Morning Magic


Thursday, August 15, 2013



I love the early mornings. This morning I was outside around 6AM. I love the sound of morning . . . roosters, squirrels, birds . . . .

This morning brought some special early morning visitors.... 3 yearling deer came over to check me out. We stood there, about 10 feet apart, separated by the fence . . . it was magical.

I came back into the house and hunted around in the compost from making dinner last night, found some green veggie scraps and offered it to them for breakfast. Love to watch their twitchy noses!!!!



DH brought home a couple zucchini grown by a co-workers . . . I think I'll turn them into a yummy Spark Recipe - maybe the chocolate zucchini protein bars or brownies. For sure, it will be something 'legal'!!!



I'm still feeling fat, bloated. But I refuse to be discouraged. Regaining the ground that I've lost (by regaining 5 pounds that I've lost) isn't happening as easily as it did initially.

Starting over isn't as easy as just saying the words. I had a good program going on but little by little, I became lax. Good habits were slowly allowed to slip.

Now it is taking diligence to catch myself BEFORE I slip into auto-pilot.

I'm heading in the right direction . . . . just gotta keep putting one foot in front of the other.

    I too love the mornings and being in the country is something I too treasure. Yesterday I came face to face with a deer in the front yard and it studied me for awhile before deciding to leave.. I love how they boing through the bush..

Keep at those 5lbs and soon they'll melt away.. just keep putting that one foot in front of the other and making good choices and they'll take care of themselves!

    You are so blessed to have a beautiful place to enjoy. I am in a subdivision but am still able to enjoy sitting outdoors. Today tho it is raining cats and dogs.
I am envious of your beautiful nature.

    Love the dear pictures. We have them in our back and front yard at times.
I have been slipping lately without thinking. Doing without some of my favorite snacks is difficult for me now. I did it before.

    Great pictures! What a magical morning!

Keep taking steps forward, baby steps if you need to, a 10-min spark video, an extra glass of water and reduce your portions just a little. Day by day it will get easier.

I hope tomorrow is a great day!

    Your picture of the cat & the cat door made me literally LOL because we had a cat that got stuck in the cat door, he was so fat! Thanks for a good laugh today!

    Loved your description and photos. Made me feel like I was there with you.

Keep pushing ahead, you will get back on track. We all have those awful days, and it is easy to slip back into old habits. I know, I have 5 lbs. to lose again because of my bad habits !!

    Wow! Just by your pics and description I could just about smell the morning air! That truly sounds like paradise when you can be with nature like that!

You haven't come this far not knowing what you're doing! You're on it, Girl. None of it's easy but you know just what to do and will do it!
