Still at it...

Sunday, June 03, 2012

Though I've been busy, I'm still keeping at it. I'm not nearly losing as much weight as I'd like to - but - I am still losing weight. :) That's what matters!

It's my favorite time of the year. I'm outside more often, in the garden, on the scooter (not yet.. though I've ordered the part to fix it!!!) and I just love it.

My garden was all mapped out, 12x4. I had my cotton twine mapping out my squares, and I moved all my indoor plants outside and once I planted them removed the twine. It looks great. Lots of fresh veggies for the summer. I've got: tomatoes (Beefsteak, grape and roma), hot peppers, red peppers, eggplant, cabbage, broccoli, leaf lettuce, carrots, onions, beans, zucchini, cucumbers, watermelon and sweet corn. Very exciting!! Can't wait until everything gets adjusted and starts growing growing growing.

I even threw in a few marigold to keep the pests away. I was thinking about putting in a soaker hose, but I'm not sure. We shall see.....

Also, starting tomorrow I am going to switch up my gym time. I was usually going in the evenings, but I would REALLY love to go in the mornings. The only thing about that is I have to be at work at 7:45. I'm not THAT much of a morning person, but I just feel like I have more energy when I wake myself up early and hit the gym in the AM instead of the PM. So... we're going to give that a solid try all week. That means waking up at 5:40.

Hope everyone else is doing well.. sticking to it! :)

    Emma - Haha, yes.. if I had rabbits I'd probably be a little more hesitant! Luckily, there are no critters about to chomp on my veggies. There is one chipmunk we have that runs around, but he doesn't go near it. Either way, I put some marigolds in the garden this year to keep them all away.. I read they hate the stuff! And thank you for your encouraging words.. I am happy to be losing, even if it is slooowly.

Joyann - YES!! START A VEGGIE GARDEN if you can! I absolutely love it.. and it's pretty easy. If you're uncomfortable planting from seeds, you can always buy seedlings from a grocery store, or a store like Lowes or Home Depot and try it out. It's a lot of fun and great to see the end result!

    You're doing awesome. :) :) I wish I could garden - I have a decidedly brown thumb, and a warren of 20 rabbits on my property. I don't especially want to get rid of the rabbits, but neither do I want to become their personal grocery store! hahaha

Keep up the good work - and remember that no matter how slow you're losing, you're still lapping everyone still sitting on the couch!
