Good morning! I hope you are doing well! I've just made a fresh pot of Hot Cinnamon Sunset tea so please help yourself a cup & join me out on the front porch for a little visit before we both have to start our work for today : )
Can you hear all those animal sounds? They are coming from our neighbor across the street & just down a little ways ... there behind that row of trees.
Since I mentioned movies, it occurred to me to tell you about a WONDERFUL movie ... one of my favorites ... that I think is very entertaining. It's an old black & white film called The Egg & I starring Fred MacMurray & Claudette Colbert. They move to the country to raise chickens. All the neighbors are very friendly & stop by to welcome them & help them out when needed. This movie marks the first appearance of Ma & Pa Kettle. I've always loved them & I especially enjoy seeing them in this movie. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it : )
As you know, I have embarked on a weight loss program under the care of my doctor. I wasn't going to bore you with my weight loss journey here on this blog but I received several comments saying that my journey would be of interest ... therefore I will share : ) I won't go into all the details but just give a brief update every Wednesday. Today marks the completion of my first week & I must say that it went very well. My treadmill hasn't arrived yet so I haven't been doing the walking that my doctor wants me to do but I've been getting a bit of exercise doing yard work (when it hasn't been raining) & working here in the house which is a LOT more activity than usual. I'm eating lean meats, fresh fruits & vegetables, & drinking 80 ounces of water per day. There are very few meats, fruits, & veges I can choose from but I'm not minding it at all. I feel so much better! I definitely have more energy, I'm breathing a bit better, & all in all I just FEEL better! I have a long road ahead of me (I need to lose 80 pounds) but I will see the end of that road one step at a time : ) As of today I have lost 12-1/2 pounds! I know that during the first week of a weight loss program ... especially when you are as overweight as I am ... you lose quite a bit of weight at first & a lot of that is water weight. I don't expect to lose 12-1/2 pounds every week (although it sure would be nice if I could) but I'm off to a good start : )
It's been so nice visiting with you! Are you sure you don't want another cup of tea? Yes, I have to get on with my work too : ) Since it appears like it's going to be an un-rainy day, John & I will need to get out in the yard & plant at least a few of those trees we've bought recently! I hope you have a very good day! Do stop by again : )
