Happy Valentine’s Day -Know Your Roses

We are familiar with the expression that “Diamonds are woman’s best friend”, but I think roses also fall in the same category.

If you are thinking of buying roses, Red seems to be the most popular color for Valentine’s Day, however for other occasions you may want to select a different color.

I would like to expand your horizons about the different colors of roses and their symbolism. So next time you are shopping for these beauties, you might want to think twice about the color you want to purchase.

Foundation – Phase Two-The Fat Smash Diet

Congratulations!

We successfully completed the Detox Phase of the Fat Smash Diet.

Didn’t the 9 days just fly by? Aren’t you feeling better already? I sure am, and it feels great!

Phase Two is much easier than Phase one, in regards to food selection. Even though we still continue with all the foods from Phase One, we are making new additions. This phase lets us get back to many of the foods we were missing during the past nine days. It still is very important to eat 4-5 smaller meals per day, and healthful snacks in between.

Is There Ever Enough Snow?

We thought that the worse snow storm of this season was over, but as the saying goes “Don’t count your chickens until all the eggs hatch”, so here we are again…..with a bigger snow storm than the one before.

In my last post I was cheering you on with signs of spring, but today I will share some signs of winter still in full swing.

Signs Of Spring – Or Mass Confusion

A couple of weeks ago, on Saturday, we had a gorgeous day. It was sunny, pleasantly warm, with the temperature in the low 50ties, but what was so peculiar about it, is that it’s still the middle of winter. Mother Nature reminded us of this reality during this past weekend.

As you know, I love nature and gardening, so I could not resist to go outside and check out how my garden is doing this time of the year.

I was pleasantly surprised, and quite confused, when I noticed some of my spring plants already popping out of the ground. It definitely is way too early for them to be peeking out, but then again, it’s the call of Mother Nature.

The Fat Smash Diet – First Day OF Detox

I already informed you about the Fat Smash Diet, introduced you to the book, posted the food list, and hopefully convinced you to join me, so we can have fun together.

So today is the BIG day, our first day of Detox, and as with anything else in life, first is always the most challenging. It will get easier with each passing day, believe me, because you are building up your confidence, self control, and most of all, you begin to feel better and eat healthier.

I printed out my lists of Recommended and “DO NOT” foods, and posted it on my refrigerator. My food shopping was done on Saturday, and on Sunday I jotted down my basic plan for my daily eating routine and a quick first day menu.
