7.5 Weeks Out

Last weekend was a great time - Dave and I went camping in the Shenandoah Mountains aka "Blue Ridge." We had two killer hikes on Sunday that he called "stairmaster from hell" and I enjoyed (maybe a little too much!) some hot dogs and S'mores!

I am on the straight and narrow from here on out. I'm down to 146.1 (another half pound) and have been carb-depleting this week for a photo shoot tomorrow. The shoot will be fun, but I'm more eager to see my dieting progress so far since I don't have any pics yet!

Fitness routine is coming together. At practice yesterday, despite carb depletion, I had a crisp routine that flowed with lots of strength and energy. Endurance is still kickin' my butt but that is normal. Got 9 more weeks until my guest performance which is plenty of time to build it up (did it in 3 1/2 last year - THAT was suicide!).

Dave and I made a BIG decision within the past 2 weeks... I will quit my job at the Bureau and come back to working from home full-time with the Fit Figures business, and PT'ing at the gym and in-home part-time. We both feel that this is the direction God is leading me/us so that we can spend more time with each other and focus on keeping our marriage strong and healthy. Being a natural overachiever, I always pull myself in every direction and stretch myself too thin. I didn't realize the negative impact it was having on the rest of my life! I am excited and more than happy to give up my gobmint job if it means peace and stability in my life. Please pray for us that God provides what we need financially as we transition through this major step of life.

Thanks for reading! :)
