"I Can't" means "I haven't learned how yet and I'm not going to try"

My name is Pat and I am retired from a full-time sedentary job (of 30 years).

I have been a fitness enthusiast for many years and have explored (and enjoyed) many different activities, including running, treadmill/elliptical work, weight training, figure skating, sychronized swimming, and some downhill skiing.

I recently rekindled an old love for horseback riding and hope to continue with and improve that.

SparkPoints: 66,760

Fitness Minutes: 84,154

My Goals:
To maintain current weight and fitness level - actually I hope to improve the latter.

I achieved my previous goal - to have my LBD fit as well February 2011 as it did February 2010. I was determined not to be one of those women who retire and gain 40-50 pounds ... I am not.

New goal: Continue to work toward better fitness level and improve my riding skills.

My Program:
Become a better horseback rider.

4-5 cardio workouts per week

Strength training at least 3 x per week.

Personal Information:
I live in small town Ontario, Canada. I share my home with my husband, a Timneh African grey parrot, one lovebird, and 2 cockatiels.

I have 2 wonderful adult children, one awesome DIL, and one brilliant, gorgeous, funny, charming, grandson. (and yes I'm totally besotted)

Other Information:
I am an avid reader, enjoy taking courses and have recently rekindled 2 old loves - quilting and horseback riding.

I have made many friends on SP and am so very glad I stumbled across the website in March/09.

Pat, I remember you had done this and had a wonderful time....as did we. I just got home, the girls tired me out...believe it or not, I'm talked out! LOL One of the girls told me she had told someone the day before that she was getting ready for a reunion of sorts and when queried if it was family or old classmates, she really shocked the person by saying it was a group of friends who had mostly never met! LOL Such a gift!

You've heard the old saying that when you bring something into the house something should be taken out. We have definitely NOT been doing that! We have lived in this same house for 37 years. The STUFF accumulated is mind boggling. Thanks for you support and empathy!

It is so hard when we become so attached to our pets. I remember having to put Punkin down. It was very hard but I knew that she was suffering. Didn't want that. Just to let you know.....you are missed!! Come see us.

Thanks, Pat! We are trying hard to get this house all put together! There is so much to do. I fear that DH will tire out before it is all done. We got our storage building delivered today. It lacked 4 inches of fitting under our archway over the drive on the truck, so he unloaded it at the end of the driveway and "drove it up" the driveway and to the spot where it was going. Amazing! emoticon
