So busy.... can not catch up.

I have not been able to consistently blog. I have been really busy. I am going to try to be better. Quick rundown of how things have been going this February:

1. I have been watching a lot of the Olympics. I love every thing about it except the Curling.... what an annoying sport (Sorry to any one that likes it)

2. I have been really focused on my calling in the church. I am teaching a lot and really focused in the lives of the girls that I teach. I am really good friends with 2 of my girls moms and they like to invite me to do things with them. Activities this month have included New Beginnings (an introduction to the young women program for any new beehives coming in throughout the year) Baptisms for the dead, Personal progress and this upcoming Tuesday hip hop abs at my place! We are having a little health and fitness lesson.

3. I blogged a little bit ago about how I thought there was a Cougar in my yard. Well about a week ago people found and killed a Cougar less than a mile away from my house. So I am convinced that there was for sure a cougar in my yard that day.

4. Hercules has been growing really big (I will post a lot of pictures of him probably tomorrow because my little nephew Benjamin loves to look at him)

5. Work is really busy lately. We added a new member to the office staff which requires a lot of training and time. Also sales have increased so there is more of my regular job to do.

6. I did hit 10 pounds down 3 days ago so I will need to post a pic soon and here is to the next ten!

7. I have been more OCD than normal I cleaned out my basement and have been in a deep cleaning mode.

That is pretty much what is going on and I am going to try to be better about posting.

PS: Note to Nancy. I did get your Valentines cards and loved them! I have been trying to Skype you guys but every time I log in you are offline. I wanted to skype Hercules for Benjamin. Hope all is well. Love you guys.

I really love the winter olympics!! I REMEMBER WHAT I DID ON FRIDAY NIGHT NOW!! I WATCHED THE SOCHI OPENING CEREMONIES! Here is what I did today (in no particular order):

Cleaned the house

Grocery Shopping

Visited my little sis

Went to Ikea and bought a shelf

Built a shelf from Ikea

Watched the Olympics

Did a puzzle

Made Cookies (for Young Women New Beginnings)

I have not weighed my self this week so I don't know if I have hit 10 lbs down...

Sleepy Friday

I had another log day at work and was tired the whole time. I cant remember what I did after work but I did go to sleep.

Hard to blog....(Thursday)

I just need to suck it up and play catch up for a minute. Thursday was busy I was at work from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM which are hours that I used to work but am not  used to any more so that was tough. Then I left work to go to zumba but the instructor texted and said that she needed to cancel for the night so I came home and went to bed.

One laid to rest..... One more gone

Today was a little emotional for two reasons.

Reason #1: Today I had the opportunity to attend the funeral for sgt Cory Wride. He was a great police officer that worked for the Utah county sheriffs office that was shot in his car. This was a sad day for officers and their families. He lived a great life but died a tragic death. There were thousands of officers in attendance and it was so wonderful to know that I am a part of this police officer family and the support that was shown was amazing.

Reason #2: Today I found out that a girl that I student taught 2 years ago hung herself and died because she was bullied and could not take it any more. She was quiet but really smart and beautiful I am so devastated and found a letter that she wrote to me when I left saying that one thing that she learned from me is that she could be anything that she wanted when she grew up all she had to do was put in  a little effort. She will be greatly missed. I am glad that I got to know her.

Today was also physically exhausting.

Only Reason: I went to help with a relief society activity in my Sister in laws ward and I did my zumba routines full out! I was so sore the next morning and I don't think that I have ever sweat so much in my whole life.

Today was just a rough day!

Where has this week gone?

I thought that I had caught up but then my week happened. It was an emotional, physical, and mentally challenging week. I can not even remember what happened on Tuesday which is where I left off on my blog last. I know I did Zumba and ate around 1400 calories but that is all I can remember.

Still catching up....

I am almost caught up from my lack of posting over the weekend. Last night was a little boring. All I did was gather up all tax documents that I could find so that I can begin filing taxes. I once heard that when you have a home there is some sort of tax credit so I am hoping this is still true.

I did my 1 hour of Zumba and was sweating like crazy this time. (Sweat is a good thing! I have to keep telling myself that)

My fit bit battery needs to be charged so I did not track my calories very well today because when I am not wearing my fit bit I seem to forget that the app on my phone still works.

Super Bowl vs Harry Potter

I have never been a huge fan of sports so Super Bowl Sunday has never been a huge part of my life. So while most people were watching the Super Bowl, I was finishing up my Harry Potter weekend. Of course I took a break from Harry Potter to go to church and do an hour of Zumba.

For those of you who are following my weight loss journey I have decided to switch up my work out each month. January was considered my Hip Hop Abs month. I Did hip hop abs every day in January except for 4 days out of the month. February is my Zumba month. I already go to a Zumba class three days a week but I also have the Zumba fitness game for X-Box. I decided that I would do Zumba for an hour every day this month and see if I can trick my body and get out of this plateau of 9 pounds down and get to ten.

Any way that is how I spent my Super Bowl Sunday.

Harry Potter:#1 FAN

I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I can't figure out why.....

It could be the fact that the first Harry Potter book came out when I was 11 and I was seriously hoping that I was going to get a letter to Hogwarts ha ha.


It could be that it is just such a well written story that I love it.


Every three months or so I have to get my Harry Potter fill in so I watch all 8 movies every three months. I also read all 7 books twice a year. I am a little obsessed.

That is what I did with my Saturday ( after 1 hour of Zumba, cleaning the house, and grocery shopping)

The weekend blues....

It appears that I have a problem posting on the weekends. I promise I am not lazy just busy! Except I was a little lazy this weekend. Friday was tough at work I did not get a lot of sleep due to the recent tragedy in the Utah police family. I was up all night while Cory was at work. It is not the most pleasant thing to watch your husband go off to work and deal with crazy people.

I did 30 min of hip hop abs today and then went straight to bed. I was so tired from the long night I had.

I honestly can not remember what I ate.
