- The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

It started the night of my birthday when Matt made me Lasagna and dessert. I had felt fine all day but as soon as I was done eating dessert my tummy started making the craziest noises. I won't go into details but I was sick all night and missed two days of work. It wasn't food poisoning...believe me I wish I would have recovered that quickly. Matt was a good doctor though, running to the store early in the morning to get me 7up. I'm still stuck to eating toast and chicken noodle soup but at least I'm able to eat something. (Wanda this parts for you) The first night when Matt was pouring me some 7up I heard him stirring it with a spoon so I asked him why he was stirring my 7up and he said that's how my mom use to do it to get some of the bubbles out. It was very cute. So now when he is sick I'm guessing he's going to request me to stir his 7up.
So I am back to work and though I am not fully energized because I am still down those 6 lbs, I am feeling a ton better. Just no one plan on me coming over for Lasagna and cheesecake anytime soon.

On the way home we stopped in Edinburgh that has a huge outlet mall and did some shopping. I bought some baby stuff for my nephew on the way and Matt bought some much needed new running shoes.
The "thanks" part of this post has to do with the Biggest Loser Competition. Matt and I were just saying the other night that we couldn't believe how far we have come in 5 weeks and we owe a big thanks to Kel. If she never would have thought of the idea we would still be sitting on the couch thinking about it. This competition is just what I needed, even if I don't win it. Thanks Kel!
I also owe a big thanks to Matt's cousin Megan. I have been jogging while listening to the radio for a while now and all the commercials and talking distract me when I'm running. I remembered that I had a little MP3 Player that Megan helped me snatch up last year at a X-mas party. It has been the greatest thing for me! I stay so focused and have increased everything this past week. Thanks Megan for helping me scheme to get that!
I also need to give thanks to Brooke for all of her advice to get me through my week of exhaustion. It has been better and I learned to listen to my body more and change things up if need be.

There isn't really too much to say about week 3 of the biggest loser, it was pretty steady and I was able to jog at least 30 minutes without stopping for every workout. Week 4 is another story. I thought this was suppose to be easier with time but a major case of exhaustion has kicked in. Sunday started out ok. We hiked a 6 mile trail in Terre Haute and I even ran a little of it. But every workout this week I have had to force myself to jog the 30 minutes that I did all last week. I think my body is telling me that I need a day off since I workout 6 days a week but I'm mentally not ready for that. I can't figure out what's going on. I've tried drinking more water and stretching more but I am still very tired. Friday will be my rest day and I am looking forward to it.
This past weekend was our first chance to test ourselves while visiting family in Terre Haute. For three weeks we have been in our routine at home and been able to still eat healthy on the weekends. We did pretty good this weekend and there wasn't an increase on the scale from it.
This next weekend is an even bigger test when we go to Fowler where there's a lot of good food and we usually stay there longer. Fowler in the fall at my mother-in-laws could be trouble, but luckily she's in the competition too.

We both put on a few pounds before the competition started on purpose to get our weight up and then I think we put our bodies into shock when we started working out so much. A lot of the weight lost is from sweating so much. We have been eating a lot better too. I cut out pop and a lot of extra calories and we are both watching our portions. I don't think I have drank so much water and ate so many fruits and veggies in my whole life. But we both feel great and I hope to stick with this. That's pretty much our strategy, getting our butts moving and eating a whole lot better. He's been running more distance wise and I got to the point where I can start jogging for part of my workout. It all seems to be working for us.

I tried to take some video at the concert but I felt like one of those jerks who distracts everyone else with their camera so at least here is some audio of the last song he played.

Saturday we went to a Sondgeroth Reunion/B-day party at Racoon lake. It was a lot of fun and I wish I had pictures from the day. Matt was really excited to hang out with this side of his family that he doesn't get to see as much. We spent most of the day on the lake and only came back to eat. There were a lot of little funny happenings that ended up just being bonding experiences with his family. The food was wonderful, the people were wonderful, and I'm really glad that we went.

This summer we have been pretty active around Lebanon for once and trying to get involved in the town that we have lived in for three years. We went to the 2 week long 4th of July Festival here in town and enjoyed the activites and now the Boone County Fair is going on. We use to say that we were hanging out with the "locals" and now I think it hit us that we are the "locals".
With the summer heat kicking in we tried to do some indoor stuff today. We went to the Indianapolis Musuem of Art to see the Exhibit from Egypt. It had mummy tombs and art and a lot of really amazing things. Egypt is one of the places I would love to visit but I was hoping to get a little taste of it just in case I never make it there. Matt was a good sport eventhough he doesn't have as much of an appreciation for art but I do think he appreciated the history of all of it. Besides he got to go to Rock Bottom Brewery afterwards. We love that place. We also went to see the new batman movie tonight. It was excellent eventhough it was long.
Tomorrow will probably be a wonderful lazy Sunday since we were gone all day!
