Hot, but hanging in there
Monday, August 01, 2011      1 comments

The weather is HOT with a heat advisory. I'm still hanging in there, trying to stay busy and to keep my mind preoccupied. Ran some errands with the kids today and the youngest went to his first tackle football weigh in. I'm really low f... Read more

It's been one week since my soul mate and once in a lifetime horse galloped into greener pastures. The sky tonight was as unique as the night she died. When she crossed over there was a double rainbow and the most unusual clouds any of u... Read more

I received my mare's ashes yesterday and spent several hours spreading her. I went to four different places that hold wonderful memories for me. I kept part of her ashes so that when I'm cremated, my kids can spread her with me. I'm jus... Read more

I had "my moments" today, but I think it was easier because I ran errands and wasn't at the barn today. I'm just taking it day by day. The eating is getting better so I'll just keep controlling what I can. Thanks for all your suppor... Read more
Trying....

I'm trying to "move on" and "get back into the swing of things" after the loss of my beloved mare, but it's tough. Eating has been ok. Calories are in the range, most of the time. I'm having a hard time finding an appetite, so sometimes I do... Read more

Well we returned from vacation on Saturday in the late afternoon. On Sunday my youngest daughter and I went to the barn to see our horses. It was a good first three hours full of catching up with barn buddies and paying attention to our horses... Read more

Overall, I'm happy with vacation. We had lots of fun with family, ate really good Yooper food, and exercised daily. The last two days I did go over my calories, though. My smallest pair of capri pants are a tad tight so I know it's time to ge... Read more

Well, we are packing to head home tomorrow before the sun rises. I walked eight miles today which is good because I went over my calories. One of the few times over the past few months, so I'm not sweating it! We are heading back to the... Read more

If any of you have been to the Keweenaw County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, you will know how great the "home fare" is in the way of food. Pasties are awesome in taste, but not so great for those of us on a health journey. Mackinac Isla... Read more

Today I wore a sun dress my 16 year old daughter bought for me. It has spaghetti straps, is lower cut in both the front and the back and comes to just above the knee. When I walked into the living room, she said I looked pretty. (The hubby li... Read more

I'm ready for today! However, I am sore!!! My shins hurt from walking "the hill" here in the Keweenaw, my back and arms hurt from kayaking, and even my glutes hurt from all of the other hiking we did. BUT, I'm so ready for today. We pla... Read more

This morning I walked six miles! This was just for "exercise" and doesn't include our normal walking around Keweenaw County...which is a lot! We are getting ready to go on photo scavenger hunt for some really unique pictures. I've read ... Read more

We are in the beautiful U.P. of Michigan. Not a good day for soccer. My daughter's team ended up losing in the semi-finals 0-2, but it was an interesting game. Then, the USA lost the World Cup. I'm ready for a break from "the real worl... Read more

Good news! My daughter's team has played all three of her games. They won two and tied the last one. The last one was tough playing. They had to play in standing water where the ball would literally stop. It was pretty funny at times, though... Read more
