Weigh in #5 – 17/06

17 06 2010

Bit miffed really. Stayed the same!!!

I went out yesterday for lunch and had pizza, which was bad, but apart from that I thought I’d been quite good. I’ve also started walking to work from the station, so thats 3.5km and I’ve done that 3 times this week!! So thought it would have had more effect.

But, I am on * week this week, so hopefully it’ll make a difference next week…………..

Red Day

Breakfast – kiwi, peach, raspberries, strawberries, grapes and melon
Lunch - carrot, pepper, cucumber, tomato, radish, celery, and 3 ryvitas (HEB) with 2 extra light laughing cows (HEA)
Dinner – steak with mushrooms and onions, chips (27 syns) and salad.
Snacks – an apple and a muller light yog
Syns – 2 gin and slimline tonics = 5 syns.

I tried the steak idea that Helen suggested, and I think if I hadnt been so tempted by chips then it would have worked wonders!! I think part of me is just like this week is so going to be a gain so what the hell, which I know is a bad attitude and I am trying to overcome it. Just sadly this week it’s winning. Very nervous about tomorrow now!!!

Well dinner was silly again! I was up in the hospital for longer than I thought (nothing serious, a consultation to have my wisdom teeth removed) and just wasnt organised enough again. Hmmmmm. So I’m going to cheer myself up by listing my speed foods!!
- apple
- pear
- nectarine
- kiwi
- strawberries (super speedy!)
- melon (super speedy!)
-  tomatoes

I get easily confused between superfree and speed foods though, too many “s”‘s !!! Going to read into that today to try and get my head around it………

I seem to struggle most when I eat out, which I did twice this weekend. I have for too long treated going out for dinner as an excuse to eat whatever the hell I want (espesh when the parentals are paying) and this is where the large amount of syns comes from. I need to get out of this habit and actually think about what I should be eating, rather than what I want, especially if I’m going out so much. Or maybe just save my pennies and dont go out eating at all !!!!

2 06 2010

Bank holidays are never good – all I do is eat, drink and sleep. This weekend was definitely no exception!! But I’m going to be honest with myself and write down exactly what I ate and the true syn allowance so I can see just how bad it was and where I went wrong. Oh dear!!
