Hi, Thanks for visiting my page. I live near Calgary, Alberta Canada on a small ranch where we have cattle, a feral cat and several thoroughbred horses that are on a race track all summer. The cat has it best though, all she needs to do is keep the mouse population down and if she feels lazy she doesn't even have to do that cause she has a self feeder and waterer!!! .
Gardening, playing computer games and oh yes reading are some of my favorite things to do. Love the outdoors and my house sure looks like it in summer!!! Life is grand.

I am horribly addicted to sugar. Once I start eating that demon food I just can't seem to quit so my weight yo yos like crazy. If only I would stay away from them I know my weight would remain more constant, I would feel better, have more energy and beat the depression that sets in when I go on one of my many binges. Does anyone see a pattern here? Sugar, depression, emotional eating, sugar . . . . . and round and round it goes.

June, 2020. We remain ever vigilant due to Covid 19. I am in a depressed state of mind, probably because of the isolation plus DH's health continues on the decline because of Diabetes and all it's side effects, including kidney disease which is being closely monitored as his function is now down to 10% (which is up from last month's 8%) My weight has gone up since the Spring Challenge but I'm back for the Summer Challenge after having done the In between Challenge - well sort of!!

    Keep your focus on achieving positive results rather than worrying about lack or
    loss. It's up to you to make those choices that'll lead you to your desired outcome.♥

    Hope you have a great weekend. Today is weigh-in Saturday and be sure to do it before 11:59pm today. Thanks if you have already done yours. Looking forward to next week. Personally, I’ve had some set backs and plan to restart my Spark program and get back to my healthy living schedule. Sending best wishes your way as you work toward your goals.

    Cultivate an optimistic mind, use your imagination, always consider alternatives,
    and dare to believe that you can make possible what others think is impossible.
