Can you believe it? It’s July! Where has this year gone?
On Saturday we’re off to Cape Town to visit with family and friends and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s been a year and a half since our last family holiday, so this one feels LONG overdue. My girls are besides themselves with excitement. We’ve been counting down the sleeps for the last 3 weeks and finally, there is only one more sleep left!
Of course, when I get back from holiday, the real slog starts. Work will be frantic over the next few months because the build up for peak season starts now. I’m already up to my eyeballs in Christmas planning and professionally my life will be insane. You’d think I’d be used to it by now, I’ve been with the same company for 11 years, this is my 12th festive season with my company and but I still feel my anxiety flutter to life just thinking about what lies ahead in the next few months.
Success – remember my little banting manifesto I made a couple of week’s ago. Well I didn’t quite hit my target of 5kg’s in 2 weeks, but I did do it in 3 weeks so OORAH and yay me! I’ve been so touched and encouraged by the messages I’ve received from you readers, about how my journey has inspired you. I think as bloggers, that is our holy grail, to know that somewhere out there, we have touched, encouraged or inspired someone. For those of you who are joining me on this banting journey to better health, I say thank you. Feel free to contact me at any time and also look at the banting archives on my blog, there are two years worth of archives there to help you on your way.
Watching – Bloodlines!
A few people have raved about it, I’m only about two episodes in, but I am intrigued. Have you watched it, what were your thoughts? It has an incredible cast and it is a Netflix original so I’m expecting great things!

Reading – Nothing worth getting excited about! Book recommendations are welcome. I’m really hoping to have some time to get some good reading in these holiday!
Excited About – Me Before You movie releasing soon. I know it releases while I’m on holiday but I have nagged the hell out of my girlfriends to read the book and to wait for me, so we can all watch it together!

I’m not sure I’ll have much time to do any blogging while I’m away, so be sure to follow me on social media and we’ll catch up when I’m back!
