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.

    emoticon That's why I added a chauffeur. I too have had some entertaining experiences with directions. I once ended up in a dark alley, not a good place at all. I just followed the directions. I suppose the dark alley was the shortest route. That's why I always tell my husband to take a printed map. He optimistically expects that technology will work right while I prefer to have a reliable Plan B or C.

    I'll be thinking of you tomorrow and hoping for an uneventful trip. It was hard getting up for work this morning after being off Fri-Mon. I was just worthless yesterday, really needed that rest day. I have only this week and next to get through summer work schedule. It's getting to me, and I'm looking forward to shorter workdays with a whole hour for lunch.

    Tuesday MISSIONS
    emoticon 1. Kitchen tidy. There was so much I couldn't do yesterday because of water and plumbing issues. Of course I hadn't rinsed up or run the dishwasher. Dishes are done, kitchen is clean, did another cupboard.
    emoticon 2. Put away the laundry that started the water issues in the first place. At least it was on the final cycle when things went awry so I was able to bump it to the spin cycle, put it in the dryer, and have clean dry things for today.
    emoticon 3. Surprise mission--short stint on whatever moves me this evening. Mopped the floors.
    emoticon 4. Spend some ME time on something besides reading. Colored.
