I lost 600g this week taking the total to 6.7 kgs in 5 weeks.
I was a little surprised I only lost 600g this week because I have been very focussed and have not gone over my points in the 5 weeks I've been on this journey.
The only thing I noticed over the last couple of days is feeling very bloated and because TTOM is next Tuesday, I should be grateful that I had a loss this week. In fact this time last month I only lost 300g so I think that's going to be the pattern every 4 weeks.
I have my work christmas show this Saturday night and traditionally it has been a huge night of eating and drinking. We are going to a dinner and show package so there is 5 hours of drinking. I really think I will try and pace myself but I'm going to save lots of points so I can enjoy without feeling guilty.
I am planning on finishing my christmas shopping on Saturday morning. I'll get over to the shops when they open and shop til I finish. There is no way I want to go anywhere near the shops in the last couple of weeks before christmas apart from doing food shopping. I don't have too much else to do so hopefully it won't take me too long.
Ashleigh had her dancing end of year break up last night and came home with a lovely trophy. She did say towards the end of the dancing year that she didn't want to do it again next year which was fine by me. But after 4 weeks off, she is already missing it and she's saying she might do it again next year. Bugger!!!!! I was really looking forward to having a break.
We've had a traumatic couple of weeks with Ashleigh. She has had a couple of girls bullying her all year. Nothing too serious, niggling her and putting her down. I have tried to get her to stand up to them but she's just not that sort of kid. If it was Nikki there wouldn't be a problem but Ashleigh doesn't want to rock the boat.
Well on Tuesday night she came home and told me one of these girls had threatened to bash her up if she told me about them harassing her. Well, I did something I should have done months ago. I was on the phone to the school that quick, Ashleigh didn't have time to think about it. It was addressed very quickly and the girls were all brought together. Of course they denied it. But they have left Ashleigh alone for the last 2 days. Thank goodness there is only 1 week left of school. I have been assured they will not be in the same class next year.
We as a family have never had to address bullying. I can't believe how bitchy some girls are. From telling Ashleigh what she should and shouldn't be wearing to telling her how slow and crap she is at sports. She is picked on because she is too nice and wouldn't hurt a fly. I really do worry about the future for her because she just won't stand up for herself and she certainly would never tell a teacher what's been going on for fear of upsetting the girls who have been bullying her.
I feel very sad when she tells me what they do to her. I just want to wrap her in cotton wool!!!
