it effect me but recently I have found it effecting my day so have decided to go cold turkey but I have to say it is making me anxious for weigh in which is just silly and kind of reinforces my idea that i shold give up weighing at home and instead just focus on whether I am on plan and how i am feeling.
See i completely changed today and ended up having an EE day and 17 syns which is very high for me but i think often if i go over 10 i get cross and stop counting lol. So at least I am counting and still within syns for the week.
