Is it already May... Almost June

Wow I have been slack on making a post. Not a lot has happen around here since I posted last. I am still doing Weight Watchers and I have lost 13.8 pounds in 3 months. This is a very slow weight loss but I just can not lose weight like I did when I was young. I am so Happy that I have lost this much and slow weight loss they say you are more likely  to keep it off. I do over indulge on food but on WW the usual weight loss is around 1-2 pounds a week and that is what I have been doing.

We have not gotten our gardens planted yet it has been wet around here but hopefully this week we will get it planted. I am so ready for some fresh veggies.

We have had memorial day at my church where my daddy and his mom my grandma is buried.

I had a good Mother's Day and I hope that all of the mothers out in the blog world had a good day also.  I got me a new sports bra made by shefit. I love it! I also got me some new protein bars that are yummy and only 3 smart points. I also got me a new WW cookbook.



Mother's Day weekend is memorial day at the Church that my mama and her family is buried at.

March...

Tomorrow is the first day of April and I have been so slack on blogging it is not even funny. I need a new battery for my notebook. It has gotten where it only keeps a charge for about an hour and then it dies. I am planning on getting a battery this month. So little has been going on around here that I have not had much to blog about.

In the month of March I rejoined Weight Watchers. I have lost 6 pounds so far and I hope to do better. Being older has really slowed my losing weight powers. I have still been exercising daily except on Sundays that I take for a rest day. I have gotten back into fitbit challenges so I try to walk everyday during the week. I am trying hard to get my food on track and I feel like for most part I am doing so much better on other days it seems so hard.
1st day of WW

 1st 5 pounds


Need to always remember these words.

Also this month I went to my first tour of tables at a  local church. I got to see some old friends and spend time with my church family. Here are some of the tables.
This is the table my friends and I sat at. My friend Heather designed it

The farmers cousins wife did this one

and I just liked this one
I also won a devotion book that I am going to start tomorrow.  

I  have been going to bible journaling and I am loving it. I have been loving the warmer weather. We have 2 new calves from our new bull Sully and they are heifers. 



I made myself a new tank top from one of my favorite songs by Mandissa "I am Just Unfinished"


We went fishing and only caught a few very small crappies but my son Seth caught a pretty good size bass.

Well I guess that is about all that happened in March. I will try to do better blogging in April. I am starting a new Beachbody exercise program tomorrow Transform 20 with Shaun T. I am nervous about it. Also in April It is my birthday month and I am excited about that!! Also going to Joytime Lady conference and Natalie Green is singing I am so excited to be going with my church family and I won 2 tickets to take 2 of my family/friends. I will be blogging about that. Well I will close for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Nothing to talk about but rain....

I have gotten so slack on posting a blog. I don't have much to talk about. WW is going good so far. I have lost 2.8 pounds. I got my dear from to join with me and she lost 4 pounds the first week. I have got to do better. I have not lost anything this week so far and weight in is Tuesday. I  am trying to get my act together. It has been chilly and rainy and I have not been out to take any pictures. We have a new calf maybe i can get out this week and get a picture of it.

I went shopping and got myself some new tops. I wore this one the other day and realized that my elephant has what looks like Christmas lights on it. But you know what I don't care I am going to wear it any way. I love.

It has been warm enough for the daffodils to bloom. 



I have got to buy a new battery for my MacBook it has gotten where it will not keep a charge. It is fixing to die right now so I guess I better close. Thanks for stoping by.

Weight Watchers

I have rejoined weight watchers after probably 10 years of not. I came so close to to goal back in 2003 and I quit and never could do good at it anymore. I only joined for 3 months and I am hoping that this will be what I need to get my act together. I really would love to get to goal this year. It is only 35 pounds and that is doable. I was surprised that with my clothes on bluejeans and a sweatshirt I weighed 196.4 I was kinda of proud of that. I know that sounds weird but I am trying to find the Joy in everything.

I am also doing the best devotion called Messy People by: Jenifer Cowart. I highly recommend it.
It has been raining so much around here. The farm is a muddy mess and I have not taken any pictures lately. Well this is not much of a post but I tried. Thanks for stoping by.

Collards and Turnips

It is supposed to get really cold here Sunday night. 17 degrees is what they are saying so the Farmer went out and cut all of the collards and pulled a bunch of turnips so they cold will not hurt them.





I have worked all evening cutting up and cooking collards and freezing them. We love some collards. 
I love boiled and french fry turnips. They are so yummy. Me and the Farmer bought us an Air fryer. 


I love this thing!! Now I am debating if I should get the instant pot next. I like things that cook fast. I would be willing to get rid of my crock pot for something fast!! 

I am starting 2 bible studies next week. One is It is not supposed to be this way and the other is Messy People. 



I hope I am not getting too much on my plate but they both are too good to pass up. 

I also started my exercise program. I am doing a hybrid of 80 day obsession and LIIFT 4. I am greatly regretting that I took off so long doing hard exercise for the holidays. I exercised but I was doing a dance exercise and it just don't make you sore like weights and squats. I am so sore I could cry. I am working hard on getting my nutrition under control. I watched Rachel Ray today and I heard a something that was talking to me.
"It is not about the number on the scales It is about how I feel physically and mentally." I am going to put this on some cards and post around my house to remind me. I am not about getting skinny that is never going to happen it is about health.

Well Thanks for stopping by.

Working on Goals....

Today is January 13. That means it is 13 days into the New Year I am working on getting my act together to meet my goals for this year. We have a new accountable group on facebook. All the ladies are working on their goal for the month of January. I have been meaning to write this post since last week.
My goals for January are:
I am going to read the bible through again this year.
To get on track with nutrition that means to track every bite of food I put in my mouth everyday. No free days
I am going to do 3 day refresh
to lose 5 lbs or more for the month
to keep track of measurements

So last week I completed 3 day refresh


In just 3 days, you can help get your health, energy, and vitality back on track. Includes Shakeology®, Vanilla Fresh, Fiber Sweep, a Program Guide, and a bonus Maintenance Guide.

Monday morning weight

Breakfast for 3 days Shakeology with a banana and water

Green tea for snack and I forgot the picture of my fiber sweep

Lunch salad, with 1 tsp olive oil and lemon juice and my vanilla shake with banana for lunch
Supper veggie broth vanilla shake and steamed veggies 
I did this for 3 days 
End weight
This week I am buckling down I am doing a combination of Weight Watchers and 2BMindset for my nutrition program I am also going to do PIYO for my exercise. I hope to post on instagram. I going to try to do a story on instagram. It is a video of your day what every may have happen. I have never video myself and posted it for people to see. I can not even believe I am sharing the scales with you. But I am really hoping they will be a lot lower by the end of January. 

Well if you have read this far thanks for stopping by. I will try to post more interesting post.
