Hi, Thanks for visiting my page. I live near Calgary, Alberta Canada on a small ranch where we have cattle, a feral cat and several thoroughbred horses that are on a race track all summer. The cat has it best though, all she needs to do is keep the mouse population down and if she feels lazy she doesn't even have to do that cause she has a self feeder and waterer!!! .
Gardening, playing computer games and oh yes reading are some of my favorite things to do. Love the outdoors and my house sure looks like it in summer!!! Life is grand.

I am horribly addicted to sugar. Once I start eating that demon food I just can't seem to quit so my weight yo yos like crazy. If only I would stay away from them I know my weight would remain more constant, I would feel better, have more energy and beat the depression that sets in when I go on one of my many binges. Does anyone see a pattern here? Sugar, depression, emotional eating, sugar . . . . . and round and round it goes.

June, 2020. We remain ever vigilant due to Covid 19. I am in a depressed state of mind, probably because of the isolation plus DH's health continues on the decline because of Diabetes and all it's side effects, including kidney disease which is being closely monitored as his function is now down to 10% (which is up from last month's 8%) My weight has gone up since the Spring Challenge but I'm back for the Summer Challenge after having done the In between Challenge - well sort of!!

    Don't go backwards to habits and situations that weren't helping you evolve. You
    have to keep reminding yourself why you even decided to move forward. Stay
    positive about what's to come by being consistent with your new choices. Don't
    give up on your progress.

    The only difference between a casual interest and a deep desire is that the
    latter inspires a willingness to endure struggle. ~Brendon Burchard

    The most effective method of becoming a more successful person is believing in
    yourself not only for who you are now but for who you have the power to become.

    It's not what you say to everyone that determines your life, it's what you whisper
    to yourself that has the greatest power - marcandangel

    One word doesn't make a novel but it does begin a novel and from that small
    beginning everything else follows. Even if it's just "The", write something on
    that blank page. ~Laurell K. Hamilton

    A blank page is brimming with potential. It's a masterpiece in waiting.. YOURS!
