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 enjoyed the photos of your beautiful home and discovered we share a love of Diana Gabaldon. I love her books and often re- re-read them while waiting for the next one. lol

We sent a semi load of calves to market yesterday so we are off to watch them sell at the auction tomorrow..the prices seem to be holding up good...a very great time to be in the cattle business..and yes..hope the new management at XL will make a positive difference!
