Well? This new year, 2023, is going to bring a lot of change into my life. I’m leaving South Dakota in 10 days and heading back to where this blog began: Austin, TX.
I was looking at some of my first posts on this blog, and I had tried a number of ways to lose weight. One of my favorite posts on this blog is from December 2011. “Getting back on the horse.” I made a simple list of the reasons why I wanted to lose weight. At the top of the list is a desire to ride horses.
I still have that goal. I’m finally at a weight where it’s safe (for the horse) to get in the saddle.
The Texas hill country is beautiful. And the weather can present a pleasant trail riding experience.
So, my goal for 2023 is to get in that saddle. When I do, I will post photos.
I started a new job that is taking me to Austin. I found a place close to the gym that I love. I’m hoping to go to the gym on the days I work from home: Tuesday, Friday and then on the weekends. If the traffic’s not too bad, I’ll try to get there during the week too.
In general Austin is an active town. I’m looking forward to making progress with my weight loss there.
Have a great end to your 2022, and I will see you next year!
Thanks for continuing with me on my journey.
