Vacation Talk :)

on May 19, 2012

I feel even better than I did this morning!   Really tired, but I am so glad to be on the mend.  🙂   In just a few weeks, I will be on a much-needed vacation.  I am telling you now I am so ready for this vacation.  I haven’t had one in 11 years.  Eleven!  I normally use my vacation for Summer mission trips, but this year I really feel like I need a break.  Not from being on mission, but just to spend time with my great family and see some sites.  🙂

Who will be going?  My brother Jason, SNL Lynn, my niece Erin, my nephew Dalton and myself!   I am telling you, I cannot wait!

Tonight I went over to my brother’s house to book the hotel rooms.  Well, Lynn did the booking, I just stood over her shoulder and watched.   I love my SNL!  She picked out hotels that will sleep all of us aaaand she made sure there were fitness rooms at every stop!  I love her and she knows me so well.  🙂

Some of the things that we are going to do:

  1. Mt Rushmore
  2. Crazy Horse Memorial
  3. Custer’s State Park
  4. Dinosaur Park
  5. Gold Cave
  6. Indoor water park
  7. hiking

I just know that there are things that we will do that aren’t on this list!


If I could start packing now, I would. 😉


In other news:

Something has really been bother me lately.  The worst thing about this?  I couldn’t put my finger on it.  Doesn’t this drive you nuts!  For the first time, in a long time, it doesn’t have anything to do with my weight or fitness.

I know that there are aspects of my life that I want and need to keep private.  More specifically, my job.  Out of respect for the company that I work for, I don’t post any pictures of where I work or with whom I work.  This is really difficult for me.  I spend most of the daylight time at work and can’t share a lot of it with you.  Even if I have a difficult day and want to vent.  Out of respect, I don’t.  Not being able to share this with you guys makes me feel a little limited on what to post about.  A LOT of my days look exactly the same.  🙂

A few months back I was even dealing with this big decision in my life, and have yet to even talk about on my blog due to respect for all parties involved.  This big decision?  It would have led me in a totally different direction professionally.  Did it pan out?  No it didn’t.  Is this a bad thing?  No it isn’t.  🙂  I knew from the get go that no matter what the result, it just wasn’t in my hands.  As much of a control freak that I am, not having it in my hands was a good thing.  I would have just jacked it all up!  🙂

Why was this bothering me?  I want to share my life with you guys, but I know that some things can’t be shared.  So let’s see, can’t share my job, no husband, no children (without fur), that doesn’t leave a whole lot for me to talk about.  🙂   Somehow I felt that just talking about my struggles with weight, and food seemed boring.  I know this is silly, but you can see how it would be right?

So here are some questions for you?

  1. What do you do in your spare time?
  2. What do you do for fun?
  3. How do you balance privacy and blog posts and still find things to talk about?



Some great news!!

I ordered the Insanity kit!  I was talking to my BF Angey tonight and she has been doing this workout for a week now and can already see a difference.  We have been talking lately about how our age has affected how we see change in our bodies.  No longer can we just do the 20 to 30 minute workouts to see a difference in muscle tone.  As much as I am time conscientious, just ask my co-workers, I am excited for this change.




Kiiiinda stoked.  🙂


Pretty 🙂  Mom this is for you, I love you.



I have church tomorrow, so I am off to get ready for bed.  Have a super night!

    Thank you baby girl for the flower. Glad you are feeling better. Hope you have a great night and day at church!!!

  2. I hate those, something that you know is feeling off but can’t exactly name it. I always think it is hard because I am the same way in not wanting to share the full details about the job I will be starting but I mean that is our lives right? I am so happy for you and this vacation. I want a vacation bad! It seems like yours will be a blast.

    I struggle with not talking about work too – it’s such a big part of the day and week, but for me it’s also necessary to keep it private. Sometimes I talk about it in general terms but that can get confusing too! It sounds like this vacation is definitely needed and you are seeing some great sights – very fun! I can’t wait to hear about it when you go 🙂
