I don't know whether the babies are needing an extra 10 points a day, or whether it's just me being a glutton, but I'm finding sticking to my (already decent amount of) 30 points every day. I am just SO hungry. I'm mostly making good choices, using filling foods, eating lots of grains, fruit and veg and protein at each meal, but within an hour I'm growly-bellied again.
Determined to see the scales display *11* st something tomorrow, but a tad worried that the extra (50??!) points I've consumed this week will tell tales on me. =( It is very possible that the girls are doing a 9-10month growth spurting and needing up to an extra 10points a day, in which case I ought to have a loss - just don't want to get my hopes up.
Too scared to have a sneaky peek in case it tells me bad news and I pig out in pity for myself, lol.
Think maybe I need to change how I'm using the points, make soups/other low point fillers between meals - up to now I've been able to snack without being careful with my allowance, starting at 43 points I had plenty to play with. Now I am on 29, still a decent amount, but without changing my mindset I am falling into eating patterns which mean I only have a couple points left for dinner/evening snacking.
Also being more strict with myself about activity. I walk a lot anyway, but am pushing to do "extra exercise" 3 times a week. This week, on top of looking after the brood and usual walking to the shops/park/outings I have taken Malachi to his Rugbytots class, and run around with him for the hour. I've walked twice down to the village at the bottom of our hill and back again (a 2mile walk and *very* steep) with 50lbs to push in the buggy, and carrying the 40lbs weight of the twins. We also have been for a 2 hour walk in the sunshine to the garden centre. I'm going to be recording how many miles I'm walking each week now, (using MapMyRun) and as the babies get bigger, hopefully get to go out for a run in the evening a few times a week.
