Well I got back from my weekend away, alone, last night. Surprisingly I missed TJL! Not surprising in an 'I no longer love him and want to leave him' kind of way, but in a 'I love being alone and spending time with myself and I never get to do it anymore' kind of way.
It was good though. 3 days of horses, horses, horses - BLISS!!
Yep, the NRM 3 Day Event at Taupo was fabulous. Frickin cold, but fabulous. Friday, dressage day, rained a bit and was overcast and not great. Saturday, CROSS COUNTRY DAY - BOO YAH! Beautiful sunshine, but the wind was freezing! Sunday, show jumping, and again beautiful sunshine but when the wind got up … fa - reez - ing!
I haven't been to a huge horse trial event in years, and years, and years, and MAN the cross country jumps were ginormous! I took photos of most of them (ok all of the big ones, except the last one because I missed it). They were lovely looking jumps though, so well designed, very cool looking, but would I ever want to get a horse and compete to that level? Not on your Nelly! It took me about 2 hours to walk the course, obviously I wasn't walking fast, but I didn't think it would take me quite so long. Was good though, because being away meant that I wasn't exercising at home.
I had crap food for dinners (ok and brunches too), but whatever. Hmmmm, but whatever she says, having had a spackie this morning about not having lost weight despite a big increase in exercise amount over the last month *sigh*. I seriously don't get it, but that's a post for my other blog.
So life is great! Aside from the fact I want us to buy a farm so I can get a horse (or 3). But, yeah, life is GREAT!!
Oh yeah, had a blood test today - day two of Aunt Flo. Awww, whatever! Over it! But must.lose.weight!!
