Sun – Wed Round Up PLUS Weigh In Wednesday!

Hi guys,

Hope you’re all well. It’s been a crazy few days at home and I woke up this morning with the realisation that I have an exam in two weeks – gulp! Sorry my food posts haven’t been as frequent and grouped up. I’m just finding the odd half an hour here and there to update 🙂 This is a really long post as I only have a few minutes to get this together before college so I suggest getting a cup of tea to drink as you read!

Total syns: (far too many!) 31?

Weigh In Wednesday & Early Christmas Present off OH

So before the meal with my OH and friends, I popped to weigh in. My consultant was so poorly bless her and she still made it but as she lost her voice, I don’t think I missed much! As it was only 4 days since my previous weigh in, I was a bit nervous that I would just maintain or have a teeny tiny half lb off. I was really happy as I weighed in at 15 stone 5.5lbs and lost a lb which makes 5lbs in 4 weeks, which isn’t too bad for me. I’m just surprised I’m still losing as usually I would have had a small gain by now or maintained. I picked up my half stone award whilst I was at group and I’m hoping for a 1 or 2 lb loss next week. I really want to try and hit 15 stone by Christmas and although I have about 10 meals out with friends planned I really want to hit it. I would like to start the new year in the 14 stone range BUT I am hosting a Christmas meal for friends which I’m letting myself have the day to not worry about food too much, so that might not happen! I’ll have that in the back of my mind though so hopefully it will curb myself not to go crazy. That, or the non stop cooking will make me not hungry!

2014-11-30 19.58.56

As an early Christmas present, my OH took me to Sweatshop on Sunday 🙂 I have really flat feet and walking more than a mile in normal shoes kills my feet and they just can’t cope with insoles. My friend had visited Sweatshop and came back raving about them so when OH was asking what he could get me for Christmas, I really wanted to go. The guy at the shop was super nice. I didn’t run on the treadmill tester as you would usually as the fact I was flat footed and also had wide feet ruled out several brands and types of trainers.

I ended up plumping for these Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 in white/blue/green. They cost a fair bit – £105! – but I have been walking non stop in them since Monday and at the moment I absolutely love them. I’ve not had any foot pain so far which is just amazing. I’m going to walk to work and back on Friday (2.2 miles each way) so that will be the real test. The reason why I wasn’t too fazed about OH spending this on me (which usually I’d object to) was that Sweatshop have a 30 day return policy so you can test your shoes OUTSIDE and still bring them back if they’re not right. You have to have some guidance in buying the shoes (i.e. you can’t pick them up yourself and assume they’ll do and return them) but I think that’s really good. Many trainers I’ve had before have been OK until I stepped outside on normal terrain and then killed my feet 😦

I’ll probably give another little update the more I use them, so look out for that.

Apologies for the ultra long post. I’ll sign off for now 🙂

Until next time.. x

Weigh In Saturday

So I weighed in on a Saturday this week. It’s been a mental week and with all my evenings being taken up Saturday morning was the nearest and most convenient. I prefer being weighed in the morning but the morning groups are so busy I never feel inclined to stay 😦 The quieter evening groups are more my thing I think.

But yes, last time I weighed in I was a half lb off my half stone award. Well guess what – I made it! 1 lb off! Finally! I really want to carry on the momentum so I’m going to try and be really good this week and not deviate too much. As I weighed in on Saturday, my next weigh in is Wednesday so I don’t think I’ll lose too much weight between now and then. I would like another lb off though… I just need to make sure I don’t go anywhere with my Mum – she’s a bad influence!

Until next time.. x

Mon/Tues Round Up

Hi guys,

Sorry to leave you in the lurch. It’s been a busy couple of days with my volunteering and college so I’ve been quite shattered. Plus it’s a friend’s birthday tomorrow so after college tonight I was making green tea cupcakes for her as I won’t have time tomorrow 😦

It is weigh in tomorrow. My consultant posted on Facebook that we should try and make the image therapy but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it just as I was thinking of doing a morning weigh in and I need to pick up my prescription before work (I’ve pretty much run out) so I can go see my friend after work. Plus image therapy doesn’t finish until around 10:30 so I’m cutting it a bit fine for work. So I’m still pondering what would be my better option as what she’s going to cover in class will be really helpful.

Also, I was wondering if anyone else had seen the speed/superspeed challenge? Someone posted in our group’s Facebook page about a blog which mentioned eating 8 speed foods (s) and 2 superspeed foods (ss) a day along with the 1/3 superfree each meal. So I’m going to try and see if it will speed up my weight loss a bit (along with keeping those Haribo treat bags out of reach!)

Monday

2014-11-24 13.37.12    2014-11-24 14.19.18

Breakfast: 3 turkey sausages with baked beans (ss) with strawberries (ss) and a clementine (s)

2014-11-24 15.57.14

Lunch: Leftover cottage pie

2014-11-24 16.26.49  2014-11-24 18.17.06

Snack: Ham salad sandwich on 400g wholemeal bread (HEB) with pickled cucumber (s), cucumber (s), tomato (s) and a tbsp reduced fat salad cream (1 syn) with a banana

2014-11-24 22.03.15

Dinner: a 3 egg omelet with spinach (s), mushrooms (s), 30g cheese (HEA) and turkey sausage with roast new potatoes and roast carrots (s) and Haribo treat bag (4.5 syns)

Total syns: 5.5 syns

Tuesday

2014-11-25 11.22.26  2014-11-25 12.31.02

Breakfast: Fat free natural yoghurt with passion fruit (s), strawberries (ss) and a clementine (s)

2014-11-25 13.28.49  2014-11-25 13.52.23

Lunch: 1.5 egg omelet with spinach (s), mushrooms (s), 15g cheese (0.5 HEA), baked beans (ss) and roast new potatoes. Pina colada Muller Light (gorgeous!) with strawberries (ss) and a clementine (s)

Snack: jacket potato with tuna (s) and light mayo (5 syns), tomato cup-a-soup (4.5 syns) – not pictured

2014-11-25 22.24.29

Dinner: pork loin chop with roast carrots (s), broccoli (s), green beans (s) and roast new potatoes

2014-11-25 23.37.19

I also dipped my finger (once!) in green tea cupcake batter and lychee buttercream (5 syns)

Total syns: 14.5 syns

It’s been a late one but all up to date now. I’m in a bit of a tizz about my buttercream as it looked a bit split (I think I added too much lychee juice) so it’s currently firming up in the fridge. Hopefully it’ll be looking better in the morning. Failing that, I’m going to try and blend it and smooth it out >.< Another thing is that this is the most unhealthy recipe ever despite it having green tea in! The amount of sugar and butter was enough to give me slight heart palpitations. It does taste good though. Such a bummer.

Until next time.. x

Crazy Crazy Week

Hi guys,

Apologies for the lack of posts. It has been a crazy week what with being in London and this cough (almost!) killing me. I haven’t food optimised much and I didn’t make weigh in this week due to as soon as I was back, I had a lot of social commitments to attend which I couldn’t get out of so I literally haven’t been able to get home before 10pm since I got back from London on Monday. Tonight will be the first “early” night I’d have and I am doing my food shop as I won’t have time for the rest of the week with my volunteering and college. Plus, I really need to get back on the wagon! Flexible syns got thrown out of the window a bit due to London and also lack of planning since I’ve come back.

All the junk and the stress of my cough and not sleeping for more than 4 hours a night whilst in London took its toll and I had the worst breakout on my face. I hardly ever break out so that was when I knew I had to really make sure I was getting at least 7 hours and drinking more water at least as food-wise I’ve not been great at all due to eating out so much.

2014-11-22 11.29.37 2014-11-22 11.32.15 2014-11-22 11.32.54 2014-11-22 11.34.07

I haven’t taken photos of all my food this week so I’m kind of drawing a line under it all and making sure I stock up on some fresh fruit and veg (totally empty at the moment!). Below is my food log of the week which may or may not correspond with the photos above.

Saturday (London 1st day)

Breakfast: Granola with yoghurt and mixed berries with iced water

Lunch: Home made roast tomato tapenade stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon (3 syns) with sweet potato fries and a cup of tea

Dinner: Meal in China Town – if I could guestimate the syns I’d probably say around 20 to be on the safe side

Syns: 21

Remaining: 59

Sunday (London 2nd day)

Breakfast: Full English – scrambled eggs, fried eggs, poached eggs, bacon (cut the fat off), mushrooms, sausages, hash browns (15 syns?)

Lunch: Salad with houmus, quinoa, edamame (didn’t have the salad dressing), grapes

Dinner: half of that massive burger (couldn’t fit it in my mouth!) with fries

Syns: way too many…. 30 – 40? I’m just going to just go with it I think as it doesn’t get better.

Monday (London 3rd day)

Breakfast: double bacon cheeseburger and half large fries

Lunch: a frozen yoghurt with passion fruit seeds and half portion of grilled dumplings and an iced coffee

Dinner: dim sum with a relative in China Town

Tuesday (home)

Breakfast: ham and onion bun with a coconut tart

Lunch: Beans and cheese panini with tomato soup

Dinner: Lean corned beef hash with pickled cabbage and pickled onions

Wednesday

Breakfast: corned beef hash leftovers

Lunch: mushroom and pak choi buns

Dinner: pizza :/ and a slice of chocolate cake as it was a friend’s birthday.

Thursday

Breakfast: beans and cheese panini with tomato soup

Lunch: eggs and bacon with beans

Dinner: turkey stir fry

Friday

Breakfast: mushroom and pak choi buns

Dinner: corned beef hash leftovers

Dinner: Chinese meal with my parents’ colleagues

Saturday

Breakfast: a Christmas wrap with roast chicken, roast carrots and parsnips, stuffing and cranberry sauce (my sister’s a bad influence!)

Lunch: corned beef hash leftovers

Dinner: not sure as of yet. Possibly turkey stir fry leftovers at this rate.

 

I’ll let you know how my meal plan goes for next week. Hopefully I’ll be able to post about my shopping if I’m not in a tizz as soon as I get home and I get a proper plan done this afternoon. I had a massive meat delivery the other day and spent a good hour and a half pulling all the fatty bits off before I put it in the freezer so it’s ready to use so I don’t think there will be too much – just fresh fruit and veg and any store cupboard essentials that need topping up.

Until next time.. x

 

Friday Round Up

Hi guys,

Just a quick one re: meals. I forgot to post yesterday so just doing a quick catch up on the train to London.

IMG_0761.JPG

2014-11-14 19.34.42

Dinner ended up sharing half of this salad box with my sister. I think I ended up eating the tomato pasta, egg, and the carrots, beetroot and cucumber at the bottom of all this pasta and potatoes :/

Total syns: I’m guestimating around 14 as I have no idea what was in the salad box.

Remaining: 80

Thursday Round Up

Hi guys,

Been feeling awful today so had a day to rest up and hopefully help me feel a bit better. Had a really rough night of coughing so had a good lie in until around 12:30-1pm so not eaten as much as I would normally.

I forgot to mention in yesterday’s post that at weigh in yesterday, our consultant got us to focus on speed and superspeed foods. She made a really good point that a lot of us tend to eat salads and now it’s colder we might struggle a bit so she challenged us to get a good loss next week by trying to focus more on speed and super speed foods. I haven’t done a meal plan as such as I’ll be away but I’m going to try and use this to influence my food choices while I’m away.

IMG_0760.JPG

Breakfast was 3 fried eggs, a load of spinach, bit of bacon and some spicy beans. Left about half the beans so will probably finish those tomorrow.

IMG_0751.JPG
Had a bounty as a snack (7 Syns)

IMG_0752.JPG
Had another snack of pear and a Mullerlight.

IMG_0755.JPG
As well as a pack of seafood sticks.

IMG_0758.JPG
Dinner was a 60g wholemeal roll (HEB) with a Heck chicken burger (1 syn) with cucumber, pickled cucumber, tomato. A side of pasta bake with a 30g mix of Red Leicester and mature cheddar (HEA), tomato and spinach. Little pickled salad with pickled onions, pickled cabbage and about 3 syns of olives.

IMG_0759.JPG
Dessert of another Mullerlight.

Total syns: 11
Remaining: 94

Tuesday & Wednesday Round Up AND Weigh In Wednesday

Hi guys,

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”.

Tuesday Meals

Midnight snack: 2 x Haribo treat bags (9) (not pictured!)

2014-11-13 12.49.362014-11-13 12.50.17
Breakfast: bacon x3, 2 fried eggs, spinach, mushrooms, spicy beans

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
Remaining: 24

Wednesday Meals

2014-11-13 12.47.36

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

Remaining: 6.5

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

Monday Round Up

Hi guys,

Today has been absolutely insane. I am so tired. It was my first volunteering session and my throat is now killing from talking so much and helping everyone. I’ve literally come home and not spoken since. I’ve not eaten as much as I initially planned which led to me starving after volunteering and nearly collapsing after my mini food shop. I was going to photograph that but I was so tired and hungry it just got put away as soon as I got in so maybe next time. Right, food log..

2014-11-10 10.07.39

Breakfast: 2 slices of 400g wholemeal toast (HEB) with two fried eggs and a 400g tin of spicy spaghetti hoops.

2014-11-10 14.39.34

Lunch: I had a portion of chicken and sweetcorn soup (0.5 syn) with a muller light and 2 clementines.

 

2014-11-10 16.11.20

IMG_0707

A tablespoon of cough syrup before volunteering (3 syns)

2014-11-10 22.33.29

 

Dinner: homemade lasagne (HEA & 1 syn) with a muller light and a clementine (one was bad!). I also had a pack of ten slices of ham which I forgot to take a photo of as I was starving and it was pitch black in my car after volunteering!

2014-11-10 23.52.05

 

Snack: Couldn’t help myself! Had a treat bag of Haribo super mix (4.5 syns)

Total syns: 9

Remaining: 52.5

 

 

Sunday Round Up

Hi guys,

Feeling a bit better today. Less zombie like though my cough is still pretty bad. I have my first volunteering session tomorrow so I’m really hoping it will have died down a bit by then. Don’t want to infect the whole class before they’ve had time to absorb everything! Anyhow, here’s my food log for today:

2014-11-09 01.26.29

Midnight munchies: so last night I went to sleep really early and woke up at 1am absolutely starving. I found 3 Haribo tangfastic sweets (1.5 syns) on my bedside table so was hoping that would just soothe me until the morning but nope! So ended up going into the cold kitchen to make myself a sandwich with 2 slices of 400g wholemeal bread (HEB) with ham, pickled cucumber, tomatoes and normal cucumber as well as a banana.

Photo on 09-11-2014 at 10.29 #2

Breakfast: 3 egg omelette with spinach, mushrooms and 30g of red leicester (HEA) and a black tea with sweetener. I’ve decided to speed my recovery I’m going to have the cough syrup and so I didn’t want to syn any milk (especially after the Tangfastics fiasco) and it’s pretty high in syns – the cough syrup, not the milk!

IMG_0707.JPG

Only had 1 tbsp of cough medicine (3 Syns)

IMG_0721.JPG

Lunch: a portion of chicken and sweet corn soup (0.5 syn) with a cherry Mullerlight and half a pack of seafood sticks. And 2 flasks of black tea.

IMG_0722.JPG

Dinner: slow roasted lamb shank with a tbsp of mint sauce (0.5 syn) with broccoli, swede, roast potatoes, roast carrots and sprouts

IMG_0723.JPG

Dessert: a treat size bag of Haribo tangfastics (4.5 Syns) and two clementines

Total Syns: 10
Remaining: 61.5

Saturday Round Up

IMG_0701.JPG

Dinner: was in the mood for soup with my throat so I made chicken and sweet corn soup with egg. There’s about six portions and I did use a bit of corn flour (3 Syns) so about half a syn a portion.

Total Syns: 7.5
Remaining: 71.5
