Weigh In #23

Eeeek! Look what I did! I lost that 1lb and got my 7lb Valentines Challenge beat a whole week early! I am thrilled! I really really didn't think I was going to get there this week. There have been some bad food choices made this week (like the amazing pork pies from our local butchers - nom nom nom! And junk at the cinema too...) but I have put some miles walking in - 24.88 according to my FitBit - and it has paid off!

I have been over my Weight Watchers Pro Points this week. I used all my Weeklies and even though I earned 36 Active Points I only had 5 left over by last night. But I guess that just shows that the Weight Watchers points system does work. I am SO far over my allotted points but still lost weight because I exercised enough to counteract the extra food!

Unexpected losses delight me... And I get an extra hit of motivation too. I can't help thinking over and over this morning "how much would I have lost if I had NOT eaten so much pie?" I did enjoy the pie though. I love the fact that Weight Watchers means I can have some - sometimes - as long as I work it into my points and ramp up the Active Points. Next week I will do all the walking, and none of the pie. See where it gets me!

Weigh In:
  • Me: -1 lb
  • Hubby: +1 lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 60 lb
  • Valentines Challenge BEATEN!

Things I have learned this week:
  • Apps are GOOD! I've loved seeing my progress as I go on my wanders with Freddie
  • Weight Watchers points system REALLY DOES WORK when you use it properly
  • I need to buy FEWER pies when Hubby feel the need for them (1 can split 4 ways, not just 2)

Targets for this week:
  • Get a good start on my next challenge (a stone by Easter weekend)
  • Not dip into my Active Points (ie stay well within my Weeklies)
  • 2lb loss please!

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
