Weigh In #8

I got my next 7lb award star! So I am super chuffed about that. It means I have lost 16lb since having Freddie, and a whacking great 3 stone since November last year.

I am now only 2 stone and 3 lb off my target weight. I am more than half way to target!

However..... this weekend we have been away (we are still away) and have not been following the diet. Breakfast for me has been cereal and a cooked breakfast like I normally have when we stay in a hotel. I did choose Special K instead of Honey Nut Cornflakes and Quorn Sausages instead of regular pork ones... and ditched the bacon all together. But it was still way more than I should have had. I also plumbed for my usual scampi and chips for our pub lunch and followed that up with another cooked meal for my dinner - although it was a "Slimming World" approved meal (my Sisters In Law do Slimming World).

They way I see it.... I have let my hair down for a weekend. For the last time before Christmas. I over indulged, but made some more sensible choices than I would have previously. I know I have some serious make up to when I get back home. I have already placed my grocery order for Monday morning... all healthy stuff! I am fully expecting a gain next weekend, but I am going to work hard to make it a stay-the-same. Now I've lost 42 lb and really really don't want to gain any of it back!

Weigh In:

  • Me: -1lb
  • Hubby: STS
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  42lb
  • I have lost 3 stone since Nov 2013!

Things I have learned this week:

  • Chocolate tastes better when I haven't had any in a week!
  • Quorn sausages and soy mince aren't as bad as I had imagined
  • My will power is only as strong as my desire not to walk to the shop in the rain. If it's available I will still cave in :(

Targets for this week:

  • Not to record a gain at my next weigh in! Serious work needed after this weekend!
  • Survive Half Term without eating the same amount of junk as a hyperactive school boy - coz I wont run it off like they do!
  • Drink more water. It's a habit which is slipping!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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…
