My Heaven

Days pass slowly
I wait to be in my heaven
With the rain... The stars... The smell of sky
And your lips touching mine.
My heart misses yours
And the days I could touch it.
I remember...but you forgot
As you're safe in the darkness
And I am not.
I miss you, but I can't explain why
We were never as close in this life
Than we were long ago.
So I wait for a new one
Where I am wrapped in your arms
And I hear you whisper
"Don't go."

Cleanse and Diet Started

I have started on a colon cleanse and diet of mainly raw food today.  I had the intention of posting a "before" photo, but was too embarrassed to post the pic, so just keeping it for my own reference.  I'd post my starting weight, but that is also too embarrassing :(  In particular, my eternally pregnant looking belly has been a source of shame for pretty much most of my life.

Ever since I started dating after being separated, I gained a lot of the weight I had lost while going to GISW (Get in Shape for Women) in Nashua, working with a personal trainer.  A quote from Marsha Mason in one of my favorite movies, Goodbye Girl, comes to mind... "It's amazing how flabby you get when you're happy".  Happiness may have been the reason for a while... But I basically just stopped caring as much about what I looked like.  If course, it didn't help that my boyfriend eats like a kid whose parents are away on my vacation... And he can afford to since he's very thin.

Basically I began by making my home binge proof and getting rid of all the sweets and unhealthy snack food.  I bought mostly fruits and vegetables... Tofu, tempeh and seasonings that are healthy and I actually really do love.  Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, hummus and snap pea crisps for snacks.

I purchased an herbal cleanse kit at one of my favorite herbal stores... Misty Meadows in Lee NH, which is a two part/two week intestinal repair program.  It's gentle and will prepare my body for the more aggressive Master Cleanse... Which consists of  drinking a lemon, maple syrup, Ceyenne pepper concoction in place of three meals, drinking a laxative tea before bed, and lots of plain water throughout the day.  My herbalist informed me that the Master Cleanse can be quite dangerous if jumped into immediately... So the gentle herbal cleanse will be first.

I also quit drinking diet soda (yet again), and this time I am determined to quit for good.

I'm heading back to the gym with a vengeance too.  I make up excuses not to go, but am usually more than ready to workout once I get there.

I'm looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish in the next few weeks.  Hopefully I will have good results to report :)

Spring is here!

Sun and Rain
The wheel has turned
It's Spring again!

Ostara is time 
To start anew
Plant our intentions
And see them through!

Now On Tumblr

I'm slowly getting the hang of this Tumblr thing.... I'm not sure that its much different than Pinterest, Twitter, and all those other things.  

But its been fun getting my Tumblr all set up.  It appears I need to do some tagging in order to get some followers... but I haven't quite mastered that yet.

Anyway... here I am on Tumblr.  I'll be sharing my loves, likes, and my own personal creations too.  Enjoy :)

He certainly did.  And although he is gone from my life... I miss him every day.

She is Boundless....

Love & Betrayal

There was no greater love than ours
Nothing we could not do
Now everyone around us
Is saying we should be through.

I thought my heart would never again break
But it's in pieces on the floor
Your love was wrapped in lies
I should be showing you the door.

You betrayed me with a woman
Who will never love you like me
She thought it would be easy
But she's barking up the wrong tree.

As long as we fight for each other
We can accomplish all our dreams
We will ignore all the naysayers
And dismiss all their schemes.

You are mine and I am yours
I will battle til the end
My heart will no longer be broken
Our relationship will mend.

I'm your Goddess and you're my God
And this is hardly myth and lore
Together we will rebuild
And be much stronger than before!
