Back to the Basics

My laptop is still out of service, have a wonderful Geek friend attempting to repair. I don't care what else is lost, I'm just begging him to save my pictures! Keep your fingers crossed, dear friends, that it's returned to me with all of my precious pin-ups intact! In the meantime, Beren has been generous about allowing me to use his, probably since he knows I'm downloading all kinds of sexy pin-up ladies onto his hard drive. *wink*

After a week of no weight loss and much frustration, I'm going back to the basics this week. Lots of lean protein, fruit & veggies. No processed white stuff. Exercise. It sounds so easy, doesn't it? Then why the heck can't I manage to do it? I'm sick & tired of dealing with this weight, tired of looking at myself in the mirror with total disgust. Can't stand the sight of my body in a bathing suit or, worse yet, in the nude. Angry about the closet full of cute clothes that I can't fit into, and the larger sizes I continue to buy out of necessity. Something has got to change, I can't live this way anymore.

So, tonight I'm having Beren grill some chicken for me, using tips posted by one of my favorite bloggers, Kalyn. I'll serve it over a big green salad and fresh fruit for dessert. Simple. Tasty. Good for me. Period. Since we're in Ormond this weekend, some beach walks are definitely in order as well.

Hope you're all having a Beauty-full day so far, TGIF!


  1. Thanks for reminding me to get back to basics!

    Enjoy your weekend. (I had tech trouble last week! It's a bummer!!!)

  2. Nice pin up, very nice!

    Kalyn's link, thanks for sharing that. That recipe looks devine. Have to check out more there.

    Yep, I hear you; it all sounds so easy. Some days it is, others the opposite. On difficult days, it does help to simplify the work. Eat simpler, exercise simply. Frustration can be eased by keeping it easy, or so I believe.

  3. You can do it! back to basic is something I could do with from time to time, good plan! :)

  4. Miel Abeille, it's amazing how much we count on our technology, isn't it? So frustrating when it lets us down!

  5. Patrick, great advice! So glad you enjoyed the pin-up. :)
