What’s been going on this holiday break? A whole lotta nothing 😦 Mostly boring stuff like working my 3 jobs and preparing for the 2014 Holiday Season. I had a low-key Christmas (just the way I like it) and a fun and not-at-all stressful New Years celebration. I have had the past 2.5 weeks off of work, and have been really enjoying not being on a schedule, being able to visit with my besties that live out-of-town now.
A few things I have been doing on Christmas Break:
Catching up on my YouTube channel I subscribe to “leighann says“.
She lives in Houston, TX and creates beauty reviews, tutorials and now she is Vlogging…I can’t get enough but have not been able to watch for a while cause I blame work getting in the way of all my fun. I have thought about starting a YouTube channel, but at the moment, I’m not ready to video tape myself for the world 😉
Catching up on Sons of Anarchy!
We have just completed Season 6….this show became our addiction after we finished Dexter.
My husband and I are also watching Continuum, a Canadian Sci-Fi show that is pretty good, in my opinion (and I am not a sci-fi girl).
|Building my virtual closet with the Stylicious app – eventually I would like to own a capsule wardrobe….someday I might take you through that journey with me. I am really trying hard to take inventory of what I have in my closet so I can work up to building a wardrobe of things I want to wear and feel comfortable in.Juicing! My husband John bought me a juicer for my birthday because we had recently watched the documentary (do you get the drift? We watch a lot of TV…it’s just what we do…) called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”. It’s about a fairly successful man who decides to take control of his health and go on a 60 day juice fast while traveling from Australia to the US to document his transformation. So my husband got me this juicer and we gradually eased into a 15 day juice fast.|
|I think the Joe’s Mean Green Juice was my favorite recipe.|
We didn’t follow the juicing exactly to the plan from the documentary, but we tried our best, and I lost 10 lbs! Can’t be mad at that. Especially since we began juicing on Thanksgiving and ended on Christmas Day. Not the best time to go through a fast, but we figured we had better give it a shot. I can honestly tell you that the most surprising benefit of cutting out all the fatty foods, carbs and everything else from my diet was that I got the most restful sleep I can ever remember having. Since we have ended our juice fast, we have been eating smaller portions of healthier foods, and I have been trying to exercise more. Overall I feel good!
Let me tell ya, it’s highly addicting. I get so into the game, that the scary parts make me scream and jump! The more I play, the better I get, and the more I want to play again. It’s fun, and for the moment, I’m enjoying playing. We shall see…will I ever get to the end of the game????
So that’s it. Today I go back to work, and the blissfulness of the Holiday Season/New Year will be behind me.
