Has anyone out there ever had a skinny feeling day? It's the strangest thing imaginable. Without weight issues, I never really thought about my weight or how it made me feel until 3 years ago when I started gaining weight. Over those 3 years I learned how "chunky" felt and then habituated to that until that was my normal.
Yesterday I felt energetic and slender. I have no idea why. I'm a tortoise of a looser, Sparking for about 1 1/2 years with only a 20 lb loss. This is not a complaint merely an observation. Any loss is a fine loss. My point is that there's still plenty of meat on the old girl's bones, but for some reason it wasn't in my way yesterday.
Perhaps this is how being fit feels and I just took it for granted before. If this is the case, sign me up. This is all the motivation I need to keep me going.

I tried to enter this as a spark recipe but it was too tiresome a project. They only have basil measured in Tbs, # of leaves, or grams.
4 c. Fresh Basil Leaves
4 c. Fresh Spinach Leaves
2 T. fresh lemon juice
4 cloves garlic
1 c. pine nuts
1 1/2 c. shredded Parmesean Cheese
1/2 c. olive oil
3/4 c. fat free half & half
Toss all ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Serve tossed with pasta, as a sandwich spread, or over grilled meats, fish, or chicken.

I've had two really fun but crazy hectic days. I was helping out with the elections in Delaware most of the day yesterday, had children with sports, and several routine home and health things to tend to, and a tub that sprung a leak just when I thought it was time to relax. Today, a few small things with relatives to tend to, car maintenance, sports games, a child's doctor's appointment, a guitar lesson, and parent night at a son's youth group. Both days I think I was home for a total of 10 -20 minutes max and not home for good until 8:30 at night.
Yesterday was tragic for nutrition. Campaign food is pure garbage. Today I literally ate cold Golean waffles and V-8 juice in my car for lunch and dinner. It was so hard to eat properly when I was constantly on the go. I'm not whining, this is the life I've chosen and it's so good.
Life is such a balancing act isn't it. A few days of chaos, a few days of relative calm. The benefit is in the learning to do the best I can when I can.
I have a lot to learn but I'm a willing student.
