Talking to Dovie...

Measurement day.......
1mm lost.....
BUT..... Muscle up! Fat down!


Could be better... but it could be a lot worse.... so I had a loss, taking that loss and running with it danging and waving my arms and looking like a nutter but that's ok cause I can always blame lack of carbs or at my age even menopause......

Diet has been changed, training has been changed, attitude was stuck on shitty but has now also been changed...


Dinner is now white fish so I had grilled Snapper with Kaffir Lime leaves from our Dovies Tree.


Dovie is the little grey Peaceful Dove that has nested in the small but spiny Kaffir Lime tree which shades our rubbish bins. Dovie is not the smartest bird in the world and her nest pretty much consists of 19 twigs and not a lot else unless she is in it then it is 19 twigs and one Dovie.

We think Dovie has had one baby so far this year, there was remnants of an egg one day that looked hatched not just dumped, but it is very hard to tell as she has left her nest for days at a time then suddenly she comes back and sits like she is sitting on the best egg in the world...

We bought a nesting box took the lid off (after being told Dovies do not like lids) and have left it close to her exiting gathering of twigs, but she is steadfast in her twiggy nest and just sits and watches us go to the rubbish and recycle bins every day. She never blinks at us, just watches us chase the geckos away from the lids before we close them so tails are not lost, she watches Hubby on rubbish morning shooing the geckos from the bins so they don't get taken away, she listens to me chat to her about my world and problems but never offers any Dovie logic, I'm pretty sure she thinks I am talking to the Kaffir Limes and that I can not see her fluffy little bum sticking out through the 19 twiggy nest.
So I am ready to start my new week, my fish tasted amazing with fresh Lime leaves, Thai Basil and Garlic, and now I have a new yummy meal on my diet that is supposed to be hard... and best of all I get to say hello to Dovie every evening as I pick my fresh Kaffir leaves..
