Meal Planning 2013 - Week 3

After getting off to a good start by staying the same weight over Christmas and losing a pound in the first week of January, I had a bad week last week and put on weight. I don't know if it's that I fell off the wagon, or that I had to go to Slimming World on Thursday evening instead of my usual Saturday morning, and everyone says you weight more in the evenings if you are used to weighing yourself in the mornings - or a combination of both. Either way I need to do better this week to get that weight off again.

Breakfast Cereal
Lunch Jacket potato with cottage cheese
Dinner I'm thinking of joining a choir and going along to their first rehearsal tonight - which is straight from work so I'll need to take a packed dinner or something I can eat at my desk. I don't know if I will want to eat before or after the rehearsal so I will take a packet of Mattesons Fridge Raiders chicken pieces (2.5 syns), a pasta Mug Shot (syn free); I don't like fruit unless it's peeled so that't not much good for eating on the go. Right now I can't think of anything else I have in the fridge or freezer that I can take with me so I hope that's enough...
