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.

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!
