This past Summer was hard on me I love the pool and I couldn't muster the energy to go out side and get in. The minute I stepped out side I felt the heat and it was like some one set me on fire . I couldn't stand to walk in the back yard I would be so out of breath and my face would turn red jest trying to get back in the house.
In The End of Aug I decided that I was gonna do something for myself and start eating better and exercising. My Exercise has increased since I have started this. I was laying on the couch today thinking I wanted to take a nap. But i got up put my shoes on and went out side and started pulling weeds out of the flowers beds in the front yard. I took my tunes out side and before I knew it I was sweating my behind off and I was done with one flower bed so I moved on to the next one. I got that one done too. I even cleaned off the porch and washed everything down. Now to little does the DH know But we are gonna have to go to lowes and get some Flowers for the fall/winter flower beds.
Before I would of never been able to do this . I would of never been able to handle the heat ( 89 Today) But I did and it feel great to accomplish something again. :carrot:

I am so enjoying reading about your journey. You remind me of many of the posters here that have been very successful on their journey. You are getting excited and YOU SHOULD BE! You are beginning to get glimpses of the POSSIBLE. You are realizing IT IS within your reach.

This is exciting even for me. I can hardly wait to read what you are going to do next!

And yes, get those beautiful Fall/Winter flowers. You deserve the beautiful, the best, the most eye catching. Savor the experience. It is SO much better than the food! I am so glad you know it too.

Thank you so much for that! They look beautiful! I bet it feels great looking at them. I am a HUGE FALL person. I love the mums, the winter cabbages and all that jazz. I am down South of you and my Summer flowers are still going strong--(Vincas & Pursalane)...How I would love to have the mums instead though. Maybe I will put out a couple of pots in that beautiful gold or yellow.

Beautiful job on the flowers. Do you have to mulch where you are?
