Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
NIGHTSKYSTAR is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Time to update!!!!
A bit about me: I have several jobs, as the market where I live is very slow, like many are!! I first and foremost am a Mom...my favorite job!! I have 3 grown kids..but they will always be my kids no matter how old they are!
I own a small custom bakery, which is across the street from my home. I specialize in wedding and celebration cakes and you can often see a picture of one posted on my blog!
Then comes the horse show announcing..I do this mostly for fun..I grew up with horses, my daughter showed for years and we had quarter horses, and I have one of those voices, so there you have it!!!
I had a knee replacement with major complications, and its been a long haul coming back. It will never be fully ok, but we do with what we are dealt, right?
I met my fall goal of 30 pounds, mostly by switching my food plan to keto. Never in a million years thought this carb addict would be able to do it, but doing it i am. So, new goal as of today is 26.8 pounds. Isnt that a marathon or something?? Would love to be there by July 1....
I won't give up!!!
I'm on the winter 5% team...GO FIRECRACKERS!!
exercise: shooting for 120 mins a day. EVERY DAY.
Add weights 4 days a week along with the cardio and toning. At this point i was only doing them 3 days a week.
Work on making food LOW priority instead of thinking about it constantly.
I do beachbody 21 day fix, hiphop abs, leslie sansone videos, and i walk. walk. and walk some more!
ok here goes:
I am first and foremost a Mom. My 3 grown kids are so important to me!
I have 2 cats, my Newfoundland, Lucy--light of my life besides my kids!! She keeps me sane...
I have several jobs: I own and operate a bakery, I'm a horse show announcer. I am involved with my alma mater on the alumni board of directors.
I love all things Harry Potter, am a proud DHOH for Hufflepuff House on our team here.
I love to read.. Love movies, Classic Rock and a little (very little) Country for music.
I love to swim and hike, love the snow, hate hot weather unless i'm near water i can BE IN.
ok i'm done!
Secrets of Success
| Pounds lost: 104.2
No, my dog doesn't have a UTI. She has dementia and gets confused. It was raining when she went outside and I didn't check to make sure she had squatted so maybe she didn't like the wet grass. She paces non-stop now when she's awake, too, and may have forgotten that she was inside. She only has accidents when I'm gone, not every day, which is another clue. I've had a dog with a UTI and this is different so I'm pretty sure it's related to be 16 and having dementia. And being so old and getting confused she doesn't like being crated as I've never crated her in the past and it super stresses her. So I have to live with this for however many months we have left and it could be a good many months!
