I'm avoiding all pictures and talk of cake, it all sounds way too delicious. Even Tea's porn cake wink

After thinking it was going to be me and DS completely alone for the next week turns out this weekend is going to be fun after all. My sister is coming round tonight for a mini Randall and XDH has made a surprise babysitting offer for Sunday so I shall be having a proper BBQ themed Randall.

I have not prepared. This weeks weigh-in will not be a good one!

Hello? I haven't had my iPad for last 2 days ( busy at work and then left kicking thing in office). I have just logged in and you lot have gone cake bonkers! What's been going on??? Carrots and humous chiefs, not carrot cake!
Loooove the bucks fizz stuff, but im old enough to remember brotherhood of man! My gig was The Specials actually, you mockers (double!) but you know Cliff can be good on his day.... Freebie gig through work so extra good!

Lizzylou Sat 25-May-13 08:25:22

Tea grin
Have such a vision of you now!
Randall, yay to bad ass Randalling.
Dinky, I always wanted to be in Pans people or legs and co. The Specials were good.

Lovely lovely day here, shop done, off to Parkrun now. Happy Chiefing smile

DoubleMum Sat 25-May-13 12:23:31

Very nice day here too, and I thought the weekend was meant to be miserable. Have a lovely new car, need somewhere to drive it to! I had put on this morning (not my weigh-in day) so am forbidding all Randalling in this house, although have earmarked the icecream to be finished so it's gone and I can stop thinking about it! Sorry if that sounds horribly bingeful.
Have lovely Parkruns all of you who do it.

Lizzylou Sat 25-May-13 16:47:10

Yeah pb at Park run, beat best time by almost 1 minute!
I also appear to now be quite blonde (for me!) and have shorter hair than expected after my hairdressers appointment this afternoon.
Still sunny!
Hope you are whizzing around in your new car Double and that those Randalling are doing well grin

Lost you all in the forum re-shuffle.

Maintaining well on 6:1 (fasting one day a week) and no snacking in between meals on week days (weekends excluded as usual). No longer weighing myself but this morning DH had to punch another hole in my belt.

But the best news is that I'm now running non-stop for 25 minutes! Okay, so I am slow (I cover 3.3km in that time) but I am happy! I love it. 5km here I come.

RandallPinkFloyd Sat 25-May-13 18:48:56

Oh dear. My mini Randall turned into a maxi Randall. It was a really lovely night and something we haven't done for far too long, but we ended up talking crap til 4 o'clock!

After the BBQ tomorrow I'm going to have to fast my arse off if I don't want weigh-in-Wednesday to be a complete disaster.

I'm going on a hen weekend next week too. Bugger.

This week I shall mostly be eating - dust.

Well one on the run Lizzy smile

RandallPinkFloyd Sat 25-May-13 18:50:41

Wowzers, well done Bssh!

Lizzylou Sat 25-May-13 19:13:15

Go Bssh!
Good Randalling, Randall grin

DoubleMum Sat 25-May-13 20:20:34

Well done Bssh, and Lizzy you sound very glam!
Randall, you sound like, well, Randall TBH!

DoubleMum Sun 26-May-13 12:08:45

Oh dear, fish and chips yesterday, today pub lunch! So much for not Randalling ...

TheTigerDidntComeToTea Sun 26-May-13 14:04:28

TMI warning - poo mentioned, well it is the poo thread?

Hey chiefs, the cake is all gone thankfully. My colleagues ate loads and I took the rest to my mums where my siblings and nieces and nephews polished the rest off.

Tea did you take a picture??
Lego did dh enjoy the cookies, they looked fab! And how was the spidey cake?
Randall yay for surprise arrangements and babysitters!
Lizzy you're getting faster every week, well done!
Bssh well done on the running

Well Dh and I Randalled well on Friday night for his birthday. I had a major hangover when I went to collect the kids to be confronted by dd who couldn't "get her poo out!" I had to, well I can't even describe it, traumatic doesn't even begin to describe it. The poor baby. And she is fine now so I'm not sure what to do? Except try to wipe it from my memory?

I'm working today, cup final day, the sun is coming out and I have a healthy packed lunch with me! Anyway, ko is 3pm so I better get back to work. Happy Sunday everyone!

BsshBossh Sun 26-May-13 14:05:06

Bank Holiday weekend and half term is a particularly hard combo Double. I'm going to try not to snack next week but think I will eat some lovely hearty main meals.

DoubleMum Sun 26-May-13 19:02:22

Well, it was v nice, and I haven't eaten much else so will be OK.
Tiger suffice to say I understand!!

dinkydoos Mon 27-May-13 12:54:34

I made a cake!!! I am blaming all you lot with your cakey chat. It was a Venetian carrot cake , no flour, lots of ground almonds. Obviously the carrots in it negated any calorie content. Phew.
Actually have eaten like a horse, and therefore will expect a horse type weight this week. tiger I feel your poo trauma....

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 27-May-13 14:54:26

I Randalled. I mean really Randalled.

Fasting today and tomorrow in the vain hope of negating some of the effects. I'd be more than happy just to maintain this week tbh, as long as I haven't gained that'll do for me.

That sounds grim t say the least Tiger, glad she's feeling better though!

Sounds like some lovely weekends have been had. Hope everyone's enjoys their soggy bank holidays smile

DoubleMum Mon 27-May-13 16:25:34

Had no rain at all here Randall, but have had another pub lunch so I suspect a weight gain is on the cards tomorrow.

Lizzylou Mon 27-May-13 18:06:19

Evening all you Randallers and poo pullers grin
Busy weekend, Dh completed his triathlon, did so so well. Randalled big style afterwards.
Been up doing the Malham safari and lots of walking today.

Hate my hair, look weird. Dh loves it though. Hat shopping this week grin

LaundryLegoLunch Mon 27-May-13 21:38:54

Hello all!

Lizzy it's always odd when you have quite a dramatic change isn't it? Do you get a surprise when you catch your reflection grin?
Tiger poor you! I remember someone saying to me once that you really know you're a parent when you're glad to catch your child's vomit in your hands. I now know exactly what she meant... Oh, and the Spider-Man cake was awesome, ds2 was so thrilled with it.

This weekend is soooo hard. I'm finding more and more that I'm good(ish) Mon-fri then I let myself go a bit over the weekend, but often I feel a kind of food-hangover guilt/regret and shame. I love food (hence becoming a chief) and am clear that I want to be able to enjoy eating out when with friends/on holiday etc but I feel like I'm getting too emotional about food. Not sure if that makes sense. I weigh well record as I weigh myself every morning and night but don't tell me off please on a Weds, maybe I should switch it to Fri so I see the benefit of the goodness and can have made up for any weekend mishaps?

Anyhoo, I hope you've all enjoyed the lovely sunshine and have had marvellous weekends!

DoubleMum Tue 28-May-13 07:30:12

I've put on a lb which is disheartening but not really surprising given how off-plan I've been. It's made a difference to semi-lose DH's support while he concentrates on getting used to his anti-depressants and wants to eat nice things. But I need to get past that.
Good luck to everyone starting half term in the rain! Rain here, they won't be able to go out on their bikes which will make them grr.

Lizzylou Wed 29-May-13 11:58:35

Where is everyone?
Randalling is shedding the lbs like a bugger!

I'm in a queue to get on a ride at Alto Towers. Sadly it is one with a huge feck arf squirrel for toddlers rather than any scary ride.

I haven't exercised or fasted for four days <sob> because I've been at my parents and my Mam's appendix burst so I've been a bit of a Florence so no time to cater for my diet. I've had wine most evenings to medicate life with 4 boys and 2 slightly dotty parents. I'm now stuck at a theme park with a toddler. The healthiest food on site is a fresh apple donut. I will drink booze and go to an all you can eat hotel restaurant tonight.

I'm having the sort of week that made me a Chief. grin

Missing all Chiefing and Chiefs.

Lizzylou Wed 29-May-13 13:03:19

Oh Tea, hope your Mom gets better soon.

Food and drink sounds fab though!

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 29-May-13 13:28:24

Blimey Tea poor Mum, that must have been horribly scary. Hope she's on the mend now, sounds seriously painful.

I envy your Alton towers fun (even if it is only the kiddy rides!), haven't been for almost 3 years <sniff>.

Don't worry about a tiny gain Double, easy on - easy off. You're doing really well to stay focused when you've got so much else going on. Keep going chief thanks

Lizzy you really are too kind! Another 2.4lb off somehow, very confused but totm did start yesterday so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway, I need a massive chiefly push for the next weigh-in as another 2lb off would make 4 stone lost in exactly 5 months. I'm on a hen weekend this Friday and Saturday which will involve some serious Randalling so it's going to take a Herculean effort and more than a little luck if I want to get there!

Onwards and downwards chiefs smile

DoubleMum Wed 29-May-13 14:48:06

That's so fab Randall
Tea hope your mum is better quickly. An apple doughnut counts as at least one of your 5 a day surely?
I'm not doing well, have actually only eaten cake today. Luckily the cake is now all gone. DH not doing so well and food not a proper priority at the moment, might need to allow myself a week off or something.
