Beautiful Day

It’s Friday.

Grey skies from this morning cleared up.

It’s sunny.

It’s +18C here.

What more could I ask for in a Friday afternoon?

Some scenes from my backyard a mere moment ago…

Don’t Look At Me

I’m so embarrassed.  This is what I made today:

And I ate one.

Overall, I’ve been doing much better with my food the last couple of days. I’ve even been back to tracking what I eat in my food diary. We’re going out to dinner tonight and I’ve looked at the menu ahead of time and know what I’m going to order (at Joey – going to order the viva salad)

I thought spring was here last week, but yesterday I awoke to this

Here’s hoping that’s the last of it and we can really welcome spring

Ah, I can feel the heat on my face now.  Definitely going for more walks this summer.  Maybe I’ll even learn to jog?

The lunch

Lunch was a beautiful thing today.

I have been craving avocado.  I wasn’t sure how I wanted to incorporate it in to my lunch, so I cut up 2 really small avocados and threw them in the food processor with a little EVOO, a little fresh squeezed lemon juice, garlic and sea salt.

It was so freaking good. 

I threw it on some whole grain toast with some sliced tomato and cucumber.  Orgasmic.

I followed it up with some mango, flax seed and peach greek yogurt.  Multiple orgasmic.

This was the perfect lunch.

I spent 4 hours today doing work.  I’m working on becoming accredited to be able to provide 2 specific parenting programs.  I spent 4 hours and only got through 17 multiple choice questions.  I have 43 questions left.  Plus 6 role plays to come up with.  My accreditation is March 22nd.  I also have to work full time and provide service to all of my clients before then. 

Excuse me while I go pour another.

Happy Saturday.  Happy weekend!  Cheers!

This Day

A new month begins today.

Today, March 1st, signals the beginning of the end of winter.

Today, I woke up to this:
