Just 8 lbs. to go!

Lest anyone think that we have given up on our goals I have decided to make a return. With school and work we have been extremely busy, but it is still important to return and report so here it goes:

Weight Loss –
Cecilia – Total: 27 pounds
Ryan – Total: 27 pounds
We are both just 8 pounds away from reaching our goal of 35. We have been slacking of late, but we both re-committed ourselves this week to get the 8 pounds off by December 17th.

Morning & Evening Prayer and Scripture Study –
As always, we are perfect with the evening prayer and study. Yet, we still struggle remembering to say morning prayers, although we are perfect so far this week.

Exercise –
Cecilia – She got a new exercise video last week and she has been tearing it up.
Ryan – I average just over 30 miles per week over the past month and on Saturday I ran 3 miles in 18:30, faster than I ever ran in high school!

Missionary Work –
Jimmy Dean is getting married on Christmas and he will be baptized shortly after that. We go over to his house about once per week.

Temple
General Conference was especially exciting because we found out that we are getting a temple here in Kansas City. That will cut the 3 ½ hour temple trip down to 30 minutes. In the meantime we made it once again to the Winter Quarters temple. What a great experience!
