Tag Archives: updated weight loss photos


Good Morning to all. I am on a weekend away with my sweet husband James. We are in La Jolla CA and we went to Ocean beach CA. Now we are heading up the coast to Encinitas CA. I am off my routine but I will be back to the grind tomorrow. We love to do weekend away every month or so, and every time we go away we plan our next adventure when we get home.

Here is a few pics of me to update my weight loss. I finally hit the 35 pound mark so I am officially half way to my goal and I feel great. The journey continues though, and I am determined to become stronger and tackle all of my fitness goals and aspirations. I am so grateful for the support I have, and on a weekend away I am full of love of life, people, animals, and nature.

Off for now. 
Happy Monday


Nature feeds your soul, and this tree was on my bucket list for California. It is the largest Fig Tree in the USA. The beauty and size were unparalleled. I had goosebumps, the same type of goosebumps I had when I saw the ocean for the first time.

You are not supposed to jump the barrier but I did, I had to take photos with my tree. Look how massive it is. 

The Pillars of Wisdom

The trees of life
Inspire to stand tall,
Grow old with grace;
Offer uplifted palms 
To those in need
Of shelter and shade
From the erratic
Elements of earth.
The trees of life
Teach patience;
Tolerance of strangers,
Fighting against prejudices.
All are welcome under
Their emerald canopies,
Be it animal
Bird or human.
The trees of life
Nurture passion,
Opening to all who
Weather their storms.
Embracing the breeze
And the warmth from
The mesmerizing kiss
Of the scorch of the sun.
The trees of life
Show beauty is timeless,
Greenery does not fade
As does fleeting years of youth.
Faith in mother nature,
Every winter is followed
By blossoming months
Of an expectant spring.
The trees of life
Our ancient mentors,
Surviving mortality;
Reaching for the heavens.
I am a mere pupil
Hair swaying in the wind,
Never taking for granted
The life of trees.

Hello to all and Happy Sunday and Martin Luther King Day tomorrow. Here are some updated photos of our first weekend away since Palm Springs.James does not always like to be in photos so it is just me.  32 pounds gone, and about 30-40 more to go. I am happy with the results so far but I have a lot more hard work to do. Wishing you a beautiful bright Sunday. Namaste’ Love and Light.
