Votes Needed

Hello Everyone,

  I want to tell you about a remarkable lady that I work with. She was in a horrible car accident and almost lost her life. Through exercise and will power she has completely recovered from her injuries and is living a wonderful healthy life that inspires me daily. Please read her story below and follow the link to vote for her photo in Fitness magazine.

Recovery Thru Fitness

Submitted by: sonjamqueen

My most important fitness accomplishment was regaining my life thru exercise/strength training after a severe auto accident. There were numerous injuries/obstacles to overcome. Doctors said I would need surgery and would not be able to do certain things, like picking up over 20 lbs. and I had a 3 & 6 yr old. I couldn¿t imagine not being able to do simple every day things. When I was brought to the ER, I flat-lined so obviously I¿m here for a reason, so giving up wasn¿t an option. Once I was able to move on my own, I slowly started to walk. Figured one step at a time would add up. Sure I had set backs, pain of doing daily things were overwhelming at times. Exercise had been a way of life since I was 17 so I knew I had to get my muscles working again to recover. Slowly I began rebuilding, both physically and mentally. Amazing how cardio exercise changes a negative emotion into a calming ¿I can do anything¿ mentality. Weight training allowed me to strengthen and rebuild muscle. Things that I couldn¿t do well due to my injuries got better. Not only did I NOT have surgery, I exceeded MY goals. It¿s our choice to stay strong & fit so we can endure things that come our way. Exercise makes the difference in how I feel about me, a secret I discovered long ago. It¿s my ¿anti-depressant, feel good, I¿m in control, yes I can¿ secret thru physical recovery, heartaches, divorces and everyday stresses of life. I hope this will give encouragement to anyone facing difficulties.

Hey everyone, in case you don't know LeAnn over at Magical Memories is my sister-in-law. So I always know when she's doing an awesome giveaway, and this is defiantly one of those times. So go HERE to enter!


So we had a hectic weekend! We took the girls to the play ground on Saturday, which we haven't done yet so that was fun. The girls loved the slides but didn't care too much for the swings. Then Sunday it was my dad's 60th birthday cookout, OMG the wind would not stop blowing. Tin foil went flying everywhere, the balloons were going crazy. So after about an hour of that we moved everything back inside. Next year we'll just go to a nice restaurant. LOL I have tons of photos but haven't had the chance to even take them off my memory card. I hope to have them up soon.

Saint Patrick's Day

In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, I wanted to post some photos of my trip to Ireland back in May of 2006. My dad and I took a trip to England, Ireland, Scotland, and wales, a trip I will never forget. These were in Kilkenny Ireland, and somewhere else, not sure we saw so many Loch's they began to run together LOL

American Idol

So last night they had to pick songs from the year they were born. Since I'm 29 years old, these don't seem that old to me, LOL. Here are the ones that I loved......

 I still love this guy, to have all that he has and perform as good as he does, Bravo.

Wasn't too happy with song choice, never was a Nirvana fan, but I still like his voice.

And my new favorite finally showed up to the party, where has this guy been the whole competition?

I still liked Pia and I think Karen can do so much better, so I look forward to next week if she doesn't go home. As for the ones I think will land in the bottom there are these

Please share your thought if you watch!!

Ok, so my husband started working for Amway about six months ago. If you don't know Amway it's a company that sells everything from makeup to cleaning supplies. He asked me nicely to give him a shout out on here so, here's my shout out. Please go here and browse the many selections of products. All the products are earth friendly and good for you, no harmful chemicals. Below are my favorites that I've tried and love and still use LOL

This is the skin care system I use and it's wonderful!

This is the foundation, it's the only one I've used that stays on all day.
And this is the cleaning bundle we bought six months ago, some of the containers are still half way full. Even with weekly usage, a little goes a long way. All earth friendly and most important kid friendly.

American Idol

Ok, so who had a chance to watch American Idol last night? There were some really great performances and sadly some really bad ones. My favorites are below, I love Casey, he sings soul music and that's one of my favorite types. I also love James, he can sing almost anything and he sounds like the original people on most of his songs. I only like two of the girls right now and that's Karen and Pia, although I didn't think their songs last night were all that great I know they can do better. And last but not least I love Scotty, he's the kind of boy I want my girls to grow up and marry. He's so sweet  and good looking. I have no doubt he'll go on to sign a contract with a lable and produce some great country music in the future. So who were your top picks from last night?

Casey Abrams
James Durbin
Karen Rodriquez
