Weigh Day

I am stunned that I have lost weight this week. I thought I might drop a pound maybe. But 3lb?

I've had the odd naughty this week.... like half a very large cherry bun and the school Christmas fair, and a McDonald's with the kids. But I have watched my WW points to make sure I don't go mental with my treats.

I'm sticking to the fruit and veg thing though. I'm never hungry and never without something to snack on. I'm just choosing healthy snacks packed with good stuff.

This is my average menu:


Breakfast: Cheerios, skimmed milk, banana and a coffee.

Lunch: Salad sandwich with wholemeal bread & low fat cream cheese. Two pieces of fruit. Herbal tea.

Dinner: Proper meal with lean meat, 3+ veg, pasta/rice/potato. Sugar free juice.

Snacks: A very large box of carrots, celery & cucumber to nibble on as and when through out the day.

I've got stuff that I can nibble on to top up my points, like fat free yoghurt that I dollop all over fruit (like bananas or mixed berrys) and I do allow myself the odd bar of chocolate or burger with my kids. I'm not about self deprivation! And if I go round banning myself from stuff I'm more likely to fail. I think the big difference this time round is that I am not letting myself get hungry. If I start to feel peckish I get something to eat. But instead of diving straight for the biscuit jar, I have an apple, or chomp on a nice crunchy raw carrot.

I assume that I am continuing to lose weight because I am actually burning more. I'm trying to keep active when normally at this time of year I'm looking for any excuse to stay in, and if I have to go anywhere I'd drive.

I wonder how I'll get on next week? Anyway..... I have a roast dinner to cook today so I'm going to go and enjoy every bite of that! Nom nom nom!

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'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…

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
