I worked really hard this week on my exercising and eating right and staying 100 percent. Very pleased with myself for losing a pound in 5 days.

Good evening all,

Not much time to come on here last few days. Keeping up with extra easy food plan and my run walk programme.

Have a cold which has turned into what seems like a chest infectiony thing!!

Kids off school today, roads really bad near us. School opened but our route to school quite slippery!!

Have a great night! TB

Well done for the fab loss!!

I've had a rotten cold this last week too, its really not much fun is it! I always find it harder to stay on plan when I'm ill as well, so its been quite a challenge not to binge on naughty things.

Hope the weather gets better where you are. Icy roads aren't much fun either! I'd love to see some snow though, haven't had anything at all where we are :(

Thanks emily,

It is still very very cold here. We have not had water since Sunday. We do have a water supply at the farm yard so dear husband brings up big drums of water and lifts them into the attic to fill the reservoir tanks, so we have running hot and cold water in the bathrooms and hot water in the kitchen. But......No water supply to the washing machine or the dishwasher...I miss the dishwasher more than the washing machine...god I hate washing dishes, I put EVERYTHING in the dishwasher, and when the dishwasher is full, the next load of dishes are very patient and wait their turn!!

On track, exercising, all is good, counting down the days 'til we go to Canada. This cold weather is just getting us in the mood for a real wintery christmas!

I went shopping a few days this week, bought a fab coppery brown velvet John Rocha dress in Debenhams, it looks good and I feel fab wearing it, it will be lovely Christmas day and for visiting over the holidays with boots and tights. Today I bought a new pair of jeans, the fit is really good, and because they fit so well, there are no bulges over the top of the waistband and so I can wear all my tops comfortably. There is nothing worse that jeans that are too tight at the waist, resulting in a bulging top, when that happens I have to wear a cardigan over to hide the bulge of fat!! And I think adding a cardigan just bulks me up more.

Tomorrow I am going to go through my wardrobe and plan my outfits for my holidays, only bringing clothes that fit well and look good!!

Take care, TB

Good evening all,

I stayed the same this week. Not too bothered, I feel good and my clothes are fitting really well.

On the water front... dear husband bypassed the frozen water line yesterday with an over ground pipe...so we had water for the afternoon, I ran the dishwasher...man it was not smelling very good as I was storing the dishes in there during the day until I had a supply of hot water to wash them altogether in the evening. I also managed to wash two loads of clothes...the kids uniforms and some towels. The line was frozen again by 6 pm and the temperature did not go above freezing today so there was no thawing of the water pipe today. I would be getting very stressed about this water situation, particularly if it lasts for a few months....but I am not getting stressed as we WONT BE here for a month....so looking forward to our trip.

Must go, have a great day tomorrow. TB

Good morning,

Kids have a day off school today (December 8 is a holy day here and schools are closed).

We are busy getting ready for our trip next week. I have 20kgs of biscuits and sweets in a suitcase....presents for everyone...not the most diet friendly gift, but it is christmas and everyone in Canada love the irish/english chocolate covered biscuits and sweets. And i was able to tick about 15 families/couples off my shopping list!!

The suitcase has been in my bedroom since last friday and it has...so far.... stayed zipped!! Since starting Slimming World I just don't seem to have as much of a craving for sweet things. That is definitely a good thing.

I have completed the 10 week Run to Walk programme (it only took me 12 weeks...) and I have decided to amend the programme to give myself a more frequent and do-able run. So I am doing 5 minutes running one minute walking repeated 5 times for a total of 30 minutes. I will do that for the next few weeks. As we are going away I think, in my bizarre head, 30 minutes exercise is do-able 4 or 5 times a week. The last few weeks of the programme demanded between 34 and 40 minutes of running...I know if I thought I needed to find 40 minutes to exercise I would probably put it off and not bother...30 minutes just seems more 'fit-in-able'. Am I crazy???

Must buy new runners when I get to Toronto and I have literally worn out the ones I have been using for the last few months!! Might ask santa to bring me a new pair as well!

Have a great day, TB
