Working Out

After work today I did something I've never done. I went to a personal trainer. Not going to lie I'm already pretty sore. I learned a lot and had a nice workout.

I'm hoping to drop the sixty pounds I have left lose. I get more exited everytime I get closer to my goal. I can't wait til I get to where I need to be.

My life as of now!

My life is different than what I planned when I finished highschool. I was planning to be a teacher and this should have been my past year of college. I have changed my major many times and settled on Business Management. I should be down by spring of 2012.

I wasn't planning on staying where I am working. But I love the people there. They have always got your back and help you through whatever hard time you are going through.

One of the other changes in my life is, I finally moved out of my parents. It is nice to be out on my own. I'be had to grow up a lot in the last couple years. It isn't bad everyone has to do it. And we all have to do it for different reasons as well.

Have you had any major changes in your life the past year?

Have you ever felt lost or confused? Not sure which road to go down? That's where I'm at right now. My life has changed so much in the last couple years. I feel like I don't know who I am or what I want anymore.

I'm not sure what I want to do with the rest of my life, which sucks because I feel like everyone around me has it figured out. When I finished high sfhool, I thought I knew what I wanted. I was going to be a teacher and should be finishing my degree this year. Well things changed. I don't want to be a teacher know but I don't know what I want to do. I had to take some breaks from school, wasn't planning on that either. I don't regret it though. I got to spend more time with Dad.

I guess I'm writing on here so that I can find myself. Maybe by writing this all down I can figure out who and what I want to become.

Today's topic is a T.V. show. I have picked Friends to write about. I was given some of the seasons for Christmas and have started watching them. I forgot how funny the show is and how crazy they are. I am now on season 3. I guess part of the reason I love the show, is I grew up with it. It was on for most of my life and still has reruns on. What show did you grow up watching? Who was your favorite friend or one of your favorite memories from the show?

How I Met Your Mother

I feel like this show has been on forever, but it still makes you laugh. If you haven't seen the show, every episode starts out, with older Ted telling a story to his two teenagers. The stories are always about Ted and his four friends and their lives at our time. The whole point is to tell Ted's childern about how he met their mother. There are always funny stories. The reruns make you laugh just as much too. So, if you need a good laugh tune in to How I Met Your Mother. You can find it on at many times and places.

Park and a Movie

Yesterday I went to Happy Hollow Park. I went up there with my friend and had a great time. It was a great day for a walk in the woods. That is what I love about that park, it has many nice trails. You can take a walk on a nice paved trail or a walk through the roads.
The other part of my blog is about the movie Red. It is a great movie starring Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman. It is about an ex CIA agent, who has a hit out on him. Watch as he gets his other ex CIA friends take on the new CIA.

Smoking Ban

I am getting ready to give a speech in about 2 hours, and it is over smoking bans. I am for them as long as there are places such as bars where you can still smoke. I don't think that we need to have smoke everywhere, and where kids don't have a choice to be around it or not. That is why I don't mind it in a bar, I am 22 years old. If I don't like it, I can get up and go to one without smoking. I think that making it a state wide ban is a good idea. I think that it will be good for us all in the long run. What do you think about it?

Sister Wives

I have been watching this show for a while now. It is about a family out in Utah, that have a different kind of family life. They believe in polygamy. The husband had three wives at the start of the first season and was courting one more. By the end of that season he had married her and was up to four wives. The first season was about the other three wives dealing with all of there issues about adding another wife. The end of the season has them all getting along and accepting her. The start of the second season starts with them going public on the morning talk shows. So far, this one is them dealing with the aftermath of them going public, with the start of an investigation. I think this is a really fun show to watch so if you are interseted, tune in on Sundays on TLC.

My first travel piece was Milwaukee. It wasn't a bad drive, only about four hours. It was so nice to see my family and get to go try and see new things. I went to on a drive by the beach. It was really nice looking out at Lake Michigan. The day I went it was so nice and  clear outside. I also tried a sushi place called Izumi. It was some really good food. It was on the east side about a mile or so from the lake. On Sat. I went to Gurnee Mills. It is a big outlet mall. It was really nice and fun. There were lots of good deals there and many stores. I saw at of the city and it was nice. I hope to do more on my next trip there.

First Movie Pick

My first pick for a movie is Murder in the First. It stars Kevin Bacon and Christian Slater. Bacon plays Henri Young, a man being held at the prison of Alcatraz. He was sent there after stealing five dollars from a grocery store that doubled as a post office. After being at Alcatraz for some time, Henri tries to escape. The attempt failed, when one of the other guys involved reports it to the guards. After the failed escape he is sent to solitary confinement for three years. When he gets out he kills the man who told the guards about the escape plot. He is then given a court appointed lawyer (Slater), who defends him at the same time, brings the illegal practices at Alcatraz in the public eye.

Today is our first music Friday! My choice for this week is Ke$ha's new song Blow. This seems like it is a good dance song, something that you are going to hear in a club. It is very easy to move to and the song its self sounds great as well. I really liked the video. It has Ke$ha and James Van der Bleek in a gun fight at a dance. The gun shoots out rainbows across this the room. I thought that the dialogue between the two of them was funny. I think that this is a must see video. Tomorrow's topic is movies, so let me know if there are any must see movies. Email them to So what new or old songs are you guys listening to?

St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope you all wearing green. Today I am up in Milwaukee visiting my aunt. I had a nice drive up here yesterday. It took me about four hours. It was a very nice clear day, with light traffic. It is so nice getting to see my family. It has been a while since I have seen them. We have a lot of things planned. I am going shopping, see a movie, maybe out to the clubs, and to my little cousin's school tomorrow night. Sounds like it is going to be a very fun weekend and a good end to spring break. I think that I am going to start having everyday as a theme on here and tomorrow's is music. So if there is a song you think is good and everyone should know about. Send it to my email at

Spring Break

Since my spring break starts tonight after my class. I thought I would write about my plans. I am planning on going and visiting my aunt in Milwaukee. I went up there last year during the winter and it was nice. I am hoping that it will be much warmer so I will be able to see more. I met so many nice people up there and I hope to be seeing them again. I know this is the opposite way most college kids go during Spring Break, but I love going to see my family. I am not sure what all is up there, but I can't wait to find out. So I am wondering. Where are you going for Spring Break?

What are you reading?

For Christmas this year I got a nook. Which I love by the way. It is nice being able to have all my books in one. Going through all the list on Barnes and Noble I have found some good books. I found a series on there about a girl that is a troll. The first book is called Switched. The next book I read after that book is I Hope The Serve Beer In Hell. It it a very good book. I have just bought the movie too. I can't wait to watch it, I'll let you guys know how it is. So, what books have you been reading?

I thought I would talk about my favorite show today. GLEE! It seems to be one of the shows where you either really like it or really dislike it. I don't know to many people in the middle. For those of you who do not know what it is about, it is based on a high-school glee club in Ohio. I like the fact that they take really popular songs and redo them. Most of them are really good and I have heard some the are better then the original. The story line is great too. Sometimes there is a little bit to much drama for me, but that doesn't last to long. So let me know what you think? Do you like it, dislike it? What song do you like or not like that they have done? Let me know.

Dieting and Workouts

The first thing I need to do is to stop drinking soda. I also need to start working out more. I am going to ride the bike we have at home. I am going to start out doing that for 30 mins a day. I need to learn to eat right as well. My big thing is to learn when I am full and not just eating to be eating. Does anyone know of any good workouts or workout music? Just let me know?

Time to Catch Up!

Well, it as been a while since I have posted. For that I would like to say sorry. I have been really busy but that is no excuse. Much has happened in the almost two months I have been off here. I started back at school. I go two evenings a week for three hours. I am enjoying my classes and have a surprising favorite of the two. Speech, I thought that I would hate it, but I have has so much fun in there. I think it is because the class is so out-going that always makes it fun. There is a lot going on at work as well. I have switched deptments. I am now back on the sales floor. I work in diary/frozen. So, I guess if you need to know anything about either just ask.
I checked today and I am at 260. I guess this is good since my weight went up. This means it is going down again. I do need to start working out more and drinking less soda again. I went about 3 weeks without it, until I gave in and started drinking it again.
I am excited. Spring Break is less then a month away. During that time I will be going to WI to visit my aunt. I can't wait until then. Last time I went up I had so much fun.
Well, I am going to get off here now. So, just tell me what kinds of things you would like to read on here.

My 2nd Weigh-In

So this is my 2nd weigh-in of the year and I lost YAY!!! This week I am down to 259.8 so that is 3.8 lbs. It feels so good. My goals didn't do so well though, but on a side note I have been soda free for a week today. Today is also the frist day of school. At the school they have a fitness room that is $10 a sem. I am going down today to pay for that so I can workout more. My goals for this week are to eat the two fruit a day and workout a the school. I will let you know how that goes next week. Thank you for reading today and sorry I haven't been on for a couple days.

Well, it's that time again, time for school to start back up. I am a little worried about going back, since I haven't been for a year. Then today I get an email saying that they had to cancel one of my classes. So, I had to go down to the school to take another one. When I get there I am looking through the book and, there is so much to choose from. I finally found a class that was open. I have been really looking in to getting a degree in business. I then, went to the business office and got some papers, only to find out that a degree in business management and office administration are only three classes away. I think that, I will get a degree in both. Wow planning for school takes a lot.

If any of you are like me then, when you are working on a goal or diet, you can get a little down. I have learned two ways to deal with bad times from my family. Those two things are music and food.  Music makes me feel so good. I need to work on using the music to make me feel better instead of the food. I think music can be very powerful. There is a song that has come out not to long ago. Firework by Katy Perry has a really good message. It is so good to hear that you can do it. I will put a small part of the song in my blog today.
 Katy Perry Firework lyrics found on

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

If you have not heard this song, you should get can really boost up your mood. Let me know what songs inspire you?

Summer Time 2011

This is just some wishful thinking, because it is so cold. I am trying to think of how warm it will be then. This summer I would like to take a trip to somewhere that I haven't been. I'm not so sure where I would like to go but somewhere fun. I think maybe NYC. There is so much to do and see there. I would love to see the buildings, parks, and all the big sites. I would also, like to go to England. I have been to a few countries in Europe but, not the UK. I love history so this would be the perfect place for me to go.
Where would you like to go?

A new year brings a new ME!!!

So the new year is upon us and like everyone else, I have made some goals. I'll share some of them with you.
1.) I would like to lose weight. I would like to get under 200 lbs.
2.) Get good grades. Since going to college I have had some problems with grades. So, I will be taking less classes. This will give me more time for each class.
3.) This summer I would like to go somewhere that I haven't been.
4.) My newest goal is to see where this blog takes me. This will be fun and differnet for me.

So, now I am going to ask you. What kind of goals do you have set to the new year? How do you plan on getting there?
