Weigh In #20

Well, who would have thought this would get to week 20?? Honestly... I don't think I did! I usually pack my diets in well before now. Although I am struggling right now as I battle against Seasonal Depression and the rotten weather (who ever said the weather is no excuse didn't have to consider baby wearing in a hailstone storm!)

I haven't even felt up to doing a vlog this week. Mostly because my mood shows on my face & hair and I look shocking!

I have not done well this week. I have over eaten again. I am raiding the kids chocolates and feel like I want to go into hibernation. I am in urgent need of some walking time! I need to get out of the house, get busy, and fill my brain with good hormones instead of filling my belly with Cadbury's. I only earned 10 active points this week. I'd like double that. My walking buddy messaged me today to arrange a walk for tomorrow and I've said yes. I would have gone to town at least anyway, but there's a good chance we'll go a lot further if the weather is fine. I can deal with cold, it's wet that causes a problem because of my wearing Freddie. He doesn't have a waterproof that will do the job.

I have checked my weight on and off through the week, which is not something I normally do, but I needed to ram home the truth that my nibbling was affecting my weight loss. Especially now that I have lost 7 points with Freddie eating solids now as well as having breast milk. I have wavered half a pound up and down all week - actually logging a bit of a loss on Thursday - but today is my official weigh day and I wound up with a Stay The Same. Not great. But it could so very easily have been a hefty gain so I'm content with that. Content-ish...

I'm trying to get positive. Here's what I did right this week:

  • Kept tracking even with the nibbles
  • Walked Jack too & from Beavers instead of driving
  • Walked to town once, even though I didn't feel up to it
  • Even though I have snacked, my actual meals are still right
  • I DIDN'T GIVE UP!

I need to keep going! Here are my weeklies.

Weigh In:  
  • Me: STS
  • Hubby: -1 lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 56lb
  • 4 stone lost since Nov 2013! (Only 19lb to go!!!)

Things I have learned this week: 
  • WInter is still my enemy and I need to get out of my rut!
  • Dropping 7 points in one go is really hard!
  • I am NOT a QUITTER!

Targets for this week: 
  • Get used to having 7 fewer points a week day!
  • WALK! Hit my target steps Mon-Fri (it's only 6000 FFS!)
  • DRINK!!!! Damn it!

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…
