You Win Some, You Lose Some!

I wish I would have written a post last week to celebrate reaching a total loss of 10 pounds. Then again, if I’d done that, I would have to hide the fact that this week, I gained 7….. There’s something funky happening: this week, I am 7 pound up from where I was just 1 week ago, which was 3 down from the week before! I started to see a dietician 2 weeks ago and she is tracking my weight weekly. Although I celebrated my birthday (over 2 days!!) and then traveled most of the week, therefore enjoying great restaurants & cocktail parties, I didn’t expect such gain. However, in the last 2 weeks, I lost 1 inch around my waist and hips. How do you explain that???? I think I’ll just disregard this week’s weight and I’ll wait for next week to get alarmed. I haven’t gone back to the last belt hole yet, so there’s hope for me! After eating out for many days, I was glad to be home and be juicing again for breakfast! These carrots, apple and a chunk of beet never tasted so good! And today, I made a very tasty soup for lunch: onions, carrots, navy beans, sweet potatoes, orzo pasta and Banger sausage in chicken broth and used Ancho chile pepper powder and some Mexican Oregano I got in California last month. Very tasty!! Oh and I also bought some Dalmatian Sage; does anyone knows what to do whith that? I never use sage other than in stuffing so suggestions would be welcomed!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Look at the wonderful (and delicious!!) gift I received at work from Joan and Patsy! It's made by Edible Arrangements and it's full of fruits skewers! So thoughtful and the girls know that I'm watching what I eat so they ask for just a few strawberries dipped in chocolate, and not milk chocolate but dark because they know that's what I prefer!! I'm very lucky! The picture doesn't show how big and full it was because by the time I took it, half of the fruits were already in my belly!! It was really stunning and I know I make many jealous when I walked throught the plant with my special delivery!! Thanks again girls and I hope we'll be lucky with our lottery ticket tonight!
I also received calls galore, cards, e-wishes and care packages full of happy wishes. Thank you all for thinking of me!

SoPoBoMo is Starting Today!

The Solo Photo Book Month project is starting today! The goal is to take 35 photos during 31 days and to “publish” it in a virtual book. It’s open to anyone and thanks to Jamie for the suggestion; I thought I’d give it a shot. I barely finished my online course from the FIT than I was signing up for this project 5 minutes later!! Couldn’t I just take it easy??? My photos are not that great but isn’t it the intention that count? My problem will be to try to stick to one subject; I tend to scatter my thoughts….This my first photo for the project.
