Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “admit.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
I have to admit, I think I may have failed myself.
I have honestly been recording my meals in my food diary since starting SW a year ago.
The only exceptions have been while we were away from the marina, when shopping for things like fruit and fresh veg have been a little difficult, but even then I tried to keep on track.
The diet record sheet is divided into sections to list Speed foods, Free foods, A and B options and syns. In my diary, I have recorded my actual meals, A and B options and listed my syns.
Out of curiosity, I have handwritten on a standard A4 sheet of paper my food diary in the same style as the SW diet record sheet for the previous 2 weeks to this one.
I shall be taking this with me on Tuesday.
I have noticed something.
I am eating plenty of Speed food (fruit and veg included either in my recipes or as a side on my plate), Free food (jacket potatoes, rice, pasta, eggs, meats, fruit such as bananas, blueberries, mangoes) and listing my syns.
I had forgotten dried apricots when I had them as they are One Syn each, though technically this should not have made that much difference.
One day we had a Subway sandwich, which even though was one of the lower calories and I had no dressing on it, it still attracted 14 syns on its own.
On the days we were out, we either skipped a meal or had a sandwich deal from a supermarket or garage sharing the sandwich and packet of crisps between us.
My cheese sauce for cauliflower or McCheese is made with milk from my allowance, and I’ve synned the cheese if it wasn’t my A option.
Sugar added to my sweet and sour sauce or curries has been synned correctly but I did forget to syn the sultanas, even though they were just a handful.
So my conclusion is this:
Although I owned up to my syns, I don’t seem to have admitted enough by omission.
