Our monetary goal for our mission trip is to raise $6,400.00 and we’re at $620.00. Mr. Pac Man is chomping away at the dollars! See him go?

This pie chart…ur…um…I mean PAC MAN is to represent where we are with our goal, and where we need to be.

Can you help him open his mouth wider??? If so, please email Justin and I at

Better now...

Ok, one week down...and its getting easier. Praise God!

I think I'm too A.D.D. to just stay on an eliptical, stationary bike, or treadmill 4 days out of the week. On my "nothin' but cardio" days, I think I'm gonna have to go outside or get in a raquette ball court or something. I just get TOO bored.

I can't believe it...but my 3 "weights days" are my favorites. I think its because I'm changing things up and not getting bored.

Any suggestions for my cardio days?

Remember that episode of “The Cosby Show” where that old man was tap dancing, then he’d look at Bill and say “CHALLENGE”…then Bill would do a really silly tap dance in rebuttal and say “CHALLENGE”???

Well, I think that most of my friends already know this…but, I’ve began my very own version of “The Biggest Loser”. I have a doctor and a “trainer” (she’s not really a trainer, but she’s a “work out monkey” that knows her stuff) holding me accountable and helping me through a VERY intense 13 weeks of physical training until my mission trip in July. (see previous blog entry for more details)

I’m calling this transformation…(drum roll please)…


For (4) thirteen (13) weeks, I will read the bible daily, eat right, work out for 1 hour every day minimum, and pray for the team that’s going on the mission trip.

Philippians 4:13 (get it?...4 / 13…13 weeks) “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”.

…so, maybe you’re not going on the mission trip, but can you pray for us? And maybe you don’t need to loose weight, but can you remember me in prayer as I try to? And maybe you already work out, can you encourage me to?

I need to get this thing copyrighted...cause DANG…that’s brilliant!

Protein, Chocolate Royal , 5am, Adam, Toprol and 20...


Protein?...Chocolate Royal?...5am?...Adam?...Toprol?...and 20?

Protein=the types of foods (good lean meats and LOTS of veggies) that I'll be eating for dinner every night, 7 days a week until I leave for my mission trip.

Chocolate Royal= the flavor of Slim Fast Optima that I'll be drinking for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week until I leave for my mission trip.

5am= the time I'll be arriving at the gym to workout for 1 hour 5 days a week. I'm sleeping in on Saturday and Sundays dang it! Although...I still have to work out for an hour.

Adam= the name of the doctor / friend that is whipping my butt in to shape for this trip.

Toprol=the blood pressure medicine that I've been on for 3 FREAKIN' YEARS that Adam thinks may have contributed to my weight gain, sluggishness and fatigue. Gee thanks "Dr. poo poo head that prescribed that stuff to me 3 years ago"...GEE THANKS!

20= THE NUMBER OF POUNDS THAT I'VE LOST SINCE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it! I stepped on the scales this morning at Adams clinic...and I've officially lost 20 pounds since Christmas. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel like Adam has me on my very own "Biggest Loser" TV show...but minus the cameras and EXTREMELY embarrassing "before" pictures in short shorts and a sports bra. NO THANK YOU.

"Blades of Glory"...glory indeed.

Great googly moogly this was a HILLARIOUS movie! I laughed my buttocks off at "Taledega Nights"...but let me tell you...I nearly pee'd my pants and cried like a baby for "Blades of Glory".

Oh, it is cheesy...there's no way around that is a cheese ball factory. But, oh my heavens...I just couldn't get enough of it.

I highly recommend going to see this movie for a good hee haw laugh.

I give it two jazz hands and a triple axle.
