Also I haven't had time to ride George yet either. PLUS it has been COLD ... I originally said that I wouldn't be riding unless the temp is atleast in the 30's. And we haven't had that - it's been in the teens and 20's.
So I haven't started with that yet either.

George is our Standardbred X-Race Horse, X Amish Horse, who has found a very special place in my heart. We love our GEORGE !

POINTS

Exercise Video (your own) = 10 points
Ride horse for atleast 20 minutes = 10 points
Drink atleast 6 glasses of water (within 12 hours) = 10 points

BONUS
Exercise Video (that I post in this thread) = 10 points
You get 10 points per exercise video that I post that you complete - each time you complete it.

If you get 500 points within 1 month (30 days) you'll win a customized full size (ready for print in 8x10 or 12x12) Photo Art.
If you get more than 500 points - your points will roll over towards winning another customized photo art! So in other words - you can keep working at it and for EVERY 500 points you get - you get a full size photo art customized to suit you!

This is a fairly easy goal to obtain - especially if you do all 3 goals per day atleast 5 days per week. You'd have all your points within a couple weeks of doing it. Plus there's the bonus points you can get to! So it's very obtainable and reasonable :)

Here's my Photo Art Website : Julies Photo Art

If you're local and are interested in winning a photo session - just pm me and we can put your points towards winning a photo session.

I have lost 5 lbs this week, just by watching calories and eating healthier foods.

It is so hard to do much of any exercising due to the freezing temps.
I am trying to find more things to do inside but my place is so small and isnt much room to move around .
I have a balance ball so I think I will start there.

Keep us posted on how you are doing!

Love this thread! I am 5.5 and 160 lbs...but oh so flabby! I shudder to have my self video'd riding with my butt wobbling all over at the trot...and then when my instructor comes over to test my core strength and pushes her finger into my belly and has to find her way through 3 inches of flab to get to my abs (which do exist, I am sure!). 2011 is my year to get back to a happy, thinner, fitter me which would be around 125 lbs. Ill be checking back and getting my points for sure!

It's good you want to be healthier and loose some weight! You'll feel great too in the end, not too mention proud of yourself! :) I am also trying to have a healthier lifestyle, (not on the eating side) ok maybe a little less sugar but I already eat lean meat and lots of veggies, but ya I am trying to force myself to do exercise and tone my body. I used to be so fit but with school you have no time and end up eating instead! :P

A ride a day keeps the worries away!
