Times, they are a changin'

Okay...not really, but they need to.

I'm needing a change in my life. Nothing too spectacular, just some new scenery.

I've been trying to talk Kevin into getting transferred to St. George so we can move down there. At first I was just talking, got a bug in me that I needed to live there. Now its becoming more and more of a possibility.
(No one freak out yet; nothing is decided, or even anything more than just talked about. But, it turns out that there really may be an opportunity for this to happen. Seriously, please don't freak's really nothing more than a distant possibility at this point.)

Anyway, a change. Maybe a new job, maybe just a hobby. I don't know, but something. I'm working on figuring that out right now. I'm looking at some options, and am going to pursue them and see how they turn out.

In other news:
Me and Kevin are working on getting into an exercise routine. We both need to lose some weight. Its starting to get out of hand :)

We were supposed to start on Monday; full on, get-with-the-program starting. That didn't actually happen but we are still working towards that. The problem is that we don't actually have any space to do said program, so we are having to make space. The only space we have is the second bedroom that is currently just a crap room with a computer in it. So we have to clean it out, re-organize some things, and probably get rid of quite a bit of stuff. As soon as that's done though, it's on! And I think it will actually work this time. Because Kevin is fully on board with me now, which means motivation for both of us....and if we get too lazy, one gets to flick the other one's ear!

But since we haven't been able to start officiallly, we are taking this time to get more active before this thing kicks our ass(es). We got bikes and have been riding them at night, we play tennis on occasion. There is a lot less sitting on the couch all night now.

Also, I have become a vegetarian!

It's only been a week, but I already feel better. Seriously! I'm not going to really get into the why's, but here's the basics: For the most part, meat grosses me out. It actually takes a lot for me to eat it. I started thinking about why meat grosses me out, and came to the realization that its because its meat! It's the flesh of another living thing, that is now dead and you could technically say rotting. Yuck! And it's healthier not to eat meat. There are plenty of other ways to get the vitamins and minerals and protein you need, without adding cholesterol (that you absolutely don't need, and is completely extra) to your diet.

But, yes, it's been a week and I'm still holding strong. It kind of amazed me how much meat I actually do eat, and didn't even realize it until now. I will miss some things, but I think the benefits will greatly make up for that.

I'm still working on a post about our trip to Washington, with pictures. That's why it's taking so long. I can only do it pictures at home, and sometimes I just lose track of time after I get home from work and then suddenly its time for bed. Its coming though, I promise!
