4.12 miles fast walk…

That’s what Brenda and I did last night. I didn’t hear from Terri but she’s a farmer and I am sure had tons of stuff to get done before the day was done. I’ll be bugging her maybe today and see if she’d like to join me tomorrow. We did our 4+ miles in 64 minutes last night. Not bad I think. It was a bit faster then our last 4 and on Saturday we’ll do it again a bit faster yet. It is 11 days until my 5K that I am going to run/walk. I’m not obsessed anymore on the time, I am just going to give it my best and enjoy the race. It will be my 4th in a years time and I have got to remember that a year ago I wouldn’t of even thought about running a race. So I will except what I do and just remember to do my best and let the Lord do the rest.

Today is an easy day. Joss and I are going to the library and then to Kim’s for a visit and lunch. We’ll come home and she’ll nap and if it’s not raining I’ll go work on the wood pile a bit. Mike is off today so I’m going to try and get him to help me so it gets did and done with just a bit faster. At least I don’t think Mike works today, he has a cash job he can go to on any days off so he might work. Otherwise I’m going to cut up the last of the apples ….

…and get them into the freezer. I haven’t found anyone with more apples (I’m still looking if anyone around here knows of anyone that has some) so will eat and enjoy and freeze the rest.

I hope that everyone is having a great day. I took a peek at the scale today and just pushed it back in the corner. I might be doing all that I’m suppose to be but it isn’t showing on there. Maybe today is retention day, I haven’t a clue but it better get moving because I’m working and journaling and eating right, not even a slip so far this week. Oh well it’s only Wednesday, we’ll just see.

Take care and have a blessed day.

Hi Julie,

About the pumpkin, I just looked at the can and the only ingredient listed is "pumpkin". It's always been one of my favorite flavors along with cranberries but I also know it is good for me because of the antioxidant beta-carotene. I add a great big spoonful to my oatmeal. Most of the recipes for pumpkin seem to be desserts which I do not need. You can use it as a substitute for oil in baking kind of like using applesauce.

I've noticed some vegetarian recipes adding pumpkin and Hungry Girl put out a recipe that was just a box of devil's food cake mix and a small can of pumpkin. I tried it once and it was delicious. I definitely have a problem with 24 cupcakes in my house. I would only make it again if I could give away 22 of them. :)

Did you know that I hate apples? My sister loves them.

Chuck the scale. Look at me because I am always full of praise for you.
