Hi..We just got home from the first day of the next 100th Birthday celebration for a town near us ...tonight was the registration and coffee and donuts and then the beer gardens and DJ music..the DJ is a friends daughter from the slo-pitch team, and we sat with our team most of the time :)
It's a beautiful night and when we got home we have northern lights in the sky tonight :) I love them, so it's a treat to see them. I do love to connect with nature.
This morning I quadded all the home herds and all was fine, then when hubby came home from the pasture we put together my new lawn mower and it takes about 5 minutes to fill the bag and I carried and dumped them to the critters.. I only did about 7 bags and then it was off to help hubby move stuff around and then I worked some summerfallow and then we had late supper and then we went to town....
My recap of June is...I need to make better food choices so I can get back to my tracker..I'm not too far out of whack but I don't want to raise it!! I know \i can get back to that weight and loose even more and meet my goal...just have to recommit to tracking food and exercise and work at streaks again....
We all know what to do..EAT LESS/MOVE MORE..how come it's so hard sometimes to make the right choices??
My theme for June was family...It has been a real struggle with my depressed daughter. I've visited my son and attended my cousin's son's wedding. I've had many phone calls from both daughters...I sawoldest daughter and son the first week in June for branding, plus son was here one other weekend. Both my sisters were here for the 100th party last weekend as well as all those cousins :)
June has really been the month for families :)
I've made lots of healthy choices with foods and exercise as all the fresh fruits and veggies have been on the menu and June always means yard work, gardening, cattle work and field work..ya..I've been active..also included lots of rain clean ups that weren't planned.
I refreshed my page to watermelon colors and used a watermelon emoticon on my blogs...
I did fun things for me..like found new books and websites to get inspiration from, we played 5 slo-pitch games already this summer.
July's theme will be summer..freedom...vacation (or in my case..staycation)
I want to get streaking..no, not that kind...but logging on everyday..tracking... points..all the stuff that helped me loose the first half of the weight!!
Dare I say..get back on track for the umpteenth time...remember..one choice away from changing my life...I'm ready to jump back in with both feet and get paddling like crazy..oh yeah and swim in the dug out to cool off :)
Live in flip-flops, kick back..drink iced tea and enjoy summer..hope you do too!!
Thanks for stopping by for a chat..Keep on Sparkin'
Have a very Happy Canada Day tomorrow
