~Photo-a-day~ Sept 17 – Sept 23

Hi everyone!

This week I’ve been trying to get my schedule back on track. A brief relationship in July knocked me off my normal routine and I spent all August just trying to get motivated to get back on track. Well after that relaxing week in North Carolina with my parents at the beginning of the month…it was just what I needed…I’m happy to say I’m back to my regiment of getting up at 4:30 a.m. and doing my work-out before I head out the door for the day. I make this possible by actually GOING to bed by 10:30 at night. I’m feeling more awake this week and am awaking in the morning by myself (thanks to my wonderful parents for waking me up last week, it’s always a rough start=) It’s so freeing to have so much accomplished before I even start for work. Goodbye to those morning of awaking minutes before I am suppose to be at work.

As you know I LOVE dieting so I’ve been trying this one for ten days…and I’m tempted to go on for thirty…NO gluten, NO sweeteners, NO meat, and NO dairy. I kicked all the starchy vegetables out, as well. So what is left to eat?!?!? lots of veggies…lol actually not much, but it’s been so fun. So far I believe I’ve only eaten a little butter, I think mom had put some on the green beans I ate one evening. At least the tasted like they did. Other than that I haven’t cheated and I’m on day ten=) I’ve been experimenting with quinoa, I actually prepared it once for breakfast – it wasn’t too bad. Have you ever cooked with quinoa? You can prepare veggies a million different ways, but a salad is always the easiest=)

Enjoy the pictures, can’t believe Autumn is here already. And I’ve taken photo-a-day for almost a year!

Day 260


my delicious breakfast=) tomatoes are a breakfast food right???? okay, so I was a bit hungry…hahaIMG_9563-001

Day 261

~everyday I…~

everyday I’m doing one of these workout. I’m loving it! Very intense…IMG_9579-002Day 262


This is sorta embarrassing, but I do work for Amish. This is the light I use in my office (in the mornings) when I don’t want to heat the room up. The gas light is very warm and unless my office is cold I don’t turn it on. Normally I work in a naturally lighted office…I have a lamp by my main desk but that’s all the extra light.IMG_9594-001

Day 263


milkweed pods are all dried out now…JT just loved to open them and watch all the seeds blow away. Who hasn’t done this as a kid?IMG_9740-001

Day 264


Day 265

So here’s another peek into what my world is like. This is my bosses house, right out my office window. He’s been sighting his gun in…haha…all ready for deer season.IMG_9822-001

Day 266


my day was so full! Leaving work to rush home, swallow some dinner, and make it to another lady’s house within the hour. I do some bookkeeping for her. IMG_9833-001

Which photos did you like best??




  1. The scrambled eggs, cucumber and tomato looks wonderful. I do remember milkweed and something about how John Carpenter, aka Johnny Appleseed introduced that plant into the Ohio River Valley, long story. Great pictures
