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!

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…
