wellbeing salad in the middle of paint
Thu 12th, Feb, 2015
Hellooooo beach cottage friends, well I am back from yoga and sitting here in the cool with a mid-morning smoothie (it’s roasting outside in Sydney today) – today our take-away from yoga was patience…I am wondering if the universe is trying to tell me something, patience in painting lol.
So I have to decide today on the colour of the paint, I am still very much erring on the side of white all round and after taking the question to instagram last night lots said white too…so I am thinking I will actually go the light grey which in the sun looks very pale but as the sun goes down is obviously grey…thinking that the pale grey will take the edge off the harsh white in the glaring Aussie sun….but then again I will probably change my mind again by tonight.
I mentioned last week that this week I had to get back to concentrating on diet, switching off and exercise this week or things were going to go pear shaped…since the new house we’ve been having a lot of take-aways (have to say I love pizza a lot and thai fried rice) and it’s been really interesting that even though I have been very active (as in not sitting around doing not much rather on feet all day doing a million and one things) have noticed in just one month of eating more crappy food that jeans are ahem not doing up and the usual spots where fat likes to hang out on me (that would be muffin area and zee upper arms, why can fat not gather in wrinkles and puff them out??? is like some warped plan by someone up there for ageing – yeah let’s make ‘em fatter in the middle and wrinkle up their faces) have indeed gathered extra momentum and are having a little fat partay courtesy of moi…. so this week it was time to plan the good stuff, less excuses about being too busy and more nourishment going in…and it’s Thursday and so far so good – I’ve planned and scheduled every day to move (walking, yoga and playing tennis), been taking time out to read for brain refuelling and focusing on healthy lunches and smoothies.
It’s always too easy for me to skip lunch and wonder why at 3pm I feel like I may shrivel up and die from lack of energy…so yeah this little salad is one of the ones I’ve had this week…super easy, was so tasty and did the zippy energy trick and hardly took time to prepare – in went a handful of salad leaves, avocado (my fave) chickpeas, parsley, boiled egg, sprouts and a good strong sprinkling of seeds.
I’ll be the one up a ladder all zingy with a paintbrush.
See you soon with more on the Summer Room.
