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.

You are right, the unhealthy foods like chips and pop are sold in bigger sizes than the olden days. But I am still waiting for a pack of cheetos that has 4 in it or something. We do a lot of soup beans to economize. I can mash them up and make fake hamburgers with seasoning in them.

A quote from the Dalai Lama

"There are only two days in a year that nothing can be done. One is called 'yesterday' and the other is called 'tomorrow', so today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO and mostly, LIVE."

So all I really have to do is live for today and take each one as it comes. If I do each day well I can succeed.

Thanks for the comments on my blog! People and their crazy diet ideas can sometimes make me nuts!!! LOL! You are completely right though, a few small changes can make a difference & the fact it's something we can do forever just makes it even better!
