I have been canning to my hearts content this weekend I bought a case ( 30 Pounds) of canning cucumber and after 8 hours I am just finishing up. ( pick will be posted soon)

As most of you might not know I love to do crafts and I have found one perfect for this season. Making beanies out of sweaters. My mother in law gave me a bag of sweaters and the ones that are not my style i will make into beanies. I have already made some and my kids loved them,

As for my fitness journey. I have fallen off the fitness wagon. and then been run over a few times. Well I am back on my feet and I have on my job list for today to make a fitness calendar. I love the one that spark has so maybe I will just print it-- depends how much ink is left in my printer. emoticon

Not obese

Saturday, October 23, 2010

So I just got out of the obese range............bye bye ..... I am not going back.

so last night I had to tell my husband that I was so big that i could not fit in my own pants so I had taken some of his to wear. I was totally ashamed and I never want to have another moment like that in my life.

I have also been avoiding my friends because I have such low self esteem that I just can not be involved in the social side of life. I am so glad that I am working to get myself back to MYSELF.

Yesterday ( not really the weekend) I had the best day with my kids. Early in the day I took my kids to a paved path near our house I have been wanting to walk it for quite some time the section that we walked ended up being 1.5 miles. then I took them to the park were they played and I walked for till they were ready to go home.

We also got to go to a local pumpkin patch and go on a hay ride then pick the pumpkins and then ride home it was just so much fun to see what kind they chose and why because they could see a pumpkin face already on these pumpkins.

then I went to my friends house to pick up some things she has been saving for me arts and craft stuff for my kids and my day care kids. my kids and I went thought these two huge boxes and were laughing and just having so much fun deciding what we could do with all this STUFF.

I also went to the DI ( utah thrift store) my son picked out 2 halloween costumes and my daughter of only 11 picked out these high heal boots with fur at the top. Oh she is growing up so fast.

to finish off the day we watched the new karate kid movie.

I Love my life and I love my family they are such a great blessing to me.
