Another week in paradise

I just love this picture. Baxter walked over to the couch the other night and just flopped his head down on Rick's chest. Rick wrapped his arm around Baxie and scratched his belly. You can tell that they are both very content to stay just where they are.

Running this week - well running/walking, getting better. My legs felt like they weighed a ton this morning, but what a mental boost is gives me just getting up and moving. I have worked out 3 days this week, missed yesterday, but will go again tomorrow. It makes me excited to continue and, hopefully soon, start to notice an improvement both in distance/time and spare tire deflation.

Shay and I have talked about our desire to run in next year's 1/2 marathon. This year was the first and they had over 500 participants, some of which were friends of mine. It started at Woods Ranch, up Cedar Canyon and came down into Cedar, then around some city streets before finishing at the Main Street Park.

Then there's the Redrock Relay that starts at Brian Head and goes through Cedar, Veyo, St. George and ends up in Springdale. This is a team relay and you can have up to 12 team members, and we think we should do this too. We could form a team of Bonzo's and Cowan's and call ourselves the "cowabonzo's", I think that's pretty clever. Hahaha! Anyway, I need to keep working out to get in better shape.

Scripture study continues. I'm in 2 Nephi Chapter 10. I need to push it a little so I can finish Friday, October 1st. It's funny, I'm getting excited to start all over again on General Conference weekend.

So, how's your week going?

Okay, I've been a slacker. I only worked out once this week - ONE TIME. My spare tire isn't deflating very quickly.

On a positive note, I'm doing very well with my Book of Mormon reading. I'm in Heleman and should finish right before General Conference.

I just finished the 3rd Hunger Games book, Mockingjay. Enjoyed this book as much as the others. I read a spoiler about the ending on Facebook, but I still enjoyed the book. I wasn't quite as shocked about Prim dieing, and that was a good thing.

Next week - regrouping! I'll keep myself posted on my blog.

Mean, ornery Monday

Do you ever have days when you are just plain mean and ornery? Well I guess I do, and today is one of them. I'm only fit for my own company. I'd better put on my big girl panties and get over it.
