On a Personal Note – No more horsing around!
As you probably know, I am an avid horseback rider and have been determined to continue riding up to my Dec. 26 due date. Several riders I know were able to ride throughout their pregnancy, so I thought – no problem! Ends up, I’m just not one of them. Unfortunately, my doctor strongly suggested I stop riding.
Riding was my main form of exercise and a great stress reliever. I really didn’t want to give up. I had to find a work-around, something that gave me the low impact exercise I need, but didn’t require that I completely give up something I love to do. Now I go to the barn, hang out with my pal Lyly, the horse I share, and swim for exercise. Lyly is incredibly clean now-a-days, since I have plenty of time to focus on grooming him!
Food for thought…Even when we think an obstacle seems insurmountable, there’s usually a way to work around it. Brainstorm ideas with other people, think out of the box and see what you come up with. It’s funny, I have decided to talk to my hubby more about the issues I’m struggling with. Talking it out with someone is a great help, he’s been a valuable sounding-board. Simple and easy.
Have a great week, Hallie
