more tin on the quonset :)

Saturday, September 11, 2010

even tho it was really windy today we put more tin on the quonset. We have one side completely finished and the other side started..We got our neighbor to come help us with the start of the second side, it helps to have lots of hand to start it even :) speaking of hands mine are all cut up tonight and I have a blister fron the tin snips..I did alot of the cutting today.

The pineapple has worked great, hope tomorrow's weigh-in is okay :) too!

Today hubby even got back to cutting hay late this afternoon, hope the rain stays away.

I'm still finding lots of neat teams :) last night found one with crock pot recipes...they sound really good to try.

well I'm really pooped from working on the tin..should go and rest up for tomorrow

Have a great rest of your weekend

    Yow, Donna, what a worker! Tin is so hard on the hands, and it's hard to work with gloves on. Glad you got some more done.

Love your comments -- I say forget the 4 pounds that sneaked in unwelcomed! You're aiming for 10 lost in September, based on where you started 9/1, right? I know you'll make it! emoticon

doing a pineapple cleanse

Friday, September 10, 2010

I'm hoping to jump start some weight loss with a pineapple cleanse. Just something I do to detox every once in awhile.

It kind of messes up keeping within my calories goal..oh well.

It's raining here again so not much got done, I did quad 3 herds of cattle while hubby and his rider checked the community pasture. Then this afternoon we went to town for mail and errands.

I have to dye my hair so I picked up 3 boxes of dye..I'm doing one basic color and then 2 different color streaks (like Oprah on the new magazine cover) wish me luck..if it doesn't turn out I can always re-dye it :)

    I assume the pineapple has to be fresh pineapple? Have you done it before?

Good luck with your hair!! I've done my own before as well--usually pretty happy with it.

Our forecast is for some sunshine, finally, for the next few days. Not overly warm (12ish) but at least not raining!!

    The pineapple cleanse is just to eat only pineapple all day with water to drink ( I actually had a normal breakfast and then just pineapple for dinner and supper ) it's more of a detox I guess I probably read it in a magazine..the magazine junkie that I am :)

eye exam

Thursday, September 09, 2010

Hi I started this blog earlier but leaned over my lap top and erased it by mistake so now I'm starting over. Finally went for an eye exam and my eyes have changed a bit so I picked out new glasses..boy are they ever expensive!!!

I forgot my pedometer so I didn't track steps in the city but we did lots of walking. Got some groceries and did a lot of errands.

It's been raining all day here so no work was missed by going away. If it dries up we may tin the quonset after cowboy hubby gets home from riding in the pasture. Or else we may go to our local small town for mail, etc.

Can't wait to get my new'll be a couple of weeks till they're at the end of September I'll try to post a new pic of me..10 pounds lighter with new glasses..wish me luck :)

More on how September goals are going (I've become goal obsessed)

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

September goals

1 blog daily..check

2 8 glasses of water daily..check

3 track food/within limits daily..check

4 revised 50 daily spark points..check ( got mostly 70+)

5 100 daily fitness minutes..check

6 make 10 new friends on spark..check

7 eat more fruits & veggies...most days (an apple a day..check)

8 drink tea daily..only 4 days

9 vitamins daily..check

10 lose 10 pounds by end of month..we'll see :)

Today we had an okay PFRA round up, a little cold though. Plus when I opned the gate and tried to direct the herd kitty-corner some bunched and a few calves broke a wire and got into a neighbor's land..more work..round them up ..fix the fence :(

Then we worked on the tin on the quonset..even tho it's really windy today not a good combination ..tin, ladders and wind..all went ok, no casualties anyway but cowboy hubby is grumpy. Maybe if it dried up enough to get back to haying it would help..don't care much for the grumpy husband but I'm sure I'm not alone.

Well all in all I am very happy with my progress. Hope your hump day is going great. I'm having such a good time meeting friends, learning stuff etc emoticon

First week in I'm doing on my goals :)

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Well things are going great..I'm following almost all my September goals..the scale has even budged abit :) The hardest thing out of all the goals is to drink tea..I know it's healthy and all but I love my coffee and water..I sure haven't had tea daily..I just have to make myself make it!...I just went and made a cup of tea:)

I really am disorganized..yesterday \I cleaned my kitchen, today I made 2 big batches of tomato sauce to freeze..and then cleaned the kitchen again haha. I also finished the last of the apples I picked so they're all sliced and frozen now, too.

After that I helped hubby put more tin on the's getting to the high parts and I don't like heights much so I'm on the ground cutting tin and handing it up to him. We worked until dark.

Tomorrow is a PFRA round up, they guys will use horses but I'm fine on the quad..just getting too old for horses I think.

I talked to my middle daughter on the phone tonight..tomorrow is her birthday and I wanted to see what she works, she's an LPN in Alberta. She has a half shift so she'll be around after 9 tomorrow :)

Well I should go for now and drink my tea. Take care everyone emoticon
