No-junk July

It's July already? Where did those last six months go? O_O

This month I've joined Liz and a few other bloggers in a bit of a challenge: No-junk July. I'm focusing mainly on food, but the no-junk approach can be applied to other areas of your life too. Frankly, I just don't have time for any major clean-ups right now, so I'm keeping my challenge simple.

I joined in a day late, as by the time I became aware of the challenge on Sunday, I was on my second glass of wine and there may have been some ice cream in the freezer with my name on it. *ahem*

So my aim is to cut out any "junk" in terms of chocolate, cake, alcohol and the like, plus avoid processed foods, which tend to contain their own kind of "junk" in the form of preservatives, colours, trans fats and other less than desirable ingredients.

So far, so good.


School holidays started this week, which normally means a reduction in the stress of the morning rush because I don't have to nag a kid out of bed, or detour via the school and I can leave for work earlier. As it happens though, The Baby has been rostered on at his part time job for 7:00am starts. O_o  So, I'm leaving home at 6:30am and arriving at work before the sun's even appeared over the horizon.

On the plus side, I'm rapidly knocking down my overdrawn flex time, I'm far more productive first thing before all the distracting people arrive/ring/email and the lighter traffic means I'm cutting half an hour off my trip.

Not quite my dream job:

But I couldn't have the cupcakes in no-junk July anyway, so it's probably just as well.

Blogging is on the back burner until I get my routine back to some semblance of normality, so I may be more absent than present for the rest of the week...

No Junk July sounds very pro-active! I will try and do that too. Have a good week. Mx

I'm going to devote July to un-junking the house. Now, how can I politely ask people to come and take their crap back that we were storing while their house was on the market?
