Turbulent days

Sorry I haven't updated this recently, bad me!!! Well last week I put on a bit of weight but that is what I expected anyway what with having the flu. So I went back to 19st, but this week I have lost 2lbs again taking me to 18st 12lb.....woohoo! If I carry on like this it will take me 41 weeks to get to my goal.

So these last few weeks, our beloved hamster died, well we had to take her to the vet to get put down as she was too poorly. Rabbit is still kicking away nicely. I've had two treat days recently. My dad took me out to Brewers Fayre and I had Lasagne for 10.5points and a ultimate sharing sundae so that day was completely written off. And yesterday, Jason and I went to Pizza Hut before going to the cinema to see Final Destination 3D. Had bruschetta, an italian with chicken, peppers, sweetcorn, tuna and goats cheese and a choc fudge cake for dessert. So thats the bad me this week. Good the rest of it im sure!!

Very cold today. Definitely turning into autumn with the weather being how it is and the darker mornings and nights. I hate it. If I could emmigrate for 6 months of the year I would Lol!

Sunday, the day of rest

Starting to feel a lot better, the cough is getting better I think so I am more than happy to get back to work. Then my eczema will need to clear. I have this red circle basically of it right the way round my forehead, following the hair line and right across my eyebrows. so sore!!!

Well as I didn't get out of my pit till 1pm I had my left over red lentil dhal for lunch with a pepper (yes a yellow pepper, just eat it like an apple) and a nectarine. Then just felt a bit peckish there so had the last of the hot dog rolls with tomato puree and mustard. Hot dog with out the hotdog......I'm so weird!

Dinner, hmmmmm, Well the OH is probably not going to eat anything so I might just make tuna and sweetcorn pasta or something of the likes. I'll figure that out when 6pm comes!

Well that is me starting to feel better. My cough is starting to break now so I should be all well and better for work on Monday! Yay!!! To be honest I'm glad about going back. I hate being off work, and although I know it has been for my own good, I do need to get back. I have been confind to my bedroom pretty much now for 5 days straight and I need to get out!!!

As for my WI this week you can see that I lost 5lbs taking me to 18st 12lb. I think most of the weight loss this week is due to the flu so I will not be surprised if next Friday is showing a gain. But oh well, i'll just need to get the flu more often. lmao! I made a cheap and cheerful dinner tonight in the slow cooker, red lentil dhal. Was really tasty but made way too much, hoping the other bit keeps till tomorrow in the fridge, we shall see.

Nothing planned for tomorrow, more rest and relaxation before work. Do the dreaded washing of clothes and play about on here more. Been watching and listening to phantom of the opera most of the day and its been making me really want to see it again. It been a long time since I last saw it and even longer since I worked on it, AND I MISS IT!!!!!!!

On the road again

Can't wait to be back on the road again! Oh well I started back on my latest battle last week and thought it was time to update this again. So whats new with me.....erm.....Im engaged. Jason proposed to me on my birthday in May which was sweet and the ring is lovely. A white gold and diamond, not too OTT and I love it. No date set yet as we cannot afford it. I really need to get prices for everything and see when we could afford it all and set a date around that. Yes, I'm all loved up again!

I was laid off from my previous job in February and Ive been temping ever since in HBOS. Its only supposed to be till the end of this month but I'm hoping it will go on longer. Fingers crossed.

Jason was laid off from his job due to his colitis by the looks of it so we are trying to get more advice from citizens advice and his disability advisor as we think we have them on legal grounds. He is going tomorrow for more advice so we shall see what happens with that. Also got a new car. The 300zx died totally on us. It was in the garage for 4 weeks and they couldn't find the problem so we went and had a look at a car 2 weeks ago and got it. A lovely Mk2, Toyota MR2 in red. Very very nice, turbo and chipped, very very speedy but lovely. I can stretch my extra long legs in this one.....Yipee!!!

And the latest news is that I'm off work just now with Flu. Dunno what flu, but flu. Doctor wouldn't see me incase it is piggy flu so he just told me to stay off work the rest of the week and rest. We have had confirmed cases at work so it is possible to have it. But it has been agony. My throat has been on fire for days now and my nose and head just feel hellish. Lots of cold drinks and ice poles and ice cream. Not very WW but I'm still in my points for the day so I don't care. I just want to be numb!!!!

Oops forgot to put this on to my blog, my updated chart!

Such a bollocks week

Well not only did I pig out all week and put on 3lbs at weight watechers when I thought that was bad enough, at the end of work yesterday I was told I was losing my job as the company was hemmoraging money left right and centre and that they couldn't afford me anymore. The directors weren't taking a salary any more and there would be more losses. I was kinda expecting it but it still came as a blow. I was fine until my boss Ann started to cry as she didn't want it to come to this and she gave me a hug, and that set me off into floods of tears, and this process kept going everytime someone hugged me when I was going. So I'm not a statistic of the credit crunch, another unemployed person due to money losses. GREAT!!! So having to find a job yet again, going back to job centre, phoning them on monday, and more worries with my debts as I'll have to phone them and tell them I have lost my job and cannot pay them. Oh the joys of joys!!!

Another week almost gone!

I really need to get on here more to update this. It has been a bit of a rollercoaster....but I JOINED meetings. I had my first one two weeks ago and I loved it, There are a lot of people each with various goals and it was just great having a sense of being. Then went along last week and I lost 3lb!!!! So that was my first 7lbs but obviously I'll need to keep losing to get my first silver seven.....I WANT MY STICKER lol.

Its been a hard week this week though. I seem to be sticking fine but the last few nights I have just wanted to eat eat eat. Had three not guilty lollies on Sunday......not guilty, my bum!!!! too many points still not to be guilty. And then had dinner of pad thai noodles green curry sauce etc, and it just all added up. I'm missing that one point that I am now down, now that I am down to 27.

Jason seems to be getting better, his wound is still weeping a lot but he doesn't have an infection, thank goodness. We had a bit of a tiff. I was feeling really emotional as he was getting quite distant. So i just burst out crying when I was in the bath the other night. I started texting him saying i was feeling unloved as he doesn't tell me he loves me, or hug me, but we've sorted things out more now. I think its mostly just cause hes ill just now, but no excuse! lol.

And here we go again

My Weight Chart:

Oh well its not been a good week today. I've put on 3lbs this week. Its all my OH fault. He got taken in for an emergency operation on Tuesday to remove a pilonidal cyst from his back. He got it removed but they leave the wound open to heal from the inside out. So hes in a bit of pain but not as much as when he had the cyst. So it will be a good couple of months still its healed. Hes set up home on the sofa so he has the tv if he can't sleep. Poor thing, but me, being worried about him just scoffed anything I could get my hands on, hence the 3 lb gain.

I'm going to try the monthly pass I think. I have been told by numerous people that the meetings definitely helps keep them on track. But part of me is just so nervous about going along to them. But I should bite the bullet and go!!!

Today I have been so so so lazy. I got up at 12.20 today and then fell back asleep downstairs in my chair until 3.30pm. Lazy lazy sod! Oh well. Tomorrow going to cook for next week and do some much needed cleaning!

And it begins all over again!

My Weight Chart:
Weight Chart

And here we are stuck in this ever circling loop. Be on weight watchers be off weight watchers, put on weight and go back on weight watchers. I've been following it now for the past 3 weeks and I just had my latest weigh in yesterday. I lost 1lb yesterday which is great seeing as I originally thought it was STS.

One problem though is today. I have had a bit of a blow out binge. I know exactly why. I'm feeling concerned and stressed. My work has gone down to three work days now as a way to try and save the company money. I am grateful because at least it is a job, but its not quite enough. And secondly, my OH is quite poorly just now. He has been diagnosed with a pilonoidal cyst which he has now had for a week. He was given antibiotics but it hasn't brought the swelling or soreness down. AND hes not listening to me when I say he should phone the doctor. So I am a bit concerned about him.

Back at work tomorrow, 9am til 5.30pm. Got tomato soup for lunch with some sandwich. A bit like old mother hubbard just now. The shopping is coming tomorrow night, thank god! Going to try and cook ahead on my days off to save on preparations.

I'm thinking of maybe getting the monthly pass for weight watchers. I don't know but the meetings might help to keep me on course more. I dunno what do you think?
