I didn't eat the fair food.

My younger daughter is in 4-H and we've been at the county fair all week. I'll admit I'm proud of myself. I had some popcorn one day, but that's it! I resisted all the lovely fair smells and stuck to the snacks that I brought with me. In the... Read more

Thank you SparkFriends for all the support! I never thought that "on-line" support would be so helpful and mean so much to me. You all are ... Read more
It's been tough

I'm gearing up for Monday. My oldest daughter is going to see a counselor. We found out at her school physical that she has an eating disorder. Boy was that hard to say! She severely restricts her calories, I've seen that, and she som... Read more
Good day

My daughter did well today. She did receive a nice black eye where her face hit her horse's head during the pole bending race. Neither flinched and they finished up the rest of the day's events. I did well with my eating. I had most of... Read more
Day at the fair.
Saturday, July 28, 2012      4 comments

My daughter was in the horse show at the fair. Today was all the "pleasure" events. Tomorrow is the speed. It was a good day overall and I stayed within my calorie range, although I did eat a hot dog, chips, and a croissant. I also walked a ... Read more
Walking with weights
Thursday, July 26, 2012      2 comments

I found a new way to challenge my body in this heat. I started using 2 lbs. wrist/ankle weights. I start with them on my wrists and concentrate on working my biceps and triceps. When I start feeling my arms getting fatigued, I switch to my an... Read more
Running on empty...

I'm not sure if it's the morning workouts, the heat, the running kids around, etc., but I am tired! I still got up and walked this morning. I can't seem to not do it! :) I'm just feeling a little sluggish. Oh well, maybe a nap will help.... Read more

A year ago today my first soul mate died. Tequila was with me for over 30 years and she knew all my secrets. She was with me through the teenage years, college, she picked my husband, taught all four of my kids to ride, and was with me through... Read more
Doctor's today

Today I took my two daughters to the doctor for their school physicals. My oldest, 17, plays select soccer and is very muscular and on the shorter side. She can hold her own against much bigger opponents. My younger daughter, 15 1/2, is talle... Read more
Off and running (errands)

I changed it up this morning and jumped rope for 5 minutes, went on a 20 minute walk with the dogs and jumped rope for 5 minutes. I'm hoping it will rev up my metabolism. I was amazed that 5 minutes of jumping rope would make me feel muscles t... Read more
Had my cake and ate it too.

Yesterday was my oldest son's 14th birthday. I had pizza, a small piece of cake and some ice cream. I was only 2/10ths of a pound higher this morning. This tells me that I ate correctly and that I can indulge within reason. I went walk/r... Read more
I hate to run!

I hate to run. I have a cousin that told me that she can't think of anything she'd rather do then run. I told her she is CRAZY! Maybe hate is a little strong, but I strongly dislike running. There are many things that I can think of that I'd ... Read more
Homemade fish tacos
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      1 comments

My husband made homemade fish tacos and cilantro rice for dinner. It consisted of corn tortilla, grilled talapia, coleslaw, and a little guacamole. The cilantro rice had black beans on top so a very "good" meal for me. The oldest two tried th... Read more

My daughter did pretty well at her horse show and I did get in plenty of walking...it was hot! It is so disappointing how others act/treat people. We saw "friends" from our old barn, but things have definitely changed. It's a long story and n... Read more
Getting ready for an early day tomorrow.
Friday, July 13, 2012      3 comments

My daughter has a horse show tomorrow. We have to be on the road at 5:00 A.M. I don't think I'll get my morning walk/run in. I guess I'll shot for tomorrow evening. However, I've been "very good" with my workouts, so if I miss one I won't fee... Read more
