{Weight Loss} My Weight Loss Strategy – 2014

Strategy

Before I began I really believe that a lot of problems people have on diets are mental more than physical. I know that was true for me. So I sat down and made a list of the feelings and thoughts that have sabotaged me in the past, so that I could address them in my plan. Discouragement when I reach a plateau Boredom with my healthy choices (I don't like to try new things, so cutting out a bunch of unhealthy things without adding many new ones, leaves me with a very limited selection) A … [Continue reading]

Oops – I’m Out of Chicken Feed! What’s a Farm Girl to Do?

Oops

This conversation happens more than it ought to at my house. Me: J-Bear, go feed the chickens. J-Bear: Did you get feed? Me: Are we out of feed? J-Bear:  Oops, guess I forgot to tell you again.

So what's a farm girl to … [Continue reading]

Sarah Roe is officially the Money Saving Queen again!  WOO HOO! She has bought Money Saving Queen back from those who took it from her.  She is now the sole owner and totally in control again, and we (her volunteers) could not possibly be happier.  Oh if you could have seen the way our private … [Continue reading]
