Daddy Day Care and the start of Week Two!

So, Wednesday is historically ‘daddy daycare’ – the day husband looked after larger child while I was at work. I’m tagging along while on mat leave, the schedule is roughly:

Soft play
Sainsburys lunch

That’s why today is my best day for getting healthy. As long as I can fit in feeding the baba, I can get away with doing some ‘me’ stuff. Like weight loss group. I went today, and the focus was portions, I basically need to eat more fruit (I have already been trying). And measure stuff out, and eat more dairy.

I feel like I’ve kinda eaten more than I normally would, in trying to get the right amounts of the right stuff, but I’ve nearly hit all of my ticky boxes!


I think it’ll be easier on a normal day, when I’m having snacks with the kids during the day. I made my short term goal to eat more fruit – I’ve started this, but want to keep the momentum going. I have to fill in the ticky boxes every day too, I suppose it’s to help you learn until it becomes automatic.

Next week I’ll start the exercise part after the diet class bit, so I’ll see how that goes!

Exercise this week was Zumba, it was silly hot, and I didn’t feel as good, but it was nice to have some time out! I was a little achy from the Zumba DVDs the other day, this is the first time my stomach muscles have ached since being pregnant, so I’m actually kinda glad!!! It’s now 22:41 and I’m trying to get baba to settle back down to sleep, I’m now getting tired.

Foodwise, I made porridge, yoghurt and fruit for brekkie (sounds odd, but it works and I counted the yoghurt as a dairy portion). Another change4life recipe, everyone else ate it too.

I did sainsburys for lunch, giant cous cous and goat’s cheese salad, which was nice, and noodles and veg for tea.

So, not too bad really, a little bit of choccie and a biscuit as a treat. Off to a good start, going to bed full up, but will I be able to keep up the momentum?

Wanted to start a new exercise class tomorrow, I think my back is up to it, but husband got in first with a game of squash. I did point out that he played football on Monday and Tuesday, but apparently it’s too soon for my to risk for back! Ha! Next week I shall kick his ass, and go to a new class!

Weight wise, I put on 1lb since last week. I choose to believe that’s cos I didn’t have time to feed the baby before class! But it’s more likely to be the meal out and alcohol from the weekend. Well, it was an early birthday celebration, and you only turn 30 once!
