Paint Your Wagon

Oh dear. It went so well Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday. But if you were to look at my food diary, you can tell when I went back to work.

The super free shrivelled off, the syns went up, the free was whatever came in a packet. It was shocking.

When I’m at home I’m brilliant, I don’t pick at all and I eat real Slimming World meals. When I list 24lb in 12 weeks last time it was when I was unemployed and at home all the time.

Now I’m working I’m really finding it had to eat real food, especially with long shifts. I need to plan ahead and look at what I’m working and make floor beforehand. So far I’ve had two ready meals that take up 70% of my day’s syns and more biscuits that I have fat rolls.

The problem is, nothing free is quite as quick and tasty as a high syn snack.

Plan for the week – pre-cook work meals!

Feeling Good

It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. Etc, etc.

I am fed up of half heatedly sticking to my diet. I have lost the same lb a hundred times over then gained it back. Did I mention I am off on holiday in three weeks?

This week, and until then, I am on it like a rash. I went shopping and bought cereal bars and kid cheeses and fat free yoghurts. See, I’m planning.

Explain – on Slimming World you must have one Calcium option and one Fibre option – hence my cereal bars and kiddy cheese.
