It's been forever since I have blogged. Sorry if this gets long... I just have a lot of blabbing to do. First off here is an update on life in Chubbuck. One word to describe it is Busy! Phil is always working... and a lot of times when he isn't working I am. The few nights we are both home we have been out shopping and whatnot for Christmas. My whole lifestyle has changed since we moved here. Now I work some nights for Phil to help out at Subway. I wasn't too excited at first, but it has turned out to be not so bad. Sometimes it is hard not to be at home playing with Kayden. When I started I felt like I was neglecting him. At least I still get to spend days and a lot of other nights with him. He is getting so big and he is super fun. I've decided that this stage is one of my favorites so far. He is such a doll! I need to post pictures of him. My camera just broke so I haven't taken too many lately. Luckily I'm getting a new one for Christmas so I will have to post pics soon.

Since moving here I went and got a Gold's Gym membership. Amazing and so worth it!! I love having access to a pool and hot tub when I want, and the daycare is affordable. It even helps that Kayden enjoys going to the daycare. I go to the Gym every morning... unless my trainer tells me that I am not allowed to work out on specific days haha. I have almost developed an obsession with working out. I have even been working on eating better so I can finally get rid of the rest of this baby weight. It's a miracle for me to be eating veggies! haha that is one of the most difficult things for me... along with not eating the super bad but tasty foods (aka chocolate). Since I have been working with my trainer for five weeks (I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging, I'm just proud of what I have been able to accomplish) I have lost 9 lbs and 10% body fat. :) I have lost two inches around my belly and one inch around my hips. I still have a lot of work to get where I want to be, but this is only the beginning.

I just found out about this twelve week challenge they do at the gym starting in January. You do a before picture and an after, and basically the person that has the biggest difference in the twelve weeks wins. I hear it can get pretty competitive. They have different age divisions that you enter in to win a smaller amount of money, and then I think they have a winner out of everyone. I would be in the 18-30 age group. I am still debating on whether I should do it or not... I want to cuz I wanna win, but at the same time I am scared to try my hardest and still not win. That would be difficult for me for some odd reason. I'm also nervous cuz my super awesome trainer just moved away a couple days ago. He set me up to go with another guy, but it's still hard to get all comfortable and set just to feel like I'm starting new with someone else. I really think I'm gonna do this challenge but I am pretty much hounding the trainers and my husband about whether I can really do it or not. haha I am needing people to tell me I can really do it. Seriously I am constantly asking people if I could even stand a chance. Especially if I have to compete against men. I swear men can get results easier than women! haha I just need to get the confidence and go with it! I won't lie I was scared to even start training with a Personal trainer. haha it didn't help that my personal trainer is like this pro MMA fighter, has taught people in the military how to do hand to hand combat, and has a rep for his clients needing an extra sweat towel. Also his last name is Hell.... seriously as if that's not enough to scare a person! Now that I just gone with it and actually tried I've learned that there was no reason to be nervous. I love having a trainer and if I were rich would have one perminently lol! I just wish I could get to the point where I feel confident going into this competition and working with Mitch (old trainer) a little from long distance and starting with my new trainer. It's not really even a big deal, but I wanna try to win for some reason. I dunno. Maybe any of you that know me and my personality can tell me if I can really do it... lol I sound pathetic I know.

Anyways Christmas is soooo soon! Hopefully all of you have happy holidays! Maybe I will get to see some of you while I am in Star Valley for a short period of time. :) Merry Christmas everyone!
