Good morning!

I'm being such a good SW girl today.  I've located the nearest group to here, in Kessingland and I've been in touch with the group leader.  I will be going to the five thirty group this evening.
It's going to keep me on the straight and narrow today, for sure.
I fully expect a slight gain but that's OK, it won't disappoint me.  My usual weigh ins are in the morning and it does make a difference.  And I'm on holiday.

Yesterday's meals:

Breakfast at Framlingham Castle - it was a very good cup of coffee!

I forgot to snap lunch; it was, as planned, some frittata and salad and I made some coleslaw using three and a half syns-worth of the posh mayo.
Sorry about the poor light - the pasta bake was absolutely delicious.
. . . and so was the fruit, jelly and yogurt.

Today's plans

B:   pancakes, fruit and yogurt
Made the usual way - wholemeal SR flour (which I call my healthy extra B), one egg, some plain yogurt and some skinny syrup to sweeten and flavour.
SW:  one healthy extra B and I will use Greek yogurt for a bit more protein.

L:  fruit and yogurt
Because that is what I fancy!
SW:  half a syn for yogurt

D:   frittata, fried potato, mushrooms and tomatoes; fruit and jelly
The frittata is leftovers from yesterday and I will reheat it and then melt over some grated cheddar, just to ring the changes.
The fried potato won't be all that much fried, just microwaved, sliced, sprayed with oil and into the pan to crisp up and go golden brown.  I just really fancy some fried potato.  I might fry some onion with it too.
SW:  one to two healthy extra As for cheese, three and a half syns for the mayo in the coleslaw and half a syn for jelly

Exercise:  A good old walk along the beach, possibly take the ferry over the river, or I might walk up to the bridge.  Or maybe go the other way to the pier.  I also want to locate Lindsey's Groove video and do it, seeing as I'm missing the class this morning.

up to two healthy extra As
one healthy extra B
four and a half syns


  1. You're doing so well with your eating plans on this holiday, Joy, well done xx

    1. Thanks, Sooze. I'm not sure what the difference is but I'm happy at the moment. Really looking forward to my Thursday fish and chips, mind you. xx

  2. My goodness - what dedication finding a local group. I admire that hugely. Well - I reached target and an extra half pound! I was mortified that I had to go up to the front of the group to receive my award and pin badge - was NOT expecting that! Daughter lost half which, considering she had been away at the weekend, was brilliant. She pointed out that we had lost exactly the same amount of weight in exactly the same length of time! How strange is that as we don't live in the same house? Enjoy your day. xx

    1. Oh, Julia, that is absolutely fantastic. What a star. Even more of an achievement because things are so difficult right now. I'm so very glad for you.
      And congratulations to Daughter - she's doing fantastically too. xx
