Things that make me happy.....
1.) I weighed in this morning at 182.
That is a total loss of 80 lbs so far.
2.) Jane austen novels and movies.....
My favorite movie of all time. Persuasion (1995 version with ciaran hinds)
3.) Walking...my favorite exercise...
Which I just did...3.5 miles...I am also happy because 8 months ago I could only walk for 1 mile without becoming extremely tired.
4.) greek yogurt.
Which I am currently eating.
5.) That I was raised tough.
I learned the value of knowing who and what you are.
I'll trade being respected rather than liked any day.
6.) self sufficiency.
I was raised in the country. I think many people have become so numb to their natural surroundings that they wouldn't know how to function if you stripped away the tv, the computer and the air conditioned cars.
They have no idea what their bodies are capable of . I may not like to camp. But if I had to, I could make a fire...build a shelter. Find food (kill food). I am happy I have good outdoor skills.
7.) My children
8.) The telephone
It keeps me in contact with my family back east.
Through this little miracle of technology, I can talk to my mom two or three times a week to see how she is doing.
9.) New art pencils.
Oh, the possibilities.
10.) Books....It's like travel without the jet lag.
I walked and am about to do my upper body workout.
Hope everyone had a good day.
