It's a Twinderful Life

Looking For the Silver Lining in All of Life's Clouds

Life advice.

on September 26, 2012

This morning Steve’s alarm clock on his phone went off a bit earlier than usual. He didn’t hear it until I shook him awake. He then pulled me close for a morning snuggle – one of my favorite times of the day. He’s so warm and peaceful and he always smells so amazing…I wish we could just stay there, wrapped in our deliciously soft and cloud-like sheets and comforter.

The next thing out of his mouth  was so unexpected  and so hilarious that I’ve been giggling about it all day.

“I have to go running…so that I don’t die.”

What the?! Did he just say that? He is the only person (besides my sister) that can be witty so early in the morning, and I died of laughter and thought it was so sweet all at once.

For those of you who don’t know, Steve has Type II Diabetes that we’ve been trying to get under control for a while. We’re usually pretty good about it and Steve tries hard to eat healthy and to exercise often, but the past month or so has been CRAZY with us getting our condo ready to sell, selling it, and then moving in with BreMiah, so he’s been off of his routine. Today was the day he decided to get back into his marathon training (he’s signed  up to do the Salt Lake City Marathon in April 2013), and, in my opinion, it was the perfect statement to help jump start the endeavor.

After thinking about this all day I’ve decided that his statement isn’t just cute and funny, but it’s also good advice for life – we all need to keep moving and stay healthy so that not only do we not die, but we live to the best of our ability! I’m feeling inspired and more committed to moving more and eating like a caveman!

And Sweetie, I don’t want you to die either and am so proud of you for ripping yourself from the warmth of our cocoon so that we can be together for a good long while yet. This is just one of the many reasons why I love you so.

Have a fantastic Wednesday everyone!

    This made me happy! You two are so cute and I am really glad you are both a great example to our family of eating healthy. By the way, I was wondering if you guys are still doing your weekly weigh-ins at work until Halloween. I love your blog! Keep writing 🙂
