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 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

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
