End of 2011

So this was suppose to be a riding blog I suppose. I never really stuck to that. I'm sick of my riding. Last night was horrible. The stress at my barn is just too high. I just don't want to be around some people and I can't let go of the tension when I ride. I can't even connect my horse. I mean there would be no chance at a decent intro level ride. How pathetic is that?

So as we move into 2012 I think I may turn this into a weight loss or weight maintenance blog. Or maybe just a catch all blog. Does a blog really need to have a theme? I guess not.

This past year I lost quite a bit of weight. Most people don't know how I did it. And I'm not 100% sure I'm ready to share that. I am maintaining relatively well. Till the holidays hit. Ouch. I'm 3-4 lbs above where I like to be. My fat % monitor is holding steady. And I've increased the workouts (I'm SORE). So maybe it's not that bad, but I'm stressed about it. Today is a yogurt day to try and correct this. I have another holiday celebration on Sunday. And in just over 2 weeks we leave for Cancun. I'd like to be below my happy weight when we leave. So I can enjoy the food and drinks!

As we move into 2012 I have a lot of goals in mind. More than I've ever had before. Weight loss is at the top. Or at least loss of inches. I'm at the point where I could gain weight due to muscle and toning. Also at the top of the list is being more frugal. That might be really hard for me. I need to save more money. I want a house damn it! So I need to stop spending money so easily. Also I want to make a decision about what to do with my riding. I'm not happy with the status quo. (Why is chrome telling me that is spelled wrong? Google says that is correct.) *shrug* Anyways, one more thing on the immediate to do list is to make an appointment with an orthopedist about my hip. It's been hurting me a lot lately. Let's see if I can at least get that done in January.

I hope everyone has a great New Year's. I don't really celebrate this holiday. It annoys me. And I think I'm more depressed about all these challenging goals I have this year to even think about partying. So I'll probably bring in the New Year in my favorite way - sleeping. Might as well start the New Year out doing what I love. :)
