Self sabotage!

So this week has been pretty good ... almost.
I've been so careful, I saved syns, I'm trying to keep my water intake up and make sure I'm eating lots of fruit and veg.

All was going great until the weekend.

Every other weekend we take out my father in law, and he likes to go out to eat. So we eat out both days.
Now by choice, I wouldn't be doing this.
Firstly because of the money, but also because I want to eat healthily and I would prefer eating out to be an occasional treat.

So I wasn't looking forward to it, especially being my first week when I'm trying to get back in the swing of it all.

I was well pleased with myself though because  on Saturday I chose semi healthy and not too far off plan ...
A jacket potato, the savoury tuna version, with a nice side salad and iced water to drink.

Now I knew there would be some mayo on there, but I was expecting it to be tuna with chopped tomato and cucumber, onion or the suchlike with maybe a bit of mayonnaise mixed in.

When it arrived, this was what greeted my eyes....


There can be no other way of describing it.
I couldn't believe my eyes!

What to do? I couldn't exactly send it back.
So I ate it.

Don't get me wrong, it was lovely, but it was screaming SYN OVERLOAD at me with every bite.

How do you even begin to count syns?
So I counted 15/20 but I'm pretty sure it's more like 100 syns!!

Talk about self sabotage. My very first week as well.
I could have cried.
I obviously need to be more careful.

So, tomorrow is weigh in and I've gone from being very hopeful for a loss to being unsure if I might not even see a gain!

Nothing I can do about it now though.

Lesson learned and Sunday, today, we just went for a subway and I ate a nice healthy turkey salad with no sauce! Completely on plan.
Yay me!

Anyhow, I'll be back with the damage in the morning .... EEK!!!
