Well it has been yet another lovely month, I can’t believe that it is November already, not long until Christmas now!

At the start of the month I had set myself a few goals including getting my diet on track, reducing coffee down a bit and meditating more. I feel like I’ve done pretty well with these although there is definitely room for improvement. I have meditated but could do with giving myself the space to do this more. I have also dropped my coffee consumption down to about three / four times a week. We have also made a start on decorating by starting to clear out a lot of the clutter ready for actually getting down to business this month.

For me, October has been all about the pumpkin and squash! I just can’t get enough…Pumpkin collage

I’ve enjoyed pumpkin spice smoothies, pumpkin scrambles, pumpkin oats and pumpkin protein pudding not forgetting my Thai Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup!

I’ve also posted recipes for Squash and Chard Frittata, High Protein Spelt Wrap and 3 Ingredient No Bake Protein Bars. I definitely think I enjoy my food at this time of year more than any other!


Earlier in the month I gave you a bit of an update on how things are going for me on a more personal level in my Baby I was born this way post:

In that post I talked about eating meat again and this month I have enjoyed experimenting with wild salmon, organic chicken and organic beef, all of which seem to be suiting me pretty well.

October Faves

Here’s a little vid with a few of my October faves – and some random mumblings as usual ;-)

As I say in the vid, I have set up a Products I Love Pinterest Board where I can add my favourite products with a mini review. I realised that there are a lot of products and brands I swear by and that would be a good way for me to share them with you and keep notes for myself!



Oh November I do love you but you are going to be a busy one for me! I have some major things happening this month including:

  • A very exciting trip to London next week – I can not wait to tell you all about that!
  • Redecorating the flat
  • Moving offices at work
  • Running a weekend programme for a local youth council
  • Hopefully getting KHGS redesigned!
  • Preparing for Christmas and all that comes with it
  • Continuing with my IIN studies

With all of that going on, my goal for November is a pretty simple one:

  • Do my best and chill!

If I manage to achieve all of those things above while remaining sane and keeping my daily healthy practices in tact I will be more than satisfied!
