So today I did what I said I was going to do, I made my first ever gingerbread house. I really need to make two batches but I ran out of ingredients so I just made a small gingerbread hut. It stuck together ok with the icing I made, but it wasn’t white, all I used was egg white and icing sugar, but I think it was special icing sugar so I’ll have to go back to old faithful.
I know it looks a bit lame, but its a start and next time I plan to make it bigger and even decorate it.
I’ve also managed to cook up a big batch of pumpkin soup for this week, and hopefully I’ll manage to make some risotto tomorrow.
Despite sleeping in until 12 today, I don’t think I’ve done too bad, and now I have some time for some pilates, yoga, and some abs and pushups before I cook dinner and have a shower ready for work.
It’s easy to sit back and complain about how unorganised my life is, and how bad I feel about my weight and eating habits. But, today I managed to make some progress towards Christmas (the gingerbread gift idea I have), and prepare a healthy grab and go meal for my afternoons this week, plus I’m about to work out. I also caught up on the washing while I was cooking.
I didn’t get any sewing done, but that’s now tomorrow’s task.
Focus on what you can do, not what you can’t.
