Weigh In #7


Poor Hubby has not been looking forward to this weeks weigh in, he has serious trust issues after the unexpected 5lb loss recorded last week. This week he has a gain of 2lb... but really it's what we thought might happen. Last week he was (I think) still quite dehydrated when he got weighed. The hang-over kicked in a couple of hours after.

I don't want him to get disheartened though. So we looked at his chart. It has been a steady loss since the start, 2lb off one week, 3lb off the next, and then 2lb off again. We saw that if we ignored the big dip from last week that todays weight followed the same line on his chart. So he's happier now.

However, this week my mum turned up with a very expensive and very delicious looking chocolate fudge cake - a belated gift for Hubby's birthday. We've not touched it, saving it for today after weigh in so we can have all week to work it off!

This week I have lost 3lb, much happier after last weeks Stay The Same. I have made a few changes though, like ditching my beloved Nutella for the time being. I also missed out on my Costa Coffee treat this week - although I am planning to reduce my bucket of coffee to just a cup in future anyway.

I have completed the Halloween Hotties Challenge I set up to lose a stone before Halloween, recording a 15lb loss since the start of the challenge!

Life - being what it is - meant that I had to walk into town and back twice in one day earlier this week. Something I would never have contemplated before I started to loose weight. I though I would be exhausted, especially since I was carrying Freddie. But it was no difficulty at all! I even - thanks to my terrible memory and forgetting Tom's homework - had to climb our ridiculous hill twice between 8:45 and 9:00 one morning. I wasn't carrying Freddie (thankfully) but I managed it without being badly our of breath. I also had to carry my 2yo Georgie AND baby Freddie up the hill one day when George had fallen and banged his head twice resulting in him being too upset and sore to walk (this was not the safest thing I have ever done and don't recommend it, but needs must). 

So it seems that my fitness levels are improving.

Weigh In:

  • Me: -3lb
  • Hubby: +2lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  41lb
  • I completed the Halloween Hotties Challenge!

Things I have learned this week:

  • I can live without Nutella
  • I can walk to town twice in one day, while babywearing, without killing myself!
  • I can climb our hill twice in 20 minutes (not babywearing) without killing myself

Targets for this week:

  • Gain my next 7lb star - needs a loss of at least 1lb
  • Work off the chocolate cake that we were gifted (too expensive and posh to give away or chuck out)

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…
