New dress, new "do". I had forgotten how much natural curl I have.





Texas buckle and t-shirt #1





Riding my off-track race horse bareback. I never thought I'd see the day. He's such a good boy!



I have 55 pics in my gallery

"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: 67,224

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, thanks for reading and commiserating with me.....of course we've always known this is something that we will do for the rest of our lives and at least we're not alone. I love hearing that you are still very actively enjoying your horsemanship and I trust you've also had some fun grandma moments at the lake as well. Enjoy and keep up the effort...it's worth it! Love that pic of the black and white dress and the "do".

Glad to hear that Red is healed! Yes, it is true that horses heal up quickly. We are supposed to have sunshine tomorrow, and then, according to my Weather Bug app, it is supposed to rain all through next week! Wow, this surely is more rain than we have seen here in MANY years!

I think you are trying to say McKinney, Texas, which is kind of a northern suburb of Dallas, and in emoticon one of the fastest growing counties in the whole country.
