I miss all my blogger friends and fans. sometimes I just let work and life get away with me. What do I mean by that? Well I go to work every day, come home do chores, cook, etc,,, then go to bed and start over the next day, without really taking the time to relax, enjoy my life, and keep in touch with you guys, who inspire me, make me feel good, and are just fun to hang out with.
That being said with the sun out and the beginning of spring I am determined to start anew.
I got out yesterday for the first time in a very long time and walked on the beach.
I forgot how much I enjoyed walking on the beach. The smell of the salt air, the warmth of the sun on my face, and the cool water and sand between my toes. I thank God that I am able to enjoy these gifts. I walked three miles yesterday. It was very calming and relaxing. Something I needed way more than I realized.
Today, when I woke up I was determined to get that morning walk in again.
Today as I walked the beach, the waves were beating against my legs. I stopped and talked to a couple of fishermen and today the fish were not hungry. Today was so different than yesterday, I was wondering if I was ever going to make three miles. I had to push myself, my hamstrings are sore, but you know what, I did it and am so glad I did.
I walk half way on the beach itself then turn around and walk on the sidewalk coming back. As I am walking I always say hello to everyone I meet along the way. Sometimes I am amazed how many people don’t answer back. The clouds were gorgeous in the sky today so maybe they were all looking up to heaven thanking God for the opportunity to see his beauty.
What does ‘Rawhide’ have to do with this? Well, nothing really… the cowhide just reminded me of the show I use to watch as a kid. There I go reveling my age, LOL Anyway, ‘ Rawhide’ was a show on TV when I was young. It portrayed the challenges men faced while out on the cattle trail. I guess that is the similarity cattle trail and cowhide vest.
I have this crazy awesome girlfriend, who is a real cowgirl from Texas. She gave me this beautiful cowhide vest to wear. I am just the fashion , artsy type who fell in love with the vest. my girlfriend texted me last night and asked for a pic of the vest. So here you go… me wearing this sweet cowhide vest.
Happy New Year everyone!! Last year at this time my goal was to loose weight. Well I got on the scale this morning and since last year I lost, get ready……….14 pounds. I am proud of myself. I have been eating mostly veggies, very little meat. Have also taken dairy off the menu. I have 4 more pounds to go to reach my goal. So all in all the question, “Is 14 good enough”? I would say i did GREAT!! Yes I do have 4 more pounds to go but over all I did excellent!!!I feel like I stuck to my guns and accomplished something!!! I had a good year for 2013 and I hope you did also…. i look forward to what 2014 has to offer!!!!
