Saturday, 21-05-22

 Good morning!
Yesterday was a maintain which I'm OK with after last Friday's Chinese takeaway scoff-in.  Holiday week has now started and Back to Basics is the name of the game.

I can do it.

Yesterday's meals

I had intended to have boiled egg and toast but, at the SW meeting, Jen gave me a taster sample of the new Hi Fi bars that are coming out next week (a perk of being on the social team) and, obviously, I had to sample them.
Two is a healthy extra B and I had an apple and an orange to make it a more full breakfast.

This is the leftover chicken pasta bake with a salad and a drizzle of salad cream.  It was so nice and very filling - no room for afters.

I didn't take my camera with me to the cream tea but the scones were big and I only had room for one scone with some jam and cream (no butter) plus a black coffee.  So that was OK, especially as it was a main meal substitute.  The syns may be shocking but sometimes syns don't tell the whole story and I am sure the calories are fine.

Today's plans

B:  a cooked breakfast
Bacon, egg, fried bread (might make it a bacon and egg sandwich, in fact), mushrooms and tomatoes.
I'll have this as late as possible so that it tides me over until the evening meal as I will be travelling over lunch time.
SW:  one healthy extra B

L:  fresh fruit
. . . if needed - and it probably will be at some point.
SW:  speed and free

D:  steak, cheesy chips and, probably, salad
Because I really, really fancy it!  I might make a mushroom sauce too with some lighter crème fraiche.
SW:  one to two healthy extra As and three syns for two tbsp lighter crème fraiche plus half a syn for yogurt

Exercise: a nice walk along the beach

one to two healthy extra As
one healthy extra B
three and a half syns


  1. Well done maintaining. You CAN do this! Off to collect husband from hospital this afternoon. I'm nervous as his surgery was major and he now has to eat miniscule amounts several times a day. Should keep me on the straight and narrow. Feel so sorry for him - he's only in his 50's (just!) but at least he's alive and in good spirits. Have a great break away. x

    1. It will be nice to have him home, won't it? You can do it too . . . (((hugs))) xx
