The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a woman!

I live in northern Wisconsin, and am down to 2 backyard horses that I share with my husband. He rarely rides, and this year my regular riding has turned into irregular riding due partly to very strange weather and partly to some minor injuries.

I've recently turned 65 and for some reason it's been hard for me and have gained back all the weight lost previously using Spark People.

My husband has retired and has taken over the daily "horsekeeping" duties, leaving me feeling somewhat diminished.

I'd taken time away from SP, but decided to come back, start logging in again and work to improve my health.

Thank you so much for sending the goodie and for continuing to cheer me on even though I have been MIA for months. I have managed to move my agency to a new location, but finances at work continue to be tough and stressful. Things have been up and down at home as my husband had a cardiac stent put in. He is fine now, but it was worrisome. I am exercising regularly but not tracking food. My weight has been stuck at the same place. At least I haven't gained! I haven't been giving time to SP or my online friends. Sorry! Anyway, I appreciate your continued support. Maybe I'll find my way back to more regular posting at some point. emoticon

Thank you so much for all the goodies and good wishes! I'm keeping up the fitness minutes by doing 10 mins of step-ups every morning, plus 90 mins lawn mowing every week, plus gardening whenever weather permits and I have time, plus riding out for about 90 mins (sometimes more) four or five times a week. It soon adds up! But the downside is that the pounds are slowly but surely creeping back on, despite all the exercise, and I think I'm going to have to start talking strictly to myself again in the near future...

Hi there. I just noticed the two gifts that you put on my page. Thanks so much. I am not a horse owner myself but have always loved them and used to ride whenever I could. I hope that you are doing well and succeeding at reaching your goals. Have a Great Day and I'll check in again. emoticon
