Weigh in

This is a toofer. Two for one.

I kinda forgot to update last week. Putting on a pound and a half will do that to a person. Yeah, after going out for dinner on the Friday night and drinking rather a lot, I just couldn't get it together and then on the Tuesday I ended up baking a cake, slathering it in raspberry and coconut cream cheese icing, and then eating half of it. Yes, half. I know. WTF?

BUT.... redemption awaits. Doesn't it always? I got my head back in the game and had a great week, involving two buggy runs. Goodbye 2.5 pounds this week.

This means, I have FINALLY lost a stone this year (phew!)  and am just 5 measly pounds away from my pre preggo weight. Ooh and ft. That's ooft.

I'm feeling stronger. The runs are getting faster and I do feel the difference in my clothes. I'm sure lugging a 20lb baby up and down the stairs several times a day must be helping.

Challenges lie ahead though.... 2 nights in Ireland for a weddings before next weight in. Then away with the folks and my brother's family for 4 nights for my mum's 60th, the following week.

I did manage to go to the actual gym though yesterday and there is also a gym in the hotel we are staying in for the wedding so I'm taking my gym kit in the hope I can convince myself to squeeze in a quick workout. 

Current weight:        13 stone 2lbs
This week:                - 2lbs

2016 total:                 14.75lbs

Pre preg weight:      12stone 11lbs

Weigh in

Yipeeee! Half a pound off. Very VERY happy with that.

It's not been a perfect week. There was cake. There were toffees. Let's just leave it at that shall we and enjoy a loss.

Just a quarter of a pound more off and I'll have lost a stone this year.

I've got two more weigh ins until we go to a wedding in Ireland. I would LOVE to be in the 12s for that. That means I need to lose 3.25lbs in two week. Totally do-able but there can be no excuses, nibbles or general faffing.

In other news... I have potential new biz coming out my ears! Excellent position to be in but there are not enough hours in the day. Haven't been to the gym for WEEKS. I'm gonna power walk to mother and toddlers tomorrow. Gotta do what you can, when you can.

Current weight:        13 stone 3lbs
This week:                - 0.5lbs

2016 total:                 13.75lbs

Pre preg weight:      12stone 11lbs

There was a loss this week, which comes as no surprise.

3lbs off. I'm very happy with that! Well, happy that I lost a good chunk but happy that it wasn't any more than that as I feel like I could keep that three pounds off this week, and maybe lose a wee bit more.

Who the hell knows how it will all pan out but I am doing my utmost to keep this downward trajectory going. I'd LOVE it if I could lose 3/4 of a pound which would take me to a stone off this year.

Numbers aside, for the first time since I gave birth (and for a long time before) I feel like I am getting back to looking like me. Once I get into the lower 13 stones my shape changes a bit and this is where I feel good. I feel even better weighing less than this OBVS but I feel like I've finally shifted the weight that makes me feel like a frump.

Been for a 5k run today. My time was exactly the same as last week but I felt a LOT slower. Not too much other exercise planned so will really need watch what goes my gob.

Current weight:        13 stone 3.5lbs
This week:                - 3lbs

2016 total:                 13.25lbs

More good than bad

So much has happened in the past week.

First the good stuff...
  • Two new clients. Horay! Very excited and happy about this. I can do it ALL!
  • Met up with a gorgeous red head for lunch on Friday who is just a total peach
  • Went for a 7km walk along the beach with little miss strapped to my person. Yup, that beach above is on my doorstep.
  • Penelope was 9 months old and has started crawling (not sure the crawling is to be celebrated as mischief ensues)
  • Had an amusing trip to the vet with poor Hoover on the lower (slightly angled) deck
  • Went for a 5k run with the buggy.

Then there was the not so good...
  • Lover boy was away on four night stag. He was away on a different stag the weekend before. He is away for something else this weekend. I'm trying to be zen about it but am failing miserably.
  • Penelope was unwell on Saturday night. Nothing like having to change sheets in the middle of the night to really make you feel like an actual parent. Illness progressed into the other end on Sunday. Jesus CHRIST.
  • Illness progressed into me on Monday and I spent the day with my head down the toilet. Cannot remember the last time I was that ill without it being drink induced. I actually had to phone my Mother in Law to come and get Penelope I was that bad. And then when TB got home he was hit with an emotional onslaught from me. Very emotional thanks to being ill. Of course, from the first heave,  I was thinking "oooh, this might help shift a pound". Haha! I wish I was I was joking but it's so true. I'm eating, but not much so weigh day tomorrow will be interesting.
