Boy, I feel as strong as a newborn kitten! Just watering the gardens and the planters and picking a few peas and a couple heads of lettuce is about enough to send me to bed! I ended up eating scrambled eggs for breakfast and dinner yesterday and applesauce for lunch. Otherwise I had popsicles made from coconut water and blueberries. Everything was tolerated fine, so today will increase the amounts and if all is well during the day I may have a light dinner. Talk about a boost in the weight loss department! Another pound down since yesterday - this is certainly NOT my favourite way to do it, but at least there is a benefit to all the nastiness... I got brave and put on one of my sleeveless shirts today, I know my arms are really way too fat to wear something like this but there are only the kids to see me.
If I can summon up the energy today I may try to inflate the kiddies pool and clean it out and fill it. The weather is so hot and I know the kids will have a blast playing in it. Just too hot to enjoy being outside except early morning and late evening but the mosquitoes are in full force at the moment too. There is a swampy area in the pasture below the irrigation ditch and it breeds them in squadrons!! Fortunately the Burt's Bees insect repellant really works so I don't have to worry about getting all those toxins on board when we go out. Love that stuff - it even works to keep chiggers off!! Excellent stuff - you do need to reapply from time to time, but I love the herbaceous smell so that works just fine for us
I spent the day watching movies and reading books yesterday Not often that I give myself permission to have a day like that - but at the moment I can only be up and about for a short while before lying down again. I found the series by Mary O'Hara that I adored as a child, My Friend Flicka etc. Filmed in 1943 and I am loving it - so many flashbacks to my childhood and my horse dreams ....
