Spring is in the air!

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Spring is in the air, though the snow is on the ground
Spring is in the air, though you have to look around
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in the skies.....

It's still cold and snowy - but the emoticon is out today!

Spring is definitely in the air. It's traditional in my family to complete spring cleaning the house before Easter Sunday. This year Easter is very early, so I need to get on with it! (Mantra - "Think of the exercise calories...") After reading one or two blogs on here yesterday, I decided it would be a good idea to extend that spring cleaning to my body.

My healthy living journey has ground to a halt over the last few weeks. It's time to re-assess and kick start my efforts. This morning I have edited my Spark Page and reset weight and exercise goals. I am about to spring clean the kitchen cupboards - anything that is past it's "best before" date is heading for the bin. I was shocked to discover I have spice jars dating back 10 years - and don't ask about the expiry date on certain items in the medicine cabinet! "Stuff" that was bought in a moment of weakness, which has no place in my cupboards, will be deposited elsewhere, either bin, bird table or charity food collection.

I also plan to spring clean my body with a 3 day detox - no caffeine (not a problem - I drink very little coffee/tea), no alcohol (ditto caffeine), no processed food and - my achilles heel - no sugar. I got into the habit of eating like this a few years ago and felt great, although it was hard for the first couple of weeks.

I'm off out for a little walk in the sun now, before it disappears! (There are thick grey clouds rolling in, but I'm deliberately not looking in that direction). Ah, I love spring! *hums jaunty ditty whilst pulling on thick coat, hat 'n scarf and lacing up furry boots*

    Loved your cute poem. Yay, the sun is out!
I did most of my Spring cleaning, just need to clean the carpets. Easter is so early this year.
Hope the sun stayed out for your walk today.

    I have enjoyed seeing patches of blue the last couple of days. It had been a very gray couple of weeks, I am tired of the cold, though. The birds keep giving me hope singing their morning love songs.

It WILL feel like spring; I know it will!
