Would You Like to Hear a Farm Story?
For this episode, I took the handheld recorder out in the snow and sat near the barn with the llamas. My Connemara pony, Kerrymor Madison, stood next to the fence, and our Jack Russell Terrier, Hope, joined the conversation.

 

You’ll get to learn about life on the farm as I describe our one-eyed llama, Stunning, whom Madison is so careful with as he moves around her. I also describe the coloring of Primary Colors and how we send the fleeces, sheared in the spring, to the mill for processing into rovings and yarn.

 

I also share a story about the harsh 2014 winter and the day we found Lily, the llama, shivering in the barn. Lily got to live in the old farm house for a few hours as she warmed up and enjoyed watching Let’s Make a Deal on the TV. 

 

 If you’d like to watch the video that Vickie mentions of her and Madison out in the heavy snow, you can find it on the Youtube channel:  http://www.youtube.com/vickiemaris

 

Did You Work Out Today?
Vickie encourages you in your fitness journey as she talks about her experience following the schedule in Focus T25 to build cardio, strength, and flexibility. She has finished the first five weeks of Focus T25, or the Alpha section, and has moved on to the final five weeks, or Beta.

 

My thoughts about Focus T25:  “There are three things that really stand out to me in this program. 1) I love Shaun T. He is an amazing athlete and professional fitness trainer. He keeps me motivated, and, well, focused! I also love that these workouts are designed to be done five days a week and are only 25 minutes each. They fit in my day very well. And 3) the modifier who does a low-impact version of the moves has enabled me to do this difficult program and gradually work up to some of the full versions of the moves. 

 

“My body has really been toning as I do this program, and the inches are melting from my waist line. Love it! If you’re doing this program or any workout routine, I encourage you to do what I do and keep track of your workouts online at Team Beachbody. I like to watch my workout calendar fill up in the month. I also keep track of my stats and track my progress in weight loss, inches lost, my decreasing blood pressure and more. You can set up a free account through my Beachbody website.”  http://www.beachbodycoach.com/heartsongfit
