Checking In

I have one hell of a couple of weeks. I am now officially OLD....ok well maybe not old but I have hit my 30's. And despite my initial freak outs, I think I've taken it in my stride. On top of that I had a fantastic birthday spent with my family and friends. There has been a little bit too much celebrating going on and its time to reign it in A LOT! Its not over yet, I have a special bank holiday weekend coming up, heading for a romantic night down in The Cliff House in Waterford. This was myself and Conor's birthday present to ourselves, and it will be 2 days of delicious food and I am going to enjoy every mouthful. I have not gotten back on track fully since my birthday and I am up a couple of pounts, so with only 3 days to go before Cliff House what do I do?

I've been doing a bit of soul searching the last few weeks. It's been hard to find my motivation and I am losing my balance more and more as the weeks go back. So I am going back to basics this week and searching for my motivation. Why did I start this journey in the first place.

So courgetti (or zoodles as the americans know them as)! Just over a year ago I gave this my first go with a bit of courgette tagliatelle - it was good but I knew then that I needed either a julienne peeler or a spiralizer to make it really compare to real pasta. Over the past year I have looked at these on Amazon more times than I can remember but for some reason never actually ordered one. And last week in Dunnes there was the julienne peeler I have been double checking for in every shop for the past year!
