Belle Bretagne

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

I had such a lovely, relaxing time in France visiting my grandparents. The holiday consisted mostly of markets, walks in the countryside, home cooked food and not much else! It's a such a pretty quiet little part of Brittany and even though i've been many times, it never gets old! So many little quaint villages and authentic Breton touches. A definite contrast to London town.

I've been so busy over the last few weeks with France, work, visiting family and other trips that I have slightly neglected my blog. I have lots of photos to post - it's just a matter of finding the time. I am back in the country again this weekend but am dedicating quite a few evenings next week to blogging. I want to get back in the swing of things.

I also realised today the last iphoneography post I did was back in September and as i'm constantly using my phone to take photos I realised this was long overdue!

So here is my life through the phone lens over the last month or so....

Au revoir!

Wednesday, 10 October 2012

 
I am off to France for a week! I am looking forward to a relaxing holiday with no internet or phone and lots of delicious French food and wine.

I shall be taking lots of pictures, as always.

Au revoir!

September goals - How did I do?

Sunday, 7 October 2012

As I mentioned in my previous post - I am serial goal maker but not accomplisher. I could write lists for hours but probably not be proactive enough to act on any of them. I very much dislike this trait of mine but hey, all I can do is try to change it.

Nevertheless, here are the results of my goals for September. I'd say they were half successful.

1. Lose 7lb by the end of September 
This was always going to be a bit ambitious and I am pleased to say that even though I have not lost the 7lb, I have indeed lost 4lb which is something at least!

2. Get off and on the tube one stop earlier every day
 I have stuck to this in the morning every day. I much prefer getting off a stop earlier and definitely feel better with a 20 minute walk before work every morning. With regards to after work, well.....it's usually the "just want to get home with no delay" or "i'm going to the gym anyway" excuse.

3.  Try to eat 1200 calories a day (more added with exercise)
The "half successful" thing really comes into it's own here, as I'd say i've done this for about half the days out of this month. I have although, been going to the gym reguarly.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So what can we take from this? I have crappy motivation and willpower but the little determination I do have is able to create a little bit of weight loss.

Here's to getting better every month, and in honour of that here a few of my favourite motivational quotes from the procrastinator's dream website - Pinterest.

Weekend snaps

Tuesday, 2 October 2012

The past few weekends we have been catching up with friends & family, walking miles around London, drinking a little too much, eating a lot, but definitely thoroughly enjoying ourselves. I can't believe it's October already! I've even started planning out some Christmas presents.

It's over a year ago since we started backpacking around Canada & America. I keep looking back at that year and wanting to do it all over again. I might start sharing some of our travelling photos on here as i'd quite like to reminisce and have a few blog posts about it.

Here are a few photos from the past few weekends;
