HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

I hope you are all having a great start to your Friday. :) I am just heading out soon to drive Eric to work and then do a couple errands in Toronto. It is SO mild here again today! All the snow is almost gone and I couldn’t be happier!

Yesterday was gorgeous- 8 degrees C and sunny…today is about the same temp only rain. I so have spring fever! Stay tuned for a video I shot yesterday coming up on Oh She Glows!

Day 7: Crap Free Week

I can’t believe it is Day 7 already of CFW! I honestly think I can go longer than a week. Last night was pretty hard, but I was able to squash the sugar cravings with some Spelt cereal + Almond breeze, unsweetened applesauce and some raisins.

I had a moment of weakness in the kitchen around 8:30pm….I wanted some sweets! But I decided that I would make a peppermint tea and walk away from the kitchen. I repeat, walk away from the kitchen! LOL.

Since I am still having sugar cravings, I wonder if I extended my CFW a bit longer if they would eventually go away all together? What do you guys think?

I started off my morning with a delicious Green Monster of course. Yesterday I didn’t get 2 GM’s in so today I am going to be sure to do so. I bought some super sweet frozen pineapple at Wal-Mart yesterday and I think it is going to be fabulous in a smoothie this afternoon.

My morning GM was all veggie as usual for CFW!

  • 4 organic kale leaves
  • 1/2 c. low fat soy milk + 1/2 c. Almond Breeze in Original
  • 1 Tbsp flax
  • 3 ice cubes

I do NOT recommend this smoothie combo for Green Monster Beginners! heh. The key to this all veggie smoothie is to BLEND BLEND BLEND until you can’t blend anymore.

I spy with my little eye…..something that is….

Sketchie tried to eat Eric’s Pumpkin muffins that I packed him for a snack at work today :(

I guess Sketchie couldn’t beat HIS sugar cravings last night!!! hahaha.

I guess these muffins are a hit! lol.

Still no word on the bone scan verdict yet! I know they said it would be 7-10 days but for some reason I think maybe they were just over-estimating…? lol.

Since it is a gloomy day outside I thought I would put up a couple beautiful pictures from December 2007- our trip to Mayan Riviera Mexico (where we got engaged)…

“Paradise Beach”

I want to go to Mexico!!! Great pics!

Way to kick those cravings last night. I’m not sure if extended it will kill the cravings all together. They may even be heightened since you’re thinking about “not eating sweets” so much. That’s normally what happens to me. I’ve actually gone several months without them, but the second I let myself “have a little bite” after a loooooong break from sweets, I was hooked again. I know my Sweet Tooth is forever. :)

Kaneil, balanceisbest

Your sugar free week is inspiring me!
I am thinking of giving it a try as I have a chocolate problem, but I’m scared! Haha.

There was a long period of time I could not leave anything on the counter because I would come back to it with bite marks all over it, including bananas!

Glad CFW is going fairly well for you. I think I read before that sometimes when you have a craving for one thing you should have something opposite (ie crave sugar, have some salt). No idea if its true or not.

Oh man, Anne Hathaway is SO classic. And I often love Reese Witherspoon (this year’s Oscar dress not my fave, but last year’s, OMG).

I totally love when celebs don’t flaunt brands or too much skin. Can’t think of one off the top of my head, but I think you know what I mean!

I’m really hoping spring will be here soon, too!

I love Rachel Bilson’s style!

Bec February 27, 2009

Jennifer Anniston, she always looks great but never like she is trying. Classic but casual!

Reply

Mariposa February 27, 2009

i actually kind of like Jessica Alba’s style.. she dresses how i dress, i think thats the thing.. always low-key and casual- but she always looks put together!

Reply

Jenny February 27, 2009

My favorites are Reese – love the classic but so feminine look (but not so much at the Oscar’s this year) and Rachel Bilson – love the casual, boho look

Ah, I want to go to Mexico! I am going on a cruise to Cozumel in April- can’t wait! Your pics are gorgeous.

My celebrity style crush is definitely Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and always Kate Hudson.

Happy Friday!

Beauuutiful pix!!! u seriously rock the bikini :) cant wait to enjoy Mexico’s amazing beaches.
Concerning the almond butter, it is actually what we make in the south of Morocco. u process ur almonds just like how u did except that we add ARGANE OIL, which is an explosif od nutrients and healthy fats. and the mix of the two is what we call AMLOU. and we can keep AMLOU outside, but i dono if u can do that without adding the oil.
I hope u’ll hear some good news abt the bone scan. Have a magnificient week end.

Only speaking of fashion, I must admit, Lauren Conrad has great style. You can tell she developed it on her own and translated it into her own fashion line.

I also like Rachel Bilson, Peaches Geldof and Ashley Olsen.
