Hi..what a great surprise to jump on the scale for the challenge weigh in and be 199...WooHoo!! Last year I was down 25 pounds and my lowest weight was 195..I'm now approaching that number..it's also my goal for the 5% challenge..so here's hoping I'll be back to that by mid may....well on my way to be slimmer for our Anniversary trip to Las Vegas in mid June!!
This time I'm determined not to keep gaining and losing but get healthy and stay healthy!!
Helped with some morning chores and quadding the main herd after my healthy breakfast of toast and egg :) While out quadding I found more wildflowers blooming..more crocus and some bright yellow buttercups :)
After a quick lunch we went to a neighbor's farm auction sale..hubby didn't really plan to buy anything but ended up buying a 28' seed drill for seeding tame hay and other crops..great bargain for $250...now to get it home??? After the sale we went to town for mail and stop at the drugstore for a treat..hubby.. chocolate bar..me..magazine...they were having a side walk sale type of day and had free snacks and chai tea..so I had a tea and a quick visit with all these women I used to work with..good times..the whole day was full of visiting with friends..then when we got home we had 2 calls to return..so I also visited with my closest neighbor (88 year old mentor) she was wondering if the power had been out here too..it had been..all those blinking clocks....then son had phoned to visit so I called him back..he sounded really happy and said he has a new girlfriend :)
After supper (of grilled steak, peas, spinach salad and a baked potato for hubby) I phoned my sister for a visit, too...boy was I catching up with lots of visiting... then a few minutes ago one of my daughters called too!! She was really happy too, finally got her x boyfriend to move out..had friends over today and painted in her house..her girls were away at their Dad's..even when she told me she's been talked into coaching her 7 year old's soccer team..40 kids, no helpers and has no clue about how to play soccer!! So funny...she doesn't even know how many players on the field...could be interesting..haha!!
Well, I got lots of exercise in ..between all the cattle chores and walking at the auction sale (we also had to park in the ditch of the highway and walk in) then I walked the herd in..or walked out to put them in and hubby had already done it :)
So here I am relaxing on the couch...hockey games on, hubby asleep on the couch, finishing my light beer..catching up on Spark and other internet... this had been a daily habit (well not always the beer) I have over an hour until the midnight check...and the hockey game is in overtime...
Thanks for dropping by and for your comments on my page and blogs..Keep on Sparkin'
Let your JOY rise to the surface....
