So November is among us. Last night, Cork (and numerous other places, likely) was filled with people dressed in an array of costumes, scary and not scary (Kudos to the couple going around dressed as Mary Poppins and Dick Van Dyke the chimney sweep, loved it!) celebrating Halloween, and today the majority have woken up hungover to the sky falling. It’s officially Winter, and the great rain lords have started celebrating. Whats that about us having to pay for this stuff falling out of the sky?
With November, I’ve decided to make a few changes. I’ve been rather bold as of late with regard to the diet, fallen off the wagon and let it roll far, far away. So enough is enough, to stop my self sabotage in its tracks, I’m enacting No-Vember – no junk, no takeaways, no alcohol. I’m allowing myself my diet coke in order to maintain reasonable levels of sanity (I need the caffeine!) but apart from that, going to throw myself in gung ho and see how it goes. So, fruit as a treat… hmm. Have to go back to Weight Watchers this week and atone for my sins (yesterday alone there were cupcakes, Reeses cups and takeaway. Lost the run completely).
As well as that, I’ve decided to try NaBloPoMo. No, it’s not a new strange kind of sushi (oh, sushi, in December you will be mine…), its a project where you write a blog post every day for a month, for National Blog Posting Month. Something like National Novel Writing Month, except without the 50k word target, so a bit more achievable for me I think. Hopefully it will be full of useful, insightful posts, and less rants about the aforementioned diet, and at the end of it I can look back and say I achieved it. Heres hoping.
What are your plans for November?
