7/31 Day challenge

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

December 7th was my 7th day of this challenge ,I have lost 1" and 2 Lb. emoticon
I am doing my best to eat the right foods in the right amounts ,I am however allowing myself 1 piece of Lindts chocolate squares (if I need one) emoticon I did however have an Irish coffee for desert on our Anniversary.

I have also discovered that I feel better if my protein intake is for breakfast and lunch,for dinner I usually have just a salad ( a big one) or veggie soup or both.
I sleep much better to,at least per my fitbit anyway, not so much tossing and turning. emoticon

I am also more consistent with my gym activities. I did hurt my Achilles tendon so no running for a while, but there is walking and elliptical I can do.
emoticon weight training also every other day. emoticon

I also got me a balance ball emoticon for exercise and I sit and balance on it when on the computer, great for my posture. LOL

Now I start the next 7 days to see where it takes me. emoticon

Art show downtown.

Sunday, November 09, 2014

A friend and I went to the Downtown festival and art show.
It is held 2 times a year and it has improved a lot in the last few years.
There is only a few photos ,some of the artists did not want their work photographed.
At the beginning of our walk, and then there was some very nice artworks


t is amazing to me ,what they can do with a piece of metal and get all those beautiful colors.
I also scored a Christmas present from DH

A Jacket and matching pants.
on the way from the show we saw this

Also all metal work. a bit odd ,the cacti and palms were higher than me and my friend.
we had a lovely time.
Sorry some of the photos are side ways . emoticon

    Incredible art work ! - I like that Jacket :) - I have to agree that many artist do care if their pieces are being photo'd - while in Sedona last week I ran into that same issue yet , I create stained glass and many of my ideas come from my photos so I guess I can understand the artists point of view.
I would love to have those palm trees right now as I am back in Chicago - back to reality :)

    How I wish I was there. I love metal art work. The piece of art sticking out by the road is something to look at. It might not be in my yard, but interesting to look at. I might have bought the bronze looking leaves. Your Hubby is a sweetie. I like your Christmas gift. I have never seen metal Palms before. Cool. The Pumpkin is good too.
What a great day!! emoticon

    The idea should work, but unfortunately too many big cooperations will prevent it from happening on a large scale. Food, medicine are run by huge groups which have so much control over over the situation it probably won't spread. I wish it would. I wish there was more programs like this.

    I was shocked to see that "as of 2010 diet has surpassed smoke as the leading cause of death in America."
Thanks for sharing, great video.
