New Logo!

Hello. We've got a clever lady up our sleeve and she's designed us a new logo! 

What do you reckon?

feelin' great!

Have a look at these great op shop finds in Melbourne this week! Pyrex Agee - can go in the oven! But... I was thinking that I'd have to buy some more kiddo bowls as we only have 3 in use at the moment - and voila! How ace are these! 

And here's yesterday's lunch for hubby and me. I am feeling SO good. 
I'll share a secret - I've lost 7.8 kilos! (that's 17.2 lbs for you Americans!)
Life is good. Tremendously busy, but it feels so good to look after myself as well as everyone else now.

Light all my Lights

terribly excited.
I get to go see these lovely ladies with a big ol' group of country town friends next month in Meeniyan.
How cool is that!

Here's my favorite song.
It reminds me of that handful of really really special friends I've got stashed away in my heart...
How's your friday? Mine's great. I feel great, sticking on track to my lifestyle changes. Had a lovely walk around Leongatha today in my super duper new shoes. 

These are $279 top of the line running shoes. 
In last year's colour. Red (which happens to be my favorite colour!) 
A bit over the top you say?? I got them on sale for...... wait for it......
a hundred bucks.
Yay me!

.... anyway- I really like walking around the neighborhoods. I actually prefer to walk around a town rather than a bush track (probably because I'm always in the bush here on the farm). We have a most spectacular bush track here that goes for miles and miles called the Rail Trail. It's only 1/2 K from our house too. I just like the change and to perv on everyone else's stuff and gardens. I'm creepy like that.

Then I went to the op shop and found some shoes and book treasures for the kidlets. 

Baxter is right into everything "factual" whereas Gretta still likes a bit of imagination....

And we've got a garlic stuffed fresh venison roast warming away in the oven. 
(*Vegos tune out now!!!*)

What's cooking with you?

no. more. baking.

I love to bake. and bake. and bake.
I love to see my loved ones gobble up goodness and know that they are happy that I made it for them.

but.... unfortunately, all that lovely goodness has been in QUITE too much abundance of late, and has seemed to stuck itself all over my arse. (and everywhere else!)

Game plan?

Zumba on Monday's, Yoga on Thursdays, Walking on Fridays and Sundays. After I'm feeling a bit more energy, I'm going to do the Couch to 5 K.  Yes, that's right. I'm going to start running.

I'm also revisiting my plans with Atkins. I tried Atkins almost 10 years ago. At that stage in my life - I didn't have a clue about nutrition. I had already spent time doing "Slim Fast" and diet pills since I was about 12 years old.

Sad, I know... But... back to the Atkins days.. I was on day 3 and I was the grumpiest, tired grumpy pants, and I threw a calf feeder at Nic's head. He demanded I go and eat a bowl of cereal and calm the hell down! So, I'm going on a more gentler approach, mostly because it suits my life and the food that we already eat. Minus the flour, sugar, rice, etc. - Organic or not - it's sticking to my guts and it needs to get the boot.

I am not disillusioned that I need to be skinny. I do not want to be skinny. I just need to shift some of this extra chub and aches and pains that prevent me from feeling good. That's it.

Wish me luck. I can't believe I just spilled my guts on my blog, but, that is where the honesty needs to go. It's better here than spilling over my pants! I need support. So, stop posting those damn pictures of warm muffins, thank you very much!

Hello, how are you?

This snapshot of the contents inside my handbag are a great representation of my life 
and brainspace at the moment.
Scattered and random!!

I love reading fellow blogger's post's about the contents of their bags... 
Like - "oh what a mess! I have my knitting needles and my wallet, and oh dear! how messy of me - 
I have a spent tissue!" -- the horror!

Get a load of the crap in my bag. I especially love the scattering of my Arnica that I keep in my bag. Little white pillules rolled out everywhere. 
I'm surprised that there was not a used nappy in there with a mouldy apple.

Anyway - the sun is shining today, and is at least making my scattered and hectic life a happy sunny one.

Hope yours is too.
