I have been for quite along time.
I am doing something about this.
I have been following WeightWatchers for some months and the results have been great. I’ve started Couch to 5K with a jogging pram.
The last two weeks however have seen me stop following WW for one reason and another. And today well I feel shit! I’ve not left the house today. I’ve eaten two pieces of cake, extra bowls of cereal and have spent a good portion of the day reading about new diets I could follow (while eating) . I need a good kick up the arse.
Each day I think here it is …here is the new start but it’s like I’m unraveling.
I’m really enjoying reading the blogs in the Breastfeeding in England Scavenger Hunt. This week they are focusing on the benefits of breastfeeding. One major benefit of breastfeeding is it’s portability allowing me to multitask. As you can see in the shot below Mini Instant is falling asleep. I’d just been taking some photos for a friends website Mini Instant was tired so I put him in a hip carry and kept snapping away.
Let me know of any multitasking breastfeeding moments you have had.
Well it seams like I’ve been uninterrupted a fair bit!
I’m so far behind in my projects I can’t quite believe it. There is a few I have yet to write up so hopefully next week they will get there.
So here is a little something I made.
Mr Interruptible’s Gran gave us a large bag of windfall apples a week or two before Christmas. So when I picked the bag up and realised it was leaking and smelled of cider I thought I better do something quick.
We sorted the bad from the very bad and then I made jam!
It’s really tasty. I’ve been spreading it on toast or stirring into plain yogurt. There is a sort of recipe below
1.25 kilos peeled and finely choped Windfalls apples ( After listening to GQT on the 6 of Jan http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/gqt I believe that they are cider apples)
1 beetroot peeled and choped
300 gramms castor sugar
some cinnamon and nutmeg
a splash of water
Put all the ingredents in to a heavy pot ( I used the one in the first photo) boil for about 1 hour
Reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 hours with lid on
Remove lid, turn the heat up for about 40 minutes and stir with a whisk ever couple of minutes
When smooth and jam like put it in a jar
So that’s it the first one done! I’m going to try to get more crafty things up and happening. Also really trying to get to grips with the camera and stuff.
I’ve been inspired by So Resourceful who, in 2011, completed 111 projects.
This year I’m going to complete 50 projects and I’m setting myself the following rules
- Each project must result in something physical
- Food can count but not just dinner!
- Photograph each project.
There are lots of other things I’m keen to do in 2012 and I hope to share those with you too but for the moment just the projects.
Happy New Year
Our yarntastic Christmas tree.
