ARGGGH!
Wednesday, July 30, 2008      3 comments

I know that I asked for a challenge for this year. I wanted to lose as much toward my goal as I could do and still be healthy. But..... With the fall on Easter, my recovery, Falcao having surgery and now stuck in his "cave" for another 2 ... Read more
A Great Weekend!
Sunday, July 20, 2008      2 comments

It has been a hard week, with motivation low, stress all around, and hot weather with some humidity (we're not used to it here in Arizona) making it hard to exercise. But Falcao came home from the hospital looking very good, and when I chan... Read more
Hard weekend, but I made it through!
Tuesday, July 15, 2008      1 comments

It's been a hard weekend. Had to take Falcao up to Phoenix to the vets office that's better equipped than any other down here. Found out the injury wasn't as bad as we thought, but by Friday still didn't know where he had injured his leg. ... Read more
Sometimes it just sneaks up on you!

I knew that I had been losing. I haven't been on a scale lately out of fear, but I knew that my dressy pants were hanging off my hips, and some of my stuff just wasn't fitting well. SO I decided to clean out my closet. WOW! There isn't m... Read more
Slow progress is still progress!

Progress has been slow, both in my recovery and my weight, but today I saw an improvement in both! Today in the gym we did ball exercises. I sat on the ball, and was able to lift one foot off the floor without falling, or even feeling like... Read more
Sometimes it's hard not to be frustrated....

Here I am, more than 8 weeks past my fall, and still having problems. I now find out that I am pushing myself too hard, and I am now falling asleep in the evenings. Another problem is that we find that I have fair balance when my eyes ar... Read more
And the beat goes on.....

I have started aerobics again, and finding that as long as it's not too hot, I tolerate it very well. If it's warm, I need to be sure to keep the water coming, and take a bit of potassium before I start. It's really good to be back at w... Read more
What does Mother's Day mean to a "Non-Mother?"
Saturday, May 10, 2008      2 comments

I face this every year. What does Sunday mean to a woman who is not a mother. No, I did not give life to any children, nor did I adopt any. But, I have mentored and nurtured other individuals and feel that these are my "children". My husband ... Read more
Still working, and hoping
Thursday, May 08, 2008      0 comments

We had a wonderful clinic last weekend. Did everything we were asked, and did a great job. I learned so much that I was really looking forward to the show in El Paso on Mother's Day weekend. Well, it is not to be. I caught a nasty virus, ... Read more
Breakthrough!

Patience works, so does a teacher that can explain things that are hard to explain. I had a lesson this week with my coach, and learned 2 small positions in my riding that "suddenly" had my horse floating and happy. Everything became easy. ... Read more
Still working on learning patience and balance
Saturday, April 05, 2008      1 comments

I am slowly learning to take it slower. I am finding out how blessed I am with friends and a husband who are willing to ferry me around to where I need to go, and watching that I don't do too much. My eating has been a challenge because... Read more
Patience, I need it NOW!

The funny thing about a concussion is that I don't feel bad. Yeah, I have a touch of a headache, but nothing really hurt, no outward signs for me to know what to do and what not to do. I learned today that the recovery is not where I wante... Read more
Ooops!

Well, the show went really well until Easter morning at 10:30. Saturday we WON the Freestyle class, and this morning we placed in a huge class. Then came Freestyle. All the trot work was the best we have ever done. Smooth, fluid, fun and... Read more
Responsibility and "getting old"
Wednesday, March 05, 2008      2 comments

I seem to have this knack for getting myself in over my head. People around me have a way of making me feel that if I don't do what they need me to do, they will "just die". This leads to periodic moments of panic when I realize I have taken on ... Read more
Stuck..... well, sorta
Monday, February 25, 2008      2 comments

I have had a wonderful weekend riding, and my coach tells me I'm riding better than ever. He has watched my weight loss and has gained the courage to tell me to keep going. His goal for me right now is 20 pounds. I am going to set a sho... Read more
