Today I am grateful for

The site of: Satuday
The sound of: a really honest conversation with someone I admire
The touch of:  new makeup on my skin
The smell of: the sea at night time – that delicious salty air
The taste of:  espresso granita with chantilly cream at Cott & Co.

Back. Again.

Today I am grateful for:

The site of: the sun – you can feel summer coming
The sound of: the wind through the trees
The touch of:  clean hands
The smell of: that slightly summer smell in the air
The taste of:  curried egg sandwiches

I am back here again.  A lot has changed. I will report back. Dr. Rensburg next Monday. I am excited.

It’s too cold

Sweet Summer Dreams

Last time I lost a whole bunch of weight was over the 2010 summer period so I didn’t really notice the cold.  Right now I’m 13.5kgs down (that’s nearly 30lbs) and I am cold cold cold all the time which, in turn, leads me to staring at the blogs of the current Northern Hemisphere summer.

One of my favourties is Jeanne Damas. She is this gorgeous 20-something Parisian living a fabulous life. Truthfully it reminds me of my time living in Europe – oh what fun that was and how unburdened I felt back then.  The shot above just makes me long for summer and how healthy and fit I will be.  It keeps me focused.  This is her below.  How carefree she looks – this is what I want (again).

SSD

It’s been a crap couple of months, but I have remained totally loyal to the Rensburg program and it has paid dividends. In fact I think it’s helped in some small way as everything else in my life seemed so uncertain.  I haven’t had a drink for nearly 7 weeks and as I mentioned before I am down 13.5 kgs which has made a massive difference to how I look (and feel).

Happy Thursday.

Working late

I am working late on a major piece of work that’s been a lot of my life for the past 6-8 moths in Sydney next week, so I figured I might as well put on some lipstick and feel a little pretty sitting a the key board, alone at midnight.

In fact my working environment it’s almost perfect – vanilla candle smells fill the room and I have three months of Bold and the Beautiful to watch. Yep, this is what it’s like when you’re 47.  I have actually been so busy that I have eaten half of what I should have, but I’m just not hungry at all. I skipped breakfast and had 3 rice cakes with tomato for dinner a long with around 3 mangos.  I have this love of eating frozen mango straight our of the pack in the freezer.  It could be worse.

Not only that, I have not had any alcohol for 4 weeks and 1 day.  That is a massive achievement for me given a lot of business is done over lunch, dinner or drinks after work.

B&B

More importantly, will Katie listen to Taylor? I mean really, so many questions unanswered…
