On Being Selfish
Sunday, April 26, 2009      2 comments

How many of us have gotten up in the morning and realized that what we WANTED to do was in grave danger of being superceded by the demands of those around us. Today is one of those days for me. I want to ride Falcao and reinforce the stuff... Read more
Shop Hop Challenge is over, now to move on to the next thing!
Wednesday, April 22, 2009      1 comments

The final day of the shop hop was good. The bad part was all the driving involved, which meant that we didn't get much exercise except for strolling around the shops. I did take time to walk more briskly around some of the shops before settlin... Read more

The great thing about today is that my eating was on target calorie wise. I've been straddling the line both ways on my range for the past 2 weeks. I also had a great ride on Falcao. We found an interim saddle that is more comfortable for... Read more

I love watching all the dressage I can get my hands on. Today is the start of the World Cup of Dressage, and it was shown on the web. I quickly finished with Falcao and flew home to watch. I was so glad I could do that. I saw some amazing ri... Read more

Just thought I'd pop on long enough to keep everyone up to date. I woke up this morning not feeling 100%. I don't think I'm really sick, but I'm tired and a bit of a queezy stomach. I have a session with my trainer at noon, and a doctor's... Read more
The Candy weekend is OVER!

In some ways I am happy that the Easter weekend is finally over. Despite my best intentions and requests, candy found its way back into the house this weekend. First came the Jordan Almonds. Not bad and some nutrition. Luckily, too, they ar... Read more

Last night I went out to the barn to give Falcao a stretching workout, only to find that he wasn't moving right. Nothing I could put my hand on, but going right he looked, well, stiff. So I just did enough with him to stretch him a bit and let... Read more

After a nice breakfast, going out to the barn and giving the horses their breakfast, I saddled up Falcao and went out to warm up for my first class. I was a little stiff this morning and had some trouble finding my position, but by the end of w... Read more

Last night we splurged and ate at a fancy Italian restaurant. I chose a ravioli mix, and had a salad. Not too bad on calories, and I didn't have to worry too much since I had missed lunch, and still exercised off 1200 calories at the barn and ... Read more

Yesterday afternoons was one of those days. It would have been sooo easy to slink into the kitchen, crawl into the cabinet and just eat. It all started in the morning when I took my truck in to be repaired because it didn't seem to have th... Read more

This has been an interesting day. I woke up really tired, but I had a full day ahead of me. I had breakfast and got ready for the cleaning lady, which meant picking up the clutter. Then I headed off to the barn for a lesson with heather. ... Read more

Sunday, March 29, 2009      2 comments

I am sitting here in my living room listening to the wind ring my wind chimes and roar through my chimney. The day didn't start that way, but it's really windy now. It's nice to be inside! This week has been a whirlwind of its own. My mo... Read more

This is the weekend when my mother, who is disabled is visiting us for a few days. Don't get me wrong, in some ways I'm really looking forward to it. I don't get to see her often and It'll be good to spend time with her. I already ahve pl... Read more
