Neil Young Makes a Spring Day Even Better

Today was a beautiful spring day. At lunch, after eating a grilled salmon salad at Panara's, I sat with the windows down in my car, a cool breeze drifting by as I sat knitting on the Forest Canopy Shawl and listening to one of my favorite musicians of all time, the Neil Young's Greatest Hits CD. What a treat! It was really relaxing and fun.
Best of all, it's Friday! Yes, an end to a long (too long) week. Peace and tranquility, please find me this weekend.
I did really really WELL on both the diet and exercise front this week. I didn't drink coffee. I didn't drink soda. I drank water, had hot lemon water or green tea in the morning instead of caffeine. My exercise was walking. Didn't eat junk food or stress-eat all week, even though it was a challenging week. I'm really proud of myself. Whew!
Now let's see how I do on a less-structured weekend. Neil Young, keep me calm and reflective, okay? Oh yeah, I need to do that for myself.

Sounds like a great way to relax. I have been stress eating all week - and need to figure out how to stop doing that! Enjoy the weekend.

Jeanne, well I was motivated by my blood test results. Did you read the entry below? Entitled "Am I Falling Apart?" Hmmm. Yeah, that helped curb me of many of my addictions this week.
