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 for the blog love about blocking the scarf and shawl. It is just two stitches-knit and purl.
    I dazzle you with beads!

    Sigh, I know what you mean about family and younger folks. My sister is being relatively careful but has started going out for lunch and shopping. I might shop if a store is nearly empty, but I won’t go in anywhere else if I can avoid it. We have a preliminary paper signing on the condo coming up, and I requested doing it from the safety of our car. Stay well, my friend.

    Hi Linda, Yes, I have seen the Naked and Afraid show before but I don't watch it regularly. My goal now is to be around 161 by my 62nd birthday (August 18th) and 142 or less by Thanksgiving this year. I will weigh-in tomorrow and post on my blog. Cheers and love, (Carole)

    Sorry to hear about spreading in rural areas; much too close to home. We’re continuing to be very cautious. My county is small but full of elderly, and nursing homes haven’t fared well. Cases are still rising, and I expect it to take an upturn in a few weeks since more people have been out.

    I have potatoes cooling for some potato salad. I didn’t plan anything for tomorrow, but I have two veggie burgers and fixings, watermelon, and the potato salad when I get done with it.
