When in doubt, let your horse do the thinking!

Good grief - where did 2012 go?? Seems like only yesterday the world was worrying about Y2K when the calender turned to the year 2000 and now we have made it thru the Mayan predictions and managed to roll over into 2013.
Another year older this month (January) and I am going to adjust my goals. Was soooo nice to go on a holiday to the Dominican in December. Really has recharged me and I am ready.

Good grief - where did 2012 go?? Seems like only yesterday the world was worrying about Y2K when the calender turned to the year 2000 and now we have made it thru the Mayan predictions and managed to roll over into 2013.
Another year older this month (January) and I am going to adjust my goals. Was soooo nice to go on a holiday to the Dominican in December. Really has recharged me and I am ready.
It is still a struggle to lose these last 10 pounds and as each year goes by the struggle is harder but what the heck I can do it. Will focus on calories vs calories out so that will likely mean ramping up my exercise over the winter. Always easier for me to be active during the snow free months as ranch chores keep me outside most of the day. Winter not so much and I gotta tell you - minus 17 C again this morning and still dark at 7 a.m. does not call to me to be outside.
I am going to try for small monthly goals and see how that works for me.
I have posted a picture near my computer my beach vacation and think that will help me stay motivated!

I have enjoyed reading your blogs this week about the adventures on the ranch and with the logging trucks too. Hope all is well, the calves and Mums are warm and comfy and resting well. I hope that you are doing well too. It has been a busy, challenging week with all you had going on. Have a well-deserved, restful weekend. Go STARS!!

Hi, I am pleased to meet you and thank you for commenting on my blog. Yes, I picked up a real goody bug, just kept hanging on. The thing is I rarely get a cold or anything so this was a surprise. I am really paying attention to what I eat, working on it. I hope you are enjoying your week-end and have a great Sunday!! emoticon emoticon emoticon June
