Journalling reads: Shopping for clothes with you is always fun, you have a bit of a thing for t-shirts especially ones with slogans. This one says, I feel epic. The day these photos were taken you told me “the park is epic, just like me” I couldn’t believe that you said that, and I burst out laughing, you never fail to surprise me little man.

Journalling reads: Ever get the impression that you have been here done that? Yeah, me too, especially when it comes to weight loss. I lost 2.5 stone with a combination of Slimming World while I was pregnant with Leia and Weight Watchers afterwards. Then life happened, and the reasons don’t really matter but I put all but 2lb of it back on again. Anyone will tell you that losing weight is hard and keeping it off is even harder. Excuses are easier to come by than motivation sometimes. But long story short, I reached a point where I was fast running out of clothes that fit, hating my body and I needed to rejoin Weight Watchers. I knew that I had to write myself some new rules to try and stay on track this time around. 1. Track everything as accurately as possible, good or bad. 2. There is no “only” allowed after weigh ins, “I only lost 0.5lb” etc. a loss is a loss and should be celebrated. 3. Expect the path to be bumpy and be prepared, slips happen and while I am only human, I know that a bad day doesn’t have to turn into a bad week/month, but it’s easy for that to happen if you don’t have the tools in place to stop it or pick up the pieces. 4. You need a really good reason to skip a meeting, and “I just don’t feel like it” won’t cut it. 5. Just because they are eating something doesn’t mean I have to, it’s fine to say no thank you to what Mark wants for dinner and make myself something even if it is cereal or soup. For me losing weight has to be about how I feel rather than how I look, but I am loving fitting back in this outfit again. 19/09/2014.

Journalling reads: While we were out on the Geocache walk in Sanford, we all got wet and cold in the brief rain showers. We decided that the kids might enjoy sharing a hot drink to warm up. Luckily there was a pub we passed that had a Costa Coffee inside. They sat outside in the pub garden with Daddy while I went inside and ordered them a cup of hot chocolate to share. Even though all three of them moaned because the pub was out of cream for the top. It was so cute to watch them take it in turns to sip from the cup, and pass it around between snacks but the most adorable thing was watching the boys blow it so that it was cool enough for Leia to try some.

Journalling reads: I could pretend that I take my kids on nature walks to show them the environment and make them appreciate the area we live in. I could say that I plan to point out things that will educate them about the history of the local area, but we all know that isn’t really true. I don’t really set out with a concrete plan, we start walking with a few Geocaches in mind to look for. We pack snacks, drinks and coats and we wonder around until we get bored. We look for parks, we search for squirrels. We let them run around a bit to tire them out and I show them anything I think might interest them. But they really couldn’t care less what was written on the plaque or why this spot was being preserved, all they saw was this flat surface at the perfect height to climb all over!
