Anyone who visits this blog at all regularly may notice the lack of my weight loss tracker….

Well, I’ve decided to abandon the WW plan and full on dieting at the moment. It’s just been getting me down too much and I’ve been finding too hard to stay on track. I’m going to try to eat healthier food and generally try to eat a bit less, but not try and count points etc properly. I’ll keep track of any weight loss by how my clothes fit rather than pounds as well.

We’re also going out shopping this afternoon (hopefully) to buy a bike basket for my bike (surprisingly enough!) and a bike seat and helmet for the munchkin to enable us to get out and about more and to try and get me fitter. Mr H has been away on a stag do all weekend and I’ve been stranded in the house, I’ll hopefully be able to get myself out to church and to see friends on that side of town in a couple of weeks (it’ll take a little time to get my fitness up enough to be able to cycle 6 miles each way…).

It’s been a bit of a manic week with lots going on. Mr H’s brother (J) and his fiancee (S) came to stay on Tuesday night as part of their grand tour of the country on their bikes, it’s was fantastic to see them and get to know S a bit better, but it meant we had to finally get the spare room / study clear enough for someone to be able to sleep in there. It took all weekend and all of Monday to get the house clean and tidy, with being poorly the other week we’d let things slip a bit so there was a lot of general bits to do as we’ll as the final boxes to clear (or hide…only a couple…honest!). Together with that my family have been down on the local waterways. We met up with them on three evenings for dinner in various riverside pubs. It was great to see them (and get free food…Mum and Dad refused to let us pay for even one night!). Generally little sis and I got on better than usual, which was a really nice change.

Hopefully next week will be a little calmer, I may manage to get together with my friends from baby group on Wednesday. We’re meeting at the soft play centre in town during the school holidays as it allows those with older children to bring them along as well without them getting bored. Maybe I’ll cycle over… On the plus side as well, the munchkin is now sleeping through the night pretty consistently, she’s still needing to go to bed between 6 and 6:30 and is sleeping until between 6 and 7:30am! I’m waking up feeling much more refreshed after an undisturbed night.

Anyway, I’m going to go now, just waiting for Mr H to get back from London and for the mucnhkin ot get up from her nap. Take care everyone!
