Dining Room Decor: COMPLETED

One of the goals for this 100 day challenge is completing unfinished projects.  One of my uncompleted projects was my dining room decor...namely the centerpiece.

It all started with the orchid flower arrangement I saw a few years ago, which eventually evolved into the idea of doing the red orchids with the peacock feathers to tie my dining room colors (blue and tan) and living room colors (red and gold) together.  I've had the flowers and the peacock feathers for about a year, before I finally found a bowl that I liked.  Now this is what has been sitting on my dining room table for the last few months, patiently waiting to be completed.

And I have a blank wall that needs "something" but I could never quite figure out "what" in the meantime I re-purposed an iron wall hanging from out of my office to the dining room.

So what is this "Green Smoothie Detox" all about!

On my quest for implementing a healthier diet, I keep hearing the "buzz" about Green Smoothies.  There are sooooooo many posts, "diet" plans and recipes out in blogland about them, at one point I just got overwhelmed.  This clip from ABC News helped me understand how the ingredients in the Green Smoothies work.  And most importantly that this is not really a "diet" but more of a daily detox that should be implemented into your lifestyle.  So I tried this one to start with on my little journey to a healthier ME!

I also ran across a wealth of information about Green Smoothies at the LiveStrong website.

My 100 Day Challenge to an improved ME!

I joined the 100 Day CoCreating your Reality Challenge on FB.   My friend Jennifer (Rawbella), invited me to join this challenge ... and I must say it came along at JUST the right for me.  I am going through a transition in my life right now were things are not quite lining up how I want and need them to be.  The challenge runs from August 1st (tomorrow) through November 9th...but for me it's just the beginning of a NEW ME and a NEW LIFE!  I know as a procrastinator (me) this list seems kinda long, but for some reason the number 10 is speaking to me on the 100 day challenge. 

So here are my goals for the next 100 days!
1) GET ORGANIZED! Clear the clutter in my home office (aka the other bedroom which has turned into a storage room and dumping ground).  That room is starting to remind me of an episode of Hoarders.
2) FOCUS on getting my business going.  Lack of confidence has been my hindrance and holding me back.
2) Remove the excess weight (all 40 lbs of it) so that the BEAUTIFUL CURVACEOUS ME can evolve and LIVE again!  Eating healthier and exercising.
3) Establish and embrace an EXERCISE regimen to improve my health and livelihood.
4) Take my state prep exam class and take the State Exam to get my Real Estate Licence (something I have been putting off WAY tooooooo long!)
5) FINANCIAL FREEDOM!  Pay all some the remainder of small debts I have and take the final steps to clearing off my credit.
6) Lay the ground work toward purchasing a home and/or future rental property.
7) Build better RELATIONSHIPS (Family, friends, and business)
8) COMPLETION! Finish all of these little unfinished projects around my home, and really in my life for that matter.  There are so many things that I have started and not finished and I really need to just get them completed.
9) Learn to SWIM.  And as much as I love to be in water or around water, its really sad for me to admit that at 41 I can't swim, over even float for that matter.
10) Prepare myself for my SOUL MATE :-) I know he's out there and close to finding me.
