How to lose weight without feeling deprived

It’s been two months since my last high tea diet post so I thought an update is in order.

I can fit into all my pants again and my husband Ryan doesn’t feel like his weight is spiraling out of control.

Now that we have the diet part more or less figured out Ryan started doing an evening workout on a vibration plate.

It’s basically an exercise device you stand on that vibrates forcing your muscles to contract involuntarily.

He says it helps him lose more weight and he gets an energy boost at night from it.

Important messages and family stuff

Hello and welcome to my Medium Horoscopes or Mediumscopes.

The first part takes a look at important messages you could be receiving over the next few months.

This could be through emails, phone calls, or regular mail.

The second part focuses on how close friends or family members are affecting your life.

I noticed some of the signs could be receiving money from family or friends.

Maybe people are still recovering from all the money spent during the holidays.

My Virgo Mediumscopes were pretty on point for both.

You might hear some juicy gossip about a coworker or friend very soon.

It’s best to keep it to yourself because…


Yoga, Tai Chi, and mantras are great for more active meditators

I am not a big fan of meditation in the typical sense.

I have done the focus on your thoughts or your breath types, but they just seem to require a lot of extra effort.

I much prefer the more physical forms of meditation, like yoga, Tai Chi or mantras.

I find it easier to focus on something that requires me to move my body slowly and way more fun.

I think the meditation…


Happiness and fun stuff…

Welcome to my Medium horoscopes or Mediumscopes.

I am trying something new, so this post will be 2 sets of horoscopes combined.

Part 4 will take a look at the happiness in your life right now or how to achieve happiness.

Part 5 covers things and events that you might enjoy.

I wrote these on separate days, but it looks like some of them actually complimented each other.

My Virgo Mediumscopes played well with each other

You may get news about an event you are invited to. Be careful about accepting though, because you might end up with conflicting plans.

We received 2 invitations recently.

A lovely ritual to calm your mind, body, and spirit

I talk a lot about coffee here, but I am actually more of a tea fan.

It’s much easier to brew and generally kinder on my stomach.

I just put 4 tablespoons of loose tea or 4 tea bags in a teapot and fill it up 3/4 of the way with warm water.

I let it steep for about 3–5 minutes and then enjoy it slowly.

You can use 1 teabag in a mug of warm water, steeped for 1–2 minutes if you want something more convenient to do.

You also really don’t have to do any complex tea ceremonies…


Career and relationships matters

Welcome to my Medium horoscopes or Mediumscopes.

This post covers matters concerning your career and your relationships, both business and personal.

I am going to try going back to writing two sets of horoscopes at a time and see how I feel about it.

My Virgo Mediumscope was intriguing.

You may be given a chance to work collaboratively on a project for someone important or well known in the literary circles.


A simple writing trick to ramp up your creativity

I write a lot of different things about a lot of different things. I am still figuring out all the topics I want to write about.

There are so many things I could write about and most of the time my mind is blank when I sit down to write.

I read somewhere if you get stuck in the middle of writing just put down “I don’t know what to write” and you keep typing stuff.

I found myself starting most of my writing sessions that way.

I would just start by writing down my random thoughts like “I don’t know what to write about and I am going to keep…


Legal stuff for your marriage, business or will

Welcome to my Medium horoscopes or Mediumscopes.

In this post, we take a look at what’s going on in your sign surrounding legal documents. It could about marriage, business or even wills.

There was an overall theme of hope and things working out in the long run which is always nice to write.

My Virgo Mediumscope was thought provoking

You might need to sign an important document either concerning a will or a marriage.


Add chocolate, coffee and something spicy if you want more mental focus

My husband Ryan got us an ice cream maker for Christmas so we could start making our own ice cream flavors.

I think ice cream is his favorite dessert next to cheesecake and what better addition than adding cannabis, chocolate, and coffee to the mix.

The chocolate coffee ice cream turned out very tasty although a bit more spicy than we were both expecting.

I got a tummy ache from eating too much of it but it was yummy so I don’t regret it at…


What‘s in the cards for your sign?

Hello and welcome to my Medium horoscopes or Mediumscopes.

For this post, I took a look at travel or movement. This could be you traveling, money or even messages going from place to place.

I noticed a lot of the signs had a theme of work-related traveling or moving. It sounds like business has picked up during this time of the year.

My Virgo Mediumscope was an interesting warning.

You could come across some deceitful people masquerading as friends or allies. They are not in your camp, so keep that in mind.
