the tale of charleybabes slow weight loss!!

well ive decided after a pretty ropey weekend foodwise.. ( think crisps, chocolate kebabs and vodka not to forget the chips aswell!!!) :(

that im going to write a food diary so that i can keep on top of what im eating and also so if anyone stumbles across it they can point me in the right direction if im heading off course!!

i tend to do green days mostly with a few red days thrown in at the weekend ..

monday 7th November

lunch - home made soup ( carrot, celery onion, garlic & chicken stock cube )

dinner - mushroom and bacon rissotto (bacon hxb)
28g parmazan cheese for topping (hxa)

drinks so far today 3 pints of nas squash... ( trying to up the water intake aswell.. !)
4 coffees using milk hxa

night time snack - 2 alpen light bars (hxb)

i know there is a lack of fruit in todays plan but we are all out and i dont go shopping until tomorrow so thats why its a bit greenery depleated!

syns for the day = 0
