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.

    I know that you were a big help to the people with the maiden mare and her foal! They must have been so relieved to see you coming! emoticon

    That looks like so much fun! I see that Craig Cameron is giving a demonstration and they are also having a ranch horse sale. I'll bet there are some good horses going through there! emoticon

    Oh, wow! We were there at the same time, then! We got there about 45 minutes early and had to sit through the rehearsal for the Celebration of the Mexican Cowboy, were you there for that?
    I enjoyed Chris's demonstration on the ranch horse that wanted to travel with his head up. That taught me something! I have seen him do the colt work before, but on TV. Saw him at Road to the Horse competing against Clinton and Parelli. That was a once in a lifetime trip, I really don't like the place they held it, the facility was too small for all the people, and parking out in a muddy field wasn't fun at all! Many people got stuck and had to be hauled out, but we had our front wheel drive car, so were able to get out OK.
    I may go again if it is in a big enough setting, like Will Roger's complex, emoticon
    Where do they hold the Western Heritage Event?
