WOW!!! That is something we all need to take to heart!

JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.

Member Since: 8/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 75,846

My Goals:
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.

Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.

My Program:
Portion Control - although I haven't been real successful in doing this, I am more aware of what portions are and try to stick with them most of the time.

I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, getting at least 10 minutes of cardio every day. I try to do some strength trainig 3 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...

Jan, 2016 -- All of this still holds true.

Other Information:
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.

2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project. Some are also starting into spinning using drop spindles.

    Sounds like harvest will start for me (cooking for the crew) on Wednesday. The wheat around his Gramma's place near Kremlin was 100% hail loss and damage in a couple other fields so will be a shorter harvest than most-even though he still has to cut it all not the big push.

    I went to GTF to pick up my mom and her friend from the airport. Their cruise ship landed in Seattle yesterday from the AK trip. She said it was pretty good but wouldn't do it again. I'm a weirdo but those big cruise ships have just never appealed to me. I like road trips with no real schedule. So I was teasing them yesterday about getting them home in time for the Demo Derby in Chinook. It's crazy they have their fair one weekend and ours in the next and then the State Fair in GTF the following week? I used to love the pig races where they had the young pigs race around a little track for an oreo cookie. So I guess we'll all LOL about the pig races today. Won't be too hot and we'll only stay about 1 1/2 hours but at least get to see some of the stuff and support the 4H booth.

    I can't believe the food doesn't even appeal to me anymore but know I'll be eating a pronto pup on Thurs or Friday at the Havre fair. Everywhere else in the world calls them corn dogs??? I used to love the Vikings but since the Sons of Norway gave their booth to the Northern Football players they aren't even close and not good at all. And why did I ever think cotton candy tasted good?

    Yeah, I could use that fast food cow or a couple sheep or goats to come and work in my yard. I got the front yard done but it took a long time with several passes and lots of cussing on my part. Now the back needs doing so hopefully can get it done when we get back from Chinook. Should have done it last night but was just tired. We only got a little rain and the wind had evaporated most of that...and it's supposed to heat up this week with no lots of wasps and skeeters???
    emoticon Hope you have a great week! Gotta go put a new battery in my old car that I use for harvest. Want to get it done before it heats up out there!

    Thank you for reporting that jerk on Lynda's blog! I didn't know anyone could do that, I thought it was just the person who wrote the blog. It's a sad state when people join here, just to put ignorant comments on blogs.

    Again, thank you!

    Yeah, the rain just keeps coming! Decluttering is moving along, not as fast as I'd like but making big dents and having to work indoors helps. I need to get some furniture moved but don't want to get caught in the rain this afternoon and have to go to GTF to pick up my mom and her friend at the airport on Saturday. I have a feeling it rained the whole time they were on their AK cruise?!! Then next week it will get hot so probably start harvest? Who knows. Next week will be a busy week for me even if I don't start harvest because it's fair week and I am subbing in the kitchen at the senior center on Mon&Tues.
