"I Can't" means "I haven't learned how yet and I'm not going to try"

My name is Pat and I am retired from a full-time sedentary job (of 30 years).

I have been a fitness enthusiast for many years and have explored (and enjoyed) many different activities, including running, treadmill/elliptical work, weight training, figure skating, sychronized swimming, and some downhill skiing.

I recently rekindled an old love for horseback riding and hope to continue with and improve that.

SparkPoints: 67,140

Fitness Minutes: 84,154

My Goals:
To maintain current weight and fitness level - actually I hope to improve the latter.

I achieved my previous goal - to have my LBD fit as well February 2011 as it did February 2010. I was determined not to be one of those women who retire and gain 40-50 pounds ... I am not.

New goal: Continue to work toward better fitness level and improve my riding skills.

My Program:
Become a better horseback rider.

4-5 cardio workouts per week

Strength training at least 3 x per week.

Personal Information:
I live in small town Ontario, Canada. I share my home with my husband, a Timneh African grey parrot, one lovebird, and 2 cockatiels.

I have 2 wonderful adult children, one awesome DIL, and one brilliant, gorgeous, funny, charming, grandson. (and yes I'm totally besotted)

Other Information:
I am an avid reader, enjoy taking courses and have recently rekindled 2 old loves - quilting and horseback riding.

I have made many friends on SP and am so very glad I stumbled across the website in March/09.

I am so glad that he is healing and getting better!! That had to have scared you! Sometimes I wish that we could bubble wrap them. I know that I worry about them hurting themselves. emoticon

Thank you Pat for the comment on my blog. She was quite the flirt. How are you and the Red Prince doing? He is just so handsome!! Are you still riding a lot? I am going to try and ride a lot more this summer. Thanks again. Chris

Thanks, Pat, for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! We have owned the property since 2006 and have worked on it little by little but hadn't done much with clearing the brush around the trees furthest from the house. I finally got all those trimmed a couple of days ago! So good to hear from you! emoticon

Hey, Pat! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog about the new RV. We are very happy with it, and hope to travel many miles in it in the future! Much of it has a lifetime guarantee for as long as we own it, so that was a deal too good to pass up! emoticon
