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)

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
