I'm 73. another years has gone by, so now I am 74,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.

    I have just been real busy, shearing gets harder every year, fencing with 13 pastures all with 5 strands of wire, gardens. I took time to get gardens taken care of early this year, so the rose garden was first lol!. The herb garden second and then flowers, raised beds and the big garden. Now back to fencing and weed whacking under all the fence lines, that is a long chore too, takes the electricity down too much if I don;t do it, when I started the fence was at 3K now it is up to 10K, still have a bad side to two pastures, with trees and bushes in the way plus at least 6 more sides to finish as soon as possible.

    You're right, Linda. It seems a mom's job is never done - but then I guess I like it that way!

    Sunday MISSIONS were straightforward:
    1. Off to Tampa to sing two services, last one for the summer.
    2. Load up at Trader Joe’s since I don’t expect to be near one for awhile.
    3. Take dinner to friend in rehab
    4. Come home and do last load of laundry.
    Laundry is in the washer, the rest is done.
