Hehehe! I am being so good right now... and damn it, I am proud of me! For starters, I have been back training hard with my old personal trainer, Tony. I really missed training with him! Its really strange but for some reason when we work out together I get really confident with the weights. I am lifting way more than I have been able to training with anyone else. He's just a really great trainer, he keeps me really motivated and pumped! Today I was pushing 50 lb. dumbbells on the incline bench and it was only my first day back doing chest. He told me that he doesn't know any chicks that can do that much. Its all in the pectorals hun! LMAO! I remember when I was training with him before, I was in the best shape ever! I am sure that it won't be too long before I am there again. I have been getting my cardio in every day and the results are already showing. Thank god for muscle memory! I have also been doing awesome with my diet lately. I am eating right thanks to Fitness Fuel. Fitness Fuel is a company that makes meals for busy people (like me) that want to eat healthy but just don't have the time to cook. They deliver your meals to you 3 times a week. All the food is delicious and its great for you too. I am really happy and proud of myself that I have been doing so well with everything!
Funny thing is that it has translated over into my personal life as well. I hung out with my sister the other night. We had so much fun! We went out dancing and had a great time together. I also saw an old friend of mine, Jamie, a girl that I played soccer with back in the day. We were awesome friends back then however we lost contact when she went off to college. Back in December she read the article about me in the Orange County Register and contacted me via my website. I invited her to a taping for the tv show I was on (WOW) and she showed up with her hubby (who's a great person as well). We all spent some time together last week and we are going to see each other again this week. Nothing has changed as the time has passed. Jamie and I are still the closest of friends. Its really good to have her back in my life again. Speaking of old friends, my friend Celeste (the Christina Aguilera look-a-like) and I have been hangin out too. She gave me some pointers for an audition and it helped me out quite a bit. (Please keep your fingers crossed for that one!) I really value my friendships these days more than anything else. As I've gotten older I have found that these are the things that matter most in life. To love and be loved, to surround yourself with caring and positive people. I feel extremely lucky and not a day goes by that I forget it! I just want to thank everyone for their kindness lately. It really means a lot to me. I sure hope you are feeling great too! Oh, and be sure to read The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama. I have told many friends about that book lately and so far they've all really liked it a lot.
Peace, Love, & Green M&Ms,
