He's lost his motivation

There is a problem.... The Hubby seems to have lost motivation for the weight loss. He is still losing weight - as you can see from my weekly weigh in posts - but he seems to be losing interest in the whole thing. And he is craving the fattening foods which got us obese in the first place.

Take last week for example. We were discussing what to buy in for our Dinners for the week. And he wanted pies. And pork chops. I then went ahead and bought them, and joined him in eating them. Because I'm a muppet like that. So long as we're both on the same page I am strong and can carry on going. But the moment I can find an "excuse" to slip I'm in there pigging out. Admittedly, I over estimated how much pie the kids would eat. I bought 4 when two would have done. Then me and the Hubs ate pie for lunch for the next two days. 3 days of pie. Each day was (as I weighed them and found out) a DOUBLE HELPING of pie EACH. So.... in 3 days I had eaten 6 helpings of pork pie.

Over 60 pro points of pie.

Crap!

On top of that we had a binge day the Sunday previous. 50 points of junk at dinner time - as well as the cooked breakfast and Sunday roast. Oh, and on Friday I had a hotdog and snacks at the cinema with our eldest son (it was his "treat night")

I walked and walked and walked in an attempt to undo some of the damage (after all that had worked the week before, although it was much less damage) but I seem to have losts control of what goes in and I am limited to the amount of time I have to burn it off again.

I am not saying this is the Hubby's fault. It's not, it's mine. I need more self control. But I have so very very little self control when it comes to yummy scrummy food and encouragement to buy it. I really REALLY need my man back on board with this diet or I am in serious danger of being lost at sea!

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'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…

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
