Let’s talk about the goals I set for 2013, just to get that out of the way and be done with it. This is what I said at the beginning of this year:
It’s time to reveal my plans: a new year has started and this year is special to me. In May I’m hoping to reach the age of 45 and in March it’s 20 years ago R. and I met. Because it’s a special year to me, I started thinking about what I want to accomplish this year a couple of weeks ago. I thought and thought about it over and over again till I was convinced I can do this and I want to do this.
I have 2 big goals this year:
1. Reach my goal weight
2. Run a half marathon
Well I didn’t meet both of my goals. In fact I have gained a little over the year. I still want to lose weight but won’t work on that before I have a diagnosis.
I have given up on the idea of running a half marathon completely (at least for now and for next year). Maybe I will someday but it’s not a priority.
For next year I have different goals. What they are? Well you have to wait till the end of this year before I reveal them (still working/thinking about them).
I have my Christmas dinner planned this weekend and made a shopping list when to buy what. Also put up the Christmas tree. We have a fake one in the addict but I find it too big now. We bought a real one at one of the stores of my company. Photo will follow later this month.
Photo a day challenge:
December 4: Tiny.
Tiny apples in my Beebox this week.
December 5: In my cupboard
You have seen this before but I used it for the challenge because the colors make me happy and it’s a waiste to put it in my cupboard.
December 6: Shadow
Shadow or reflection? Thought it is too pretty not to share, the mill in my village.
December 7: 6 O’Clock
6 PM Friday: buying a Christmas tree.
December 8: I shop here.
I don’t like shopping very much, I buy most things online. But 2 or 3 times a year I go to this shop to buy myself something pretty that has won the title “best shop in the Netherlands 2013″. The service is great and the clothes are beautiful. I did buy something and again you’ll have to wait till later this month.
December 9: This is the weather today.
Was home before dark and went immediately for a walk with Bella and was able to shoot the beautiful sky.
December 10: R is for … R. who loves to Race on his Red Ducati that he Restored himself.
Saturday December 7
I used the rammenas for a salad with mushrooms, nuts and goat cheese with honey. I wasn’t impressed with the rammenas, it tastes like radish which I’m not a huge fan of either.
Sunday December 8
Cheese soufflé with a salad of purslane and cherry tomatoes with a mustard dressing.
