    what a great post and congratulations! I too have just started getting active and I’m 40- so you have 10 years on me! I too have decided we need to get active as a family – one of my main motivations is that I don’t want my son to get totally obsessed with video games. He is already REALLY into them. It should be interesting since we are now in China with its challenging air, but we do have pools! Anyway just wanted to give you some props!

      Thank you! One of the reasons I’m starting now instead of later is that I want to build good habits with the kids while they’re young. The toddler’s already really into princess cartoons, and while I wouldn’t say I want to curtail that (the TV can be a useful babysitter while I am, say, trying to get dinner on the table), I definitely want her to know that there’s lots of fun to be had outside too.

    First of all – congratulations and I send you all the encouragement I can muster from Muscat! That’s so great. Second – I only recently found your blog and It’s been lovely to read. So, nice to e-meet you :) Third – my favorite, favorite cookbook of all time EVEN if you aren’t a vegetarian is Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian”. Not to be too melodramatic but he completely changed the way I see vegetables (and beans and grains for that matter).

    Anyway, good luck with everything

      I love Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything,” and the vegetarian edition’s been on my wish list for a while. I’ve said it many times before, the amazing selection of vegetables here in DC is one of the best parts about spending several months here for training. I’ll definitely pick up a copy of the cookbook before heading out to Jerusalem (another great city for lovers of produce).

    I forgot to mention that those cookbooks are on an app now! Kind of awesome for cooking on the go (or out of a welcome kit..) as we are want to do in this lifestyle :).

    Is Jerusalem your next tour? My husband and I were graduate students there and it was one of our most memorable overseas exeriences. Best wishes
