I have never been a breakfast eater. I have a cup of coffee and a glass of water when I get up. I have read how breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When the kids were little I fixed their breakfast. I send zucchini muffins with my husband each morning. Fixing breakfast for myself has always been difficult. I have tried all sorts of different foods; cereal, toast and eggs. I just have never taken to breakfast.
For my prep program I am to eat a cooked apple or pear each morning. I can cook it in the micro-wave for 45 seconds and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
I have taken to it! I look forward to my breakfast. It is tasty and so easy.
Normally I light my candle for my husband or my children. I send blessings and my love. This morning I lit my candle for me. I am grateful I am learning how to take care of my body.
I have begun my home preparations for my spring rejuvenation at The Raj.
Yesterday I bought a journal for my schedule and my thoughts. When I have a new awareness or a question I will have my little black book near by. I am writing down what I am doing each day and my meals and snacks.
The Lilies are opening and filling the dining room with the sweet smell of spring. My balance includes flowers and birds and sunshine. Good for my spirit. For my emotions I am laughing and connecting with family and friends. For my body I am following the diet The Raj sent to me. I am walking when the weather permits. I am getting plenty of sleep and water.
I have a folder to hold the many papers I am collecting. I have also begun to put together my spa outfits. I have chosen sage, nutmeg and mustard as my colors. My accessories will be in black, cream and silver. I have a hat!
I am learning about new foods. My daughter told me about Quinoa. It is a complete protein grain. Very tasty and on my list of foods for home preparation. My husband is very supportive too. He goes to the market with me for our fresh vegetables and is eating the same suppers. That makes it easy for me. He also told me last night he will drive me to The Raj and pick me up. One less stress.
I have put together a little art supply bag. I have colored pencils and a glue stick and a pair of scissors. I may want to decorate my journal while I am gone. I am preparing and having fun.
