Weigh In #4

This has not been the greatest week for me. I have had a rotten, sinking cold which had me confined to my bed for 24 hours and rendered physical exercise impossible! Ok... not impossible but unpleasant enough a prospect for me to have done nothing over my usual for the second half of the week. I am still snotty, coughing and wheezing now so it may well be a few more days before I attempt the wii fit again although I will be walking to town tomorrow morning.

Hubby had a bit of a panic about his weigh in at the start of the weekend. He had been telling me what he had been eating for his lunch at work, feeling ever so proud and making healthy choices, and he saw me wince. There was nothing wrong with the things he had chosen, dried fruit, nuts, baked crisps instead of fried etc. All of these are great.... but not all in one sitting. So we googled the food he had eaten and worked out the points. He had eaten a good 15+ more than he should have. His face went grey!

So he says "What can we eat that has NO points in it??" and I started to make 1 point soup (it should be 0 point soup, but I like to cook the veggies in a little oil before I blend them into soup, they taste better that way) and we have had that for one meal a day, with some bread.

Yesterday was weigh in day. We wasn't looking forward to it. I was sure I would be a Stay The Same or even a dreaded Gain! Hubby was convinced he had gained too. Imagine how happy we were when we saw that I had lost 2lb and the Hubby had gone and lost 3lb!

Weigh In:

  • Me: - 2lb
  • Hubby: -3lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  35lb
  • Another silver 7 awarded!
  • Total of 2 1/2 stone loss since November!!!!

Things I have learned this week:

  • Trying to Wii Fit when you are sick, aching and coughing is not a good idea.
  • There is no shame in not exercising when you're ill as long as you get back to it when you're better
  • Veggie soup can be healthy AND tasty!

Targets for this week:

  • Lose 2lb this week and get under 13 stone!
  • Walk to town twice
  • Get back on Wii Fit before the end of the week

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

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

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
