Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

Update on my resolution

I've heard
slow and steady wins the race
So I will keep this snails pace
to try to get healthy and fit
I may stall but I won't quit
Keeping  my set goals in mind
I will work not to
fall behind
But over the years
lessons learned
a worthwhile goal
is one you  have earned
and also if I go to fast
I tend to land upon my,
ahem, Tattoo

So , here  is where I am at 12 lbs down from the start. Still not swimming (other than in Mexico ) but I have scheduled some physio, for my back and am hoping to get some time in at the pool on physio days (same location) .
Fell off my program for a bit , while living large in Mexico,, but , didn't gain , just didn't lose for a while. Then  with some birthday celebrations , I was a little less than mindful of what I was doing , and fell face first(figuratively)  into my sister's amazing cheesecake, but seriously if you had ever tasted this stuff, you would understand! True ambrosia!
All in all still doing OK, and looking forward to a steady progression towards my goal .

Hope everyone else is satisfied with their achievements so far.
Stay safe and warm !

12 pounds is quite an accomplishment! I have been riding my bike and haven't yet lost squat. My pants don't fit any differently yet either but I am sticking with it because my cardio has improved, so yeah. I will take what I can and leave the rest alone. For now anyways.

I love me a good cheesecake and I would have failed in resisting it too.

Congrats! Being on hold is definately better than gaining, so I always call it a win.
