G'day. I cam home from my Weight Watchers meeting last night (more about that later) to find my beautiful cow with a wreath around her neck.
I was given this large sitting cow as a present some years ago and she really is quite lovely. Hubby obviously thought her neck made a good place to hang a wreath that I had been debating where to put.
Having moved to a much smaller home some months ago, it hasn't been easy to find places for a lot of things and this bovine beauty has been shuffled around. She now sits in the corner near the front door and this is where she will stay. The wreath too, needed to find it's place this Christmas. I have had it for a very long time and it's rather tattered now, but I can't bear to part with it.It has been sitting on the coffee table for the last week and while I was away last night, hubby decided he was sick of seeing it there and took matters into his own hands. In fact, it doesn't look too bad on the old girls neck.
Getting back to WW. I can now proudly say that I have lost 8 kilo in 10 weeks.The walking is going well. Little brown dog and I hit the pavements at 6.30am and clocked up nearly 45 minutes. Needless to say we were both ready for a drink and a rest when we got home. I would normally be working today, but was asked if I would swap a shift at the nursing home where I work, so my working week now starts tomorrow. Depending on the weather and how I feel after work, it may be around and around the backyard for a half hour or so over the next few days. I have discovered that it doesn't matter where I walk, as long as I walk and as silly as it sounds walking around the clothesline and the backyard, it is still moving these feet that counts. I have also discovered Weight Watchers Chocolate Belgian Eclairs. I can highly recommend them. They really are yummy and only 2 Pro Points per serve. There are six in a box and although not cheap, they are a treat that is nice for a change. Trouble is that I have only ever bought one box that had the chocolate still intact on the top of the eclair, like the picture shows. Most times the chocolate has melted and run off into the plastic inserts that the eclairs sit in. They are in the frozen section at the supermarket and I have bought them, raced out to the car, straight home and still the chocolate isn't where it is meant to be. I have come to the conclusion that it is like this well before I buy them. But regardless, they are tasty. Even if you are not on a diet, they are worth giving a try. Take care. Liz...
