When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

Weight Loss Journey Week 7 of 2013

Week 7 weight loss

Yay, these snazzy jeans are proudly sat in my wardrobe! For the first time in nearly 4 years I have been able to buy a size 18 in jeans from New Look and I have made the most of it since I bought 3 pairs! (Thanks sis for the gift voucher for Christmas, I love my new jeans)

Ok I know this may not sound like a massive achievement to some of you but to me this is the holy grail of clothes purchasing!

I love them and I know they are not a size 8 ..  but if we are honest its like having 2 size 8’s ….. one for each side!!

My eating has been back on track this week although the exercise has not really been what was planned it has made me more determined than ever to get my ass moving!

So my exercise targets for last week were:

  • A minimum of 2 x 3 mile walks (min 6 miles total)
  • Attend both hockey training sessions (junior with Beth & ladies = 180 mins)
  • Hockey Match Saturday so need to play the whole match!

What exercise I actually completed this week:

  • Walking – Nil
  • 100 mins Hockey Match (we won 2-1!)
  • No Hockey Training as it was snowing.

So how did I do? 

– 1 lb

Total Weight Loss This Year:

The Gallery: Boys

After joining the Gallery linky via Tara at Sticky Fingers last week with the theme of Girls, this week I am joining again for the theme of boys.

I have searched thought thousands of photo’s of Ollie (the hubby) and Joshua for a glimpse at the Oliver boys:

See far more to choose from than I had last week with the girls, I must get more pictures with me in instead of always taking the pictures!
