I'm 75. another years has gone by, so now I am 75,and I have decided that I am not going to focus on losing weight as much as I am going to improve my eating habits. I have asthma and am on oxygen at night and can't walk long distances, I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder and now have a frozen shoulder, so that shoulders makes it difficult to do a lot of kind of exercises, so I do what I can, and if I lose a couple pounds that is a bonus, not a requirement.

I am a farmers wife and engaged in as much of the farm as I can, and understand. We do have some livestock, sheep, 8 miniatures horses, and goats and right now we share the chores, me in the morning and hubby in the evening, but once field works start the chores are all my baby, and I do enjoy them.

I really don't have any big expectations, cause I am not one that likes setting goals. I just want to be as healthy as I can and enjoy life, and it doesn't mean spending hours and hours walking, running, working out in a smelly germ infested gym, I work hard on the farm and that has been the way it has been for many centuries, in my family, so I think it is good enough for me.
Honest work, and knowing I should not eat as much as I do, but it is all natural food, that means I don't eat boxed or store canned food unless it is unavoidable. If you read labels, some dogs and cats eat better than some do. If I can't pronounce it, I don't eat it.
So that said I have no goals, just honest living, and no beating myself up if I have a piece of pie.

    Thanks, 2020 has to be better than all the stuff going on in 2019. Right now I'm just trying to keep my head above water. We have a really good trust officer; I'd be going crazy without her keeping track of what to do next. We have some repairs to make to the condo, but plan to rent it out until husband is ready to make a move. We do like the house we're in, and knowing him, he just hates the thought of having to clean out his garage and stuff, so I'm expecting some procrastination on finally moving into that condo ourselves.

    1. Call to clear up prescription miscommunication.
    2. Assorted estate stuff; not worth listing, I'll just keep plugging away and get done as much as I can before the weekend. 1 PM: have taken care of as much as I've had time for so far, used lunch to run errands.
    3. Health MISSION: one healthy PM snack, no more than that.

    emoticon emoticon LOL on the kittens. My current lot are the worst I've had in regard to plants. Well, except for Sebastian who ate a small potted dieffenbachia (had to look up that good German spelling) down to the dirt. Those things are supposed to be poisonous. It probably made his mouth tingle, but it didn't even upset his stomach.

    MISSIONS mostly after the fact, but hey, I did them
    1. CVS at lunch hour
    2. Email estate trustee
    3. Call financial adviser
    4. Call sister
    5. Call Safety Harbor Spa to make reservations for a deluxe brunch/dinner buffet on Thanksgiving. Normally, I'd be preparing a quiet meal for us, Mom, and her boyfriend. This is our the first holiday without her, and even though we were invited to a big family gathering at my nephew's, we decided to do something very different by ourselves.
    emoticon First five are done.
    6. MUST DO after work: Cook tonight. Farm share needs using, and I keep putting it off. A big pot of soup will do just fine.
    7. Health MISSION: NO MORE CHOCOLATE; the one piece I had is it. Tomorrow I will have a low carbs day. I really have to get my act together.
    emoticon Last two done.
