A major accomplishment.

Those of you who know me, know that I am not a fan of physical activity.
I tend to shy away from playing games and such that require..well pretty much anything that requires moving! :).
The one exception is my walks in Valleyview. But, I noticed that I have been gaining weight and those walks aren't making the difference that I wished they would.
I came to the realization that this was probably because I wasn't challenging myself.
Well, not to worry. I most definitely challenged myself today.
I walked up the Juniper Hill. Waittt I got more. I walked up the Juniper hill without stopping. 
Granted a couple times I slowed my pace but I am more than pleased with myself.
I felt the burn. Pretty much from the start. Felt the sweat. Noticed that that hill has got to be the grossest thing ever. There was garbage everywhere.
Two things that I regret:
1. Improper shoes. As you can see from the picture I was wearing flip flops. BAD IDEA. Cannot be good for my reoccurring case of shinsplints.
2.No water. The stupid thing is I was totally going to bring some..and then I forgot. The whole way up the hill I was dreaming of that cool water backpack thing that Matthew has. It's like a backpack with a pouch of water inside and it's got a tube that you put in your mouth. Anyway.

My head was this strange combo of burning up and cold all at the same time.
And I felt like I was going to throw up for most of the walk.

The faithful legs that just kept plodding along even though they were screaming to quit.

The first picture didn't show my pain well enough so I had to take another one.


I realized today that I don't cry anymore.
It made me sad.

10 signs that you are a mom-in-training.

*Note* Some/all of these might have happened to me in my recent history.*

1. You go grocery shopping. Extra points if you did not buy anything you did not need.

2.You woke up at five a.m. and considered staying in bed 'til six a luxury.

3.You had a nap, and still feel like you could go to bed at 8 p.m.

4.You make bread, and feel like that is such a big accomplishment. Extra points if since you made 4 loaves you already are thinking of freezing one and giving away another.

5.You clean the kitchen just because you like seeing it clean. And have the initiative to take out the garbage because it is full.

6.You overcome your gag reflex and throw out all the moldy food in the fridge. Bonus points if you wash out the vegetable crisper as well.

7. As you are going about your business you see the job that you were supposed to do yesterday, and you do it without anybody telling you too.

8.You listen to music that nobody between the ages of 15-30 would even think of listening to.

9.You put the water on for tea, then forget about until two hours later when the water is cold again.(=) this one happens to my mom all the time...of course it scares me that I am becoming like her at such an early age.)

10. Instead of your old cravings of pop and candy. You are starting to be drawn to healthy things such as fruit and water.

Ahhhhh I'm at peace.

Have you ever felt that really peaceful feeling.
That feeling you only get once you have planned a big part of your life and you know exactly what you need to do in order to reach your goal.

Well, okay. It's only this summer I have planned but right now, the fact that I could even plan that much is pretty amazing.

So here is my plan.
1.Get school done by the end of May(which considering may is a really busy month for's going to be hard. I have Homeschool convention, Choir trip to Alberta, Harold park and prolly a million other things.
2. Work a little extra in June to save up money for the summer..and drivers ed..
3.Go to camp for the whole summer (If they will have me.).

Just today I decided I wouldn't go to Kissm..because..well lots of reasons.
Which means instead of being here in July for the first time in over three years..I will be gone..forever. Of course none of you guys really care since most of you are gone too.

So maybe it's a good thing I will not be here for those three weeks because there would be nothing to do.

Do you know what isn't a fun thing?
Staying up til 4:30 in the morning cause you know you can sleep in a bit longer than usual in the morning. And then having your cell phone start ringing at 8.
I would have been semi okay with that if it had been a friend and there had been a purpose.
But no. It was a wrong number. And then I could not get back to sleep after that.
And now I feel horrible and I just want to die.
But no I can't do that I have to go watch an hour and a half of boring karate tests of people I don't even know!!!!!!!!!
But I will see Kandace's test at the end so I guess that is a consolation. =).

So, I've been neglecting my blog lately.
I'm sorry. Well not really but..:).

I went on one of my alone date's last night. I went to Harolds again. I ordered the same thing as last time but it did not taste as good. Not at all. So I think next time I am going to Malibu. Since I have not been there in years.

I don't know what else to say.
My life is pretty blah right now.

Actually. I was in class yesterday and we were singing lalallalalala and then the bell rang. And I was so excited cause I had never heard the bell ring to dismiss us before since my teacher always lets us go early. Anyway. I just read that last bit and decided that I am a loser.

Kep. That's all I got for now.
