Week So Far

Im trying to make an effort to blog more often! Going well so far this week.

I always work out on a Sunday night my average daily steps for the week, ie total steps divided by 7. This week I actually, finally managed to average over 10,000 steps per day, and thats without wearing my pedometer on Thursday, if i'd worn it then i'd have been well over 11 or 12,000 (Doh!)

On Saturday hubby and I took the 2 youngest ones to Hollingworth Lake (thats my 3rd time in less than a week! It is a lovely place though!). We walked round once (approx 1.5 miles), but then I had to stop cos i was wearing daft shoes (doh again!)

On Sunday, i made up for it by going for a walk, approx 9km, so over 5.5 miles. Very pleased with myself, but im feeling it today! My hips are quite sore, which isnt good considering I am doing a 10k Race For Life in 12 days, Im going to need to try to get out most days this week and next for a good walk every day.

Today, I spent 1.5 hours ironing, then 3 hours sorting out the childrens rooms, which were a disgrace, so it kept me on the move. I then didnt have time to go walking as I had to pick the children up, so had a quick 30 mins on the Wii Fit.

Day off tomorrow, (as was today!), but I intend to spend it on time for ME! Im planning a walk, help my hips get used to it. Then chilling out, relaxing bath and reading for a while. Might even dye my hair :)

Weigh In And Other Bits

Weigh in yesterday - another 1.5lbs gone :) I should have got a silver 7 last week so i got it this week instead.

I've now lost 7st 9lbs, which is the same weight as my 10 year old daughter! Ive tried lifting her and cant shift her off the ground, so how i used to get around lugging all that weight with me I have no idea! Well i do - with difficulty and pain and breathlessness!

My mum lost another 2lbs this week, so has now lost 10lbs and is doing well!

I felt I had a really good week this week. I have been eating lots and lots more veg with my meals to bulk them out more. I still eat quite a lot of snack type things (ie WWers biscuits and things), which i want to get used to cutting out for when my points really drop. So im getting used to more veg! And i have to say enjoying it! Only thing is, my insides are like a wind turbine! OMG the farting!! Ive been tempted to move my desk into the corridor at work just in case, but so far i've managed not to let any escape while at work!! All the ass clenching must be firming my bum up a treat!

Ive also done a lot of walking this week, getting 10000+ on my pedometer in aerobic mode on 3 days! Ive been drinking water too, lots more than normal.

TOTM is looming so we'll see how that goes over the next week, and bring on another good week!!

Early Weigh In!

Ok, so last week i didnt have an official weigh in, as i couldn't make the meeting due to doing my bridesmaid bit! I did get weighed on Wednesday though, at Boots and was 15st on the dot! Thus a 1lb loss from the week before.

I cant make official weigh in again this week as my daughter is singing in her school choir at a local music festival, so my mum and i went to a different meeting - meaning weigh in was a whole day and a half earlier than usual! Anyways, my mum lost 1lb, total now 8lbs in 4 weeks, and I weighed in at 14 st 13.5lbs! So half a pound down from last week and 1.5 lbs down from last "official" weigh in nearly 2 weeks ago!

Im very pleased with that result - i had 2 days totally off plan last Thursday and Friday. Thursday night i had a chinese takeaway, and lots of nibbles, not to mention orange juice and champagne. Then Friday, it was bacon butties followed by strawberries and champagne, then a chicken dinner with apple pie and ice cream dessert, and i lost track at the buffet, and with alcohol - i drank white wine and soda all day.

So - woop woop to being in the 14s!! Bring on the 13s!!

Been to weigh in. Its all good, lost 4lbs! I dont know how or where its gone but i'll take it! Although i know it probably means i'll gain or sts next week, but hey ho, thats the name of the game on this journey!

I got my 100lb certificate tonight, so that was good. Also my mum has joined weightwatchers and it was nice to hear her say how proud she is of me! She lost 4lbs last week and 2lbs this week, so is chuffed with herself, although she's not overly impressed that i weigh less than her!! I think that was what finally spurred her on to join, as I have never been lighter than her before.
I went and picked up the dress today, it looks lovely, and i cant wait for next Friday now - only 8 more sleeps!!
Piccie of me with my certificate! Im going to have it as my new current pic too!
