Ya’ll, losing weight is really hard. It’s been a difficult, extremely slow process for me and lately I’ve been so busy it’s been tough to make eating healthy and working out a priority. And just when I felt like my goal of losing 25 lbs this year was completely and totally insane… I weighed myself.
Last week I have a bevy of first world problems that seemed to touch all important aspects of my life. Luckily, nothing is really, seriously wrong and everyone will be fine and things will get worked out. But let me tell you, it was a frustrating and exasperating week for me. Since nobody really wants to hear me complain, I’ll give you the reader’s digest version before moving on to better things.
Holy cow, it’s halfway through September! I don’t know about ya’ll, but this summer has just flown by for me. I can’t believe it, but the All American Quarter Horse Congress is just two weeks away. As the world’s largest single-breed horse show, it’s the perfect venue for a blogger meet-up, and I know a few locals have already expressed interest. So let’s plan a get together!
For the past few weeks, I’ve been riding the little bay Thoroughbred mare, Moiya, you met two weeks ago. Due to a tough situation completely out of my control, she’s become somewhat of a regular on my schedule in addition to her once-a-week IEA lesson. I’m definitely not complaining — I’ve loved being able to ride this awesome mare — but I do wish that the reason was different. Anyways, While Miles is out of commission (he threw a shoe on Sunday and is now brewing an abscess), I’ve also been taking my weekly lessons on Moiya. So far, it’s been really educational and a lot of fun.
Many of you are familiar with my Etsy store, The Printable Pony. I announced its grand opening right here on the blog, and several of you were my very first customers! Since then, I’ve been working on adding new products (although, very slowly), and I’m proud to announce a brand new category of products that we now offer: equestrian graphic art prints!
