2012…

what will you bring? I guess only what I ask and work at. Having spent the last two weeks feeling rougher than a bears ass I am craving healthy vegetables and movement. It is Christmas tomorrow but Santa visits Pagans on 21st December so he dropped off my gifts on Wednesday. I was so lucky to have been given really lovely gifts including this: tala

Not only does it fit in with my kitchen stuff already but is made in England (such a rarity these days), even better than that it is made in Liverpool (how amazing is that?). They have been made in the same factory using the same style of machinery since the 1920s. Keeping old skills alive and employing local people is so close to my heart. I have decided to buy one for each of my friends with the local links highlighted. Thankfully Liverpool is now more to me than the Beatles.

Also it is easier to use than cups for American recipes 🙂

I also had this beautiful mixing bowl from Cole and Mason. I had an original one a few years ago that I spied in a charity shop in Sussex but it cracked one winter when left outside in the garden (don’t ask – it wasn’t me).

I am itching to get out and find my health again, get to the gym, use the health suite, eat healthily and feel that great feeling of losing weight and gaining my confidence. I still feel pretty ill so not going to be doing too much. To be honest I am dreading stepping on the scale and seeing the damage. I have not been weighed for a few months and healthy eating has gone right out of the window. I need to get back control. Nothing felt as good as losing weight did and I need to hang on to that feeling.

I need to set up goals for the coming year. Month by month and month within month. One thing I have realised is I need to plan and to have my goals visible. A few months back I wrote a list of goals and promptly left it in my purse. Only when I was looking for my card did I find it again. I wanted everything on the list but because it was hidden to me I forgot it. I am going to use my blackbirds on a wire to make the goals visible.

More thought on goals for my next post… I am actually getting pretty desperate to get to the gym and get moving. xx
