No more tears...

I often complain, that I can't go to the gym because I have to do this or that or I'm too tired, etc. etc., and it really has an effect on my weight loss (which has slightly stalled in the last few months). Today I found this quote that kind of kicked my butt into gear.

“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the MIND run the body. Never let the body tell the MIND what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired, in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the MIND is not tired.”

- George S Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

I also decided last week that I am going to run a half marathon, in Vegas! On December 2, come rain or shine, I will be running or walking 13 miles in my very first half marathon!! It might kill me, but I'm doing it!! I can't wait. If anyone else wants to join in, you can!!

Grant, our nephew moved a few weeks ago, to Indiana. Here is the last picture with him. We miss him a bunch, but his mom is good at keeping up on their blog, so we get to see him that way at least.

Aarebear comes to town

My good friend Aaren came to town last week too. Unfortunately I only saw her for a couple of hours, but we were able to fit in our ritual, eating at the RIO!

It just made me miss you more Aaren!!

Family Reunion

Last week my whole family got together for a day of fun at Snow Basin. It didn't end up being a day, my new little niece Nicole got a big gash in her eyebrow and had to be rushed to the hospital, so it was cut a little short. But it was fun to see everyone.
