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!

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…
