Weigh in #29

It is astounding what can change in the space of a week. Shortly after I made my first post on 2016 we got word that my mother-in-law had been rushed to hospital. The day after we were told we had to get over to see her urgently. We went, and it is my great sorrow to say that she left us on the morning of the 3rd.

This blog is not the place for me to talk about her, or the affect this had had on our family, but she will be greatly missed.

Food has not been on the forefront of our minds, and we have not felt in the mood for cooking or exercising, so this week has been a bit of a non-starter. I suspect it wont be a big concern for the rest of the month. But I will try to keep up with everything on here.

Weigh In:
  • Me: 183 lb (13 stone 1lb), a gain if 15lb since my last official weigh in back in September.
  • Hubby: 248.8 lb (17 stone 10.8 lb)
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 35 lb (formerly 50lb!)
  • New Year, New Start (but gently does it)


Things I have learned this week:
  • My diet is not the most important thing in my life. My family is.
  • It is important to take better care of my self - not for me but for my kids & hubby.
  • 2016 is rubbish!

Targets for this week:
  • Avoid wallowing in junk food
  • Get motivated to cook again - no more living of take-away's
  • Increase my fluids (always.... always this!)



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 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…
