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 one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
