And the scales say.......
I've lost 1 lb and Hubby has lost 3lb!
Yesterday was a bit of a naughty day though. It was the local fireworks display over at the Castle and as the kids are still a bit too young to be traipsing out to the Castle at 8 o'clock at night we thought we'd give them a mini version of the whole experience at home before going to get a glimpse of the display form the top of our hill (you get a reasonable view of the Castle from the end of our road so many of the families with kids near us gather there each year). We had hot dogs and jacket potatoes for dinner followed by the chocolate apples I'd made with the kids in the afternoon, then supped hot chocolate when we got back home. OK, so it's all within points so long as I take a chunk out of the weekly allowance, but it's not something we can make a habit of. Especially the night before we get weighed! Although to be honest I felt so over stuffed afterwards that I wouldn't WANT to do it again! I can't hold as much foot as I could a couple of months ago.
My weight loss seems to have slowed down. I am still losing and that's great, but I'd like to be dropping 2lb a week not 1lb (coz I am impatient). I need to shake things up a bit! This week I have started a couple of new things. For one I have bought and started to use a FitBit Flex (I'll do a blog post on it after I've had a good use of it) and I am recording my exercise a bit more accurately by using it (in theory). Secondly, I am having to work harder to earn my Active Points now I'm only overweight so I have joined an "Active" challenge on Weight Watchers. It's only to earn 10 AP a week but it's a start.
Things I have learned this week:
Targets for this week:
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.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
