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 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
