Weigh In #26

At first I thought I had stayed the same this week. In fact I went on my Facebook group and said as much. But once I sat down with my chomebook and started to record my weight on all my little apps and stuff it turns out I did actually lose 1lb! So.. WHOOO! I'm finding it all too easy to think "just 1lb!" so I am dragging out this image from a previous post. It's probably not the last time you see this picture on my blog! Sure, I wish it was more, but a loss is a loss, and after gains and no changes it's brilliant! It's kick started my motivation to get moving again. I'm planning a good walk each day Mon-Fri this week, and to cram in as many steps as I can while the kids are swimming on Sat morning (I get 25 mins max!)
I have ordered a smoothie maker to accompany my juicer. The blender I have been using is part of my ma-hoooo-sive food processor and not really ideal for the job. My smoothie maker looks awesome. It's by the same people as my juicer (which I am using daily and the kids love it too) so I'm hoping it will be every bit as good.

I'm worried about poor Hubby though. He thinks he has hit his mental wall.... He is wavering around 17 stone (just as I have around 11 stone 5) and thinks that "this is it" for him. I really want to keep him motivated but he's having none of it. I'm sticking to making healthy meals for us all as a family, but he eats what he wants when he's at work, and he's been raiding the fridge for the sandwich stuff we have in for the kids school lunches. He shrugs me off when I try to talk to him about it too. He has his next hospital appointment in a little over a week. I'm hoping they will comment on his loss so far and encourage him to carry on!

Weigh In:
  • Me: -1 lb
  • Hubby: +1
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 59 lb
  • Losing again, phew!

Things I have learned this week:
  • Never give up!
  • I need to keep on moving, at least 4 days a week
  • This is so much harder on my own - I need Hubs back on track!

Targets for this week:
  • Another loss
  • At least 4 days out walking
  • Keep up the fluids (juice, smoothies, water)



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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
