Cold November Rain

Hello Lovelies! Is it rainy, blustery and cold where you are? It's almost hurricane-like here. Been raining for two days and looking to continue for a third. This kind of weather combined with darkness at 5pm gives me a little case of the blues. So in order to combat my oogy feelings I headed to the gym this evening for a 5pm Strive circuit training class. However due to traffic, flooding and construction on EVERY SINGLE ROUTE I missed the class. In fact at 5:20 I made a u-turn to head home since traffic was at a standstill. Frustration. It's all good though. I am making a healthy fish burrito for dinner gonna turn on this weeks episode of Biggest Loser and catch up on some Dietribe for a little inspiration.

My portions this week have been really awesome, well except for yesterday's lunch with friends but other than that right on point. Plus everything consumed has been real food...nothing processed. I am working on my portions first and once I feel I have a good control on that I am going to focus on getting my caloric intake to 1800 or less. I feel that this will be a good amount of healthy calories for me to start with and then slowly decrease as the loss begins to plateau. Spark.com get ready to help this calorie counting challenged individual get her butt in gear.

Business is most definitely picking up for the holidays, which is awesome to the max. That being said I will try to keep up with my blogging. With the move coming up in January I have been spending a lot of time de-cluttering, weeding out and organizing my endless amount of crap. I want to get on top of this before the holiday madness begins.

I gotsta question for you folks. What do you do as a creative outlet? I am searching for mine. I would love to have more than one. I feel my passion for photography rekindling which I am so stoked about but I feel I need more. I was so artsy fartsy in high school, in fact I really wanted to be a curator but as will happen, life got in the way. :) I hope to make a vision board this weekend that will help me realize my dreams and really want creativity to be the focus of it. So lurkers, come out and play!

Congrats on keeping right on track, weather here in San Antonio is crazy, rainy then humid then hot then cold..lol I think it needs medications for its modd swings lol. Blogging has helped with my creative outlet, it helps me to type down thoughts and stuff, I love cooking too though, bringing all sorts of ingrienients and spices together :). HAve a great night...

Hey there... I too am starting to get really into photography.

My creative outlet has been researching SLR's and sending my husband links as a hint! :) haha

I think you should turn Grumpy Gus' killing shed into an art studio.

Btw, just to clarify for those not in the know, "killing shed" is a joke.

Angel6033-- I hear you on the cooking front. In fact I think I may like baking a litte too much. :)

Amy-- isn't photography great?! :D Btw, what are SRL's?

Retainer Girl-- I think that is a fine idea!

I need to GET some hobbies! Preferably that don't include baking (because I suck at it here) and don't include spending money (because we don't have any.) It gets dark here at 3:30, which oddly, just makes me want to eat and sleep. I guess the sleeping is free.

And I didn't know you wanted to be a curator! You can get a masters in art curation for free in Sweeeeeden....(hint, hint)
