Weigh In #14

I've been ill this week. It was only a matter of time with most of the kids being poorly last week. I thought I had managed to fend off the germs... but no. They got me GOOD! I lost the whole of Wednesday. Me and baby Fred stayed in bed pretty much all day. I only surfaced while Hubby went on the school runs as we were expecting deliveries. Although it could have been much worse; my poor walking buddy has mumps and it totally out of commission for the whole week and more. On reflection one day in bed with "man flu" and the rest of the week with a stuffed up head and almost no voice seems like nothing! So the upshot of this is that I did very little in the way of exercise this week. I made one trip into town. I didn't use the Wii Fit. It was all a bit poor really. I did eat into my "Weekly" points, but didn't go over them!

I did spend 3-4 hours wandering round a shopping centre on Monday (where I bought some size 12 jeans that fit!!!) but was pushing Freddie in the pram as slings are no good for trying clothes on, so the Fitbit didn't record as many steps (no arm swinging, should have brought the pedometer instead) and I kind of blew a day and a half's points on Christmasy lattes, panini, and cake.

And then there was the takeaway on Friday too. I felt so run down and so tired that when I looked in my near bare cupboards & fridge - on account of having been poorly mid week and not gone shopping - I had no inspiration to invent a meal from scraps.

Hubby had a bad food week too. Although I've been too ill to notice what little extras he's been sneaking most of the time. I have found the peanut butter on the kitchen side a couple of times, suspicious by it's proximity to a teaspoon... (much the same as my Nutella eating!)

Not a great week, but I still managed a good loss. I need to get out walking again and not bookend the week with "off" days. I know there's nothing wrong with the odd take away but given the blooper that was Monday's food diary I shouldn't have done it this week!

At least I didn't over eat the rest of the time. And I have NOT lost motivation! 

Weigh In:  

  • Me: -3lb
  • Hubby: +1lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 55lb
  • I'm only 1lb off a 4 stone loss!

Things I have learned this week: 
  • I can be ill without binge eating
  • I can make "informed" choices when ordering take-away
  • When I'm walking with the pram instead of the sling I need to use the pocket pedometer instead / as well as my Fitbit

Targets for this week: 
  • Get out walking - even if it's just the long way to town - at least 3 times (and log it on Runtastic)
  • Drink more water! I'm not doing that enough - again! Why is it so hard??
  • I have 3lb to lose before Christmas (mini challenge) so anther 2lb+ loss would be great!

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

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
