Six Word Saturday

 
 
Man, it feels like it has been ages since I did a 6WS post.
 
I guess it really has been...so here goes it.
 
Tis the season.  Farmers Market Time!
 
I love this time of the season.
 
When the local farmers markets open.
 
If you can't grow your own fruits and veggies
nor join a local CSA, then this is the next best thing.
 
Take a weekly trip to your local farmers market to stock up on fresh,
locally grown fruits and veggies.  Not only healthier for your coming
straight from the grower but also helps  support your local farmers,
maybe your neighbor, your best friends cousins neighbor,
who knows but it is someone local not a thousand miles away.
 
Some would argue and say it is more expensive but it really isn't. 
I actually have found in many cases it is actually cheaper
because no longer are you paying for transport, overhead, etc. 
Within the market, just like the stores, it can be different prices,
so make sure to compare the prices and the
quality of the product just like you normally would.
 
We love going to these regularly and especially
so on nice warm days like it will be today. 
We will saunter around, people watch, listen to some music,
maybe get some carmel corn, the kids faces
painted and of course leave with an armful of produce.
 
Sounds like a pretty good Saturday to me.
 
What are you doing this weekend? 
 How is the weather in your neck of the woods?

 
 
 
 
 
I am linking this post up with Cate at Showmyface.com.
 
Want to join in on the fun?
 
Write a post about what is going on in
your life right now in 6 words.
 
Elaborate or not.
 
Add pictures or not.
 
It is up to you and then link it.
 
Make sure to visit some of the other posts.
 
There are lots of awesome people that post to this meme.

At Which I Scratch My Head....

Not that I want to complain by any means...NO WAY.  I WILL.NOT complain.  I will however scratch my head because I am a little puzzled.

OK, so you all know that I have been trying to lose some weight since the new year.  It was not a resolution by any means because those of course are meant to be broken.  My weight loss was going to be a life change. 

--->>>Eat better. 

--->>>Portion control.

--->>>Exercise more. 

--->>>Drink more water.

You know the drill, right?

So then if you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I have completely fallen off the wagon so to speak.  I started a new job a couple months ago (mid Feb) and ever since then because of my new hours (for the most part), I have very limited time in the late afternoon/evening to exercise (much)....Long story short, although I have been more conscious to my eating choices, portion control, etc...still not drinking nearly enough water ...but......even with that, I have lost another 20 or so pounds since the last time I weighed in!

I got on the scale today over at my mother in laws house and had to ask her if it was broken.  That is how stunned I was.  I thought for sure that I wasn't losing anything rather feeling kinda sluggish lately and packing it back on...but no siree bob. 

I am still in shock.  And this gives me hope that even the small changes can make a difference (not to mention I think part of my weight gain was due to stress from my other job too). 

I am almost half way to my goal!  I am so excited!  I can visualize my goal weight...it is within my grasp. 

How are you doing on your weight loss goals?
