Just Quit Already: Day by Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 20, Mon July 20: Guy Clark sings: “Only two things that money can’t buy / And that’s true love and homegrown tomatoes.” We are enjoying a bountiful harvest. I can’t deny that I get overly emotionally involved with the tomato patch. We will eat tomatoes straight off the vine in all their forms, and when we max out I will make batches of tomato juice and tomato sauce that will go into the freezer. We will still be harvesting a few leftover tomatoes in mid-October before we tear out the garden.
We also harvest garlic today. We pull them up, clean off the dirt and hang them with clothespins on clothesline in the studio. There are a couple-dozen garlic plants and they will last us into next summer. They make good gifts, too: sometimes when we have people over for dinner we send them home with a head of garlic as a lagniappe; we get fresh-out-of-the-hen eggs from a woman in our neighborhood and once in a while we give her garlic as a friendly gesture. And Enid cut flowers for two bouquets: one comprised beautiful, wispier red, yellow and purple blooms, what she called “un bouquet champêtre” (“a field bouquet”) and set on the dining table; and another of huge yellow and red zinnias . . .

This program WORKS see what Penny has to say about her experience 💓
My fitness journey started 4 years ago. I’ve always been athletic and fit but let myself go in my late 40’s. When I turned 51 I knew something had to change. I started working out 6 to 7 days a week. It was mostly cardio with a couple days of strength training and I was eating 80% clean. I did this for 3 years. I lost about 20 lbs that first year but still had 20 lbs to go and it would not budge. My doctor told me about the FASTer Way to Fat Loss® in early 2017. I started my first round in March 2017 and the fat just started melting off! I did a second round then entered the VIP program and I’ve been living the FASTer Way to Fat Loss® ever since. I’m 55 now and leaner and stronger than I’ve ever been! I had been dealing with stomach issues over the last 10 years and once I started intermittent fasting ALL my stomach issues went away. The BEST part though has been watching my husband and 2 adult daughters incorporate what they saw me doing and now their digestive health is better than it’s ever been! My husband recently joined the men’s program and it’s been fun watching his clothes get bigger and bigger every day! I believe in this program 100%!

Coucou ! 👋 Hier c'était "mamie time" jusqu'à minuit ! Autant vous dire que je ne me suis pas ennuyée avec ma petite poupée Luz.(Sa maman (ma fille) applique avec elle les méthodes d'éducation Steiner et Montessori, où l'on ne contraint jamais l'enfant et où on le laisse faire ses expériences 😆 Vous avez un aperçu de ce que ça donne avec le fromage blanc 😆😂). Tout ça pour dire que j'ai bien lu (avec bonheur) tous vos commentaires sur mon post d'hier, et que je vais prendre mon temps pour vous répondre à toutes 😍 C'était génial de vous lire les filles et je constate que nous sommes en communion pour tous les petits désagréments liés à l'âge 😆 et c'est super ! (Pas les désagréments ! mais la communion !😁 😉). Nous aurons l'occasion d'échanger ici sur ce sujet et de nous échanger des petits conseils 👌 Rdv ok hier chez la nutritionniste qui m'a gardée 2h15 !! Je suis repartie enchantée par cette entrevue et je vous en ferai prochainement un update 😉 Je la revois mi septembre (cause vacances) pour un atelier "manger en pleine conscience et avec les 5 sens". J'ai hâte ! Cela répond en partie à ma "problématique". Bien sûr je vous parlerai de tout ça 🙄
Gros bisous et bon week-end ! 💕 💕

How many times have you had to face the decision between that sliver of chocolate cake for dessert or saving yourself the extra few pounds? How many times have you chosen the cake? Believe me, I’m guilty of picking dessert every time. Summer can be an unforgiving time for the muffin top. How do you compromise between covering up “the stuff” without wearing layers of clothing? Fortunately for us, that’s where sheer tops save the day. Aside from giving us that subtle bit of sexiness, sheer tops are so practical for this time of year. Just throw them on over a cami or tee and you’re good to go!
