Another day closer to being a jockey-Sept. 20, 2011

    Ahhh! Sorry there have been no recent blogs in the last week! I have been so busy with school work, and staying caught up with everything in horse racing, it is unreal. Not to mention, there is still loads more that has to be done in a short amount of time. All will go well, though :)

    Ofcourse, I have been spending all my free time at the gym, as always! A few minutes ago, I got back from zumba and bootcamp. Last night was kickboxing, I can see how it is helping keep the strength in my legs. Trust me, there are bruises and sore spots everywhere! No pain No gain :) The good thing is, the after work out meal! As of right now, I am eating some savory chicken and veggie soup. It can't get any better than that. I stepped on the scale tonight, it said exactly 115 on the dot, so for right now that is fine. As long as I keep it ranging within 2 pounds of that. In the next few months, I will start dropping more weight to get about 108-105, NARA wouldn't have a problem in the world with that.

    This last week has consisted of me being at the gym, baby sitting, doing schoolwork, and I started training the horse for my friend. So every day I have been working with the filly, she is doing really well. The first time I rode her, she bolted with the reins from my hands, and galloped down the highway. That was no fun, plus, she nearly took a plummet down the shoulder of the road, that could have very well put her and me in severe condition. Luckily, we got her under control, and she is calming down under the saddle now. A couple of months should be good for her, she is a rather gentle horse, just requires an experienced rider. I rode her again the day before yesterday, and she done great, but it is not nearly over yet. She is still fighting the bit, so that will change, and she is a pain tacking up. Daisy is getting more used to the saddle every day that passes. Next week, I will focus more on getting her acquainted to the pressure of the bit, which will be the tricky part. I will keep everyone posted on her progress though!

    Now, lets talk school, I just started my second quarter ALREADY! Within a month of school :) Now bragging at all, but I am proud of myself, these goals are going to happen, and everything is falling into place right now. I just cannot wait for college, but don't want to rush life either, I'm just anxious to smell the fresh dirt on the track :)) I have made all A's and 1 B so far on the tests, the averages should come out all A's. Then, when award's ceremony comes, I should get most paces completed, and hopefully highest average. We will see how the school year turns out though, when November gets here I will be in 11th grade :) Things are going great!

    Well, I'm going to get some rest, then go check on the horse! Y'all have a great night, comment if you want to say anything, do not be shy :)
