Weigh In #12

Oooh! What a week! It's not been the best of times in our house this week. Eldest child has been in trouble at school, and ill too so he was home for two days. Second child has a hacking cough which has kept him - and his brothers - up most nights. Third son has had a poorly tum & bum so he's been off nursery for two days too. And baby is teething. So we've all been tired and stressed most of the week.

When I am tired and stressed I eat. And I don't nibble on carrots, I chow down on chocolate! I've stayed within my points all week, but it's not a habit I want to get back into. Especially after kicking my Nutella habit.

I've also missed out on almost all of my exercise. I've walked to town a couple of times (thanks to Hubby being home and able to mind the kids for a couple of hours), but I've not used the Wii Fit or Fitness Coach at all.... I've earned a few Active Points but not the 10 minimum I was planning to do over the week. I haven't felt able to prance about on the Wii when I've had poorly kids sprawled out on the settee. Maybe it's an excuse. Maybe it's a valid reason. Either way it didn't get done. I didn't even get all my steps in for the week.

But sometimes life takes over and there are things that cannot be helped. I just need to not let it stop me from carrying on. It's a new week. Baby will be teething for a good while yet and experience says that number two son's cough will be here for a while too, but the two who were poorly are better now and we can handle the rest. It's certainly not going to stop me from getting my exercise done this coming week.

So, this is where we stand this week... and I'm actually pretty impressed!

Weigh In:  
  • Me:  -2lb
  • Hubby: -1lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 50lb!!!!
  • This week I earned another Silver 7 AND my 50lb Award!

Things I have learned this week: 
  • I still stress eat :(
  • Just because I'm within my points allowance it doesn't mean I can stuff myself with chocolate
  • I can have a bad week without quitting!

Targets for this week: 
  • Get back on track
  • Get my 30 mins "very active" daily for at least 4 days this week
  • Have at least one extra long walk (meet up with a friend for a proper walk) because even though I lost this week, all that chocolate will catch up with me if I don't! I don't want a delayed gain next week.

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…
