I'm 77. another years has gone by, 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 a Cpap 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 retired farmers wife. We do have some livestock, 2 miniatures horses, and 8 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 the fast turn around for part 1 of 3 for Dearly Beloved. He is much better today; just feeling really worn out. I got a lot of knitting done yesterday. After they took him and I had a little nosh (had not eaten since 6:30am) I turned on Pandora on my phone (real low - I and zero interest in TV) and sat there and knitted. At one point I even got up and walked around the room knitting (my project bag has a wrist strap), listening to Enya and trying not to worry since she said it was a 15 minute procedure and it was now over an hour. But it all turned out well.

    You should be able to find barley in the same section as the dried beans and rice. Good luck!!!
