I made some breakthroughs this weekend so I must share.

1.  I finally found out what beer I like.  I love porters.  I always felt like Julia Roberts from Runaway Bride with the eggs.  I always ordered what Sam was having.  I knew I liked darker beers, but I never would remember the ones I like best.  So now I know.

2.  I've been so stagnant with my skiing it was driving me nuts.  I knew what I needed to do, I just couldn't figure it out.  Sam's lovely tip of reaching out with my poles helped me to finally be able to ski bumps well.  I am now faster than a snail's pace on the bumps.  This was huge, I have been skiing at the same level since I lived in Colorado 3 years ago, I just couldn't get any better.  We had a delightful sunny Saturday of skiing.  
3.  I found the greatest knitting tool at a local sewing store.  They are the Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles.  I've been enjoying knitting, but I'm annoyed when I have to buy a new set of circular needles for each project.  It can get spendy, and quite frustrating if I have the right needle, but because of my gauge I need the next needle size up.  So this little kit is a full set of every possible combination of knitting needles you can imagine.  It has interchangeable parts.  It comes in a nice portable case.   And you know me, being the cheap skate that I am, I was able to use a 40% off coupon because my local store accepts competitors coupons.  So I am a happy knitting camper.  I no longer have to stash needles.  I have them all at my fingertips with this handy kit.  So cool!  

4.  I am no longer going to pretend that I care about what I eat.  I'm not going to say, oh I better not have that.  No, I am going to enjoy the fact that I'm 25.  One day (not too far away) my metabolism won't be working with me so well, and I am going to think that I was crazy for ever saying I was getting fat or thinking that.  I am going to try to be healthy, but if I get a crazy yummy fattening coffee drink I will always say yes to the whipped cream and not feel guilty.  I am thankful God made me 6'1".  I can eat a lot of food, if I were 5'1" I would be a fatty!

I love #4 Bek. I had one of those moments today...I was sitting in my boring EKG class and decided I wanted a starbucks icee drink and what the heck a bag of lovely smelling popcorn they were selling in the lobby. NO guilt, just pleasure....I did take the stairs however. I wanna eat what I want but I also would like to fall in love with working out so eating wont you think its possible?

One more thing...I tried some great beer last weekend too while Michelle and Dave were here (they are experts). The only kind I really dont care for to much is a really hoppy beer...that is unless its going along with a burger or something.
