Walking it Out!

So part of my new job requires me to run some errands on campus. So every day at a certain time, I gather up my folders and make my rounds. On foot. Our university is pretty large, well, really large. I have set offices I go to each day and round trip the errands alone add up to 45 minutes. I do this 5x a week. Well I have to tell you, I have been at it for 2 weeks now and wow can I tell the difference on how out of shape I was in when I started. Since I have been walking it out I definitely feel the strength and tone in my legs and overall I feel so much better. My first two days I was definitely sucking wind, but now, its a breeze. Also, incorporating lots of water I notice that I am sweating less that normal. That is nice. I am so thankful I started when I did because these Oklahoma summers tend to get pretty warm and extremely humid. Now that I am getting used to the walk it should be a walk in the park (no pun intended) when those nasty days commence..


On top of that, t-ball is in full swing and so we are keeping pretty busy as a family. I am glad the kids and I are out of school for a few months and going to try to enjoy some family time and road trips this summer. Also, we are, as a family, going to be doing nightly walks. Yep, loving the walking.

Well, that is all that is new in our part of the world. Life has been very fruitful for us and I am thankful for the blessings that have been passed along to us. Taking things one day at a time and soaking in all that is good. 

Peace to you...:)

Back in the Saddle!


It's been a few since I have posted a blog and thought I had better sit down for a minute and say hi! Life has been pretty hectic lately, but finally summer break has come. I finished my last classes this past Friday and must say I have never been so glad for classes to be over! I was starting to feel very overwhelmed with everything that had been going on in my life..But now, I can breathe…

So what’s the hap you ask? Well, let’s start with there is no more karate. The kids quickly lost interest and to be quite honest it was getting costly and with those two factors we decided to let it go. Maybe down the road someday if they become interested in it we can re-visit the idea. I decided to start my Scentsy business and it is off to a great start. Skylar is still in Girl Scouts and absolutely loves it and Jacob is now in t-ball & enjoying every minute of it. They will wrap up this school year on May 18th and I think they too are very much ready for a break.

Some good news is that I finally found a job and am excited to say it is on campus where I will be attending in the fall.  Part of my job requires me to walk about 20 minutes each way across campus and I am excited to have the exercise incorporated AND to get paid for getting for it as well.  
So that is really about it for now. Things have slowed down a bit, life is back to normal and we are happy. Isn’t that really all that matters?  Glad to be back in the saddle again. Hope this post finds you all doing well!
