Happy Halloween

30 Oct

Happy Halloween! Have fun and dont be afraid to dress up or even go trick or treating.

My daughter is going to be Catty Noir from Monster High. The costume we got her is really cute and she can wear it for a few more years. Yea!

My husbands company Might be getting sold so there is panic and stress at work and even with his coworkers who are worried about their jobs. Which I do understand but, it is not a done deal yet so I guess I am not quite getting the need to panic and stress of course I have not been in the work force for 6+ years so who am I to judge?

Today I got two new books from the library which have been on my amazon list for awhile. As you know free is sooo much better than having to pay for a book let alone keeping it.

I know the holidays are coming up and I am done except for getting a gift for my husband but, I do NOT want to get him yet another book (he has about 15-16 boxes of books now and counting) and I do NOT want to get him yet another DVD again he has most of a shelf on a bookshelf that is two deep. So I am stuck as to what to get him and am not sure if what he needs is actually a need. If anyone can give me a few suggestions I would LOVE to hear them.

Fall weather

2 Oct

We have now hit fall weather. It has been in the mid 60s to mid 50s. It has been a bit unsettling. I love fall with the beauty of the leaves falling but,am not a huge fan of all the rain we have been getting it makes the mid 60s feel even colder.
Whats your favorite season?
Today my daughter was supposed to have a field trip to a local orchard which would have been a lot of fun for us both but, unfortunately it was cancelled due to the rain. I really hope that the weather is better next week since it will be fall break for my daughter. I really want to do a few outdoorsy type of things with her.
I have been losing weight and am loving my new body. My jeans fall off me without a belt and I feel better and lighter. It also helps doing yoga poses. I can hold them longer if I want to. If you struggle with your weight I have one suggestion have some yogurt for every breakfast with some quick oats, flax oil or flax seed meal, some honey or even agavi nectar, and a bit of lemon juice. It keeps me full until lunch time and has helped me to lose the weight I need to. I feel better and have more energy. If you want add a piece of fruit with it as well. Remember portion control I usually add about 3-6 teasoons of yogurt and I dont fill the bowl up to the top even with all the add ins. I have been eating a “French” breakfast and rarely will I splurge and have frozen waffles or even vegan breakfast sausage. Try this for one month and just see if you start to feel better. Plus this strangely simplifies my life because every day I know what I am having for breakfast. I also throw in once a week a smoothie for breakfast just to break up having the same thing every day.
Enjoy your weekend and take some time out to see the fall leaves.
