8th - I like this. (Obviously I'm not talking about the sunburned beetroot look on my face or the rather plump silhouette!) There are just so many things I have learned in the last couple of weeks about exercise, being in the gym, and running. Most of all I realised that I actually look forward to my runs. This needs to be a layout for sure.
9th - Jalapenos Rock. Although being on a diet means some things are for special occasions only, chillies can liven up many dishes with no calories. I never used to like omelettes but with jalapanos in I absolutely love them. I have taught myself to make them so they are light and fluffy and totally delicious with a salad. Chillies are my friend.
10th - B can make a smoothie. The kids had fun at the local agricultural show where one of the stands was about healthy eating and they were encouraged to make wraps and smoothies. But it didn't mean she had to drink it.
11th - Raspberries are not blueberries. After running out of blueberries, which I have EVERYDAY in my muesli, I was forced to try raspberries instead. I love them in yoghurt but they did not work at all with my breakfast. We must never run out of blueberries again.
12th - She loves corn-on-the-cob. This is such a great time of year for produce and it looks like B is joining the rest of the family in loving sweetcorn. Shame it has a rather unfortunate after effect though...
13th - It sort of works. I've been promising myself one of these garlic crushers for a couple of years now since I first saw them at the local agricultural show. It makes a paste out of the garlic and things like ginger but it also grates chocolate, nutmeg and nuts quite finely too. The end bits are tricky though...
14th - I have a new flower. I saw this flower on Kirsty Wiseman's blog and I love it even though it went a bit wrong. I have lots of ribbon so I will definitely be using this technique again. Sometimes doing it wrong can be the right thing.
So that's the first couple of weeks of September done and I am already planning a layout for all the fitness stuff I have learned. I've got lots of journalling to fit on so while I'm on the treadmill doing my C25k, I'm also mentally working out how I can fit loads of writing on without it becoming a page full of text! Hey, it makes the time pass and that's all good, yes?! Crafting on the treadmill, is that extreme scrapping or what?!
Bye for now!
