My life is so full of blessings I am not sure where to start...
***Holly and I walking the shores of South Lake***
I have had such an amazing week and a half. I consider myself a happy person who can find the positive, I don't complain much and I can normally be found in the center of attention (LOL) but this mission I am on seems to keep my head in a great place. I feel my commitment to taking better care of myself and keeping myself on a more regimented schedule I am actually enjoying every day more then I thought I could.
I had a week of some butt kicking workouts! Along with the Body Rock workout the cardio has returned! Again it was a great surprise how much endurance I have built and it is not as mentally challenging as it used to be. Spending time on the treadmill feels really good and has been a nice addition to the strength training. One thing I have noticed is exercise within you limits. I have played sports since I was four years old and my joints have some major wear and tear, so word to the wise don't try to get completely parallel in a one legged squat... Despite my need to be competitive I have to listen to my body and a blown knee would really derail my mission! So push yourself but don't over do it...
The workouts have been a great stress relief and allow me to clear my head each day, as a teen alcohol and drug counselor, this is priceless. Each day I wake up feeling calm and rested. When I get to work, I can focus on the client I am with and stay present for them.

In my personal life I keep my eyes open and my mind aware of how truly blessed I am for the special people I have in my life. Kenny and I had an awesome first date with our dear friends Corrie and Brian. Yes I say first date because it is the first time we dined together in dinner party style with the Aggers. This day I decided to skip my workout but got in plenty of biceps curls bouncing, snuggling and peek-a-booing with the most adorable 15 lbs. of joy, Corrie and Brian's baby, Drew! I just love him :)
Then I closed out the week with a fabulous event! A Wine Walk that included 4 houses with delicious treats and of course wine. It was a big success each house was visited for about 2 hours and the progression was themed like a meal... The crowd of people was great and well rounded, including my favorite Skagg Heather!!! Heather moved from Tahoe 2 1/2 years ago now and I miss her dearly but truly enjoy any time I get to spend with her. As far as I can tell there weren't too many casualties and I won't name names... With all my workout efforts not eating like it is my last meal is becoming effortless. I had a great time at the Wine Walk but didn't not feel like a stuffed myself costing me my workouts for the week. I included a couple photos to prove I am not a gym rat and actually have a life!
Closed the week out with some George Clinton funk and my first day snowboarding in 2 years! Wow what was i thinking I really miss being on the mountain???
