Monarch of All I Survey

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 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.

~~~~The Five "W"'s of Life~~~~

WHO you are is what makes you special.
Do not change for anyone.

WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery.
Do not be afraid to explore.

WHEN life pushes you over,
you push back harder.

WHERE there are choices to make,
make the one you won't regret.

WHY things happen will never be certain.
Take it in stride and move forward.

These 5 "W"'s are
A Wonderful Way to Wake-up on Wednesday!!!
Enjoy the day!!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I noticed you are on the Fast diet team. My co-worker gave me this book and I have been promising to read it. I too have been on a two year long Plateau and need something to really kick start my weight loss. So I guess there is no time like the present. I will read it this week. I will let you know how it goes.
