Was out of the office for work today so had to get up in the middle of the night (well it felt like it!) to get to the train station. So with no time for breakfast I packed up this little lot for the 3 hours each way train journey, along with a couple of cups of coffee with skimmed milk this kept me from getting hungry and raiding the trolley for kit Kat’s.
lunch turned out to be not quite as good as i’d expected, i find it hard to find something for lunch in a city ive never been to before, i was looking for a m&s as i know i can get chicken and salad there for free but with 10 mins before my train left i had to make do with a tesco express at the station and at 3pm, there wasnt much choice left either but i thought i’d done ok with a chicken and noodle salad (would so be free if id have made it myself) but after just putting it through the syn calculator and it comes out at 5.5 syns, looking at the ingredients there is oil, sugar and cornflour so that will be why, however it was only 195 calories for the pack so not hourendous.
I also picked up a bottle of water and a muller light, but after discovering i didnt pick up a plastic spoon i took the yogurt home (after seriously considering drinking it out the pot … decided against it on a packed train!)
So onto weigh in and to see the if success express was worth it… 3lbs off! so obviously i was over the moon with that, plus i also got my 1/2 stone award!
As i found SE quite difficult to achieve at every meal, ever day im not going to do it every day this week, but as it seems to produce such good results, i’m going to try to so it for 3 days this week, which will be Tuesday, Wednesday and thursday, as i have a long weekend off work and will have at least one meal out so might not be able to do it on the other days this week.
On to tonight’s dinner which was a quickie meal which consisted of spraying a frying pan with fry light, salt and pepper and chucking in some halved pre cooked new potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, broccoli and a quorn fillet. I also made a sauce from chicken stock and quark to accompany it.
I made use of the muller light seeing as i know had a spoon, i poured it on top of a chopped banana and topped with a drizzle of choc sauce, sort of like a banoffee pudding 🙂

walking around a building site for 4 hours with steel toe capped boots on?? – honestly, my legs are killing me!
