All happy here, results this morning, No2 son got his A so will get to his chosen school. Cheesy chips to follow! WOOP!
So I had my cheesy chip last night and enjoyed every mouthful but did feel a bit sick after it,just not used to so much stodgy food. Anyway, back to it today, still very proud Mum and so relieved, his 2 results were so good that he'll get first pick of whatever school we fancy. Our choice is the one his brother is at and happens to be one of the highest performing schools in Northern Ireland so no complaints there! So unfair though to put them through it all at such a young age, he is young for his class so still only 10, such a little boy. Anyway, off out with the dog to try to minimise the damage,
2 off for me this week thank you very much despite the cheesy chip. Woop!
The Gods do like to challenge us, don't they? School run (we walk, about a mile there and back) in the snow and ice but I made it in one piece (with No2 son a picture in shorts and snow boots!!) Now I need to leave shortly to go and get him again and it's chucking it down and really windy with occasional hailstones, then walk from school to piano lesson, walk around the block a few times while he's there and then walk home when he's finished. Definitely time for the waterproof trousers, someone give me strength to walk past the car on the way to school without getting in to it! Just had lunch, a huge bowl of salad with some ham and LF cheese thrown in, lettuce, carrot, celery, onion, cucumber, tomato and lighter than light mayo. Was gorgeous. washed down with water and green tea. Soup for dinner with a small sandwich I think. All good!
So I did all my walking yesterday and was variously snowed/rained/hailed on, all with gale force winds. I was so wind burned last night, my face was blazing! I'm glad I did it though. Today is a much nicer day even though the wind remains. I have walked to school and then detoured for a longer walk back along the shore with the dog. More wind burn with a bit of sea spray burn thrown in for good measure! I think I need a balaclava! Just had a breakfast of grapefruit and pear with LF yogurt, very nice too. Off out visiting shortly, then back to school (walking) later, maybe another walk tonight after dinner. Walking really is the only exercise I do but I think I'm ok with that for now as it is a good one. Maybe something a little more toning as time goes on.
Have a great day!
You sound totally in the zone Hun, although did have a little laugh at the thought of a balaclava x
Easter Challenge = lose 7lb .. completed 26/02/2013
Really feeling great and totally in the zone indeed. You could just imagine the trouble I'd get in to in Northern Ireland in a balaclava. Many other places too I'm sure!
I'm loving the fact that when my concentration begins to wander, as it does a lot, something comes along within a day or two to refocus my mind. I had a terrible day on Friday food wise and then yesterday we decided that we could, after all, afford to go on holiday this summer, something we had ruled out. We have decided to go back to the same place as last year (a gite in Frances) as that's what the kids want to do, they had a great time. Last year I spent the 2 weeks trying to fit in to clothes and saying to myself "If only..." and "Why didn't I..." and feeling very uncomfortable in the heat. That will NOT be happening this year! Usually when I'm off course it takes quite a while to get back on so I hope these reasons to lose weight keep coming! Having said that my son has just informed me he wants to go to an "all you can eat" buffet for his birthday next week. It's all right for him, 6 feet 2 and 9 stone! (He is only 14 though) Not sure how I'll get through that one but I'll give it some thought.
1 off this week, to be expected. I know a pound is a pound but 7 would have been nicer
Well the all you can eat buffet idea has been shelved in favour of somewhere more Coeliac friendly for the younger one and we have decided on a place where at least I know I can get steak and salad to keep me happy. The walking is still going well although I did get half drowned on the way to school this morning. On the upside I was carrying a cello on my back which can only have helped from a weight loss perspective!
Still managing to keep going somehow, not sure where this motivation is coming from but I'm not knocking it. It's the weekend which can be tricky for me but I'm going to try very hard to keep things under control and get plenty of walking in and that should do the trick. The kids are off for half term starting today which won't be easy either from an exercise AND food point of view but I'll just have to do my best.
