*A quick thanks to Elizabeth Levitt, who intended to participate, but is unable to do so.
To be honest with you, I keep on doing what I usually do. Mow, plant flowers, work my veg garden,weed work with the horses, look after the chickens, etc, etc. The idea is to keep busy. I only eat when I'm hungry and snacks are usually healthly ones. (Hopefully fresh vegs from the garden). As for my goals-just to live each day like there isn't a tomorrow. What I mean is keep busy, keep a good attitude and keep moving. You don't necessary need to do a specfic exercise to keep fit.
Meal portion size is an important factor when trying to maintain a healthy diet. Eating three (smaller portion) well-balanced meals a day, with healthy (small) snacks, not only helps to lose weight (or maintain a healthy weight), it also increases metabolism, giving more energy to work with your horses.
I start my day with a good Whey protein shake then I head to the pool or if Im lucky the lake for a good swim for a vigouros aerobic workout for an hour or so; then I hop in my FIR Sauna Hot House to complete my daily jump start! Juice up a fennel, ginger, carrot and apple drink to replenish my body before I;m off to the barn to see my steeds. I keep my meals lean and simple with lots of greens! Snack lightly through out the day a good hearty lunch. Then for dinner it's normally fish or chicken with a fresh salad; I always try to eat asparagus to cleasne my body.
