Weigh in #10

Blimy.... 10 weeks of weigh in's already since we kicked this diet back to life post baby. I'm very impressed with both myself and my Hubby for sticking with it. By now we've normally jacked it in. So YAY! Go us!

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.

Weigh In:

  • Me: -1lb
  • Hubby: -3lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  45lb
  • Exactly 2 stone to goal!

Things I have learned this week:

  • Perseverance pays off!
  • I can't binge on food like I used to, and I don't really want to any more either.
  • Finding ways to earn Active Points can actually be fun!

Targets for this week:

  • Earn at least 10 Active Points
  • Walk at least 5000 steps a day (using FitBit Flex)
  • Drop at least 1 lb, aim for 2 lb!



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.

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
