Yip NEGLECT that's what i've been doing to my blog - neglecting it.

After my weekend away at the wedding, my hubbys birthday and my birthday i put on 4lb!!!! What can I say ............ at least I didn't stay the same lol :)

Well at least I can laugh about it and I definately enjoyed it. I've been back on track since last week and I lost 2lb when I weighed in on saturday so i'm aiming to get the other 2lb off asap!

I've got a party on Sept 11th and I'm aiming for 7lbs off so fingers crossed i'll do it.

The kids are back at school on Wednesday and I am soooo looking forward to getting back into a routine and hopefully helping boosting the weightloss again.
I'm trying to work out what week i'm on and think i've got mixed up somewhere, i'm sure Week 26 was holiday - then Week 27 gained 4lbs - then Week 28 lost 2lbs. So next week must be Wk 29.

Jeeeeezzzzzo it is coming off slowly :O

WI Week 22, 23 & 24

well i have stayed the same weight for sooooo long now that i'm ready to scream out loud :(
i know, i know, everyone keeps saying at least your not gaining but for fecks sake not even 1 lb off!
i have tried varying food, fast start and different excercises and the only thing i can think of now is jacking it all in . . . . . . .
ok no i'm not going to jack it but what do i do next!
i'm away next weekend and i am taking a holiday week. i am going to stick to the plan as much as poss and i'll be home on sunday so i'm thinking of doing the wendie plan that week and fingers crossed booting my metabolism right back into touch and maybe even getting a loss :)

WI Week 20 & 21

man alive i've no been on for ages, life just seems to be so hectic and busy all the time!
i've not been on 5+ board or anything, i just seem to get up in the morning, rush around then fall into bed at night.

yip and now it's the summer holidays so kids all day - hectic hectic hectic lol
if i hear once more "I'M BORED" i think i'll scream. i mean they've not even been off a full week yet :O

this weekend coming we're going camping hahahahaha ME CAMPING!!!! do they have en-suite loos in a tent i said to ma billy?? oh yeah was the reply - A BUCKET lol
never mind it's for the kids! we go on friday, (weather report says rain!!) but it's not far just to perthshire we are borrowing my aunts 9 man tent and she's got all the gear to go with it :)
i asked the woman when we booked what time we could arrive and she said from 12 noon. yip we'll be there at 12 noon to get the thing up before darkness falls hahaha.
list of things to pack includes, shorts, t-shirts, hats, suncream, wellies & rain coats. pretty much covers it ;)
camping for me in the past has always been T in the Park, so take away the smelly loos, loud music and random drunk people peeing on tents and it will be fab.

at the end of this month i am going to a wedding in aberdeen and i've booked the best suite in the hotel with it's own patio doors out into the gardens so if it's lashing with rain while in the tent i will close my eyes and think of that lol

anyways no much change with the weight, on week 20 i put on 1lb and then in week 21 i lost it again!

3 weeks on friday until the wedding so after the camping trip i am going to be on my bestest ever behaviour and try and get another 7lbs off and make it to my 2st - fingers crossed :)

WI Week 17

gained 2lbs :/ mmm a bit less than i expeceted so not so bad.
i have been a bad girl lol

going to try my hardest this week to get the 2lb off i've gained and then be back to 2lb until 10%. if only i'd been good i'd be there already but hey ho that's how it goes ;)

Tuesday, 2 June 2009

Ohhh Dear........

Jeeeeezzzooooo my weeks going from bad to worse :(

After my sts on saturday I have just went from bad to worse, ma billys away working this week and i've been super good during the day but in the evenings i've ate my body weight (quite a lot) in junk!

Boredom that's what it is pure boredom!

Hopefully he might be coming back tomorrow and therefore help get me back on the straight and narrow and if he doesn't i'm gonna have to zip my mouth shut - if only!!

You know I feel total crap tonight and it's because i've been eating total crap but does it stop me NO IT DOESNAE!!!

I think this week will surely be a gain, let's just pray it's not a HUGE gain!

Monday, 1 June 2009

WI Week 16

I stayed the same this week! I am very pleased as it could have been a gain.

problem is ~ on saturday I got a bit pissed and was drinking lager and eating all sorts of crap mmmm

sunday we were away out all day and i had the hangover munchies and ate just a bit too much.

lecture to myself - MANDY, YOU HAVE 2LBS UNTIL 10% GOAL- DON'T EFF THIS UP!!!!
a wee pic of me and my friends, sheryll and amanda (getting a bit tipsy lol

Wednesday, 27 May 2009

I've been a bad girl :(

yesterday was my sons birthday party at a new play area and I had every intention of being a very good girl and sticking to my points. well i failed! it all started when we left the house at 9.30am and i hadn't had breakfast ~ bad move! i got to the place and they did breakfasts and yip i had one! sausages, bacon, egg, black pudding, mushrooms, toast & tea and i bet there wasn't a can of fry light in sight!
don't even know the points that was in all that and i'm not even gonna count.
afterwards i ate rubbish all day, didn't have a lunch or dinner just junk. biscuits, crisps, chocolate, cake pretty much anything that was in my way.

theres my line and i'm over it!
that was my first blow out in 14weeks and it's not gonna bring me down. i am cutting back 2 points every day (not loads but will help) and i'm gonna earn BP's all week by walking everywhere i possibly can. i am going to drink my 2 litres of water every day and fingers crossed i will undo some of the damage i've done.
i may not get my 3rd shiny 7 or my 10% next week but i will get them and soon!!
let the week commence, i've got my tracker planned to the last crumb, wish me luck xx

Saturday, 23 May 2009

WI Week 15

Yipeeee I lost 1 lb :) really thought it was gonna be a sts or even a small gain this week.
I am so pleased!
Only 2lbs until my 10% hopefully get it next week although it's Garys birthday so we'll see!

Thursday, 21 May 2009

2 days until WI

well i am having a totally crap week :(
have only gone over 1 day (yesterday) by a jammie dodger - 1.5pts, which i know is not major and i have some BP's from walking but it is TOTM and i am very bloated and retaining fluid. My rings are really tight today and last week they were falling off.
of course i have not helped matters by not drinking all my water GRRRRRR.

I have just bought a dress for a wedding i am going to on July 31st and it is a size 16 :0 I am fitting in to a 18 jeans just now but still a 18-20 top, so will I be able to fit it in time???
mmmm 10 weeks tomorrow, fingers crossed it will fit and i don't end up wearing a top and black trousers as usual!!
it's my gary's 7th birthday next wednesday, and he is having a birthday party on sunday at a huge new play area, i have got the eating part under control, been already to check it out and they have lovely baked potatoes.
the problem will be on wednesday when i have all the party food laid out for when him and a few friends come home for a little celebration. OMG!!! birthday cakes and sausage rolls and sausages - jeeeezo i think i'll go out for the day and get someone else to do it al lol xxx

Monday, 18 May 2009

WI Week 14

Weigh in on Saturday and I lost 1 lb :) very pleased for this week and only 3lbs to go until my 10%

I have joined another new challenge ~ new year new you challenge!
I really believe the challenges are what are making me stick to the plan as I don't want to have to email anyone that I have put weight on!
whenever I get to goal I'm gonna have to email someone every week to keep me on the straight and narrow lol :)

ran out of weight watchers bars eeeck! diet guru laura has got me some at her class and is posting them up!
I usually order from ww by phone but you have to buy in bulk and then they take about 10 days to be delivered, i'm not that organised lol.

well i think i'll have an early nite tonight i'm shattered, stayed up until after 1am, on the laptop, lethal things. I put loads of things on ebay ~username mandy6876~ incase anyone wants a nosey, including my ww scales which I have used once. I know there are people who cannot live without them but I just use ordinary ones!

well off to have dinner, ww pizza and ww chips, yum yum, who said healthy eating was boring :) xx

Thursday, 14 May 2009

Some pictures

Just thought I would add some pictures of my last night out on the p!ss.

Wednesday, 13 May 2009


another new name :-0 gggrrrrr

Tuesday, 12 May 2009


I have just been having a gander around the 5+ board reading peoples posts and there was one saying that someone now had under 5 stone to lose. I thought to myself awww how lucky, I can't wait until that's me.

Guess What........................


I have !only! 4 stone 10 pounds until target - still a fair amount but not as much as 5 pmsl! Yip I am a total rocket lol.

That has really cheered me up xxx

Monday, 11 May 2009

It's that week again!

Well, it is the week before TOTM! Or should that be the hardest week of the month. I am going to be good as gold and stay within points!
I have got tesco delivering tomorrow with all my weight watcher friendly goodies and with my week all planned out there is no reason for muck ups :)
So with me keeping in control let's hope the body doesn't let me down by retaining that nasty fluid which makes me sts every month!

Saturday, 9 May 2009

WI Week 13

I've lost another 2lbs this week ~ YIPEEE Whoooop Whooooop I am sooooo happy!!

Only got 4lbs to go until my 10% goal!!

Not the best photo in the world. . . but is my face getting thinner ~ it better be lol

My wee Jay is still got the sickness bug and ma Billy is working today going through 100 cattle so god know when he'll be home!

I'm shattered had such a mad frantic week and now I feel like I could go and lie down until tomorrow.

Unfortunatly mothers don't have that privelage and we just have to get on with it.

I have a huge mound of sick washing to get through including a quilt :0 and i'm going to scrub the bugs right outta this house lol, hopefully earning some BP's along the way ;)

I've got Vernon 'the man' Kay on Radio 1 to help me through the morning cleaning.

Music should be good today as it's the Big Weekend in Swindon! Pity i'm in dull drizzly Scotland. Oh the days of festivals seem to be soooooooooooo long ago lol never mind I've got Take That to go see soon!

A wee update on my dog Gem, she's doing great living with aunty Leeann. It's very strange her not being in the house, everytime theres something dropped on the floor I go to shout for her to get it boohoo, but on a plus side I hoovered the stairs days ago and they're still like new!!1 Not a white hair in sight, which must be great for the wee ones skin xx

Friday, 8 May 2009

Thank Goodness It's Friday

What a day I had yesterday!!

I went to Asda and the weather was wild! I put baby Kerr in the trolley and away we went, but half way through the door I realised I had left a pair of jeans to be returned in the car. I turned round and went over to the car. I put the brake on the trolley and got the bag from the car. When I turned back round the trolley (WITH MY BABY IN IT) was getting blown across the path :O Oh My God!!! Me and another woman ran for him and thankfully he was fine, phew.....

I got home and the school had phoned, Gary had fallen in the playground and smacked the back of his head I was re-assured he was 100% fine but it was policy to phone parents if this ever happened.

Meanwhile at home I was sitting on the couch and Kerr was beside me when he decided to have a roll, luckily I was right there or he'd have been on the floor. Decided to move him into his baby nest thingy and he catapulted himself out of it and onto the floor - I reckon he'll be the stunt man of the family!

On a Thursday evening Gary has training with his gymnastics club - Carnegie Spartans. Billy came home to sit with the other 2 as afterwards I had a hair appointment. Half way through training they brought him out to me saying he was dizzy and confused!! I took him straight up to A&E where one particular nurse made me feel very guilty for taking him to gymnastics after bumping his head! I promise he was fine!!! After 1.5 hours in A&E he got the all clear and was allowed to go home with a leaflet on what to look out for.

Billy had to go out to check his cattle so away he went when we got home. Gary & Jay headed up to bed to watch TV as a treat after all the commotion.
About 10 mins later Gary came down to get a drink and I noticed red marks round both eyes! As he stood in front of me they started to swell and become blotchy, I immediately got the piriton out (which I had just replaced that day when at Asda!!) and gave him the highest dose, I phoned Billy and told him to get home. I then took his PJ top off and lumps started on his shoulders working it's way all over his arms. Straight on the phone to NHS Direct who were great, they explained that the piriton could take 2 hours to work and keep a close eye on his breathing and mouth. Thankfully it stopped spreading after reaching his legs.
Poor Gary, I then gave him a cool bath and got him sorted and kept him downstairs where I could watch him and he conked out on the couch. I wouldn't let him up to bed until I could see the blotches starting to disappear.
The only thing different that he had was a drink of Sprite Zero while on way home from hospital. He never has fizzy juice, just mostly water. The nurse on the phone thinks he had a reaction to the sweetners that are in the juice!!

Today all been well up until late afternoon. Poor Jay has been peeky after we picked up from school and has now been sick, must have a bug - a doddle compared to yesterday!

Wednesday, 6 May 2009

oh dear

I am soooo annoyed with myself, i've been on the 5+ board and I feel that I am suspicious of every new name that comes on!!!
Last week when the troll started her carry on again I thought eff this crap I'm just gonna forget about the board and just do my blog.
But NO why should I!
I enjoy going on to see how everyone is getting on and picking up new recipes and tips and why should I let some woman who either has serious issues or is just a pure bitch through and through stop me from doing this.


Anyway, i'm sure she has re-joined under another name and i'm just waiting for it all to kick off.
I do hope I am wrong but the posts are the same grammer and style as previous, theres a slight difference but that could be due to a comment someone made last week.
Och, I suppose if it is her she won't be able to hold her tounge/fingers past Saturday night!

Tuesday, 5 May 2009

Och Well

my wee gem has gone!
the house seems so empty without her. the boys have taken it well, just shouted bye to her and then went back to the tv.
had a wee tear for a while and a wee greet when no one was there!

Star Wars Day - may the forth

Well it's been a strange day for me!

I've not been hungry but just feeling kinda weird, as if I had mucked up my eating plans before I had even ate?

Never done much this morning, just went about the house. I had ww bagels for breakfast.

Then this afternoon I went to the community centre with the kids to see The Animal Man!

They loved it especially the bit when I had a snake round my neck!!!!

I ate some space raiders while I was there.

For dinner I had ww pizza & ww garlic bread.

I even had a bout of the munchies later on this evening but I'm still not over my points so I suppose that's good.

Still feel a bit weird though :(

Not looking forward to tomorrow. My wee dog Gem is leaving!

I've had her from 6 weeks old and she's now 8. My youngest sons skin has got very bad eczema which has just appeared when the dog started casting a few weeks ago.
After much deliberating we have decided to give her too my SIL who loves her loads and will take very good care of her. But still it will be like losing a part of the family :(
On the up-side we do have another 2 dogs Ash & Pip who are kept outside in kennels. Not the same as my wee baby though x

Saturday, 2 May 2009

WI Week 12

Good Morning :)

I have lost 2lbs this morning and i'm happy happy happy!
I now have 6lbs to go to get to my 10% goal - it seems so in reach and I cannot wait :)

Last night diet guru Laura came to visit and she is a SKINNY BITCH lol she's looking fabtastic and her bum has shrunk loads and loads and

She brought me a wee pressie with her . . . .

My 1ST stone!

(pic will be added soon)(when I workout how to transfer from my new camera lol)
I was so chuffed, it brought tears to my eyes. I've kept it in my purse and I'm gonna get a wee special purse to keep it in.
Then when I lose more they will be added to the purse to keep forever in there and not on my ass lol

Well I have got a new Laptop coming and I'm soooo excited (such a child) hopefully it will be here today or i'll have to wait until Tuesday and I have no patience for waiting lol
Diet Guru Laura has kinda explained how I add it to my wireless router and I am now trying to find out if I can share my anti-virus with both the desk top & lappie and save myself a few quid!

I'm away now to do the shopping list for the week and chop the veggies for my free soup. xxx

Wednesday, 29 April 2009

WI Week 11

Phew.... What a busy week, it's Wednesday already and i've not posted my WI!

Well I am happy to report that I lost 2lbs on Saturday making my total weightloss ONE STONE!!!!!!
I was sooooooooo pleased as I feel as if it has taken me a long long time to get it off but yipee I got it, now to work on the other 5 lol

In my seasons challenge I have also reached the goal I set of 7 lbs loss :):):)
My next goal is to reach my 10% which I only have 8lbs to lose to get there.

I'm finding it a big difference giving myself little goals to reach and then it's not so overwhelming.
I definately am so proud of myself that I am keeping going with my ww plan and my husband has commented how much the shopping has changed with lots of fruit and vegetables now and no fizzy juice or stodgy pies lol
This has definately been a lifestyle change for the better and I do so hope that the old ways stay away!

Think I'll pop off now to make some free soup for lunch - mmmm tomato soup x

Thursday, 23 April 2009


I am sooooooo bloody annoyed with myself!
I had a SP this morning and so far I've STS!!!!!
I know it's still another 2 days until WI but i've been extra good and drank at least 2l of water every day!
I hate TOTM ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Please please please let me have at least a half lb loss this week. If not I'm definately gonna have a tantrum BIG TIME lol.

Wednesday, 22 April 2009

WI Week 10

I STS this week!!
Really p!ssed off about it but hey that's life.
Was due TOTM at WI so i'm hoping it's been that, next weeks WI will be TOTM so fingers crossed I will get a loss.
It seem to be working out that the week before my period is the week I have a gain or STS result, this must be the way my body works.

This week I am struggling so much so that last night I went to bed to watch TV at 9pm as I was already 1.5pts over. I was sleeping for 10pm and woke up this morning really refreshed and ready for another day.

I hate this week of the month, I just want to eat anything in sight, particularly chocolate and when I start I cannot stop, so going to bed was the best possible option. I have made a huge pot of free soup for today (eaten half already lol) and this will help me save my 1.5pts from yesterday to keep me on an even keel.

It's funny as at the start of my WW journey I had 25pts a day and really struggled to use them all but now I'm on 24 and I could eat that 3 times over in one day. I just want more food! I suppose that's how I got to where I am - eating eating eating!

My faourite 0 point treat at the moment is mushrooms - yum yum. I have been spraying the fry light and adding the mushrooms to everything I eat or sometimes just on there own to have a nibble on. lol how sad am I - mushrooms for a treat but they are soooooo tasty!!

Och well, it's half way through the week and 3 sleeps until WI #11 I better have a loss or I'll be very annoyed. I'm only 2lbs from my 1 stone loss and I want my 2nd silver 7 and if I don't get it soon I'm gonna jump up and down and stamp my feet :)

WI Week 9

Oh dear, I forgot to post my WI result!

I lost another 1lb woopwoop :)
2 more and i'll have my 1st stone off. taking it's time but i'm getting there.

I've spent the night colouring my hair and that is certainly a great way to stop the eating. the smell is god damn awful think i'll sniff it every day lol or maybe that would be swapping one addiction for another :o

I have made a few meals this week from the wwmag and the weekdays cookbook and so far all have been a thumbs up! I am planning making either turkey & apple burgers tomorrow or sausage ragu. Just depends how the day goes could end up being ww pizza from the freezer!

Well tomorrow is a sad day. ma billys wee grandad died last week and tomorrow is his funeral. the poor wee man was a fair age and suffered from dementia which is never nice to see in anyone so at least he is now back in sound mind.

nite nite x

Thursday, 9 April 2009

2 days until weigh in

I am hungry :(
Suppose I should go to bed but no I insist on sitting here hungry will full knowledge that I have no points left and therefore not able to eat a thing!

Why? Why? Why?

Am I trying to prove a point to myself that I won't break my diet or just punishing myself for being seriously overweight in the first place!


I am going to get a grip and go to bed and when I wake up tomorrow I will have 24 points again and I will be able to eat :)

for breakfast I am going to have 2 weetabix with semi-skimmed milk.
for lunch toast and turkey rashers (mmm maybe have a wee egg with that too)
for dinner I am making one-pot cajun chicken with rice from this months ww mag
for dessert (well it is my 5th wedding anniversary) a slice of chocolate & vanilla marbled loaf (that I am hopefully going to bake tomorrow if the kids don't play up lol)
I will then have around 6 points left to spend as I like!

Ahhhh good choices that's what this ww journey is all about!
Not high bad ones that I have probably picked today and is now why I sit here hungry ;)
Who needs a shrink! Not me I've worked it out on my own - AGAIN lol :)

Nitey nite xxx

Wednesday, 8 April 2009


Two days time myself and my lovely hubby have been married for 5 years! My mum came over tonight to babysit and we went out for a lovely chinese meal. I had 3 points saved from yesterday and after my breakfast and milk points for the day (4.5) i have had 0 point soup throughout the afternoon to keep me going with some bread (3) and then a ww rich toffee bar (1.5).

I had spring rolls to start (couldn't resist) (2 of @ 5 points each!!!) followed by chicken fried rice but being the good girl I am I only ate half the portion (5) also pinched a few of ma billys chips but counted them as quarter portion (2.5)
So in total 17.5 points!

Billy couldn't believe when I said "I'm full" as I would usually just keep eating and then complain all night about my sore tummy and how bloated I feel.
I was so proud of myself I kept taking little breaks and knew when I had eaten enough and that is definately a new side to me lol.

Points for today 24
Saved from yesterday 3
Used 26.5
Left Over 0.5

Woo Hoo I didn't go over, hope it shows on the scales on Saturday :)

Saturday, 4 April 2009

WI Week 8

Wooooooo Hooooooooooo

Today is a lovely day (peeing with rain but who cares)
I've lost 3lbs, taking me from the 15's to the 14's and I've reached my 5% goal!!
I have now only 3lbs until my 1st stone and fingers crossed I get there in the next 2 weeks :)

I just can't wipe the smile from my thinner face lol

mwah xxxxxxxxx

Goos Morning

I'ts Wednesday and so far so good this week. I usually start to struggle mid-week but I'm determind!
Yesterday an ignorant man made a comment about my weight and let's just say he wasn't prepared for the abuse I hurled back at him, let's hope it makes him think in future about throwaway remarks to strangers.
I'll show these small minded people I CAN DO IT!!
Think today I will go on the wii, I haven't been on it for ages and I'm sure it will give me plenty of earache but needs must to shift those pounds lol.
I suppose it's time to get the coat on and do the school run. Looking kinda grey here today, let's hope it brightens up :)

Monday, 30 March 2009


What is going on!!!!!

I cannot get on to the ww website, it keeps saying ooops this link appears to be broken grrrrrr. I've tried loads of ways and it just won't work!
This is my lifeline I NEED IT!!!!
Luckily this morning I managed to open long enough to input my day in my tracker but then it disappeared again.

Not only this but ma billys away today until Friday working in Inverness so the ww5+ board was gonna be my saviour. I also was hoping to go on for some recipes for main meals, heres hoping that it will be okay later.

Had a fabby weekend, Saturday morning went shopping and got the kids some new clothes. Billy was working so I took all 3 boys and they behaved like little angels, they are just so well behaved it amazes me sometimes lol.
Saturday night I went out with the girls to a psychic night and disco. The psychic was fantastic and even some non believing friends had to admit they were spooked lol. Afterwards we boogied the night away and had a great laugh as we always do - roll on the next night out.
Sunday morning I awoke and yippeee no hangover lol. Billy made me a lovely breakfast and then we went food shopping to tesco and as he's away working I've stocked up on Light Choices ready meals for the week!

Monday again and i've had a great day so far. Just had lunch and i'm about to burst. I had Light Choices minced beef & potatoes for only 3 points. Also been drinking plenty water (which I sometimes don't do) and hopefully I'll keep it up all week. I've got no excuse for going off the plan as I've also been to Poundland and stocked up on ww mini hoops, nachos, cheese puffs & biscuits.

My aim this week is 2lbs to get me into the next stone bracket so fingers crossed I can do it......

Sunday, 29 March 2009

WI Week 7

Woo Hoo :):):)

I lost 1 lb and also measured myself and lost 1" from my waist 1/5" from each thigh and 3" from my hips - yipeeeeeeee :) (boobs still the same lol)
Just need 2lbs to get into the next stone bracket so fingers crossed this week or next I'll be down there.
Gonna be good Gonna be good Gonna be good lol

Monday, 23 March 2009

New Start

well this 7th week is a new start for me. i've been doing this 6 weeks and only lost 7lbs :( so think i need a kick up the ass!
i've joined a new spring team challenge on the ww5+ boards and changed my wi day to saturday so hopefully that will boost me along so not to let my team down :)
this week is TOTM and i'm struggling but i'm planning on keeping on the wagon and hopefully get a loss on saturday.

Friday, 20 March 2009

WI Week 6

i've lost 2 lbs :)
that's my first 7lbs gone :)

Thursday, 19 March 2009


mmmmm well tomorrow is weigh in day and I've not been bad as the title may suggest. . . . NO i've had the dreaded sickness bug which has brought my family to it's knees since last friday :(
my poor boys have had it one by one and as i type my hubby is the latest victim and has been tucked up in bed ill (and i know he means it as i was the very same) and feeling very sorry for himself.
so i haven't overindulged but i have hardly eaten a bite as i still as yet have no appetite (i'm sure that will return lol) and therefore i have lots of unused points. now many would think this to be a blessing but i have found in the past that this usually has the opposite affect on me and i'm hoping for a small loss or even a sts, fingers crossed. if i end up with a loss of more than 2lbs then this means i will have to be very careful as next week when the appetite returns i will gain it all back on. yip i am one of those poor buggers that only has to look at the packet of rolos and the scales creep up a notch or two - it's sooooo unfair!!!
well away to bed i go and tomorrow will bring what it may, goodnight xxx

Week Three WI

Yippeeeeee :)

I lost 1 lb!!! Thank goodness I didn't lose heart last week when I sts. Fingers crossed for my silver 7 next week!

Well I haven't went mad and ate a Dairy Milk lol but I did have a lovely panini for my lunch and I pointed it too!! 9.5 points but it was worth every bite.

Saturday tomorrow and I'm having chicken with mushrooms from the chinese and I must say it is the most delicious and fulfilling 3 points ever, I might even go daft and half a fried rice (5 points :O) as well lol. Washed down with plenty water I'll have it wee'd back out in no time :)

Well nite nite, it's bedtime for me, I've got an early rise in the morning xx

Wednesday, 25 February 2009

well it's wednesday

no much to report this week so far except for the usual school and nursery run, washing and ironing - in fact pretty boring!
on the "healthy eating" front I have been as good as gold and spent every 10 mins running to the loo AGAIN!!!
today has been my worse day so far and I have really struggled. I was even getting ready to make my dinner at 3pm. Instead I exchanged a mousse (1.5 pts) that I was having after dinner for a special k bar with a cuppa and that pushed me on until 6.30pm.
now I am oh so tired and ready for my bed - even though desperate housewives is coming on soon. thank god for sky+ I can just watch it tomorrow.

oh well nighty nite and I do hope that tomorrow will not be like today and that I'll wake up super slim and able to eat what I want without gaining a pound like my hubby hahahahaha (we can all dream)

mwah xxxxx

Monday Morning Again

Good Morning!

Monday again and what a lovely day it is this morning. It makes such a difference to your mood to wake up and see a little sunshine rather than a lot of rain or should that be snow!!
Well my positive streak is still lasting and into my third week, which is a miracle! I have not yet (and don't intend to may I add) fallen off the wagon and have been so good on my new healthy way of life. I am very proud of myself.
I think it could be this blog that is keeping me going - the fact that if I have a slip up I have to come on here and write it down for all to see. Also the ww message boards are really great if your feeling at a low point to just log in and read some of the posts that are on there will have you giggling in no time.

Todays plan is to do the housework (groan) as I have neglected it the last week.
I have sooooo much washing and ironing and my floors need mopped and the stairs need hoovered, bathroom needs scrubbed and the beds need changing phew I'm shattred already - think I'll stick the kettle on lol! No I won't I will get straight to it and then get the NO POINTS!!! soup on.

Busy day ahead - Oh I'm gonna be polishing my halo tonight when Billy comes home :)

Stayed The Same!!!!!

Mmmmmmm well as the heading says I stayed the same this week! I have went over my tracker a few times and I can say hand on heart I didn't do anything wrong and I have even counted in the huge amount of vodka I consumed and it was all pointed and paid for - as they say lol.
I am slightly disappointed but I am not going to let this send me down the wrong road and reaching for the non ww biscuit tin! I am going to carry on being a very good girl and hopefully see good results in the next few weeks.

As it's the weekend we had a chinese for tea tonight and I am so proud of myself as I had chicken with mushrooms (lowest thing on the menu) and half portion of fried rice with a handfull of chips and pointed everything and didn't go over - yipeeee. I have to say now that I am full up and it was very satisfying.

Now it's time for bed and tomorrow beckons with another day of full points to be eaten.I'm going to bed to dream about the ww sausages I have for brekkie tomorrow - they're only 1.5 pts each and I do hope they don't taste like sh*t. Nighty Nite lol.

2nd week nearly over!

oh well, tomorrow is weigh in day and i'm pleased to say that I have been a very very good girl this week again.
worked out all my points from the weekend and I hadn't gone over YIPPEEE!
the only thing is I feel very bloated tonight and I think it's because Thursday is Garys gymnastics night and I leave the house at 5.30pm and I'm not back in until 7.30pm meaning dinner is later than I would normally have.
I have to say tho that Thursday was always chippy night for the reason above, so I must have previously gone to bed FULL OF FAT :O lol
last Thursday the boys all still got their chips and I stole one (OHNO!!!) but to be honest it was disgusting - my palette was so greasy from 1 chip & it felt disgusting. god I never thot I would say that but hey ho healthys the way to go!!

anyways bedtime is calling so I shall pop in tomorrow and share my WI result and fingers crossed with my hard work it'll be a loss.

ma baby out for his walk


mmmmm woke up with a bit of a sore head on sunday after the over drinking the night before. i fell asleep on the couch and in the morning my neck was agony - oh i hate it when that happens. had a lazy day on the couch watching tv then my lovely billy made me bacon & eggs for brunch.

after lazing about we got the kids ready and went out to play a while and for a walk which was great.

I had the munchies for a while but managed to control it and had some skips instead of anything too high.

thankfully weigh ins not until friday and i've got time to exercise and hopefully rectify any over indulgences (vodka) from the weekend.


what a weekend! well 14 of us girls crammed in to my kitchen and drank huge amounts of vodka, gin, wine, bud, jack dan, tia maria and god only knows wot else. then we hit the golf club and we had an absolute ball (again). this is the girls from the local toddler group and I have to say they are all as mad as me lol. maybe went over my points slightly not to sure but hopefully the dancing has more than made up for it - fingers crossed.

Friday, 13 February 2009

just dropping by quickly to say I LOVE MY HAIR!!!! thank god. the woman has made a fab job of it and i'm so pleased that i even booked in for 6wks time to get done again.

oh well I'm away to clean my bathroom and my kitchen floor as the girls are coming over tomorrow for vodka before we hit the pub :):):)
1st week weigh in and i've lost 5lbs yipeeeee!

Thursday, 12 February 2009

had another good day on the healthy eating, weigh in tomorrow and i'm quite nervous. I think it's cos if I don't get a loss I might go backwards and raid the cupboards (as i always have in the past) but saying that I am very positive and havn't been as focused as I am for a long time.
Maybe I am just at the stage where I am really ready for change and know I need to lose this weight and get fit for the sake of my 3 little boys.
Jeezo away from all the sentimental jibber - tonight when I took gary to gymnastics (the snow melted) I was very pleased with myself. you see theres a hill and i don't mean a huge hill i mean a kinda small but a little bit steep hill lol. anyway usually I am huffing and puffing walking up it and tonight I just breezed up without a single wheeze! hip hip hooray - it might only be a small achievment but it has shown me that my 30mins exercise a day is paying off and starting to make small differences already. YEESSSSSSS!!

tomorrow I am going to get my hair cut OHNO! big deal I hear you say but this is a HUGE deal. you see my lovely lynsey (who is now in oz land(which better not be for too long)) has done my hair for hundreds of years and now with her not being here I am going to have to let someone else do it! any women out there will know that this is MEGA lol. someone suggested that I went to a local college and modeled for a trainee hahaha I am bad enough going to a senior stylist so the trainees got no chance. fingers crossed that all will be well and they'll make a fab job of it, it hasn't been cut since september and i'm starting to look like an overgrown hedge. I will update tomorrow on the outcome.

I'm shattered and away to bed now tho why I don't just sleep in the toilet I don't know since i'm in and out it all night peeing. . . . . nite nite ;)
LYNSEY GILMOUR - this facebook is totally confusing me. get all the aussie folk onto bebo lol
still can't get the ticker at the right bit arggghhhhh!
yippeeee my back is loads better today and I have just done 30mins on my fitness coach. phew i'm shatrd. at the end it tells you how many calories you've burned off and today I burned 127 cals. Is that good mmm I'm not sure but I suppose the more I do the easier it'll become and the more I'll burn.
tomorrow is my 1st weigh in and I can't wait. It's been the longest week ever. I hope over the coming weeks I'll still be as keen to get weighed mmm we'll see lol.
well folks the snow is falling heavily again and after the last 2 days of sunshine I thot that was it gone. typical garys got gymnastics tonight and billy will probably be working late, so I'll have to wrap all the brood up and take them all out with me.

pleased to report in that I have had another great day and have another 2 points left - plenty vodka on saturday for me :)
i must say that I am really enjoying my new look at life, the healthier food and even the exercise!!! I think the forums on the ww site are a huge help, just reading them every day is definately helping me and you realise your not the only one to feel the way you do at times - we're all in the same boat and we'll all get there.
good morning,
ahhhh bliss me and the kids had a long lie in this morning until 9.30am! even the little one snored on.
another good thing my back feels less sore this morning - yipee.
got back to the my fitness coach on the wii altho I only did 15mins to ease the back - back into it and I'm glad to say afterwards I was feeling a lot better. hopefully back up to 30 mins tomorrow.
got my menu all planned for today with a few extra points unused just incase of stressful moments (kids off school - fighting already) but hopefully they will remain unused to go towards my planned vodka intake at the weekend!
off now to put my colour on my hair and get ready to pick up mother dear.

Today I realised why I am fat - I weighed out my pasta for lunch and JEEEEEZZZZOOOOO I've been eating enuf pasta for the full street!!!! In the past I used to just put heaps (and heaps and heaps) in a pot, cook it then guzzle it and think wow I've been good today weight watchers tuna and some pasta hahaha little did I realise that there was probably about 20 points each serving. Not today tho I had the proper weight and I was still feeling full and very satisfied afterwards ;)

Not done any workouts for the last 2 days as on Sunday I hurt my back and I've been in agony with it. Don't know what's for the best - keep exercising or give it a break?????? Eventually me and the hubby decided give it a couple of days then try a light workout on Wednesday so hopefully fingers crossed I'll be back on track tomorrow.

Kids are off for the next 3 days which is gonna throw me off my routine but I'm hoping to keep occupied and not start nibbling when I shouldn't. It's amazing how sometimes things automatically head right to my lips without me even noticing what I'm doing - old habits and all that. Well I am going to break them this time....

my three babies.

the boys out yesterday on the farm

I am proud to say that I did not give in to temptation and I did however clean the livingroom and the kitchen WOOHOO!! Also helped Gary with the homework made their dinner and fed the baby! I did not however do the ironing - ran out of time so that will be my distraction for tomorrow.

Dinner was def worth the wait yum yum it was delish.
having one of those days where i'm kinda wandering about starting jobs then moving to the next one without finishing anything.
I'm in the mood to pick at the fridge/cupboard/biscuit tin anything really! It's only 3.45pm and I want my dinner already.
mmmm what can I do, got loads of housework & ironing but can't be bothered.
Baby Kerrs due a feed that will take up 30mins while Gary does his homework, then I can sort Gary & Jays tea while that's cooking I can do the ironing! After that I can prepare my tea and while that's cooking I can run round with the hoover and put away the clothes. It'll be time for tea before I know it.
I'm a genius lol!

Will I do as I say? - I'll check back in later and reveal what really happened ;)

Sunday, 8 February 2009

end of another days eating and yee-haa i've got thru it without feeling starving at all and i've saved some points which is great as at the weekend I have at wild night out planned with the girls which will require lots of vodka and dancing like looneys!! really enjoying my healthy eating so far - its a great change to stodgy grub which was starting to sicken the life out of me.

snow has started here quite heavy again but probably be like last week and we'll wake up tomorrow and it will all be gone, hope not the kids are really wanting to make a snowman and I reckon trailing thru the snow with my wellies on will prob be a good workout!

off to bed I go now to dream of healthy salads, fruit and a lovely new skinny me ;)
