5-28-16 emoticon everyone! Hope your weekend is STELLAR! emoticon We are just staying home & catching up on our paradise pool. I turned on the solar, today. It's going to be about 90 outside, the pool was 68 this morning. Almost time to swim! YEAH!!!!! emoticon I took Lucy for a long walk before it got hot & cleaned the house for several hours. Made Chicken-brown rice- veggie soup. I like to have it on hand during a holiday. My go to food! I've been craving raw veggies, today. Had carrots, snow peas & cucumber for breakfast! emoticon IF YOU ARE LEAVING SP BECAUSE OF THE NEW CHANGES, PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO I CAN SAY GOOD-BYE, OK? I will miss you & your support on this amazing journey we are all on, together!

emoticon emoticon UPDATES!!!!! emoticon emoticon

The last day of May! As I look back on my month, I see I DID so much, as far as organizing goes! emoticon for me! I took each day as it came & chose my life to be as positive as I could. I had several boo boo's that are finally healing & now I can get back to my 'real' life! YEAH! emoticon

emoticon Today is June 1, 2016- A new month to get it right! emoticon I'm flying most of the day, today. emoticon Zumba, work & shopping! Walking LUCY dog, EARLY, like 5:30 am before the heat gets over 100. Yep, summer is here in the SW! emoticon

emoticon 6-3-16 So my weight is up, again. I have really had to slow down, because of burning my hand & then falling. emoticon It's been a month & the scale is showing it! I KNOW what to do, but can't seem to slow down on eating. I continue like I am burning emoticon the 1200-1400 calories a day emoticon , I usually do. If anything I'm eating more, emoticon what's with that? Today I am getting 'real' with myself & NOT beating myself up. I'm ready for Sheppard Pilates DVD 2 times a week, again. Zumba 3 times a week, walking Lucy, daily & hiking, swimming is starting to happen, too. My hand is finally able to shower again. I am not making excuses. I started the month of May 6# less than I am today. YIKES!!!! I am close, very close to being able to do my 'regular' activities, YEAH! emoticon The support of SP is what is helping me get through this emoticon time.

emoticon to SPland! emoticon 6-7-16 I'm still trying to find a solution to keeping hair dry while swimming. Yes! I use a cap, sometimes 2. I LOVE to dive deep emoticon & do back flips under water. No luck on internet, just asking! THX!!!! Today I also re-started my Sheppard Pilates DVD emoticon . 49 days, later. WOW! I can sure see it & feel that my body hasn't been able to do it. (several inches up,) emoticon I'm basically healed from the events of May.... & back on my way, again! YEAH!!!! Weight going down a tiny bit, too. What a process, healing is! emoticon

6-8-16 emoticon A fun day of MANY errands & deliveries for work. Truly a fun thing for me to do. emoticon I have packed all the water emoticon , veggies emoticon & protein emoticon for a VERY hot day, here in the south west emoticon Zumba emoticon starts me off! LUCY emoticon had her walk & I am off to it! Enjoy your day & be the health you want & I will too! emoticon

6-9-16 emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon 6-10-16 "A RELAXED MIND IS A CREATIVE MIND" Yogi tea. A FAB day of hiking emoticon emoticon after a lite rain & dropped heat to 75 from 110! YES! Also swim emoticon & play with Mom #2 for the horse race! emoticon Be the health you want & I will too! emoticon

emoticon 6- 12-16 Yes! Another new week to get it right for me emoticon , how about you? emoticon

emoticon from my amazing life: 6-13-16 Today we had house cleaners come over for 2 hours. emoticon I have been de-cluttering & washing blankets & rugs for 2 days! I've also donated ALLOT of things to my fav GW store. (The master closet is DONE!!!!) They haven't been here for 6 months. I usually keep the house clean in-between. This past months challenges helped me realize I need more help. emoticon DH was happy to find the financing to make it happen. emoticon Maybe next time they can come sooner. emoticon It feels so GREAT to have a clean house! Now it is time to work on more laundry & play! emoticon

emoticon 6-14-16 THX to all of you who gave me GREAT advise about our dog, Lucy! Some tips I'm doing & some I will try! THANK YOU SPland! emoticon

6-16-16 emoticon To my DH! He is SO wonderful, yes, even after 40 years! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Balance is what I need

This mornings walk!

    Sounds like you have been a busy busy gal. Isn't it the BEST to have cleaners every once in awhile? We used to have them every other week...but I'd feel like I need to clean before the clean..ha..ha! Now I prefer to do it on my own...I'm not nearly as anal about stuff as I used to be. And since we don't have the fur baby kitty cats any longer I don't have to dust so often...ha..ha...a little dust never hurt anyone anyway did it?

    I am always cleaning and dusting at our consignment gallery so I let things slide a little at home...as long as the kitchen and bathrooms are squeaky clean I'm good! emoticon

    I'm so happy that you and DH are so happy...you definitely deserve to be after all the challenges you have been through together! emoticon emoticon

    You are so blessed to have a great husband and to still be in love as there are so many divorces. I married at 34 . I never wanted to get married as my parents divorced when I was 14 I made a vow never to marry , to me marriage is forever. I met my husband at 32 & married at 34 .We had over 300 at the wedding because I think so many people thought I would race from the alter whipping my bridal veil off running out the church door. So I really think they came to see if I I would flee I am so very blessed in my life with a wonderful loving husband.
    What a husband you have to build the beautiful pool in the shape of a heart to tell you why he did!!
    I bet your job is exciting, I love to see marionettes Have a blessed up and coming day !!

    I smiled while I read your blog. You are one happy girl, indeed. Your DH was so thoughtful about designing a backyard oasis for the both of you. Swim on and enjoy your haven.

    I want to go SWIMMING in your pool! LOL!!! It looks amazing and so inviting. Will you share your recipe with me? You know the one that you love to fix, so you can have it on hand for a holiday? I love collecting and trying new recipes.

    I LOATHE the changes that SP Land has done, but I will not leave, as my family is here.
