New home & new routines. Happy in paradise!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Hello to all my sparkpeople friends! I guess I've been a bit AWOL on Sparkpeople. About one month ago we packed up and moved to the Rocky Mountains and anyone who's ever moved across states knows what a crazy time that can be!

I've purposefully not been tracking my nutrition. We had to throw out the old scale when we moved and we ordered a new digital one which I weigh in on every morning. I'm happy with my weight now, and feel I've settled into a life routine which maintains my good health while still allowing me to enjoy some extra tasty pleasures daily. Moderation is the key.

I take a morning walk everyday making a long loop around the town center, and eventually to fetch the mail at the post office. Walking in snow is hard work! Shoveling snow, taking snowshoe hikes up into the National parks about once a week as well.

It's perfect here and I've never been happier! I'm going to do some volunteer work for the Conservancy, and also we've been dog/horse sitting on occasion for some new friends on a 750 acre ranch!

You won't hear much from me, because I'm just so busy enjoying life! Before I would get on sparkpeople to pass the time while I was at my desk job, but since I've retired I'm too busy for passing time. If I'm not drawing, I'm playing my guitar, or if the weather is nice we are out working (siding and trim) on our new garage, or snowshoeing!

    I am happy to hear you are well and enjoying life! It is good to hear from you! I reached my goal weight a couple months ago and am working on maintaining. It is still work to make extra sure I don't gain the weight back. I am eating Paleo/Primal and loving it! Life is good!
