Another “Smit-List”, Negative Calorie Foods, and Feeling Grateful.

14 December 2011

Another “Smit-List”, Negative Calorie Foods, and Feeling Grateful.


I’m convinced grapefruit is a negative calorie food . . .as I enjoy the succulent sweetness & the aroma of citrus, I work through a very sophisticated calculation to realize I burned about 500 calories peeling the thick skinned sucker. ANYWAY . . . as I nosh on my favorite treat . . . I listen to my favorite holiday tunes and feel enveloped by the scent of my FAV Anthropologie candle . . .and I think to myself “how freaking lucky and blessed am I?” I’ve just come back from spending quality time with my family in Montana, I’ve got amazing people in my life, I’m working on my first ever website, my business has grown leaps and bounds, my fiance and I are working on our new home together and I am relaxed, happy and grateful for it all.

Get ready: here is my “feel good” smit list for the evening:
