twenty six.

it was my lovers birthday yesterday. hes 26. thats right closer to 30 than to 20. when did we grow up? oh wait... we havent. when did we get old. oh wait... we didnt. just sam!! :)

we were joking that {our friend's little girl} brielle looked like she was a part of our family... when we are 70 we will look back and wonder which of our kids this one is!
we had a small sunday celebration and just enjoyed being together.
sam got a backpacking sleeping bag! he just happened to get two of them for some reason {oh yeah, because i needed one too!}
and a boogie board. its so fun to be by the ocean.

happy birthday sam. i know it was low key, but i hope you still had a good day! I LOVE YOU!

in other news i posted my first print for quotable monday on sissyprint!! go check it out!

let the game begin.

over the past few years i have slowly let my life and my body get out of control.

there have been a few times that i have made the effort to try and loose weight, but i never truly gave it my all.

being in a swimsuit everyday sure changes the way you feel about how you look.

i have been looking at pictures and at my lifestyle wondering how i allowed it to get so unhealthy.

im not obese. but im bigger than ive ever been and its uncomfortable. im not happy with the way i look or the way i feel, so i have made the decision to CHANGE.

over the past few months my mom took part in an 8 week challenge. it not only focused on how she ate, but her exercise, her sleep habits, and an overall healthy lifestyle. she did it. and she succeeded. in 8 weeks my mom lost 25 pounds and she looks like a BOMBSHELL! seriously she is a hottie! in fact for a girls camp activity she and the other stake young women leaders have to wear prom dresses- i just got a picture via my cell phone of my mom in a prom dress taryn wore in high school! WHAT??? that is skinny!

anyways... tomorrow is the day i start this journey. want to know the rules? they seem simple enough.

i have altered some of the rules according to myself and my timeframe.

-you get one free day a week where you can break all the rules! :)
-eat 1800 (or less) calories a day
- no sugar. no white sugar or honey
-exercise at least an hour a day
-get at least 7 hours of sleep a night
-drink at least 3 liters of water a day
-for the 8 weeks, take one bad habit and drop it for a good habit.
-list 100 things you are grateful for each day- keep a gratitude journal

the rules seem pretty simple, and i think they will help refresh all aspects of my life.

im excited! wish me luck!
