Sorry these posts are late! My cough has gone a lot worse so I’ve been nursing a severe headache, chest and abdomen along with my cough 😦 It has also meant that I’m succumbing to snacks here and there which are a bit “syn-ful”.
Midnight snack: 2 x Haribo treat bags (9) (not pictured!)
Snack: boiled egg
Lunch HM lasagne (HEA & 1 syn)
Snack: pear, 2x miniature heroes (5)
Pre-College: 2 slices of 400g wholemeal bread with ham, beetroot, pickled cucumber, tomatoes, cucumber
College: coffee with milk (1 syn) and a bag of 55g skittles (11 syns) – no photo as my friend binned it before I could get a chance to get a snap!
Post-college: leftover roast lamb shank with SW roast potatoes, swede, broccoli, carrots and mint sauce (1 syn)
Total Syns: 28
Breakfast: 2 fried eggs, spinach, mushrooms, Heck chicken burger (1 syn) and spicy spaghetti strands
Lunch: chicken & sweetcorn soup (0.5 syn) with two of the three boiled eggs
Dinner: chicken shish kebab (6 syns for oil) with salad and a pita bread (10 syns)
Total syns: 17.5
So I went along to weigh in on Wednesday. I didn’t manage to each much during the day as I was so busy with work but because of my cough I was drinking so much water (I think I went through 3 or 4 litres) all the way up to weigh in so I think some of that may be water retention! Anyhow, I weighed in at 15 stone 7.5 lbs – 3 lbs off! So close to my first half stone certificate (1/2 lb) so even though I’m in London this weekend, I really really hope that I can get that next week 🙂
Thoughts on this week: Food-wise it’s not been that bad. I seemed to struggle in the couple of days before weigh in and really randomly just craved sweets so bad! I don’t normally have too much of a sweet tooth so it was a bit weird! I think being ill hasn’t made this week as successful as it could have been as I succumbed a few times (though always within my syns) but I’m hoping it’ll clear up soon as I’m sat here feeling like utter rubbish! I think next week may be a struggle with being away from home for three days but I will be doing flexi-syns again this week and hopefully I’ll be able to minimise the damage!
Until next time.. x
