Sometimes I don’t know how I got here. Oh I joined 3 fat chicks like everyone else but how did a texas healthy girl turn into a 250+ overweight middle aged woman. Yes I still consider myself a cowgirl even if my horses the last 7 years have turned into expensive hay eating lawn ornaments. I love horses and always will, they are my passion and my instrument into becoming the cowgirl I was and the one I want to become again. I have dreams. Dreams of being a healthy woman competing again. Rodeos are probally out but I have aspirations on doing great things with my magnificent creatures.
I need to clean up my act so to speak. Clean eating and whole foods are the only way to go, basically it is what I grew up on minus the fried chicken, white potatoes and cobblers. Join me on my journey. I will post recipes, my progress and pictures of my horses and becoming the cow girl I want to revisit.
I think we all have to hit bottom before alot of us realize what we are doing to ourselves. For me it has been coming… I kept telling myself I need to lose so I can get back up on my horse. She is preggo right now and expecting a foal any time so it has been an excuse of not dedicating myself to a better healthy and life. I went to the doctor last week, and I now have high blood pressure. I begged and pleaded to not be on medication, he prescribed some anyway but is allowing me to lose weight to see how it goes and see where we are in 60 days. So new life will start tommorow. I am ready.
