I just can’t stand pulling up my website and being reminded of the dent in my new truck. Someday John said he’ll pull the tail light off and see if he can’t just pop it out. I am not overly optimistic. If it works, great. If he can’t, oh well. The first cut is the deepest. (Name that song.) I’m over it now. Forgetaboutit already!
We did get out for a ride yesterday with our friends, Mary and Dwight. They do live in the county and are perhaps our closest riding buddies but still far enough to have to trailer when we plan a ride. Mary and I try to take turns so one of us is not always doing the trailering. Mary and Dwight also don’t mind getting out and moving, so we had a nice time road trotting and cantering down her gravel roads as well as riding in the fields along the creek.
I took this video of John on Fancy; I really enjoyed watching her increase her strides while trotting next to Windy and me. I only wish I had a video of her canter earlier in the day. She moved beautifully into frame and looked so smooth. I was in awe watching her. I think John had a good ride. I know I did.
After a twelve mile ride, I came home and worked out to a new DVD, Jillian Michael’s Killer Buns and Thighs. Oh. My. Gawd. She was likely to kill me! I know her exercises aren’t easy; I have been doing the 30-Day Shred and haven’t got past level one. But this one is tough. I couldn’t even follow some of the modified exercises. But let me tell you, I feel it today! So it must work! I am working toward a specific weigh and jean size goal. If the workout doesn’t kill me first.
