The Flower Power ~ Peonies

I love flowers! So colorful and cheerful, flowers are a beautiful, refreshing and inexpensive way to dress up the house. It is kind of like adding a bright yellow scarf to a gray dress.  I occasionally treat myself with a beautiful bunch of seasonal flowers that I pick up while grocery shopping, and, whenever I walk into the house or a room with fresh flowers, I always think to myself ~ how pretty! So, why not make it a habit to always have fresh flowers in the house and think how pretty more often.

Healthy Snacks For Women On The Go



After I figured out the winning formula of losing weight last Monday, I got in the car and drove to work. I placed my coffee in the cup-holder and peanut butter sandwich on my knees and drove off. (Amazingly, it is still legal!) I anticipated a very busy day... and it was, I did not even have a second to stop for a quick lunch or at least a cup of tea.

So the peanut butter sandwich that I ate and two bottles of water I had with me had to carry me for... 12 hours. When I finally finished my work for the day, I could not wait to get home for dinner ~ I stopped by a restaurant and had a giant dinner with... yet another set of fries.  Even worse, the dinner was consumed within 10 minutes! HAPIfork would not be very happy with me if I used it. Agh!

I had a beautiful and relaxing Sunday, and it came at the perfect time because I had a busy week. And, unfortunately, busy equals...  junk food!

Take Life By The Reins



I really am not sure how I came to the decision to try horseback riding. I mean, my therapist suggested me to get a hobby - something that would relax me, and I chose to take on horseback riding... never mind the fact that I was terrified of the idea of getting on a horse... Sometimes I surprise myself with my strange logic.
