Weigh In #11

Whoo! A 3lb loss for BOTH of us this week! I'm thrilled, Hubby is still in a state of disbelief! We're both getting comments from people about how much weight we are losing too. It's all good!

I've been using this FitBit for a week now and I am pretty impressed so far. It's certainly given me the motivation I needed to get moving a bit more, and the reassurance that I was recording the right Active Points for my walking.

This week I have allowed myself a couple of treats again - i.e. two trips to Costa Coffee which I should know better than to do now. BUT I have worked hard to make it work. I am within my points over the week, and I have earned 15 active points. On the days that I did go to Costa I had Zero Points Soups for lunch, fruit for breakfast and low fat, low card, high vegetable content dinners, as well as walking to and from town to help rack up those steps. I'm NOT going back to a twice weekly habit though! I need to make a stop to Juicafe instead - where I can drink for zero points. But I do sooooo love my coffee and cake!

I have also been browsing the pre-loved games section of the shops in town and picked up a copy of My Fitness Coach for the Wii which I have started to use on the days I don't go out walking. Coupled with my Wii Fit Plus I'm getting a nice work out and range of routines. I have also been checking out aerobic routines and "mommy & baby" routines on YouTube, although I haven't tried any yet. I need to clear some of the clutter from my livingroom before I do much leaping about to routines as I am libel to do myself a serious injury crashing into the kids toys and games!

Hopefully this time next week I will be celebrating my next 7lb loss - I'm only 1lb off that - which will be a total of 3 1/2 stone in a year!

Weigh In:  

  • Me: -3lb 
  • Hubby: -3lb 
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 48lb 
  • Only 1lb off my next Silver 7!


Things I have learned this week: 

  • Walking is a still a great way to earn Active Points
  • There are cheap ways to access fitness routines that can fit around my life
  • I'm sleeping badly - I know I'm not sleeping brilliantly because I'm nursing Freddie, but FitBit is showing me just how badly I'm affected. 


Targets for this week: 

  • Earn at least 10 Active Points again
  • Walk at least 45,000 steps this week (beating last weeks 42,967)
  • 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.

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…
