Weigh In #17 - Mid Christmas Break!

OK, so this weigh in is a little late. But we've been away for Christmas, only just got home yesterday, and I wanted my weigh in to be "normal", i.e. My scales, my house, usual time, usual circumstances etc. I didn't want to do what my Hubby did which was get on his sisters scales, fully dressed, half way through the day, with a belly full of food.... it was not a good result for him. But it was also not an accurate result! He refused to get on the scales this morning, saying he was going to "wait until weigh day on Sunday".

I am NOT waiting for the next weigh in, I am weighing in now for last Sunday.

Aaaannnnnd...... 

I have lost 3lb! That 3lb that I gained in the week before Christmas, when I was eating cake mix and loads of junk, has GONE!

I have not been following WW at all over the last 9 days since my last weigh. But our eating has been all over the place. Christmas morning was one of my Mum's famous giant breakfasts, and Christmas Dinner at my Sister-in-Law's. We didn't have any other meals that day. The three nights we stayed at the hotel we consumed our body weight in breakfast (cereal, croissants, full English) and often didn't have another meal at all - we'd have a few savory nibbles, a bit of cold meat, or slice of Christmas Cake as we visited folk - picking the smallest amounts to eat at buffets. But not an actual lunch, dinner, or tea. Not because we were trying to cut them out, but because we were well fuelled at the start of the day. I actually felt full! (The kids DID have lunch and dinner because they don't like a big breakfast)

However, we are home now. And there is a mountain of chocolate, biscuits, and other sweet treats just sitting there staring at me. I have no problem ignoring the kids stuff. But some of it is mine and I am acutely aware of it. I split my chocolate orange with Georgie last night. And I have been nibbling on marzipan, and chocolate coated macadamias since we arrived home and unpacked last night. But the diet is still on hold until the 4th Jan so I am not stressing about it. I'm glad I lost that 3lb (really really glad) and while I would love to stay the same or maintain until the next weigh in, I am not going to cry if I gain again a little.

Weigh In:  
  • Me: -3 lb
  • Hubby: ???
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 55lb
  • Last weeks weight blip as gone!

Things I have learned this week: 
  • A rest is as good as a change
  • Christmas Week does not mean I HAVE to gain weight!
  • I walk far more steps than I realise when I'm playing with the kids!

Targets for this week: 
  • Get walking when I can while Hubby is off work (starting with a trip to town today)
  • Work out what junk I have and portion it out. Some to finish pre diet restart, some to save for weekend treats
  • Not gain too much! (I'd be thrilled with a STS on Sunday)

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
