Missed the accountability & support but mostly the friendship.

Here's a quick update on me for those that are interested....

Still in Maintenance mode but would like to lose about 5 pounds.

I have been having trouble with my knees and it's put a damper on enjoying my physical activity and over all comfort even when sitting, sleeping and getting up out of a chair! But... I grimace and keep going.

My food choices haven't changed much (thats a good thing) and I'm happy for that. Smoothie for breakfast M-F and lots of veggies and proteins and healthy fats throughout the day. I could forgot the sweets but that's always been a battle so I maintain the "all things in moderation" so I don't over do it. And I'm good with drinking lots of water.

The weather is cooling off and I work in a nice neighborhood so will begin lunch time walks soon. Also renewed my membership at Planet Fitness and go there most days before work. Tennis as usual on Tuesdays and Thursdays will all help me with my fitness. Not to mention all the work I do in the yard...

Still gardening, in fact, I've been building, filling and planting a new garden. I'll share more soon.

Still traveling, most recently we went to Beatrice, Nebraska to see the Total Solar Eclipse in person. More photos to share that coming, too.

I have a new job working for the management company/owners of 27 Johnny Carinos locations. Accounts Payable Specialist at the Restaurant Support Center. Loving it for many reasons.

Have more chickens. Babies (8 of them) at the moment but they grow fast. They join 16 others so I have 24 now. One is a rooster but is more timid than most of the others! lol Nellie has gone to a better place leaving Bosco to protect us by himself but we will soon get a new dog so he has a friend.

Looking forward to meeting new Ninjas and rekindling friendships! Lets have a great fall 2017!

My Goals:
To continue improving me!

Keep up on my variety of fitness and non fitness activities.

Making Healthy Food Choices more often.

Build muscle and release my excess fat stores!

My Program:
Build strength by going to Planet Fitness most work days before I go to work. Focus on a different group of muscles each day. Stay physically active playing tennis a couple times a week and hiking when I can. When its not too hot or too wet I walk at lunch on most work days. I spend a lot of time in the yard. I count strenuous yard work as fitness minutes! I can easily burn a weeks worth of intentional calories out on the weekend!

I will make healthy choices in my food (a majority of the time) & I will log my food and fitness from time to time to get back on track if the weight creeps up!

Just be happy and enjoy all the things I can accomplish.

Personal Information:
I'm the mom to a sweet dog who drive me crazy! (Had two but recently put one to sleep due to age related health complications. Will get a new member of the family soon so Bosco isn't all alone in the yard for long.) Also a Chicken Farmer. My flock is currently 8 chicks, 15 layers and 1 rooster! They are a blast!

I am an accountant for a national restaurant chain and love working very close to home!

I am an outdoors type and would rather be outside than inside.
