Loving the weather...

Well I have been loving this warm weather after that cold spell last week. We have been going out and staying until 9 in the evening. I am still committed to doing my exercise everyday! On Tuesdays and Thursdays I am still going to dance fitness and on Thursday nights I do dance and pilates. I am really wanted to get this weight off and I am doing better with my food. This week I could have done better but I love a cheeseburger from a little diner and I had one two times this week. Oh well I have been doing better really I have.

I actually laid out in the sun 2 days this week for an hour at a time. I use to could lay out in the sun all day but the older I get the harder it gets. I do it because tan fat looks better than white fat. LOL!

We also set out some flowers and some more tomato plants in our raised bed. I can not wait for some fresh veggies. Oh that reminds me the Farmer was digging up some hard dirt for me in my bed and a black snake come out of a hole and started striking at his face. Which was only about 2 to 3 feet away. I screamed and he killed it with the shovel. We try not to kill black snakes but this was necessary since it was striking at him. We also saw a car wreck this week. The person was not hurt.

Today it is raining again. Sunday's are my rest day so I was lazy today. I ate to much junk food today. My goal for next week is to not eat any junk food. My cheat day is going to be Saturday and I have got to stick to this. 

Well thanks for stopping by I am really trying to do better with my blog.

Turkey season is over and the farmer did get a turkey this year. I personally don't turkey hunt but I love taking pictures of them. They are hard to capture at times because they move so fast.  I took these today when we went over to the pasture.

I also took this picture of the donkeys. That is Valentine standing and Jenny laying on the ground.

I bought some Impatiens plants today and planted them. I forgot to take a picture of them. I will try to get a picture of them tomorrow. 

Well stop for stoping by.

Things change everyday. Sometimes we love the change and ready to start and embrace it right away. Other times we are scared and don't want to go anywhere near it. I have been through a lot of change in my 49 years of life and I know there is a lot more to come.

Today it came to my attention that they tore down the Pickett Dime store in Robbins, N.C. My granny worked in this store when i was a little girl. She used to tell me stories of how I would find a toy I wanted and I would holler across the store "Hang"! I could not say granny and I called her "Hang". Isn't that so funny. Cecil Saunders that had a beauty shop under the store. It is all gone. It makes me so sad. I did not take these pictures I borrowed them from a friend.

Last weekend we went to Dunrovin Country store down out of Southern Pines. It is a cool store slam packed full of stuff It would take hours to just look at everything in the store. 

I got this one off the internet 

I also got this one off the internet

I took this one I just love the metal horse

I took this one also I also loved the metal cow. 

I also wanted to share some flowers in the yard. They have almost completely stopped blooming but they were so beautiful. 

My peonies 
My roses

We went over to the land and there was a pair of owls calling to each other I got a picture of one of them. Isn't beautiful! I would love to be a wildlife photographer but I have got to get a lot better at it. I have been trying to capture as many different things I see. I also got a cool picture of a bullfrog. They did not load in order but they are to hard to move around.

I am going to try to get back into blogging. Thanks for stopping by.

A little bit of everything....

Where do I begin? I have gotten slack on so many thing and writing in my blog is one of them. I have been terrible not to read my bible daily. This makes me sad but I am trying to do better. I am still working everyday on getting my weight under control. I have got to say I am proud of myself for exercising everyday, but I have realized that exercise is only 20% of the solution and food is 80%. I have a lot of work to get my eating under control. I will do good for 3 or 4 days then I will blow it.
It is so hard to eat healthy when the rest of the family loves to eat out really I just love to eat!!!

I am proud of myself though. I bought the 21 day fix exercise dvd. I have done it for 31 days. I have lost 7 pounds and 12 all over. So I am making progress again. Some of my aches and pains are better but some have starting hurting. I just need to get my eating under control.

Mother's Day has came and gone and I had a great one. My boys got me a new fitbit surge.
I try to get 10,000 steps a day and some days I get more and some days less but this was just the beginning.
Me after my workout.
