Post-Christmas Cleanse :)

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Well, it's been an incredible time of blessings and abundance, and I'm feeling fat and happy. :)

I've let myself slip a bit when it comes to maintaining not only my weight -- that couple of pounds is really the least of it -- but my strength and healthy habits. Time to shift back into mindfulness and better choices.

Pierre and I didn't exchange stuff for Christmas this year, but we did give gifts to friends and family, and received a few as well. My gf who introduced me to SP gave me a three-month premium membership to MyYogaOnline, and today I started their 8-day Spring Cleanse. Did a 25-minute twisty yoga workout with the video, and tonight that same gf and I and another mutual friend will be attending a 90-minute yoga flow class. I'm so excited about this one! My favourite yoga instructor who moved a few hours away is back in town, and she and a handful of other yogis/musician friends will be performing live accompanying music for the class! Whee! emoticon emoticon

I have a delicious-sounding fresh food grocery list printed out, and will be making a Spark Recipe crock-pot cabbage soup tomorrow as part of the cleanse.

It's been fabulous checking back into SparkPeople this past week; I've missed you and the healthy energy that surrounds "this place"over the past couple of months. Great to be back!

Hope you all have had beautiful holidays, and are moving peacefully toward 2014.

  I like trying Spark recipes too! My husband wouldn't go of cabbage soup though. Good for you!

    Hi Patrice,

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I hope you weren't too affected by that bad ice storm of last week. My family in Ontario didn't lose power but they got their share of the ice!
I am glad that you are having a new beginning also. I love having the support from my friends here on Sparkpeople. I am starting to believe that 2014 is going to be a good one!

Cheers! Gwen
