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 one of thos…

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

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…
