Unemployed: The road to a better and healthier me.

I quit my job. Usually I would advise against this, but I have to argue this was probably the best choice I could make at this point in my life. Luckily I have a darling husband who has "skills to pay the bills", which will allow me the time to work on improving my life...all for a brighter future, full of memories (and hopefully)... babies

Today is August 1st.

Whitney and Taylour decided a nice "little" hike would be a good initiation to my healthier life. We went up Ferguson Canyon around 8:00 this morning. It was fairly overcast, but the sights were beautiful. As we started our hike, we looked westward and saw a rainbow through the little pocket of sunshine. I'd like to think it was a sign...

(Have I ever told you how wonderful sisters are? Well, they are.)

I literally almost lost my "cookies". I was frustrated and embarrassed at how out of shape I have become. We decided to stop at the second waterfall. Maybe one day I'll make it to the top, but today wasn't that day.  I don't think tomorrow will be that day either. Just sayin'.

(Not fair. Why am I the white, blotchy one?)

We came back to the house and my sisters continued to teach me their "abs and arms" routine. I did 20 sit ups, 9 "girl" push-ups, and could only hold my "spiderman" pose for 30 seconds. Lame.

For dinner, we had delicious Greek pitas. I found the recipe HERE.

The evening found us in the backyard with 2 lovely ladies:

In other news:  It has been almost 7 months since our wedding and 0 thank you cards have gone out. Yes, I know this makes me the WORST bride EVER, but I promise they are at the top of my "to do" list. I PROMISE.

just because it might be hard."
