Last night I just wasn't hungry. Same thing this morning. Nothing sounds good and I really don't want to cook. I hope this doesn't mean by the time my appetite returns that I'll go hog wild.

I wish tht I had my own personal chef. Maybe I should make that my goal. Hmmm...It sure has some posibilities. I do love to cook. I'm just not in the mood.

This week has been a bit difficult. My Aussie was so sick that I was actually afraid she might not make it. Thankfully, the prayers, the antibiotics and fever meds have done their job. She is back to normal. How do I know this? Well, for two days she wouldn't eat or chase the cat. Last night, she chased the cat not only off the porch but up a pine tree.She spun around ran back to the deck with what can only be described as a swagger and had a big old grin on her face. Usually I don't approve of her chasing the cats. Last night it was like a victory!

We are still praying that the rain will stop. It hasn't. There is flooding all around us. Still a lot of rain in the seven day forecast too. I am not sure what we will do about planting this year. All of that is still up in the air. The men are all talking about it but no decision has been made. There are a lot of hypotheticals out there. Lots of what ifs. I am thankful I have a job where I can always take more hours if I need to. If we absolutely had to, we could live off of my salary.

I need to plan some meals for this weekend and take the thinking out of this weight loss game. I work all weekend so if I don't plan something today, all of my meals will be left to chance or to my own devices. Neither works in my favor.

Off to evaluate the fridge. Have a great weekend.

My focus for the next month will be portion control. Some days are easier than others. I like to try and fill up on raw veggies before I have my actual meal. Drinking lots of water beforehand is also helpful. Sometimes at work, the portions get larger than I should have. Its my own fault but something I must be aware of.

I am still losing weight, rather slowly but still heading in the right direction. Praise God I haven't given in after 6 months. I find that I need to keep evaluating almost daily, in order to stay on track. It's been helpful to have an accountability partner too.

My weight loss partner lost 100# last year so she knows the struggles. She has a lot more drive than I do but she is great at encouragement and she has so much enthusiasm. It is another small tool to use to insure my success.

I got my rhubarb pies made yesterday. I had a very small piece last night and I am satisfied. Now I won't crave or feel the need to cheat. I like them warm out of the oven and then I am done.I have a pie to deliver to the Aunt and Uncle here in the next hour. They gave us the rhubarb so the sharing of it will go full circle!

My Molly dog was so sick earlier in the week but the antibiotics have kicked in and I think she feels almost 100%. Yesterday, she didn't chase the cat off the porch in the morning when she went out to potty. Today, she ran the cat into the pine trees so I'd say she is back to normal. (I think the cat likes it better when she is sick!)

We got another 1.6" of rain last night. Still nothing in the corn fields yet. If this keeps up, we may have to start a fish farm as I fear most of our property will be under water.

Today, I am thankful for hot coffee, healing Molly dog, fresh rhubarb, my job, my husband and his family. Life is good!

May was a difficult month for me in the weight loss arena. I wasn't able to get outside and garden or walk as much as I wanted with all of the rain. I didn't stop exercising but I think I physically do more if I am outside. It just doesn't feel like work then. I am down 3# for the month. I was shotting for 5 but I'll take the loss where I can get it. At least I am not gaining.

Yesterday, my Molly dog was so sick. I was actually scared. Her temp was 104.4 and I was praying so hard that it would be something fixable. She is 11 years old now and at that age, anything can go wrong. Well, the vet was able to figure things out. She is on antibiotics and today she is like a new dog. You would think that as a nurse, I could deal with a sick dog but I turn into a blithering idiot. When my own pets are sick I become unable to think clearly or rationally. I am just SO thankful that Molly is recovering. She has half my heart. My other dog, Goose, has the other half. LOVE LOVE LOVE my pets.

I am off the next 2 days. The rain is gone at least for now and the hubby wants rhubarb pie. My goal today is to make pie and not eat any of it. I do love rhubarb though. This will be a great challenge for me. Please all say a prayer that I am strong against the pie demons.

And if any you are really taking prayer requests, please pray that we have wind and heat here in NE Iowa. We haven't gotten any crops in yet with all the rain this month and my farm family is one big stress bomb.

Thanks in advance!
