34 Days Until Race Day!!! My Diet....

Ok! So I am officially 34 days away from the Salt Lake Marathon! Wahooie! :) I have been working SOOO stinking hard to prepare! I am teaching Yoga & Bodyflow three times a week, as well as taking Bodycombat classes, running, lifting, and riding the indoor road bike at the gym. I really am feeling pretty good about my "fitness" condition, but am a little concerned because I haven't been running quite as much as I would like to be. With a lot of faith and prayers I can finish the race right? My diet (as seen above) has been for the most part pretty simple! I try and eat a protein and vegetable with every meal....yes, even breakfast! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Wish me luck!!!!

My Lucky Bamboo...

My dear friend gave me a bamboo plant for my birthday. Bamboo plants (according to Feng Shui) are considered lucky because they teache the ultimate wisdom: how to be flexible and hollow (open) on the inside, so that the spirit can freely flow and heal your being. Pretty insightful eh? It is so "ZEN" and I love looking at it every morning! It brings me hope and peace for what the day may bring!

More Amazing Young Women!

More of the amazing young women in my ward out here in the Springs! We don't have nearly as many as we did in Salt Lake so I've had the chance to get to know them all pretty well. Each girl has something amazing to bring to every activity and lesson! Our recent activity was a father-daughter date. We played a game (as seen in this photo) where the girls stick their bare feet out from behind a sheet. Their dad has to guess which feet are their daughters....then the daughters have to guess which feet are their dad's! Most of them got it spot on.....I didn't think about the toenail polish on the girls. Dead give away!

My Laurel Friends!

Some of you may know that I am a Young Women's Laruel Advisor at my church....and I absolutely LOVE it! :) "My girls" are so freaking awsome and teach me so much! Here's a pic from our last activity, our father-daughter date. It's amazing how much spiritual strength these incredible young women give me every time I see them! I am hoping to have the opportunity to go to camp with them and get to know them even more!
