Monthly Archives: July 2011
I have realised lately that I have been wandering and I have been lost.
This goes against what I wanted to set out to do with my blog. I wanted to show any readers and myself that I can wander and live without having to plan every singe detail out before hand. However I’ve been slacking and I have been paying for it, mainly through gaining weight 😦
There fore I am going into August with a fresh outlook and a plan. I am setting myself some goals and I am going to try very hard to stick to them all month.
In the past I have found setting my self weekly goals and to lists put too much pressure on me and so I am taking a fresh approach and laying them out for the month. I am not going to post my weight as I do not want this to become a weight loss blog. I want it to be about my life and right now this is what I am thinking about and is therefore my current adventure.
- Track all my food and exercise on WLR
- Stay as close to my calorie limit as possible
- Try to exercise 5 times a week
- Attend a course on improving self esteem
- Read the August book club book
- Clean my car
- Book courses – photography, cupcake and possible one other
- Book flights to Canada
- Continue with ‘Me Time’ and counselling
- Attend an Apple One to One workshop
- Use my bike at least once a week
I love reading foodie blogs and I have noticed that a lot of them use jars to sort their dry foods in and I love this idea. But I had no jars 😦
So yesterday I took a last-minute trip after work to Hobby Crafty (and other shops) to see if they had jars I could buy for a reasonable price.
And they did 🙂
So I bought 3 jars to store my oats, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in to start with.
I also found a spare jar in the cupboard and put my brazil nuts and almonds in that one. I now have a jar family of my own 🙂
Right now I’m sat outside with a beer and about to catch up my blog reading.
I also just tried the very first edible fig from my Mum’s fig tree! It was really nice. I feel bad that Mum and Dad are away but it feel off in my hand and therefore I couldn’t let it go to waste!
