{September 8, 2012}   Drybar Reward

Good morning everyone, I hope wherever you are it is not as rainy as it is here. While I am ready to have a cozy day in with a movie, I am thinking Julie and Julia – I couldn’t with out putting a note here 🙂

I love the way I eat, it is not a diet, it is just a healthy way of life and I cannot say that enough to anyone trying to eat healthier or lose some calories. My mornings consist of a bowl of cereal (weetabix which are imported from England so I get them from a Fairway) to change it up I add different fruits, strawberries, bananas, berries, they have so many antioxidants.

With that I am off to boot camp and get in a great hour of excercise, four times a week. Now that my little girl is off at nursery school, it is even easier as before I used to take her with and she used to watch me in class!

Water water water – one can never ever have enough!!! I don’t care how much time you spent in the bathroom, its worth it! I personally add lemon (see my previous blog on this) it gets rid of so much ‘junk’ in our system.

Lunch and dinner is obviously different day to day but I try and keep it very healthy and around 450 calories at most and eat some healthy snacks through out the day such as baby peppers with hummous, or carrots and hummous, Champions greek yoghurt – there is nothing like greek yoghurt. It is so healthy and might I add I have totally removed sugar from my diet and that alone is an amazing way to get rid of calories.

So this week, I have lost another couple of lbs and I am now 130lbs yay! That is a total of 20lb loss!

So to celebrate I went for a girls days out, to start I went with a friend to Drybar, no guys, it is not a bar, it is a hair salon where they only do blowdrys – and an awesome head massage, my heaven! Then we went for a lovely wholewheat sushi and salad, yes, you can eat healthy out!

This is me and my friend with our hair just blowed out…. I am on the left with the Loooong HAIR! 🙂

{September 7, 2012}   First day of school

On Tuesday morning my little baby girl who will be just 2 on the 22nd of this month started nursery school! Of course at this time I started to reflect how quickly the time has gone when I was in the hospital having my little 5lbs baby who is a now 27lbs big girl 🙂

From feeding in the middle of the night to giving her a bowl of pasta, to her having no hair to her beautiful curly locks, from her little cries to her saying mama and dada. The beautiful healthy (thank gd) gift of life that we see grow every single day just makes me speechless, I am so lucky!!

We took my very social little girl to school all dressed in pink together with her new school bag, and while she hesitated at first she could not have been more excited!! I was told she was so brave after I left and didn’t even cry – I was probably more upset and missed her more!

We have to enjoy each day as time goes quickly people!!
