Snow on December 5, 2013
I'm the Queen of my own little castle. Long live the Queen!
Unfortunately, I am also the parlormaid, the chambermaid, the housemaid, the kitchenmaid, the scullery maid, the gardenmaid, the Home Secretary and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Long live the staff!
I get many fine workouts at the end of a hoe, weedeater or vacuum. I also have a workout friend, and we hike along the river for an hour each morning.
I reached my goal of high school weight in 2010. That was a good primary goal, because I had been only a little chubby in my teens. Then I stalled on the longest plateau in history. I wanted to lose a little more, but it seemed impossible. I tried EVERY plateau-busting suggestion I found! Just recently I began alternate day fasting, which worked well for my son. Finally I broke that pesky plateau!
I am concerned about developing age-related chronic diseases like dementia , and research shows that intermittant fasting helps in these areas...and a little weight-loss is a bonus!
My fitness goal is to to be the kids' "Extreme Grandma" and just keep moving, so there's no question about when they should put me on the other side of the flowerbed.

Wouldn't it be wonderful
If every day we're living
We stopped to count our blessings
Like we do on Thanksgiving?
If every day we took the time
For gratefully expressing
Our thankfulness for every joy
And every little blessing...
Wouldn't it be wonderful
If we would just remember
Gratitude's a year-round thing
Not only for November!
Wishing you many blessings to count and many joys to remember
this Thanksgiving Day and all the days that follow! Your support and encouragement has been a real blessing in my journey!

T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learned to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude... our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me
by Judith.A. Lindberg
Thanks for the blessings, encouragement and support you bring to me here on my health and fitness journey!
