Hi..I found this interesting article in a newspaper I was reading...
"Each day is a new beginning, an opportunity to write your own happy ending"
Five simple and inexpensive suggestions to get you started...
Eat nutritious food :)
Consume the ultimate drink..water :)
Discover something new :)
Get moving :)
Take time to relax :)
All good points..the article included recipes, books and web sites , get moving ideas and ideas to relax, too.
Well happy Saturday everyone,,. this will be a quick blog as I have half an hour til the movie I'm watching tonight starts..I rode my bike for 30 minutes, caught up on some phone visits, lost at cribbage ..again...
I finished up my deer veggie soup for lunch and made round steak, onions and BBQ sauce in the crock pot for supper with green beans and mashed potatoes.
After chores hubby worked on my car to see why the radio and clock didn't work..after checking a lot of fuses he went back and tried it and it works now?!?
I'm wondering what kind of soup I should make for the up coming week? any suggestions? Lets see the first week I think I made turkey veggies ; then I made beef, barley and veggie; then chicken veggie noodle and this week has been the deer veggie....maybe just regular veggie..I have quite a few veggies I can use...
I know for sure some of my February plans will include, in favor of Valentines Day and heart month, ways to bless my heart..amp up exercise, eat more red fruits and veggies, focus on love..what are you going to be working on for February? I look forward to read other peoples blogs..one of my new favorite habits...
Thanks for dropping by for a chat and tea..I'm off to make a little pot of yesterdays pomegranate superfruit tea..it was really good..Keep on Sparkin'

Hi..I'm enjoying the new tea I bought in Williston yesterday..it's Good Earth Pomegranate Superfruit..green tea, pomegranate and cherry..yum yum :)
We had a fun day at Williston and the weather was great..40+ F and melting everywhere..a bit warmer than here..my south for the winter 1 day holiday :)
We had lunch in Plentywood (I had salad bar and a grilled chicken burger) Then we shopped in Williston..I found the All You Health and Fitness magazine in Walmart, and Feb's regular All You. I bought some t-shirts and exercise Capri pants, some oven mitts, pot holders and kitchen towels to match the kitchen redo. I found some groceries too Kashi cereal, tea, bread on sale, etc. Hubby found some stuff to get, too. Then we stopped for pizza at Plentywood on the way home.
Today I rode the bike for 30 minutes and helped hubby get my car out of the snowbank. Then I went to town for some mail, banking and catfood. I went to the second hand store there and found a new tea pot and a china cup and saucer for special tea time..I'm using it now, 2 wine glasses, a vase and a Gary Zukav book called Soul Stories..all for $6 :) Got drinking water, too..it was so windy out even the full 5 gal. jugs tried to blow away!! Now it's really cooling down..going to be very cold for a few days.
Today I had some more of the homemade soup and a beef wrap, then supper was fish and gems for hubby and I had fish and a spinach salad and green beans. I had lots of fruit today too..so it was a good day for food tracking :) I've only had 3 days in January that my calories were over :) I've been keeping up my streaks of exercise, water, logging in for points and blogging :) January is right on track plus I've lost all the December weight I had gained (4-5 pounds) and am ready to rock February!!
I've been planning for February goals and getting ready for January's recap.. stay tuned..thanks for stopping by for a chat and tea..keep on Sparkin'

Hi..relaxing for the evening watching hockey and having lime light beer :) I got lots of cardio in today..rode bike for 40 minutes and shovelled snow of 30 minutes. Hubby was clearing the snow up by the house with the snow blower and loader, so I moved the 2 trucks out of the way, we couldn't get the car started, the battery was dead and it has a flat tire :) I haven't driven it since middle of November..so it's still in a snow bank. We also shovelled the snow off the trampoline since the springs looked quite stretched. Then I helped with night chores, too.
I had more of the deer veggie soup for lunch..made hubby chicken fried steak and gravy and baked potato. I made bread machine bread this afternoon, which we had for supper with the roast beef and roast veggies..potatoes, onions, carrots, and parsnips...drizzled with olive oil, spices and parsley. We had cantaloupe for dessert :)
The nice weather is supposed to be here for a few more days so tomorrow we are going to Williston, ND for a quick get away..just shopping for the day. It's just a bit farther than Regina in the opposite direction..I hope to buy the All You magazine that features Spark people..it's not available at Canadian Walmarts..I have subscribed but it'll take a long time to get the first issue. I'm looking forward to my day off the farm :)
Edmonton is loosing the hockey game :( ..I'm done my beer and I should end this blog..Thanks for stopping by for a chat , etc, Keep on Sparkin'
