Weigh In #6

We're recovering from a naughty couple of days food-wise. It was Hubby's birthday on Friday so we had an Indian Takeaway - including starters and sides - and then we had cake too. And more of the cake on Saturday too.

So I'm not in the least bit surprised that this week I have a "Stay the same" result from the weigh in.

Hubby, on the other hand, has lost! He is now 17 st 8 lb! The Wii Fit cheerily announced he had lost 5lb this week... and Hubby doesn't believe it! Especially since he went out drinking with his buddies on Fri night after that takeaway. I reminded him that last week he had a 2lb loss that only recorded as 1lb so some of it will be balancing out from that, and there was the possibility that he was still a little dehydrated from the booze.... but honestly, he should take the 5lb loss result and run with it! I would!

Weigh In:

  • Me: STS
  • Hubby: -5lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  38lb
  • More than half my target weight lost since November!!!!

Things I have learned this week:

  • Working hard all week when I have an "off day" coming up means I CAN avoid a gain
  • I don't want to be having many takeaways!

Targets for this week:

  • A loss! Even if it's just 1lb
  • Find a longer walker than just to town & back - I'm doing it in half the time now and it's not the challenge it was a month ago.

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

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
