Oh well, 1 lb of that 4 is gone now that I'm back on track, to hopefully I can keep it up and realize that the holidays are just terrible for diets but they are over now haha!
Chin up! I get the impression with how quiet we've gone on this thread that a few of us have well fallen off the rails.. so you are not alone!
Having moved Bandit down the road means I'm now out mucking out daily. I got out riding Sat & Sun, and yesterday decided to walk to and from the yard - about 2 1/2 miles each way, brought the kids and had to push the buggy - we ran about 1/4 of a mile as out of nowhere it started hailing. Riding over the weekend was... erm... hard work. He was being ridden by a 15yo until 3 weeks ago and she must have let him away with murder. I hadn't ridden in ages and only have the road to ride on - at 17 years young, he took some pull. Sun he was a little monster and threw a buck in when I didnt let him away with napping. My arms were wrecked as he just kept pulling - I had to laugh at the woman who met us shortly after his tantrum and remarked how quiet he was! I'm thinking after all his problems this year, the fact that he felt good enough in himself to push means he must be over them :)
No walking to the yard today - its bloody cold out and my youngest has a woeful cough so going to have to keep him bundled up inside except to bring Bandit in.
I'm now back to working part time - last week was my first week. I'm eatting so much better and since I'm not stuck in the office I'm busy cleaning the house/yard - that's got to stand for something doesnt it?? :) My kid's last sitter told me I was looking much more toned when we were doing the school run last week - yay! Lol
