My goal for August is to lose the weight I have gained this summer and to get house straightened back up. But for the next seven days make positive changes each day. I will up date this blog every day for the next seven days, the good LORD willing.
I have to say I haven't made much progress but I did measure my skim milk and drink it.
Sunday went to church and ate plenty of fruits and vegetables plus 1 cup of skim milk
Monday got house swept and vacuum
Took Blaze to town we shopped and took cupcakes to nursing home and passed them around. I made good food choices for first half of day and then blew it on second half of day. Blaze starts first grade tomorrow.
Went to weight watchers today, took daughters to laundry mat to wash car load of clothes, ate Chinese food, took pop and ice cream to some ladies at nursing home and went for a 1 1/2 mile walk with grandson tonight and my great niece Lilly. We went looking for a Sassafras tree I new where there was one at 30 years ago and we went looking. After wadding off in a field of knee high weeds we didn't find it and I quickly decides that I didn't want to find one that bad. Lilly brought her pet goat too.
Friday I took my 8 month old granddaughter to nursing home. Most of the people wanted to hold her and give her a hug and I let them. You can't have to much of love. We ate lunch with two of the ladies there, my Aunt Faye and a Sister Vickie Powers.
Saturday I met with several ladies from church and weeded the flower bed, did we get all the weeds no, but it looks 100% better than it did.
Blaze and I have been watching survival video's on youtube on how to make a basket to catch fish. We tried to make one from the grape vines we pulled out of the flower bed today. He wanted me to make it while he climbed a tree. Between getting ticks all over us and him being no help I quickly gave up on that project. I have been watching videos on edible and medicinal plants. Momma tired to teach me about them but at the time I wasn't interested and also I needed glasses bad and didn't know it.
I am not doing as good as I would like but I am trying.
