Hello Sparkers! (Day 1)
Monday, October 07, 2013
Yup I had to restart my day count! I have definitely fallen away from my good habits. I did get into school, I am still leasing King Arthur, and I work full-time. Healthy lifestyle went to the bottom of my list. I am sure I've gained all the weight back... I have not stepped on the scale in months. I'm starting to see the weight in my face again. I'm not upset. It is what it is. I changed my normal routine so the rest suffered. But I want to get back to caring about myself. It isn't going to be much. My routine just doesn't allow for much down time and since I've started school I am just sooo mentally exhausted. But I need to check back in here to get back to the me I know I can be. Soooo here's my plan:
- Eat more FRUIT! Start snacking on fruit when I'm hungry.
- Get 1 hour of exercise unrelated to horses.
That's it. Right now I work 40 hrs a week, spend 3 hours commuting each day, 7 hours of classes a week, 7 hours of homework a week, 6 hours of horses a week. I am tired!!!! I have a plan to get back into working out when school is over in the beginning of December. I figure 90 minutes riding a week plus one hour of another activity will be okay when school is in session. When school is out I want to up it to 90 minutes of riding and 3 hours a week of another activity. I also want to start cooking again, I think once I add in the hour of exercise I can figure out how to fit in the cooking/shopping time.
Gosh I hadn't realized it had been so long. No one to blame but myself, and I'm not playing the blame game. I love me I love who I am and I am bettering myself. I just have to learn to balance my life. I won't be able to blog much but I need to track my progress.
I am still leasing Arthur. We are doing great together! We are finally getting on the same page and we have been jumping 2'6 regularly. I am really working on us as a team I want to reach the 3'0 mark!!!
Other horsey news:
I found an awesome trail riding barn near me. And me and my friends went to check it out. It was loads of fun... I will definitely be going again! (I'm the one it the black shirt.... riding a horse named Gunner.)
