I know… talking about Summer already and it has barely gotten up above 60 degrees, but already a lot of plans are in the making! This Sunday, I will be doing my first horse show with my OWN horse. I have never done this before, and I am both excited and scared out of my mind. Daisy and I have come so far in the past couple of years (with the help of such wonderful people!) and I am really excited to show her off. On the other hand, I never quite know what is going to happen, and you know what they say about the “unknown”….
It’s a big freaky place!
And last year, I definitely wouldn’t have shown… but my confidence is slowly improving. I am much more willing to say “Oh well. Lets do it!” Instead of the whole “Are you sure? I don’t think I should…” I have to admit, I much prefer living life with the “lets do it” attitude than being afraid of what is around every corner.
Not only am I attempting horse shows this year, but I also signed up for my first 5K! I have always wanted to do a Color Run, and it turns out there is going to be a similar race while I am down in Virginia Beach visiting my brother, his beautiful wife, and the cutest little baby in the world!
I am so excited to give this a shot! I am super slow, but it doesn’t matter. I know it is going to be a blast, and it will be a great bonding experience with my sister-in-law! I have until July 20th to work on improving my speed! We shall see what happens!
This week has been off with my eating due to that wonderful TOM. Sometimes being a girl sucks, and for whatever reason, I cannot say no to cravings during this time. It just does not happen. So I have had a lot of chocolate (mostly dark) and even got Chinese food! Ooops. But I have still been fairly active — only was stuck on the couch all day on Sunday, but for the most part I have at least managed to walk 2 miles every day. I am fairly certain the scale will not be completely nice to me this week, but that’s okay because I know it is mostly water weight regardless, and next week I will kick some serious butt!
The school year is winding down fast. I found out I currently have one of the highest grades in my public speaking class! Boo yah. I actually like public speaking. I like preparing what I am going to say before I say it. Then I can trick people into thinking I am witty because in all honesty, it takes me like an hour to come up with silly remarks after the fact. I am not so good at the whole “thinking on my toes” thing. That is why I love note cards. I can fool people into believing I am articulate and interesting… and seriously, that’s an awesome feeling!
How is everyone’s week going? Do you have any “firsts” coming up? Lets hear it!
