Can I just say that I love Fridays and I am very sad when they over. See Fridays are now officially me and Chris' day. We both have off work so we get the whole day together to do whatever we please!!! Well yesterday was a pretty lazy one which was just what I wanted and needed. One thing I love about my days off is that I don't have to rush to the gym and back - I can take my time getting there and I can work out as long as I want! So I took advantage of that and did 25 minutes of weights and 60 minutes of cardio!! Go me!! After that I went tanning and then came home and made my new favorite breakfast - cottage cheese oatmeal pancakes (don't knock it 'til you try it!) I have been having a blast finding and making new healthy recipes!! So after that I just laid around and watched tv for a couple hours then I went to visit my mom for a little bit. Chris was very busy preparing for the message on Sunday - so I tried to give him a little time to himself. Then at 7 we went and hung out with an awesome couple from church - Amanda and Ben. We ate chicken and shrimp on the grill! Chris had to take over cooking because Ben had to run out for a bit and Chris was in heaven because he loves to cook - especially grilling!! After a very yummy dessert (Strawberry Shortcake) we went and saw What Happens In Vegas - which was hilarious!!

It was a good day! =]

Im so slack

Yes yes I know I am not succeeding at being a regular blogger but I want to assure you that my form of blogging is usually done through Spark People.....

Anyway, things are going really well right now. For awhile there I was going through a period of being discontent. Do you ever get to the point where you are like "there has got to be more than this"? You just don't feel like you are where you are supposed to be? Well that is exactly how I have been feeling...and that really is not a good feeling at all. Well after much prayer and talking to my best friends (my husband and my parents) I am starting to realize that I am exactly where I am supposed to be at least for right now. I have given the discontentment to God and asked Him to please make it clear where He wants me and what He wants me to do. And you know what? I trust Him to do just that! I know He has big plans for me and when I start doubting myself that means I am doubting Him... so no more of that!!!

So along with that I have been focusing a lot on taking care of my temple. I have started trying to "eat clean" and I have really stepped up the exercise! Through this I have learned that I am capable of doing so much more than I thought I was!! When I really put my mind to it I can accomplish A LOT! I ran for an hour this morning - 6miles!! I got sick of talking about doing things - now I am doing them!!!! You can't get anywhere without action, commitment, and determination!!

Lastly, I am really trying to invest time in the relationships in my life. It's vital to find who is important to you and then really nurture those relationships. It's especially hard when you are super busy with work but it also really helps you find who your real friends are - the ones who still stick around even when you cant see them as much as you would like! Sadly, theres not too many relationships worth nurturing right now but the ones that are there are amazing! Of course my husband and family! And then there is my best friend Erin who has been by my side through thick and thin for almost 8 years now... you know its a real friend when you can still maintain a friendship living in 2 different states! And then there are a few new friendships that I am super excited about!

I can't help but feel like big things are about to start happening!!! =]
