12 Hours and More Stickies!

A quick one tonight I'm afraid - with a 12 hour shift yesterday and weigh in today, I've not had time to fire up the laptop, let alone get blogging!

After a lovely weekend, yesterday was a bit of a shock to the system - a 12 hour night shift is one hell of a way to come back down to earth!

I got up with not much time to spare, and Hague sorted me out my dinner/breakfast/whatever you call a meal you eat when you get up!

A couple of Quorn sticky fillets, with coleslaw, wedges and some fried eggs - so sort of breakfasty/lunchy! The sweet craving kicked in afterwards and was quenched by some good old Mikado :)

Work was long, busy and I couldn't wait for it to be over, although I did have two more people comment on my weight loss, obviously it only takes 5 stone or so for men to notice ;)  As always on a 12 hour shift, I took plenty of noms in with me, although after a slight miscalculation of HeB's I had to leave an Alpen Light and some Bear YoYo's in the bag for another day!

Some more of the leftover stew - with a Shape delight yogurt. Lovely and filling.

I finally got to try the muffins I made the other day, and they were gorgeous! I'll definitely be making them again! I had some ryvitas, blue cheese laughing cows and tomatoes to go with them too.

So with work done and dusted, and several more bruises to add to the collection on my arms - seriously, I look like I've been grabbed and pulled and all sorts, rather than just leaning into a machine - it was time for bed, sweet, sweet bed.....

I shall blog about today, tomorrow, as I normally do on night shifts, but I just wanted to share the results of this week's weigh in with you :)

I lost another 4.5 lbs this week, taking me to a total since June last year of 5 stone 13.5lbs, just a teasing little 1/2lb from my next award! That WILL be mine next week :) Hague also lost 4.5lbs, taking him to a 13lb loss in just 3 weeks. Fantastic! Add to that the fact that we were also joint Slimmers of the Week, and I also got Slimmer of the Month I think you can safely say that it was rather a lovely evening at weigh in! Just a shame that I now have to head to work!

Look at my book! I'll have to start on the front now :)


  1. Well done to you both! Its soooo annoying when you are just a half pound from the next award grrr

    1. To be fair I didn't expect to get anywhere near my award, so it was a pleasant surprise really. It'll be mine next week! x
