Alicia's Diary: B-Healthy Challenge Update

Hi District B,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been making progress with my fitness goals and I am determined to complete this challenge set forth by Council member Johnson.

To show you just how serious I am, I wanted to share with you all an experience I had on Saturday, February 9 with my children and other family members on some farmland.

I decided that I wanted to ride a horse that day because I know that is a good workout for the legs, burns calories and overall can be a good outdoor exercise for anyone. Well, unfortunately the saddle was not on tight enough and I actually fell off of the horse! Yes, fell completely off! Boy what an experience for me. Not only did I hurt my hip a little but I sprained by wrist. So I am wearing a wrap until it heals.

This may delay a few of my workout plans for the week but it won't stop me from finding alternatives and continuing to eat right. That's what life is all about...overcoming challenges.

I Will Not Lose!

More coming soon.

Alicia J.

Yes, horse backriding is good exercise but falling off isn't apart of the routine!(smile)...get better and keep on pushing forward.
