The Countdown

Life has been pretty chill lately. There has been less rain, more sun. Less shopping, more saving. Less lazy, more exercise. Less chocolate, more vegetables. Lots of good things happening in my life and I have a lot to be grateful for. I am really anxious for summer. I love Seattle and am thankful for the rain... yes it is the price we pay for all the green here BUT summer time is where it's at! Boating, yachting, whale watching, summer soccer (hopefully no black eyes this year!), sun bathing, white water rafting, camping... This really is the perfect place for me. I can't wait for all the fun I'm going to have...

In anticipation for all these wonderful things in the coming months, I have created a countdown. And since I have been lame and haven't added pictures for ages, I will make up for it by adding pictures for each of these events as they occur. I'm so ready.


4 Weeks until Memorial Day Weekend... Boating season kick off in the great ML!

6 Weeks until my very first Triathalon

11 Weeks until Nichole & Ryan & kids visit me in Seattle! Yes!

13 Weeks until Laura visits me... Yachting in the San Juans! Yeah!

14 Weeks until Andrew's farewell... I'm going to sing...and maybe shed a tear or two.

14.5 Weeks until Andrew enters the MTC... go Elder Hyer!

15 Weeks until Emillie's wedding... I'm a bridesmaid.

18 Weeks until Maui... Aloooooha!

Now I gotta hit the gym or something. Here's to summer!

Just thought I should post a quick follow up. I started Jillian Michael's work out program a few months ago. I have seen some results... hoping for even more. Some weight loss and lots of new muscles. It is definitely a journey. It has really helped jump start my training for the upcoming Triathalon this summer too. I am a big fan of JM. It is a little sad how much I love her... I feel like she really is my personal trainer!

So as for the traithalon. I register this week. This IS happening. I know I can do it. It is going to be great training for something. I've never done anything like this before. It's going to be a great start to a healthy, bikini wearing summer too haha.

Speaking of summer... I can't wait. I'm over the rain and ready for the heat to kick in. I need some vitamin D people! This summer is going to be busy with lots of family stuff, the tri-training, and the occasional yachting on the family boat. Can't wait for that... oh then comes fall which means HAWAIIAN get away!

Oh and in conclusion... I have been watching LOST I'm in Season 4 right now... this show happens to be my new obsession and mostly because of him...
