FROM MUFFIN TOP TO SKINNY JEANS

Short Mama at Family Of Shorts started this meme and I want in. I want the results.

*

So what are you drinking? Are you sticking to your healthy eating plan and drinking a ton of water? Do you got to have your iced tea? Or are you still sipping on the can of sugar soda?

*

This is perfect for me. I have been succumbing to having a cold beer each day. I got myself some light ones at 100 calories, but I know it would be better to skip the beer and have the calories in good food.

*

I know I have been doing it because I haven’t kept cold tea in the fridge. I like my tea unsweetened also. My doctor recommended at least three cups of nettle tea a day. I usually drink them cold.

*

My favorite is cold weak green tea. I will drink water but would rather have tea.

*

Years ago I lost some weight and was working out. I got a hernia. I know, I pushed it with the weights and that caused it. A contributing factor was, when you lose weight, toxins that were stored in the body fat, are released and weaken your muscles. That is a good reason to drink lots, so you dilute the toxins and they pass out of you faster.

*

To your heath.

Philosphical Differences

OMG, what a challenging time.

*
When Holly at Zahirah’s Kitchen mentioned about the movie THE COVE and problems for dolphins. She gave me a link about the dolphins in captivity. I didn’t get it. I just selfishly thought, Oh no, is this going to be like my rabbit coat?

*
I lived in Brooklyn in the 80’s and bought a white rabbit jacket at a thrift store. It quickly became clear to me that I would be covered with paint if I wore it.

*

I felt aggravated by that. The rabbits used probably fed a family for a month. I wasn’t buying a coat made out of a rare or endangered animal.

*

When I watched THE COVE. I watched it looking for loopholes that would allow me to still go and swim with the dolphins with my grandson. I couldn’t find any. I got very clear and committed about the dolphins.

*

My husband has a lot of sensitivities and I know how challenging it is for him to be comfortable. I relate the plight of the dolphins to what I know of his misery. The dolphins in captivity are stressed and live shorter lives despite having good care.

*

Today, I am spending changing flights and coming up with a fun alternative for my grandson and me for our special time together.

*

I’m envisioning it as an equal or better trip – focus on the better.

*

Spontaneous feelings of happiness are bubbling up.

*

I woke up in the wee hours feeling a lot of anxiety about everything going on right now.

*

An affirmation came to my mind “I am staying on top of things.”

*

It’s working. I am wrapping up details and getting happier by the minute. It’s a deep unshakable happy and I like it.

FROM MUFFIN TOP TO SKINNY JEANS

Short Mama at Family Of Shorts started this meme and I want in. I want the results.

Per Shortmama this week.

This weeks topic comes from my bloggy friend and fellow chick wanting less muffin MiMi at Living in France.

She suggested that we talk about and show how we would dress differently if we were not overweight.

I’m so glad that this week I don’t have to cop to how  compromised  my eating has been.

For many years I have envisioned myself in a wrap dress and I would have my small waist back. It would have an A-line skirt and be knee length. I’d wear flats because that’s me.

I like the one here except I would tie the bow smaller. I would really like to achieve this. Maybe I should buy myself a dress and keep trying it on till I can fit into it. I am going shopping tomorrow. I could put it on when I want to eat carbs.

I am being very challenged today. Please say a prayer for me and my family. Bless you all.

THE COVE

Last night I watched THE COVE. I who cry so easily didn’t even cry.

*

I just became very clear and committed to do what I can to help the dolphins.

*

And that means canceling my Trainer for a day with my grandson, that is coming up next month.

*

Please consider watching THE COVE.

Yesterday my cousin and her husband met us for dinner at the Kona Brewing Company.

*

I enjoyed it completely. I sometimes think I enjoy my solitude too much. It was such a joy to be in the company of people you care about.

*

Good conversation, yummy food and loving — my favorite.

*

I had pepper crusted, seared ahi and Greek salad, and my favorite Pipeline Porter beer made with Kona coffee. Life is good.

Have your best week ever.
