Back on Track!

Back on track! Yesterday I had almond milk over Ezekial cereal with fresh raspberries and blueberries for breakfast, salad with tuna for lunch and baked chicken thighs (couldn't light the grill - no gas?) with salad and sweet potato and some nuts for a snack! I did sneak a Pepsi, but I bought the 7.5 oz. ones to wean me off! :-) AMAZING (there's that word again!) what you can do when you have the time! I know I know, we all have the same 24 hours in a day; it's how we choose to use them!

Today I'm starting my day with a Green Smoothie in my Ninja Kitchen System 100 that I bought last Fall and am just now using. Fresh kale, organic baby romaine, fresh pineapple, blueberries and raspberries! I forgot to put the banana in so I ate that on the side! Really tastes gooood!  Need some inspiration and recipes?  Check out 

I'm determined to make this a habit (I have 40 days!) to keep it going! I even went to my studio and used my 14" high fanny-lifter step stool (from The Firm) for some exercises on Monday afternoon. Going to work out 3 days a week - don't really need extreme 7 day workouts in my life! :-)

Fitness was always my life B.C. (Before Computers) ~ teaching P.E., teaching aerobics, Personal Training, Z-Heath.  So glad to have the time to get back into it!

Mid-day snack as I rearranged furniture ( a past-time of mine!) was cantaloupe, organic grapes, fresh mozzarella cheese and pitted Kalamata olives.  Don't forget to drink plenty of water!  I drink filters water WITH my food, but when I drink a lot of water during the day I lean toward Poland Springs, Fuji  or Evian so that I get the minerals from them.

Late lunch - Salad with organic greens, petite carrots, Roma tomatoes, artichokes, roasted red peppers, black olives, Kalamata olives, cucumbers and Paul Newman Lite Northern Italian dressing.  I'm not a big fan of Lite dressings, but they didn't have the Northern Italian in the regular kind and the sugar content was still pretty low.  Topped it off with a leftover chicken thigh from last night's dinner  and added a slice of Rye bread with real butter to complement the meal.

Left over Ginger & Garlic marinated steak tips with fresh green beans for dinner. it was a good, good, day!

I think I'll try this Raspberry-Watermelon Smoothie tomorrow.

Sneak Peek for Kristin & Stephen “Tie the Knot❣️“

 Each wedding is unique. Even though we basically start with close to the same photo list there are always individual requests that are special to each couple. I try to bring out the essence & individuality of each couple for their special day❣️ Here is the Sneak Peek for Kristin & Stephen's beautiful wedding day! They'd never been to York so when I said we needed photos at Nubble, Kristin said, "If we have time!"  Ummmmm, NO! We need to make time . . . and we're glad we did!    My 3rd wedding in 3 months and final one of 2022 for me!  Two hearts, one from New Hampshire and one from Newfoundland, were united in a small, intimate ceremony surrounded by close family members & lots of love at York Harbor Inn in York, Maine when Kristin and Stephen literally “tied the fisherman’s double knot❣️” on July 6, 2022. Read the story of tying the Fisherman's Knot. Second wedding I’ve done w
On April 19, 2022 a t 2:35 pm, the exact time of my birth 68 years later, I was at my very favorite place, Pemaquid Lighthouse! It worked out perfectly; I had planned on photographing sunrise, but it was raining so I went later in the day.  THIS is 68! I left on my solo secret birthday road trip on Monday April 18th. I made a pit stop at the Yarmouth Information Center to pick up some brochures. A guy in the parking lot saw my CELTS-6 license plate and Celtics hat and started talking about how great Sunday’s game was! :-) Once a year, I always like to go somewhere I haven’t been before. I took a side trip to Land’s End on Bailey Island. Just sorry I never made it there before my friend, Dan Millar, passed away. I want to go back for photos of The Giant Stairs, Lookout Point, Cribstone Bridge and the little lobster shack in Mackerel Cove when it’s a little warmer.  When I lived in Maine I would go to Tortola in April. Now I go from NH to Maine!  LoL     I arrived at Sheepscot Harbour Vi

And just like that . . . 2022 is a Wrap!

It's been a busy 2022 for me & Bev Tabet Photography ! January was spent watching the Celtics, photographing my food 😂and frozen bubbles and attending the NHSPA Photography Show at the Exeter Town Hall Gallery. February was low key with more Celtics games, day knitting and Alpha Xi Sista ZOOMs. I did manage to get out of Dodge in March with a few days in Hull with my Alpha Xi roomie as we took the spectator boat for the Hull Snow Row. Got some great photos including some of rowers from the New Bedford Area. That was followed by a 5-day visit to Ocean Point, Maine with Joan Libby. Both are always a fun time!  I took a little solo 68th birthday trip in April to Sheepscot Harbour Village in Edgecomb, Maine and got to go to my favorite Pemaquid Lighthouse and also Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse for some stormy images. I also got a taste of Spring at the Cider Hill Farm Tulip Fest in Amesbury, MA.   In May I returned to Cider Hill Farm for pick-your-own tulips, photographed a l
