Where's the beef?

So my excitement for yesterday was making beef jerky. I had never attempted that before and finally decided to use the jerky seasoning I bought a while ago that is MSG-free (I have sworn off store bought jerky because the MSG seems to sometimes aggravate my crazy heart beats). It took longer than it was supposed to to dry out in the oven and then got a little soggy again when I put it in ziploc baggies and left it overnight, but all in all, not too bad.

Had another church meeting last night (poor Aaron has had night-time kid duty almost every weeknight this month so far) and am actually pretty excited about being chair of the missions committee this year. I think we have come up with some good ideas for projects...we will see how it all pans out.

And the last of my exciting news for the day...wait for it....wait for it...
I am FINALLY joining the gym. I decided to try to the one here in town for 3 months even though they don't have childcare. I did line up babysitters for two afternoons a week and since they are open 24 hours I figure I can find a time to go another couple of times a week when Aaron is home. And if I don't get started on this training for the 60 mile walk I will spend more time being peeled off of the walk route than walking anyway.

Some of the best homemade jerky I've had was made by a friend of mine using a dehydrator. It was so good, I harrass him frequently asking when the next batch will be coming up!

You go, girl!
I work out three mornings a week at my husband's training studio and always feel soooo good afterward.
OK, I usually feel like I'm going to die during the workout. But I'm always glad when Kevin pushes me harder and keeps me going.
