My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the Air

What a night.  We had strong storms through the night, and poor G had a very rough night, so in turn, so did I.  I tried to get him on our bed with us, but that is not what he wanted.  After a LONG time of him with his paws on the bed, trying to get our attention, I got up and he took me to “his” corner in the closet.  I finally just got down on the floor with him, and once he could keep his paw on me, he settled down.  Trust me, the closet floor is NOT comfortable!

I apologize that I did not get a post done yesterday.  Between trying to get work done, and getting my hair done, I just did not have the time.  In fact, I worked much longer last night, and still, did not get everything done.  BTW, I did get my hair TRIMMED, just a few inches off the ends, and a rinse.  Here is the before pictureIMG_0471.jpg  and this is the after picture.


I realize this does not look like much a change for you, but to me, it was BIG.  I have already made my next appointment, so that I KEEP my hair healthy. This just goes along with everything else that I am doing to have a healthier lifestyle.  I know I need to get my hair trimmed more that once a year!  I also bought some good shampoo the stylist recommended.

Speaking of healthier and less toxins in my life.  I did get my Branch Basics cleaning kit and Boost the other day.  I have now had the time to try this several times.  I have to be VERY honest, I really do like this.  The spray cleaner does an amazing job, what I feel is MUCH better then the previous brand I was using.  It doesn’t really have any scent, and cleans up easily.  I have also used the “Boost” several times.  I have used in my laundry, the bathroom and kitchen, and I really like this as well.  Again, there is no chemical smell,  it cleans well, and dissolves very quickly.  I may have to break down and try the laundry detergent as well.  You can click on my Branch Basics site

And check out their safer cleaning products and place your order.  From now until April 5th, if you order the Starter Kit, and enter Code Tamiesjourney you will get 15% off.  If you try this, let me know what you think.

And of course, I have to mention on more time, the Safer Skin Care products you get from Beauty Counter.  I just received a few more items I ordered, product-images-1039-imgs-bc_bc_2-plumpingfacialmist_selling01_web  I got this Facial Mist that I absolutely love.  In fact, I had to use this right away, it just gives you a little afternoon boost, kind of like a pick me up.  Be sure to look at my Beauty Counter Website where you can find all of the Safer Skin Care Products.

Be sure to place that order.  Remember, if you order $75 before shipping and taxes, I will send you a Full Size Product absolutely free from me!   I am also hosting an Open Social until March 22.  If you do have questions, just shoot me an e-mail

I knew I was not going to get a walk in this morning, since it was raining so hard, so I got on the treadmill and got a pretty good jog in.  I averaged 12:30 MPH, for 1.5 miles, which is not a bad pace for me.  After next Tuesday, I will have lots of time to improve that time.

I am not sure that I will be able to post on Monday, (that is the day I have my procedure) what I may try is to do a post on Sunday, and then just publish it Monday, but I know that I am going to have a lot to do on Sunday as well.

I am trying to learn about how to “properly” eat, meaning if I need to cut fat out of my diet for at least a time after the procedure.  It seems that fat causes more issues, so I maybe need to start counting my macros again and really watch the fat intake.  I will learn one step at a time.  I do somewhat plan after this, I am going to get even more seriass about my eating, exercise and just overall health.  Wow, the poor hubs, he has to put up with all of this.  The best way for me to approach this, is just do it and don’t talk about it.  That is why I have this blog, soon to be podcast, so that I can tell all of you readers what I am doing, and get your input.  THANKS!!!

But, the point of that was I am not sure I will post on Monday, but I will be back on Tuesday and I will let you know that everything is GREAT again!

Ok kids, I apologize for my shorter post today, but I have to get more done, I am trying to work ahead, (Is there such a thing) so I get everything done before Monday.  I also tried to GET ALL of the laundry caught up today, and a little cleaning, so I will not have much to do the early part of next week.  You know I am VERY OCD and if I have things to get done, it will drive me nuts.

So, be sure to check out my Branch Basics site, my Beauty Counter Site, buy something an help support this blog soon to be podcast.  And, don’t forget, to leave me a comment below, let me know what on your mind.  And, last but not least, be sure to come back next week for more.  Until then


and have a Great Weekend.
