Weigh In #19

I've had a rotten week. I could write a dozen posts on all the things that have gone wrong or have bothered me this week, but to nutshell it: cough, cold, snots, sciatica, leaking walking boots, baby-growth-spurt, sleepless nights... you get the jist of it! We've also been getting some stuff done at home - boiler service etc - which has meant that cooking proper meals hasn't been an option some days. And there are still Christmas Goodies to be had. We have made bad choices and over indulged A LOT! For the first time ever I have used ALL my points, inc my Weeklies! AND I've eaten into my Active Points too!

On the other hand, the kids went back to nursery and school again this week so I've been able to get out and about walking again - made even easier with some new, higher quality, walking boots after I went straight through the soles of my first pair (this time I got some worth £120 - £60 on Jan Sale -  instead of £16). And Freddie's growth spurt has probably earned me plenty of WW points back. Although there is one change there that I am going to have to get used to; Freddie has now started some solid food as well as his milk. So I no longer get 14 extra Pro Points, I just get 7 now - starting today.

It all seems to have balanced out though, because the weight still shifted. Both the Hubby and I have managed to lose weight. We are in a state of disbelief... and think that it might go on again for next week. But we have now finished pretty much all of the Christmas Goodies (all that's left now is half a box of Thorntons choc and some Jaffa Cakes that are out-of-sight & out-of-MY-reach) so if we can keep up with some exercise we might be ok.

Oh, and I finally managed to hit that 4 stone loss!

Weigh In:  
  • Me: -3 lb
  • Hubby: -2 lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 56lb
  • 4 stone lost since Nov 2013! (Only 19lb to go!!!)

Things I have learned this week: 
  • Cheap walking boots are a false economy, and January Sales are awesome!
  • It's easier to let good habits slip than break bad ones
  • I can get as many steps in re-jogging my house as I can on a "walk" day. But it's not as much fun!

Targets for this week: 
  • Get used to having 7 fewer points a week day!
  • Get back to eating soup for lunch
  • Get back to drinking more water (I keep coming back to this.....! Why is it so hard???)



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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

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

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
