New month. New business. New Opportunities. Spring is in full swing, unless you’re in Florida. If you’re in Florida, summer has begun! Mid-high 80’s this week. I am not mentally prepared for summer, but it’s here.
April is usually the time I change the color on my toes to something springier. When I take up walking…again. When I enjoy the long days and cool evenings. The cool evenings will be gone soon enough. New beginnings.
April it always a transition month for me. As a child, April often meant an Easter week trip to camp on a beach near Mendocino. Last April my mother passed away. One April, a thousand years ago, I walked out on an abusive relationship. See? Transition.
This April brings new adventures.
I WILL begin walking again. It’s time. I have a brace for my ankle, and I may even have a couple pair of good socks.
I WILL give yoga another try.
I WILL begin my Willing Beauty adventure.
I WILL take better care of myself, and my skin.
That’s a whole lot of adventure kinda stuff I’ve thrown out into the universe!
When I signed up, I was #2282. Over the last few days, I’ve watched that number drop a bit as people ahead of me said, “Ya, this sounded good at the time, but…”
Yesterday the numbers changed every few minutes! I started watching about 9am. I couldn’t help myself. I was fascinated.
By the deadline, I had dropped to #2086. That means since Sunday morning, 196 people ahead of me changed their mind – 95 of which was today. WOWZA!
I never had a second thought about joining. I never had the oh-crap-what-have-I-got-myself-into moment. I’m all in, and I’m excited.
In a few weeks I will have my product. I truly can’t wait to dig in and try it. Why? The affordability of the products plus the proprietary HG+5 Complex plus the fact that I have a BIG secret.
I have no skincare regimen!
What? More on that later. For now, yay me! Counting down the days…
I can’t help myself. I love to take pictures of my food. I love to write about my food. Perhaps I missed my calling. Perhaps I should be a food critic!
Today was all about what to do with the organic avocado that looked SOOOO tasty at the market this morning. I had to have it! I bought an organic potato to go with it. My rationale? An avocado MUST be healthier than butter and sour creme, right? Then I knew I’d need a little more umph with my lunch, so I grabbed a can of Amy’s Organic Medium Chili.
(Note, I don’t always do organic, but I was at the healthy food market and that’s all they had!)
I cooked the potato in a handmade potato bag in the microwave. Yes, you can make these, and they steam up a potato really well! Mine has been used and abused, and is not very pretty, so no photo.
Next I mashed up the avocado with my potato. Mmmm. Then I topped it with half a can of chili and heated it up a bit more. That was my lunch. That and my water with lemon and I was a happy girl. (By the way, the avocado was WAY better than butter and sour creme!)
For my birthday, one of my besties gave me a neat gizmo that holds my water. The lid has two parts – one side is a juicer, and the other a sealing lid! I grabbed a jug of alkaline water and an organic lemon, and had me some yummy water! I need to up my water intake, so this will help a lot.
So there you have it. One simple, tasty, delightful lunch. Bon appetite!
I like this word. I stumbled upon it this week, and keep returning to it. I am in a state of metanoia. This is a good thing.
I am a student of Train Your Brain. I am a student of meditation (or at least trying.) I am taking steps to better myself so I can THRIVE this year, rather than react to the world around me.
Because I love a good baseball analogy, I’m ready to “go to the show!”
