So yesterday I was about to quit Weight Watchers AGAIN.
I have not been following any sort of 'plan' for 3 weeks and felt like I was just wasting money.
So I rang the 0800 number to cancel my subscription, but ended up talking to some lady on live chat, and she convinced me to give it another month ... and to go to the meeting last night.
Which I did. And I had gained 2 kilos. So I felt stink.
At the meeting, the Leader has a 'Magic Tracker' book, that anyone can take home for the following week, to track in and share.
So, I put my hand up last night, and took the damn book home.
I'm going to use it for added motivation, cos next week the leader will check it!
The best thing about it is you can get meal ideas by looking back at what other's have had.
I hope it helps get me back on track, cos I've pissed around for 6 months already!
I've got the SKY technician coming this morning to connect Sky to the TV in my sewing room.
Then I will be picking Keera up early from Kindy today, she has a vision appointment at OPSM. She flunked her eye test at Kindy last week.
The Kindy Head Teacher wants me to sign an 'Incident Form' this morning too. It better not be a retrospective one, dated last week.
Oh and if you celebrate it... Happy Valentines Day.
9.03 am: And the incident report was factual, and honest. They didn't try to cover up any of the actual facts.
They had a meeting yesterday afternoon about the 'incident' and have identified the reasons why Keera's accident was not reported, and will be instigating checks and measures so it does not happen again.
I'm happy with that. The teacher directly involved is new, so I'm sure this has been a lesson learnt.
I'm now fluffing around the house, just like a mother bird feathering her nest... LOL!
There's not much real housework to do, unless I want to go mad and wash windows or vacum and dust... and I DON'T want to do that!
So, I might just do some reading of healthy meal options, mostly lunches. I really struggle at lunchtime to find/eat something nice, but healthy. I usually end up having a sandwich or an instant pasta meal, which ain't that good.
ANON: Nah, I'm not doing 'therapy'... but thanks for the suggestion. I'm no different from millions of other yo-yo dieters, it is what it is.
4.01 pm: And we are home from Hamilton. Keera didn't think much of the optometrist:
ABOVE: She kept giving us foul looks... and she does them really well!
She refused to answer the optometrists questions, so I had to bribe her with the promise of an ice cream if she behaved.
ABOVE: She didn't really perk up until it came time to choose her very own glasses.
And she had very firm ideas on which ones she wanted!
ABOVE: HER choice. I pointed out that she never wears GREEN, but it didn't matter. She wanted those ones, full stop, end of story!
So, she will have her glasses in about a week. She has the same eye 'defect' as me and Lacy, an astigmatism. Not far or short sighted, we just have trouble seeing horizontal lines clearly.
It's been drizzling on and off all day, so great for the gardens, farmers etc. It's been getting VERY dry in many areas, to the point where flash fires are happening.
Scary stuff. Bring on the rain!
Winding down for the day. Just had a lovely visit from Martyn and Jacqui from Tauranga. They had been over in Hamilton visiting with their Nana, who's in hospital.
Watching 24 LEGACY, a new series. Hoping it's a good one, there is so much crap on TV nowdays.
