Magical Musings With Basil

by HEAB on May 9, 2011

Operation De-Love Handle officially starts today. The Rx I was on to increase my milk supply while breastfeeding also increased my girth. I won’t go into numbers, but let’s just say there were several meltdowns involved. However, in the end, it was totally worth it. I have no specific plan in mind, but I am going to keep avoiding sugar as I feel my best when it’s not part of my diet. I’d also like to incorporate a couple of HIIT sessions a week, even if that means nothing but running up the hill next to our house with the stroller…I can already hear the neighbors...What is that girl with the pink hair doing? She’s always outside taking photos of her breakfast, and now she keeps running up and down the hill, getting nowhere. Hehe, I jest. My neighbors have accepted my crazy ways and love me for it. After all, someone’s gotta provide the entertainment around here. It’s too quiet.

So yeah, I want to lose some poundage and tone up a bit. The toning will happen with yoga, and I also hope to take more restorative yoga classes. Yesterday’s Hatha Opening class was magical, and my hips and shoulders need some magic these days.

My hair could also use a little magic. A new haircut perhaps? Perhaps not, but the pink shall remain.

My magical mess of a lunch…


That would be 1/2 a Vidalia onion sauteed in a pat of ghee with spinach and grilled chicken. To the skillet, I then added 2 whisked eggs and some fresh chopped basil, attempting to make an omelet of sorts. Omelet toppings included avocado pesto (1/2 avocado mashed together with minced basil – lots and lots of basil) and fresh ground pepper. Basil plant = Happy Heather.

I leave you with these magical words…

Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
