GETTING TRAVEL TRAILER aka Violet READY FOR HER MAIDEN VOYAGE

These are excited times for me!!!Just Got Home with Violet Aug 24 2017

On my way home from going to Missouri for the total, solar eclipse, I bought my 1996 Aerolite 25′ travel trailer, aka VIOLET, in the Memphis area off of craigslist!! (after much research and avoiding a couple of scams)

She’s kinda old but in great shape for an older gal. We have been doing a few things to get her ready for camping. My husband, as I’ve said many times, can fix anything. And, even though this camper is kinda “my thing”, he has really stepped in to help like he always does. He is very special! For one big thing, he doesn’t discourage me from following a dream.

We have traveled a lot over our 24 years together before and after we got our Class C motorhome. We’ve been  all over the lower 48 together, as well as Hawaii, Jamaica, and Canada. During our married life, my youngest daughter and I have been to Europe twice. When hubby and I went through Teton, Yellowstone, Glacier and between, on our way to Seattle and British Columbia, we traveled in our motorhome. It is very comfortable, but their were two things we didn’t care for: 1) the terrible gas mileage and 2) not wanting to tow a vehicle and, therefore, not having a separate vehicle for errands and site-seeing.

Now we have retired to the country, so hubby is over his desire to travel (except maybe for one more trip to the Lobster Fest in Rockland, Maine), is content staying home with the animals who need care, and does not mind me continuing to travel. I plan to travel with family or girlfriends or solo with my grand-dog Annabelle, who now lives with us.

Annabelle January 31 (3)So, we’ve been getting Violet ready for camping… she needed a battery, a few light bulbs, the light fixtures washed, a license plate mounted, cabinets cleaned out and sanitized, a leak fixed under the kitchen sink, and the kitchen sink unclogged. We tried to open the awning for the first time today, and it looks usable but with some work on the frame connections. And, we ordered a spare tire.

Fitness Challenge

I have accepted the YouTube challenge of Jamie at Enigmatic Nomadics #enchallenge2017 to set my own goals to be reached by November 1, 2017 (2 months).

My goals are:

(1) to lose 20 lbs and

(2) to walk on my treadmill 6X per week.

I started my YouTube channel Molders Mosaic and posted beginning weight and measurements.

I am using http://www.usda.gov/supertracker to count calories and watch out for nutrition. Considering my long-range wt-loss goals, my calorie goal each day is a maximum of 1250 calories. I have been in this challenge two(2) days and have stayed under my max calories and walked on my treadmill each day.

I am looking forward to this journey!! If you want to join a challenge with me check out my YouTube channel and SUBSCRIBE and use #MoldersMosaicFitness to post your progress pictures on Instagram.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me an article about Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) from Safflower Oil. I did some research online and decided to try it for muscle tone, appetite suppressing, and wt loss. The first few days, I immediately started gradually losing a little weight without changing my eating. I have found that I am more satisfied with the portion control I am using. It is a helpful strategy for me for wt loss to eat smaller meals more often — 5 or 6 per day — or what we might call 3 meals and 2 or 3 snacks. Feel free to use this link to Amazon to check out CLA, whether or not you are ready to buy it:
