My first English Riding Lesson

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Today at 9:30 am I am going to take my first English riding lesson. I am very nervous as I heard she is a very good instructor, but tough.
I am going in at a beginner level (which I am) so I am praying I can do this as well as the 10 year old girl that is taking them and doing so well.
Wish me luck.

    I hope YOU felt like it went well.
Remember everyone has to learn HOW to do each new task they undertake. AND, we each start from a different point and will arrive at a different destination. Those destinations may be very close to each other but will have some variation because we are each and every one of us unique to ourselves. We are the product of our unique experiences, and our unique bodies. End of lecture.

Hope most of all that you had a really good time and want to go back for more of the same!!
It has been a long time since I have been on a horse. Gave mine up 18 years ago, another lifetime.

Today's joke

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

An 80 year old man is having his annual checkup at his doctor's office. He says to the doctor, "I've never felt better in my whole life. In fact, I have a 20 year old bride who's pregnant and having my child. What do you think of that!!

The doctor thinks for a second and then says, "Let me tell you a story. I know this guy who's an avid hunter. He never misses a hunting season. But one day he's in a hurry to go hunting and accidentally grabs his umbrella instead of his rifle.

So he's in the woods and suddenly a giant grizzly bear appears out of nowhere. He raises his umbrella, points at the bear, squeezes the handle and the bear drops dead in front of him. What do you think of that?"

The old man says, "That's impossible. Someone else must have shot that bear!"

" Exactly " says the doctor.

What is Celibacy?

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by circumstances.

While attending a Marriage Weekend, Frank and his wife Ann listened to the instructor declare, "It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.";

He then addressed the men. "Can you name and describe your wife's favorite flower?";
Frank leaned over, touched Ann's arm gently, and whispered, "Gold
Medal-All Purpose, isn't it?"

And thus began Frank's life of celibacy.

I had to post this. Loved it. emoticon

Happy April 1st

Monday, April 01, 2013

Well, I made it 40 days no chips or fries but I gained weight BECAUSE I didn't exercise like I should have and ate too much junk.
I replaced junk for the stuff I gave up (which they were no good for me anyway) but I believe my biggest temptatio (other han fries and chips) is cheese,namely pizza.
I want to go vegan,and I do great except for the cheese pizza and anything cheesey.
I guess I actually have a willpower issue.
This month I am going to try and rid myself of the cheese monster I created for myself.
I also hope to not go back to the chips and fries.
I guess we will have to find the willpower that I know is there since I did quit smoking 15 or so years ago.(2 packs a day) Blech,ugly,stinky habit.
Here's to April and a clean slate.

How about making your own chips in the oven with sweet potatoes and spray or fries. You can also do it with the white potatoes as well. DON'T Beat Yourself Up! One Day At A Time One Step At A time! emoticon

    Yes, it is difficult to stay away from the foods that we love. We also used the same foods to comfort us. I am hoping that you will have success as you find other foods to satisfy your cravings.

    Hey, if you can give up chips & fries...you can do something about the cheese. Actually, have you thought about getting your cheese fix by snacking on just cheese (minus the pizza) - maybe some string cheese, or laughing cow light cheese? Who knows, maybe you could even smear some on (gasp) a celery stick?!?

Oh, and I feel you on the pizza. It's one of my personal downfalls emoticon

    emoticon emoticon You can do it...I admire you for even thinking about giving up cheese...I do mainly low carb, so, I do eat cheese. Of course, I used to think I couldn't go a day without chocolate, but, I've discovered that I can. Our WANT TO & WHY has to be strong enough for us to overcome our temptations.

Hang in there...one day at a time!

    You've taken the first step by identifying the problem. One of my colleagues was told to give up cheese by her doctor. It was her only food vice, but it badly affected her health.

    When I get to maintenance (?) :) I want to be able to eat what I love. So with chocolate I changed to dark as it is better for you...no really...and went from a block of milk choc to a row of dark and weaned down to a piece every day, then every two, then once a week and now every 2 weeks and sometimes none for weeks.

But when i do have some, I keep it in my mouth for ages savouring it.

Pizza is really high in cals but you could still get the taste with a pita bread or flat bread and toppings, add some leaves on top when its cooked and enjoy. This way you have made a great leap toward your goals and don't really miss out on what you love. The extra spinach fresh or rocket will fill you up too.

Then when you get it right -the balance-- then have a smaller and smaller slice till you get the 'hit' but also the reward!!!

No harm in giving it a try. emoticon

    I know all about pizza. I scrape all the goodies off the top, and leave the crust. Makes me feel better without all that doughy yeast. Good luck without cheese; I know I couldn't do it. emoticon emoticon
