Working in the Steps!

It's been a busy week! I have really dragged myself about to get my Fitbit steps in!

For ages I've been saying that having the kids and them being young and dependant was the reason I don't get much exercise. And in truth it does prevent me from getting to a gym on a regular basis and so on. But that's not the case anymore. I'm walking. Walking LOADS! And a lot of it is with the kids or while doing something for the kids. Parenting vs Guilt (for spending my time on myself) all round WIN!

Helping out at Beavers on Monday, work on Tuesday followed by the Scouts committee meeting, challenging myself to a Wii Fit step-a-thon on Wednesday while the kids were out/napping, working Thusday and then dragging myself off out for an hours walk after the kids had gone to bed, and repeating that today just to hit my step targets with added yomp around the sport centre while taking Jack swimming (because they've started the re-fit the closed the main entrance)... Tomorrow I'm planning to up my steps by taking 3 of the kids to town after more swimming lessons - they are in urgent need of footwear for next weeks scout camp - and possibly buying a new bike for Jack so we can hand his small one over to Tom.

Oh and I seem to have volunteered to be a driver for the Cubs sailing trip on Sunday too so I imagine there will be plenty of opportunity to get walking then too (don't think I'll get dragged into a boat!)

Along with all this walking about I have also stuck to my Weight Watchers Smart Points like a Pro! Most days I have hit my points bang on. I've only had 6 weeklies and haven't touched my fitpoints!

If I haven't lost weight by my weigh in on Sunday I'll be calling shinanigans!

I need to start recording my measurements too though. Because I've learned that on weeks that you do really well but don't lose weight, you've usually lost inches instead! And that's fine with me!

I'm still feeling massively motivated, so I'm enjoying any boost this gives me (coz I'll run out of steam eventually).



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.

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…
