Day 13 – The Road To 2 Chesticles

Almost 2 weeks in of the 8 Week Challenge and I’m still going strong.

My husband and son are still living in the same house as me, so that a good sign that things are going well.

I’ve haven’t had any weight change in the past couple of days. I have a goal number for the end of the week, fingers crossed I can get there. I’m sooooo close right now.

Maybe if I put more effort into the dreaded exercise. Gah, I’m just so lazy….this struggle is real! Maybe a power shop around the mall and a few heavy shopping bags to go along with it!!!

So I wanted to share my new morning smoothie obsession! I’m in love! I’m sure there is a name for it, but I have no idea!!! We will call it Morning Obsession

I’m not a measurer but this is the appx recipe:

1 cup Almond Milk

1 Tbsp Hemp Hearts

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Tbsp Almond Butter

4-5 Pitted Dates

1 Small Banana or 1 Half Large Banana

Some Ice

Blend it all together and voila you have my Morning Obsession

If you give a try let me know what you think!

Day 10 – The Road To 2 Chesticles

Here I am at Day 10 of 56 days on the 8 Week Challenge

At this point I haven’t cheated, although last night was the first time I really considered it. I wanted something junky so badly. (My phone autocorrected junky to kinky…glad I caught that one before I posted. That’s a topic for another day)

So this craving was intense. Plus I was feeling super hungry. I almost gave in. That little devil on my shoulder kept egging me on. But I held strong in my willpower.

So here’s what ate to beat the craving and get my sweet fix:

Terra’s Sweets and Beets. Just a small handful of this yummy goodness was enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Another option would have been any these Larabars.

Oh and I did another naked seizure dance on my scale this morning. Yoohoo, two boobies here I come!

Lastly, they say you are what you eat. I want to eat a skinny person. They will make a movie out it and call it Alive: The Gym Addition

Share Your World | July 2, 2018

Here is my take on this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography

Tell us about you first bicycle or car?

This first bike I can remember was a big red tricycle that I got for my 4th birthday.  I was super excited for it and didn’t want to share, I mean, I had literally just gotten it.  My cousin, a year older, wanted to try it and I got so mad that my parents made me share it, that I ended up being sent to my room.  Grrrr….. lol!!!

If only life’s problems now were a simple as fighting over a red tricycle.

What fictional world or place would you like to visit?

Is there any other option than Wonderland???  Wouldn’t it be fun to fall down the rabbit hole? Have conversations with the Mad Hatter? A crazy tea party?  Grow big or small just by eating or drinking?? I would love to be Alice for a day.

If you could have someone follow you around for a day, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do?

At first I wanted to answer that I wouldn’t want anyone following me around.  That would drive me insane.  I hate people in my space.  But then I thought about it and really I would love a driver.  I commute to work each day and sometime the traffic is crazy.  It would be nice to just sit back and relax and not have to worry about being alert or having to deal with traffic jams.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

We went to a Canada Day BBQ on Sunday to a friends.  We have been friends with these people for more that 20 year.  Always lots laughs.  It great after all these years we can still poke fun at each other.  And how can think picture not make you smile!


Review | Tossed Into Love |Aurora Rose Reynolds

About The Book

Libby Reed is over it. Or that’s what she tells herself. She’s lusted after one of New York’s 38770996bravest for years, but firefighter Antonio Moretti has doused her interest for the last time. As much as she wants the arrogant jerk (in a bad, bad way), they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant.

Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long, beautiful legs into heartbreak. But while Libby might rub him the wrong way, he can’t deny the heat between them. And it only burns hotter when she steps up in his time of need. The closer they get, the more he realizes he may have misjudged her. Then again, he doesn’t know the secret Libby’s keeping that could send their relationship up in flames before it’s even begun.

My Review

I was provided an advanced copy of Tossed into Love, from Netgalley for an honest review.

I chose to read Tossed into Love based on two factors: I enjoy Miss Reynolds style of writing and I love a good enemies to lovers book.  I mean, who doesn’t !?!?!?  And this book does not disappoint.

With well written characters and a crazy, sexual tension filled plot line, Tossed into Love is the perfect weekend or summer read.  And although it is the 3rd book in the Fluke My Life series, it is not necessary to have read the other 2 books, but definitely worth it if you do.

Told in a dual POV, Tossed Into Love is a sweet HEA read.  Overall I give it 4 stars! And as always I look forward to what Aurora Rose Reynolds has in store for us readers in the future.
