lately i've been frustrated at how much easier it is for me to put on the lbs....
i know some have said when you hit 30 it's hard to lose weight and easier to gain...
which i have really found truth in that.
i've also notice having a hysterectomy shortly after my 30's isn't helping matters either.
i read that after a hysterectomy most women gain 20 to 30 lbs. Yikes.
with all that being said and with me starting to notice my figure looking more roundish i decided
to get more active. i've join Zumba classes as well as bands class to try and stay moving.
raising two almost teens, my life is busy with their sports and activities that i'm finding it hard
to make important time for myself to stay in shape. as well as cooking healthier meals.
it's hard to cook healthy when you have so much going on.
anyway my mom introduced me to my daily plate online.
it has helped some of her friends to lose or atleast keep track of their calories and activities daily.
i'm hoping it will help me too get rid of a few extra lbs.
now if i can just find the time to go there daily to mark stuff down.
wish me luck.
Have a party to attend tonight...clothing party and i've never been to one like this. Should be interesting. CAbi is the name. Take a peek if you'd like HERE. Then tomorrow headed to our small towns craft fair in hopes to find some Christmas gifts. Haven't really started Christmas shopping yet and it's starting to make me panic...Even though I know "Christ"mas isn't about all the gifts.
I think the panic is coming from some friends who say they are done shopping and I haven't even given it much thought yet.
The boys are headed out deer hunting again saturday morning (brady shot one of his deers last weekend) and of course my hubby did not have the camera. he did get a not-so-good-shot with his phone that i may post later. Anyway while they do that I will be baking a dessert and salad for church on Sunday as we are having our thanksgiving dinner. This is always a good time with good food.
So there it is the weekend planned out. (oh yeah I forgot we are putting the tree up) And yes my husband thought I was crazy early on this too by the way.
1-1/2 cups patience 1 lb adaptability 3/4 cup tolerance 1 tsp. courage A dash of adventure.
combine above ingredients. add two tablespoons elbow grease. let sit alone for one year. marinate frequently with salty tears. pour off excess fat and sprinkle ever so lightly with money. knead dough until payday. season with a lot of international spices. bake for 20 years or longer, until done.
