The Long Journey

Losing weight and getting healthy is definitely a tough challenge but it is one I have decided I am going to embrace. I've been overweight for years and now I've decided to kick myself in the butt, get off the couch and do something about it. My start date was May 16, but i haven't really been doing much since after my sister got married. I was doing the 30 Day Shred by Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels, what a tough workout, it's twenty minutes of the hardest things I've ever done. It's great for building muscle and losing inches, now I am doing a Leslie Sansone Four mile Walk Away the Pounds video. It's actually really fun and it goes by quick. She has you using every muscle in your body, even your face muscles because she makes it fun to workout and gets you to even smile while exercising. Imagine that! My goal is 60 pounds in one year. Can I do it? Of course I can! Will it be easy? No way! I like exercising but I need to change my diet and eat healthier and eat less. I think that's the hardest part for me. With the help of my boyfriend and my family and friends I know I can embrace this challenge and succeed. I won't quit and I won't back down even if it takes longer than I expect.

Your love is like a river peaceful and deep...

Since I no longer have Facebook I needed to post somewhere how wonderful my boyfriend is. Today is our 8 month anniversary and since we can't see each other this week, he sent me a BEAUTIFUL rose bouquet. It's gorgeous and looks wonderful in the living room. I'll have to upload a picture soon.

Na Na Na Na I'm gonna start a fight

Okay, I'm not gonna start a fight, but I seem to like to entitle my blogs with song names and since this has been stuck in my head the last few weeks, I decided to use this. Not too much has happened in the last few weeks. School started about a month ago and I can't wait for it to be over so summer can be here. Somehow I got the flu on Friday night so I've been sick all weekend. I'm feeling a bit better and hopefully I'm all better by tomorrow since I have a test to take. My wonderful boyfriend got a job at a Ford dealership and he starts this Friday, I'm so happy for him. I can't wait till Valentine's Day to see him, because I miss him so much. I did my obversation for my child development class which was lots of fun. Those little kids are so cute. Hopefully this week turns out to be better and I do well on my test and next time I will have better things to blog about.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

It's already Christmas time once again. It seems like just yesterday that I was opening my Christmas presents. The semester is winding down, thankfully. I have three midterms this week then it's break and time to recuperate before the next semester, which I'm nervous about since I will actually be taking real classes on campus and harder ones. I also will only be babysitting the twins twice a week so I'm probably going to need to find another small job. Right now I am trying to procrastinate and not do my homework and since I have no facebook anymore I figured I would update my blog.
I love Christmas time, the decorations, the music which I always forget that you can really praise the Lord and worship Him using Christmas hymns, and I love spending time with friends and family. I think I also feel so much more generous during this holiday season with donating to certain causes which I should probably do more often. Allen and I went and donated blood yesterday which was lots of fun and it feels good being able to help those who have been hurt and need blood transfusion, it only takes a little bit of time and you get so much in return.
Allen is amazing and I am so blessed to have him. He treats me like a princess and looks past the faults in me and sees me for who I am on the inside. He's also great about keeping me in check in my walk with God and just makes me so much happier. Sometimes when I am with him it feels like I am in a dream or something because I don't think I deserve him at all yet I know he's mine and he loves me. :)
I am also blessed to be able to serve such a wonderful God. A God who loves me unconditionally and sees the good in me and forgives me when I make mistakes. He gave me the greatest gift of all which is my salvation and sometimes it's hard to remember that is the true meaning of Christmas, not gifts or music, or even spending time with family. But being thankful for the gift God gave us of his only Son who could die on the cross for us and forgive us of our sins and one day when we die we can go to heaven. God is so amazing and I am so blessed to have all that He has given me. I cannot wait to see what this new year has in store for me and what I can do to help make a difference in His world.

My 19th year

Well the school semester is once again slowly winding down and soon it will be Christmas break. Hard to believe the year is almost over all ready. Last weekend was my birthday and Allen took me to san fran. We went to the Ripley's Believe it or Not museum, the Alcatraz, and the wax museum. It was super fun, I had a great time. Allen is such an awesome boyfriend and spoils me way too much. Afterwards he took me to Chevy's for dinner. It was such a wonderful day. Probably the best birthday I have ever had. :) God has truly blessed me with him as well as a great family and friends. Saturday night I had a birthday party with my friends. We went bowling and then to pizza later. I'm not the best at bowling, but it was so fun seeing my friends I haven't seen in a while and having Allen meet all my friends. He was so good with them though and they all seemed to like him. Thankfully he was also nice to my one friend who most people don't treat the way they should. I'm glad he's so nice to everyone and makes them feel accepted. I'm totally falling for him lol. This is also the first blog I have posted on my new labtop I bought last week thursday. I thought I'd spoil myself for my birthday. Wow I was just reading my old blogs about other guys in my life and I realized how lame I was too like them. I now have this absolutely amazing boyfriend and all because I left it in God's hands. I should have done that long ago.
Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever

Summer Happenings

This summer has been full of events. I now have a boyfriend :D. He's my first bf and he is awesome. On Father's Day I learned I was going to be an aunt, which I've wanted to be forever, unfortunately two weeks ago my sister-in-law had a miscarriage :(, me and her just laid in her bed all weekend and watched movies together. They can try again in another month or so, everyone will be praying things go well with that. On a happier note my cousin Liz just had her baby on the 16th! After losing a lot of blood during labor, Liz was able to return home on Saturday night. We went to visit on Sunday and Liz and little Mason are doing well. Mason Daniel is adorable and so small, I guess I will just have to pretend to be his, Hazel, and Kenny's aunt for now.
My summer speech class is finally over. That class was lots of fun and I actually enjoyed it suprisingly. I'll try to update a little more for my sake of remembering what's been happening in my life.
"Count your many blessings one by one and you'll be suprised what the Lord has done."

Turn Around Bright Eyes

I almost forgot I had this thing. Hmm life has been interesting lately, I started my first day of summer school today, speech class not too excited about it but mar is in it so it should be fun. I can't wait for it to be over lol. Yesterday I met this really cool guy that I have been talking to. He came to my church and we went to lunch with my family he met the whole family too aunts, uncles, cousins, cousins kids, as well as my sister and my parents. The family all liked him especially my little cousin, so we will see where that one goes. I should be focusing on God right now more than guys though.
I'm excited to see what this new school year has in store and what God has planned for me. I see that my best friend is no longer posting so goodbye to her. I will continue to read Kaimelar and the many other people I follow on heres blog.
