Follow Up

Down 5 lbs. and only 2 more to go before the New Year...I'm gonna lose that 7 lbs. I just know it. If not, no biggie, I'm totally PMS'ing so that can make weight loss a bit touch and go with the water weight fluctuations. However it's nice to know that I'll be ringing in the New Year on a nice healthy note and feeling pretty lean and sexy. In fact, if I do decide to go to my friend Jan's New Years Eve Party, I'll take some healthy snacks to make sure that I stay on the straight and narrow. My spinach stuffed mushrooms are always a hit and so are my homemade kale chips. I may even try to make the new recipe that Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen left...an Asparagus, Mushroom, and Goat Cheese Frittata that sounds absolutely divine...can't wait, I just adore all those ingredients, especially goat cheese. I totally stole the pic of the casserole from her website, hope she doesn't mind. I personally think it's gorgeous all golden brown, but she suggests cooking it for less time.

Oh I promised a report on my hypnosis experience...well I'm still rolling that one around the ol' head at the moment. I don't know what to think. It's one of those things where they want you to let go and stop trying to be in control, and for a control freak like me...well that proved to be rather difficult. It was sort of like pulling teeth and it made me feel uncomfortable. Not that I mind going out of my comfort zone, that's part of the biz that I'm in...always overcoming obstacles and fears...but I wasn't too crazy about the experience. It really is like guided meditation, but I find that I feel wayyy more relaxed after a nice yoga class with a shavasana & meditation at the end. I'm gonna try it a few more times before I knock it, but so far I'm not too thrilled about Hypnosis.


Today there's a Fat Burning Pilates class at the gym and it sounds like just what I need to give my work-out a bit of a kick in the pants...I love changing things up, it always gives great results and makes me sore for days. If I don't tell you on Monday, Have a Happy & Healthy New Year!
