Only a couple more weeks of my Countdown package and I am hoping to hit target (or beyond) either tonight or by the last one.
We’ve had a few salad days this past week as it’s been so hot. Usually it backfires on me and I retain the water, but I’ve tried to be sensible. We shall see. I discovered a few years ago that I didn’t have this problem if I had chips!! Chips are a no-no as a rule, though a 100g portion of wedges will set me back only 2½ syns. Have them with the breaded cod we like, and that’s a whopping 11 syns in total, so most of my 15 allowance!
The above was Hubby’s meal not mine as I had a tuna jacket potato with the leftovers of my beetroot salsa from last week’s tasting session.
I tried for a couple of SP days but ended up having potatoes and pasta which although free, are not speed food.
In addition to the steak salad, we both had cold meat one day, and I also had Light Mini Babybels and prawns on later days.
It wasn’t all lettuce though as I made another vegetarian lasagna, a chicken curry, and had a three egg mushroom omelette one evening.
I’ve already done posts on desserts this week, so all that remains now is How Did I Do?
The bad news is I’ve gained this week. The good news is it’s just half a pound, and I am convinced it’s down to the number of salads I’ve had as I have not over-synned any day.
As weigh-in is done and dusted, I’ve come home wanting to eat everything in sight, but settled on cheese on toast, boiled eggs, and gingernut biscuits, so have maxed out on syns today.
Back to basics (and no salad!) next week as my aim is to lose the pound and a half required to target.
Wish me luck!!!
