How Am I doing?

Is anyone else shocked that we've flown well in to March already? Seriously where does time disappear to? Is there a time eating monster out there whose only job is to eat minutes out of my days so they disappear before I realise they've gone?

As two months of 2012 have already disappeared I thought I might just indulge myself with a little update post all about me. Do you remember this little post back here, where I talked about all the promises that I'd made to myself for 2012?

I'm happy to say I've been doing pretty well so far.  I've been looking after myself well, regular visits to the gym and eating better, 17 llbs lost so far, not earth shattering but its going at a nice slow steady pace which is good and on target for my goal of losing 4 stone this year.
It's nice to buy local too, going to the high street and the local green grocers, coming back with just what you need, and no extra unnecessary packaging that you tend to get lumbered with at the supermarket :)

I've been spending lots of time with friends and family, and plenty of time outdoors too.  The weather has been pretty mild this winter and so far I've done lots of walking and made a couple of weekend trips away which has been great.  There is nothing quite like the fresh air for blowing out the cobwebs!

I don't have a huge amount of disposable cash these days but I have managed to stretch the budget (in aid of supporting the handmade community of course) and have treated myself to a couple of handmade treasures.
I have my eye on a set of glass coasters at the local gallery too, if they are still there when pay day gets here they will be my handmade treat to myself for March.

I'm struggling with my promise not to let the things I can't change worry me, I think worrying is just in my genes, but I'm working on it. 

Not a bad start I think, let's hope I can keep it up.

You've done really well with the weight loss, it can be difficult when you're on your own. Hope pay day comes quickly enough for your treat

Congratulations on your successes, way to go Angela. I know exactly what you mean about the time eating monsters. Time just flies like crazy. Enjoy what's left of March.

well done!! You are a great inspiration. have a week off at the end of March with no plans so now I will take up your idea of going out and about - it's something I keep 'thinking' about but never do as I also struggle with finances. But now I am determined to spend as much of the week out in the fresh air (hopefully by the sea) as possible!!

Congratulations on all of the changes! I picture you sitting back with a cup of tea, watching nature, smiling and saying "Ahhhh, this is GOOD!"

I think 17lbs is a humungus amount - well done! Love the picture of the highland cow - theres something rather adorable about shaggy cattle!! Hope you get your other handmade treat at the end of March!

Yes Time flys by way too quick for my liking. Well done on going to the gym & getting healthier. :-) I am on the same road and also doing well. ;-)

It sounds like you're doing very well. :) I'm trying to slim down for my wedding this August, so I'll keep you company on the weight loss.
