Good morning!
At SW group, I was relieved to find that I'd lost a fair old chunk of my holiday/post holiday gain which was a relief.  There's still a way to go but I'll get there.
The other nice thing is that I got my Body Magic gold award (as expected) so now I'm on the way to the platinum award which, hopefully, I will have by the New Year.

Today's food plans:
B:  fruit and yogurt
One of many favourites and SW free

L:  chicken, mushroom and sausage risotto
This is the leftovers from what I made for taster evening yesterday.  It only needs re-heating but I think I'll also add some more mushrooms and some peppers for extra oomph and speed plus, maybe, some spice. 
SW:  working out the syns is a bit complicated because the original recipe made so much (it was supposed to be for four) that I immediately took off three single portions for the freezer and there's one portion left.  So more or less six portions altogether.  I'm calling it a quarter of a  healthy extra A for the parmesan and I shall add another seven grams to make it up to half an A plus one syn for the chicken chipolatas.  The rest is all free food.

D:  sausage, egg, beans and chips
I have some left over Heck chicken chipolatas and, when I was thinking what I fancied, this popped into my mind.  I can start the chips off in the actifry and half way through throw in the sausages.  I may or may not do the egg - see how I feel when the time comes.
SW:  one and a half syns for the sausages, three syns for some oil for the actifry and one syn for some brown sauce in the baked beans.

S:  two hi-fi bars for my healthy extra B

BM:  balance ball exercises, a walk, salsacise

I intend to keep well on plan this weekend so fingers crossed (for all of us with that hope)


  1. You are doing so well Joy. You really do keep me focused and motivated

    1. That's a lovely thing to say and really helps to motivate me, thanks so much, Cherie.

  2. Well done Joy. Apple cakes sound nice but I wouldn't be able to stop at just one, or two. Do you think it could be made as one loaf cake? x

    1. Yes, the original; recipe was for one 8" round cake.
