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!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
