While He's Away

Sleeping in has never been my thing but when you wake up at 10am, what can ya do? I did what I could to not stress out too much over it, I rushed to do dishes and clean a few rooms so that I didn't feel like I totally wasted my morning. Then I was planning to go to the gym but I opted to hike the Y! It was a beautiful sunny day and I didn't want to miss out on it! I hit the trail with myself, a camera (I don't even think it works) and water, I didn't even have music! There's always a point on the hike where I think to myself' "why in the world did I even start this!" and that thought comes about 28 feet into the hike!! It gets pretty intense haha. But I went to the top and back to the bottom in 1 hour and 5 mins! I thought I would get finished quicker but I forgot my knee is hurt and it was SO hard to get back down!! But along the way I met this MASSIVE dog! The couple said he was a husky- Saint Bernard mix. He was gorgeous! After the Y I wasted 2 hours at the mall debating whether or not I would buy something, I ended up not :(

I picked up a book at the library- At First Sight, I was in a Nicholas Sparks mood. I'll see how it goes. Zack comes home soon--can't wait!!

boo for away games :(

Gotta love the family that takes care of you when your hubby is gone- Brookie, KC, and Owen stepped in to make sure I wasn't sitting home alone. We watched The Time Traveler's Wife. I had never seen it but I definitely let some tears out! When Zack is gone I'm a lot more sensitive, I don't know why I watch those kinds of movies when he is gone! I know it's only one night, but that is a really long time when it's your best friend! Oh well, I have a long list of things I can accomplish tomorrow! And then he'll be back by 9 (hopefully sooner) :)

Biggest Loser!!!

I love Biggest Loser! I'm so excited it's back on!! (it stopped while the Olympics were going) that show is so motivating!!! Jillian is such a great trainer- but I am so scared of her. I've had a couple dreams where Zack and I have been on the Biggest Loser Couples series (only we weren't over weight) Jillian was so mean to us though ha ha. I love that show because you can see the real reason people are there. Sure winning a ton of money rocks but really they just want their life back. They can't live their life to the fullest, they are trapped in a body that is ruining them. I'm always sad to see people go home because I'm afraid they are going to go back to their old ways. but I love to see them when they go home and lose another 50lbs! I get so excited for them! I think I tear up at least once every show :) it's so great to see them all push for each other to succeed. last week they had a temptation challenge and one guy ate more than 2000 cals in one challenge!! He was so grossed out but he use to eat more than that at every meal before! It's so great to see how the life styles of the contestants change. It's such a great show :)

Bum knee and a new job!!

I'm so bummed. I was all excited to train for my first half marathon, and I was doing SO well in the beginning 2 months but then my knee started getting really sore. So sore that I couldn't run anymore and now it's to the point where I am limping where ever I go. I feel so lame :( I miss being able to just get up and run! but I'm too stubborn to go to the doctor. Zack says I need to get it rubbed out and that it will never stop hurting if I don't, but I just keep thinking it will just get better. I'm ready to start seriously working out again. 45min work out every other day just doesn't cut it for me. I need to have something to work for. I'll have to buck up and find a doctor to help me!!! Because this is just getting ridiculous. I feel stuck and it's not fun at all. But I did start a new job! I got hired at a spa called Canyon Breeze Spa. It's just opening up (we're having our "soft opening" this month) and then a re-opening will happen in April! I'm excited! it's been pretty good. A lot of work and only a few clients. So if any of you need a facial, pedicure, waxing. . . give me a call!!! you can come in! Prices this month are the best. It should be a good job, keep me busy doing something I love- a little stress relief :)
