Sailor jerrys and ginger beer

Cheers and Happy New Year yet again! I hope the first couple of days of 2015 have treated you well. We had a quiet NYE at my parents house with the little man. I was happy I managed to stay awake until midnight and say goodbye to what was an incredible year, as well as welcoming a new year I’m really excited about!

Move

Planks

Basically I’ve done nothing until I started the plank a day challenge on New Years Day! I’ve been loving it, especially all the people joining in with me on Facebook and Instagram! Next week I’ll be starting to tackle my goal of working out 3 times a week, wish me luck!

Wear

Outfit stripy top and bfjeansBiker jacket: Warehouse, gold anchor necklace: Not On The Highstreet, stripy top: Warehouse, boyfriend jeans: H&M, converse

Since we had such a relaxed NYE I haven’t dressed up much, just nice chilled out outfits like this one I wore for going shopping.

I’ve been getting myself super organised using my Shining Year workbooks and calendar but also a new technique I’m using as well, and so far it’s working, although we are only 4 days into the month! I do feel a lot more focused which has to be good! James and I have chatted about how we are going to manage things with Finley and sleep, we are also going to aim to have a date night once a month if my parents don’t mind watching him for a couple of hours. James is also going to take him for an extended period a couple of nights a week and give him a pumped bottle so I get a decent stretch every now and again. Also…

Getting in a big healthy food shop! I’m still not a massive fan of online grocery shopping as I like to wonder round the isles and pick out nice things. However since I was pregnant online shopping as been a godsend in terms of time. I have a full fridge freezer and cupboards and today I’m hoping to have a big cook up session and prepare lots of meals and snacks for the week ahead. Also...

Sending out my latest newsletter, I really enjoyed writing it! // reading How to be a hip mama without losing your cool – this book really spoke to me and it was so helpful reading the stories of other women I can relate to // sales shopping, I’ve got some great bargains and really updated my wardrobe! // fitting into some old jeans I haven’t worn for ages // James baby wearing Fin, so adorable! // that New Year fresh start feeling // Finley, always Finley :-)

How have the first few days of 2015 been for you? Do you like to get in a big healthy food shop?

    Happy new year! I must say I love online shopping- our delivery pass means we can only get deliveries Tues-Thurs (well we can on other days, but then have to pay) and as we only got home on New Years Eve it meant we could not book a shop. So on Friday I went shopping and it was just awful- so many people, such huge queues. I had a few things to do to (had to pick up a deliver to store thing for Andy, and exchange something) but I was gone for 3 hours- not for me!

    I love the After Eight smoothie! Do you have Shakeaway in Durham? Sounds like a healthier version of the mad shakes I used to get there! I may have to make a mint Poppet version ;)

      There used to be a Shakeaway but it closed down! Probably a good thing considering all the things I used to eat at uni ;)

    What a lovely post. It sounds like you’ve got a great plan for your year with regards to being a mama and having ‘you’ time too :)
    You’ve just reminded me I forgot to buy clementines today :( I’ll just have to stare at the screen instead… so yum!

    Great looking food Laura! Happy 2015! Fantastic to have come up with a plan now Finley is recovered, I think having some nights each week where you can get a proper rest and decent sleep is brilliant.

    Woohoo for your planking challenge! Nice progress :)
    I love the look of your chunky lentil soup and the feta salad – well I love all the look of your foods as normal! Except for the porridge – I’m a porridge purist ;-) Hehe
    That’s a great idea about James helping out with feeds occasionally and the date nights – always important!

    Happy New Year! That Sailor Jerry glass is so cute! I’ve been doing my daily planks too, they’re so tough but that’s a definite sign that I’ve been neglecting them for too long! x

    I did a big Ocado and Abel and Cole shop over the weekend as we had been away for 10 days and had nothing in the house when we came back! I think online shopping is quite useful for that purpose rather than lugging enormous amounts of bags home! I need to get some planking going too!
