Back on Plan

Today marks the start of being back on plan for a few days. It was a bit of a shock to the system to get up at 4.30am though. At least it's not for a whole week this time :) 

After everything I ate yesterday, I went to bed feeling utterly stuffed and bloated, not a pleasant feeling, and it continued on through this morning. another reason that it was rather nice to get back on plan today. Much as I enjoyed all the Christmassy goodies, my body isn't used to eating like that anymore, and it didn't particularly enjoy it!

Despite getting rather low on fresh food, I did manage to cobble together food to take to work with me.

A handful of grapes was perfect as I still felt bloated, and I barely managed much of the 7up, I'm not keen on fizzies at the best of times, and definitely not when I'm feeling so bleaurgh. Breakfast was nice and light too.

My Dorset Cereals muesli (which is still a HeB thank goodness) plus an Alpen Light bar from my Hamper and some fruit - once again I didn't drink much of the fizzy :(

For my final break, I gave up on the fizzy and just had some tea and another clementine, I reckon they'll be a permanent fixture in the future as I've really enjoyed them! Not just for Christmas methinks.

After work, it was time to face the music as it were.....weigh in. Now, I'm a realist, I knew full well there would be a gain on the cards, you've seen what I've eaten, and what I've drunk over the last few days, and I'll be honest, I was expecting quite a large gain. However, I was quite pleasantly surprised to only gain 2lbs!

I also picked up my lovely new Members Pack, which has dealt me with a whole new conundrum, whether to switch over to the new book, and transfer all my stickers and losses (and gains) into the new book, or to stick with my old book for now. For now, I'm undecided - although my Consultant would rather I transferred over.....I never was good at making decisions!

With weigh in done, it was dinner time.

Pasta with lots and lots of veggies (courgettes, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach) plus the rest of the left over Quorn roast, all mixed in with half a tub of LowLow. It was delicious and really hit the spot. It was rather nice to eat proper, tasty, healthy food, and feel nicely satisfied afterwards, rather than feeling stuffed and lethargic.

Although, with so much Christmas food to get through, I might as well squeeze a few treats into my day.....

Cadbury's fingers are 1.5 syns each, and seeing as we have practically a whole box, I thought I'd have myself 6 syns worth of chocolatey goodness with my cup of tea before bed. I'm totally savouring them, just having a little nibble here and there between sips of tea :) Oh the restraint :)

Today has actually been easier than I expected. The house is still groaning with Christmas goodies, but the 4 little fingers have been enough to ease that chocolate craving. Over the weekend, I'll take a good look at my new SW pack and make sure I know about any of the changes that affect me, although just having the Green plan in a separate book will make things much, much easier for me as the old book is a tad hard to follow sometimes.


  1. well done for jumping back on hunni xx so far the most noticeable changes for me are the reduction in skimmed milk and dorset fruit muesli is down to 35g x going to read through the pack too and make sure i get it
