Yep, me too.

This is a thankful time of year, and I feel inclined to add my own thoughts.

I'm thankful for...

  • Mom & Dad for letting me bunk with them for a few months whilst I figure out where I want to be and what I want to do with my life.
  • My co-workers - especially the ones motivating me to get my booty in gear and do P90X!
  • My friends from the ward - especially Katy for motivating me to do the triathlon and to keep reaching for things I never thought I'd do physically (Santa Run comin' up!)
  • My nephews for thinking I'm cool and fun, even when I don't feel it.
  • The Bombay House. If you've been there, you know what I'm talkin' 'bout.
  • My brother Conn for making me feel oh-so youthful by still calling me Erbear.
  • My Slanket.
  • Melanee, for being one of the top roommates/landlords E-VAH! I thank you for the talks, the laughs, and the understanding. I miss you already.
  • Single life.
  • The hope of non-single life.
  • The hope of family life.
  • Five On The Fly.
  • The friends who come to shady sports bars and endure the drunks and hoochie dancers to support Five On The Fly. I thank you all, a lot.
  • My Bombay friends. You know who you are.
  • The discovery/introduction of new music that still moves and creates new memories for me.
  • Falling for someone and getting my heart broken, but thankful to know that I can fall in the first place - difficult as it may be for it to end.
  • The hope that I won't get my heart broken, but that I may actually fall in love and be loved in return.
  • Christmas lights.
  • Cheesy Christmas music - except for 'Christmas Shoes'. I really can't stand that song.
  • Having brothers and sisters to just hang with.
  • H.F. - especially H.F.

The list shall go on another time. I'm thankful for all of you that even take a peek at my wee blog.

Have any of you tried this program? Holy moly, it's brutal. But, I LOVE IT!! Every morning at 6:30 I meet up with a group of friends from work to do this mother of all work-outs. For one thing, I am not a morning person by any means, so this is the first hurdle. I actually have to get up at 5:45 to get there on time. Oh, and did I mention it's a little on the chilly side in the morning? Yep. Then, of course, the program is tough. Very tough. However, I'm doing it.
People, I.AM.DOING.IT!!
It has been a long time since I've been dedicated to doing something physically like this (with the exception of the Tri). Every day I find the motivation to get myself out of bed and get myself there. Each morning when the alarm clock goes off, I really just want to throw it across the room and sleep forever, but I don't. I am grateful for the motivation - wherever it is coming from. I don't have any great goal. Like the traithlon, I just want to finish. I want to know that I did it. Losing weight would be a plus, but it's not absolutely necessary. I want to know that I'm helping my body be a little healthier than it was before. Plus, I have to tell you, I just feel good. It's nice to tell people that I've been up since the crack of dawn doing some serious exercising. I think they might even respect me.

There's a kind of glow in my face, and a spring in my step.

Is it love?

It's P90X, baby!

Single and Tri-ing!

The amazing Divas!

One of my best friends from high school days was doing the tri too!

119, yo.

So much to say… well, I FINISHED! Yes, I, Erincita finished my very first triathlon! All I can say is, I’m gonna do it again! You know, agreeing to do the triathlon in the first place made me nervous, to say the least. However, knowing that I was doing it with 9 other girls gave me great motivation. Not only that, but doing it for a cause (Drew) was a big deal for me. I am still having a hard time believing that I really did it. It wasn’t easy, that’s for sure, but I now know what I’m made of and will do it again.
Next time I’ll definitely have a road bike instead of a mtn. bike. Oh, and I’ll bring back-up just in case I get a flat like I did on Saturday . Such a bummer, for real!
Friends, I am proud. You will definitely see more entries in the future of the coming triathlons. I hear it’s an addiction, and I think I’m hooked!

Friends... I solicit your help.

Dear Friends,

I know a guy. His name starts with a Dr and ends with an ew. He is amazing, talented, kind, funny and so many other things. This friend of mine has cancer and needs help paying for his incredibly costly meds. Check out his blog and get to know him @ - chances are, you'll love him too.

This weekend a few of Drew's biggest fans and I are doing a triathlon to help raise money for his cause. If you are able to donate any amount of $$, please either let me know or go to and make a contribution under

I thank you for any help you can give. He's definitely worth it, folks.

Many thanks!
