WOE: Trying to resist anything white.
Deb~BYE! Happy Cruising!

CJ~The Lake sounds nice. Yay...no Gain on Vacay! It will be nice to have SIL to help you out for the coming Holiday season. Yeah...I'm at a lower elevation now...but, it's Still Cold here. Frost in the meadow this AM!

Karen~How was the Horse Show?

Weight still down from my tough move (-8#)! Went SUP'n on the lake yesterday. It was 48 when we got on the water! That's the lowest temp that I have ever been on the lake! Just don't fall in...right? It sure was beautiful & calm with only a few boats out. There were Hundreds of ducks in spots! Guess they were taking a break from migrating south. Was beautiful watching them take off skipping along the water. Off to Yoga I go.

Horse show went well. Thanks for asking. My legs are still sore

GS is a hoot at these things.

CJ~Back on plan yet? Yeah, I've seen pelicans here too. But, not this year. Maybe they have already gone south too? We have Lots of Canadian Geese here.

Karen~Glad your horse show went well & that your GS makes you LOL Hooting! I went riding yesterday & I'm saddle sore today too! Not my legs though! Yeah, it was LOTS of Work moving plus the stress of buying/selling & renters moving out/new ones moving in our rental in Maui! I kind of Lost my Appetite...was just too tired to Eat!

Went Horseback riding yesterday with a few GFs. It was FUN! Haven't been on a Horse in years! Last time was in Maui w/SIL around 6yrs ago?! Went out to Lunch afterward. It was a Beautiful Fall Day! A bit saddle sore today. Sore right along the bottom of my gluteal fold. I don't have much junk in my trunk back there. It's tough bouncing around on a hard saddle! I had a feisty horse who wanted to Trot when I didn't! Had to say Whoa & pull back on her reins a few times! Kuddos to Karen for being such an excellent Equestrian! K...off to move it...move it @ Yoga!

Today's excercise was 1 hr motorcycle ride. With extra calories burned coming home--Sun was down and I was COLD! Shivering gets me extra credit, right???????

Glad you enjoyed your time on horseback. The horse can make a difference on level of enjoyment.

I've been horseback riding once. No training. Ouch. And the horse wouldn't pay attention to my orders. started trotting or something, I was bouncing all over the place , then turned and headed back to the stable . Can't say I was sorry when we got back

Kare are you still riding in shows or kicking back and enjoying watching GS ? Yes shivering cou ts big time!

Pat still sore ? any more ice in the birdbath? How is your fiesty squirrel?

All quiet here. On plan. Mostly. mom doing better. I ordered some cbd oil to see if that will help with pain. Wish me luck.

DH has one...because I felt sorry for him getting chased by old cows in calving season. Ours can be pretty protective

In summer, they are less protective,so that is when I go.....

But it is nice to go out and play with the 2 new young horses......

All Bummed out here! I had a car accident yesterday! No one was hurt...just our cars! Mine got the worst of it! The whole front of my car is Crunched (worse on the left side)! Peeps picked up parts off the road for me including my license Plate! Sooo darn lucky no one got hurt!! Tow truck driver decided it was OK for me to drive to a nearby auto shop after he removed some dangling parts. I drove slowly with hazard lights on while still dangling something that was scraping on the road! The guy who started the accident left the scene! It was another car that hit me! The driver was oblivious to the situation that was going on!
Oh, well... Now to deal w/insurance adjuster, auto damage expert, & auto body shop today before we leave for Maui tomorrow! Off to Yoga I go. Laters.

Amazing how often the cause of the accident drives off! GRRRRRR.
Glad you are okay.

Pat- So glad nobody was hurt!! It's really scary how many distracted people are driving these days... they just are not aware of their surroundings.
Sorry about the car and all the hassles ahead with insurance, repairs, etc.

Cheryl: Glad Mom's doing better. Good job being (mostly) on plan... that is much better than completely off plan. Which is how I do things. Either all the way on or off for me.

Karen: Sounds like you've been busy as usual
Glad your horse show went well. Laughing when I think about the cows chasing dh around..

Deb: Your cruise is probably just about wrapped up, I hope you had a lovely time. I bet you kept up with your running too

So, I have been really struggling with getting any kind of weight loss going. I just keep bouncing between the same few pounds which is really frustrating me. I know I feel better all the way around on low carb/ ketogenic diet, but it does not get me losing weight like it used to. So, I am adding in intermittent fasting (I only eat between 10-6 each day) and I have given up my nightly wine completely. So far this week I have dropped 5 pounds doing that. I am really focusing on eating lots of veggies each meal and only 3-6 ounces of protein. So far it's working... hopefully it will keep working.

My Dad is finally scheduled for the heart valve replacement on November 6th.
He is very anxious to have it done as he is struggling more and more with low energy and he does not like that at all.

We are starting to move into fall weather and temps... it has been a nice change and colors are just starting to get going.

Hi Guys! Aloha from Maui!
Thx guys for your concern & comments about my accident! Still thinking of how I could have or what I should have done to have avoided the collision? Thinking...like, I should have put my car in reverse back into the suicide turning lane?

V~Hear ya on the on & off! Sounds like you have a good plan in place now though! -5# Hoping all goes well w/your Dad's upcoming surgery.

Deb~WELCOME BACK!

Well, yesterday was all about errands & our big Costco shop. Whew! Today, going off to Yoga w/my Favorite Instructor here. Hope she doesn't beat us up today? Not sure if I'm ready for that?! Still trying to get acclimated w/the Humidity & time change here. After...some more errands & a Walmart shop. Laters.

Yippee!! Deb's back!!

You know my Dad is still going to the gym most days. But due to his tiredness he is doing more swimming and sitting in the sauna. He is counting the days for sure.

I am still losing weight steadily, so hopefully that keeps up. Even though I know it will slow down, I hope to keep losing at least 2 pounds per week. Down 6 this week.
