Weight In #28



So I'm back. A combination of struggling to get into a good walking routine now I am working again, unseasonal depression (I'm not normally depressed in the lighter months but I have been feeling terrible since Freddie stopped breastfeeding - doctor thinks it may be a form of postnatal depression rather than my normal SAD), and allowing myself to slip considerably during the summer holidays has all taken it's toll. During the summer I have gone up from 152 lb to 171 lb. I was shocked by the figure on the scales, but if I am honest I am not totally surprised. 

In the last two weeks I have changed what I am eating though the day. I have ditched the heavily bread based lunched for Subway's Salad Of The Day when I am working, and trying hard to curb my nibbling while I am home. Hubby suggested that the kids had school dinners this half term, which means I am not stocking the house with the treats I bought "for them", so I cannot scoff those. We are struggling to balance that out with light, healthy dinners, but we will iron that out as we go along. My depression means that I am struggling to find inspiration and motivation in the kitchen. But I am trying.

This week I managed a 4 mile walk with Freddie in the sling - it was hard work now that he is over a year old and much heavier than when I started out doing this. Hopefully it's made a difference.

In recent weeks I have been revamping my wardrobe with some beautiful Lindy Bop vintage style dresses, and a few fun dresses from Hell Bunny too. I am loving my new slimmer figure, and treating myself to things that flatter my new shape. I am determined that the only way these stop fitting is by them being too big and needing a smaller size! One of my best weeks this summer was when I discovered that the XXLs and size 18s I have been trying to buy are actually far too big! Long may it continue! 

So this is my first weigh in of my new weight loss drive. My last weigh in back in March (wow.... so long ago!)

Weigh In:
  • Me: 168 lb (12 stone dead on), a loss of 3 lb since I started again last week
  • Hubby: ??
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 50 lb
  • It's been up and down over the summer, but this is a fresh start!


Things I have learned this week:
  • It's easier than I thought to start again
  • I have found the determination to lose what I gained in the summer
  • Having pretty new things is actually helping my motivation (and I don't care if that's shallow!)

Targets for this week:
  • A loss... ANY loss!
  • Get out walking - not easy now I'm back at work
  • Watch my fluids - DRINK instead of SNACK!

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'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…

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
