Here is another one of my awesome quilts. I finished it almost a month ago but because of Squid I have been really busy. He is really time consuming. I love him to death and wouldn't change a thing though. He r0cks.

We Bought a Mower and Became More Adult

As if graduating from nursing school, buying a house, and becoming an RN wasn't enough of a leap into adulthood. If someone would have told me 7 years ago that I would be married with a career and an amazing life I would have not believed them. I always pictured myself graduating and living in a apartment with my girlfriends and finally moving out on my own for a while before I settled down. I didn't picture myself being married at 19 at all growing up. =] but I wouldn't change a thing. Being married to Steven has opened up more doors than I could have done for myself. I never would have ever been addicted to four wheeling that is for sure. Being done with school now makes me realize I could never have done it without Steven supporting me and pushing me along. He is my everything and without him none of what I have would be possible.

Crazy deep thoughts. Wow! And it was all because we bought a lawn mower.

Food Fact of the Day: Pumpkin

Loaded with Vitamin A, which is important for your vision; and fiber.

**I have a nephew that loves Pumpkin. He can't get enough of the dang stuff. My mom-in-law keeps cans of pumpkin in the pantry at all times so she can whip something up for him. It's awesome because who knows a kid that likes pumpkin that much?

More Changes

I woke up really groggy and lazy. I really didn't want to work out this morning. My neck is sore and my feet hurt from all the walking/standing I do at work all day. I ignored my body and started putting on my work out gear. *WARNING: this may be TMI ---> I caught a glimpse of myself in my sports bra and undies and was shocked! A good shocked. My belly sticks out less than it has in a long time. My calves looked good too. I can see some definition in my legs finally. I haven't had definition in my thighs since high school. Now don't think I have major definition but there is a little there. Not as much as I would like but it is there!  I liked seeing myself half naked today because it is the best my body has looked in a long time. So with that motivation I climbed on the bike for 30 minutes of hard riding. It payed off! 15.3 miles and 651 calories later and I feel great! I'm glad I got out of my funk this morning. I am really glad I opened my eyes enough to look in the mirror. 

When was the last time you felt good about your body? When was the last time you actually wanted to work out? When was the last time you remained motivated long enough to see the benefits?
