This morning I read an article about this amazing woman (Bethany) and man (Ryan) so incredibly in love. But just after 6 short weeks of marriage Bethany found her self widowed. Such a tragic love story. Read it.

Sore no more

So it's day 7. The work outs are getting easier and go by a lot faster. In 3 days I will be starting my second level. And possibly measuring myself. :/ I haven't really been sticking with a good diet. My sisters bridal shower was last weekend as well as zach's birthday. Lots of eating! We will see!!

Day 1, really? I have to work out?

Okay so like I said I am starting Jillian Michaels 30 day shred today. I can't find my disc, so I'm going to go to target when I get off to buy a new one. I am the biggest I have ever been in my life and I'm only 21! This personally is not okay! I am in the prime years that I should be fit! So here are my measurements;
Waist: 30"
Right arm:13"
Left arm:13"
Right leg:23"
Left leg:23"
Weight: 156lbs

My goal;
Waist: 25"
Right arm:9"
Left arm:9"
Right leg:15"
Left leg:15"
Weight: 120lbs

This goal is probably not going to happen with just the 30 day shred, I'm sure it will take much more time to see my goal but hey, I just hope to see some results! I hope that after the 30 day shred I can start a hybrid workout with shred and p90x. I will keep you updated as much as possible. It helps me to remember what I see and what is working :) happy summer training all!!

30 days of death

Tomorrow I am going to start Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. Eek! I hate working out! All I can say is I hope that God gives me the will power to give up 40 minutes every day to do my least favorite thing in the world! It will be worth it. I am going to weigh in and measure myself tomorrow. I will post my start and my progress at every level (1,2,3) but no pictures until day 15 ( half way through the program) to see how I have changed since day 1. Wish me luck! I need it ;)

Zach's Birthday

On sunday Zach will be turning 23! I love birthdays so I am excited but he says that now he is just getting old. HA. I paid for him to go skydiving for his birthday. He went this last weekend and LOVED it. I am happy that he had a good time and enjoyed his birthday present. It was quite a bit of money to pay for that 5 minute jump and I want him to be able to open something on his birthday that can stay with in my budget, I have a few ideas up my sleeve. Stay tuned to see my crafty birthday presents for him. :) Here are some pictures from his jump!

Pray for her.

My step Mom Meghan has got me to start following a blog called A little girl who is 7 years old and has been diagnosed with cancer. Tragedy, a beautiful little girl battling cancer for now, the 3rd time. No 7 year old should have to battle so hard to live, she goes in for surgery today. Pray for her and her family. Pray that God has a beautiful plan for this amazing little girl, just like he did for my friend Clayton. Here is Clayton's story, cancer is powerful, but God is more powerful. Love to all my readers.

3,025 miles. 48.2 hours. 12 states.

As of a couple days ago my brother (Michael) has accepted a job in New York. This is a big change for our family. Neither Michael nor I have ever lived more then 4 hours away from our parents or each other. For me I think fear, tears, alone, 8,391,881 people, but this is where my brother and I differ. He thinks happiness, change, opportunities, joy, adventure, smiles, 8,391,881 people who I could help change their lives. My brother has been working with the LGBT non profits since he was 17, a couple years ago took the lead position of GALA San Luis Obispo, being their youngest president in the history of San Luis's GALA. For the past 3 years he has done the AIDS life cycle, which is 7 days of bicycling from San Francisco to Los Angels. In September of 2011 he became a full time working coordinator for ALC and loved it. Now, in a month he will be taking on a 7 month position in New York, as a Ride Manager. I would like to take a moment and say I am so proud to call him my brother. I am lucky to have had someone in my life to teach me from the moment I was born to "Never try to fit in, because you were born to stand out!" He has taught me to fight for what I believe in even if other people think its a joke, never let someone tell you that you cant because you can do what ever you set your mind to. When everyone is saying you cant, prove to them you can. Although I don't see my brother every day, or every week I will miss that I can't just hop in my car and be there in a couple hours. I am so proud of you Michael Beck and so incredibly thankful that God has blessed me to have such an amazing man in my life. I love you so much and I hope you enjoy the next chapter in your life, you deserve it.
