DD brought home from work reduced profiteroles and a passion fruit cheesecake. How will I resist. But resist I must. This is the most challenging part of my life right now.
Good afternoon Turtles
March to a
different beat: to grow as a person and
to compare the person I am today to the person I was this time last year and maybe
just see a little bit of an improvement.
Spending – 15 NSD’s: have signed up for
the November NSD challenge with @cathybird and set a target of 15 NSD’s on
Donate: When my
husband and I moved in together, I donated about 95% of my house contents to
the Charity Shops so I’ve no goodies left.
I will, however, donate the crinkly eye smiles all the time.
Nesting: I will
endeavour to finish one of the jobs that I have started on the house instead of
creating “another job for DH”.
Exercise: I’ll do
a Callanetics (anyone remember this?)workout once a week, take the long way
round when I’m walking at work and only ever use the stairs. I’ll also count the housework as exercise too
as there is a fair bit of that in my hoose.
Spending: This is
a really difficult one for me due to Xmas fast approaching. I always leave shopping until the very last
minute, end up spending hundreds of pounds and then practically keel over when
I look at my statements in January. So
this year, I have removed people from the present list, reduced the amount that
I spend per person and shopped on ebay for cheap deals. So my Xmas shopping has now been started and I
need to concentrate on not caving in and buying more than what I’ve budgeted for
just because I feel bad that I haven’t spent enough on people. Phew, Pressure.
Stay strong and
true to yourself: I’m trying to eat well so that I lose weight and feel
healthier instead of stress eating 20 bars of chocolate followed by a
multi-pack of crisps. This is right for
Afternoon, Turtles. Miserable and wet north of the border.
March to a different beat. Well, the first thing I have to accept is that I won't be going on my annual holiday to the Lake District. Lockdown and the instruction not to cross the border have put paid to that. Looking on the positive side we can save the money and maybe go in the spring.
Alternate spending - No NSD today. Food order arrived.
Donate – Nobody about here today to smile at let alone talk to but I've bagged up some Halloween sweets to give to any children we see in the next few days. I bought lots but only one little girl came to the door last night. I know she shouldn't have really but we do know her and she was with her older sister who was being very responsible wearing a mask and socially distancing..
Nesting – Loads needing done. Actually, I don't know where to start. A good clean and clear out required.
Exercise - Just not possible to get out today. Weather is awful
Spending - Nothing today apart from the food shop
Stay strong - I've started a non alcoholic November and a healthy eating plan.
I don't seem to have achieved very much today
