Diet Planning

With no more babies planned (EVER!) I am starting to think that now is the time to take a bit more care of myself and get my figure back. I was a size 12-14 before I got married in 2007 and then went on to have 4
kids in 6 years without much serious thought to my weight or figure in between - just some slight weight loss which usually resulted in me getting pregnant again! The biggest I have been (without a Bump) is a size 20.

Right now there is still a month to go before I have my 4th & final baby. Because I have been under the threat of gestational diabetes I have tried to watch what I eat in this pregnancy. I was 14 stone 3lb (199lb) and a size 18 the day I found out I was pregnant.  I would like get to 10 and a half stone (147lb).

I'm not a massive fan of exercise, but I do like to swim. I'm not great at controlling what I eat unless I am signed up with something like Weight Watchers so I will likely do that again too.

I have always lacked motivation to get fit and slim, there seemed little point putting in all that effort if I was just going to get pregnant again. But now I'm not. I'm done. I have 3, soon to be 4, kids who are all active and I need to be able to keep up with them, and not embarrass them by being that "Fat Mum". I need to be able to set a good example (as some of my kids are less naturally inclined to a healthy lifestyle than others)

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

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
