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.

    Thanks for the umbrella! We got the sunshine today! Yay! It was a pretty day. If the ground was dry I would have planted a few flowers. I think we may have some more rain coming this weekend, but we just take what we get.
    Hope you guys had a good day!

    Our numbers went up quickly when two of our meat packing plants came down with it. So they had to close for a deep cleaning and put in new guidelines for how people could work. I'm so tired of thinking about it. I don't mind being at home but even a short grocery shopping trip is a hassle! Have a good night.

    How nice of you to check in with me. Things have been a little tense around here. First, the horror of what is going on in Minneapolis. Then yesterday I find that the same protesting, looting, and starting fires was happening just a few blocks from where my daughter lives. She was so scared with people driving by and shouting. And there's been some drama with Lauriellen and her baby's father. So I guess I've been a bit distracted. It's a beautiful afternoon and I can't seem to make myself go outside to get some yard work done!

    My old house is on well and septic, but I moved back to the city where I grew up and they have been on the Chicago city water since I was a kid.
