Health update.... 'lost' 5 lbs of the water weight from last week, but that still puts me at a -2lbs for the year to date. Walking more, exercising more and four days ago started a major detox, so let's see what the new week brings.
I feel great, I am getting better sleep, and I love life!

That time of week again. This week brought new cut and color. The color is quite a bit blonder than I expected, but I am told it will fade or tone down in a few days :)
Health-wise, I felt great this week. I walked Gus for 1.5-2 hours everyday (3-4 30 minute walks) because of his new flexi-leash. I ate well, fast food only once. However, the scale said I gain 7 pounds this week. I am more bemused than anything wondering how in the world I could have gained (or retained) that much weight (or water) in just 7 days (actually 3 days because I weighed myself mid-week). So, my weight is exactly the same as it was January 1.
All in all a great week, wonder clients, wonderful friends, beautiful weather!

Ok, this is the Sunday self-portrait. I think everyone in the world can take 'the shot in the mirror' and get it in focus, except for me!!!!! This shot has a watercolor filter to mask a little bit of how totally out of focus it is, it was the best of a couple dozen tries!
Health was much better this week. I felt like I got stronger everyday. I walked Gus a lot and played with him, but still no gym. Hopefully tomorrow I will go back to the pool. Food wise, was terrible, lol. Lots of hormonal eating and less than 3 hours sleep a night, however, the scale showed a 1.5 lb loss so that makes 7 total for the year.
I saw all my clients this week, said goodbye to my orange furry baby, got the taxes done, signed a lease on an art studio space, and took shots most days. I have always said I want life to be an adventure, this week has sure felt like one :)

We had to say goodbye to our amazing orange kitten, Riley, last night. He had a very serious medical condition that would have required lots of surgeries with no guarantee of his survival or quality of life.
He was one of the best cats I have ever known. He will be missed.

I have been coughing less, needing less Advil, and little less achy... so I am hoping this is the last day of being sick and that everyday from now on is a getting better day!
Food wise it wasn't a terrible week, lots of popsicles and fruit. No exercise to speak of at all! I don't think I walked for more than 10 at the most at any one time and that was just 'because Gus needed it'.
Scales was down the 1.5 lbs from last week, so I am back up to 5 lbs loss for the year. Really can't wait to get back outside and to the gym again!
No matter how crappy I feel, Gus still needs to be walked. So, I took the camera with me. Trying to get some sunshine, get him some exercise, and get a shot that had some artistic element.

Here it is the end of another day with no shot. It was my first 'full day' back to work. Worked with five people today, I am totally worn out!
So, this photo is of the last thing I did this evening, it is the angel card reading my sister asked me for :) As tired as I was, there is something about going into a still meditative prayerful state and asking for guidance that makes me feel better.

I am in the process of decorating my 'rewards' envelope. I am paying myself to do the things that move me closer to my goals! The money will go towards getting me a Macro Lens and upgrading my camera. I am extremely excited about actually getting this started. The idea has been on the back burning for a few months now.
