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

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…
