Day 2563 - Are you in the habit of Mindful Eating?

Let's talk about the day I ate raw quiche.

So I'm currently battling with that whole middle-age phenomenon of "bottoming out".  You know, packing on the weight particularly in the mid-section, butt and turning what used to be legs into undefined tree trunks.

The older we get the harder it can be to lose weight and remain toned.

Day 2562 - Herbal Essences Challenges Us to "Crack the Cap"

Today we chat about shopping etiquette.

Tell me - when you're at the supermarket, do you ever sample the merchandise before you buy?

Ever grab a grape?

Nibble a nut?

Ask to sample the salami?

Day 2561 - Start each day with a dog

Nothing says "wakey, wakey, rise and shine" like a dog licking your face.

Alfred Winston
Not that I would ever let a dog lick my face mind you, but I can imagine it would be a good call to action if you're prone to sleep-ins.

Day 2560 - The mind only knows what we tell it

It's time to say the stuff we need to hear

Have you ever noticed how if you believe you've lost your keys, it's harder to find them?

You might stomp around the house looking in all the right places mumbling to yourself "where the hell are the keys?  I can't find the keys; I've lost the damn keys" and then you retrace your steps and happen upon them even though you've already looked in that spot 5 times.

It's because the mind only knows what we tell it. We believe what we tell ourselves.  If we tell ourselves the keys are lost, then even if they're right in front of us we might not see them because we already believe that we won't.

Day 2559 - Grandma's At The Farm, Federal Highway, Collector

Recipes inspired by Grandma's and Grandpa's from around the world.

Yesterday we had a belated birthday celebration with my parents.

Given they're in Goulburn and we're in Canberra, we decided to meet at Collector for lunch at Grandma's At The Farm, which can be found inside the Fedra Olive Grove.

Day 2558 - The Lovin Life Linky - Nuclear Medicine Edition

Beware! I'm radioactive.

As you know I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 10 years ago.  You may also know it's been flaring up quite a bit these last few months which I blame on the frustratingly long Canberra winter.

Day 2557 - Make Your Mark

This is your day to be awesome.

A gift that helps me to make my mark
Last Saturday you might recall I was filming for the new "Dress Me Up - Embrace Your Style" series being presented by the founder and owner of Sash & Belle Handbags, Kristy McPhillips.

In gratitude for my involvement Kristy gifted me with a "Make Your Mark" notepad that helps "unleash the remarkable leader in you".

Right up my alley!

Day 2556 - Why Did My Hair Fall Out?

Have you heard of Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia Areata sounds incredibly fancy and one could easily think you might find it on an Italian menu.  

As delightful as it might sound, it's not a pasta dish served alongside Penne Arrabiata, but rather an autoimmune disease that causes hair to fall out in small, random patches.

Day 2555 - How to achieve a day's worth of result in just 10 minutes

What could you achieve in just 10 minutes?

This is the IKEA dude.

Quite a few years ago I attended a success conference where someone (no idea who) talked about time management.  They made reference to IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad and his approach to success.

Apparently one secret to the IKEA success is time.  The ability to have lots of it and to make the most of it.

Let me explain ...

Day 2554 - It's been a week of water

Today I give you water.

First stop: The Gold Coast last Wednesday
A view of the Surfer's Paradise from Labrador 
Over the last seven days I've been privy to lots of lovely water views.

Worthy of some reflection ...

(Pun totally intended.)
