Well, hello! I have been absent for quite a while, I know. Life has been busy, and my laptop has been and still is sick:( I am hoping to get it back all repaired in a week or so. Right now I am using the laptop my kind neighbor has lent me, as he has two. I am very greatful, the internet is my window to the world durring the week, when I don't get out much!
This year has been filled with improvements to our health and lifestyle. I have been dieting, on and off, but really we are just trying to get into a more natural way of eating. Farm stand season is upon us again though, and that makes it all the easier! We are doing our best to go grain free. After a LOT of research, it seems to be the way forward. I have about a hundred extra pounds on my frame that really need shedding, and conventional "low fat - low cal" diets do no good, as starving doesn't suit me:) At the moment though, I am losing weight, and it is coming off without too much effort on my part. I am also determined to eliminate sugar, corn syrup, "vegetable" oils, aspartame, soy, and all things processed. It is going to take a while, because you just have NO idea how much of the food in an average grocery store contains one or ALL of those things! We are also trying to up our intake of grass fed meats and wild caught seafood. We are lucky there, we have a farm down the road that sells their own beef, and we live in Maine, so seafood is easy to find!
We are pretty excited that camping season is here again, and can't wait to break out the tents asap. We have also dusted off the bikes and pumped up the tires, ready for a weekend bike ride! All in all it looks like its going to be a fit and fun summer! I will be back again soon, once I get my own computer back, and post some pictures of what has been happening, until then, I hope you are enjoying your summer too!
