6lb gain


Gutted. I weigh 11 stone and 6 lb! Look at how HORRIBLE that chart looks now! I'm almost back up to my 10% goal instead of down to just a lovely 11 stone.... the lightest I have ever been as an adult.... Almost makes me want to cry!

Not as gutted as I would have been if it still said 8 pounds this morning, but still, 6 pounds is almost half a stone that I have gained over Christmas! Well, that'll teach me for living of bacon, sausage and chocolate for 5 days wont it!?


And I do know that I can be 11 stone, it's no longer a distant dream or impossibiliy which it had felt like for so long. I know deep down that I will not only get back to 11 stone, but that I will also get lower and healthier. At 11 stone I am still too heavy to be healthy for my height and build, and I wont relax until I am beblow the 10 and a half stone mark. That's when I get to the top of my healthy weight band.

But as for the Valentines Challenge.... well, it's 7 weeks between now and my last WI before Valentines day. I should loose at least 1 lb a week, so that would be half a stone, and would get me to 1 lb lower than I was before XMas. But I'm not happy with that! I want to aim for 2 lb a week and shift a whole stone! And that's not impossible. A big pig out like this one might kick my body into motion again - now it knows I'm not starving it - and I might loose weight a little quicker again for a while like when you first start a diet.

Also I WILL be going back to the gym, as of NEXT WEEK! I plan to go on Monday and use the gym, and while I'm there see if / when the pool will be open. If it is I am hoping to go to the Gym every Monday, and the Pool every Friday. I might even start calling in on a Wednesday too, but I'm not sure if I'll swim or gym it then. See how it goes.

There are classes I can go to as part of my membership, so I think I'll have look at the new 2006 class lists and see if there is anythig I fancy. I feel a bit daft doing something like areobics, but if it burns the cals, and I am already paying for them in my membership, what's the harm? And anyway, there might be something a little more interesting like Yoga or something that I can join. I'm not the best in the world for sticking to a class, it's not like the gym or pool where you can just turn up and do what ever. I know I might not stick to a class, but I'll have a look anyway and see what there is. I have to remember that once the schools go back I might not be able to go to the pool whenever I want as the school kids will be in having thier lessons....

Who's have thought that planning a fitness scheme for yourself would be so hard!? Still, if I get it right and I get a good hour or hour and a half in two or three times a week I would loose some more weight and tone up pretty quickly.

Well, that's the plan anyway.

These are pictures of my loal gym and pool by the way, before they have been done up. The gym is much much nicer than it looks there, and I am yet to see the newly done up pool. Just thought you'd like to see where I go to get fit!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
