New Years Resolutions

I know I was not gonna plan anything anymore, but its really hard for me, I like plans and lists and so therefore I am gonna make a list of things I want to get done over the year.

First off, the Horse Goals:

1. I want to sell some horses and get down to a reasonable amount that I can actually ride them and not feel like I am ignoring them. I think my horses like to be handled and ridden and I know for sure Bailey wants to go all the time and so does Kali, so I want to be able to have a normal amount.

2. I also want to get Jazz started and get a  nice decent couple months riding on her, inside and out and so if I sell her I know she will have a good chance at a good life.  Same with Disco, I want to get some riding on her and hopefully find someone who will ride her.

3.  I want to do lots of trail riding, I have a used to be neighbor that invited me to ride with him down by Dorothy and I will definitely take him up on that.  And me and Char had planned to go riding in the mountains last summer so I want to make sure we do that this year.  I also have a lot of opportunity to do lots of riding with cows and I want to do that as well.

4.  I want to cut.  I don't have a horse right now that I can cut on but at our last lesson on Saturday, Doug said he could find me a decent horse in the $10,000 range so that I can learn on them and then move up to the expensive horses.  Well I am not in a hurry and so will be pretty careful about what I look at and get help.

Then onto the regular goals:

1.  I want to get fit.  I am not so worried about losing weight so much as getting more fit.  I am working out hopefully 4 times a week and the rest will be full of riding and other stuff.  I am gonna try to eat healthier but it will be really hard cause I love sugar, but I will try.

2.  I want to finish the basement.  I still have to put up the shelves (that are not made yet) and finish the cupboards and varathane or stain it all. 

3.  I want to do some woodwork this winter.  I have been not doing much of it cause I was too busy riding and last winter my shed was snowed in, but hopefully it wont be so cold this winter and I can get some done.

4.  I want to get back to doing some more cross stitch.  I used to do lots but now I am too busy or just a little lazy and haven't done it in a while and I have enough patterns to do everyday for the rest of my life so I best get started.

I left them pretty open so that if all goes wrong they have lots of room to change them and if it don't all go the way I want that's okay, there's always next year.

Man ! If we were all closer we would have an all star team! Lots of us wanting to get healthy this year! I am trying to balance things in my diet , I don't have a swet tooth , but I do love carbs and buttery stuff, so I am reducing that while increasing all the veggies I can think of , and while I am never going to be a vegetarian I am tryin a few meatless meals while hubby is away
