Long Time, I Know

It has been quite a long time since I posted. I'm sure you are all chomping at the bit (see, I am from Texas!) to know what's been going on in the wonderful world of Jennifer. :-)
I am still on my diet. Well, the diet portion is more of a lifestyle change than anything. I'm not necessarily dieting. I'm trying to change the way I eat and what I eat. My boyfriend is forever saying, "Are you really finished?" when I eat half of my meal. But that's what I do. I eat until I'm full and then I stop. Why couldn't I have learned that trick, oh, say, 20 years ago? He's going to start making me order the children's plates when we go out. But in reality, that's all I need. Really, that's all anyone needs if you ask me.
But I have gotten on this exercising kick. I know! My mom and Kaleena were in town this weekend and my mom kept saying, "Where is my daughter!" I'm doing all kinds of crazy things, like eating tomatoes and German food. And exercising. Outside! I told Jeff the other day, "You know, I'm really sad that it took me 31 years to realize that I don't mind being outside at all."
But back to this exercise thing. I walk as often as I can. I've got voice lessons every night right after work so it's sometimes hard to fit it in, but I do my best. And yesterday Jeff and I went on a hike through the woods. Again, can you even believe that? I keep telling him that people back home would never believe that I was outside, much less hiking through the woods. I shoulda taken a picture and posted it for all of you to see. Let me tell you just how beautiful I am all hot and sweaty! I only nearly fell off the bluff once. Jeff grabbed me, so I guess he likes me enough to want to keep me around for a while! :-)
'Till next time!
