Think I ate too many grapes again today... (I ate pretty much a whole punnet yesterday).
 But I suppose at least that's better than too much junk.

Didn't get out for a walk today either :o( Felt a bit pleh today. Just CBA.

Hubby's off at the weekend tho and the weather is meant to stay L.O.V.E.L.Y (can you believe it's OCTOBER tomorrow?!) so gonna have him drag me out the house for a nice long walk :o)

Got to eat less rubbish too. Getting out the house will help with that I'm sure :)

Looks like I miscounted by 1pp yesterday but hey ho, that was last week - fresh start today - everything counted and I walked to the shops and back (pushing cubs in pushchair) to get me off my bum :o)

I've not hit healthy, but I'm gonna wear my pedometer as much as possible this week to see more accurately my lack of exercise. I think it may be depressingly bad ... eek.

I munched too much today though. And i didn't wear my braces :o(

Bad Bad Bad

GOTTA SORT IT OUT!!!

30 Days of Blogs - Day 12 - How You Found Out About This Blog Site And Why You Made One

I've read a few blogs - the very best of which are in my Right Sidebar :o) - and liked the look of the Blogger site the most.

I tried to blog last year about my braces, I think I published 2 posts and that was it lol.

I decided to start this blog to spur me on to goal. Only having 10lbs to lose and having been on plan for 19 months (at the time of starting the blog)  I figured publicising my trackers would help greatly to encourage me to eat better.

I think it has, but my lack of exercise is probably the biggest factor now of my slow losses.

But I AM losing - and I know it'll be more maintainable this way, as I'm not one to slave away in the gym on a daily, (or even weekly, a lot of the time) basis.

I'll walk where I can.

I'll run around after my son.

I'll enjoy my life.

And i WILL get to goal

I actually feel quite gross that I ate my entire days points in one meal (Dinner)

Yuck -_-

WEIGH IN RESULT - I LOST A HAPPY 1/2LB :o)


In an ideal world, I would have liked to have lost 1lb to get me back on track for the Christmas Countdown, but since this isn't an ideal world, I'm very happy with my half lb :o)

At the end of the day, it's going in the right direction (i.e. DOWN), and I am now the lightest I have been this time around.

Also I am now only 1lb from a 'healthy BMI' weight, and back down to my wedding weight - so that can't be bad can it!!

YAY - GO ME!

London was FAB!
Everyone was lovely and I had a great time.
So glad I went :o)

AND I earned 5AP :o)
Walked a total of 17,060 steps, 7.1 miles!



30 Days of Blogs - Day 8 - Short Term Goals for This Month and Why

1. To pass this Choccie Challenge. I've read that if you do something every day for a month it becomes habit (...?) so that would be good :o)

2. On a non WW related level - I would say to do something out of the ordinary for me, something of a challenge in terms of my social anxiety.


I think my trip to London (today - coincidentally), to meet with people I have never met, fits this criteria extremely well.

I have been to London only on a few occasions, and none of those in the last 5 years.

So it is unfamiliar surroundings, and unfamiliar people (thought not saying they are not all lovely!)

Hubby is a GEM and is journeying there and back with me, but he will be toddling off with his friend to do a bit of shopping and mooching, so the majority of my day will be spent with the unfamiliar.

But it'll be really good for me ... and I'll be SHOPPiNG! so it can't be that bad - can it! ;o)

Went shopping for some new shoes for Bubs today, and we stopped at a little Cafe for lunch.

I had a "Bacon & Cheese Melt" - it was on Wholemeal Sliced Bread, Toasted, with - from what I could see - Bacon, Onion, the TINIEST amount of cheese known to man, and Tomato.

It felt and tasted quite oily, but as Bubs had some of it too (I figured it would save me some points) I counted 4 for the bread, 4 for the Bacon, 1 for the Cheese and 1 for the Oil

...PLEASE let me know if you think this is too low - though I'm not fussed if it's too high as I'd rather overestimate :o)

As for this evening - i figured the WW strawberry meringue doesn't count as 'naughty' ... a) because it was WW! and b) because it's a CHOCCIE challenge.

I just felt like a treat today :o) YUM

5/5 choccie points eaten today. <3 MMMMMM TWIRL <3


Off to London for the day tomorrow to meet up with some fabulous Peeps and spend some moolah :o) (EE I'm excited!)

And I WILL behave with my food.

I'll have 29dailies + 38weeklies if I need them, so I have no reason to panic.

:o)

Lessons learnt today :

  1. Heinz Reduced Salt & Sugar Beans are the same PP as normal Heinz Beans
  2. Braces HURT
I had to go back to the orthodontist today as my brace wasn't fitting properly (it's a removable, 'invisible' version called Invisalign), and it ended with me going back SEVEN aligners to one that fits.
All I can say is OUCH!!!!

I'm just GLAD it was only the top aligner that had to change, cos I would be sucking soup through a straw if it had been both!

Oh the PAIN :o(

I suppose every cloud has a silver lining tho - I am going to start wearing it properly again (i.e. as close to 20 hours a day as possible) which means I can't pick between meals!

Still managed my chocolate tonight though! 
Although a curly wurly was completely out of the question, I enjoyed my twirl nonetheless ;o)

Stuck to the choccie challenge again too - just 3/5pp used.

REALLY feeling positive that the Choccie Challenge + Braces + better weigh in day lunch choice will = a FAB weigh in result this week :o)

WEIGH IN RESULT -    STS


I felt pretty good about weigh in, but thought that my heavy lunch would probably have a negative effect on it, and I think I was right.

Also, I think I may have eaten too many bananas this week too.

And I did go over my Choccie Challenge points tonight after WI.
I had the bourbon biscuit at lunch, and then the Snickers and the Maltesers tonight.
But it was my WI night treat and I reckon I've been a bit blooming' good all week so I'm happy!

New week, Fresh Start tomorrow morning!

So plan for next week -

LESS bananas
MORE walking
LIGHTER lunch on Wednesday
CONTINUE with the Choccie Challenge (though this is more off my own back this week)
GYM Once
PLAN my meals
DRINK more Water

I think that'll do :o)

:oD

30 Days of Blogs - Day 5 - A Picture of Somewhere You've Been To

Sorrento - Italy

For our Honeymoon, Hubby and I visited Sorrento in Italy.

It was absolutely beautiful. The best holiday I've ever been on.

We visited Pompeii, and climbed Vesuvius. And this is just one of the stunning views from our hotel

--------

I know I'm only supposed to post one photo, but since it is technically the same 'place'...

This was the view from out hotel room :

Far Left - Mount Vesuvius. Centre distance - Naples. Far Right foreground - Sorrento

I'm happy and confident for weigh in tomorrow, though I'm sure the usual nerves will set in tomorrow afternoon!

30 Days of Blogs - Day 4 - A Habit You Wish You Didn't Have

Hmmm... A difficult one.

I have a few.

I suppose my main one would be shutting myself away from the world.
I feel so uncomfortable in new and/or social situations, and since November, I hate going places on my own - especially on my own with my son.

When I was mugged, I wasn't touched. I wasn't harmed in any way. And I didn't even lose anything of value (they got my headphones, but were after my phone. Typical, paranoid me had - 30 seconds earlier - tucked it into my waistband for the fear that this young boy was eyeing it up. Funny that...)

But the worst feeling in the world, was what COULD have happened to my Son. And I don't EVER want to feel like that again.

I hate the thought that I might pass these ridiculous paranoias onto him.

And it's GOT TO change.

Stayed around 45 mins or so and I only went on the treadmill, but I walked just under 2 miles and reached Earning mode, so I'm happy.

Then, through just general walking, housework etc I managed to earn 2 AP's!

Just had a treat size twirl today, so just the 3 choccie points eaten :o)

More sweet things eaten today.
Met my Choccie Challenge Limit, and tagged on a fab ice lolly which I was VERY surprised and happy to find are only 2pp!! :o) YUM!

I feel like I've eaten SOOO much today though - especially looking at it as a list above.
Lots of fruit and veg!

We went walking too - I decided we'd go to Baggeridge Park, as we've never been but had heard nice things.
It was LOVELY. so pretty.






It's just a shame our walk was slow (baby-paced) and ended after half an hour when said Baby fell into a Mud Puddle. Yuck.

So we left early, and popped home for a fresh pair of trousers, and then popped to Sainsbury's to buy a couple things for tea.
By the time I was back home, in the kitchen, cooking it, my pedometer had beeped over to Earning mode!
I'm quite surprised I managed it today as I don't feel like I've done that much!

I doubt I will earn any AP by the time I go to bed, but I've done better than yesterday, and there's always tomorrow and my promised Gym visit!

TOTAL STEPS : 7166 Healthy level reached but no AP earned

I feel really quite good with myself today :o)
I even went and got some treat size Twirls and Maltesers (3pp each) to save on points (multipack twirl is 5pp, and I'm not really gonna eat just the one stick, am I?

I've not been out walking, apart from popping to the shops, so no activity done today.

I am going to go to the gym either tomorrow or sunday,
and will go out walking with hubby and bubs on whichever day I don't gym it.

Really happy that I have managed to undercut the challenge the last 2 days by only eating 3pp of choccie :o)
I know it'll be better for me, and I have been quite lucky, really, to have continued to lose on the amount that I was eating I think.
Though it has slowed it a lot.

But I'm determined to be at Goal for christmas.

WEIGH IN RESULT : 1/2lb OFF!


I felt really heavy today. And a SP yesterday didn't look good. And then this afternoon I kept picking, when normally I don't eat or drink anything after 2pm.
So I wasn't expecting much, but ever the optimist, stepped onto the scales hopeful ... and lost a happy half! :o)


YAYYY :oD


Am now back to 40lb total loss, and am hoping that my chocolate challenge that Cayla has set will help me get to my healthy BMI weight next week.


Going to Plan the week's meals tomorrow, and factor in my 5pp of sweet treats each day.
Plan to walk more.
Plan to have a day out with Hubby and Bubs at the weekend. Lots of walking, and something different for a change.


PLAN : TO HAVE A FAB WEEK

Had an AWWWWWWFUL food day today.

Spent the whoooole day cleaning the house and entertaining Nico and just couldn't decide on anything at lunch time - didn't feel like anything in particular - so I just NIBBLED.

Felt horrible by the time I climbed into bed.

Moral of the story : EAT REAL FOOD!

1LB OFF at weigh in :o)

Wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't had any sneaky peaks this week. Shocker!

WILL do the same next week!

Christmas Countdown Challenge was given out this week at the meeting - 16 weigh in's left before Christmas and we all had to write down a realistic amount of weight we would like to lose by then.

I set mine as realistic as I could, and decided to aim for 1/2lb per week - making the total loss 8lb by Christmas.

Coincidentally - with my 1lb loss from this week leaving me at 10st 8lb, that makes my Christmas target GOAL!

So. 1/2lb per week - average. 

Challenge starts.....
