Monday Weigh-In and Pony Birthdays!


Despite not making the best choices this weekend such as indulging in delicious alcoholic beverages…a little too much… (do you know there is a Gummy Bear Vodka?! Seriously, why have I not know this before?!), I have lost another 2 pounds. I have lost 4 pounds since I have gotten back from vacation. My weight? 220 even. I am so close to getting into the teens… it is almost unbearable. I cannot wait! I am only three pounds away to losing 50! 50 pounds! I will be halfway to my goal for the year at that point! Which is perfect since we are almost half way through the year… ugh. Kinda crazy to think that in a couple weeks it is going to be June! Where has the time gone? So much has changed this year that it feels like it has been a really long year but also a very short time. Does that make sense to anyone? Am I talking crazy again? Oh well! Anyway, I am thinking once I hit that 50 pound loss… I may do some sort of give away. Would people be interested in entering? I am thinking either Jillian Michael’s Unlimited, or one of her work-out DVDs, or… The Happiness Project. All things that have been motivational for me as I have lost weight! So I would love to hear your feedback on that! I really would hate to have some sort of give-away and then no one enters! :/ I mean I am sure someone would enter, but is definitely more fun when other people participate!

Today was also my wonderful horse’s birthday! She turned 8 years old. We celebrated by going on a nice ride (ok, well I celebrated that more than she did), and then indulging in some tall, very green grass. Yum! Oh and lots of cookies! She loves her treats. She has helped me through so much and has really helped with building up my confidence. And now, you can stare at her wonderfulness! Because I went a little camera crazy and just kept snapping pictures!

I love this one! Even though she seems totally unimpressed by her fly bonnet! But keeps it the bugs out of her face and ears. I know deep down she appreciates it!

She also got a new halter for her birthday! I love it when she sticks out her tongue.














Nom Nom Nom! She looks so beautiful in the sunlight!


So that is Daisy! My now 8 year old Standardbred. Give her a round of applause for sticking with me, her crazy mom, for the past 2 years! Ha. She loves that have lost weight and can do more with her, though. She will definitely be the reason that I will not gain any of the weight back.

Also, I wanted to direct everyone to this awesome blog: HealthDemystified. He has a lot of interesting ideas and really addresses some important issues when it comes to weight loss. One of his most recent posts is about emotional eating, which I think is a super biggie! It is one I still indulge in from time to time. He is also thinking about offering a free weight loss program? at least information once he gets organized! It sounds really cool! And he is just an awesome nice guy! So I definitely think you should hop, skip, jog, crabwalk yourself over there and take a look around!

Anyway, it is Monday so I should address some weekly goals… so this is what I am thinking:

1. I want to horseback ride at least 4 – 5 times this week (it is such a good work out. I am feeling it in my legs. I have gotten so out of shape with that! But I am glad to be back in the saddle).

2. Run 5k twice this week.

3. Do my Jillian Michael’s Work out DVD at least 3 times this week (I haven’t done one of her workouts for over 2 weeks now. Not since I left for vacation. Ooops!)

Those are my 3 main goals! Lets hope I can do it!

What are your goals for this week?! Also, let me know what you think about the giveaway idea!

  1. 3 goals for the week: Run 5 miles, refrain from eating too much of my son’s birthday cake and not procrastinate studying my patho chapters.

    I like the giveaway idea. What a fun way to celebrate loosing those last few pounds! Good luck getting them off!

    • I like those goals! I think the hardest will probably be the cake and studying? lol I used to put the pro in procrastination! :p especially when the weather is nice… ugh. Don’t feel like doing anything but being outdoors!

      And thanks! I think it would be nice! And maybe motivate some others with what motivated me! =D I mean 50 pounds is a pretty big deal… haha

  2. Congrats on almost reaching 50 pounds! I know you can do it! Happy birthday to Daisy :). I can’t wait until we have some land so I can provide a horse a home!!

    • Thank you!! =D and awwah! I can’t wait to have her in my own backyard some day… right now I board her at a local stable. But horses are so much fun! There is just something about them… their wildness but also their innocence? I dunno. I don’t think I will ever cease to be amazed by them.

  3. I just started a “Belly baster” and can’t eat meat for 3 days. I just want to get through that. And I think the giveaway idea is a good idea. Go for it.

    • What exactly is “Belly baster?” I couldn’t do that… I wish you the best of luck. I would die. haha Ok, maybe not die… but I would suffer from meat withdrawals. Is that bad? haha But that is a good goal : Stay alive. :p You can do it!
