Tuff, my orphaned AQHA foal at 10 days old, May 2011.

Getting Going on Making the Golden Years Great!

I'm Susan - a wife, mother of three, first time grandmother, and ready to be fit! I live out in the country with my husband, dog and two horses, and enjoy gardening, riding and walking. It's time to make my health a priority!

"You don't get what you want, you get what you work for." It's time to do the work!

I've completed my first challenge, Winter 5%, and exceeded my goal.

My Goals:
Overall Goals:

Making healthy choices every day, and getting back on track when I misstep are my main goals.

Short term goal:

Weigh 173, which will officially lower my BMI to "over" instead of "obese!"

I don't consider myself to be on a diet, because diets have an end, and living a healthy lifestyle needs to continue until Jesus calls me home!

My Program:
Focusing on lots of vegetables, fruits, low fat proteins, whole and complex grains and little to no sugar. My exercise program includes treadmill workouts, exercise videos, beginning strength training (besides lifting 50 pound bags of feed and my 35 pound grandson) gardening, and horses (care and riding).

Personal Information:
I have lived in beautiful North Georgia since I was a teenager. My husband, Steve, and I live on 20 rural acres where I am blessed to be able to do the things I love - garden, have horses, walk and enjoy the country!
We have raised two daughters and one son, all who still live fairly close by. Now that I am retired, I can spend more time with my grandson.

Thanks for reading my blog and commenting, and thanks for the prayers for the people of Comanche! I know, I was raised in Michigan where it was against the law for individuals to have fireworks. I never knew till I moved to Texas that private citizens could even have fireworks!

Thank you for your kind and encouraging comments on my blog. I'm glad that you enjoyed what I wrote, and I'm honored that Chris thought so well of it that she recommended it to you.

If you've raised horses, you could be successful with a mustang. A lot of times adoption centers have foals that have been orphaned or were born in a holding facility, and when they grow up they face the possibility of slaughter just like the wild-caught ones. So if you've ever thought of adopting one, think about it some more...
