A Smile For Friday

My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late-model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn.

He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair

He said with excitement, “You appear quite elderly to be driving.”

“Well, yes, I am,” she replied proudly.  “I’ll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough, that I don’t even need a driver’s licence anymore.”

He asked “How do you know?”

“The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a driver’s licence

I told him, yes and handed it to him.”

He took scissors out of the drawer, cut the licence into pieces, and threw them in the waste basket, saying, ‘You won’t need this anymore.’

So I thanked him and left!!!!!”

Just wanted to say, “Hi!”  “HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY!”

A smile – is a sign of joy.

A hug – is a sign of love.

A laugh – is a sign of happiness.

My Isagenix Experience and Cleanse Day

 

I started my Isagenix program on Friday a week ago. I have to say the first few days took a bit of mind control. It was not that I was hungry, it was that I love my food, and am a nibbler so the two shakes for two meals was a bit of a mental struggle for me. Determined, I persevered and looked forward to my meal in the evening with a glass of wine of course. Protein and a plate full, and I mean a plate full of delicious salad, which included everything but the kitchen sink. Avocado, carrots, onions, spinach, lettuce, mung beans, beetroot, fresh broccoli, feta cheese, coriander, basil, parsley, chilies, covered with balsamic, and Lesley’s secret dressing which I will give to you at the end of this story. After an hour I would have a piece of fruit which last week was lychees. I ate around 6:30 PM so it would be at least 16 hours before I would start again. I guess you could say I am incorporating intermittent fasting with it if you count the hours between evening an morning meals.

Yesterday I did my cleanse day which involves drinking this concoction from Isagenix called “cleanse for life” every four hours with heaps of filtered water. I was drinking Kangen water of course.  It is not a laxative which entails purging  it is a cellular nourishing and detoxifying  powder which you drink with filtered water so you are not purging  you are actually supplying your cells with antioxidants and fabulous plant botanicals

Well, that was interesting because I mentally was not looking forward to it but once again determined to do it properly. I was surprised that although I struggled mentally for the first few hours I found I did not get hungry and as the day went on I really found myself not missing the food. The hardest bit was not having my evening meal but got through that with watching a J Lo movie and an Aussie movie then it was time for bed.

Now to my surprise I actually had a great nights sleep which I have not done in months and I feel energized and clear-headed which also was interesting as I thought I would have felt a little sluggish this morning but no, I feel fantastic.

Have I lost weight? I think so, I don’t have scales and have not stood on scales in years so I cannot prove it.  Body wise I do feel lighter if that is any indication and I do believe my clinging dress is not so clingy.

So on to the next week a few more distractions next week so will power required.

Oh, my secret recipe for my dressing well I think I will keep it a secret a little while longer.

Poem Friday – Another Cup Of Tea In The Pot

Have not done a poem in a while
Sun on my back, that warm feeling in the winter makes me smile

I love the mornings, fresh and early to rise
Got up had my cold shower, cleaned my teeth and exercise

Took the dog for a walk down to the lake
The air so still with mist on top, natural beauty not fake

So here I am with toast marmalade and tea
A Simple pleasure, Body, Soul and me

Great Start to the day, really don’t want to move, just enjoying this lot
Well why should I, there is still another cup of tea in the pot

Did You Know – 03/22/2018

As I am in New Zealand at the moment I thought you may like to know things you did not know about New Zealand


1. The longest place name in the world is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, a hill in Hawke’s Bay.

2. No part of the country is more than 128km (79 miles) from the sea.

3. Only 5% of NZ’s population is human the rest are animals.

4. More people die in New Zealand each year playing lawn bowls than scuba diving.


5. New Zealand is similar in size to the UK, but only has a population of about 4 million (compared to 63 million in the UK).

6. Gisborne airport has train tracks running across the middle of the runway. Quite often, trains and planes have to stop until one moves out-of-the-way.

7. NZ has banned all television advertising on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, ANZAC Day, and Christmas Day.
