Time to update!!!!
A bit about me: I have several jobs, as the market where I live is very slow, like many are!! I first and foremost am a Mom...my favorite job!! I have 3 grown kids..but they will always be my kids no matter how old they are!
I own a small custom bakery, which is across the street from my home. I specialize in wedding and celebration cakes and you can often see a picture of one posted on my blog!
Then comes the horse show announcing..I do this mostly for fun..I grew up with horses, my daughter showed for years and we had quarter horses, and I have one of those voices, so there you have it!!!
I had a knee replacement last march with major complications, and its been a long haul coming back. It will never be fully ok, but we do with what we are dealt, right?
I have several goals for this year..to lose 25 pounds, walk without limping, and walk increasingly farther. At this point i'm up to 10 thousand steps a day..spproximately 5 miles.
I won't give up!!!
exercise: shooting for 120 mins a day. EVERY DAY.
Add weights 4 days a week along with the cardio and toning. At this point i was only doing them 3 days a week.
Work on making food LOW priority instead of thinking about it constantly.
Thanks to my great significant other, I have a Bodybugg! What a great tool to help me reach my goals.
I'm finding out i can NOT eat the amount of points WW allots to me OR the amount of cals Sparkpeople says i can and still lose weight. So i'm tweaking, trying to find the optimum.
ok here goes:
I am first and foremost a Mom. My 3 grown kids are so important to me!
I have a great significant other, Kevin, 3 cats, my Newfoundland, Lucy--light of my life besides my kids!! and a chihuahua.
I have several jobs: I own and operate a bakery, I'm a substitute teacher grades k-12 any class, and i'm a horse show announcer. I am involved with my alma mater on the alumni board of directors.
I love all things Harry Potter, am a proud DHOH for Hufflepuff House on our team here.
I love to read...currently on the last book of the Twilight series. Love movies, Classic Rock and some Country for music.
I love to swim and hike, love the snow, hate hot weather unless i'm near water i can BE IN.
ok i'm done!

Thanks for the blog comment. I now the feeling. After my free day, when I aim usually up 3-6 lbs I got on the scale and it said I was down about 14 lbs from the previous day. I had the most brief moment of elation before reality set in and I realized that my scale was off it's rocker!

Thanks for the blog comment. If I leave the house, my phone is in my pocket! I have been lucky, I haven't actually fallen in public yet, but I've gotten close on several occasions. I've been lucky that there's always been something close by that I can grab that allows me to take some of the weight off of my legs. Then it's just a matter if getting myself back upright and slowly making my way to my truck and getting myself home!
