I'm 77. another years has gone by, 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 a Cpap 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 retired farmers wife. We do have some livestock, 2 miniatures horses, and 8 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.

    Hope everything went well for Jason. Thinking of him and you today. It’s so gloomy at 3:30, I think I’ll turn the Christmas lights on. Making some pork and veggies stir fry for dinner. The cats’ bedding is in the dryer so Little Miss will have a warm blankie and cushion soon. She’s sulking about her basket not being right. emoticon

    Thanks for the blog love about winning the thread race! Because I held the end of the thread I was able to get 3/4 of the way around a child's size mask. I wanted to use it to the very end. This also does not show all the times I ran out of bobbin thread 6" before the end of the seam!!! emoticon

    Thank goodness the tooth had a root canal already or I’d be in real pain. I have two consultations with two oral surgeons the second week of December. Nowadays to get in to a dr or dentist, you have to grab any appointment available if you’re lucky.
