DAILY SUPPORT GROUP TIME:
Take a moment to breathe!
This added oxygen is like fuel to a fire as far as your body fat is concerned. It's a catalyst for burning more fat. Take a deep breath inhaling from your BELLY (not your chest), then let out a big, slow exhale for a few seconds.

Stomach problems ... miserable. Itchy rash covering my entire body, especially hands. Dermatologist appt a week from this Thursday. Meanwhile, using medical gloves to milk the goat, which is NOT comfortable. Had to bring in my fav chicken from the workshop to our living rom because other chickens pecked at her and she started bleeding. She's better and should be going back out tomorrow. Moving all chickens back to their outdoor accommodations because we're not expecting any more below-zero weather any time soon. Kid has appointment tomorrow (Wed) for his heart and may come away hooked up to a heart monitor/halter. Getting back in the swing of things with schoolwork and helping me with the animals. I've made my plans, now need to come up with step-by-steps to accomplish them. Now... I'm gonna take my own deep breath, get out of bed, get dressed, and start my day. It's a new day... worthy of a new song and a new start!
