Kiwi - My Solomon Island Eclectus
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Now is finally the time to do something about my weight and lack of energy. I am also concerned about my health. I did It! I finally completed college, since I did it on line and I cannot afford to drive to Iowa I was not able to participate in the graduation ceremony which is kind-of a bummer, but I will my degree regardless. Determination does pay off, I have been working, off and on, towards my degree for at least 20 yrs.
My goal is to lose 40 lbs. so I will feel better about myself. I also hope to gain more energy too.
I am watching calories and fat I need to reduce the calories eat because I am on the computer for school most of the day and get little exercise. But that is changing, I have started exercising I just need to get it into my routine, every time I plan to do it something comes up that interfers with the time I want to exercise, like Sunday I did not work it in and then it got too late to do it.
I am originally from Louisville, KY but moved to Indiana when I started high school. I currently live in Corydon, IN. which is only about 20 miles across the river from Louisville. I live on a mini-farm and love it. We had three rescue horses, but had to let them go when my husband retired and I had lost my job. But I made sure that they went to a great couple who are going to open a nonprofit org. for children who are handicapped to have the opportunity to ride a horse. I believe this is wonderful because I have what a difference animals make in these children's lives. Also my horses will get more attention and be really good with the children, the best part is that this place is close to where I live and I go over and visit them (check up on them).
I love animals so when I could not find work I decided to start a pet sitting business, what could be better than doing what I love? I only started it last year and with limited income I haven't had the opportunity to advertise like I would like to, but I have taken advantage of some free ways to advertise, such as leaving business cards and/or fliers at vet offices, groomers and places that cater to animals. I also participate in fund raisiers for nonprofit humane org. which gives me the opportunity to meet people with pets and promote my business. The problem right now is getting my website back up, I am having a company redesign it and there have been problems getting the website released from the DNS it was with, this is really hurting me, I can't advertise it when it is up for people to go to yet. :(
