No change this week

Although that should not come as a shock, since on Sunday I was taken to n all-u-can-eat chinese.... and boy was it good! And wasn't I naughty!!!

If anything I actually am shocked. Shocked that I haven't had a GAIN! Although my excerise has stepped up a little bit; I've stared staking my Avon books out again, which means about half to three quaters of an hour walking added onto my week. And I live in a VERY hilly area!

The rest of the month does not bode well though. For the next 3 sunday I have birthdays to attend... and in just over a week... a wedding dress fitting!!!!!

So I am having to be extra strict with food for the other 6 days of the week. I have picked up a magazine with GI stuff in. I'm not knocking WW on the head, no way, but I am going to blend WW with Rosemary Conley (RC) GI stuff too. Which means, having GI meals that fit into my WW Points. Or, to put it another way, not just the right portions, the right, filling foods too.

For example this morning, ionstead of my usual cerial (healthy, fiber filled stuff that is it) I've had a GI fruit salad, which is a satsuma, an apple, 25g of grapes, 15g oats and 2 spoons of virtually fat free yogurt. Very nice, very filling, counts towards my 5-a-day, has fiber, has dairy, looks like LOADS in a dish, and took better part of 7 mins to eat, rather than 2 for my cerial.

All for just 2.5 points!

Impressed!

And get this, this is lunch: 2 low fat grilled sausages, 1 slice wholegrain bread, tin of tomatoes (blended and cooked to resemble soup) and some fruit. (total 3.5 points)

Dinner: Chicken, leek and Potatoe pie (5 points)

Snacks: An actimel (which I have anyway, usually as part of breakfast, 1.5 points), and 8 cherry toms (0 points)

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…
