Weight Watchers Journey- Week 50

Weight – 1lb gain

Feeling – I’m so annoyed with myself! I lost so much weight and felt great, then after letting loose over Christmas, I just fell into a whole that I’m not struggling to get out of. I’m going to try and kick it this week, have a week off for holiday and then really push myself to get back on track!

Weight Watchers Journey – Week 48

Weight – 2lb gain

Feeling – I’m really not surprised because we’ve eaten out a couple of times this week. I am annoyed with myself though. I really wanted to lose quite a bit so I could worry less on holiday. Also my health is suffering again because I have hypertension. I am on medication to reduce my blood pressure. When I lost weight last year my dosage was reduced but now I’ve gained so much again, the low dosage isn’t enough so I really HAVE to get back on plan.

Learning Resources Sight Word Swat game Review

It breaks my heart that Harry (6) is struggling a little at school but I am determined (and so is he) to do as much as I can at home to help him. I recently got in touch with Learning Resources and they were fantastic at picking out the best games to help him. One of the games was Sight Word Swat. He loves this game! And I love how much it’s teaching him.

The aim of the game is for 1-4 players to have a Swat each. Then you choose your flies. With 300 high frequency words from phases 2-6 of the government Letters & Sounds phonics framework. And are colour coded in level of difficulty.

  • Red = 200
  • Orange = 32
  • Purple = 24
  • Green = 20
  • Blue = 24
  • ‘Tricky’ words are highlighted for easy identification to remind children that they can’t sound out these words phonetically.
  • We started with orange and he found these really easy and was very proud that he could get every one right. The aim of the game is an adult says one of the words aloud and the first child to Swat it, keeps the card. Because Jack is too young, Harry played alone but it’s still good for teaching him to read words.
  • Look at his proud face. He really enjoys playing this game and I enjoy playing it with him.

    Because he was finding the orange words so easy, we moved on to the purple ones.

    These he didn’t find as easy (to be honest Jack’s ‘encouragement’ didn’t help) some he could get but some were a little trickier. So now when we play, we start with the purple ones and I plan to slowly introduce a few different colours in.

    It’s a very clever game and I love how he sees it as just a fun game but I know it is helping him in so many ways. We’re going to start playing it with Jack next year too.

    I highly recommend this game.

    *I was gifted this game for the purpose of review but all opinions are honest and my own.

    Ozeri Review

    I was very kindly asked if I’d like to work with Ozeri and as I have a few of their items and like it all, I definitely was happy to. They asked me to choose two items from a list so I chose

    The Ozeri Kandle Flex Book Light.

    I chose this for Harry because he loves to read in bed before sleep but because he shares with Jack, he can’t have the light on. This is perfect for him and he loves it! You can use it for a book or kindle.

    Ozeri Instavac Ready-Serve Domed Food Storage Container, Bpa-Free 4Piece Nesting Set with Vacuum Seal, Green

    I knew I wanted these as soon as I saw them. I’ve been looking for something similar for a while. They are perfect for carrying food to parties or to just store food at home. I like to make flapjacks, cakes or pastries for school dinners or treats at home and I always struggle to find things to store them in. But now I’ve been using these and they’re perfect! I recently used them to take food to a party and I can see me using them for lots of ways.
