At last, a Saturday at home…now I am not complaining, I love to hit the road in Driving Ms. Daisy but there is nothing like a whole weekend to yourself. I would like to say….’doing nothing’ but that’s not going to be the case.
Next Wednesday, I will be heading to the Selkirk's for a horse trip. (Nope, Ms. D, stays home.) Yep, me on a horse, can you picture it? So I will be packing, sorting, repacking and cleaning this weekend. I’ve only been on a horse about three times in my life, so this is a real adventure. I don’t have a bucket list but every once in awhile, opportunities come along….so I just jump in. The idea of riding a horse on mountain trails sounds so romantic…but I am sure it will turn out more like the movie ‘City Slickers’…..which I am. I even went out and got a cowboy hat, some old vintage cowboy boots and some slick new riding jeans (two sizes smaller!!!)
I’ve been working out with a trainer, since the end of June. Building some strength…. to pull myself up on that horse….heheee. I also walked a lot, until I hurt my back. I just keep plugging away and I have lost about 25 lbs., this go round but it’s the inches that are amazing me. I am down 1-2 sizes! I look down at myself and wonder who that body belongs to…..it’s been a long time.
I found inspiration over at Tales From the Coop Keeper, Jayme, is just a kick in the pants and sometimes…the butt. She has been on a weight loss journey and I have been ‘eating up’ every word. In the beginning, I just read and marveled at her strength and determination….now, I am one of the winners too! Stop over to her blog for a few laughs…..she a dear.
Here is a wonderful post from Jamie’s blog…here …it’s fabulous.
