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)

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

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
