Over the past two years, I've been pushing myself to live with a purpose, to grow, to learn, to challenge. So, here are some things I've been doing and really enjoying recently.
I missed the bandwagon of Harry Potter and Twilight - I just saw the movies instead. I caught this one just in time! The first book is enthralling and totally draws you in. My husband is now in book 3. I can't wait to talk about what happens in the end with him! Will you see the movie??
Reading Atlas Shrugged
Who is John Gault? This question appears on bumper stickers, and the classic is referenced all the time. I took the plunge and have audio-booked this lengthy novel. I'm in the last few chapters, and I have to say, I'm hooked.
Enjoying a cup of tea
I've started drinking more hot tea...with a dollop of honey. The problem is it seems to disappear as soon as it hits my lips. I'm enjoying Earle Gray....any tea brand/kind suggestions?
Swooning Over Baking
I've read ridiculous amounts of this blog http://sweetopia.net/ on baking and decorating cookies (Thanks Pinterest for my baking adiction). However, I've refrained from taking action on this desire to bake because it completely would contradict my next activity......
I've cut my calories, and have been dedicated to a minimum of 3 hard core workouts per week for the last 6 weeks. I've cut out diet coke and my beloved lattes, eating lots of veggies and organic-lean meat, restricted sweets and carbs, and feel fabulous! My motivation....self-esteem and changing the way clothes fit.
