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 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 fall till the new year...to lose 30 pounds, and walk increasingly farther. At this point i'm up to 10 thousand steps a day..spproximately 5 miles.
I won't give up!!!
I'm on the fall 5% team...i will be doing beach body 21 day fix daily, swimming till i have to close the pool, and walking.
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!

Hi Holly - thanks for the suggestion about g-free baking: the flour I used is Dove's Farm plain white (rice, potato, tapioca, maize, buckwheat). I have got some Xanthum gum, but thought it was only needed for dough (ie bread, pizza etc). I don't have to exclude gluten, I just choose to avoid wheat when there's an alternative.
