Applying myself for 2021

Getting the head in the right mindset to apply myself back into the SW plan has taken a while. The goodies I bought ‘For Christmas’ are mostly still where I stored them, and in years past we would probably have scoffed the lot by now and not given much thought to tight trousers and tees, or getting puffed just by putting the washing or rubbish out.
Said goodies all have a good date on them, well into the Summer, so I can reward myself on weigh in days ONLY if I’ve lost something. It’s a plan.
The food diary is up and running, and on Day 1, I listed my current weight, target and parameters for SW, and my aim.
There is no timeframe other than getting back in target, and the first official text in is Sunday 3rd January. I have checked the bible which is now sitting alongside my diary so that I can check up on any syn values I may have forgotten.

On December 31st, I cooked a McCheese for Hubby and tomato pasta for me. I added mushrooms and green beans as well as the usual onion and garlic, and the cheese on top was one of the 2 ‘A’ choices I am allowed on plan.

New Year’s Day saw us both having fish, peas and wedges. I added carrots and green beans to my plate and the meal saw a total of 11 syns, 8Β½ for the fish as it was in breadcrumbs, and 2Β½ for the 100g of wedges.
I have a pack of mushrooms in the fridge, which are free and speed food, so for my next meal I will work something around that with a jacket potato.

Here we go again!!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’m trying to foist some cookies onto my in laws but they haven’t given me a time when I can drop them off. I’m starting to wonder if they even want them… I’m going to freeze them tomorrow so that the temptation will go away!
