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).

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
