Counting down

Monday, September 09, 2013

We are planning to move by the end of the month. We are moving nearly 100 miles away and now that we found a house (still renting) I am nervous.

We spent yesterday putting up post for a gate and posts for a fence for Bella.
I am grateful we found a place that will let us have our Bella right there with us. A lot of work.

We planned on moving closer to my son and to where we will beworking but we couldn't find anything we could afford there or liked so we are about an hour away. BUT that's by ggogle map. I sure we can find a shorter way once we get there, I hope.

The main thing is 8 days til I am done with my present job. All this week(5 days) and 3 days next week.(Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)

I had given my notice a year ago August and I tried this August,too.
The only way I am getting out of there is by moving away.
I can only hope that God is leading us in the right direction.

Fingers are crossed and wish us luck.
Donna

    If God is leading you, it is certainly in the right direction.....
(but sometimes I have a hard time telling the difference between God's leading and my own leading....)

    I sure understand. When we left MA after living there for 21 years and moved to PA I was numb. Took me almost 2 years to feel like "home" again. Will keep you in my prayers.

    Moving is always stressful and raft with the unknown. I've moved long distances, a few times., and found that the door of opportunity is always open. Look for the open doors... emoticon emoticon

August 5th joke

Monday, August 05, 2013

A wife asked her husband:

"What do you like most about me, my pretty face or sexy body?''

He looked at her from head to toe & replied:

"I like your sense of humor."

Still trying

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

I just get so lazy with exercising. It is not that I don't do anything because I do, it's just that I have got to push myself and get motivated and get my butt in gear.
I am up another pound or so. emoticon
I am active, last Friday I helped unload 5 truckloads of hay and put them in a big trailer, plus we are getting our wood started for the winter and Monday we did 2 carts full in this muggy weather our clothes were wet like we took a shower in them) and Guess what, still hanging on to pounds. Oh well, just have to do better. emoticon
On the lighter side:

I stopped at a fast food restaurant recently. I was fascinated by a sign which offered fat free French fries.
I decided to give them a try. I was dismayed when the clerk pulled a basket of fries from the fryer which were dripping with fat.
I said,"These aren't fat free ."
"Yes they are, he said. We only charge you for the potatoes. The fat is free!"

    I know about working in the heat. I cleared brush every morning this week, and by the time I finished each day, I could hardly get my clothes off because of being so drenched! I'm glad I took plenty of water and gatorade!

You are very active, maybe it's water retention? Just keep pushing on, you'll see results soon.

Never fret about what that scale says. There's a lot of different things that come into play with the pounds we lose and the muscles we build. Just keep moving forward. You are working hard so expect changes in your body even if the scale doesn't change. Changes ARE happening! emoticon
That was a great way to make us SMILE with those fat free fries! emoticon

    With the hay and the wood, it sure sounds like exercise to me. emoticon
Of course, you do have to watch your calories too !!

Fat free French fries ??? I wonder how you would do. Definitely, a play on words.

Good luck, you will get back on track. emoticon emoticon

July 2 & a quick joke

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

So far so good. I had a good breakfast, A good lunch and snack, and I feel great.
Now for when I get home I plan exercise first and a light dinner. emoticon
Now for the quick joke.

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the President his daily briefing.

He concludes by saying "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."

OH NO! Exclaims the President. "That's terrible!"

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as he sits, head in hands.

Finally, The President looks up and asks........

"How many is a brazillion?"

July 1st starting again

Monday, July 01, 2013

Well, I gained some of my weight back. I am starting at 110 pounds.
I was down to 104 BUT I didn't exercise like I should or eat right so I gained weight and am so mad at myself for being lazy.
Today I am back to Yoga and some strength training.
I want to get down to 105 by the end of this month.
I can do it. emoticon emoticon
It's in writing now.
Hope we all have a good week and a great July!
Keep smiling. emoticon
