Sunday weigh-in : The Sick Child Anti-Diet Disaster !

As I mentioned last week, Pierre's been quite poorly this week. Despite taking paracetamol every 4 hours and mixing in ibuprofen and antibiotics, he still had a high fever from Friday through to Tuesday and was still off colour for the rest of the week. He was also off his food, so I kept cooking up kid food to tempt him - chicken nuggets, burgers, chips, spaghetti bolognese, cookies, fairy cakes , ... Unfortunately he didn't really have any appetite for any of it so the rest of the family ate it all instead, rather than throw it all in the bin. He was also on complete bedrest so I didn't even set foot outside of the house for a whole week. It was never going to be a good combination, was it ?!

It was still a bit of a shock to jump on the scales and see 88.6kg - a gain of 800g. Oh well, Pierre's feeling better now and we'll all be back into school/work routine tomorrow.

Positives of the week

- Pierre's feeling better which was the only target of any shape or form this week !
