The Holidays are Coming and so is the FOOD and BOOZE!

all-i-want-for-christmas-is-a-good-nights-sleepI’m a healthy eater, you may have guessed, but if you know me well you’ll know I have a sweet tooth and I do let myself off and have a pizza,takeaway or cake sometimes! Mmmmm cake! Most of the year it’s easy to manage as there’s only one occasion or outing a week where unhealthy eating/drinking is generally required and the rest of time I love to have a clean varied diet. It makes me feel good and feeling good is damn good!

Now there’s something about Christmas which makes staying balanced oh so much more difficult. For one there’s the numerous Christmas lunches, dinners and parties, the constant flow of celebration chocolates, the work drinks, mince pies, advent calender, then there’s my constant need to bake desserts when it’s cold and this is all even before the big day! 

SLOW DOWN 2013- Let’s Set Some Goals!

Is anyone else a tiny bit confused that it’s October?! I literally still think it’s July! Slow down 2013 YOU’RE IN SUCH A RUSH! (Yes I just addressed ‘2013’ as if it were a human!)

Everyone always talks about how fast the year goes by and of course time is time so it can’t really be going any faster than previous years but it honestly is this year!

So are you a goal setter? Did you make new years resolutions? How are they going? (looks sheepish, grunts, changes subject) Okay I’m honestly not much of a goal setter either which is weird because I am a crazy driven person. I still feel like there are some things to be achieved in 2013 and maybe goal setting is the way to go!
