Okay.. I am a bigger rider and way out of shape. Due to three accidents in a row I was pretty much bed ridden for 1 year.
First a horse kicked me on a trail ride and broke my leg in two places. Then after that I was walking out of my building and stepped down wrong and due to that leg previously being broken it was week and I broke my ankle. Then I got thrown into a truck and messed up my shoulder and arm. Thus leading to me gaining a good bit of weight.
Then my mare has been out to pasture since March, because she had a foal this past Aug. I will be bringing her home tomorrow hopefully :)
So my question(s) how do we get back into shape? I need help like making a exercise plan. What are some things that could help the both of us? I have a lot of time during the day so I'm open to any advise. I really want to lose some weight so I can fully enjoy my mare. I am very embarrased/ashemed of how much weight I put on and that being said you can imagine I don't like to trail ride with the local goups that ride as I am afraid someone will say something about my weight and it is a very sensitive subject. The trail riding groups we have are great and I would like to be able to ride with them again but like I stated I would like to get back in shape first :) I also am wanting to learn to ride English but again I want to be in shape first.
Also if anyone has any advise on a diet that would be great. Please no rude comments I really just need some advise :)
*Also I do want to put out I am unable to get to a gym. My mom had terminal cancer and I take care of her, my little brother and little sister. So going to one is out of the question. I can however do anything that involves being outside I just need to be near the house in case my mom needs me.*
