Challenged By Choices

Started this mind set and journey about the middle of January. Today is April 18th and I am officially down by 20 pounds. It sure does not sound like a whole lot. I do have to say though I feel a world better and my riding is really improving. I do not think I would be able to stay this focused if it were not for my personal trainer and the work out he puts me through. (No, I’m not some celebrity – You too can have a personal trainer – It is affordable)

Today I did read something that struck a nerve and maybe you will get the same motivation from it. I purchased from Habit Nest the Nutrition Side Kick Journal where I log my food and thoughts. It said the following: Your choices are 100 times more important than you think. Every choice you make today is building up a habit for the rest of your life. Our brains learn from what we do repeatedly. Ask yourself: If I made this choice EVERY DAY (for example, the decision to have something sweet after dinner every night) would I be a lot closer to my goals, or a lot further?

Lets Talk Bras

No this is not me. If I took a poll of equestrians who would rather not have breasts at all, I bet the number would be pretty high. Those of us with the kind of breasts that bounce to our chin during the sitting trot totally will understand this post. It’s all about finding that right bra. On a whim, I stopped in a Soma store a couple of weeks ago. I did not even try it on. Told the counter girl that I ride horses and need something that will keep my shoulders back and my ladies confined. She said, lets at least measure you huh? Ugh, fine, okay!!

Walked out with a new bra. Haven’t rode in it yet, so no testimonials yet. Subject came up at this weekend’s show and was also told about the above brand made by Enell. So if this Soma doesn’t do the trick, I’m down for what looks like a pretty military style, zip those puppies right up. Actually, looks like buckles right up. Kind of wish there was a zipper. After all, there was made mention of the riders who’s clips came apart and the puppies were free throughout her test. Oh my goodness, I would die. Literally!! Concussion!!
