A re-visit!

As I was looking at what is no longer permitted in my kitchen I was please to see that I have achieved many of the goals I set before me.

I have no more white flour items in my cupboards. No more coffee shop pastries (actually no more coffee as well).; my snacks are now healthy fruits, veggies and raw crackers. Some sprouts from time to time.

I'm making green smoothies and loving them. My body is changing. Changing what it will accept as far as food goes and changing how my clothes feel. Wonderful!

Heading to bed early tonight...have an early start tomorrow.

Have you looked at your goals lately? How are you doing??

Mid week

I know, once again it's been a long time since I've been here. Alas gone but not forgotten!

Just been very busy with life. A good thing for sure.

Concerts, rehearsals, auditions etc and so much fun.

I have much of my food under control. The exercise is very much a work in progress but again, not forgotten.

Coffee is no longer a part of my life and for the next 28 days there will be no salt shaker on my table. For those of you who know me this is huge!

Each morning now starts with hot water with a slice of lemon followed by a fresh fruit smoothie. No dairy...just fruit. I love it. The weight is hovering but on the average still on a downward trend.

Definitely need a new bathing suit for the summer as well as a few other, smaller things. Great! Can you see me smiling????

Life do I.

How are you doing?

Til again,

The Nation's Capitol

Had to include one of me.

Thought I'd share some pics of our trip down town yesterday.

This weekend was the annual Tulip Festival. The flowers were beautiful. My camera didn't pick up the intensity of the colours.

We're heading out to the movies. I've had a really nice dinner and a great Mother's Day.

Hope all my friends have done something special today for someone they love.

Keeping on...keeping it fresh and simple!

Happy Friday!

I know, it's been a week since you saw me last. Was my week crazy? You betcha! After last weekend's concert I basically went into rest mode. The fatigue is not about the time I spend but the amount of energy that goes into performance. It's invigorating and exciting but it does expend a lot of "me". Talk about burning calories!

This week I've been continuing with lots of fresh fruit and veggies. There's been a few no-no's on my plate this week but not enough to derail me. The coffee is totally gone. The coffee maker is now in the cupboard and we've purchased no bags of the good stuff. lol

Last Saturday I was able to pick up my new bunnies. Winnie and Bobby are now part of our family. So cute and fun! They are 1 1/2 years old, white, angoras! I was told they were litter trained which is true when they stay in their cage...outside of their confines is yet another story!

Been able to relax and get back to my second love which is washing, carding and spinning fiber. I picked up 2 pounds of raw suffolk that is washing up nicely. I find suffolk to be nice and strong for Nick's socks. These wear like iron. Which means they don't need repaired every week. lol

Well, off to enjoy the day. How about you? Ready to face the weekend???

Hi everyone,

I am feeling so much better and am living each day filled with excitement and energy. Possibly a change in my food plan? Perhaps just spring fever? Not sure which but either way it's working for me.

Still losing weight; still caffeine free! WOOHOO!

Love and peace to all!
