31/01/13 Weigh in!

Well tonight was weigh in and I lost 1/2 lb!! Doesn't sound much I know but I am exceptionally pleased as I was expecting a gain but I did try soooo hard to enforce damage control from Monday to Thursday!! 

Obviously it paid off and I am soooo happy and so so motivated for this coming week! I have my food shopping in (bought this morning) and lots of fruit and veg at hand!! Watch this space :-) hopefully next week I will be writing with an even bigger loss. Hoping to go for a nice long walk at the weekend with my little family (pushing my double pushchair!) as that has got to help right!?

New Charlie tops!!

We noticed recentely that Charlie has grown yet again!! Which gave a fabulous excuse for my favourite hobby ;-) We went to Next and I got some brilliant deals on t-shirts so I thought I would share!!!

A four pack for £13

A three pack for £12

And three tops on an offer of three for £15 so effectively £5 each!!

Such great deals in my opinion as I love the quality of clothing you get from Next and will happily pay for it but to feel we have got it as a bargain, so it is even better!! In total we paid £40 and got ten tops so £4 for each of them, amazing price but with Next quality.

Next we will be needing new trousers and Olivia will soon be going into 3-6months if she keeps growing so fast!!

Post Baby Weight loss!

Well I seem to be yoyo-ing rather than steadily going down so i'm going public with my journey in an attempt to keep me on track!! After having Olivia I was only 2&1/2lb heavier than my pre pregnancy weight. However I never got back to my preHarry Pregnancy weight!! So sadly even though I tried really hard whilst pregnant with Olivia I still have a way to go!

Weigh in is on a thursday night at 7.30pm so I am going to try and put a post up every week (probably friday by the time I get in as class goes until 9pm) with my loss/gain and my thoughts and feelings on that result and the upcoming week!!

I was 12stone 6lb on thursday 24th January. I think i'm in for a gain this week! I attend slimming world and i'm already wayyyyyyy over my syn allowance for the week due to a night out friday night and cocktails (deadly when dieting!!!). I have just weighed myself (naughty mid week I know) and it say 12stone 9 :-( so I think it will definitelyh be a gain!

In order to try and limit the damage I am going to go completely syn free until weigh in and see if that helps at all!!

I think my final target weight will be around 10stone but it might be higher or lower depending where I feel comfortable with myself. We shall see!!

Sleep Deprived Zombie!!

Well i'm not afraid to admit I am suffering at the moment as not only do I have a newborn my gorgeous Harry who will be 2 in May does not sleep through the night, he is awake at least one but normally 2/3 times but sometimes even every hour!!
I do the night time get ups as my husband works and I am a stay at home mum so really its part of the job description! But when you combine the two babies getting up and sometimes my three year old Charlie gets in on the action too, you can imagine I am not getting much shut eye!

Still things can only get better right?!

Olivia May Update

Wow my little baby girl is 8weeks old already! And had her first jabs on tuesday :-( I always feel so guilty but it is for the best (in my opinion).

She is getting so big already and has such aback at you.  little personality already-a chatterbox!! I'm not sure she will ever stop talking once she learns! Our boys werent very vocal when they were tiny just little noises here and there but I feel you can almost have a conversation with Olivia no matter what you say to her she coo's.

In 0-3 months clothes at the moment although her legs seem to be filling the length in this size very well so if we have a growth spurt we might be moving up a size! I have already started buying 3-6months clothes in preperation!

Our boys are still firmly in love with her which is fabulous I dont know what I would do if they were jealous! However they are loving and always right by her side when she cries which is amazingly sweet. And to see one either side of her melts my heart knowing my husband and I created three such amazing little babies!!!

I must admit to stealing these three photos from my husbands blog as I am on his laptop at the moment as my laptop battery is broken so can only be used plugged in! Not that he can complain as he broke the battery then I offered to buy him his own brand new laptop!! Now there's love ha!

Wow how time passes!

I havent posted since before Olivia was born (she is 5weeks now!) but I feel like I need a bit of me time back so i'm back to see how I can fit blogging into my life as a wife and mummy of three. The past few weeks have been especially busy with christmas and all the visitors wanting to see a new baby. But hopefully as we start 2013 things will calm down a bit and I can focus on perfecting my routine with the kids and making a little time for me.

I had a perfect christmas and new year with my gorgeous family and spent lots of time with everyone I love. My husband has also neglected his blog over christmas but we have spent that time together making memorys that nothing can beat <3

Hopefully - routine permitting - I will be back in a day or so with another post!
