Diet's New Starting Point

I didn't do as badly as I thought I would over Christmas.

About half way through the holiday I had gained 4 lb, but by Sunday I had already lost 2 of those. So I am claiming a 2 lb Christmas gain, and a New Year starting point of 14 stone exactly!

I am struggling to get my commitment back to the diet after Christmas. I have really got my taste for sweet things and carbs back with a vengeance. And it's cold and wet outside which just makes me crave comfort food all the time too. I took my usual box of veggie sticks to work yesterday and really didn't want them. I was day dreaming about mashed potatoes. Warm. Soft. Creamy. Tasty. I had some for dinner! But I stayed within my pro points so that's ok.

Only being 2 lb heavier than before Christmas is a good thing. If I had gained loads of weight I would have been very disheartened and wanted to give up. But this is still very important. I want to get back below 14 stone, ideally loosing 2-3 lb, this week because I'm back at the doctors on Monday afternoon and I want to show progress on my weight.

I need to sort out some nice warm, filling, low point food to take to work for my lunches! Salad is not cutting it! It is ruddy cold in there, and I am acutely aware of how close the local fish & chip shop is with it's piping hot battered cod; chips and gravy; sausages and pies..... *drool*

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…
