As young adults, there is so much expected of us. There are days where you have to multi-task things that really shouldn't be done at the same time; Like filing your nails while driving. I'm a believer in enjoying everything you do and never doing anything simply because you think you "should." But this doesn't apply if you're a slacker. Being lazy is lame.

I am grateful for...

Home Teachers.

Even though I am in a single's ward, I have been blessed with good men for home teachers. Because of the fluid nature of a single's ward, the men assigned to me changes often. There have been times I have called my home teachers for blessings, and they are always ready and willing. The men are honest and worthy Priesthood holders who are able to perform a Priesthood duty at any moment. The message they bring is always carefully thought out with questions and personal experiences that fill my home with the Spirit. I am grateful for the worthy men who are willing to serve the Lord. I am grateful for their sincere interest and love. Thank you good home teachers.

Calorie Counting

Last week I signed up for a program on It's called MyPlate and you set up how many calories you want to take in every day. It will help you predict how many calories to eat depending on how much weight you want to lose/gain or maintain your current weight. The resource is incredible. You type in what you've eaten and it will tell you how many calories were in it. It has all the fast food and store brands to just generic food. It also will keep track of your exercise. It gives an estimate of how many calories you've burned depending on the activity from studying, coaching a sport, pilates or running. It will also give you an estimate of sodium, cholesterol, protein, sugar etc. in everything you've eaten. I highly recommend this site if you're looking to keep better track of food and exercise.
