You know this is all your fault! All those yummy blog posts I've been seeing, reading, and drooling over have finally taken their toll! I am gaining weight! LIKE 13 POUNDS! DANG!
For those of you who don't know, about a year ago I decided I needed to lose weight, a lot of weight, and I did lose about 60 pounds! I had 20 or so to go to meet my goal, and then it happened. I started feeling so much better, people said I looked good, and I became rather happy right where I was. Then came harvest.
Don't know how you all do it on your farm, but I think my sisters at Real Farmwives of America need to put our heads together to come up with healthy meal choices on the run! Sitting in the combine AND being in charge of lunch made for quick, not so nutritious choices. We don't have a McDonald's or Wendy's or Burger King in our county, but we do have a Subway and a local BP that makes Noble Roman's personal pan pizzas. So you can imagine between pizza and ham sandwiches and "goodies," a few pounds crept back on through that time. I thought November would be my time to get back on the horse. I tried Zumba, which I AM going back to after next week!, and tried to get back on my good eating road, but the birthday food, baptism food, and Thanksgiving food were too tempting. I wasn't tempted last year, but my willpower this time around is "gone with the wind." So far.
Here we are December 3. Yesterday I went to the big town to find some jeans to wear. You know it's time to buy new jeans when you walk outside and can REALLY feel the wind blowing in places where the wind probably should not blow, at least at these cold temperatures.
HEY! What happened to good old jeans? Now I do like the stretchy kind that allows me to go a size smaller than usual, but DANG! I want my go-out-to-the-cowlot- to work jeans!?!?! Where did they go? Couldn't fine them anywhere in the Mall. Gonna have to hit up good ol' TSC, Tractor Supply Company for you non-aggies out there, to see if I can find some Wranglers or Levis that "fit" the bill!
Sigh.....Time to find something that fits in my closet and get this day started. BIG craft fair at the girls' school tomorrow. Tall Guy helped me make 20 quart bags of puppy chow last night. Yeah, I know, I can shoot myself in the foot all too well!
SO NO MORE GLORIOUS HOLIDAY TREATS ON THESE BLOGS!!!!! 'K???????????
Just kidding! Have a great day, stay warm, plan a fun family weekend, and jump on the treadmill with me as we get through these last weeks of food feasting!
