Short and sweet since the school session started with a vengeance.
The scale is moving down! My pants are falling off. I’m happy, have more energy, and eating better than I have in a long time. Yes, I’m cooking more, but I’m still cooking ahead so it’s easier to grab and go.
Longer posts are coming.
Bye for now.

Are you hungry now?
Yes, it was a good Christmas.
We kicked it off with a killer breakfast – pancakes, eggs, ham, and sausage for the omnis; tofu, green pepper, red onion, and Soyrizo scramble for me; biscuits and berry salad for all. It was lovely. While the coffee warmed our souls and awakened our senses, the unwrapping commenced. The kiddos scored games, hubby scored Stephen King books, and the dogs scored bones. I scored cookbooks! :squee: While cookbooks may not appeal to all, they make me giddy.
Be on the lookout for post and pics from The 30 Minute Vegan’s Taste of the East, Appetite for Reduction, and Viva Vegan in addition to goodies from Everyday Happy Herbivore, meals and snacks from Tess Challis‘ books, and whatever inspires me that day.
Today’s inspiration is due to the rainy weather outside. Bright colors are required, so Mexican will be on the dinner plate.
Until later, peace.
This quote is from Raw Soul – kick-butt recipes in there. It hit me hard when I read it. I always tell other people that they need to take care of themselves but put myself last. Granted I’m doing better than I have in the past, but I still put everything and everyone else before me.
I take time to cry through my physical therapy exercises, meditate, and to cook well for us all, but I don’t nurture myself. I don’t see my down time as anything other than a necessary break. I need to see it as something special.
For a week, starting today, I will nurture myself. Let’s see how much of a difference it makes.
On another note, hubby’s sick and doing his damnedest to share the germs.
Got in a 15 minute walk and my 8MM day two! I’m not sure what I’m having for breakfast this morning. I threw together a lunch for hubby and am thinking toward lunch and dinner. I’m getting hungry, so I have to eat something. I’m leaning toward either a smoothie or grits and an egg.
Yep, still struggling with veganism. It would help if I’d remember to grab certain things at the store. Like tofu & TVP. It would help more if Publix carried TVP so I wouldn’t have to go to Whole Foods or Earth Fare where I’m tempted to buy a little of everything.
DSS will be here to see his new room and get it the way he wants it! I was kind of worried he’d have to go back to his mom’s before we could get it just right, but nope! Yeah!
9 days until closing. OMG!
