Loving the Loss

It's going to be a tough week this week. I am doing a lot of baking for my eldest boy, who had a party at Beaver's last night and has a cake sale later this week at school. I like to take part and do my bit. But I find it really hard to maintain any self control around all the tasty treats. This week I am surrounded by gingerbread and fudge (there will be a post on my main blog) and nibbling is inevitable.

SO! Since I am resigned to more going in, I need to make sure I am burning it off. I AM NOT QUITTING!

I don't have my Walking Buddy this week but I am still out and about. Yesterday and more than doubled my FitBit step goal. I was well over today as well. Tomorrow might be tricky (I am driving Hubby to a hospital appointment in the next town) but as long as the weather hold off I can get out for a bit on Thu & Fri. I'm going on a big walking trip with my eldest and his Beaver Scout troop on Saturday so that will help too.

I'm not imagining for one second that I will lose anything this week. I am battling for a Stay The Same. But it's a good long while before I'll have to bake/make anything else (I hope) so I'll take this in my stride, chalk it up to experience, etc etc. What I am NOT going to do is say to myself "oh sod it, it's a gain this week so just chuck it all in!"

I have to admit to being a little bit in love with my new shape. It's nice to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and see just how much slimmer I am now than I ever remember being. I'm not far off my pre-wedding weight (I found an old blog post with my weight chart on) - the lightest I got to that time was 11 stone. I am 11 stone 6lb right now!

There is no way I am going to let a bit of baking break me now - even with a STS or a Gain this week I am NOT GOING TO QUIT!

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
