I’m having a moment and may have shed a tear or two (I’m such a sook), my twinnies Mr and Miss 11 are both at high school orientation today. Far out time passes so quickly. When I started the blog they were in grade 2.

Does anybody have a favourite Beef Jerky (in dehydrator) recipe they could share? My family have kindly requested I make some this weekend. I have purchased an Excalibur 9 Tray Dehydrator with 26 Hour Timer a few weeks ago, they are currently ON SALE!! I purchased mine from here.  View my fruit roll up recipe here.

I’m starting an 8 week challenge from tomorrow with my trainer @thinkfitwithdeb I’m determined to get over this 10 month plateau, it’s my goal before Christmas to find movement in the scales again 2-5kg would be nice. 10kg is what I need to lose though. I’m upping my exercise and completely watching what I eat. A part of our challenge is to take a photo of the number on the scales each week and share for accountability… love it!! are you on a weightloss mission before Christmas? #nomakeup #determined

Hey Kat.. Good luck with your 8 week challenge… you are a strong, focussed woman and I believe this will happen for you. You have inspired me to look after myself better and so I too am embarking on a exercise and better eating plan. Should be easier with all the summer salads in season again. (Thats my positive thinking… ????). I love the 20 day challenge and your daily emails. Thank you!!!
