Weigh In #24

So I gained 1lb this week. It's not unexpected. The kids have been sick and off school which has meant no walking out - apart from one short walk at the beginning of the week. And we had a cock up with the grocery order too so I had very little fresh fruit & veg, and no means of getting out to buy more. And I was flooded with sweet treats from Hubby and my sons yesterday for Valentines - and I pigged out a bit yesterday. I even had a glass of wine, something I haven't done in YEARS with the whole trying to get pregnant, being pregnant, and breastfeeding thing I've been doing for around 7-8 years. In truth I am glad it's not MORE than 1lb because I fully expected a 2lb gain, although I am sad not to have lost. 
Hubby has lost 2lb though which is brilliant. He didn't expect to have lost at all, but he's been out walking at work in the cold and it does have an impact.

I'm a little worried about how I am going to get my Fitbit steps in next week. The kids are off school for the Half Term Holidays. My eldest would happily walk with me, my youngest is still happy in the sling... but my 4 yo is lazy and my 2 yo isn't exactly capable of long walks (and won't use the pushchair any more). So my expectations are not high. I will have to work doubly hard once they go back to school next Tuesday.

Weigh In:
  • Me: +1 lb
  • Hubby: -2 lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 59 lb
  • Could have been MUCH worse!

Things I have learned this week:
  • I really need my exercise - and I miss it when I don't get it.
  • Not having as much fruit and veg in for a week made a massive (and rubbish) difference to my well being
  • I already knew this but this week has reinforced it: My "diet" is going to have to be a forever way of life or I am just going to gain all my weight back. One week of little exercise and poor diet and I have gained weight, lost sleep, and felt my mood dip.


Targets for this week:
  • Try to get some exercise in with the kids
  • Make sure I eat well
  • Focus on not gaining again this week.

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

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
