I just joined spark in march and have be up and down with exercise and fitness. I am ready to start moving.
Prarie girl- I am like you, kids are either in college or going doing their own thing and my horses have been lawnornaments for too long. We are expecting a baby foal anytime now and I need to get in shape for my baby and be more active with my horses.
I am a nurse who works part time. I do have an autistic daughter that lives at home. My other two dd are in college. We board our horses now, sold our acreage but they are not far and probally get more training and activity at the stables.

Hi everybody! I am a QH lover too and new to Sparkpeople. My kids did 4-H horse shows in all classes and I was the "horse mom" who did all the moving of obstacles, running to get this, watch them do that, (you get the picture). Now they are too busy with college and other stuff to ride so it's my time to ride more. I have a husband who is "so-so" with horses. He supported the kids with their horse hobby, but not willing to watch me try to show. I am pretty content now if I just get to trail ride, which he will do with me. I want to do more all girl trail rides and be more independent with trailering. I'm tired of worrying about a flat tire. I want to be more fit so I can be a better rider.

The most important thing in life is what happens next.

Well I'm back! Just can't afford the weight watchers anymore so I will log in my food, fitness and everything in Sparkpeople. I've got a barrel race and two horses running this Saturday- maybe one horse running on Sunday at the Lucky Dog Races.

I myself- 30 day shredding and on Day 11 as of Friday. So starting level two this evening. The only day I missed working out I took my young horse to a cattle sorting and was exhausted from it! Loved it and have a new addition.

What does everyone else compete/ride in?

"Losing weight to make horses run faster!" Reasoning- the more athletic I get, the better I will ride, the less horses have to carry, the better we both do, the more money we win, and the more fun we have!

Great Job TX! I would like to give that a try as I don't just focus on one thing with my horses. I like to do all kinds of things with them to keep them and me from getting burnt out.
Hand in there QH Eventer- YOU CAN DO IT! 20 minutes of jogging didn't happen overnight and neither should losing weight. Just be persistent and it will pay off.
It's finally warming up here. It rained again so I have to wait for it to dry up so I can start back with my lounging again.

TX -- that's terrific!!! Great job!

I've not been on here for a couple of weeks... I've been so bad with my eating it's pathetic. It's like a non-stop eating machine. Gained everything back I'd lost.

Waiting on my Battlefield of the Mind book to arrive...... I've heard a lot of good things about that book. I'm hoping that if I can get my mind right, that everything else will follow.

Workout wise, I've done really well. I'm up to 20 minutes of jogging now and have kept up the 4-5 days a week workout....just have been eating so much I haven't lost anything.

Managed to get two horses worked on the lounge line the last two days. The ground finally dried up enough that it wasn't a slip and slide. I am soooo over all this mud! Can't wait for warmer weather to finally arrive!

Sounds like a good workout. I exercised the Border Collies, and did a bit of gardening. Today was real windy, supposedly getting ready for a storm. So didn't ride. Hopefully tomorrow will be calmer. So far I have walked 1 1/2 miles, and will get in more.

Diet coke with the vanilla sounds good. I'll have to try that!

Hubby decided to go to the gym last night and since the ground was soup I decided to go too. Got a mini workout in last night and then went back this morning. I got my 10 minuntes of jogging in along with the rest of my workout so I didn't feel like a complete failure! LOL

I had to stretch like crazy this morning though because I noticed I was more sore from riding night before last than I am from all the weights and jogging. I've only taken a week off from riding but I can definitely tell it even with all the work out.

Food.... still working on it! One of these days... LOL

Over all I think you are doing good. It took me a while to get my eating habits under control. I still slip now and then. I think it's called being human hehe...I didn't get to the ranch today, so going tomorrow for sure. Not sure if I will ride. It is supposed to be windy, but I still will exercise the horses. I switched over to diet coke, and add a touch of sugar free Vanilla Syrup with it. You might want to give that a try.

I wound up getting some riding in after all!! Woohoo!! I doubt I will today but that's ok because I got my fix yesterday! I brought out the big green ball and worked them around the round pen chasing it -- don't have cows and that helps get them tracking and lighter on their feet. Worked 3 and they all did great.

Food-wise yesterday I tried to eat healthy most of the day although I went over my calorie limit and had a coke. My workout this morning suffered for it I think. I didn't last 2 minutes jogging this morning before muscles were weak. So I guess I'm going to limit the coke!

Sounds like you guys got some good rides in. Awesome!!

I didn't get to ride this weekend. My mom came to visit. Did get to go watch a horse show though for a little while. Rain today and tomorrow so I'm not sure I'll get any riding in until later this week. ugh... and I need it! LOL

I was not good on food this weekend at all...

Exercise, I was very good on. I got a hard workout in Saturday morning and this morning. I'm starting to see an improvement in strength and stamina.... now if i could just get my scales to go in that direction! LOL

Howdy!!! I'm down from 143 on March 1 to 139.6 this morning! I'm getting my motivation going seeing the scale going down!

I know that it would go down a little faster if I would exercise . . . all in time!

I am planning on riding on Friday, I have a friend coming over and we are going to ride ALL afternoon! I'm excited.

Ya'll have a great day!

Food-wise I've not been perfect but I'm at least not eating as much junk and I've tried to lower the portions some as well. One day at a time I think.

Workout-wise, I got my workout in this morning. Even got in 8 whole minutes of jogging - and that was after the evil elliptical that kicks my hiney! Tomorrow I'm aiming for 10. Started off with 5 and I was suprised that I could get that much in!

Been using the weight machines too and I can tell I'm getting stronger when I go to lift feed. But I can also tell I've still got a ways to go to strengthen my mid-back and shoulder area. It's funny, part of my arms are strong as an ox and then yet when I isolate certain muscles I'm as weak as a mouse! I'll get there.

It's been raining here like crazy and snow expected towards the end of the week so I'm betting no riding for me until the weekend or later. Ugh....

Hang in there QHEventer! You CAN do it!! Just don't give up and keep trying!
I weighed in today and lost 1.8 pounds since last week. I wonder if I am starting to build muscle since I have been doing the 28 day Bootcamp on SP and if this is the reason I am only losing a pound or so a week. Oh well, CAN"T COMPLAIN too much- it is a LOSS!!

I've pretty much been riding ours bareback in the round pen for just a few moments. I've got 2-3 that I have to work after I get home at 6pm and in order to get everybody in until the time changes, it's got to be a quick session.

The good thing is that it's allowed me to spend some fun time with them and also work on things that I let slide a lot of times. That and just get them legged up more. Everybody has been doing really well though.

Diet wise.... I've been in the tank. Picked up 4 pounds in the last couple of weeks. I just can't seem to stay on the boat, especially during the weekends. I'm still mulling it over and at least thinking about it.

I have at least gotten my workouts in every day this week so far. An hour every morning and 30 minutes of that being cardio. So that's an improvement.

Not this week-end. We had rain/snow so ground was still mucky.. Today was sunny so we did make it to the ranch, and walked the horses around. The ground should dry up within a couple of days, then I can ride. Star's eye is acting up again, so I clean it up, and put ointment in it. That is a chore in itself. Must have burned some calories lol

OK team- I rode my horse today for the first time this year! (I know I should have been doing it all along but the weather, prior commitments, etc) Anyways, we had a great half hour up the closed road and back and he did well for his first time out this year too! Has anyone else been riding yet?

The SP Bootcamp is a Work Out series of about a 10 minute video that targets certain areas of the body. Each day has a different WO and then you start over again after day 7. Just look under the SparkTeam Page 28 day Bootcamp Challenge. Join up and get started! It's only 10 minutes a day! You CAN DO IT!!!

what is it?

I've been so bad for a week now. Started getting sick over the weekend and spent the first half of the week at home on the couch with a carton of ice cream in front of me half the time. No workout.

I've got an orientation though at a gym tomorrow --hubby got me a gym membership for my b-day!! So I'm hoping I can get back on track at least with the exercise. Maybe if i have to run extra when I eat extra it'll help??!! LOL

Due to weather I haven't been able to ride this week-end. Hopefully this week, if the wind isn't real bad. I did get to clean stalls, and say howdy to the horses though. Gave them carrots!

Well, the weekend and Valentines day pushed me over the edge!!! I picked up a couple of pounds. At least it's not 4-6 pounds, considering what all I ate. I finally finished all the chocolate yesterday so now maybe I can get my head on straight at least until the weekend!

I've got to get this whole weekend thing and lack of self control figured out. The workout part comes much easier. But if it's a weekend and I go to friends or we go out to eat and it's there I've got to eat it until it's all gone.

On a good note.... took 2 ponies down to get their feet done last night so they'll be getting a decent workout tonight. Now... if I can just save up to the repairs on the truck I'll be in good shape!

I am so glad that it is Friday! Our weather is supposed to warm up this weekend and I am hoping that after church on Sunday I can saddle up my horse & go for a ride! I still need to move a round pen, but I am hoping that DH & his friend gets that done Saturday!

I have got to get back into a regular riding routine, not only for me, but my horse needs it just as much! DH is threatening to take him away if I don't start riding him, lol!!

Ya'll have a great weekend!

I just realized I had a freudian (sp??) slip in my last post.... I was NOT 167.... wishful thinking! LOL.. that was 176.5!

Today I'm back down to 172.5... I just wonder how many times I'm going to see that number before I move further down the scale? The weekend is drawing near and that's the worst time for me! I can gain 4-5 pounds in a weekend and it takes all week to lose it again!

Truck is still torn apart so I'm not hopeful to hit the barrel race this weekend One of the reasons I hate setting goals because I hate disappointments like crazy. Sigh...

Did not get my workout in this morning. Slept in. On a good note I have managed to stay on track with food for today. One day at a time I suppose.

It is hard!! I agree with you. But, it's worth it to take care of ourselves......keep it up!!!

I'm working like crazy, it's my busy time of the year, so not much besides work and sleep and some family time. Spring is coming though!! I'll get some good riding in then!

I couldn't resist the temptation to step on the scales this morning..... I should have because now I'm completely disgusted.... back up to 167.5! And then got here to work and someone had brought in gourmet cookies and I had to eat the last two..... I got my workout in but I wasn't into it this morning so it wasn't as intense.

Hopefully I'll get in some riding this evening when I get home if its dry enough. Did manage to get one of my horses trimmed on Saturday and I'm still sore from that!

This is hard!

It was pretty nice here all weekend, I didn't get to ride though! I had to work on fence on Saturday to move my brood mares to a new pasture on Sunday! Had to move them three at a time, so that took a while!

I hope the upcoming weekend is nice so I can get in some saddle time!

I also won't exercise at home if DH is there, I don't want him to watch me!

Good job!!

I wasn't good at all last night. I pigged out unmercifully.... Back on track though today and planning on getting some writing and riding in today as I have the day off today. Did get my workout in today and planning on trimming some feet so I'm sure I'll be well exercised by the end of the day... not sure if that will burn off last night though!!

I haven't done too bad this weekend. I lost a pound and a half this past week and used yesterday as my cheat day as I had a kids Bday party to attend. I sure made up for it today though~We cut firewood, I drank 8 glasses of water, ate 50 calories under my calorie limit (1200-1500) AND just got home from an Hour of Zumba class! I have a measurement day on Friday with my weigh in, so I am pretty curious as to how that will turn out. Hows everybody else doing?

Hubby finally went back to work this morning so I got my workout in --first time this week! Felt good!!!
I got on the scales and I'm down another pound and half since yesterday. It feels good to be making some progress.
Got the day off --- getting some writing done and some riding later today!

I missed the barrel race on Saturday due to being sick as a dawg! Missed the whole warm weather thing all weekend and it had been the warmest day of winter I believe. I hate it! And now it's rain and then it's supposed to turn back very cold. I guess we could be in a blizzard though so I can't complain too much!

I was going to workout this morning because I'm feeling better but hubby is home sick and I can't quite workout with him watching me on the couch. So much for that plan too!

On a good note, I had gained 2 pounds yesterday but it's back off as of today and I'm staying on track with my food.

Everybody stay warm!

It is 17 here in East Texas this morning, yet is feels like 3! After me wearing shorts to go grocery shopping on Saturday, I am bundled up today! This weather SUCKS to say the least!

Team Sorting, Barrel racing, fun, fun, fun! I tend to lean to the team sorting now more than the barrel racing, my husband hated my barrel horse so I sold him. I now have a great cow horse. We love to team sort, down here we call is feed lot sorting!

I am also getting into the competitive (sp? too early in the morn.) trail challenges, you can check it out at www.actha.us . They are good to get your horses mind on something different! The first one I went to, I rec'd 11th place out of 30 riders! I won't go to another one until March!

Ya'll have a great day & stay warm!

Hey guys!
I've been trying to start getting some work in on mine the last couple of weeks but it's not been near as consistent as I'd like and it's only walk/jog because of the mud but I guess it's better than nothing but I keep focusing on how much training I need to get in... everything in time I guess!

Mine have been off since early December due to an accident my horse and I had chasing a cow during practice that resulted in me getting a separated shoulder. OUCH! So I'm glad to be getting in some practice.

There's a barrel race this weekend that I'd like to haul to just to school. Lord knows they need it! LOL

We'll all be glad when the weather breaks!

Boy, I wish it was going to be nice here. Actually, the snow stopped, we got about 8 or so inches overnight. Hubby is still snow blowing the driveway so we can get out later. Thankfully I can work at home, since I have so much to do.

Really looking forward to ridng this weekend!!!

We're having more snow again here in NJ. I haven't ridden in almost two weeks. I'm supposed to go on Saturday, so I'm hopeful!! Maybe it will stop snowing and being so cold!!

Hang in there everyone....spring will arrive sometime soon.

Time to brace for another cold front here in East Texas! I'm not sure what has happened to the semi-warm winters here in Texas. I sure that Spring arrives soon!!! Or at least some weather warm enough to saddle up and get in a ride or two a week!

Ya'll have a great day!

Thanks! I still have the headache that I have had since Monday but I'm going riding anyway. I'm hopeful some fresh air and exercise will get rid of it!

How's everyone doing today? I'm super busy with work, then off to the barn for a lesson this evening.

Have a great day!!

Glad you re=scheduled. Then your ride will be so much more relaxing. Well, my headache is gone, but somehow I pulled a muscle in my back. So I didn't do much today. I think it is better though. I will go out and see the horses tomorrow just to give them attention, apples, carrots etc.

Thanks for asking! I actually re-scheduled for Wednesday. I just couldn't bear to get home after 8 pm last night which is what time I would have gotten home if I had had the lesson at 6:30. I typically go to bed about 8:30, lights out at 9 as I am usually up around 4:45. Re-scheduling put me in a much better mood! Wednesday is a normal riding day for me too, so it should be better than Monday, which is not a normal riding day.

The headache from yesterday is gone too, so that's good. Maybe some little headachey thing is going around?! Hope yours is gone too.
