It has been a challenging week as we have been away again and I’ve been catering for the two men in my life.
After the mammoth Syn Day, I have been trying to pull things back together, and at best tonight can only hope for ‘staying the same’.
I have not been doing so many walks with the dog this week either, so my exercise has also reduced.
However, saying that, we have had some lovely field trips.
These were taken on our trip to Chew Valley Lake:
On Saturday, we went to Clevedon, and on the way stopped to give the dogs a potty break as we had been in the car almost two hours due to heavy traffic.
Hubby and I had a train ride round the park which took me back more than 50 years to the little train in Poole Park. In those days it was something like sixpence (6d) a ride, but we paid £3 for the two of us for a trip that lasted little more than five minutes.
It’s a popular park though, and plenty of kids were having a great time bouncing on this.
MOH waved to us as we went by when we were about half way round.
From there, we managed to park close to a nice little tea rooms on the front.
The pier has recently been renovated, and a charge applied should you want to walk along it.
So, back to the present and how did I do?
Well surprisingly (and pleasingly) I lost a pound. Hurrah! Hopefully I can keep it going as the next seven pounds will probably be the hardest to shift. When I got to this weight before, I could not lose that final half a stone. I have just 4½ pounds to lose for my 10% and another 2 to reach the target I set myself when I started.
N got her 10% certificate, and Slimmer of the Month, and won the raffle, so she was well chuffed. She is doing so well and we are all really pleased for her.
C had a small gain, but several people this week had the scales going in the wrong direction. Sometimes you do everything according to the book and it goes against you.
It’s soul destroying, and I have been there so many times.
We cannot change what was, but we can do something about going forward and congratulate ourselves on how far we’ve come so far.
