7 asparagus spears

Do you have access to fresh asparagus? I planted some out in a field by my garden, and this should be the year that I can pick enough to keep me happy for a couple of weeks or so. (First year they were too skinny and too few, and the next year I got 8 good spears. Now I hope to get a good bunch as it has had 2 seasons of leaves to compost on top of them - and the winter was real easy this year - and so far the rain seems to be plenty!).

A friend of mine planted them a couple years ago for her ex she is going to be dividing them up between me and another friend. Otherwise I stock up at the Farmer's market. I am not happy unless I have my brussels sprouts and asparagus. Going to be planting my sugar snap peas today since it is moist enough and will be getting more rain this week. Need to see what else I want to plant maybe some onions!!!

Out of curiosity since I noticed I am bloated I stepped on the scale and it says I gained 2 lbs... Not bad since I normally gain 5 and pulled out the measuring tape to measure (it has only been 14 days since I last measured) lost .5" around the chest, 1" around the waist, 1" around the hips, 2" around my neck. I can't complain at all not one single bit. Very proud of myself at this moment :)

Wasn't a very happy camper today. Was stuck inside most of the day and didn't get much outside time :( Today I realized it is now time to eat cooler raw foods. The thought of cooking food isn't appealing like opening the fridge and grabbing fruit or veggies or making a smoothie. I just have to make sure I get enough protein and fat cause to many carbs and low fat & protein = binge eating for me. I want to find a good cold cereal that is GF and has more than 2g protein.... Today was an active rest day for me but didn't feel like a rest day.

Cardio: 25 min weight loss program lvl 5 elliptical, 60 min yoga, 55 min boot camp, 48 min 3.42km walk with dog

Breakfast: 2 tbsp cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter, 1/2c dry oats
Snack: 2 scoops protein powder, 1 tbsp white chocolate wonder, 1 slice millet bread
Lunch: vegetable bean tofu soup
Snack: large green monster smoothie
Supper: Strawberry protein smoothie and 2.5 servings mandarin oranges
Snack: 2 scoops protein powder

Today was a good day. Granted I was stuck inside but we opened up the house and the wind was blowing right in making me feel good. I think I might like raw more than I thought but getting my protein might be a little tricky.... will have to research more to ensure I get my nutrients. Still kinda hungry but I know I have a protein shake coming up before bed.

dried cranberries, 2c purple grapes and 2 scoops protein powder
Snack: Green monster smoothie (kale, spinach, parsley, cucumber, apple, banana, kiwi, Vanilla Warrior Food protein powder,
Vitamineral Greens and Vitamineral Earth and honey... I know not vegan but sounded yummy)
Post workout: 2 scoops protein powder, 1c Mango fruit smoothie blend
Snack: 2 scoops protein powder

Will worry about cardio tomorrow when I go trail hiking. Can't wait look forward to it every weekend and can't wait to save up for once a month trips out of town to hike different trails. First trip will be to Colorado to A see family and B hit the trails with my step brother. Hope my friend can come with me tomorrow!

Trust me the first 31 yrs of my life were filled with self doubt, negative attitude and lots of self inflicted abuse. Now when I start to doubt myself I tell that bitch to go away she isn't welcome in my brain anymore and then usually someone comes up and compliments me or asks how my journey is going. That reaffirms my path even if I know the path I am on is right

No wonder I like you! This photo brings back many nice memories of my best friend thru high school! You look alot like her, and she had a sunny personality too! We made quite the combo back then. We were both cheerleaders, and she was my sturdy base, while I twirled and was part of the middle pyramid during those days. Haven't heard from her for a long time now. . .

First thing I noticed was the delts! You have got quite a shoulder on you! The forearms were next, and then the triceps/biceps. You do have quite the potential for building MORE muscle! Your wrists are strong, are they not? I can usually tell by the forearms (strong wrists) and calves if a person can build alot of muscle for BB.

Enjoy the nice weather! I know I am!
