how can my weeks go so fast? Last Saturday I was 72.4, in the morning, before having the duck and the Sav Blanc at a lovely restaurant with long time friends for lunch. Some of those same friends came over on Sunday afternoon and we had the easiest and nicest greek feta and basil homemade dip. Couldn't walk on Monday as needed someone home with some of the kids! Tuesday I walked, and also on Friday. I can't remember what happened on Wednesday! There were plans for Thursday middle of the day walk, even dressed in gym clothes and joggers, but it was only through a car park! Pouring rain this morning and a little sick girl in my bed, meant no morning walk. I have been more aware of food serving sizes, and ate lots of lovely vegetables this week. Scales are my friend today with a 72.1 reading. Have a great week everyone! smiles Alannah

This past week I have walked twice, in the mornings and boy, did it tire me out. This afternoon I am planning on a walk, and have just teed up a date at our swimming pool with DS (5).
I ate lots of chocolate this week, and did lots of study, and was surprised this morning to be at 72.4, after weighing myself on Tuesday at 72.8. Here is a photo taken on my birthday at Bunratty Castle in Ireland, last month, wearing my new wrap. I won't need to wear it in my home town, although it will be great when I travel to colder places again! Have a great week, smiles, Alannah.

Hi there, I am back!
My apologies for the lateness of my post, and also the omission of weeks six and seven. My holiday was overseas to visit some lovely friends in Abu Dhabi and London, and then a short tour around parts of Ireland. I went by myself and left DH home with the four kids! I did not pack my joggers, although I did do some exercise! I strolled around a mosque and walked up sand dunes; ran alongside trains to the correct carriage while carrying heavy shopping bags; walked kids to school; climbed many stairs at train and tube stations; walked streets looking for shopping opportunities and places to eat; strode along many airport concourses; dragged two heavy suitcases and climbed many winding staircases in a few medieval castles. I ate lots of seafood chowder, drank lots of wine and champagne and did not waste any time sleeping! I was awake for 42 hours straight on the flights home, so came home a little too tired to exercise. I am pleased to say I have walked for the last two mornings for 45 minutes each time, and my starting weight was 72.8kgs, so actually a small loss from before I went away. Here are some photos to bore you all! Dinner of Indian in London, dressed in an abaya in Abu Dhabi (so want one for fat days), out in the desert, wine drinking in London, afternoon tea in Harrods. smiles and have a great week!
