January 16-

I started walking again- and really getting back on track with spending time working out and taking care of myself and of my body.   It isn’t that I was being horrible to myself before- but I definitely wasn’t getting the exercise I need, so it has been great to get back in the swing of things.

I have asked myself how I ever allowed myself to get out of the habit- since I feel so great when I do work out.    Between exercise and changing my eating habits back to what they should have been all along- I find that I have much more energy and I’m loving it.

The afternoon sun was shining through the window and it was shining directly on this cross that I have hanging on the wall-   There are actually two there- but the other was shadowed where this one was not.   I thought it would make a cool picture and so I decided to grab a shot with my iPhone- then ran it through Camera +, pretty much like I’ve done with most of the pictures in this weeks series.

This photo isn’t even remotely good but I wanted to share what I made last Wednesday, that instantly become a ‘favorite’ in this household and amongst my friends who had the pleasure of trying it.

Very simple-  I bought three ripe (not over ripe) bananas and cut them into chunks-  then I spread about a 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter (unsweetened) on top of each chunk.  Put them on a parchment lined cookie sheet and then tossed them in the fridge-    I let them cool while I melted some dark chocolate- and then dipped them one by one and put them back on the parchment lined cookie sheet and let them harden in the fridge.   They were- to-die-for.     Marcel, who doesn’t like banana’s or peanut butter loved them.     They didn’t last long..  and I can’t wait to make them again.

My favorite (and only) guy was late coming home from work on Thursdsay.  Generally when he’s late he’ll pick up the phone to call and let me know- but this time he didn’t.     He was due to be home at 2, but at 2:15 (and just when I was ready to pick up the phone to call him) he walked in the door carrying these beautiful orange roses.   This photo doesn’t do them justice- but they are gorgeous..   Here I am- adding this entry almost a week later and they are still gorgeous-     That’s what I call a wonderful surprise.

This is actually a shot that I took of my iPad after logging my food and exercise for the day on Friday-    I’ve been using My Fitness Pal for a couple of weeks now- and I have to say that I love it more than Spark People- and that’s saying a lot.     I’ve always been a huge Spark People fan- and still am, but this is – just better in my eyes.

I love how it snycs everything across the board from my phone- my iPad or even the computer.    It’s made keeping up with my food diary and exercise much easier.

Carmex has to be one of my favorite things ever!  It also happens to be one of my mom’s as well-   and I’d even go as far as saying she loves it more than I do.     I had just put some on my lips and I tossed it onto the coffee table where it landed on the back of a magazine-   I saw the lips and decided to reposition it for the shot- which I think turned out pretty cool.

I was gone most of the day on Sunday and the picture that I did take I wasn’t thrilled with, so I ended up choosing one that I’d taken earlier in the week.    We had some amazing sunny days and even though it was chilly- it was perfect outside with all the sunshine.    I guess since we’ve had so little lately- that when we do get it- I realize just how grateful I am.   It was short lived- but it was wonderful while it lasted.

The colors in the sky were breathtaking-  It amazes me that after seeing things like this- that people actually believe there is no God.  That’s something I’ll never comprehend.
