Back to Reality.

Hi Lovies!
I have been away.
I spent the week visiting friends.
I cannot express how much fun it was, how much love and laughs were shared.
Don't you love a girlfriend that you sit up with all night chatting, sharing all of your secrets?
Or just cuddling in bed while you laugh together nonstop?
Yes, yes, we do.

And of course, we being the women we are, we spoke a TON about our health and lifestyle. We spoke about how we become complacent, age creeping up on us. And yes, we self-deprecated, then boosted each other up because, more times than not, we see the beauty in our friends before ourselves, no? Anyway, we've agreed to do a challenge with each other, even though we're apart again.
I invite you to do it with us.
I will be sharing some of the recipes we will be trying and using.
Luckily, we have the adventure and activity part going for us.
We may eat like s%*t a ton of the time, but we love to move it, move it.
This challenge we're devising is helping us get back to the eating better part - the most important part.

She shot this one of my climbing up from exploring some caves and crevices.
I was surprised at how my arms are coming along.
I will leave out the part of me being chunky because we also shopped.
We went to the most awesome vintage store. My friend found a vintage Diane von Furstenberg dress and immediately coerced me to try it on. I looked at the size...2 and immediately poo-pooed the idea. My friend was adamant. It was only after the owner came up and warned, after looking me up and down, that the dress was "very, very tiny," and shook her head at me. That sparked something in me - to go behind that curtain. Guess who owns a 'tiny, tiny,' vintage Diane von Furstenberg now?
Goes to show, we don't always see ourselves for how we may actually be...and perhaps others don't either because that owner ate her words and then doted a little on me to try the other vintage designer fashions in her store.

Of course, there was a little fun had too.
This was me tasting a vino at a winery we visited.

And another day while visiting beautiful gardens.

We loved visiting gardens.

I swear we walked ten miles a day!

And here I am back home, and pooped, LOL.
But this morning, I got up and began writing documents, recipes, meal plans, instructions.
I am missing my friend dreadfully, but it's not like we don't talk daily anyway, heehee.
Would you like to join us on our journey to getting our sexy back?
