Hi..we're home from a fun trip to Regina and I'm making a little pot of Chai tea, I've never had it before and we're watching hockey..Oilers vs The Kings..tied at 2 in the 2nd :) Go Edmonton....
It was quite cold here again. I helped hubby with chores, taking twine off bales so we could get to Regina by lunch at my sister's. We had a great visit, brother-in-law even asked me if I've lost weight? It's so much fun when people notice :) gotta love it :) Then hubby stayed to visit while sister took me shopping..to Michaels and the super Walmart. I found lots of deals..got a new winter coat, new stainless steel pots, apple corer, silicone steamer, magazine, new chai tea and lots of fruits and veggies and a few treats for hubby and our dog..It came to $179
and I thought I had about $30 left on my last gift card but the cashier said it still had $100 on it so I got all that for $79 :) Then hubby and I went to Chapters and he bought a couple books, then we popped over to Safeway to pick up Chicken and gems for supper when we get home, and I finally got fresh flowers (for the 8 week Dr weil projects) I got a beautiful bouquet of orange mini roses to put in my new kitchen :) for $7.99..When I got them home I was reading on the package the meaning of each color of rose and orange is for desire and enthusiasm.. perfect for my motivation :) who knew?? Now the bad news..hubby bought some donuts at Safeway and of course I had to have a couple so I`m quite over my calories for today ..and I didn`t do the bootcamp..gonna do 2 tomorrow!!!
Hope you`re all having a great weekend!! The chai tea is good lots of clove flavor.
I should quit blogging and finish my tea and watch the game..not so good LA is ahead 3-2...Oh well..that`s hockey for ya!!
Thanks for stopping by for a chat and cuppa tea..Keep on Sparkin` and enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Hi..we're watching a movie..we rented The A-Team on the dish..so I'm having some light lime beer to go with the popcorn..typical movie night :)
It's still quite cold here but at least the winds gone down some. The tractor might be ready tomorrow so we might go to town with the trailer and haul it home..too far to drive it, 20 miles, in this cold.
My back is feeling a lot better so I did the 10 min video for 28 day boot camp and the bonus video of 6 mins upper body on the ball and 30 mins cardio on bike. That and shovelled snow and hauled wood and my back still feels fine. I thought I pulled a muscle but it must have just been strained to be better after one day of rest. Thanks for all the comments and concerns :)
I finished sorting the food in my pantry..an upper cupboard lazy susan. And cooked a huge batch of brown rice and froze in meal size packages, made some jello for a few desserts..hubby has a real sweet tooth..I made him apple crisp for dessert with ice cream. I had my soup for dinner with a salmon wrap I used some left over homemade seafood sauce (ketchup and horseradish) to mix with the salmon. Also had soup for supper with a microwaved egg on a bagel. I'm soaking some beans overnight to make some of Meg's Boston Baked Beans..the recipe is very similar to my regular recipe but hers has ketchup and mine tomato soup. I'll use the crock pot since we'll be gone to town for part of the day.
I realize, looking back over the last few blogs that I'm too focused on food..but I do love to cook and bake and unfortunately, eat. Just now to focus on healthy choices and healthy portions!!! But cooking is a major part of who I am :)
I forgot to include the second week of Dr. weil...project..check out how safe your drinking water is...diet..add more fish, fresh veggies, and whole grains, check out an organic food store and add green tea...supplements...same as week one... exercise...15 mins daily walk...mental/spiritual...connect with nature...one day news fast..continue observing breath cycles..optional..pay attention to mental imagery and take notes .
I think I'm making progress toward my Resolutions and January goals at least I feel like I'm moving forward if only baby steps...
Well enough blogging for tonight...Thanks for stopping by for a chat..keep on Sparkin'..
Cheers..PS the movie is good :)
