Hi there. I'm back after a long hiatus and have even more weight to lose now.

I did personal training last year and it worked great as far as my feeling better. At least until my trainer's schedule changed and I started going on back to back days which was not helpful for me. However it did let me know I can feel better if I stay at this!

Oh one good thing, in the past year I've also managed to pretty much kick the soda habit. I may have one when out to eat if it's a place I am unsure about the options. Or very rarely for a headache at work when nothing else works(ironic how this seems to work). I really hate water so this is a big deal. Mostly I'm drinking lower calorie drinks and some sweet tea or lemonade.

I'm also eating out somewhat less.

I'm back to trying Spark now and hoping I can get myself back on track.

Keeping my food journal and trying to exercise a bit when I come home. So far the exercising is really hard for me to stay committed to.

    Hi, Thanks for the good wishes! We are at home today, going to church here in a bit, having our Thanksgiving Dinner there with our church family. I hope to get some time with Peanut this afternoon, once we get the flatbed trailer loaded up again with stuff from here. We have all the farm stuff and tools to move as well as the household goods. Every trip is nearly 200 miles round trip so no small distance. The furniture and household goods we are keeping will have to go into storage. Lots of work........... emoticon

    Wow! I AM impressed with your new colt's pedigree! He is an own grandson of Peppy San Badger? (Little Peppy) There aren't too many weanling foals around that can claim that! Smart Little Lena in the background doesn't hurt either.
    So glad that you are going to have more time to spend on Spark! I look forward to hearing from you more often! Will keep you updated on my experiences with "Peanut!". emoticon

    Glad you got the colt if you just adore his sire! How is he bred? My new horse is cutting bred, with Hollywood, Doc Bar, and Poco Tivio bloodlines plus some Hancock breeding on the bottom. I don't think I could stay on a cutting horse either! Especially now that my balance doesn't seem to be what it used to be.

    Have fun with him while you have him. That's just the way it goes at work sometimes! Just when you start something new, life gets busier! Good luck and keep in touch!! emoticon
