It's almost half way through July. And half way through the "No Junk July" challenge, so it's time for an update.
There have been moments that I have been happy about my actions in regard to the challenge over the last two weeks, and there have been moments when I haven't been so happy!
Overall, I've been more mindful of the food choices that I've been making. In fact, I was very mindful as I whipped up the batch of mini chocolate cupcakes that I had been promising the kids for a few weeks. Oh, they had caramel icing too.

A huge bag of them has now found their way to the bin .. there was no way these were being recycled!
While I was on a roll, I grabbed a few more things and bundled them up to send to Lifeline.

I'm wondering if I clean it out enough I will find this ...
Last weekend was a HUGE de-junk .. we cleaned out the garage and managed to get rid of heaps of rubbish / junk that was just taking up space and gathering dust. It was a relief actually to finally clear some stuff out .. and the garage looks lovely and tidy now! I even have a renewed motivation for my garage workouts!
