Breastfeeding & Dieting

I am still breastfeeding, and I plan to for a good while yet. So I need to make sure I am eating well to make good milk.

Weight Watchers makes a point allowance for breastfeeding mums, I get 14 extra Pro Points while Freddie is exclusively breastfed, it will drop to 7 when he is taking some solids as well.

I've been looking about for info on healthy eating while breastfeeding and there is plenty out there. The NHS website has some sound advice and snack recommendations. The basics being making sure to get 5 fruit/veg a day, 2 portions of fish a week, some wholegrain, dairy, and plenty of water. Same as everyone else really!

I made a good start this morning, breakfast was 4 Pro Points made up of All-Bran, whole milk and a banana. But then the grocery delivery I had ordered before I decided to start tracking my food arrived... including an angel cake, custard, and pizzas. So I'm guessing this week wont be great (because I'm not going to pretend for a moment that I'm not going to join my Hubby & kids in eating those things!) but  I can call this week an "easing in" week, heehee!

Now the serious thinking about food needs to start. I already try to plan my meals well ahead of time, although life gets in the way sometimes. I already cook healthy meals most of the time. It's portion control I need to work on.

So... Meals for the next few days are:

  • Chicken & Pasta with a (jar of) Red Pepper Pesto Sauce
  • Cottage Pie (home made) & broccoli
  • Pizzas from the counter at Asda

I haven't worked out the points yet but I will (and will probably come back and edit this to add them on).

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 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

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…
