To Be The Best "Me" I Can Be.

If you've read this far lol here is some more about me:

Being a mom to 7 children (some grown) has been great but, unfortunately, I have neglected to keep myself physically fit and have put on extra pounds by snacking when the kids snack. Time to change that and develop some good habits and a healthier life style.

Update: I've lost a total of 20 lbs (3 of them before SP) although you might not be able to tell in the pics at left. Most of it was lost in my waist and bottom which was my biggest problems. Still need to firm up and slim down some more. Feeling MUCH MUCH better!!!

update: 10-11-12-- gained back 7 of those lost pounds. I'm blaming it on repeated knee injury but the reality is too much ice cream.
Back to healthy eating and keep moving!

update 10-20-13-- finding it a challenge to make the changes I know I need to make - permanent changes. Once more I'll start again.

My Goals:
I would like to lose 20 lbs and regain my flexibility.
Horseback riding is one of my favorite activities and my weight stiff hips makes it uncomfortable. Also just eating healthier and keeping fit is important - I don't want to feel older than I am.

update June 2014- can't really ride much anymore I find my leg goes numb. But I still enjoy my girls anyway and do ride occasionally -- just not very long.


My Program:
Swimming is my new exercise since my knees won't allow a lot of walking or jogging. So the new goal is 2 or 3 days a week (depending on life circumstances) for at least half an hour.

Cutting unhealthy calories out of my diet tracking on Sparkpeople has helped with this tremendously.



Personal Information:
I live in Michigan with my husband and children and two horses, 3 cats, 1 dog, 2 rabbits .

Other Information:
Besides horseback riding I enjoy kayaking, camping, gardening, reading and just spending quiet time in our woods.

Love to talk horsey. I rode today and bugs were so bad we tore around like we were being chased by bad guys. Fun and thrilling. How is your riding and waist line coming along? emoticon

Thanks for dropping by my page,

Holly

Hi Margaret,
Nice to hear about your horse and your riding. I am an advanced intermediate to experienced rider. My horse (leased) is not much of a gaited horse but she does give me a rather smooth ride. In the past I have owned two horses, one thoroughbred and one morgan/saddlebred cross.They do get under your skin in a good way. Stay safe!

Hope your 4th holiday is nice.

Will talk again later, Holly
