The After Weekend Post

Hi guys,

I think I’m beginning to get the hang of this SW thing. The last couple of days have been much easier. Plus, I feel a tiny bit skinnier – my ring fits less snug than it used to 🙂

Food Log for Sunday
B/L – onion & cheese (HEA) omelette with 200g tin of spaghetti & sausage (2.5) and 1 orange
D – Salmon marinated in soy, fish sauce, sweetener, 1 tbsp chilli sauce (2), rice, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli
Snacks – Propercorn Fiery Worcester & Sundried Tomato (4.5), frozen grapes, muller light cappuccino
Syns – 9

Food Log for Monday
B – 3 poached eggs on wholemeal toast (HEB) with mushrooms and tomatoes (at F&B’s so 5 syns for oil)
L – SW mini quiche with carrot fries & some SW chilli con carne with rice
D – had dinner at a Thai restaurant so went with spicy rice noodles in tom yum soup (10?)
Snacks – SW mini quiche
Syns – about 15

Food Log Plan for Tuesday
B – onion & cheese omelette with mushrooms and beans
L – SW chili con carne with rice
D – Asda reduced fat sausages (4.5), mash (4) and veggies
Snacks – SW mini quiche, nectarine x2, orange, cherry tomatoes
Syns – 8.5

I’m actually looking forward to weigh in now. On Friday I was freaking out that I wasn’t getting the hang of it & that I’d be gaining on the first week but I’m feeling quite optimistic. Another plus is that my skin has cleared up quite a bit which I’m super happy about. Couldn’t of come at a better time as it is mine & OH’s five year anniversary this weekend as well as a friend’s wedding. It’s amazing how a few days can totally change your attitude.

Until next time.. x

The Start Over

Hey guys,

Sorry I seemed to fall off the wagon with everything. I say seemed – I did. I unfortunately tore a muscle in my foot which lay me off for a few weeks on Doctor’s orders. 

However, I have hoisted myself back up on the weight loss wagon. On Wednesday I rejoined Slimming World and yesterday I managed my first bike ride to work in around six months. I thoroughly forgot how much I hate to sweat. I have eczema so on a bad day, my face stings so bad  😦

So food log for yesterday (day 3 of SW):

B – eggs, mushrooms, bacon (2), beans, watermelon

L – macaroni, Dairylea light (half HEA), carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, Asda 40% less fat cumberland sausages (3)

D – breaded haddock (HEB), milk (half HEA – to bread the haddock), SW chips, beans, courgette, carrots

Snacks – Muller light cappuccino, apple, more watermelon, rice & soy, nectarine

Syns – bacon (2), sausage (3), 2 crisps (1), 2 M&Ms (1)

I think it was an OK day today. I think I have to be more prepared with snacks as at the moment I’m stuffing my face with fruit & I don’t think all the sugar is going to help all that much. Then again, in this heat, cold fruit is absolute heaven & stops me from making nutella shakes to cool off instead. 

I am really nervous about my first weigh in. I’ve been trying to food optimise as much as possible but I think I went a bit over on my first couple of days. As soon as I try and focus myself on a diet, it just highlights how many times throughout the day I want to just stuff my face. Yeah.. need to get a handle on that. 

Anyhow I shall try and update relatively frequently. Not really got any plans for tomorrow but maybe I’ll go for a walk during the day after tidying the house. 

Until next time.. x
