Everyone, meet our new mare Paige!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I have no willpower. Today an awesome deal fell into our lap that I couldn't pass up. An astoundingly beautiful chestnut overo mare by the name of Paige (by Impress Me Page) needed a good home. Sound, kid safe, hubby safe, been used as a trail horse and broodmare, bombproof and only 14 years old. Owner's daughter decided she wanted a barrel horse instead, so this mare was being used only rarely once the kid got her shiny new pony. We pretty much stole her for only $1500- the lady only sold her to us (at this price) because she knew we'd give her a lovely forever home. I still can't believe she's ours. We're back up to three mares yet again. emoticon

I may be crazy but tell me this lovely lady isn't worth all that and more!



Also sorry I haven't been on lately, we're moving again! This time we signed a lease on a property with acreage and corrals so finally no more boarding for me, all the girls will be home with us for once! SO much going on. Much love.

Oh, She is lovely. I adore horses but live in town so none for me. I am also way too big to torture any animal by getting on it's back. Do you ride? Do you have kids and family who will ride and enjoy her? I do know another lady here on SPark who has horses. I will look for her user name and get back to you with it. I bet you 2 have lots in common. Glad to see you back here on SPark. You have been missed.

    WOW!!! She is AMAZING!!! Good for you, and good for Paige!! For me, it seems like I find the best horses is when I am not looking for one. Looks like that happened to you to. Congrats on your new home.

    You are right! I approve! She is a gorgeous mare! I am excited to hear that you are moving to a place with acreage where you can keep your horses with you....there is nothing to compare with walking outside and petting your horse, or looking out the windows at them! You must be so excited! Hope to hear updates on the horses and the move! emoticon emoticon emoticon

What a day!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Walked almost 6 miles with the pups today- they would have kept going too but it was getting too late. Good to know if I ever don't want to work out all I have to say is "walk'' and the dogs will harass me until I get up. emoticon

Finally feeling more energy!

Friday, June 21, 2013

Got up before work two days in a row and did cardio! That's a big deal for me because I LOVE sleep. If given the choice to sleep or work out, I almost always am tired when I try to get up early and go back to bed. Today I woke up before my alarm even!

I'm starting to feel more energy, which is good because I have been feeling very fatigued the past year or so (since I have been dealing with my ulcerative colitis and anemia). I think regularly working out is helping.

In other news- I got a pull up bar a few months back and have been slowly working at doing a pullup. Today, I did a full one, unassisted from the ground. Woo Hoo!

I'm feeling stronger and better. I'm happy.

Day 19 update.

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

19 days in, down 5 pounds total! Woo Hoo! I am so excited.

Only 29 pounds to go to final goal.

Got my hair done today, because I needed a pick me up. It turned out great. All over blonde with highlights and lowlights. I was brown with blonde before, so I just went all over this time. What do you guys think?


We're going to Las Vegas on vacation July 7th, I'm hoping to be down to 150 by then. Only 4 more pounds in 3 weeks. I think it is doable as long as I don't have any bad eating days and keep working out every day!

Found a new walking path today.

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

So last September I moved from out in the suburbs in a quiet part of town to the north end of the next town over. I've been nervous to go out and explore because I knew every street in my old stomping grounds because I grew up there- and the new town and people are still strange to me. I've been going up to the riverbed with the dogs because there's no people, but I can't walk there too late because there isn't any lighting and I don't feel safe walking just me and the dogs after dark.

Today I decided to branch out and explore the streets around my house for the first time. I found a nice 3 mile walking loop that takes me through a nice neighborhood, circles around a drainage basin (can hear the bullfrogs chirping!) and goes right back to my house. It's well lit and I feel comfortable walking in the evening hours even if it's just me and the pups. I think I found a new evening walking path!

Sometimes it pays to break out of your comfort zone and explore a little.
