    I'm doing low carb, I can have all the diet coke I want! Lol I've lost 65 lbs in the last year. Want to loose another 20ish.... My will power has gone out the door! I can't get myself back in the groove. Haven't gained any back, but haven't lost any more. I absolutely REFUSE to gain! I feel so much better.

    I hear stuff on the Paleo diet, but haven't read anything about it. Tell me in laymans terms, what is it? Lol

    WTG on the weight loss! Our household is more Paleo-based rather than adhering to any strict guidelines; we focus on eating veggies, fruit, meat, nuts & seeds. Nothing processed or prepackaged, no dairy, few added sugars. We do occasionally eat beans, white potatoes & rice. Once we realized my son needed to be gluten-free and dairy-free, it was just easier for all three of us to go this route. As a whole, we feel considerably better on a daily basis. When I do splurge on something non-paleo (like that delectable cheese platter that was calling my name!) I will feel adverse affects for days. Or break out like a teenager going through puberty.

    Thanks everybody for the concern. These mares are not ready to drop a foal yet. Just past the 320 day mark. We have a week or so to go before the every two hour go out in the pasture and check routine. I am now going out with a flashlight and giving them all a treat. Now when they see the flashlight they come to me.
    If one of the preggos doesnt show up then I get to go look.
    Kctop when we get close I will enlist all help. That you can be sure of. LOL
    Besies since there are already demands for pictures and the little rascals arent even here yet I will let you do the honours. Shalom

    3 arabian mares one dark bay, one chestnut rabicano, and one black. All were bred to my stallion around april 30 of last year. We are expecting all black or bay foals.
    The chestnut mare is a half sibling to my stallion and they have produced all blacks so far. Star by the way is black and throws a lot of fillies. Shalom

    Chocolate breaks me out like a teenager. Our diets are similar except that I do dairy. I am a meat and veggies gal and I don't do fast food unless I've just come out of a cardio class and my hr monitor says I've burned upwards of 800 calories. I do at least an 800 calorie cardio workout three times a week and eat simple portions on my plate at home. I don't do processed if I can help it and I don't do the super fast foods like McDonalds/Taco Bell/you get it. But I will eat out at restaurants, especially Mexican food. But I count them and then I burn them.

    The easiest way I THINK to do it is to eat meat and veggies, and don't eat anything that comes out of a container or a box! Didn't someone say once: if it didn't have a mother or wasn't grown from the ground then don't eat it'...that sums it up pretty good!!

    You live the dream of every little girl who ever read or watched The Black Stallion! I definitely want to see pictures. Am I correct that rabicano is similar in appearance to what I'd call roaning on a QH?

    Good morning to you!

    Hope y'all are staying warm. I want to be back under my covers. I felt a tiny twinge of guilt when Cash was nearly the only horse without a blanket on at the boarding facility last night. He seemed content in his loafing shed and I'm not usually one to blanket a non-showhorse unless it's extremely cold, windy or wet, but I felt a little "bad mom" nonetheless. Not so much that I've gone to a tack store, though.

    So, I was Google-learning the differences between rabicano and roan - interesting! I learn so much at the office. One of these days I should try working while I'm here.
