I think it goes without saying, but I'll say it's been a while...I'm blaming it on pregnancy. So here's the 4-1-1 on my life so far. I've been exercising less enthusiastically, but regularly. I eat when I'm hungry and I don't care so much what it is. That's not to say I eat junk. It just means if I want a bagel and cream cheese I eat it. If I want another portion of spaghetti I have it, and if I want a treat at the end of every day I don't drink a glass of water instead.

I have to say it's been hard to see the scale slowly move up. I know it's supposed to, but it's more that I realize how hard I have to work when all is said and done. The good news is I have all the tools and knowledge I need to get back to P90X and Insanity shape. And you better believe as soon as I'm able I'm hitting it HARD!!! For now though, I'm not going to worry about it so much.

I was able to attend the temple while my long time friend Steph received her endowment. It was awesome to see it happen so Congrats again to her. So glad I was able to be there.

I was watching a triathalon the other day and actually got teary eyed when I saw them cross the finish line, again I blame it on pregnancy. But it made me really want to do one. However, I should probably start with a marathon. I stink at swimming, and just doing a marathon intimidates the crap out of me. So baby steps, but they're both on my list. So a little shout out to Tanya who did a half marathon recently. I wish I were running next to you! You have definitely made some VERY positive changes in your life. It's very inspirational. When I'm done nursing I plan on training for one, a marathon, that is. If I'm gonna do it, It's gotta be the BIG one, mostly because it's the one that has me "walking" the other way. I would love some buddies because I need the motivation. Like I said I'm intimidated. So Tanya, Robyn, Tina, Becky, Brinley, anyone....?! I'm just sayin'...It'll be a few summers from now, but still.

On another note I'm heading to Los Angeles at the end of the month to meet Shaun T (Insanity), Tony Horton (P90X), Chalene Johnson (Turbo Jam), and work out with them. I'm headed down by myself, but no worries I'll be surrounded by thousands of Beachbody enthusiasts. I CAN'T WAIT!!! No kids, and pure fun for 3 days:) WHOO HOOO!

Tanner has started coach pitch baseball and he LOVES it sooo much! He is following in the footsteps of his father. I love to watch him out there, so cute:)

Last but not least we finally have central air. HURRAY! It took a lot of haggling, but I'm very pleased with who we chose. Honest and REASONABLE. Everyone else was clear out of the ball park. It was all said and done yesterday and I'm thrilled we no longer have to climb on the roof, fix whatever's wrong with the swamp this year, and suffer through the miserable wet, sticky, hot anyway, summer. The timing had nothing to do with pregnancy through the whole summer, either;) (yes, yes it did)

So there you go. My life thus far. Also we get to find out boy or girl May 14, so I'll be sure to let you know.


  1. Thanks for the update! It is fun to hear about what is going on. Yay for going on a trip with no kids! I want to have one of those someday! I hope you have a great time. Can't wait to hear what you are having!

  2. Oh and Kelly wants to do a triathalon too. He is getting a new bike today. After your baby, you guys will have to train for one together!

  3. thanks for the shout out! i had a great time running and that is right up your alley. i'm so jealous that you get to meet everyone, especially chalene, and shaun-t!!! pictures, pictures!!! oh, i tell chalene i lost all my baby wieght doing turbo jam!!! love you! i'm getting teary eyed just thinking about it, and i'm not even pregnant;)

  4. I'm so excited for your new central air. It costs more, but is so worth it!
    Good luck with the Marathon dreams. It seems like a lot of regular people do that as a motivation to get in shape. Now that you mention it, I'm surprised that you haven't done one already. :)
    We all know you're having a girl, and her name is Sydney. :)

  5. I've missed you! Glad you're back!
    I'm excited for your central air, no more hot summers, yay! And SOO excited for your trip! After working out with Shaun T the last 2 1/2 weeks I'm really starting to get excited for my exercise :)

    Good luck on the marathon aspirations! I'd do another 1/2, but never a full. I LOVE swimming so I'm totally going to do a triathalon one day! I'll probably cry that day too :)

  6. Who did you choose? We (I) might be considering that. I have never had a swamp cooler before and I am scared of it.

  7. Jeni I'm so glad you're loving Insanity. I knew you'd love it:) and Kim I used High Desert Heating and Cooling. Frank Welch is the owner and he's great. His business is run on word of mouth so he makes sure he is fair, and he goes the extra mile. We're so glad we chose him. Swamp coolers are manageable, but I just got tired of managing:) Let me know if you want his number.

  8. YES!!! When we're done having these dang babies, let's train for a marathon together! And goal is to do an ironman. Baby steps, right? Woo hoo! I can't wait to find out what you're having!
