Diet Week 1

I'm half heartedly starting my diet... lets call it healthy eating and portion control rather than a diet. Diet sounds awful when I'm breast feeding. I weighed myself last week and came in at 14 stone 8oz, which was only 3lb heavier than when I got my positive pregnancy test.

Well... today, just 7 days later, I am 13 stone 8oz! A whole stone loss from last week, and 11lb lighter than positive test day!

I'm not kidding myself that I have shed a stone in fat in just one week, clearly I haven't - and it would not have been healthy or safe if I had. I can only assume that most of this is milk (last weekend my milk came in and my boobs were as big as my head! Now they are more normal) and the water retention I still had in my legs and feet.

Regardless of what that lost stone was though, it's gone! And I am lighter now than before I was pregnant. A lot lighter! I have a nice round 50lb to shift now to get to my ultimate goal (super skinny me with a BMI of 24). And I'm not really eating any differently at the moment, a bit more fruit maybe (WW says breastfeeding mums should have 8 a day, not 5) but that's all.

I wonder how I'll do this week......?

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 one of thos…

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

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…
