I have decided that once my project 8 X 8 becomes 4 X 8, i.e. I have lost 4 out of 8 pounds that I am supposed to, I am going to award myself (read: make my husband award me) a motivational prize. That is - this cute-little-workout shorts from Roxy! I have been eyeing them (by going to roxy.com everyday) for last 14 days (2 weeks don't have same the effect as 14 days :P), but thought they were a tad-bit expensive ($48) for a mere shorts, which I am going to use to sweat-in! But, hey! you can't put a prize on motivation now, right? *wicked.smile* P.S. Nobody (and I mean nobody) should wear them with flabby legs. That will really be a crime! Yes, really!
I experimented with this delicious and juicy salad I had read about somewhere. It has watermelon, feta cheese and a fresh home-made dressing. Firstly, I cut the melon and cheese in thin triangular slices and placed them on top of each other, consecutively. Then prepared the dressing with olive oil, white-wine vinegar, lemon juice, finely chopped shallots, serrano chillies, and salt. Let it chill until time to serve. It tastes divine and is really filling too. Promise!
Movies & Fashion
Today afternoon, while making the delicious salad and nibbling on watermelon, I also saw a biopic on Coco Chanel (multi-tasking, you see!). What a woman she was, and a strong one at that! My God, she was a real visionary in her field. Even people who are not 'fashion conscious' can appreciate her business-sense and her tough-resilient spirit. She was an illegitimate daughter of a nomadic peddler, raised in an orphanage, who became a legend and a multimillionaire (of course!). Her story is almost like a fairly tale of rising from the French gutter to French Couture. Girl-Power!
