I feel like I have no goals for my riding or for the horses. While that isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's not really ideal either. Without things to aim for this can be an un-fulfilling hobby (and an expensive one at that!). I tried to come up with some goals but they were all a bit vague and obviously I wasn't into it - so I tried to get to the root of it. I love horses, I love showjumping, so why don't I care? I've been getting fatter and lazier and I wonder if this is a part of it?

So instead of having a riding-specific goal, I have a goal that sort of runs alongside the horses. By 1st August (horses birthday!) I want to no longer be overweight. I've been making an effort for over a month now, and I'm well on my way to where I want to be. I still don't feel enthusiastic, but I am hoping that when I can be more balanced and look better in the saddle again that things will fall into place. And heck, if they don't - it's not like I've lost anything except for some excess weight that I didn't need in the first place.

I really hope I can stick with it - I'm quite fickle at times. I'm pretty sure Neo is excited about the idea of not having to cart as much weight around though (big strong Cody probably doesn't care).
