First Post

Welcome to my weight loss/exercise/nutrition blog.  This is the first post.. and read on if you would like to join in or find out how I am planning on accomplishing my goals!

I do have another Blog..  and if you like horses, dogs, familys and such, you can check it out HERE.. but I figured I would put all of my "getting healthy" posts over here.  This blog is all about my journey to finally getting rid of the Fat and becoming a bit more FABULOUS in my britches!

Women and Weight loss have had a very volatile relationship from the creation of the world really.    Kind of like my relationship with bread, cheese, Big Macs, Chocolate, and Macaroni and Cheese.  Macaroni and Cheese is my nemesis.. and there will be more on that in the first nutrition post.

I could write that I just want to get fit, and healthy and be all Politically correct, and love my shape.. but really, who am I kidding?  I want to look hot.  I want to be a 40 year old HOT chick.  I want to be able to wear a REAL bathing suit.  The kind that comes with .. TWO pieces.

But really, my true motivation for this.. is my horse.  He is tired of carrying my fat ass around and I am tired of the extra effort it takes for me to balance and ride.  I would love to look good in my britches.. and seriously, that is what it is all about for me.. looking good in my britches and boots and in my saddle..Now.. before I go any farther.  There are people who are heavy that are very good riders and look good in their britches.  I am not one of those lucky bit.  wonderful people. I have much better balance when I am fit and thin, and right now, I look atrocius in britches.... Uggghh I can't believe I am showing this picture.. . but here goes...

This is at a Morgan Show.. our first training level test.. It just makes me shudder...

So to accomplish this.. I will need a plan.. a solid plan.. That will include exercise and nutrition.. eeeeeeeek...
I love certain kinds of exercise.. but I hate the kind that actually requires time and effort.. and I am going to have to just get over that.

Does anyone watch the Biggest loser?  Does anyone watch it like I have in the past?  In my recliner, with a bowl of buttered popcorn, a coke, some Ferraro Roche and a couple of oranges???

Oh.. well Okay.. I am not going to watch it that way anymore.. NOPE.. I am not.  The new season starts on January 5th, and I have decided, that will be my official start date as well. That is the date I am starting this adventure with exercise and nutrition.  I want to make sure that I plan and prepare and actually have a plan.. so the next post will be just that.. how to have a plan.  Because come January 5th, I am going to start saying goodbye to couch potato girl and hello to fabulous fit Dressage Queen!

These are a couple of my inspiration photos I found online..  One is Dressage based, and the other is just britches in general.

So these are my inspiration photos  The goal is that by September of next year.. that is what I look like in britches!.. and next post will be the plan.. stay tuned for more!

I am off to lunch!
