…in the gym and happy, even though all I can do is cardio right now…

… it just occurred to me, if someone would come around right now and take my drink order for a fruit smoothie, and then bring it to me. this gym might be perfect… ;-)

.. after a morning meeting talking radio, I’m signing on…

… this summer I will be able to say I’m nationally syndicated on radio, talking mindful living, life balance and healthy lifestyles.  These cranberry orange muffins btw are definitely NOT healthy.  :-)   I opted for coffee (no muffins) since I was fasting this morning.

… whenever I see Fanta Orange for sale (which is not often), I have to get one…

… reminds me of growing up in Rio de Janeiro and weekends at Itanhangá Country Club… walking to the clubhouse after riding my horse and always ordering a “grill cheese sandwich and Fanta Orange” (queijo quente e Fanta Orange)… then swimming the rest of the day in the pool….

… today for the first time in years, I laid down still in the grass, faced the sky and soaked up the sun…

… it was so relaxing and peaceful… why don’t I ever do this!?   Of course, I was lazy and super tired for the rest of the day, so maybe it’s a good thing I DON’T regularly do this… ;-)
