Hubby got bucked off his horse and x-rays yesterday confirmed broken ribs :(

Saturday, August 20, 2011

Hi..things never slow down here..spent yesterday chasing down x-rays..doctor wants hubby to take 6 weeks off but that is impossible but the slow down will mean a lot more for me to do..I'm off to quad the community pasture herd on the west side...will try to keep at my goals but blogs will be short and sweet.

Take care and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    Donna, I pray for a speedy recovery for the Hubby. Know that I am praying for you and for him. Don't over do so that you are not able to do also. Will wait anxiously to hear again about how you are doing
God's blessings upon you and yours

    So very sorry that happened to your sweet hubby. I know this will be hard on both of you cause I'm sure he's not one to just sit and watch while you do all the work.
I know you have such wonderful neighbbors and friends and I'm sure they will all pitch in and help you.
Please take care and don't overdo it.

Wish I could come and help with the chores, I could use the exercise for sure!

    I hope your husband heals quickly. This is an especially bad time of the year for a rancher to be laid up. I'm sure glad that it wasn't more serious (not that broken ribs aren't serious).

I know that you can do it, and just think of all that extra cardio!!

  Was it a young horse? Or just a spooked horse... or maybe a contrite horse. Hope all gets well soon! I have had my fair share of horse related injuries working with race horses in Kentucky. My sympathies!

    I'm sorry to hear about hubby. I know only too well what broken ribs can be like - I had 4 fractured ones (along with clavicle) in a car accident. Generally they heal fairly quickly but his body will tell him to take it easy when need be. Sorry that it will mean more for you to do, BUT there can be some trade-offs. He can pick up on some of the lighter housework - NO EXCUSES:-)

So much for my mini goal to blog daily again..already missed yesterday!!

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Hi I'm a day late with this blog..so much for mini goals..the rest are going better :)

I was in the field most of yesterday summerfallowing ...we stopped for a quick lunch in town..the Co-op was having customer appreciation so free lunch and hubby needed stuff,too. Then back to the field when we got home and I worked late so had a late supper..I had a large spinach salad with lots of veggies and a fresh peach for dessert :)

My neighbor had phoned so I returned her call, we hadn't talked for a couple of weeks with her being away and I having the granddaughters here. Sad news is her adult daughter's cancer has come back and she needs treatments again.

By then I was cvompletely out of steam so headed off to bed..the rest of my goals are coming nicely..have inched a bit closer to my tracker..hope to be back at it by Sept 1

Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'..I'm back to the field again today...

Love Donna emoticon

    Glad you are putting rest first. Blogging is nice but since you are such a busy person getting enough rest is more important.

Today's blog and some mid-August goals :)

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Hi..just a quick blog and some quick goals!!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented on my blog yesterday :) Yeah I'm very proud of my sweet granddaughters :)

Today I mostly stayed on track with food, did lots of exercise including running up and down stairs just for the fun of it 10 x and walking out in the pasture to bottle feed my little calf (hubby's idea not mine!!) He finally turned them out of the corral.

Yesterday I rode horse for the first time this summer..it felt good to be back in the saddle again :)

I worked out a plan in a 3 subject note book of things to work on and of course my health and spark were one section..so here's some back on track, mini goals for the last half of August

Get back to drinking at least 8 glasses of water!!
Get back to tracking all my food (just in a note book for now..back on Spark in Sept!!)
Get back to doing lots of fitness minutes..and tracking
Get back to blogging daily..this is day 2 :)
Get back to what sparked me to lose 25 pounds last year and continue from there!!
Get back to racking up the Spark points..try to get to next level by Sept 1 :)

There that should get me back on track...let's see if I can Spark some weight loss and get back on track for Sept!! I'm also going to go surfing..to some blogs to find some more inspiration..wish me luck!!

Today I also met with my slo-pitch team women for a send off to one of our team who is off to Edmonton for special radiation treatment..she has to stay in a closed room for 5 days with no out side contact and have meals send through a slot in the door..then driving home her husband can't be in the car with her for very many hours so they will have to stop lots..then she'll be off work for quite awhile..keep her in your prayers through this ordeal!!

Well I better go for now , thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'
