Monarch of All I Survey

I'm the Queen of my own little castle. Long live the Queen!

Unfortunately, I am also the parlormaid, the chambermaid, the housemaid, the kitchenmaid, the scullery maid, the gardenmaid, the Home Secretary and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Long live the staff!

I get many fine workouts at the end of a hoe, weedeater or vacuum. I also have a workout friend, and we hike along the river for an hour each morning.

I get many fine workouts at the end of a hoe, weedeater or vacuum. I also have a workout friend, and we hike along the river for an hour each morning.

I reached my goal of high school weight in 2010. That was a good primary goal, because I had been only a little chubby in my teens. Then I stalled on the longest plateau in history. I wanted to lose a little more, but it seemed impossible. I tried EVERY plateau-busting suggestion I found! Just recently I began alternate day fasting, which worked well for my son. Finally I broke that pesky plateau!

I am concerned about developing age-related chronic diseases like dementia , and research shows that intermittant fasting helps in these areas...and a little weight-loss is a bonus!

My fitness goal is to to be the kids' "Extreme Grandma" and just keep moving, so there's no question about when they should put me on the other side of the flowerbed.

Thanks for the name of the mystery bird. I thumbed through my book and come to find out, that's what it looked like! It wasn't in the duck section, but near the cranes in it. I have never seen one before this year.

I also had to edit my other bird on my facebook page, you're the second person to tell me I'm wrong on the brownish-yellow bird. I never claimed to know what all the birds are.

Have a great day! emoticon

Thank you for the comment on my first blog. Made me smile. I enjoy your page and have added you as a friend if that's okay. I get most of my workouts in similar fashion... weedeating, blowing sidewalks and driveway, gardening, mucking stalls and general outdoor chores that never seem to end. But very gratifying to lose myself in them, and lose a few pounds in the process!
I love that you and your friend hike along the river. How enjoyable that time must be for you both. Thank you, again!
