2014 to 2015


This is my whole outlook on 2015.

At the end of 2013 I consistently said, "This is your year Brantley... This is your year and you are going to rock."

2014 came and went along with:

Riding
Jumping
Galloping
Trail Rides
Hunter Pace
Horse Shows
WOODSTOCK
Lessons
Pony Rides

Did I mention that I fell off in the middle of a field, removed his bridle... And he stayed there... Waiting for me to get off my ass and back in the saddle.

2014 was a win... A complete win.


2013
I am still in awe of this amazing horse and how far he's come from the horse that I once knew. 

I'm more in love with those worried eyes every day that paces. The nuzzles, the kisses, and the way he tuck his tail when he turns around or goes to roll.

The way he looks to me to ask if it's okay...

He's becoming more of my partner in crime every moment I spend with him. 

2014
2015 is going to be our year. 

I'm going to give back and show as much effort to him as he did for me this year.
For the list I usually write try to keep myself together and organized but... That always fails.
So we'll try this.

My main goal for 2015 is to fit back into my show coat. I'm not going to say "old" because I've only worn it once, about 2 summers ago now, and I know for a fact I can fit back into it again. The fact is that over the last couple years I've really let myself go... A lot. Some of you out there get it more than others because it's not about how you look or what number the scale goes up to, it's how you feel. Honestly I feel like crap, mentally and physically.

You know you have a problem when all you want to do is sit on the couch because physically you feel like you can't do anything else. And mentally... I can't even get into it now.
Positive thoughts!

January 2015 Goals for Me:
  • Run/Jog at least 3x per week with the dog (or walk until I get my ankle brace)
  • Take group classes at least 1x per week (yoga, kickboxing, pole dancing)
  • Go out at least 1x per week... And not just for karaoke. I need to live a little more.
  • BACK OFF ON THE DUNKIN DONUTS!
**notice that I wrote AT LEAST because I'd like to do more**
January 2015 Goals for Brantley:
  • Get back to Cowboy for boot camp.

I need this view back.

I'm putting my health at the top of my list for 2015 too! Hopefully we can try to keep each other accountable :-)

We can do it! Steph from Hand Gallop posted about her running the other day in 20-30* weather and saying, "It'll make me a better rider" kept her going. We've totally got this.

Brantley & I would love to hear from you!
