    Iceland was AMAZING! Such a beautiful, otherworldly place. I'm trying to upload a couple of photos but they're too big Anyway, we hired a car and drove from Reykjavik to Geysir and Gullfoss, then headed south past Urridafoss and Seljalandsfoss to Vik. Then east as far as Jokulsarlon lagoon and diamond beach, which is as magical as it sounds. Then back to Reykjavik via a glacier, Skogafoss and the Secret Lagoon. And a wool factory shop (a highlight for me ). We stayed somewhere different every night, either Airbnb or youth hostel. It was a fantastic, exhilarating,

    Great thanks! Busy busy busy preparing for a family holiday to Iceland next week - it's out first holiday abroad since we had the kids. Everything ticking along nicely though, on track to meet week 2 targets :-)

    It was really good. I used this recipe, but added a clove of garlic. Week one report: - complete the beginner bodyweight workout once. I did this, doing two reps omitting the plank as it can exacerbate pelvic floor issues resulting from childbirth. - swap daily chocolate for a protein/fruit/veg snack. 7 out of 7! Very pleased with this. When chocolatey thoughts occurred, I acknowledged them and then set them free! - swap 50% toastie/sandwich lunch for salad or soup. 4 out of 4! Again, really pleased. - do at least 1 20/10 UFYH session. Did this, and

    Midweek report. - Swapped chocolate for protein/fruit veg every day. Some almonds and either raisins, grapes or apple. - Alternative to toastie or sandwich for lunch 3 out of 7 (aiming for 4 out of 7). I made spinach soup, and had it for lunch yesterday and today. It's green, and good! - I did a 20/10 tidy session yesterday

    Haha, I forgot to add that I had dinner too! The egg/cucumber thing was a post work snack, dinner was salmon en croute with roast new potatoes and green beans. Yum! I take your point though, afternoons are my usual eat-all-the-things time, so having some protein at lunch and making sure I have a good snack on hand for later will hopefully help.

    Definitely. I think I'm going to use some of the ideas in the Beyond Chocolate books, and I think Gillian Riley suggests similar: not hide from those feelings and cravings - feel them, acknowledge, find another way to feel better (write it down, deep breathing, phone a friend, walk around the block, whatever).

    Day 2 report. I didn't have what I needed for salad today so I used one of my sandwich allocations. Beat chocolate with a small bowl of almonds and raisins. Yes! Planning on making soup tomorrow, and doing a 20/10 Unfuck Your Habitat session.
  11. Love the sound of the colour block tunic. I am nosy - please let me see your fabric choices!

    Thanks! I still can't believe I did that. I stumbled upon this awesome blog called tiredofthinkingaboutdrinking when googling for sober blogs. She suggests a 100 day challenge (because 30 days isn't long enough, and forever is terrifying). That was 500 and something days ago. Today has been a great day 1. I work on Sundays, my shift today was 6am-3pm. There is a really good staff canteen, and I had a big old bacon/sausage/scrambled egg late breakfast, with an apple. I didn't want much at lunchtime, so I had some melon and mango slices and a homemade cherry scone (so good!).
  13. I like to read reviews of sewing patterns before deciding which one to make - just google the pattern number and you'll find forum reviews, or (even better) reviews on sewing blogs. I mostly knit socks, as they're easy to pick and put down, but if I have a chunk of time I like making clothes for the kids, and quilts, and sometimes clothes for me.
  14. Your english is excellent! Wishing you all the best in your quests.
  15. I'd love to see what sewing pattern you pick. I like to make things too.
