Post Ride Update

I'm so tired I can't hardly even think.  The ride is over and I think it went well.  In spite of spending all summer marking and remarking trails, we had last minute issues with our maps (Annette lost not one but two computers last week and along with it pretty maps). Some cows ate some of our ribbons and mother nature knocked down a few trees. I think there will always be a share of natural disaster (for lack of a better phrase) on those trails.  Hopefully when we do it next year (and there will be a next year) we can spend all year keep up with it so we will be even more on top of it than this year. I have already started thinking about judges...

Weekly update

This blog is being recorded with Dragon dictation please excuse any
typos. After being diligent about my steps and exercise for many
weeks, this week I have been terrible! Well rather that is last week.
I am determined that this week will be good again. I started today
meaning to exercise, and like so many other days recently got bogged
down with pre ride planning. So even though I was dressed in my
workout clothes, the workout never happened. Today when I went to
feed, instead of sitting and playing on my phone or just sitting on
the water trough level are filled up, I walked around the field for 28
minutes. It's not a huge improvement, but it's better than no work out
at all. It is my plan to go home after my last massage and do a 20
minute H IIT workout. Or, I might do a Schayleen extreme burn circuit.
Most likely, it will be the Hiit . I do know that I can't allow the
ride planning to keep me from my exercise and eating well. If nothing
else, I need to start turning in 10,000 steps a day like I was for all
of July and August. I experience excitement when we could go Monday
when I weighed in at 2:16 .8. However today I weighed 220. Most
likely, some of that weight is waterweight. I also have not been
drinking like I did in July and August. Whatever the case it has to
stop now!

A brief catchup

I'm recording this new Dragon dictation so I apologize in advance for
any mistakesthat are made . In fact, I may find that this is a
fruitless endeavor. As I have al ready found one
mistake. It said littermate instead of that are made.

Mostly, I just wanted to make a catch-up post. I went to the benefit
ride with Maggie last weekend, and we had a nice time. Well, that's
not entirely true. Dixie became overheated, an almost didn't finish.
Dixy also tripped and fell throwing Maggie really far away from her.
It was amazing to me that no one was hurt or human . I had the most
brilliant ride on liberty but I have ever had. Only that but judge
didn't think so. He said that liberty was sore in his Withers and was
grade one lame at one of the on the trail checkpoints. I could not
have been more happy with my horse. He was amazing!

One week from today, I won't be at trace trails preparing for my ride.
I'm nervous at this moment, but I know that everything will come
together. I have room for more entries, and I hope that people will
enter soon!

In the meantime, I have started working as a music therapist Indique
Southlake Carroll school district. It is a new and exciting challenge
for me, as I have not gotten to do much work in the public schools in
the past. I love my coworker Melynda Williams, and I hope that we can
work well together. She has already given me so many great ideas to
get me started! I am lucky to be able to still see most of my other
clients. It is my plan to work my tail off for the next year, so that
we can finally get all of our bills paid off! Dave Ramsey would be
proud of my gazelle intensity.
