I made it to 30!

I have 30 followers!  I am appreciative of each of you that bother to read my ramblings.  I am so happy to have started this blog.  I didn't even know about the world of blogging not too long ago and now look at me all made that up could you tell?

30 is significant for me this year in more than one way.  I turned the big 3 0 this year!  Not a big deal to me.  The number really doesn't mean too much but it does make me think a little more about how I am spending my time, what I am investing myself in and what I want to accomplish.  Time starts to move a little quicker with every passing year and I definitly want to seize the day.  That is part of the reason I "just went for it" when it came to persuing my passion of horseback riding.  I wasn't willing to let another year go by saying "one of these days" I will fullfill that dream.  I mean if I don't do this for myself it is not like someone is going to do it for me.

Then there is the 30 lbs I am on track to losing this year.  At weigh in today I was down 16 pounds!  It feels so good to feel so good.  One thing I realized today is that my knees don't hurt anymore!  The last few years my knees have hurt when I would go up and down stairs and squating.  I don't know if that has all to do with weight or if riding agian has helped but I do know it feels good.  My goal is 30 and I may go for a few more once I hit that goal but that is a weight I am happy with.  It is another one of those things that I realized that if I don't do something about this now it will only get harder.  I am going to weight watchers and it is the accountibility I needed.  Along with dropping weight my goal is to be in shape to start eventing next year!!!  Now that is a motivating goal for me!

So 30 is the number of the year for me.  Thank you to each of you that make that number up and I am glad you are going on this jouney with me.


  1. Wow, I'm turning 30 this year too, in just a month or so actually. Like you I'm not too phased, just using it as a time to think more about our lives, where we are on our journey to living with more intent and purpose. Congrats on 30 followers and congrats too on being more than halfway to your 30lbs! Here is Australia we don't use pounds (good old metric for us) so I'm not entirely sure on how much 30lbs is, but it sounds like a lot! Keep up the great work! Vic xx

  2. Congrats on thirty followers! Isn't it exciting realizing that so many people want to read what you right? That's how I feel anyway lol.

    I like the way you think. I just turned twenty five this year and have not been happy about it because time has been flying by so fast! I can't imagine it getting any faster. I think I'm going to try to think about it the way you do. :)
