Ok so the weather will be getting nicer sooner or later...and when it does I want to be able to go running outside. Well now that I am a mom I can't go without my little guy! So I need to get a jogger so I can take Hunter with me, does anyone have any suggestions on what brand or more specifically what kind of jogger I should look into getting?

Here I Go...

Alright, since I had Hunter I have been wanting to lose the weight and then some....My goal is to be about 15 pounds thinner than when I got married. Well I have been eating really healthy, and working out about 4 times a week.I have been seeing results, but I want to take it up a notch and decided to maybe run in a race. I started looking at different blogs and was really inspired by this blog. The woman that writes this blog lost about 46 pounds and she started with this program that I am now going to follow! I have read the program and I don't think it sounds to hard, its just going to take commitment! I have registered for my first race, a 5k in Pocatello, its on May 15th thats the day before Landon and I go to Vegas, so hopefully that will help me be in shape by then! By the end of the summer I want to be able to do a 10k and Landon wants me to train to do a triathlon in Bear Lake(we will see!) So I will let all of you know how my training is going. I know I am not starting out big but I have to start somewhere, I would really love to be able to get myself to run a half marathon, but for right now I am taking baby steps but I am really excited! And to top everything off I asked my mom if she wanted to train and run the 5k with me and she is going to! So wish me luck...I am really excited for the next nine weeks of training and the race! If any of you runners out there have any tips let me know...from what to eat while you train, to good music to listen to that would be great!

5 things to be grateful for!!

I have been thinking a lot lately about how grateful and blessed I am!
Heavenly Father has blessed me with so many things
especially, so many wonderful people!

First of all I am so so blessed to have such an awesome husband!
Landon works so hard for our family,
since we Landon and I started dating he has worked a full time job
and had a full 16 credit class load, he really is so amazing to me!
Not only is Landon such a hard worker he is so much fun,
there isn't a day that goes by that he doesn't make me
Laugh so hard, he really has such an amazing personality!
I LOVE him SO much!

Second, I am so grateful for my little Hunter. He has such a sweet
and loving spirit! I look at him everyday
and just wonder how I got so lucky to have him!
I am so excited to watch him grow up!

Third, I am so glad for the family that I have!
We are all a little crazy but thats what makes life fun!
I am so blessed to have 3 brothers that are all amazing
Preston, is serving a mission
Reed, is a senior in High School
Jed, is in 8th grade
they are all so awesome and I am so happy that I have such
great relationships with them.
My parents are so great! They are such a great support
for me! They have helped me so much and continue to do so,
I really could not ask for better.

I know that I already talked about my parents, But I have to single out my mom!
She is so awesome, and is really my best friend!
We always have the best time together, and since I am the only
girl, I am really grateful that I don't have to share her with anyone!

Fourth, I am so blessed to have such good friends.
Katelyn and Whitney have been my best friends since I was a
sophomore in high school. We have all been through a lot together;
break-ups, friends, arguements, moving, weddings, and much more
and through it all I am still so close to both of them, and I am so
happy to have 2 such amazing girls in my life...they are really like
my sisters!
Fifth, I am so blessed to have 3 amazing sister-in-laws;
Sheena, Amber, and Lindsay! Since I don't
have any sisters it is so much fun to have awesome
sister-in-laws! When ever we get together we have the best time
and they all really feel like my family, not just like my husband's family!
And, all of us had babies this year, so we are going to
be able to raise 4 little ones together, I am so excited to
make memories with them at the lake, family reunions, and other adventures!
