Catching Up

I know that I have been away from the blogoshere for awhile and just wanted to give you an update.

The Annual Quail Flats Wild Game Feed went off without a hitch and there was plenty of great food and tall tales. The favorite dishes included, Elk Kabobs, Venison Stuffed Mushrooms, Parmesan White Fronted Goose and some killer PB Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Which reminds me, I still need to get that cookie recipe. We had somewhat cool weather yet the 2 dozen plus friends that came were dressed and ready for anything.

Since the game feed I have been increasing my activity level as my knee allows. I am very relieved and happy to say that 4 months after the accident I am roughly at 80%. Still need to be careful, yet able to do cardio and some strenght training. I anticipate a full recovery by 6 months.

Not long after the game feed I got knocked down by a bug and it took me several weeks to get back to my routine. Since then I have made some changes in the kitchen, primarily eating a lot more veggies and generally very clean food. This may sound a bit contrary to being a huntress. Yet as I get older it becomes more challenging to stay fit and healthy. I'll still have the occasional cookie and good ol' cheeseburger, just not as often. Since tweaking my food I have had my energy levels skyrocket, am sleeping better and have even lost a few pounds. Geeze, nothing wrong with this recipe! Now I just need to sell this home and get back into Bend. My overall goal is to see just how good I can stand it!

I will be posting once again yet not as often as before. I am sorry for not giving you all a heads up. Thank you to the folks who have checked in to see what happened to me. Rest assured I am thriving and doing well. I just needed a break from writing. I look forward to catching up with my regular followers and meeting some new ones.

For now, have a great day and make it count!

Glad to hear you are doing much better. It's the perfect time of year to find some really good fresh veggies.

No worries, get better and keep working on that knee. Deer season is coming.

Terry Scoville said...

THW, just about time for the "farmers markets" to start showing up. I am so ready!

Thanks Rick, yea that's what I keep telling myself too! Getting closer with each passing day.

Good to hear from you again - I completely understand needing a break sometimes!

Everyone needs a break every now and then.. And, with summer here, it's the perfect time to start ingesting more fresh fruit and veggies!

Glad to hear you're on the mend!

So I would guess the bear hunt had to be put on the back burner for this year???

Glad the knee is on the mend. This thing of putting years on us and miles on the pins does catch up to us. I've even started walking a couple miles a day just to keep the cardio clicking right. Haven't given up the cookies or ice cream yet though.

Glad things are going well.

You're right Gary, no bear hunt this Spring. If I hadn't had reservations about it than I'd have been out there. Looking at the bigger picture these days. Some good things do come with the years.
Sure wish I's sitting there eating ice cream with you and Suzy! You'd best have a bowl for me. Thanks.

Terry Scoville said...

Blessed, DP and Caz, thanks for understanding. Sure good to hear from you all!

I've got a lot of reading to catch up on.

You've inspired me Terry! I added another session of intervals to my training as you suggested. We'll have to share results in a few weeks.

Terry Scoville said...

Cristina, good for you. Enjoy the ride!

Kristine Shreve said...

Glad to hear things are going well. Changing your diet and lifestyle can really help improve your quality of life. Sounds like it is working for you.

Terry,
Get that knee in shape! Snipe season will be here before long. Now if I could lose a whole lot of weight I might be able to keep up with Skip.
