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.

    You know how long I've been wanting to tackle those papers. What was it, spring break? I spent that at appointments every day for either myself or my mom. And there's really no such thing as going paperless. You can cut down on some papers, but other things, you do need hard copy just in case. My goal is to have our papers as well organized as my mom did, even husband's messy piles. My sister and I were very impressed yesterday with what my mom's boyfriend had done with his family history. I need to get ours in better order. As the oldest grandchild--and for that matter, the oldest family member, yikes--I have history and pictures that the younger ones don't know. Fortunately my nephew has gotten very interested, so I can eventually turn it all over to him. Senior family member, now that's a shock.

    Thanks for the blog love on my sparkly white spin! Unsure of what I will make or just make a skein of it and put a price on it to see if it sells. Sometimes as I spin I have an idea for what to do with the final yarn but a lot of times it depends on how many yards I get. Awful to plan for a shawl that needs 450 yards but the spinning only results in 380!

    Oh Linda thank you fr commenting on my blog. Yes I do know what you mean about parents giving their kids all the bad foods. i worked in pharmacy for 27 years. They would come in at 9 in the morning & buy them candy ,chips & soda.
    How I wanted to tell them what I thought!1 No wonder there is so much obesity ,then I would see those kids later in life as young adults with health issues we seen it all the time.
    have a lovely weekend !!
