Let the games begin!

The Highland Games that is. Here is a picture of DH practicing the Sheif toss.For those unfamiliar with this event, it is like tossing a bale of  hay over a bar.  If the storms hold out he will be practicing more today. He wants to be ready for games next year. I am looking forward to it. I love sports. I love our collective Scottish heritage and this will give us opportunity to learn more.

Summer is typically a slow season here. This heat isn't helping. I have been slowly plodding along at work. I have been dragging myself to the gym and sewing a bit in the evenings. I want to do more organizing but that is what cooler weather is for.

My weight has stalled at it's current level. I need to make more changes in diet and increase the intensity of the exercise, I do believe, if I want to continue to lose. Sigh, it is never easy. But then, nothing worth doing ever is!!

good for you keeping positive about the weigh loss plateau! It's too hot here to even move-I give your hubby credit for practicing throwing "hay bales" or anything else for FUN outside!
