2017 Mein Bestes Jahr – Was Willst Du Erreichen?

2016: Ich habe das ganze Jahr mit meinen Gedanken gekämpft; Diäten angefangen, Pintrest Boards mit gesunden Rezepten gefüllt und sporadisch Sport gemacht. Aber nichts hat auf Dauer geholfen. Frustriert und verzweifelt suchte ich immer wieder in der tiefen, breiten Netzwelt nach Antworten bis ich von Nicole und Susanne, die zwei Gründerinnen von dem Buch „Mein Bestes Jahr 2017“ gefragt wurde, was 2017 zu meinem besten Jahr machen würde? Ob ich bereit wäre darüber zu schreiben? Nun ja, eigentlich wäre ich gerne viel tiefsinniger und hätte über Weltfrieden schreiben wollen aber ich bin nun mal ich und ich merkte (und durch die Aufgaben in dem Life & Workbook wurde es deutlich bestätigt), dass ich am Meisten mit meinem Fitness zustand unzufrieden bin.

Just one peek at the World Health Organisation (WHO) website is enough to send you running for the treadmill, children in hand.

„In 2013, 42 million infants and young children were overweight or obese.“ (Source WHO)

Hosting A Clothes Swap Party 🇬🇧

Working within a strict budget now we have two children means more than ever that I put my needs last, which sometimes means I walk around looking a little well-worn! I try my best, but years of snot wiping and baby vomit, (not to mention a changing body shape) can really take their toll on my clothes. This is why I was curious about the (potentially cringe-worthy) clothes swap my friend was hosting. It was also a chance to get rid of some of the bad buys lurking in the back of the wardrobe and give up some of the „probably never again“ clothes I was holding onto and which glared at me guiltily everytime my mum-bod gazed at them.

"More new clothes? What happened to the old ones?"
„This old thing?“
