Back on Track?

So, I've been a bit sick this winter. Three rather severe colds one after another have not been fun.

Being ill means I don't go to the gym. I don't stick to my diet. Aaaaand I comfort eat junk (and wine) too!

My Fat Jeans are too tight. *eeep*

I feel okay now, and it is time to get back on track! Follow weightwatchers. Cut back on the wine. Stop the snacks. Back to the gym!

I lost half a kilo last week - another half and I'll be back in my Fat Jeans. Then 8kg more to drop the extra dress size I have been carrying around since I had my kids. If I stick to my guns I could do this in 16 weeks... so maybe Christmas? That would be the most awesome present to myself!

It's perfectly do-able. I just need to keep on track!

I have had 3 colds back to back and it is all I can do to drag myself to work and back... bleah.

In other news - we live an hour from the snow! It tends to melt within a day or two, but a few weekends back the timing was right and the kids saw snow for the first time.

They thought it was awesome!!!!

Even away from the snow it has been rather chilly. The temp drops below freezing most nights, and on the weekend there was frost in the shadows and ice on puddles at midday.

We don't mind, as we have a very cosy house and central heating. Cars are heated, offices are heated and daycare is heated. It's a lot like a UK winter really, except that the sun comes out most days.
