Day 10

Standard

Good morning Gia

 

How are you?

Early  morning again for me today, even though the girls are not here. I managed to do my meditation and am preparing for some friends to pop in for a Thermomix demonstration. Do you know about Thermomix?

It is a super, duper kitchen machine, which weighs, chops, stirs, cooks and steams. We have had one for over 3 years now and I would not want to be without it. You can get them in SA too, do have a look.

It was a lovely morning, with lots of ideas and of course at the end of it, lots of food to try.

Now we are preparing for our trip to London tomorrow to go and see the Olympic male gymnasts. I have bought train tickets for the girls and me, G has his monthly ticket. The Olympic tickets actually come with a free travel card, so we only need to pay from Feltham a few stops from Ascot. I’m really looking forward to see it all and will report back.

 

Coming back to my meditation, it is still about the heart, but the giving heart:

“Today and ever day I find simple ways to give to everyone I meet”

Sounds like a good idea, don’t you think?

 

Lots of love

Day 8

Standard

Good morning Gia

 

I hope you are well. We are having another glorious day hear in Ascot I wish you were here too.

I have had my breakfast and enjoyed my meditation.

Today we are focussing on the heart centre, did you know that the mantra for the heart is yum?

My thoughts were all over the show, as I kept thinking of links to yum.

Yummy was the first to come to mind, and there is a saying in German, love goes through the tummy. I’m a little obsessed with food and eating at the moment. The only reason for this is that I’m trying to loose a few pounds, my jeans feel rather tight around the tummy. Whenever I try to shift some weight I get like this, I think about food constantly.

Never mind, my hummus is made and we are off to have a picnic with some friends in the beautiful Savill Gardens.

Hope your day brings you love too

Royal Juice

Standard

Dear Gia

I have just completed my walk around Virginia Water Lake with weights around my ankles!!!

Why do I listen to G ? I must say it makes me feel like I’m as light as a feather, just wish the scales would agree. I know I have been picking a lot,but the pounds are just creeping up and up.

But I have earned my juice, which has the following ingredients today:

1 apple

1 orange

1 celery stick

1 carrot

piece of ginger

delicious and fit for any royal, at which point I would like to introduce you to M’s golden jubilee hat.

Hope you are having a good day

Lots of  love

Monday juice

Standard

Dear Gia

I hope you had a good weekend. We had a lovely time in Cheltenham, we were all pretty and dressed up ready for the high tea. It was a great afternoon and most of all AA enjoyed herself and was truely surprised.

We spent the night and still managed to enjoy some time at home, in the garden during the afternoon and even had a braai, our first this summer.

Now it is back to Monday and the grind of chores. I desperately need to russell up some business and have procrastinated like there is no tomorrow. I have made my juice for the day and just added everything

1/2 beetroot

2 apples

1 celery stick

2 kale leaves

1 carrot

piece of ginger

I think that was about it, I’m hoping this will give me enough energy to see me through the day or maybe even week?

Hope you are having a good start to the week

Lots of love

Detox Juice

Standard

Dear Gia

 

well the sun is still shining and I have made another juice today. It is called a carrot deep cleanser and if you would like to try this one too, this is what you need to do:

3 carrots

1/2 applw

1/2 beetroot

1 stick celery

3 large ale leaves

It has a slight taste of mother earth, hopefully this will ground me and give me enough energy to get through the day

Hope you are having a lovely day too

 

Lots of love

Summer Time

Standard

Dear Gia

The sun is shining and we will be having a gloriuos day today, apparently it will be 27 degrees!!!

What better to do than get the juicer out and have some healthy juice. I opted for  carrot, apple and celery, delicious. If you don’t  already have one, you should get yourself a juicer and if possible a masticating one.

I have the Matstone 6 in 1 juicer and love it to bits. I use it more in the summer, but as always have all intentions to use it all year round, as after I tasted my juice today and I know how fresh it is.

Hope you get to juice too
