So the first week of the new month, new year even, is done!
I worked Monday through to Thursday, so don't feel I've been around for much of it but I have taken Sunday off work, so am enjoying the long weekend at home together, before school starts back on Monday!
This morning I faced the Slimming World scales and lost a fabulous 6.5lbs! Not sure how, well I do know I have been totally on plan, no cheating at all and I do know that a chunk of that will have been down to Christmas excess, so I'm not imagining or hoping for great things next week. Slow and steady is what I'm aiming for and refocusing my brain into what I should be eating, rather than what I would like to get away with eating. I know, due to my PCOS, that I can't eat a lot of the things I enjoy and still stand any chance of not piling on the pounds. I just need to give myself a firm talking to every now and again and remind myself of what I need to do. I 'KNOW' what I need to do, just actioning it sometimes is tricky but I'm in a good head space at the moment, so giving it a good go! Just 16lbs will see me back comfortably, exactly on target. It feels good to be back in control.
So normal routines resume next week, 5 weeks until February half term. Both Sophie and Sam have mocks at the end of the month and of course the dreaded actual exams this Summer. Jeff will be head down, full on now, until half term break and I'll be propping everyone up at home. I have a few days off booked, as I had holiday to use up from when I started in September. I've earmarked the bathroom to be decorated then - a little time yet before I get the paint brushes out but I do want to get that job ticked off the list. January is usually a month to just 'get through'. I try to fill it with flowers and will Spring on it's way.
