Friday Thoughts and Things.



It’s Friday, que the angels singing!

I’ve had a rough week: dealing with Pookah having a bad cold, then me catching the cold of top of that.

And as we all know, when Mama is down, the rest of the house goes downhill. Last night, the kitchen was so bad that I had to appeal to the man of the house to PLEASE take care of it. PLEASE.

My kitchen was spotless when I woke up this morning.

I finished up my 10 day Green Smoothie cleanse. I lost a total of 7 pounds. It remains to be seen, as I go back to eating normally, if that was water weight or what. But I do feel lighter and I am not as bloated or heavy.  It’s not something I would do all the time, or even that long again. But I would consider it again in a modified version.

I just finished working out today and I’m trying to make it a habit again. My back has been hurting and stiff all week and I know that one of the main reasons for that is lack of activity. So cold and all, I got on my elliptical this morning and worked out. Because…well it’s necessary.  I’m going to be trying to eat healthier too. Because diets really just don’t work for me. I diet, then go back to eating the same as before. So no. I’m on a eat healthy mission. One day, one meal at a time. With exercise. That’s all I can do.

I’m still off of coffee( for now), but I did venture into Starbucks yesterday to try Oprah’s Chai. I love Chai tea. Normally. But Oprah’s Chai? I’ll pass.

It’s mother’s day this Sunday,so Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful Mom’s who read my site.  May your day be filled with sleeping in, going to the bathroom by yourself, feeling the love of your children and eating a meal that you didn’t have to cook.

And if you are a photographer like me, be sure to check out my Article over at Kokoa Magazine about Mother’s Day gifts for MWAC( Mom’s With A Camera).

Enjoy your weekend!

    I’m so proud of you for completing the 10 day Green Smoothie Cleanse! I’ve kept my weight off that I lost by getting back active in the gym, 3 months strong and I feel a whole lot better! And my weight loss is noticeable, especially with my coworkers!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you! Enjoy your day, you deserve it!

    My scale is going in the wrong direction! Outside of a swim lesson, I didn’t do any exercise last week. I know skipping one week can easily turn into a month with me so I hit the gym yesterday.
    You’ve got me thinking, seriously, about doing a cleanse. I think I’ll start with 3days.
    Happy Mother’s Day to you!! Enjoy, relax and do NOTHING!

    Proud of you for getting through it sis! I tried a green smoothie for the first time last week. Um…..yeah. I’m gonna need to improve my recipe because I was not a fan. At all. And nope, I don’t mess with Chai too much. Starbucks owns part of my wallet.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you too! I missed nearly every day of the gym this week. I asked for everyone to just let me go to the gym on Mother’s Day and that’s what better happen!
