I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. It has been pretty warm here in Bend. We are suppose to reach 96 degrees on the 4th of July.yikes. That's too hot for me. ha! Steve and I were invited to an outdoor event that we are pretty excited to attend. Finding the perfect outfit is on my to-do list for today. The main thing is: It has to be cool, not as in "cool", but as in not too hot..lol :-) It has been a pretty quite and simple past few weeks. I continue to work out with my trainer 3 days a week and just this last week learned that I have lost 3 inches off of my waist. Whoohoo. I continue to build muscle and my metabolism is progressing. Good things. But, he TOTALLY kicks my butt and I get another round here in a few hours..lol :-)
The hardest part has really been the diet. Each morning I have to drink a "medical" food shake. Now, it's not *terrible* but it's definitely not my favorite thing to ingest at 5am. But, I faithfully down that shake each and every morning knowing that the benefits will far out-weight the process of trying to get it down..lol. Combine this with about 8 supplements and I'm ready to hit the gym. But, when I say the diet part is difficult, it is that I have to each 5-6 meals a day. I am used to eating 2 meals. I never ate breakfast before and have learned that was SOOO bad for me. So, it has taken some getting used to, but I am seeing results and my energy levels are much higher. So....I trust the process.
I've been creating a lot lately too. I went through a bit of a "rut" last month, and it feels great to feel inspired again. My friend, Pammy, encouraged me to scrap non-DT related layouts to get out of the rut and to scrap things that are simple, like flowers and such.
So it feels good to be spending more time in my studio giving some love to my supplies that were begging to be played with ;-)
Before I ramble on and on like I normally do, I will simply wish you a wonderful 4th of July. Be safe and most of all.....HAVE FUN!
