Saturday 31st August, 2013


Had an unexpected lunch out today, but don't think I did too bad considering. And the cookie dough cheesecake was A.MAZE.ING!

I made up for it with tea (though perhaps could have done without the Pot of Joy, however Joyous it was!)

Back to being a WW angel from tomorrow!

Plan for the rest of the week - fruit/cereal/crumpets for breakfasts, salads for lunches, and teas :

Sunday - Sausage Casserole
Monday - Square Wrap Pizza
Tuesday - Reggae Reggae Jambalaya
Wednesday - BBQ Ribs, Golden Veg Rice and COTC

And to bloody well behave!!

Thursday 29th August, 2013

*NOTE - herbs/spices measurements are inaccurate - the mixture was made up in bulk, with varying measurements for each ingredient. I have entered the minimum measurement for each ingredient simply for the purpose of tracking everything*

An awful nights sleep was had by all last night, as bubs has a throat infection so was coughing constantly. He ended up in our bed before 3am and then I was getting kicked as well as woken up by the coughing! Then at 7.30 this morning, the neighbours very kindly started HAMMERING! 

After about an hour they stopped, and me and bubs managed to fall back to sleep, waking again at around 10.15. 
Within a minute of opening my eyes, my mobile rings with just a local number on the screen, so my half-asleep mind instantly thinks HOSPITAL - MUM!

I answer the phone with a mix of sleep and dread, to be greeted by the DJ's from my local radio breakfast show?! and now I'm gonna sound a total KNOB on the radio tomorrow! (I'm assuming it will be played tomorrow)

Got up, mooched about, had some brekkie, made a salad ready to take for lunch, got ready and waited for my mum to call to let me know when to go get her, then made my way to the hospital to give her a lift home. 
The traffic was RIDICULOUS, just cos of some piddly little roadworks!! Seriously I can't go ANYWHERE at the moment without coming across ROADWORKS!! Are there even that many workmen in the world, or are they working each site in shifts?! Crazyness!
So I collect my mum - EVENTUALLY - and notice the engine of my car is having a fit. Mum tells me to keep an eye on the temp gauge, and sure enough, on the way back to my Mum's the temp skyrockets and the engine overheats!

Luckily, Mum knows a man that can, so we took it along and get it looked at, and the verdict : no water in the radiator and some kind of hose (connected to the radiator) is ker-nackered! Had to leave it there and walk back! 

In the RAIN - just to top it all off!!

Hopefully it will be fixed by tomorrow! I hate not having the option of my car, even when I have nowhere to go! 

We ended up staying at mum's for tea but LUCKILY I had taken along all the ingredients for my planned tea, as I had decided to be a good wifey and get all the preparation done while I was babysitting her for the afternoon, and then it would be done ready for when hubby got home! So I ended up doubling up and cooking for my Mum and Stepdad, and I think we all enjoyed it! (The Hairy Dieters Cajun Chicken with Wedges and Chive Dip)

Got a lift home and was back late and so now I'm off to bed for what I'm sure will be another uncomfortable nights sleep!

I didn't plan to have 6 dailies remaining, and I'm not sure that's actually EVER happened - but hey ho, things happen, and I doubt it'll happen again any time soon!

On a positive note :

Tali : 1, Banana's Nil :o)

Nighty night! xx

Tuesday 27th August, 2013

Had another good week, but lost my way a little since yesterday. I need weigh in to happen so I can draw another line and get back onto it!

Evil SP's have me at another gain, which I think has added to my already-peed-off-about-last-weeks-weigh-in-result mood and snuck in amongst my determination to throw me off track.

At Tettenhall class tonight, a member was saying that his loss this week was down to cutting out bananas ... which got me thinking.

I have once before cut my banana's after decided they were hindering my losses. I decided not to cut them out entirely, but to instead limit myself to just one kid-sized-portion banana per day.

This had not-so-recently become the normal - much larger - sized bananas, and within the last couple weeks has become 2-3 per day!

Sounds to me like this could well be a major factor!!

So this week I am back on the mini bananas, and 1 per day MAX, if any!

I have also bought some salad stuff for lunches (I am quite limited on my salad veg, but have bought lettuce, cucumber and spring onion, and a honey-mustard dressing which I am looking forward to tomorrow! All the subway's I have had recently have given me the taste! nom nom nom :)

So, I'll get tomorrow out the way (being as well behaved as possible now that hubby is back at work and it's back to normality), face up to whatever weigh in brings and then straight back onto it again - sans bananas!

after all - what else can I do...

... Give up altogether??

Wednesday 21st August, 2013 - WEIGH IN

I didn't track after this

I went swimming today with hubs and bubs, and we had a lovely afternoon ❤

I guess I had lunch a bit late - compared to a normal wi day - and it was probably a little heavy but I was really disappointed at weigh in tonight!

After such a good week, and on a week that I could have easily gone SO off track.

To have only used 25 of my weeklies, and with all the walking I have done too
(Friday - delivering leaflets, Saturday - Trentham Gardens, Sunday - delivering leaflets, Monday - the zoo, Tuesday - delivering leaflets)

Plus taking my own lunches on my days out, resisting temptations, AND the swimming today -

a 1½lb gain was a real kick in the teeth!! :(

The only thing I can think is that the late/heavy lunch was weighing me down, and perhaps the increase in exercise has thrown my body out. But even so.

POOP!!! :(
