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 one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
