Busy Month

OMG, between chasing around my little peanut who isn't quite so little anymore, attending conferences for school and beginning a Retrouvaille program with my husband in Albuquerque, I'm not sure what day it is anymore. I never would have thought the last month would be so busy.

At the start of the winter I decided to make a few changes in my life and the first was to quit biting my nails. I spent some money on nail care, but its been worth it. No more waking up with throbbing finger tips because I bit them so short. The next thing I did was start Proactive. Things have just gotten better since the last post. I have the clearest skin I've every had in my entire life.

Both of those changes have lowered my stress and let me hold my head a little higher.

Towards the end of January Nate bought me Zumba for my Wii. I love it. As a former dancer who can never get to the studio, this is an awesome alternative. I also got a smartphone about this time and started using fitness pal, and counting calories. I still eat what I want, but watch how much. Its crazy how many calories we put away in a day. To mix it up I also do Wii fit, and just bought a belly dancing dvd which I love. I'm also going to try Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. So basically I'm doing something new every day. I feel awesome. I'm totally in shape for riding season getting going again and riding everyday this summer as a full time Wrangler for The Zapata.

Oh yeah...and bathingsuit season, which is coming early for me this year...because Nate, Wyatt and I are going on a cruise for Springbreak.

And more on that later !

Wow! They say 'clothes make the man'.... appearance really can change a person's outlook. I am thrilled for you! Congrats!
Thanks for letting me know about Zumba for the Wii.... I just may be getting that! I need something!

Hmmm, maybe I need a step-on keyboard for typing posts and comments on my blog!

Good for you!

I have been loving my workouts and feel so much stronger and more balanced.

I may have to try the Proactive. I don't have break-outs so much, but my pores sure have gotten large. Would love to smooth out my complexion again.

It really does boil down to making the commitment to do a few little things for ourselves that make such a difference.

I've never been in better shape than when I was wrangling full-time. You just can't get the same workout in the gym as you do working horses.
