Another month down. Did you know there are only twelve more weekends until Christmas? Well you do now.
You are welcome.
In other news, it’s time for my Day Zero round up. Ready?
5. Grow some of our own vegetables
Well, we have done our best. Our tomatoes were doing brilliantly until it got really windy a few weeks back and the plants got a bit battered. None the less, there are approximately a gazillion tomatoes on there. Whoop! Go us!
Except that they are all still green. The odd one or two have gone red, but we’re still waiting for the rest. I’m not holding my breath.
13. Do some form of exercise on a semi regular basis
I have just completed week five of my couch to 5k training programme. On Tuesday I ran for twenty whole minutes without even stopping. When I had finished, the lady on my app told me I can now call myself a runner. That’s something I never expected to be called.
I only have four weeks left with this app and am beginning to panic about what I do next. I know myself well enough to know that I won’t keep going if it’s just up to me. I have been looking at the bridge to 10k apps in the app store, and think I know which one I’ll get (any recommendations will be gratefully received). I have also signed up for the sport relief mile. But I decided to opt for the SIX mile run.
I think I may have been abducted by aliens or summat.
67. Make a reusable, non chocolate filled advent calendar that can become part of our family christmas tradition
I have had a genius (even if I do say so myself) idea for this, and have made the first purchase. Expect a blog post sometime before December.
97. Do the Race for Life and run the whole way
See 13. I may amend this to be ANY 5k run, as the race for life isn’t until the summer, and I may have bigger fish to fry by then. Unless of course I come to my senses before June.
Not a bad month, especially given that I have had to do actual work in amongst everything else.
