Mowed my hiking trail today...
... with my pushmower haha. I think it took me about 90 minutes. My rider mows a fairly wide path in just one pass in no time.
But the pushmower is set lower, so I had to move lots of rocks and limbs. So lots of squats and lifting semi-h... Read more
Fine Tuning & Stay the Course
The scale moved favorably. So I am happy about that. But I can see from my weight loss chart, I have some fine tuning to do.

Ordered some Books yesterday
Normally probably not blog-worthy. But when you consider the fact that I do not read, it is definitely worth noting. I can read of course, but I just hate to read books. I can read horse magazines, business journals, etc but to pick up a book... Read more

Feeling more Fat today...
I know I am still fat, but I don't really feel fat most days. I don't know if anyone else knows what I mean or feels that way. When I was thin, I felt fat. Now that I am fat, well yes at my highest I felt fat, but now 42 pounds lighter, I don... Read more
My Wii scale thinks it's a Comic...
with a very cruel & wicked sense of humor. Last Sunday, it said I gained .2 pounds. Gained .2 lbs. Ok so I know enough not to trip on it, but I did anyways, for about an hour or two. A so very Not Very Nice April Fool's Joke if you ask me.
