Bobbing for apples

Saturday, October 24, 2009

I just came back from a Halloween party at the barn where my daughter rides. They had a costume contest on horseback--too cute. Addie (Cleopatra) got second place. Then they had relay races with ponies. They had one lead-liner, one walker, one trotter, and one canterer on each team. They did an egg and spoon race, one where they had to ride down and put a little pumpkin in a bucket, and one where the horse had to bob for apples. It was an absolute riot!! If I ever get as technologically competent as GinaKay or SusieReardon, I'll put the pictures and video on here...

As an aside, I have been battling my bad behavior (eating and drinking) on the weekends. I lose weight during the week and gain on the weekend only to stay about the same for over a month. I realize this is not a true plateau but I'm out to bust it. Being good all weekend--I swear!

    I can TOTALLY relate about the weekends... My son has been staying with us lately, so we have been making a lot heartier meals than normal. We also had a party today, making homemade lasagna tonight and with J's son being here this weekend also we will have a HUGE breakfast tomorrow... I guess I'd rather be at a plateau than gaining right now! :-)

    It sounds like a fun party. We had one up here... it's so hard to watch our behavior all the time but I guess understanding why the scale is at a plateau is a good thing. Find a nice reward for yourself for being good this weekend! you earned it!

    I have more trouble when I am busy out and about than when I am home. Most people are just busier and more social on the weekends. Keep trying. I know we can do this. I would love to see the horse bobbing. It sounds hilarious. Enjoy the weekend with as much healthy food and drink that you can. Hugs from central Illinois. Janet
