First week almost over

I can't believe that my week has gone so well....I shouldn't probably say "I can't believe" but it has been a good week. Just kind of getting in the swing of things and feeling like This is do-able.Trust the process right? I have meditated twice this week and I thought that this was going to be my biggest strugle, but  Ifound it was actually quite nice. I don't have a lot of space in my house that is not open so I just sat in front of my sink. I was  able to really concentrate for 5min 38 sec. but hey it is a start. I wanted to pass along a website that I LOVE it is There are recipes that are family friendly and the ingredients are all on the food list. I use it a lot for recipes and the recipes are FABULOUS! The one down fall is that the calorie info is not on there but I just look up each ingredient and get as close as I can to the calorie amount. Can't wait to see you all on saturday


  1. Great that this week has felt good to you, and I love that you meditated in front of your sink! It reminds me of the beautiful song called Holy As A Day Is Spent by Carrier Newcomer that speaks to the peace and holiness that can be found in the everyday things we do/see:

    Holy is the dish and drain, The soap and sink, the cup and plate
    And the warm wool socks, and the cold white tile, Showerheads and good dry towels,
    And frying eggs sound like psalms
    With a bit of salt measured in my palm.
    It’s all a part of a sacrament
    As holy as a day is spent.
    Holy is the busy street And cars that boom with passion’s beat, And the check out girl, Counting change, And the hands that shook my hands today.
    Hymns of geese fly overhead And stretch their wings like their parents did.
    Blessed be the dog That runs in her sleep, The catch that wild and elusive thing.
    Holy is a familiar room and the quiet moments in the afternoon, And folding sheets like folding hands To pray as only laundry can.
    I’m letting go of all I fear Like autumn leaves of earth and air. For summer came and summer went. As holy as a day is spent.
    Holy is the place I stand, To give whatever small good I can. The empty page, the open book Redemption everywhere I look.
    Unknowingly we slow our pace In the shade of unexpected grace, With grateful smiles and sad lament As holy as a day is spent.
    And morning light sings “providence” As holy as a day is spent.

  2. Way to go, Becky!
    And thanks for the everydaypaleo tip. That is one I had not found yet!
    ps., love that song!

  3. Nice work, Becky! I ran into everydaypaleo a while ago too. I agree: GREAT RECIPES! Now if I could just get them ready in advance so I'm not starving with uncut veggies and work to do. :) I love your enthusiasm!! What an encouragement!

  4. Way to go Becky, One of my days of meditating was in front of my bathroom sink too... LOL.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone too :)
