Weight Watchers

I finally went back to Weight Watchers last week. I feel totally ready to do it again. I weighed 12 st 10 1/2 which is the heaviest I've ever been. I had a really good week and lost 3 1/2 lbs which I'm dead chuffed with.

It's definitly more about sorting your life than just what you eat. It worked for me before I got pregnant because I planned ahead, shopped sensibly and didn't let food rule my life. Hopefully it'll be that way this time too.

World Cup 2006

I really want to have a world cup party but the dates of Englands fixtures are conspiring against me. Their first match is on a Sarturday, which is ideal but I am driving down to MK for Bon Jovi! Then we are on holiday and it just isn't going to work.

Oh well, here's hoping they get as far as the 1/4 finals, and we can have a booze up then.

Cabbage Soup Diet

This dieting lark is not for me! I was meant to start the cabbage soup diet today in an effort to kick start my weight loss. The soup was made, the fruit and veg in the fridge.................and I had caved by 4.30pm. I was soooo hungry, but couldn't face eating the amount of fruit needed to fill me up. To be fair to the soup, it didn't taste too bad, but the thought of a week of it was horrible. So, I decided that this wasn't for me and gave in and had a can of Pepsi!

Hey Ho, back to weight watchers for me.

How to be a bad mother.....

Sometimes I wonder a out myself. It's been really sunny the last few days and the wee man has been really enjoying playing outside. So what do I do? Take him to creche without a hat or suntan lotion on! How bad did I feel when they phoned me half an hour ago to ask if they could put some lotion on him as he won't stay in the shade.


And I'm on an OU essay deadline....................

Ground Zero

I've been thinking today about my trip to NYC and in particular Ground Zero. It's really hard to equate the building site we saw with the images from 9/11. The photo just looks like a building site albeit with alot of people around. I couldn't get my around the fact that this is essentially a massive burial site and we were taking photos, and people were sitting across the street drinking coffee and eating lunch. I think I was more affected when we took the harbour cruise and came around the tip of Manhattan and the buildings weren't there.

Really strange.


The wee man has in the last week started kissing us when we ask for a "kiss kiss". It's so lovely, if a bit sloppy and sometimes you get food with it too! Then tonight, just before bed time he gave me a kiss and kept his lips on mine for a good 20 seconds. I started laughing and then he started, so of course now every time he kisses me he stays clamped on 'cos he knows he can make us laugh. God I love him so much.

Back to reality.....

I can't believe that I've been back from NYC for almost a week! Scary how quickly things get back to normal. The trip was fantastic, if tiring, and I can't wait to return. I think I've gushed enough to my husband to convince him that we should all go as a family in a few years.

Luke was brilliant on my return - I thought he would cry when he saw me and make me suffer for leaving him, but he didn't. It was only when I saw them both that I realised how much I'd missed them. And he's walking like such a big boy now. It had been really easy to throw off my "mum" identity and just be "Sarah" again. It didn't take long to switch back though! It was really good to spend some time with Lisa who really surprised me with how much walking she did. She has athritis and I imagine that as soon as she got home she sat still for a good 24 hours!

So, we did all the touristy things (as you do), ate well and drank martinis - that is my one sentence summary of our trip!

Back to reality, and we had the joy of MMR this afternoon. Boy he did not like it!
