I don’t like making goals typically, because I feel like I’m just setting myself up for failure. However, I think it’s time to be an adult and make some realistic goals.
The last two years have really been a crapshoot for doing what I actually want to do, but I would really like to change that.
First up, Horse Goals:
-Start riding Dexter consistently, even if it’s only twice a week
-Get more confident riding my horse
-Choose a direction for training
-Find a trainer to lesson with at least twice a month
-Decide between wanting a jumping saddle and a dressage saddle
-Buy a saddle (we’re tentatively going to meet with a saddle fitter January 23rd ish)
-Keep the horses at the boarding barn until the end up April and have a good basis of rides in so I’m more comfortable riding when we go home
Next up, Personal goals:
-Pay off debt
-Stay caught up better with laundry and house work
-Come up with a meal plan
-Cook more regularly, even if it is only crockpot meals
-Make at least a small step in the direction of fitness, even if it is just walking my dog
-Get in better shape, or at the very least start eating better (I could use to lose at least 20 pounds, but never having tried to lose weight, the whole idea of this is really overwhelming)
I think that’s a good place to start. I’ll be happy to make small steps in the right direction, as all of you probably know as well as I do, big changes usually take time.
