Half stone!

It occurs to me what with the house move and then going on a wee holiday / mini break for Gavin's birthday, I never did give an update on last weeks progress. I wrote this post on Sunday and had blogger set to schedule it. But me being silly, I didn't actually get it posted.

Food wise it was chaos. Turning to a lot of quick and easy foods, although at times I couldn't actually point, I did write down what I was eating to remain mindful.

Exercise wise... well I moved house. That was a lot of moving about. On day 2 of moving I wore my pedometer and clocked 12 activity points, and that was just through walking. I have a strained shoulder so am not allowed to do much lifting over the next load of weeks but did a little and I suffered for it. So much pain.
And it evened out. I still managed a loss of ¾ of a pound! Allowing me to hit my first goal of losing half a stone (7lbs) by Gavin and my sister's birthdays (and also allowing me to feel more comfortable in the dresses I wanted to wear for those occasions!).
So weight loss to date is in 3 weeks 7¼lbs! I got my first new sticker since restarting. Woo!

I am not looking at such a good result this week. I allowed myself to get very caught up in the holiday spirit, but I'll speak about that in the next few days along with the review of the week that just happened.

Adding some pictures of that week now that the big move completed.
A trip with Gav to Ikea

I wish I bought more of this, so so good, sadly no nutritional information so I wasn't sure how many points it is.
We got the keys to our new house! (No more landlords! yay!!!)


Our first meal in the new house was a takeaway.
and then this was a kind of last supper in our old rented house. Lots of funny times happened around this table. I cried buckets leaving the house. Just because it was our first home together, I know this one is going to be even better.


Everyone was so shattered at this point

I'm a wreck in this picture. 2 days of moving, a lot of cleaning, my arm still strained (still hurts like hell) and very emotional.

PS. I did weigh in today, like normal, it's been 4 weeks since restarting weightwatchers and I'm hoping to get a post up for last week by the weekend. I do have a new job now so my routine is very disturbed and I still haven't unpacked into the new house, but that's something that I know will happen very slowly, there will be something up soon.



  1. Hope the new house brings lots of happiness! Thanks for helping keep some other ww members motivated, it's no easy task keeping going and keeping yourself on track! Have started a wee blog myself as something to do in the evenings other than snack!!

  2. Oh sazzle, where have you gone? Hope all is ok! Checking in for a wee inspirational read...
