It's a lot of work tacking up the horse, and I've been gaining weight and need help getting up into the saddle. I just hate that. Plus my RA is bothering me, and I'm depressed about it to boot.
OTOH, I sit around all day and most nights anyway. Maybe the exercise will do me good.
Anybody want to help me decide? LOL
I am sure you can guess what I am going to say
I think riding, of coarse. But really sitting home isn't going to make you feel better about your self. If you have put on weight and are not happy (even tho you are beautiful and should be happy with how you are no matter what) then getting out and doing some thing fun is going to make you feel much better, for me riding is so peaceful and always makes me happy plus it is as healthy for your body as it is your mind. You will be much happier getting on a horse (even if you need help mounting, mabey get a bucket or if they have any steps it might make it easier) If you sit home watching tv you are just going to keep your mind on being unhappy with your weight, depressed with RA and wishing you could snack while watching tv and thats not going to help you at all so get on the horse and take your mind off your pain and enjoy yourself, I wish I could go for a nice long ride with you!
ETA: I just saw this was from last night, and you didn't go. Mabey next time. I would recomend you take some elkaseltzer (I can't spell for sh**, LOL!, Take the fizzy stuff, you know) Get bundled up buck up and get on that horse as soon as you feel better. LOL!
It is such a pain to get out and tack up and get going, but once you do, it is so worth it, so next time you better go! Lecture over ( I am just joking tho, you know how you feel)
