Weigh In #25

I am rubbish at school holidays, I really am. This week has been another rough week with a 1lb gain. I've had no car this week (MOT & Service resulted in an expensive part needing to be shipped in) so taking the kids any great distance has been a no-no, and the weather has been awful too so there was little chance of trying to drag them out walking (esp the 2yo & 4yo). In fact we wound up staying in pretty much all week with one trip to a local park (on a freeeeeezing cold day) and one trip to an indoor play area.

We have also enjoyed Pancake Day... with masses of pancakes; some with cheese and ham, some with chocolate and fruit. Not ideal for slimming.

I knew in advance that this would be a hard week though so I have been working on damage limitation. The juicer has been put through it's paces. Even the kids are enjoying the results of my juicing and pinterest addiction (I'll be buying a smoothie maker next). All in all I think a 1lb gain isn't too bad. I was expecting 2-3lb gain. Hubby stayed the same - and he wasn't expecting that either.

Just one more day of holidays left though, and Hubby is home tomorrow too so I am off walking all week if I can. I want to get my steps in, keep juicing and souping and hopefully next week I can lose something. A 1lb gain might not be so bad, but it is two weeks in a row and that has to stop now. I had planned to lose a stone by Easter and now that's looking doubtful. I'm still going for a minimum 7lb loss (9lb now) and I will count anything over that a real bonus.

Someone said to me that my weight loss looked to have "plateaued" and at the same point as last time (before my wedding), but it's not leveled out for no reason. I am secumbing to temptation more easily, using holidays as an excuse to slack off. And I need to get going again! Some one KICK ME back into the Weight Loss Game please!

Weigh In:
  • Me: +1 lb
  • Hubby: STS
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 58 lb
  • Argh! 2lb gain in two weeks!

Things I have learned this week:
  • It would be really easy to pack all this in right now and gain all my weight back
  • I lost my will power to continue at this same point (weight) last time I tried to get healthy - I need to get past this!
  • I need to get my head back into this!

Targets for this week:
  • Juicing & Souping through the day, proper dinners in the evening. NO MORE JUNK MEALS!
  • Walk 3-4 miles at least 3-4 days this week
  • LOSE! Even if it's just 1lb!

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
